Julie was born, raised, and educated in the Bay Area. After graduating from St. Mary’s College, she began a career in real estate.

Julie has an undeniable love for real estate, but her true passion in life is her family. Together with her husband Tony, they have four wonderful children: AJ, Rocco, DeLuca, and Lola. When not running the business, she loves to travel, entertain, and gather with family and friends. Life is a daily adventure, and although she takes time to enjoy the journey, she also believes “the best is yet to come!”
