Julie is an "almost-native" to Colorado and has lived here for 21 years. Though she serves all of El Paso and Teller County, her heart beats differently for the West side of town. Growing up in and around Manitou Springs, she has always had Garden of the Gods as her playground. Before diving into real estate, she worked for a local credit union in lending, banking, and mortgages. Her love of Real Estate branches out beyond buying and selling homes, as she's very passionate about the betterment of the community as a whole. At the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors®, she has been the co-chair of the Young Professionals Network, member of the Community Relations Committee and nominated member of The Leadership Academy. Now she serves on the Pikes Peak United Way Emerging Leaders Board as a young professional who is committed to the education and betterment of the local youth. She says that Realtors® don't have "free time", but when she's not on her phone, you can find her trying to escape in the mountains, spending time at her family's house, or enjoying a beer and a patio! She opened Colorado Lifestyle Realty with the goal of helping people find their perfect home, based around their specific lifestyle. Give her a call if you'd like professional and personalized attention, and a fun agent to work with! Live where you vacation!
