Legacy Properties West
Real Estate Agent

Julie has worked in the Real Estate industry in some form or another since the 70’s starting with selling Lakefront Resort property in Minnesota. Over the years, other endeavors would include ten years of Real Estate Development in San Francisco and the Bay Area, seven years of owning a Real Log Home franchise in Truckee, CA, 8 years of working as a Relocation Specialist and selling Real Estate in San Diego for Coldwell Banker.

Julie graduated with a BA in Education from Michigan State University. She went on to receive her Master’s Degree from Central Michigan University. Over the years, she has held teaching credentials in five states, has dabbled in teaching but has always come back to Real Estate as a career now licensed in both California and Colorado.

Locally, Julie and her husband came to Durango the first time in 1992 to develop The Lightner Creek Inn, a 10 room Bed and Breakfast that is still operating today. After selling the Inn in 1999, Julie and Richard went to Vancouver, Canada to build a 48’ Ocean Passagemaker that Richard designed with the help of a naval architect. Once built, they lived aboard and cruised Alaska and the Pacific West Coast until returning to Durango 8 years later where they built their final home.

Living only three miles from Durango Mountain Resort, Julie volunteers one day a week for Guest Services. Besides skiing, singing in a large church choir for years in San Diego was another passion. Honesty, integrity, humility and an eye for detail are qualities that make any individual in any line of work an asset to their companies and their clients. Julie has years of experience in Real Estate with a proven track record exhibiting these characteristics. Her focus is to make every transaction and every person involved “special”, one as important as the other no matter what. Since buying and/or selling a property is one of the biggest and most important decisions one will ever make, the second most important decision is who to choose for your Real Estate Professional. You have many options today. Julie would like to be that choice. Make an appointment for a free market analysis, whether you are buying or selling.
