Years of experience in real estate – both commercial and residential – as well as a background in business, including both a degree in entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California and previous tenure in the White House, have shaped Julie Secrist into a well equipped sales professional, eager to help clients sell or buy their perfect home around the greater Newport Beach / Laguna Beach area. Having previously sought out commercial site locations on which corporate restaurants built new stores, she has an intimate knowledge of the legal aspect of contracts, as well as a shrewd business sense for tough negotiating.
Business-savvy Secrist combines her professionally honed negotiation skills, knowledge of the local market (she resides in the Harbor View area), and naturally magnetic personality with the most desirable working environment at Surterre Properties, Inc. Confident in the powerful support system Surterre offers both agents and clients, she’s certain her success in the residential real estate industry will continue to grow.
Having sold homes to friends and family, and having forged lasting friendships with new clients, real estate continues to intertwine with her social network. Secrist frequently receives return clients, and consistently gets referrals as well.
A tirelessly motivated businesswoman, Secrist is a member of the National Association of Realtors. A contributor to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), she’s a proud mother of 2 children, ages 6 and 9.
