Julie Leitzell brings a background in marketing, public relations and TV production to her career in real estate. Julie’s clients benefit from her well-honed negotiating skills, attention to detail, creativity and her ability to ‘produce’ results. Her stellar reputation for professionalism has proven to be a benefit to buyers in landing the home of their dreams whether they are looking for real estate in Magical Marin or one of the charming small towns in Sonoma’s wine country. Julie’s listings benefit from Julie’s marketing savvy and Sotheby’s worldwide reach.

As a member of Top Agent Network, an organization whose members are in the top 10% in Marin real estate sales, Julie is proud of the fact that conducting her business with kindness and compassion is a part of her success. A resident of Marin for almost 30 years, and also in Sonoma for three years, Julie has worked with many new buyers, and also downsizers who need help transitioning to a smaller or one-level home.

For buyers interested in a particular town or neighborhood, Julie provides presentations that analyze recent sales in a highly visual manner. Buyers appreciate the ability to compare price per square foot, lot size, remodeling levels, school scores and various amenities when they begin to focus in on homes they like in a specific neighborhood. Julie’s offer package is complete and professional, bringing in a higher percentage of ratified contracts. In the negotiation process, Julie is adept at achieving the best possible price and necessary credits for her buyers.

For sellers, Julie’s marketing plans include specifics on ad buys, web marketing, e-mail alert tools and creative open house strategies. She creates ads, web sites, flyers, videos, and other creative marketing tools as if she is marketing her own home. Julie has a portfolio of public relations hits including photos, mentions and feature stories in Marin Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, the Marin IJ, and a listing that became the cover story of the Sunday SF Chronicle real estate section. She’s a tech-savvy real estate expert who provides fast answers, personalized service and negotiating skills based on knowledge, confidence, and an unflappable demeanor. Her clients and fellow agents appreciate the fact that not only is Julie Leitzell a professional, but she is hard-working, patient and fun.

As an Emmy-Award-winning TV producer, Julie produced for a History Channel series, Entertainment Tonight, KPIX-TV’s Evening Magazine, MTV, and Home and Garden Television (HGTV) among others. She indulged her love for reasonably-priced decorating and interior design while producing for “Design Remix” on the HGTV Network. Julie became a Realtor in 2005 and successfully navigated the recession as a new agent. In 2014, she was instrumental in creating “Larkspur Fights Back”, the grassroots organization that successfully brought attention to the ill-fated plan of over-developing one of Marin’s most congested hubs. She’s a former public member of the Marin Independent Journal editorial board and was also a member of the Citizens Advisory Committee for Larkspur’s General Plan. Julie has two children, Christie, age 25 and Emmy, age 22. The Leitzells enjoy cooking, hiking, swimming, snow skiing, and the scenic walks and bike paths in Sonoma’s wine country and Magical Marin.
