Hi, I’m Julianne Bowman, but please call me Juli. I’m not like most real state brokers you meet. You see, the business of buying and selling homes isn’t just some transaction to me. When my clients' dreams become real, getting to share that moment with them becomes priceless.Every one of my clients has a story, and It is a privilege to be part of that story, by listening to their dreams and helpingthem move forward. While pursuing my B.S. in business management at the University of New Hampshire, I began studies in real estate, was licensed in 1989, and have never looked back. I returned home to Oregon after graduation, getting my brokers license in 1993. In the past twenty-four years I’ve worked during not one but two real estate bubbles, and worked with a diverse group of clients with a variety of goals: relocation, move-up homes, condos, vacation, retirement and investment properties. The work can have challenging moments, but I truly love it. A great home buying experience is all about communication; knowing what your goals are and working with my team of escrow, title companies, lenders, inspector and other agents, I rely on my breadth of experience, skills and patience to bring each deal together and close on time. My husband and I make our my home in Portland’s Alphabet District, although I still keep a real connection to nature because of my roots growing up on a ranch in southern Oregon. A wine enthusiast in both the business as well as the art and science of making wine, a club member of Domaine Serene and others, my one of favorite activities is discovering hidden gem wineries. I also enjoy hiking Columbia Gorge trails, frequent Portland’s many Farmers Markets, travel abroad, read voraciously and play with my sons’ Siberian Husky, Fritz. The next time you’re poised to enter the market, I’d be honored to work with you to achieve your dreams.
