Julie Antunes

My extensive background in the real estate industry began as a Real Estate Paralegal and title insurance officer responsible for contract to closing administration of numerous residential real estate transactions. Expanding on my administrative skills, I subsequently managed a private law firm and a Legal Department of a Fortune 500 financial services company in Connecticut.  I am a former Vice President of the Commercial Real Estate Services & Administration Group of Bank of America and managed a portfolio of multi-million dollar commercial construction finance projects throughout the United States.

I hold a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree that enhances my knowledge and experience in ongoing day-to-day business disciplines as well as client representation interaction.

Upon moving to Arizona and recognizing my passion for the real estate industry, I became a Realtor® and an Associate Broker.  I am a member of the National Association of Realtors®, the Arizona Association of Realtors® and the Scottsdale Association of Realtors®. I also have specialty training as an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) enabling me to represent buyers at a higher educational level addressing the specific needs of today’s buyer of Arizona property.

I am proud to also hold the Certified Residential Specialist designation (CRS), an elite accreditation held by only 3% of agents nationwide who sell more than 30% of all homes nationwide. The CRS designation is the highest professional designation awarded to Realtors® in the residential sales field and the only designation based upon both educational training and sales volume.

As a Certified Residential Military Specialist (CRMS), this certification provides me with the pertinent knowledge, information and resources specific to the needs of our nation’s military population when buying and selling properties.

I am also a Relocation Specialist certified as a Preferred Agent with USAA and Navy Federal and have helped many clients buy and sell Arizona properties who come from all over the United States, Canada and beyond.

The recipient of numerous Awards for Customer Service and Sales Production Volume, I continuously strive to maintain the highest level of service and experience in the industry. This philosophy and work ethic affords me 100% Customer Satisfaction and continuous referrals from clients, friends and business associates.  I look forward to helping you, too!

Volunteering and giving back to the community is definitely a priority for me.  Animal rescue causes are near and dear to my heart.  I am a Foster Mom and volunteer Home Check Coordinator for Arizona Pug Adoption and Rescue Network (APARN) helping to place homeless pugs into their forever homes.  I also support several other animal rescue and no-kill shelters for domestic animals as well as wildlife rescue.  A portion of every transaction is donated to these and other worthwhile causes.

I am the proud mother of one wonderful son, an amazing daughter-in-law and two fantastic grandsons. Spending as much time with them is a top priority for me!
