In commercial real estate since 1999, and with several years of retail business ownership, Julie Smith provides a comprehensive approach to each transaction, is results-oriented, and purposefully listens to identify the unique needs of each client to achieve successful closings.
As a native Texan living in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area since early childhood, Julie is well acquainted with the local landscape. Julie’s laid-back nature, combined with her professionalism, creativity, and head for numbers and strategy, bring to her clients a diligent, detailed, forward-thinking negotiator.
Prior to launching her career in real estate, Julie directed the operations of a boutique retail-leasing concept. Under Julie’s leadership, two locations of this concept were opened on-time and under budget. Julie negotiated the management buy-out of the business, the master lease, and more than 80 subleases with top tenant-merchants. Julie’s vision for the favorite local shopping destination acquired recognition 2 years in a row as “Best Boutique in Plano.”
Said K. Dewitt, of Collin SBDC: “Having spent the better part of my career in corporate banking, buying, selling, and then later owning businesses, I have a unique perspective about business owners. Knowing Julie Smith from early in her business development, I have seen her persistence in the face of numerous obstacles; I have watched her press forward, undeterred, when other business owners would have given-up and walked away.”
Julie says: “Among the most rewarding aspects of what I do is helping client’s navigate and achieve their real estate goals!”
