But she chose the best for last, becoming a managing partner at Empire Home Loans Inc., a people-centric mortgage firm in Sacramento, CA. Julie took that leap and was tasked with the most pivotal component of the whole operation: PEOPLE!
“My strengths are found with people,” says Julie. “Coaching people, hiring people, and leading people – not just managing. So, my mandate with Empire Home Loans was always simple: to recruit the right talent, develop them, and put them in positions to succeed.”
For instance, one of Julie’s goals with Empire is to use her platform as an owner to empower other women in business, helping them shatter the glass ceiling in the real estate and mortgage fields.
That's no small feat, but if anyone can do it, it's Julie, who's graduated from some of the finest leadership, communication, and management courses in the world like the National Speakers Association NSA. She's also served as the PR Chairperson of the Sacramento CAMP Board for six years, co-chaired the Women's Round Table – a business mastermind group, and graduated with distinction from Future Leaders, CMBA through Pepperdine University.
Not only will she serve as an ambassador to loan officers who want to join the Empire Home Loans team and learn how to thoroughly outpace the competition but use her vast experience to create the best user experience in the entire mortgage industry. Anywhere. Period.
“It’s my job to establish our marketing and branding, but, most importantly, to drive a winning culture. The main reason why the three of us are such great partners is that our talents are all so different. I say culture eats strategy for breakfast … and Anthony says a great strategy should include culture. Of course, we’re both right – as long as the client benefits!”
