Hello and welcome to my website! Thank you for visiting!

Whether you're new to this corner of the Sonoran Desert, or know Tucson well, I welcome the opportunity to help with your residential real estate needs.

As a native of Tucson and a 26-year resident of the Catalina Foothills, I know the many neighborhoods and quaint enclaves of the city and surrounding areas, with the Catalina Foothills, the Campbell Corridor (Sam Hughes, Blenman-Elm, Winterhaven), Casas Adobes, Oro Valley, and Tanque Verde Valley being my areas of specialty.

For clients who will be selling their home, I specialize in creating and marketing premium listings and to achieve this, work with an exceptional team of contractors/vendors, as well as artistic and creative marketing professionals to ensure that my clients' homes stand out in the Tucson market. Working for maximum profit for my clients and advocating for their needs is of utmost importance to me. There are many brokerages, programs, and professionals available in Tucson. Before you decide to sell, I hope we meet. I know you'll find that my team and I have an incredible selling package for you. Also, during your home's listing, if you have a need, I will be the one answering the phone. When traveling, I like to stay in small boutique hotels, and I like to provide professional yet personal, responsive 'boutique service' for clients placing trust in me.

I also welcome the opportunity to work with both local and relocation homebuyers. Some of my clients have purchased a new home only a couple blocks away from their present home; others have traveled from both the east and west coasts, and several states in-between to find their Tucson home. I team with industry specialists who join me in creating an experience as stress-free as can be-- and optimally, even a fun buying experience. These specialists who accompany us on the venture of purchasing your home vary from lenders and title/escrow officers to inspectors to first-rate contractors who share excellent reputations in their various fields. And of course, I'll be with you, each step of the way.

A client just shared with me, "I wish I'd taken the first step months ago! This is much more streamlined than I thought it would be."

--And I welcome the opportunity to share information about the Tucson market, a specific home or community, etc.. I'm also here to provide a valuation of your home, if you'd like to have this info at hand. Please feel free to call or e-mail; there's no obligation to sell or buy.

I belong to the following industry organizations and hold the following nationally recognized real estate designations, in order to provide expertise for your transaction:

REALTOR® - National Association of Realtors
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)
Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist® (CLHMS)
Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI)

Thank you for reading! --Between Tanque Verde Valley in the east, and Honeybee Canyon in the west, if a sale or a move is in order, let's get you to your next home!

Client Reviews

Agent was great but would not recommend getting a loan through Long Mortgage Company

Julie did a wonderful job of accommodating my needs in a very limited time frame.

Over the last 6 years we have sold two properties in Tucson. On both occasions Julie Kelly has represented us as our Real Estate Agent. Each time she provided professional, courteous and expert guidance. When setting our listing price, her knowledge of the Tucson community and her skills at researching the real estate market provided us with fair and generous estimates of our property values. Subsequent appraisals supported her estimates on both occasions. Her attention to detail and evaluation of all home improvements resulted in extraordinary sales prices. We recommend Julie without reservation to anyone who wants to sell or buy in the Tucson area.

Julie Kelly did an outstanding job as my agent in helping me with the process of buying my home. She advocated for me every step of the way. Even though I pretty much had decided where I wanted to buy she still went over and beyond in helping me look at other properties and make sure it was the right decision for me. In the end I decided to have my home built by Delwebb and she was the agent representing me. I could not be in town while my home was built. She checked on it’s progress each week and kept me informed. When I finally came a month before completion she picked me up at the airport and took me to the home where my car was being stored. She met with me with the supervisor of my build numerous times and went above and beyond what an agent would need to do. She referred me to an inspector and coordinated our inspection and made sure Delwebb followed through with things that needed to be completed. She also saw to it that I was compensated by Delwebb when we had to pay for an extra inspection due to them being behind their deadline. Finally even after all was completed Julie continues to be a resource to me in finding handymen, electricians, blinds and shades, etc. Julie is the total package and whoever gets her as their realtor is very lucky! Thanks Julie.
