“As a Realtor in Columbia since 1982, I have experienced many changing market conditions as well as the tremendous growth of our great city. It has been exciting for me to have the opportunities associated with being a Realtor and I feel fortunate to have found a career that I am passionate about and have been successful at year after year. Because of my passion and dedication for my job, it has translated into helping hundreds of families fulfill their dream for home ownership. Although we are considered sales people, I don’t feel my job is to sell but has more to do with listening to peoples needs and helping them fulfill their goals by working hard and being an honest advocate for my clients. Over the years I have formed a Team of Realtors and staff who have the same philosophy and work ethic as me. Together we strive to offer top notch service to best serve our clients and customers.

Julie Wilford-Gold has been a Licensed REALTOR since 2003. Julie has had broad experience helping people sell their homes in Columbia and, as the town has grown, even more experience helping people relocate to the area. Landing here with their young family in 1998 when her husband accepted a faculty position at the University of Missouri, Julie has personal experience discovering Columbia. Prior to moving here in 1998, Julie worked for the Michigan Legislature and the Governor of Michigan as well as a state-wide, non-profit art gallery. Not wanting to go back into the political arena and given her genuine enthusiasm for her new hometown, real estate seemed a good fit. Julie enjoys every aspect of the business and helping her clients.
