Collison Realty LLC was founded in 1965 by Dayle Collison, who paved the way in establishing our Realty Company as being based on Hard Work, Ethics, and conducting business with Integrity. Our reputation as an honest, ethical, trustworthy and hardworking business entity has continued to follow our company founder since that day.
In 1978, Pat Collison joined Collison Realty after graduating from Washington State University in the first Real Estate Program. Pat and Julie bought the business from Dayle in 1990. Pat ran the business for many years, as well as being active in the real estate community serving as president of the Multiple Listing Service, and Director of the Tacoma Pierce County Association of REALTORS, he also held many other elected, and committee positions.
Unfortunately, a heart attack at age 49 in 2005, took Pat’s life, and his wife Julie took the necessary steps to take over as broker. With Julie’s extensive background in title insurance, mortgage lending, real estate sales, management, and negotiation, she provides a valuable resource to her clients. Julie is also the proud mother of four as well as earning The Tacoma – Pierce County Chapter, Women’s Council Of Realtors® Prestigious “Entrepreneur Of The Year” Award in 2010.
