She worked for over 20 years as a Loan Officer and Loan Processor at lending institutions including Heritage Bank, Tacoma Savings and Loan, Security Pacific Mortgage, Key Mortgage Services and ARC’s Mortgage.
Julie obtained her real estate license in April of 1990. She and her husband, Pat, purchased Collison Realty in April of 1990, from Pat’s father Dayle.
