Julia Maggard joined the team of Highlands Realty Inc. in the late summer of 2021. She chose a career in Real Estate after having her own home-buying experience. She was raised in the mountains of southwestern Virginia where she learned the concept of never meeting a stranger and took it to heart. Her love of people took her to the University of Virginia's College at Wise where she pursued a hybrid Bachelor's degree in Business & Communications. During her tenure at the college her final paper was published in conjunction with the Center for Appalachian Studies. She went on to become a store manager and spent eight years in retail before transitioning to real estate. Her ultimate goal in this new chapter of her career is to help all of her clients navigate their way through their real estate transactions, so that they can find their way Home.
