A native of Royal Oak, Michigan, Julie moved to Atlanta after graduating high school to work alongside her father, John Sadlier, a pioneer in re-gentrifying in-town neighborhoods. She earned her real estate license in 1973, just as Atlanta was exploding and becoming noticed nationally. Julie grew up with Atlanta and has continued her father’s legacy of living, working and selling real estate in Atlanta’s older communities. Julie has been married to her Southern-born beau, Judson Powell, for 30 years.  They raised their children, Jack and Jamie, in the Morningside area and have been heavily involved with the Morningside schools as well as the Atlanta Youth Soccer League.  Julie now also volunteers at the Basilica of Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  She has been honored by the Atlanta Board of Realtors with the Phoenix and Crystal Phoenix awards and has been named to the RE/MAX Circle of Legends.   She currently holds the National CRS (Certified Residential Specialists) designation and has completed the Accredited Buyer-Broker program.  With her strong work ethic and professional reliability along with her excellent people skills, Julie has earned the respect of her numerous clients and fellow realtors alike.
