Phillips’ Julie Johnson: Changing the World of Real Estate Management

Phillips Real Estates’ Julie Johnson 
Among Women Honored for Changing the World of Real Estate Management

Julie_JohnsonJulie Johnson, Director of the Residential Group at Phillips Real Estate Services in Seattle, Washington, is among a group of 70 women from the U.S. and abroad honored recently by the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM®) for their positive impact on the real estate management profession. Recognized for innovation, mentoring, community service, leadership and other laudable initiatives, Johnson and the other women identified range from senior officers of global real estate firms to self-employed entrepreneurs to site managers of single properties who are prized for the great work they do.

“In big ways and small,” said IREM® 2012 President James A. Evans, CPM®, “women are changing the face of the real estate management industry daily.  This was the impetus for IREM to identify Julie Johnson and  other women who represent the absolute best of what our industry can accomplish.” All of their stories – as told by those that nominated them – are featured in the March/April issue of IREM’s member magazine, the Journal of Property Management (JPM®).


Johnson was cited in her nomination for her passion for rental housing and believes it provides a valuable service to the community. She put this passion to work as the president of the Rental Housing Association of Puget Sound for more than five years. “With her incredible energy, she started supper clubs to help mentor rental owners, began a radio talk show for owners and residents, hired people who were very well qualified to help landlords, taught classes to landlords, helped keep them informed and represented them at different rental groups.”

An affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, IREM is the home for all industry professionals connected to real estate management – and the only organization serving both the multi-family and commercial sectors.
