Happy Halloween Monday! I’m so excited to introduce you to local mama and real estate rockstar Julie McCarthy. Julie is making waves as one of South Shore Sotheby’s International Realty’s rising agents. She’s smart, she’s funny and she knows her sh*t! When she’s not busy working with clients on buying or selling their home in this crazy ever-changing home market, she is taking in all this amazing area we call home has to offer. Let’s get know Julie!
Where are you from originally? I grew up in Medfield
How many kids do you have? Names and Ages? Callan (5) and Lyla (3)
Where do you call now home? How long have you lived there? Scituate. Moved here in 2016
What is your favorite thing about living here? Of course, being by the ocean and the awesome community!
What do you enjoy most in your free time? Spending time with friends and family of course. Were usually checking out a new restaurant or going to some old favorites!
What is your favorite part about the work you do? I love making the phone call to tell a client that their offer was accepted! That initial excitement makes it all worth it!
That has to be one of the best feelings! What do you find to be the toughest part about being a working mom and balancing it all? Honestly, there is just always something to do, someone to pick up at school, some activity to go to. But that’s another amazing part of being a realtor, is the flexibility.
What is the best advice you have received as a mom? That we’re all figuring it out and no one really knows what they’re doing! 🙂
Quote or mantra you live by? Don’t worry about things that you can’t do anything about!
That is great advice. We all need to say that ourselves more! Are you involved with any local organizations or charities? I recently joined as a board member for the Scituate Cohasset Newcomers and Neighbors. Cara Williams and I are head of social events!
You and Cara have such great chemistry and I can’t think of a better duo to plan events! Okay, speed round on your favorite local businesses and places…let’s go!
