With over 23 years experience as a Belleville Real Estate Agent, I have the expertise to help you buy or sell a home. I’ve worked on residential homes, condominiums and multi-units. Best of all, I grew up in the Quinte area and love being a Belleville Realtor®. I know the area well and can inform you on what locations will best suit you and your family. Every city has it's "up-and-coming" and declining areas. Understanding which areas these are can help save you thousands in resale value down the road. Or it can help protect your family by moving into a safer area.

“I believe in matching people to the right home.” By asking the right questions, I help to determine the right home and the right neighbourhood for you and your family.

“I believe in family values.” Having been married since 1992 to my husband Tom, I understand the importance of family and how vital it is to choose the right area to raise your family in. I can also help you get more information on what is going on in the community. From determining where to go for a great meal or where to find out schedules for soccer or hockey. I work, live and participate in the Quinte community.

“Buying or selling a home is about my clients and their experience.” I always keep my clients informed throughout the home selling or buying process. I like to provide home buyers and sellers with a checklist to help make sure they don’t forget any important steps along the way.

“I want my clients to have a great experience when buying or selling their home. I know this can be a stressful time and I am determined to help make it an enjoyable process.”

On a more personal note...

I have been married for over 30 years to Tom, my friend and husband. After living in Guelph for six years while we finished our post secondary education, we couldn't wait to move back to the Quinte area.

Having grown up here, it is in my blood. I love the beautiful Bay of Quinte. Tom and I have lived in many homes. Our very first purchase was a 30 foot sailboat and we docked it in Victoria Park for a season and lived on it!  We have had a variety of boats since, both sailboats and cruisers.  Our second home was a 4-plex in Trenton and we fixed it up and sold it a couple of years later. We have also owned a condo so can help with any questions you have on those and we now currently live in a single family home.

While growing up here in the Quinte area, I have lived in Prince Edward County (down on South Bay), in the City of Belleville and City of Trenton(now Quinte West), north of Belleville and somewhere in between. I love this area and love showing my clients it's true beauty.

My husband Tom grew up in Calgary and we met when he moved here to finish high school. Tom and I currently have one dog, River.  Yes she is our world!

I have lived in the Quinte area since 2002 and have known Tara for over 10 years and excited to be part of Team Tara Lyons.

I grew up in Grey & Bruce County, and am a farm girl at heart. I helped my parents with the horses, beef cows, pigs and chickens, harvesting crops  and slugging hay,  mucking out stalls and all the chores that go with living on a farm. I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty!

I met my husband when we both attended Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. He grew up near Stirling and when we graduated from college in 2002, we moved back to the Quinte area where I worked as a Graphic & Website Designer for over 14 years.

We started out renting the second story of a home in the old East Hill area of Belleville. We got married in 2006 and purchased our first home in 2007 from Tara in the same East Hill area as we loved being close to the water and all the amenities. Our first and only son was born in 2009. In 2016, we decided it was time to try country living, so we had Geertsma Homes build us a custom home just north of Belleville. Building a new home was such as easy process when you’re working with a great builder. Tara joined us to meet with a few different builders in the area, and Geertsma was the right fit for us. We chose the land and the positioning of the home on the land, customized the house plan we liked to suit our needs, chose our paint colours and finishes for the interior and exterior with the help of their designer and off they went to work! We didn’t have to worry about a thing. We had a couple on site meetings to determine where we wanted lights switches & receptacles, lights, etc as well as what ways the doors would swing and the layout and of the features of all of the kitchen & bathroom cabinets. A few months later, our brand new home was ready for us. We love the protection of having the Tarion new home warranty. It gives us peace of mind should an issue arise.

We are thoroughly enjoying country living and our 16 acres of land with lots of trails to explore. We have one cat, Lexi and a German Shephard, Karma who loves her daily trail walks and space to run freely.

The Quinte area has been perfect for raising our son with so many great schools, programs, activities, parks, attractions and businesses. I understand first hand how important it is to find the right home and area to raise a family. I am happy to assist you in determining eligibility & transportation for local schools once we find your perfect family home.

I joined Team Tara Lyons in 2018. I use my first-hand knowledge as well as my design and marketing background to help clients buy and sell their homes. If you're looking to work with a REALTOR® that you can count on and who will give you an honest opinion, I'm your REALTOR®! Feel free to call me with any questions at 613-242-8960 or you can email me at julie@taralyons.com, I always check my email and I will get back to you right away.

I am looking forward to helping you buy or sell your home.
