Real Estate Professional
Julia grew up in Sonoma, California but spent most summers on the East Coast with her family in Connecticut. She likes to say "the redwood trees and the cool breeze" brought her back to the Bay where she started her real estate career in San Francisco in 2009, joined Team Own Marin in 2015 and the rest is history! Her local roots, attention to detail and love for beautiful homes makes her a tremendous asset to her clients. On the board of the Women’s Council of Realtors Marin Chapter and a mom comrade a.k.a "Momrade" in the Southern Marin Moms Club, she likes being an active member in her community almost as much as she loves spending time with her daughter, Josephine and husband, Garrett. On any given day off, you might just find her entertaining at home with family and friends, hiking around Marin or heading out to the coast for local oysters and fresh air.
Kudos from Clients
Julia Fitzpatrick helped us navigate the complex Marin County real estate maze with grace and strength. When times were tough, she also acted as our real estate therapist which is much needed when making one of the larger financial decisions in your life. She helped me and my 8month pregnant wife find the home of our dreams in the town of our dreams. We look forward to growing old there! Thanks, Julia!

Julia was the best partner we could have asked for in our home search. We waited almost 10 years since moving to CA from the East coast, so we really appreciated her knowledge, patience and great sense of adventure! Although the agency is located in Marin, we ended up finding the perfect home in Sonoma, and Julia was with us every step of the way. Barr Haney and Whitney Potter also jumped in with advice and expertise. We would recommend this team, and especially Julia, to anyone needing a Marin County real estate agent to look for their next, first or forever home.

When we started looking for our first home in this crazy impossible market we thought it would be impossible but we were referred to Marin County realtor, Julia Fitzpatrick and the team of Barr and Whitney at Own Marin and we were so fortunate. Not only did Julia take us personally under her wing to show us parts of Marin since we were moving from SF, but she became like part of our family. She guided us through every part of the process, from the pre approval loan process, to disclosure report reading, through searching and being so patient even through a million questions and worries to within 3 months helping us close on our dream home! The negotiating strategy was what scored us this home and we are eternally grateful. If you are looking for a Marin County realtor look no further than Own Marin and Julia Fitzpatrick! They are golden.

In a real estate market with crazy prices, low inventory, and insane closing periods, Julia Fitzpatrick hustled to help us secure our first ever home in San Rafael. Once we moved in, her kindness and generosity continued as she welcomed us to the neighborhood. We would recommend Own Marin for anyone looking to relocate to (or within) the very best part of the Bay Area.

I can't say enough great things about Marin County Realtor Whitney Potter and his associate Julia Fitzpatrick...they are masters at what they do, great people and it is easy to communicate with them. Whitney and Barr listed and sold my Mill Valley home in 2015 and Whitney and Julia were my agents for my recent purchase of a home in Novato so I have worked with them twice. They have the experience and all of the skills you will need to sell or buy a house. Every detail is handled efficiently and timely by email, text and phone (they are like doctors "on-call"). Particularly strong is their negotiation skills and legalese; I felt like I had an attorney as part of my team. They also have fantastic resources. The mortgage company they referred me to was able to qualify me for a loan in 7 days and secure it shortly after, which made me a very competitive buyer. Once you are in contract it works like clockwork with their help....in order to place a competitive offer my inspection contingency was only 5 days so they arranged for a top Marin building inspector to come out the next day! Truly they are the best, and really friendly, no pretense. If you are looking for a Marin County real estate agent, I highly recommend them.
This review is long over due! In July we started the process of looking for a new home in Marin, but being relatively new to that area, we knew we needed someone with an intimate understanding and knowledge of Marin. Look no further that Own Marin and Julia! From the beginning, we felt very comfortable with Julia, she took time to understand our needs and was able to answer all our questions about the local area. She was there with us throughout the whole process, going above and beyond, and when we found the perfect place, it was all hands on deck from her and the team to make sure everything went smoothly! We can't say enough great things about Julia and Own Marin, they are a top notch team, you can't go wrong!

Julia Fitzpatrick, Allie Fornesi and Barr Haney are truly "top notch" Marin County real estate agents. We sold our home in Hamilton in less than a week as their team of professionals including stagers, painters, handymen etc. swooped in to create a "house ready for market". They have the right attitude and knowledge for the job. Besides, they are easy to work with, up-front and informative on all levels. If you are thinking of selling or buying in Marin, contact Team Own Marin for the best results. You won't be disappointed.
