Engel & Volkers
Julie Ragusa’s passions—photojournalism, culinary arts, animals, and roller derby—have taken her across the country and world, but, upon returning home to New Orleans, Julie discovered that one passion outweighed the rest: real estate. After founding the first roller derby league in Belgium, being named creator of the “best biscuit in Mississippi,” and a 10-year career as an Executive Chef, real estate provided the key to success and fulfillment.
“I have not looked back,” says Julie. “My goals and my successes continue to motivate me, and my mission is to empower others. I assist them in real estate transactions from beginning to end and long afterwards.”
As a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Volkers, Julie thinks of herself as a one-stop concierge and experienced guide that can lead to the most rewarding venture in people’s lives. Julie credits excellent communication, strong ethics, and market knowledge for her success. In a sea of realtors, she has learned how to stand out and go the extra mile for clients. In 2021, she ranked in the Top 10 agents in her office.
“I have combined all of my past careers and experiences as an executive chef, photographer, film producer, roller derby rock star and pet sitter and streamlined them into my career as a realtor,” says Julie. “As a result my style is a mixture of creativity, vision, passion, aggression and dependability—I think outside the box and can multi-task anyone under the table. Simply put, I want to make my clients happy,” she says.
