Michael "Bo" Julian is a rare type of Realtor: His low-key professionalism and warmth belie his total command of a multi-faceted, multi-generational family business that for 30 years has set the style and the pace for both custom home development and residential sales in prestigious Orlando markets. A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE: Julian, who as Broker-associate/Owner, heads all sales at Julian Properties Inc., has worked with several luxury home builders and has assisted celebrities, professional athletes and international clients with their real estate needs. Among his many repeat customers are the newlyweds for whom he helped find their first home on a popular segment of HGTV's House Hunters. A FAMILY TRADITION: Since starting with the firm in 1996, Julian has carried on a tradition begun by his grandfather Carl Julian, now 94, who from 1956 built many of the residential developments in the Dr. Phillips, Windermere and surrounding areas as owner of Julian Construction, and continued by his mother and partner, Carlene Julian. Besides specializing in luxury home sales in Central Florida, Julian Properties Inc. has a property management division and an in-house mortgage firm, Julian Mortgage Corporation. GROWING IN THE NICHE: At the heart of Bo Julian's success in the "boutique" real estate business is the loyal customer base that his world-class service has created and the referral business that he has garnered by becoming a steadfast and trusted advisor. It is not lost on him that his success will only ever be as great as the endorsements of the clients that he serves, and so he strives to remain vigilant about their ever-changing needs and desires. Currently, the needs of the client call for an expanded service area into local coastal areas such as New Smyrna Beach and Vero Beach, strategic planning and acquisition for multimillion-dollar real estate portfolios, additional commercial real estate presence, and an expanded staff of the finest professionals to go with it. AWARDS/HONORS: Julian has been prominent on numerous "Top 100" real estate agent lists in Orlando publications. He has a broker's license, is an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS), and is a Graduate of Realtors Institute (GRI).
