Mortgage Pro with Experience in Real Estate, Financial Services Joins Rapidly Growing PrivatePlus
Atlanta, GA, August 11, 2015 --( PrivatePlus Mortgage, a division of Private Bank of Buckhead, has named Julie Russell a Vice President and Mortgage Banker. She has more than 10 years’ experience in the mortgage industry, along with experience in real estate and financial services.

“Julie’s background in real estate, including as an agent and an appraiser, along with time spent in financial services, gives her a broader understanding of our industry and our clients and their needs,” says Dan Smith, President of PrivatePlus. “She is truly invested in helping people purchase and finance their dream home.”

Russell holds a bachelor’s degree in behavioral science from National-Louis University, and attended the University of South Florida in Tampa, studying political science and philosophy.

“I take a consultative approach to what I do,” Russell says, “taking care to discover the goals and needs of my clients and colleagues and business partners. I consider myself a door opener and if I can open the right doors for the people I work with and serve, they reward that service with repeat business. Even better, I usually become friends with my clients.”

Those who don’t know her from her “day job” may know Russell for her other talents, as she also is a singer, having sung at Walt Disney World and in Atlanta for restaurants and conventions, including holiday parties for condo associations. She volunteers with the Breast Cancer Foundation and March of Dimes, and was co-chair of the Atlanta Special Olympics, which was held at Emory, and served as Chair of the Morningside Monumental Ball in 2012.
