A Charleston native, Julia Hawkins grew up in Hobcaw Point, Mt. Pleasant and attended Porter Gaud in her early years. Julia went on to study Business Administration at the College of Charleston, and spent a semester in Florence, Italy enhancing her Business studies and cultural knowledge. After undergraduate studies, Julia traveled around the United Kingdom and Italy before returning to Charleston and earning a Graduate Gemologist Degree. Her passion for luxury jewelry and business were married in this career, where she traveled searching for the perfect inventory for her Charleston customers. After purchasing a home in Mt. Pleasant in 2008, she planned and oversaw a complete renovation of her new home, taking it down to the studs and refinishing it wall to wall. It was during this construction that Julia realized her appreciation for Charleston homes and real estate. She joined Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty in 2015 and here she leverages her interest in the luxury lifestyle, real estate, and Charleston.

Julia has assisted me with 2 closings. Both times she has been very professional and an asset to the process. Both pieces of property have been very good value for the money.
We live in Atlanta and were looking to buy a house for our future retirement. Julia was so accommodating with working with us long-distance. She took lots of pictures and videos, and stayed on top of everything for us. And when we were able to make trips to Charleston, she made every bit of our time productive.
Julia grew up in the area, and although we thought we knew a lot about the area already, we learned so much from her ... things only a knowledgable local would know. She's very easy to work with, and we felt comfortable with her right away.
Although our circumstances changed for us and we had to postpone our plans for purchasing, Julia graciously stays in touch with us. And we will definitely be relying on her again when we're ready to restart our search.
