    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    DUE DILIGENCE The effort made to avoid harm to another through conscientious attention to a task. Diligence inspires confidence, and results in excellence. Julie Gardner joined ERA Lambros Real Estate in 2006, after nearly ten years practicing Real Estate Law in Missoula. Julie now works in both residential and commercial real estate, relying on her experience as a real estate attorney to effectively negotiate and guide her clients' transactions.

    Working with clients looking to buy or sell their homes is especially rewarding for Julie. Surrounded by an unspoiled natural playground, tempted away from responsibilities by gorgeous weather, and sustained by a tenacious community spirit, it's easy to see why Missoulians love living here. Assisting her clients - from first-time home buyers to empty nesters - is truly an extension of loving all that Missoula has to offer for Julie.

    Julie teams with her business partner Peter Lambros to serve Missoula's commercial real estate market. Julie and Peter have worked together on a wide variety of transactions from leases for small, local businesses to selling landmark buildings and developments. As a Leasing Agent for Missoula's Southgate Mall, Julie has the unique experience of working for a locally owned property, while bringing multi-national companies to the community. Seeing Missoula's economy grow and its business sector expand in ways that benefit our community is the highlight of her career in commercial real estate.

    Julie's infectious enthusiasm for her profession is evidenced by her continued success in the industry. Ranked #1 among ERA Agents in Missoula, and in the top 10% of ERA Agents nationally, Julie and her dedicated, professional staff of Licensed Assistants, provide Missoulians with the knowledge and attention to detail essential to successfully attaining their real estate goals.

    Julie's education and background is unique among Missoula real estate professionals. Originally from Indiana, Julie is a third generation REALTOR, following her father and grandfather into the profession. She attended Indiana University where she earned a B.A. in Economics and Spanish, a Masters of Public Affairs, and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the I.U. School of Law. Julie also spent two years as a Graduate Assistant at the Indiana University Center on Philanthropy - an experience that has informed her commitment to community service in Missoula and beyond.

    When away from work, Julie and her husband Phil enjoy all that Missoula has to offer, and work hard to give back to the community they love. Julie currently serves on the Boards of the Providence Montana Health Foundation, Five Valleys Land Trust and The Missoula Writers Collaborative. Julie works diligently to ensure that Missoula continues to have top-notch healthcare for everyone, protects its awesome open space, and offers unique and meaningful educational opportunities to local children. Raising their three daughters in Missoula is the exclamation point on why Julie and Phil choose to live and work in Missoula. If you are in need of professional real estate services, Julie and her team would love to hear from you.

    Julie was incredible to work with, both in buying and selling a house. She and her team are incredibly attentive, very quick to respond, and know the area very well. I always felt like they had my best interest at heart in every step of the process. I would happily recommend Julie to any one of my family or friends!

    Julie Gardner was an amazing agent! She went above and beyond for us in every way! She met with us when we were available, worked around our crazy schedules to always make it work for us. She was knowledgeable about the market and the specific needs we required for our purchase. Also her team at Lambros Real Estate was always working overtime for us to answer our questions and look deeper into situations that required extra attention. I can honestly say that without a doubt Julie Gardner was an amazing agent for us and I am sure that she will be for you too!

    When it comes to Missoula real estate, Julie is simply the best. Her understanding of the market is second to none, as are her relationships with all the key players (fellow brokers, financial institutions, inspectors, contractors, architects, you name it). But even more than her unparalleled skills and contacts, Julie is an absolute delight to work with. She LISTENS to her clients, and gently guides and suggests without pushing or pulling. When hiccups arise in the process (as they almost always do), Julie is steady, calm, and creative -- a problem solver of the first order (it no doubt helps that she's also a lawyer), who brings a wise and graceful touch to every encounter. She is extremely generous with both her time and spot-on advice, and is backed by a team of other spectacularly competent and wonderful women. Julie is also the most honest of brokers: at every turn and with every issue that arises, her integrity and trustworthiness shine through. It's no wonder that she is widely regarded as Missoula's finest. We've worked with a number of realtors on the east coast. None holds a candle to Julie. If you're looking to buy or sell in Missoula, look no further. You want Julie at your side.

    Julie and her team provide the consummate end-to-end experience. I purchased a property from afar during the pandemic. From first contact to closing, Julie went above and beyond to ensure that things went smoothly and that I was up-to-date on everything that was happening. I'm incredibly happy with my home and I can't imagine a better team to close the deal!

    Julie and her team did an excellent job! They helped us buy a home from out of town. They were very fast to respond when we wanted to look at different houses And were very assertive to our wants and needs. We will use them for any of our real estate needs in the future.

    We would highly recommend Julie for your real estate needs. She went above and beyond after listing by doing virtual tours and working with us on in-home visits.

    Julie is the best real estate agent in Missoula. This is a fact as far as I'm concerned. Julie has the highest standards for buying and selling and seems to know the market well. Julie has an entire team who will all take on different tasks to help you along the way. We didn't like our first round of pics so we did a 2nd round - SOLD.

    We had a great experience with Julie and her team. They were attentive, knowledgeable, and just a text or call away. They made the purchasing process enjoyable and fun. I cannot recommend Julie enough and am only saddened that I couldn't give her six stars.

    Julie and her team are the loveliest. They are communicative, efficient, professional, and extremely hard working. I felt thoroughly supported during the often frustrating process of trying to buy a house in a town where the housing market is super tough for buyers. I love my new house and am so grateful to Julie and the rest of her team for sticking with me! Can't recommend them highly enough!! Thank you!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

    Diane & Todd gave Julie 5 stars out of 5
    Julie showed us several lake properties before we chose and never rushed our decision. Her office handled all the details of the transaction with the seller, the home inspector and the title company. We're confident that we purchased a lake property that will hold its value and we will enjoy for years!
