North Idaho Dream Life: An Adventure for all


As a transplant to the North Idaho area almost two decades ago, I understand the challenges and changes that happen. My husband and I moved with four school age children with no jobs, but had sold our home in CA and bought here. There was a transition period, but we are so thankful we made the move! It was a great opportunity for all of us and 3 of our 4 children love the area and live close by as adults. We were able to accomplish things that were only dreams in our other state. We have also enjoyed farm life, with dairy goats and chicken our current passion, attend a great church, volunteer in the community, and have a more relaxed life all around. I highly recommend Idaho to all! Check us out.


Embarking on your real estate endeavor is a significant milestone, and as your realtor, I am wholeheartedly dedicated to ensuring a seamless and fulfilling transition to the splendor of North Idaho. With years of expertise in this market, I offer unwavering attention to detail and honest, open communication as we navigate the varied landscapes of Kootenai, Bonner, and Shoshone counties together. Rest assured, your quest for the ideal sanctuary amidst the tranquil beauty of Coeur d'Alene is my top priority. Let's join forces to transform your vision of a dream home into a reality.


Rooted in a deep passion for both family and real estate, my professional path reflects a balance of educational prowess and familial dedication. Embarking on a vocational shift that honors my wholehearted commitment to family, I transitioned from homeschooling to public school teaching, allowing me to remain accessible for those I cherish most. With a B.A. in Public Relations and a Masters in Education Leadership, I bring a unique perspective to the real estate landscape. My past role as a California realtor fused with my educational experience has armed me with the ability to expertly navigate the market, ensuring I can guide you toward the ideal property in North Idaho. Embracing the joy of farm life and handcrafting goat soap and cheeses, I've crafted a fulfilling life that intertwines with my love for helping others discover their own piece of paradise. As your realtor, I am eager to apply my dedication and expertise to your real estate aspirations as we journey toward finding your dream home.


“Julie Leonard helped us to sell a lot in Kootenai County. She is an experienced and conscientious agent we highly recommend. She was always looking for our best interest, making sure we stayed competitive in the market. She was always within reach, responding to phone calls, and reaching out herself in our interest, in such matters as timber exemption, well drilling, or having the lot connected to power. We will soon continue engaging with Julie again as home buyers in North Idaho.”

Julie is an excellent real estate agent, it was a blessing to have her sell our home. She is very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. I would use Julie again to represent us with any real estate transaction in the future.”

“Julie went above and beyond to get us into our new home. She would keep us informed weekly or as often as needed. It was difficult being new construction, but Julie got the job done. I would highly recommend her to friends and family.”

“My husband and I were raised in CDA and have known Julie for over 15 years. We have worked with other realtors over the years and understand the property market. We’ve recently listed (and sold) property with Julie and found her to be very professional, personable and thorough in communicating with us. She goes above and beyond to ensure all our concerns are addressed and we highly recommend her services if you are looking to buy or sell real estate.
She’s a hard worker and you’ll enjoy getting to know her!!”
