Assistant to Jane Matthewman, Director in the Private Client and Residential Conveyancing Departments.  Julie is based at our Stafford office in the Residential Property Team and works alongside Jane Matthewman.  Julie works more specifically with new builds, leasehold, retirement apartments and provides a personal and high-quality service to all Nowell Meller clients.

Clients: Julie mainly works with elderly or retired clients who are moving after many years of living in one place.  This can prove to be quite a stressful time and Julie takes time to reassure our clients during this process.

Julie has a helpful, friendly and professional manner which puts clients completely at ease when dealing with them either over the telephone or face to face.  She always has the clients’ interests at heart and does her utmost to ensure that any transaction proceeds smoothly.

Julie's Approach: Julie is very patient, understanding, helpful and knowledgeable.

Personal Background: Julie was born and raised in Stoke on Trent.  She lived in Middlesex for a short period of time when she first got married, before moving to Stafford in 1986 where she settled with her husband and three children. 

Julie is very family focused away from the work environment and enjoys reading, eating out, going to the cinema and spending time with her family, especially her young granddaughter.  She also enjoys being involved with her local church where she attends most weeks with her husband.   

Career: Julie took a 5 year career break in 2009, along with her husband and youngest son, to work with a charity in Romania primarily supporting the poor.  Julie refers to this time as a “once in a lifetime experience” where she says “I got so much more out than I gave”.
