It’s with great sadness that we include this news. Julie Taylor Peters, a former president of the Darien Board of Realtors, passed away suddenly on January 15, 2023 because of an undetectable medical event. She was 53 and had been in perfect health prior.
Julie had lived in Darien for years, was a born leader, a natural negotiator, a fierce partner with any racquet, a gifted seamstress, and a very trusted friend. She had no limits to what she could accomplish and she had a natural ability to do it all with compassion, style, and that oh so beautiful smile.
Julie was a member of the Darien Board of Realtors since 2005. Dozens of families came to see Julie not just as their Realtor but also their jack-of-all-trades handyman, decorator, financial advisor, and therapist. Most of all, she became their friend. Julie's peers elected her President of the Darien Board of Realtors in 2019 and 2020. In 2020 Julie was also presented with the honor of Darien's Realtor of the Year. In December, she had been appointed to the Executive Committee of the statewide Connecticut Association of Realtors as Region 1 Vice President. Recently, Julie became the manager of the Greenwich and Old Greenwich offices of Coldwell Banker Realty where her skills in management and selling real estate guided nearly 200 agents.
She will be missed greatly and was loved by all of us here at the Darien Board of Realtors.
