I would liketo introduce myself. I am Julie Houghton-Duffee, an Associate Broker with Warren Real Estate in Ithaca NY. I was in the mortgage industry, but went stir crazy sitting behind a desk. I absolutely love Real Estate. No two days are the same.
My Great-Grandfather was one of the founding fathers here in Ithaca. He was the co-owner of the general store on Cayuga Street..Treman & Sons. The store is gone, but there is a plaque on the original site. He was in the Ithaca Yacht Club, and had the first motorized boat on Cayuga Lake. Unfortunately he passed at the young age of 27 of Typhoid fever, leaving his wife Leeta to care for and raise 4 children. She took a job as treasurer of what is now known as The Tompkins Trust Company.
My father went to Cornell. After graduation he purchased a farm from my grandfather. It has grown to be the largest in Tompkins County. I know what hard work is. But I was lucky to have a great family. As a wedding present, my grandfather gave my parents some lakefront property. Summers were great! We swam, waterskied and spent every moment on the raft that we could! My best memories of growing up are there on the lake.
In the winter we skated on the pond. Our neighbors loved it too! We had a little shack with a woodstove, mom would make us hot chocolate...it was the best! Lots of hockey games were played on that pond. I remember a couple of times we skated on the lake. The lake doesnt seem to freeze like it used to though.
I also am an equestrian...born with boots on I guess. I rode hunter jumpers, and still get goosebumps watching a great three day event! I hung up the show helmet long ago, but love a nice trail ride with my daughter or dad. I have a lovely Hanavarian and a Quarter Horse these days.
I grew up in this great area, but left it for awhile. All the time yearning to return. I knew that I wanted to raise my 2 children here. We came back over a decade ago.
It is such a wonderful area. The lake is so inviting, we spend time at my grandfathers house every summer. I have skied since I was 4, but my son conviced me that I should take up snowboarding.....well, it took some doing, but I was back on the black diamond trails in a couple of months...and I love it!!! The skis have been collecting dust for 8 years now.
We have a wonderful log home, 2 horses, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and thru re-marriage 2 young men, and 2 beautiful young ladies....life is good here! I absolutely love Ithaca, contact me and I can show you why!
I've dealt with many realtors and I have to say that Julie Houghton is absolutely first rate. She is bright, thorough, prompt, sensitive to her clients' needs, and completely trustworthy. As a descendent of one of Ithaca's oldest and most respected families, she brings an extensive perspective to her work.
Julie Houghton is not only the most professional real estate agent we have dealt with, she is also the most diligent and caring. She made the process of purchasing our home totally stress-free as we knew any questions or concerns we had would be answered promptly and with over-the-top service. We cannot praise her enough and are fortunate to consider her a friend as well.

The Best Real Estate agent, She made the purchase of our first home the best experience. Her hard work and dedication saved use time and effort. I'd recommend her over any other agent.
Julie, Thanks for everything
George and Suzie Taylor
We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Having never sold a home before, we had some concerns and fears. Julie offered great advice and support from beginning to end. She went the extra mile and helped to pull the entire process together quickly and easily. Our home sold in less than 24 hours at a price we were very happy with. We recommend Julie to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, ethical realtor to partner with on such an important event.
Deb & Alan Pierce
"Julie sold my house in less than a week! From sale to closing Julie maintained the highest level of professionalism and integrity." Debbie Hildreth
Working with Julie to find the perfect property on which to build our small, environmentally sustainable home was an enjoyable and successful adventure! Julie really went the extra mile (literally and figuratively) to help us with our very specific wish list, and her knowledge of the area and the real estate market made it possible to find the property of our dreams. Julie has remained a good friend and is someone I hope to work together with for years to come!" Sheela Stainton
Julie is super responsive and went out of her way to show us a lot of properties before we bought. She knows the area very well and really helped us find our way around. I recommend her highly. So much so that I have purchased 3 properties with her. Michael Whelan
I had a great experience working with Julie. To find what we wanted, Julie had to search high and low and be very patient with us. We looked at many properties, and eventually found the perfect fit. Bill McClure
"Julie was extremely helpful finding us a home after relocating from Colorado. She showed us lots of homes, kept us informed of new homes on the market, and developed a solid sense of what we liked and didn't like. She was very accessible and a joy to work with!"
Lisa & Dave Stensland
Julie--Over the last month, during the cold winter weather, Jane and I enjoyed the warmth and comfort of our new home. I want to take this opportunity to offer our thanks to you for all you did to make this possible. As a realtor, you clearly understood our housing needs, and quickly and efficiently showed us properties that met those needs. You were always available to answer our questions, and your attention to detail made the complex home buying process seem simple. Your professionalism and ethics are beyond reproach. Through it all, you demonstrated kindness, caring, and friendship. We thank you for all that you did.
Regards, Len Weinstein
We really appreciate everything you did to help us find our new home. You were very prompt getting back to us on any questions or concerns that we had. We enjoyed working with you and will definitely recommend you to other people in search of property.
