Get to know Julie Bethel

I am the secretary at RE/MAX First Choice and my agents are very familiar with the Park Rapids, Nevis, Menahga, Osage, Akeley and surrounding areas.

This place I call home is a great recreation area with fantastic lakes like Big Sand, Fishhook, Belle Taine, Potato, and Long Lake are just a few of the lakes in the area I fish and boat on.

We work, live, and play in this community, some were born and raised here, others moved because they fell in love with quiet of the lakes area, the warmth of friendship you get the minute you come to visit.

As secretary here at, RE/MAX First Choice I get to see all the ins and outs of what it takes to put a home on the market.  I also answer phones, email, update MLS, facebook, twitter, blogs, active rain, listing sheets and anything else my broker and agents need.  I love this job and the day to day challenges it presents.  One day in real estate is as different as the next, just like night and day.  But in this world of real estate changes you either change or go with the flow, I feel our company is a rock standing the test of time.  We are a part of this community giving back in so many ways, from the Relay for Life to ringing bells for the Salvation Army, our foundation is unshakable in these changing times.

I have several pass times out of work, quilting, photography, blogging

(sites that I have outside of work)




I also love to hike in our local state park (ITASCA) when I am not busy helping my husband with our horse ranch.


We at Re/Max First Choice take our profession very seriously and it is our goal to perform in a professional manner with integrity that will exceed your expectations.  My agents know the area and the lakes we boat, fish and have lived here most of their lives. We know our lake area and want you to use our knowledge to help you find the lake home of your dreams.

Our office is located near Itasca State Park, 

home to the Headwaters of the Mighty Mississippi.

We also have near our doorstep 5 state forests, Huntersville, Badoura, Paul Bunyan, Two Inlets, and the Smoky Hills.  Throughout the state park and forests we have miles and miles of snow mobile, hiking, biking, horseback riding, 4 wheeler, and ski trails, including the Heartland Trail and North Country Trail. 

Our small town (where parking in the middle of main street is okay) of a few thousand people in winter, triples in size when our snowbirds (retired people that go south) come back to the lakes area for spring and summer.  I look forward to being one of the snowbirds someday when I retire, but until then this is home for me.  Come and see if we can make it home for you too.
