After obtaining her Marketing degree from Danville Community College, Julie began her career as a sales associate/assistant buyer at Belk Leggett in Danville. After taking a break to be a stay at home Mom, her next career path took her to Danville Public Schools where she was a Food Service Manager for 20 years. In 2004, after her children graduated from college, Julie decided it was time to explore a career that had always intrigued her, so she studied to become a Realtor. Obtaining her license in 2005, she became affiliated with Wilkins & Co. Realtors. As you can see, customer service has been vital to all of Julie's career choices.

During her years as a Realtor she has been inducted into the Dan River Region Honor Society every year. She is very proud of this recognition because it not only honors Realtors for their real estate accomplishments, but also for their community involvement. Julie is on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of the Danville area and a member of Riverview Rotary.

She has served on the Dan River Region Association of Realtors Board of Directors for many years and in 2016 served as President. In January 2017, she was named 2016 Realtor of the year for the Dan River Region.

Besides her family, selling real estate is Julie's greatest joy. She loves meeting and getting to know people. She loves helping someone buy their first home, or their first home in this region. She also enjoys working with sellers. Helping people move on to the next phase of their life is very rewarding, whether it's moving up to a bigger home, or moving on to bigger and better opportunities.

A country girl at heart, Julie also enjoys selling farm land. Horse or cattle farms, hunting hideaways, or timberland, it doesn't matter, it's about being outdoors and being with others that appreciate the wide open spaces as much as she does.

Julie has also enhanced her Real Estate education by completing 96 additional hours of Realtor education and becoming a Graduate of the Realtor Institute.

Julie is married to her high school sweetheart, Lynn, and she now resides in the Brosville area. They have 2 daughters, of whom they are very proud and a 2 year old grandson.


  • We cannot begin to thank Madeline (Morris) enough for all the effort she put forth in helping us secure our marvelous home. From start to finish there were complications to be overcome. Madeline knew how much we wanted this home and went out of her way to make sure the transaction was finally completed. Madeline is a true professional and an invaluable resource for her clients. Thank you Madeline!!
    - Jane Reid
  • Bob Echols It would be remiss of me to not thank you for all you did to accomplish the sale of my property. I am so relieved to take this off my plate. Your professionalism has been exemplary, particularly in providing me with timely requests and updates. I certainly hope Wilkins and Co. appreciate you, as your customer service skills are awesome. Again, many thanks.

  • November 24, 2017. Great Job Wilkins and Company. Hampton and the team did us a fantastic job from the first call, to the first meeting with my Mother Mary and I, to meeting the team, to listing the home and setting up Video and Pictures, all the way through the close. My mother had owned the home for about 20 years and was moving to NC to live with family. She is 89 years old and had just came out of the Hospital and Rehabilitation Facility. Hampton and his team made me, and more importantly Mary, feel very comfortable with them handling the sale of our home. The market was very slow in Danville Va, and there were more than 700-800 homes on the market and it was taking 6 months or more to sell your home. Hampton and the team did our comps and priced the house so we could sell it before the Holidays. We had many showings and within a week or two had two offers. We sold the home in 2 1/2 weeks! WOW! UNBELIEVABLE! The Wilkins team then went on to handle all aspects of the close, attorneys, Cleaning, etc. They got the home ready and the buyers actually moved in early. The process had a few hitches but Wilkins and Company handled them quickly and we never really knew they even existed. We give them 5 out of 5 Stars. Excellent Job! We highly recommend Wilkins and Company for all your real estate needs.

  • We enjoyed an overall great experience working with Madeline and the staff at Wilkins and Co. Thank you for making our transition to the Danville area a most successful one.

  • It's difficult for me to give Brenda (or anybody) an "over-the-top" review. She is truly Top-Notch and at the same time, keeps everything simple and easy to understand. She makes you feel that YOU are important. She made my home buying experience stress free, exciting and most of all.....Fun! So she definitely gets an "over- the-top" review from me!

  • Madeline and Wilkins & Co made our move to Danville an enjoyable event!

  • Hampton was a gem with his tour and what a piece of history for Danville. We enjoyed the time immensely.
    - D.Jansen
  • Ray Earp, in short, is a class act. He kept us informed of the transactions which were going on. We found his demeanor to be most professional and he was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the sale. Ray is a tremendous asset to Wilkins & Co, a great agent, and now a good friend.

  • Madeline is a "miracle worker". I thoroughly enjoyed working with her - she is quite a cheerleader for Danville and very knowledgeable.
    - L. Aagaard

  • Brenda English has provided service and attention to detail above and beyond through our purchase of one property for business use as well as multiple searches for residential properties. Her reliability, persistence, and relentless effort to finalize a transaction is unusual in this day and time. In nearly 20 years of purchasing investment properties, I have met few agents with her combination of drive, caring attitude and service.

  • I am writing to let you know how much of a God sent angel Diron Clements has been. When we first began our journey in purchasing a home we told Diron exactly what we were looking for even though we were a little bit picky. Through the many long days and sleepless nights, it was nice to know that we had a real estate agent that understood our needs, wants, and our best interest in mind. He has gone above and beyond all expectations to get us what we were looking for. Some examples are meeting after hours, meeting in some of the coldest temperatures, and keeping us positive through it all. There are no words of gratitude to express how much we are truly grateful for everything that he has done. He has seen us break down after a house that we liked was sold before we could make a bid on it, but through it all he was there with a positive outlook. He always told us that there is one house out there waiting just for us. He has been very informative and has always kept us up to date on any information that he was given. I would strongly recommend Diron to any of my family or friends. I want to personally say that not only is he a great real estate agent, but we have gained a forever friend in him. Thank you Diron for all that you have done!

  • If it hadn't been for Julie, we would have never found our beautiful home. She listened to our wants and needs and worked hard for us. She is just the best! Thank you Julie for being a part of the best decision we have ever made.
    - L. and L. Zimmerman
  • Julie was fantastic to work with, very helpful and knowledgeable throughout the entire process. This was our first home and she helped us every step of the way!
    - B. Cochran
  • We were very impressed with Brenda, she went out of her way to meet up with my now husband and I whenever we needed being that he works 3rd and I work crazy 1st shift hours. She was available anytime we had a question day or night. Brenda made the process of buying a house less stressful. I do and will continue to recommend her as the best realtor.
    - Myia Petty
  • Madeline was wonderful! She was very attentive to our needs and made sure the sale was completed smoothly.
    - B. and L. Prescott
  • Brenda went above and beyond our expectations of a Realtor; she became our friend. My wife had to move to the area first, and find a place for us to live. Brenda helped us navigate a housing market in an area brand new to us. She helped us modify our expectations and review our budget. She was willing to look at many houses as she figured out what we were looking for. And when we finally found our new home she went the extra mile as she negotiated the contract for us. She cared about what our family needed, and worked hard to make sure we were in the house by our deadline. Whenever we had questions about the area, the house or anything else, Brenda was willing and ready to serve as a resource and help us find what we needed. Brenda - more than anyone we have met since moving here - was instrumental in helping us feel connected to our new home and community. Brenda is one amazing lady, and we consider her a friend, as well as a competent, caring Realtor.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Wilkins and Company Realtor, Julie Hughes, several years ago when deciding to purchase a house in the Southern Virginia region. Mrs. Hughes was able to accommodate my needs based on my tight schedule to locate and purchase a home. Mrs. Hughes was very knowledgeable concerning the process of purchasing a home, and listened to all my request. She went above and beyond what we expected. Mrs. Hughes was very helpful at every stage of the process, questions were answered promptly, and I was kept informed every step of the process which made the sale go very smoothly. Julie was extremely professional, and paid attention to every single detail. I look forward in working with Julie again.

  • Madeline has helped me on 3 occasions. She always has my best interest in mind throughout the process.
    - A. McCullough
  • Three words you want to describe your Realtor: patient, proficient, and knowledgeable. Julie Hughes possesses all of these qualities and more! Under her guidance we have bought and sold real estate and we would recommend her to everyone!
    - R. McKinney
  • Brenda is fantastic with customer service. She did a fantastic job showing houses and coordinating all the moving parts that eventually lead to closing! If you are buying or selling real estate in this area, Brenda should be at the top of your pick list!
    - Anonymous
  • I recently found the home I had searched for, far and wide, with the help of Brenda English with Wilkins and Co. She listened to what I was looking for, and worked diligently to make sure my needs were met, with attention given to what I was seeking. If it were not for her, I would have never found what I was looking for. She is courteous and professional, and will work hard to find your dream home or your next investment property!
    - J. Alderson
  • Brenda English exceeded all expectations that we could have ever had for a Realtor! She was such a joy to work with! She went well above her call of duty as a Realtor, and we can never thank her enough for all her hard work.

  • Dear Hampton Wilkins, I was very happy to learn that I was a chosen recipient of the DCC's 2018-2019 Wilkins & Co. Scholarship and I am writing this letter to thank you for your helpful financial support towards my education. I am a Class of 2017 graduate of Tunstall High School graduate. I chose DCC, not only because of its reasonable tuition, but for its unique programs. When I first began DCC after high school I was enrolled in the Radiology program, however for personal reasons I decided to switch to marketing specialization last semester. After I graduate and receive my marketing degree, I hope to find a career as a wedding or event planner. By awarding me the Wilkins & Co. Realtors Scholarship, I will be able to take my math, science, and health classes with complete focus. Your generous financial assistance has allowed me to be one step closer towards my education. GPA, and marketing degree. I look forward in giving back to my community once I begin my career. Thank you for your confidence to help me achieve my goals.

  • "Diron is an absolute pleasure to work with! We are first time home buyers, searching for our home sweet home. He showed me countless homes at my request (even though there was ZERO chance of us getting a few of them), and always with a huge smile! He took all of our requests into consideration and found us our perfect home, right where we wanted it! I highly recommend Diron for all your real estate needs!"
    - Carrie Moore
  • I have bought and sold residential properties using Brenda English @ Wilkins & Co. She represents Wilkins & Co. very well. She goes above and beyond for both the buyer and seller. It's honestly impressive; to the extent that I decided to write a review so that others know who they should choose, whether they are buying or selling residential or commercial property. Wilkins & Co. definitely demonstrates professionalism and expertise in the real estate market in my experience with them and Brenda English.
    - J. Alderson
  • Hampton Wilkins and his team are doing a fantastic job representing my home. They are caring, highly professional, and have offered excellent advise in selling my home. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to purchase a home, or are looking to sell one.
