Judy Paulsen has been in and around the real estate industry for over 30 years. Her career began in her hometown of Longview, Washington in the escrow/title insurance industry, eventually taking her to the Portland area where she worked as a real estate agent for several years before returning to the escrow field. Judy married Ric Paulsen in 2001, an Astoria native, with deep roots in Clatsop County. Ric’s father, Richard Paulsen and his wife Myrtle, owned the landmark “Owl Drug Store” in downtown Astoria for many years. When they were given an opportunity several years ago to relocate to the coast it was a dream come true. Judy worked as an Escrow Officer for Ticor Title’s Astoria and Seaside branches. Early in 2016 Judy joined RE/MAX River & Sea’s Gearhart office. She has also obtained an accreditation in Home Staging as an added bonus. Judy has escrow & real estate experience, excellent communication skills, attention to detail, customer service skills, as well as a true passion for real estate. Judy enjoys spending time with her husband and exploring the beautiful Oregon Coast. She has two adult sons, a daughter-in-law and is a proud grandmother of two.
