Clients are saying:
"There is only one realtor for me. Even though it was a decade ago, I will never forget how much dignity and patience you showed me. Thanks for your help."
"Emily is first rate. Yes, she is knowledgable of the market and incredibly responsive and hard-working. She jumps on calls or offers in minutes. She brought contracts to our house at 10pm. She is a doer. But besides all that, she has two other intangible qualities: she has oodles of common sense and she is nice. Finally, she is truly your advocate. All said, I would -- and have -- used her on all sides of a deal."
"After working with Emily, all other brokers pale in comparison! We initially contacted Emily to help us find a home and we chose her because of her extensive experience. Suffice to say, it was one of the best decisions we've ever made! Emily is an expert on Lincoln Park, she knows the inventory inside and out, how to spot a property that was fairly priced or priced below market, what deals were worth fighting for and how to deliver what we wanted...even if we couldn't really articulate it at the time. Emily gave us high value insights into the overall market and its niches. We appreciated her grasp of attributes about every home (both positives and drawbacks) and, often she brought things to our attention that never would have occurred to us. Emily provided an excellent perspective on each element of our decisions; like the trade-off between more square footage or a better location and how those would impact our lives there...and our resale value. Also, because of her large network, Emily often learns about properties just before they hit the market, giving her clients a distinct advantage. We first saw our home in a preview, just days before it was listed on the MLS. Given the lack of current inventory, we were able to pounce before the competition.
Emily is a joy to work with; she has a friendly, easy going style that is backed up with a keen understanding of how to get the deal done. It's this warmth and professionalism that makes people want to work with her, including other brokers. Emily was tireless in her support and prompt to reply to all our phone calls and emails. Additionally, she worked countless weekends, late nights, and holidays and, on the one occasion that she wasn't available when we wanted to see a house, she had someone on her team there. Trust me, we weren't one of her bigger clients but Emily always treated us like we were her top priority.
Emily was also an extremely skilled negotiator and we relied on her advice to guide us through offers and counter-offers. We felt confident that she only had our best interests at heart and she made us totally comfortable every step of the way. And that's probably the biggest thing that separates Emily from other realtors, we felt like she became a friend. I truly believe that she just wanted to see us happy in our home. We could not have received a higher level of service or wiser counsel in our purchase!"
"Emily is extremely caring and very good at making the process of buying or selling your home go smoothly. She is detailed oriented and really listens to her client's needs. I found working with her an enjoyable experience and would highly recommend her to anyone."
"Emily was extremely attentive throughout both the buying and selling processes. On the sales side, she provided valuable insight into preparing our unit for market and then and set realistic market and price expectations. Emily ensures that your property is presented in its best light--whether through professional photography, websites or a variety of print marketing materials, everything is covered.
Once we were under contract, Emily helped narrow neighborhood selections for our purchase by listening to our current and future needs and wants and matching them with the neighborhood dynamic (and what we thought was our ideal area was the exact opposite; sometimes you need the extra set of eyes). Emily then focused the purchase by guiding us to the areas that she felt had the potential to hold or increase their value the best in the current real estate market. She helped us select the best home based on our feedback of each property and her prior understanding of our requirements.
When it came time for the closings, Emily handled all last minute negotiations with extreme tact and skillful negotiations; ensuring that we were adequately compensated for any discrepancies. When you're represented by Emily, you learn very quickly that you are in VERY capable hands, so when she tells you that she has it 'taken care of' you know that it's true."
