All You Need Is Emily
A Chicago native, Emily Santos has been representing buyers, sellers and developers in Chicago for over 15 years. Throughout her career, she has marketed and sold numerous multi-million dollar developments as well as many re-sales of townhouses, condominiums, lofts, single-family homes and multi-units in neighborhoods throughout the city. To date, Emily has had over $200 million in career sales, a testament to her shrewd negotiating and tireless work ethic.
In order to exceed the expectations of Chicago buyers and sellers, Emily first meets with prospective clients to discuss their lifestyle needs. Catering to the needs of family, community, pets, nightlife, schools and ease of transportation, she understands that to be successful in real estate means much more than simply finding a "home" for a client. From her experience, clients want one or a series of these lifestyle choices to work in concert with each other—and Emily delivers for buyers and sellers alike.
Enthusiasm, hard work, and personal attention to detail are key components that make up the full-service offering that Emily provides. Every client receives her genuine care and thoughtful opinion, and long after a deal is closed, she takes great strides to help new homeowners settle in, always remaining available to assist with questions or referrals.
Emily holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from DePaul University, and, true to her Chicago roots, enjoys a wide range of weekend pursuits, including the arts, sports, culture, dining, nightlife—not to mention the unsurpassed beauty of the city's lakefront and historic architecture. Emily is a resident of the River North neighborhood.
Clients are saying:
"Emily is awesome, she helped me sell my old place and buy my new loft of my DREAMS. She advised me on everything from neighborhood to property value, and things to look out for in purchasing a loft. It took me a while and we looked at a ton of places before I finally found one I love. She was patient and always available to help me with my search. I can't recommend her or thank her enough!"
"Emily's is an expert in residential real estate. Her knowledge of the market and negotiation skills are nonpareil. I have completed multiple transactions with Emily over the years and continue to recommend her to all who are in need of an excellent real estate agent."
"I have used Emily to buy 4 properties now and she has gone above and beyond on each of the transactions. She has looked at countless properties for me and has never pushed a unit that has not been exactly right for my investment strategy. She is truly an expert in the Chicago market and has a great network of lenders and lawyers to assist in finalizing the deal. If you are looking for someone to take away 90% of the stress in buying a property then Emily is the right agent for you."
"My Husband and I met Emily Santos in the summer of 2010. We were looking for a single-family home in Chicago and after trying to work with a few other agents, we found Emily and felt we were getting sincere and honest advice. We were never pressured to settle on a deal throughout a period of 12 months until we finally found the right place. She was patient, professional, neutral.
Since then we have only worked exclusively with her, rented our condo multiple times and recently sold it for a good price in a short time period. Over the years our relationship has developed, we fully trust Emily and would continue to work exclusively with her. I have recommended her to friends and they have been thankful for the recommendation, they seem to have had the same excellent experience with Emily."
"The time came to sell my condo. I honestly didn't know where to begin and I was a nervous wreck. Emily returned my call immediately and helped to explain things and calm my fears. She has great knowledge of the market and knew exactly the right price to list at. She arranged for a professional photographer to come out to take pictures for the listing and it went live right away. She communicated with me every step of the way, from my questions to giving me ample notice of showings etc. An offer came in quickly and I had no clue what to counter with, but Emily did and thanks to her I got just shy of my asking price which made me very happy and it sold in about five days! Emily is down to earth, approachable and knowledgeable. I would gladly recommend her to family and friends and to anybody reading this."
