Buying or selling a house can be a convoluted and frustrating process-- but it doesn't have to be. A good real estate broker can make the process fun and informative. I believe that too much information is better than too little. I also think humor can make big decisions seem less scary. I will bring clarity and structure to the buying and selling process, guide you through each step by providing you the best information available, while keeping in mind the bigger picture and always putting things in perspective. My goal is to be your tireless advocate, to make sure you get the best deal possible and you end up in a home that you love.
I became a real estate broker after nearly ten years working as a communications and outreach consultant. I have extensive experience working with clients to understand their needs and constraints and helping them to reach and exceed their goals. I am a natural collaborator and a people-person-- I look forward to getting to know you, understanding your goals, and helping you realize your real estate dreams.
A little about me:
I grew up in Seattle in a little Craftsman house about a half a block from Green Lake. I have an intimate knowledge of north Seattle neighborhoods after living in the area for 30+ years. I received my B.A. degree from the University of Washington in urban and environmental planning, and spent a year after college building houses on Queen Anne where I learned basic construction principles and fell in love with old houses. I bring both a background in planning and construction knowledge to my role as a real estate broker to help clients make informed decisions about a property. I currently live in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood with my husband, daughter (born in 2015), and and our border collie named Margie.
"We just worked with Emily to purchase our first house and could not have asked for a better experience! Seattle is such a tough market. You need someone who is going to be there for you. Emily helped us find the perfect home at a fair price. She is a careful, patient listener and was continually responsive to our evolving preferences and needs. With Emily, we knew we would get honest, thoughtful advice to keep us on the right track and our offers competitive.” - David
“We highly recommend Emily. We very much enjoyed working with her to buy our first home. She was knowledgeable, accessible and friendly throughout the process. She listened to what we wanted and worked hard to help us find it.”
