Emily came to be our realtor by happenstance and we feel like we hit the jackpot of realtors! Her knowledge of the areas we were looking for a home was spot on. We found Emily to be professional, trustworthy and extremely thorough. Now that she found the perfect home for us, I am going to list my current home with her, knowing that she will work very hard to sell it for me. Over and above all of Emily's skills, she has a wonderful and fun personality. We LOVE Emily and highly recommend her !!

Thanks, Jill for trusting me to help you sell your home, too. We're almost at escrow on that - and ahead of schedule!

It was a pleasure working with Emily. She is very professional and personable, and able to get the job done. When we found the house for us, Emily worked diligently to assure that our offer was accepted. If we had a question, she would get right back to us with an answer - no waiting hours or days for a response. Emily's experience instills confidence in her clients, and her ability to negotiate both the major and minor issues is exemplary. If you are searching for a realtor who will be there when you need it and go the extra mile for you, Emily is the one.

Emily is an amazing real-estate agent. She is very professional and knowledgable and never tried to push us into a house like a few other previous a gens. She seems to know everyone and their reputation and will be quick to tell if they are less than professional. I hate to sound so cliche, but she really did get us our dream home.

I'm a very picky client and Emily was extremely helpful. What I appreciated most about her is how well she adapted to the style of home shopping I needed, I knew that our working styles were different and was impressed at how well she met my needs. I wanted to be very hands on, but had a hectic schedule and limited time. Emily was great at weeding through the homes I chose to view (through the website) and removing those that didnt fit my need. She kept me in mind while she viewed homes and ultimately the home I chose was one she found. Emily has a great network, and was able to easily get contractors, roofers, electricians at the homes to assess issues and give estimates.

Nothing ever happens by chance, I had been looking for house for almost a decade. We were destined to meet as I don't believe that anyone could have pulled off what she did. She helped me purchased a home I can place next to my dream one. She walked to walked and talked to talked. She made my first home buying experience a breeze!!!!

I used Emily to buy my first home. She made the process very easy. She was looking out for my interested through the entire ordeal. In the end, I got what I wanted, at a competitive price, in a great area. She pulled strings, did research, set everything up, made everything work so that I could stay focused. I totally recommend her.

Emily went over and beyond everything we were hoping for in a real estate agent. I have bought and sold many houses over the past 40 years, and Emily was the best I ever worked with. She was especially helpful with negotiating the required repairs with the seller's agent before closing. We were completely pleased with the final results of our house purchase.

Except where I thought we had lost her, ( she was sick ), Emily performed above and beyond, even for what I assume to be a low return for her on our HUD home. She was tireless in her efforts, she kept me informed on everything, answered every question I had, and believe me, I can question :) I am happy that our family had her help. And were not talking about just the house stuff. She supplied me names and numbers for help in finding lenders and for people to do any work needed. I am a highly critical person, and rarely praise people, but I honestly cant praise her enough for thoroughness, attention to details, and just making the process so understandable. And with it being a HUD home, the other 1000 steps you have to do to get that deal done. I told Emily from the get go, lets shoot this straight, no bull, no hidden stuff, and that's what she did. Thank you Emily. Keith and Keri

With the wonderful help of Emily, our short sale purchase went very smoothly. Emily is personable and had our best interest at heart. She kept in constant communication with us either by e-mail or telephone. Her knowledge of the real estate profession was evident throughout this ordeal. We will recommend Emily to our family and friends !!

Emily was fantastic! We just purchased our first home and we are thrilled! My husband and I both had our own dream/wish lists of what we wanted in a house. (We had been looking for a home for 4 months.) Emily skillfully and expertly blended our 2 dream/wish lists together and found us the perfect home! We were impressed with her ability to drill-down into what we really wanted in a home and she was able to meet our expectations 100%! Going through the process of a home loan can be very taxing but Emily has a ability to explain each financial step clearly and calmly. Bottom Line: She walks through the process of finding out your likes and dislikes, tours you through homes, dots the "i's" and crosses the "t's" when she makes the offer, is in constant communication with you during the loan process and happily hands you the keys when the process is complete! She is amazing and our home buying experience was excellent because of Emily! We highly recommend her! The Happy Johnson Family!

Emily (fondly known as Em): Ethical, Honest, and Caring. She has the knowledge to confidently negotiate on behalf of her clients and is right on the money! Emily always remains poised in times of volitility and always stays optimistic. She is by far the best agent that I have ever worked with and I have worked with hundreds in my career. Pick her!! She will fight for you and help your dream of homeownership come true!

Thanks, Traci...coming from you, that means a lot! I remember first working with you, years ago, on that "ugly" sale, both of us frankly a bit skeptical of each other...but by the end of that sale, we grew to mutually respect each other, 100%! The rest, as they say, "is history." I look forward to working with you for a very, very long time.

Emily worked extremely hard for us. She was very knowledgeable and paid great attention to detail. We were originally working with another realty company who paid absolutely no attention to what we wanted. My wife found Emily and now we own the most incredible house of our lives. I was on two international assignments during the purchase of the house and without her we would still be homeless! Em, thank you we owe you big time!!!

Emily went way beyond the call of duty to make this sale happen. She was involved in every part of this transaction. I would not recommend a short sale to anyone after my experiance but I would highly recommend Emily. I would have lost my mind without her working with me and the sellers agent. I can not give enough praise to Emily. I am glad she was on my team!

I couldn't have gotten this house if I hadn't had Emily as my agent. If you want an agent who would be completely on your side, come to Emily! I wanted to buy an inexpensive house and incurred many really difficult things on the way to buy it, but thanks to Emily and her husband, I got it, with a surprisingly cheap price! Can't imagine that obstacles still came up in the last minute but Emily was really awesome, she finally hand me the key before Christmas! I can say that Emily works with all her heart, and together with her experiences, she's the best!

Kiet and Mai, you know I LOVE helping people to find and purchase their first home...and you two will always hold a special place in my heart. Sorry I haven't been by to see the new, remodeled home (I'll bet it's beautiful). My family and I talk about seeing you, often...we will MAKE time soon!

As a first time homebuyer having Emily was a blessing. She is understanding, patient, and put your best interest first. Emily works hard on your behalf and based on what she has been able to accomplish for us shows that she is very respected and well versed in the industry. Emily guided us through the process and was present during our inspection. She kept in touch with the seller's agent to make sure that the work needed was completed. She even kept our broker up to date on things. It was refreshing working with someone that is in the profession not for the money but honestly is passionate about helping you attain your dream of being a homeowner. Emily was even able to get our down payment funds released. If you are looking for a good experience in the buying or selling process please get Emily on your team. Thank you Emily for being the person you are and know that the impression you have left on us will never be forgotten. Thanks and May God Bless You and Your Family Always.

Emily was the first person that asked me what I wanted. She found it right away. I am out of town and she worked around my schedule. I kept telling her being with her is like Wal-Mart, a one stop shop. Emily took care of eveything for me. I HIGHLY recommend her to everyone. She stayed up on top of everything, never let anything slip.

Emily went above and beyond to help us find the PERFECT home for our family. We were moving from out of state and had a pretty large want list for our family of 6. She willingly took me all over the Seattle area to look at 44 houses in 4 days! Her energy, knowledge and professionalism is to be applauded! It was a very positive experience.

Hi Sarah, Jack & Jack-Jack...I read the article about you as 1st-time homebuyers in the Seattle Times - how exciting (and great pictures, too). Even though I already knew your "story," I learned a lot! Great job conveying your dreams of owning a home and making it come true. I was and am proud to be a part of that.
