Over the past 20 years, Emily has enthusiastically helped hundreds of people in the Greater Rochester area successfully buy and sell their homes.
She belongs to RE/MAX Realty Group, which is the most prestigious, highest-producing office in the state, having in place the most innovative marketing tools and technology available today.
Her high level of devoted service wins recognition awards every single year, as well as constant referrals from happy clients.
A relentless troubleshooter, expert negotiator and tireless advocate, Emily provides a pleasant experience at a stressful time in her clients' lives.
"My mission is to educate each client thoroughly about the buying or selling process. This removes any fear and uncertainty. It also allows us to have lots of fun along the way!"
Emily's clients know her to be professional, smart, and business-like but also full of laughs. She believes in personal, one-on-one service, as opposed to the "team" method, where you are handed off to a staff member, usually an inexperienced one.
For buyers, Emily schedules a preliminary meeting to sit down and chat at her office for a good hour or so before ever making an appointment to see a house. For sellers, after viewing their home, she presents an expertly-prepared Market Analysis. Each client learns about the tools and technology behind the scenes, and goes away knowing exactly what to expect.
Emily loves the Rochester area, having relocated here from the New York City area as a newlywed 35 years ago. She shows newcomers where to shop, dine, work out, hike, boat, swim, learn, worship, take part in sports (golf, equestrian, soccer, baseball), and enjoy the arts (theatre, philharmonic, museums, galleries).
Emily and her husband Chris have a daughter, Andrea, 27, and a son, Christopher, 30. Andrea is a mechanical engineer (Duke '04), lives in New Orleans, and just became an Ironman! Christopher is an investment banker (Penn/Wharton '00, MIT '06), lives in Hong Kong, and is planning his upcoming wedding to fiancée Nishi.
Favorite pastimes for Emily (other than visiting her far-flung children!) are baking (especially her famous Italian cookies), cooking (she loves spontaneous guests), gardening (including a koi pond), singing in St. Joseph's Church Family and Friends Choir, playing in St. Joe's Handbell Choir, attending meetings at the Penfield Gardeners Club, reading novels and self-help books, shopping (for anything!), decorating, and, most recently, finally trying her hand at golf (at the urging of the Ladies' 9-Hole league) at Penfield Country Club, where her husband holds a champion title!
Emily believes strongly in contributing to the community in which she lives and works. Every Friday night you'll find her working at Shepherd Home in Penfield, a comfort-care residence for the terminally ill. She is one of 50 volunteers there who have been trained to make one's final weeks pain-free and peaceful, as well as to lend support to grieving family members.
A percentage of every commission earned is donated to the Children's Miracle Network, 100% of which is directed to the Golisano Strong Children's Hospital here in Rochester.
Call Emily to help you accomplish your relocation goals. She'd love to become your trusted real estate advisor!
