About Me

As a transplant to the Queen City of Charlotte, I quickly learned that there is more to this city than initially meets the eye. Over the last few years I have enjoyed exploring and soaking in the city's unique culture. Before moving to North Carolina I had the opportunity to live on both coasts of the continental United States, in England, and most recently in the US Virgin Islands, becoming well versed in the art of relocation and the intricacies that come with making a new city your own.

My background is in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics from the University of Pennsylvania as well as History and Science from Harvard University. I consider myself a highly motivated individual who strives to take the knowledge gleaned from involvement in dynamic and challenging environments to build a successful home buying and selling experience.  

I take particular pleasure in the fact that my job affords me the opportunity to partner with people from all walks of life and become an advisor throughout their home buying and selling process; gathering information, putting together a personalized action plan and extracting solutions is a thoroughly enjoyable job!

When not working with clients or catching up on real estate trends, I enjoy spending time with my terminally active children and my saintly husband who keeps the herd in order!

‐ Christy Bateman, Gardnerville, NV

Emily was excellent! She was the best realtor I have dealt with in 30 years of purchasing or selling a home. She went above and beyond to help me with purchase of a home and reaching out to contractors. I am new to Charlotte with no local family and she just made this process much easier. Emily is the best, nothing more to say.

I cannot begin to say enough positive information about Emily. She made it clear that she was working with our best interests in mind.

We were making a... Read More

Emily was such a joy to work with. She was always available to answer my questions or address my concerns, and had so much patience with me. She's the best, and I will definitely recommend her to my friends going through the search in coming years.

Emily is a true professional and made my home purchasing experience very enjoyable. I told her what I wanted and she focused on meeting my needs. She always kept me informed and promptly responded to any questions that might have come up. Emily made an experience that can sometimes be a nightmare a true dream. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends.

Market Activity - July 2019
The Vitals
As with any real estate market, Charlotte's moves up and down seasonally and is influenced by the overall economic outlook. The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend. Your trusted real estate advisor can help you figure out how your home fits into the marketplace.
