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.

Emily was referred to me by Cara Shields, a personal friend. I could not have asked for a better broker. Emily maneuvered the difficult task of selling my property while I live in the western United States. She went above and beyond in organizing, staging and preparing the property and communicating with me. Emily's attention to detail and the speed with which she got... Read More

‐ 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.

‐ Lorraine, Charlotte

I cannot begin to say enough positive information about Emily. She made it clear that she was working with our best interests in mind. After our first meeting with Emily, before we began looking at houses, my husband and I were impressed with how she got to know us as a family, and use that information and knowledge to help us find the perfect house. We were making a... Read More

‐ Molly, Charlotte, NC

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.

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.
