Great for first time buyers & sellers
We have worked with Emily both as first time buyers and first time sellers, and she has been all around awesome to work with! She was so patient with us as first time buyers/sellers, really taking the time to explain the process in terms that we would understand and to answer our (many, many) questions. She was extremely responsive via email, phone, and text, and helped us be as organized as possible and on top of all of the different items involved with the buying and selling process. She worked seamlessly with our agent and the rest of our team, helping shepherd the process from offer to closing. Thankfully we didn't hit too many road bumps but when issues did come up, she was able to give great advice and formulate effective responses. Emily and her team were a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell!

Skip the rest and start with the BEST!
After going under contract for the sale of my condo, my realtor introduced me to Emily for representation. Working through some tricky obstacles in that sale, Emily was there step by step to answer questions and explain processes to me! After the sale, it was a no brainer to have Emily be my attorney for the purchase of my single family home. Emily again showed great care for my journey and could not have made things easier. Emily was available when I needed advice, tough when I needed her to be during all reviews and negotiations, and left me with zero questions around process or what was next. A good attorney may get you to the finish line, but a great attorney will be so thorough even after the final document is signed, that she may save you cash for some really nice dinners to treat yourself. No detail was left uncovered, and I cannot say enough great things about Emily and her team! I would 100% recommend Emily for my friends and family and she will be my first contact in the future for any needs.

Working with Emily was wonderful!
Emily came highly recommended to us by our realtor, and we are so glad that she did! As first-time home buyers, my fiancé and I had many questions, and Emily always made sure to answer and explain each and every one. She was extremely communicative and was in constant contact with our realtor, lender, and the seller's attorney to ensure a smooth process. From our accepted offer to closing, it was a pleasure to partner with Emily. We always felt assured that we were in excellent hands, and we look forward to working with her in the future.

Highly Recommend
Emily came well recommended and was great to work with. She addressed issues as they came up and worked seamlessly with our lender, realtor, and the sellers. Emily was patient and helpful through a period of negotiation and made the closing fast and smooth.

I have worked with Emily for the past 6 years now and recommend her to all my clients. Every transaction that I have done with her and her team has been a smooth one. She has great communication skills and we know what to expect at every milestone. I will keep referring everyone to Emily and her team.

Emily is a pro!
My home lender was very disorganized. Emily worked very hard on the deal and made sure we closed on time. She was amazing! This deal would not have happened without her.

100% positive experience
Working with Emily gave me a confidence and peace of mind that I haven't experienced in many transactions in life. With little knowledge of what real estate transactions entail, Emily thoughtfully explained all component parts of the home buying process and even filled in when my lender and real estate agent couldn't answer my questions. She went over my transaction with a fine tooth comb and left nothing untouched. To be quite honest, she is worth double what she charged me!
