Print Agent Bio

Some people are simply born to make sales.

It would be difficult to argue any other case for Emily. In her first two years as a real estate broker, she closed over $15,000,000 in sales. Needless to say, we think she’s found her calling.

Understanding the art of a sale, while certainly a natural talent for Emily, did not come without disciplined practice. Ever since her first job at Nordstrom’s, Emily has been refining her instincts with hard work and sacrifice. Her experience in creating radio marketing campaigns with 105.1 The Buzz and 99.5 The Wolf, along with her experience in the financial industry at Wells Fargo, have given Emily a well-rounded set of tools to work with in real estate.

Utilizing the skills she has cultivated in various industries, Emily has fostered an innate ability to create meaningful relationships and lasting impressions. She’s tough for her clients but easy to work with, and her early success is a testament to her ability to negotiate and close a deal.

An Oregonian since the age of 12, Emily has a valuable insider perspective that can come only from having lived in an area and from watching it develop over many years. She lives in Sherwood with her husband and two little boys, Benjamin and Ethan. When she isn’t working, she’s trying new restaurants and traveling with her family; all the while experiencing the world and always taking inspiration from what she finds in the pursuit of self-mastery.

Emily is an amazing agent! Recently I was considering listing my 1910 home in Newberg. Emily quickly pulled together comps and showed my family several houses. Emily was attentive, quick to return phone calls and emails, listened to what we had to say and I know she was truly trying to find the best fit for us. Ultimately we decided to stay in our home because we love our walkable location. I really enjoyed working with Emily and she would be my first call if I decided that it's time to move.

— Alison Murray, Owner of Murray Photography

Emily is such a great agent! She was such a great help selling our old home and purchasing a new one. She is very determined to find you exactly what you're looking for and will fight to get you an accepted offer. She is very knowledgeable and one of my favorite things is that she will always get back to you in a timely manner.

— Caitlin Reed

In today's competitive market having a professional like Emily on your side is CRUCIAL when buying or selling a home. Emily's ability to get the deal done combined with the top notch level of service she provides is second to none in an industry where many tend to do the bare minimum. I would recommend Emily to family and friends without hesitation and working with her is an absolute pleasure!

— Chris Blyth, Business Development Representative, First American Title Company

My husband and I just bought our first house with Emily, and we couldn't be happier. She was on the job 24/7, emailing, texting and meeting us for home tours so that we could get ahead of other buyers in the tight Portland market. She was a star during negotiations and knew when and how to push to get our offer accepted -- ahead of eight competing bids but well within our budget. Thank you!

— Allison Symonds, Writer - Brand Chameleon

Emily is a true professional and truly motivated to help. She is great at what she does and it isn't just about the transaction for her. She has compassion and emotional intelligence to go with her business savvy. She makes you feel like you're her only client and like you are her top priority, which is very comforting in the process of buying or selling the biggest investment of your life! I will use her again and again and I would gladly recommend her to anyone! Thank you, Emily!

— Dawn Bootz, Lead employee specialist at community vision

Emily never gave up on helping us sell our very unique home ... her determination to act (and to get me to act!) was exactly what we needed and it paid off! She worked on our behalf diligently for what was best for us during our transaction and made the process as quick and easy as possible for our family. Now she is working diligently, yet again, to help us find our next home. We're very grateful for her!

— Julia Olson

We loved working with Emily! She did a fantastic job of selling our home and finding us our forever home. She worked hard and got us everything we were asking for. The best part is that she made the whole process enjoyable. She is a true professional!

— Nicole Quesenberry, Human Resources Manager at Selectron Technologies, Inc

Emily's knack for recognizing the market, and strategic pricing is amazing. She guided us through all of the stressful pieces of the sale, and managed everything beyond our expectations. We are extremely satisfied with her efforts and the outcome of our sale ($20k over asking in four days), as well as our resulting purchase, and would highly recommend meeting with her - even if you’re not quite sure it's the right time. It worked out wonderfully for us, and she will make it her mission for you as well!

— Jacob Peetoom, Senior Research Manager at rsEdge, inc.

Emily made, what is normally a very stressful situation, into the easiest! Not only did she help us find the right home for our family, she handled hurdles that were out of anyone's control very professionally and thoroughly. Day or night, she worked hard and in the end was able to deliver more than we could have wanted!

— Courtney Peetoom, Project Manager with Perlow Construction

We had the best experience selling our 5 yr home that had turned into a 13 yr home. Emily was great at making us feel comfortable through the entire sell/buy process. She advocated for us, was honest, and realistic. She knew how to navigate through each transaction that led us to a winning outcome. We're coming up on our 1yr anniversary in our new home and we would have never gotten here without Emily. I highly and gladly recommend Emily to all my friends and family. Aime

— Aime Orozco, Director of Card Services at First Tech Federal Credit Union

After over five hours of looking for the right agent to help us find our first home I came across Emily's profile and knew she was the One. She took us on even though we were out of state and meeting her in person only solidified that we had chosen wisely. With a planned whirlwind weekend of 18+ scheduled homes to view Emily was prepped and ready & we hit the ground running. She never lost her pep or kindness and her extensive knowledge of the area really helped us along our path. Luckily, we fell in love with the last home schedule on the first day and spent the following day discussing and putting in an offer. We are thrilled and so thankful for the constant commitment and communication as we muddled through the escrow process. Emily worked hard for us & respected our thoughts, ideas & desires. We couldn't have asked for a better first home buying & relocation experience than what we've had with Emily.

— Stephanie Hooper, Production Manager to DarkMatterFX

Emily's description of hustle and heart could not be more accurate! I was impressed by her readiness to show homes and catch things quickly when they came up. She is truly on top of the market - and with this market you need that!

— Tera Henderson, Ford / Wyatt Apparel

We would not be in our new home without Emily. She went above and beyond finding the perfect house for us and knew just how to negotiate our offer. We are grateful for the time she took talking us through the process and helped us feel confident in our purchase. She is the best!

— Mary Weggeland, Sherwood Center of the arts

Emily Corning was the best decision we made when we started searching for our dream home. She put so much time and effort into helping us get our offer accepted and then list our home in a matter of days! Simply the best.

— Tim Burton

I do not have enough amazing things to say about Emily. My husband and I were wanting to sell our home and buy a new one, but were a little scared and had loads of questions. Emily was exactly what we needed! She encouraged us and answered all our questions, but never once pressured us to move forward. Once we met Emily, we knew we were ready and she was the realtor we wanted to go with. The sale of our home hit a few snags, but Emily was always on top of it. We were never left wondering what was going on or what our next step was. She was in communication with us 24/7 and was easing our concerns before we even expressed them to her! It was obvious that she’s not only experienced in sales that go smoothly, but has the knowledge and the drive to power through sales that can get a little rocky. Her demeanor throughout the entire process was so calm and put together. She knew she had it under control! She advocated for us and fought hard for us. I️ do not believe we would be in our current home, our dream home, without her. Buying a home can be stressful, but having her in our corner made the process so much easier. My husband and I knew we were in good hands and she wouldn’t let us down. She went above and beyond for us (as it seems like she does for all of her clients based on her reviews) and we will always be recommending her to our friends and family! You won’t regret choosing Emily for the sale/purchase of your home. She truly is the best!

— Jennifer Burton, Owner of Bens Heating and Air Conditioning

EMILY IS A FREAKIN BADASS ROCKSTAR!!! We feel so incredibly lucky to have gotten the chance to have her as our realtor! Not only does Emily put her heart and soul into her work, she doesn't do anything but work her ass off for you, during this process. Buying a home can be stressful and overwhelming and Emily will ALWAYS have your best interest at heart. Not once did we ever feel pressured and multiple times she assured us she could find us something better and she SO did!! She is someone that you know you can absolutely trust and that will battle for you no matter what! She also works with an amazing team of people who made our home buying process so easy and enjoyable! She is one of the most genuine and loving people I've ever met and you will absolutely be so happy and satisfied to get the chance to work with her! We are forever grateful for you Emily!!!

— Amanda Chaney, Sherwood Family Chiropractic

If you are in the market to buy or sell a home, you need Emily as your realtor. I’ll be honest, being a number oriented person and in the service industry myself, I am very conscious about cost and hold others to a high standard in terms of the service we expect. With that in mind, we almost ended up using another realtor that was advertising a lower cost. However, after meeting with Emily, we felt her passion and work ethic was on another level (she did not disappoint). It goes without saying, you get what you pay for. On top of that, Emily is an expert regarding the Sherwood market and knew exactly what to price our home at. Before we knew it, we had numerous offers and ended up selling our home for $30k over asking (almost 10% over the listed price!). From the acceptance of our offer to the close of our home, Emily truly shined during the negotiating process. Without getting into the details, she was able to guide us through some difficult decisions and ultimately reach the outcome we had all hoped for. Throughout this process Emily EARNED our trust and we can honestly say she always had our best interest in mind. Embarking on such an important life event, we could not have asked for anything more. We are happy to say we now have a realtor for life!

— Keoni Hudson - Rassmussen, Finicial Advisor at Kruse Woods Financial Partners

Without Emily’s knowledge, passion and persistence we would not be in our fabulous house and property today! She made it so easy and smooth to buy our new house and sell our old house. Emily definitely knows the Sherwood housing market. We put all our trust in her to put our house on the market at a certain price, hoping we would get over asking.....guess what..this girl rocked it and sold our house for over asking price!!! Emily is a realtor rockstar! She goes above and beyond for her clients, and is available anytime of the day to answer your questions and guide you through the process! Thank you Emily! You have a lifetime client!

— Haley Grimm, Owner of Grimm's Fuel

We just sold our house in Oregon to move down to Arizona. It was a stressful time because I had changed jobs and there was a lot riding on this sale going smoothly. Emily came in and told us exactly what we needed to do to get top dollar for our house. We followed her advice to the letter and it sold for nearly $30k over asking price. But most importantly, Emily was really good about getting out in front of us and fighting for us, as well as helping us get through whatever snags arose. Additionally, she was honest about what our expectations should be vs dumping money or time into something that probably wouldn't yield much of a return. She didn't just tell us what we wanted to hear to check off a box. She was, hands down, worth every penny she was paid, and if I ever find myself buying or selling up in Oregon in the future, she's the first agent I'm calling.

— Evan Sprague, Creative Asset Developer at Intel

Hustle & Heart. Period. Emily hustles night and day for you and pours her heart into finding the best fit for your family. She was our rock for the whole process of buying our home. As first time home buyers were borderline terrified of the whole process, and in a hot market like Portland we were like fish out of water until we met Emily. Countless times after tough conversations and sleepless nights we heard 'I got this!' from Emily and low and behold, she took care of everything, eased our concerns, and was the voice of reason for us all along the way. She's a pro and it shows. She saved us thousands of dollars by mitigating repairs before closing, getting us through a bidding war, and literally saving the whole deal for us on closing day. Without Emily we would not have the keys to our first home! We will shout our recommendations of Emily from the rooftops of Beaverton, and can't wait to work with her again in the future!

Emily is amazing! Simple as that! My husband and I had a long and tough start to our house buying journey, the Sherwood market is fast and competitive and we started looking in other cities that we truly didn’t want to call home. We’ve been in Sherwood for 9 years and it broke our hearts to think of leaving the town that we were already raising our kids in. Just as we were going to throw in the towel We ran across Emily’s Facebook page. I told my husband that “this is our realtor. If we want to stay in Sherwood than this is who we need to use.” Sure enough we were right and it was the best decision we made for our future and our family. As a mother and Sherwood resident herself Emily understood our struggle and the importance of staying in Sherwood. She also didn’t make us feel self conscious of our budget or the fact that my husband was wanting to use his VA home loan. Which was extremely important to him, and since her husband is a veteran as well she respected that expectation. She guided us in all the right directions and represented us to a T. She was willing to take us on and help us through the house buying process. I know we weren’t the easiest family to take on, and I am thankful for her willingness to represent us. She has a huge heart, a hard worker, takes pride in her job and reputation, loves her clients and creates a lasting relationship with them! I’m so thankful for her and will forever recommend her to anyone that is buying or selling a home. Thank you, Emily!! You are the best!

— Kelly Sanders, OHSU

As a local lender, having the opportunity to work with a real estate agent that is as passionate, organized, and committed as Emily is highly rewarding. Her style of communication is a breath of fresh air and she is always willing to go the extra mile for her clients. She believes in building a life-long relationship with her clients, they are not just "another transaction" to her. We LOVE working with Emily Corning and her team!

— Mikal Mele, Guild Morgage

Hustle and Heart is truly who Emily is and will always be! She has hustled from the first day I met her and pours her heart into every little detail! My husband and I contacted her to come look at our home to see if it was ready to sell. The minute she walked in our home, her face lit up and we knew she was the perfect one for us! She was thoroughly impressed with everything we had done to the house and made us feel extremely confident in the listing price. She was confident our house would sell in no time! And of course 4 days on the market we got a full price offer!! As everyone knows the process of selling and buying a home is quite stressful! The little things that completely stressed me out, she would always confidently say “I’ve got this!” She worked countless hours not only selling our home but helping us purchase a new home. I know we were not the easiest when it came to finding a new home. We were very particular with what we wanted and the location. We looked at many homes and fell in love with one that was more than we wanted to spend. Emily saw how much we loved this house and was able to work her magic and get us $19,000 below asking price! She 100% puts her clients first in everything she does! We could not have imagined this entire process without her! She is without a doubt the BEST and we absolutely recommend her to everyone! Thanks again for everything you have done for us Emily! We are forever grateful! Our realtor for life!

— Andrea Ellyes, Office Manager at Session Orthodonics

When my husband and I decided we wanted to sell our home and move closer to his work, Emily stepped right in and helped lead the way for us. She went above and beyond working to sell our home quickly and to help us find the right home to move to. She was very honest and didn't let us settle when times were tough. Buying and selling a home is probably one of the most stressful decisions anyone can make and she made the process go so smoothly. We highly recommend Emily to anyone! She is a rock star!

"Emily was the absolute best! As first-time home buyers, we were absolutely clueless about everything. She gave us a “road map” at our first visit about what to expect, and sat down with us to determine our needs. She was always just a text or call away, and was very responsive. We never felt like she was pushing a home, she even said “you know this sounds like this isn’t the home for you, we’ll find it!” Emily was able to submit a competitive offer, negotiate a roof repair, sewer repair AND buyers credit. Emily knew her local real estate market, and the home actually appraise over our offer value. I’ll miss her texts with available homes on the market, but we couldn’t be more thrilled with our new home. I would highly recommend Emily and her team for your real estate needs"

"Emily stepped up for us after our initial realtor did not communicate effectively. She came in and told us exactly what we needed to do to help the house sell, and gave us a realistic price point. Less than 2 weeks after re-listing the house, we went pending! Emily always let us know what was going on with updates on every showing we had. She also personally hosted our open house, which the other realtor didn't do. I can't express enough how amazing of a job she did for us, getting the best price and the best buyer! My only regret is that we didn't hire Emily first. I would highly recommend her to anyone trying to sell their home quickly and for the highest price, she was awesome!!"

"When we initially met with Emily it was more of informative meeting. She got all of our info, checked comps and said that it may be best to wait a few months to see how the market adjusts throughout 2016... which was fine with us because we were a little hesitant to jump in at that point anyway.

After a few months, Emily came to us with some news and a suggested selling price, confident that we could sell pretty quickly. She helped us get our house ready for showing, listed it at a price that we were very comfortable with, though my wife and I were not quite as confident in the price as Emily was. Boy were we wrong! After just 4 days on the market, we were able to accept an offer for $20k over asking price, which definitely benefited us for our next purchase!

Emily's knack for recognizing the market, and strategic pricing was amazing. She guided us through all of the stressful pieces of the sale, and managed everything beyond our expectations. We are extremely satisfied with her efforts and the outcome of our sale (and our resulting purchase), and would highly recommend meeting with her if you are considering selling, but not quite sure if it's the right time. It worked out wonderfully for us, and she will make it her mission for you as well."

I've dealt with other agents in the past where I sometimes wouldn't get a response for a day or two, so this is a major win.
