Print Agent Bio

It isn’t just her fierce nature and adaptability that makes Emma an ideal fit for the role of Real Estate rising star; her career was born of a passion for helping others through one of life’s biggest decisions.

 

Achieving a psychology degree from Vassar College while competing as a collegiate athlete set the standard for her commitment to excellence. An avid traveler and cook, she spent over a decade honing her professional skills in high-end restaurants and catering around the world before getting into Real Estate. A caretaker at heart, her extensive experience in hospitality is the lens though which she guides her clients through their home-buying endeavors with efficiency and grit.

 

Outside of Real Estate, Emma spends most of her time chasing after her rambunctious toddler Zevi and her hound mix Pickle. In the summer, it’s a safe bet she’ll either be gardening in the backyard, or enjoying food and drinks on a patio in the sunshine somewhere around the city.


Emma believes that a relationship built on trust should form the basis for any transaction. She enjoys the challenge of navigating the nuances, and continues to push the boundaries of what it means to go above and beyond for her clients. She cares deeply for her community in Portland, and is excited to bring her clients home to the magic this city has to offer.

"Emma made finding us a house in this busy market a breeze. She walked us through the steps thoughtfully and professionally and didn't let our emotions of buying our first house take over (by gentle nudges and reminders when we needed them). Her confidence and skill in negotiations got us in our dream house without getting in over our head financially. She was also good about inquiring with her senior colleagues if she wasn't 100% sure about something or needed extra advice. I would recommend Emma to anyone looking for an agent to navigate through the process of buying their new home."

"Emma helped us find the perfect home to purchase with our son -- it was his first home purchase and Emma took the time to work with him to really understand what he was looking for, and then once we found it she made the escrow process smooth, painless and fast! She arranged the inspections, communicated effectively with the sellers' agent, answered all of our questions, and was an effective advocate every step of the way. We closed in 30 days on the perfect condo in the perfect location and were able to celebrate with her on closing day, which was an added bonus! We wholeheartedly recommend Emma to anyone looking to make a purchase in the Portland area, she is the best!"

"Emma was absolutely amazing. Working with her was such a blessing. She truly was the perfect professional for the job. Emma was on it! From responses to our millions of questions, to going above and beyond for us time and time again, I would work with her a million more times! I can not recommend trusting Emma to help find or sell your home more. This is what quality real estate should look like. Thank you again for helping to make our dreams come true with the purchase of our home, we truly could not have done it without you!"
