Business Philosophy:As a lifelong resident of Marblehead, I have a strong understanding of the town and its subtle neighborhood distinctions. I've personally bought, sold and built multiple houses here, and understand how stressful, yet rewarding these transactions can be. I strive to provide clear communication, quick response time, and skillful negotiation, all on a solid ethical foundation. My background as a commercial appraiser helps me understand what creates "value" and how to achieve it in selling your property. I also recognize when listings are effectively priced, thereby ensuring you get the maximum home for your dollar as a buyer. Ultimately, my goal is your satisfaction.
Certified Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES):As a Certified Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), I'm aware of the financial and emotional challenges seniors face when they sell a long-held family home. I also recognize that in many cases, it's a seniors' adult children who take the reigns. I understand the peaks and pitfalls of selling a family home, from both perspectives, and have written a guide to help seniors more fully understand the process. I also work closely with a team of local professionals to ensure my clients obtain reliable information about complicated issues related to taxes, estate planning, and Medicaid. My hands-on network also includes movers, contractors, cleaners and other service providers to soften the often difficult transition of moving a senior.

"Emily was there for us every step of the way. She answered every text, email and call and always listened to our concerns, understood our needs and the difficulties facing the decision to sell a family home. She could not have been more respectful or helpful. Emily understood what we considered the unique aspects of the property and worked hard to help us realize our sales goals. We are extremely satisfied. The transaction involved sale of a family home, and it could not have gone more smoothly." -Barbara W.
Hands down the agent who has worked the most on a transaction for our family. We have moved several times and no one will put in more effort and time than Emily to make sure every detail is correct. We had a wonderful experience!-Kelly P.
