Buying with EmilyEmily is passionate about helping buyers find the home that fits their needs. Whether you are finding a home for yourself, your family, or looking for an investment property Emily has the tools necessary to hone in on what you need and want. She customizes your search to fit your lifestyle. If you would like to view properties online and mark the ones you are interested in, or if your busy lifestyle means you have little time to look and would like Emily to do the leg work and simply tour you through the best of the best, any style you prefer she will adjust her method to meet your needs. You will also often find her out with one of her favorite tools, the ipad, which provides to her clients the up to date market information, local schools and amenities, and community maps all on the spot at the touch of a finger. If you are a first time buyer Emily will guide you through the process, be your advocate, and advise you thoughtfully so that you feel confident that you are making the right decisions. Emily owns property in Chicago herself, and she understands that what you are looking for is the safest possible investment, in the best location, and a home that you can't wait to get back to everyday. Her goal is to find you just such a property
Selling with EmilyEmily first and foremost believes in honest communication and straight forward advice on the sale of your home. She is not the Realtor who will promise she can sell your home at an inflated price and ten days later tell you it needs to be
dropped. From the beginning, she knows that knowledge is power. She gives you the information you need to be knowledgeable about the market and where your home needs to be positioned so that you are not chasing the market but the market is chasing you. Emily is also committed to marketing your home strategically and aggressively to draw in buyers and have them see the value in purchasing your unique home. Your home will be featured on every major home
search site including Zillow, Trulia, Realtor, Redfin, Yahoo, Chicagotribune.com, Coldwell Banker National and Local (the latter of which receives over triple the online views of any other brokerage), and over 60 more. She will also continue to keep you up to date on the feedback from showings, number of online virtual showings, and what is being done to sell your home. Once your buyer is hooked she will fiercely negotiate on your behalf to protect your most valuable investment and see you through a successful close.
