"Emily has been an amazing asset to us in both design and valuation consultations as we built and designed a number of homes. Her knowledge of the trades and insight on where/how to best source materials has been very helpful. She has been able to articulate a clear vision for the work needed and undoubtedly helped us maximize our investment"

"We greatly benefitted from and appreciated Emily's extensive personal knowledge of the Northfield community and all of its' wonderful advantages. She communicated these expertly to all those who were interested in the home."

"Emily knows and understands the 'Northfield' market which is different than the overall 'NorthShore' market. Emily went out of her way to assist us in every aspect from staging to fixing inspection items. She definitely cares a lot about her clients "


About Emily

Every home represents two different, but equally important investment decisions - financial and emotional. My goal is to work with each of my clients to ensure that both of these aspects are addressed and achieved. My experience in the marketing field has taught me to recognize that just as every home is different, so are the needs and priorities of each homeowner. I always work hard on my clients" behalf to capture and communicate these differences and use the highest attention to detail possible to ensure each transaction is successful.

My background includes marketing and branding as well as material selection and project management for interior architectural firms. I have worked in the residential market for much of my career - combining my knowledge of market analysis and communications with my passion for everything about homes. I am LEED, GA certified and have a strong understanding of a home's sustainability and a vision for design and finishes. My educational background includes a BS in Textile Marketing and Management from Cornell University and an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.

I have lived on the North Shore all my life. I currently reside in Northfield where we have raised our family since 1995. I have served actively on numerous school, church and community boards - giving me first-hand knowledge of the neighborhoods and community resources important to clients in their purchase and sale decisions.
