"Emilia Arau is the best real estate agent I have come across. My condo was sold in 6 days, above asking price! Emilia is dynamic, knowledgeable, efficient, able to manage property repairs and staging before listing (has a great team behind her for this), is an excellent communicator, good advisor, she basically calmly but efficiently walks you through the process, wastes no time, is totally present and pleasant and is always available. I would not have done this sale any other way. And the amazing part is, i never met Emilia in person and was 6000 miles away during the entire prep and escrow! It was yet all very smooth and punctuated by lots of little update and WhatsApp chats. She made it work for my far away situation. I am very thankful." - Kathleen L

She guided us expertly, was always positive, friendly, caring and upbeat, promptly answered any questions we had (and we had a lot), cleared up our doubts, helped calm our uncertainties and basically held our hand throughout the whole process. Her step by step guidance was just what we needed and, in great part thanks to Emilia and her team, everything went very smoothly.

"I met Emilia through a family friend about 2 years ago when I was first looking to rent an apartment. Since the very first time that we met, she automatically captured exactly what I was looking for. She really listens to what it is that you like, dislike, preferences, budget, etc. She is great at getting back to you promptly, which is so important in these cases as properties get taken so quickly. Emilia also helped get into my first property as a home owner! This was a very exciting, yet, intimidating process as I had absolutely no experience in this, but Emilia guided me through every step of the way, and helped me get into a beautiful home at an amazing price, which she helped negotiate. Not only does she work closely with you, but she also works very hard behind the scene to get all paperwork, legal documents, etc. in perfect order for it to be a smooth process for her clients. She is an expert in her profession and I highly recommend her to anyone (renting, first-home owners, high-end clients, etc.) she is very experienced on all levels, and is more than willing to work with anyone. Thank you, Emilia for all of your help and amazing work!" - Manuela E.

"Emilia shared with me her extensive knowledge of the real estate market in my area and was professional, warm, and friendly throughout the entire process of the sale of my condo. Her detailed action plan resulted in excellent communication, and she stayed on track without being pushy. Emilia rolled up her sleeves and got involved with every aspect of preparing my unit to sell for top dollar which she ultimately did. Before the first , I had one offer above asking and shortly afterwards two more offers as back up. I was especially impressed with and grateful for Emilia's real estate expertise and attention to details. Emilia continuously provided step-by-step over site of all the players involved in the sale of my condo and the entire real estate process. This was significant and very important to me, as real estate deals and moves rank very high on the stress chart. Emilia's real estate experience, work processes and work ethics gave me peace of mind and assurance every step of the journey.

Not only did she found the best listings matching my picky attitude, she also became like a therapist or mother, listening to me whine and complain, advising me on the right fit for my current situation and speak high of me to landlords who without her would probably not have listened to me and only care about the facts.
