About Emilie

After twenty years Emilie has amassed a wealth of knowledge in the real estate business, and continues to learn as the markets evolve. Helping her clients meet their short and long term real estate strategies and financial goals is what sets Emilie apart from her peers. Her in-depth understanding and knowledge of real estate serves both first-time buyers as well as experienced sellers when determining real estate worth, thus keeping her clients satisfied before, during and after each transaction. Professionalism, integrity and experience gives her clients the opportunity that one needs to and close transactions more effectively - driven by the belief that superior customer service is the key to success in each and every transaction!

During her many years in hi-tech, she held a real estate license in the mid-'70s, selling part-time; she earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business in 1984; attended classes from the American Management Association and designed a sales training program for new employees, which was later adopted by her last employer.

Emilie is a current member in the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, Women's Council of Realtors, and is very active in her community. A native of San Jose for more than 55 years, Emilie and her husband, Bill, live in Willow Glen. Emilie is part of the Willow Glen Infrastructure Committee and serves on the Board for the Willow Glen Business & Professional Association. She takes great pride in, and is very involved in the continued beautification of Willow Glen's "Avenue".

Additionally, for over 15 years, she supported a non-profit, Career Closet of Santa Clara County, having served as past president. Her latest endeavor is supporting the Morgan Autism Center which recently moved into their new Willow Glen 'home'. Emilie and husband Bill, are active in the Loma Prieta Porsche Club where Emilie assume the role of Hospitality and Charity Chair (shared with 2 other members). They have raised monies for the Jacob's Heart, Sacred Heart and Morgan Autism Center, as well as special needs programs for several local elementary schools.

While her years of hi-tech are behind her, Emilie continues to attribute her success to professionalism, integrity and a direct & caring business style. "I believe that to be successful in real estate, it is essential to maintain the high standards I set for myself while in electronics and focus on building clients for life through continued hard work and dedication. "

Emilie looks forward to many more years of partnering with Compass and their group of distinguished real estate professionals who are all part of the most sophisticated and technologically advanced real estate marketing firm specializing in distinctive properties and estates.
