"Working with Mary Emma was awesome. Her dedication to making our listing her top priority was obvious. Between her background as an attorney, eye for design, and her commitment to our goals, listing our home with her was clearly the best choice." - Kate & Lucas B.

"Thanks to Mary Emma, we finally found our forever home before it even hit the market. Without her, we definitely would have missed the opportunity to buy a true unicorn in Pemberton Heights - a traditional home on a cul-de-sac with a panoramic view of the downtown skyline! Mary Emma is hard-working, knowledgeable, connected and collaborative, all of which led to a smooth and swift transaction!!" - Michelle & Robert S.

"From the time of our first meeting until closing, Mary Emma handled the selling of our home with integrity and utmost professionalism. She is well-connected, attentive and courteous, and her sound advice made for a very smooth process. We were so proud to have Mary Emma represent us and highly recommend her to anyone considering a home sale or purchase!" - Ellie & Grant L.

"I’ve known Mary Emma since we were in law school. She’s intelligent, gracious, has a talent for design and consistently demonstrates real estate acumen. When it came time to hire a Realtor, she was an obvious choice. She priced it with precision and marketed it effectively. She communicated during every step of the sale and proactively tended to the details. Sure enough, my house sold pre-MLS in multiple offers and above asking price just as we had strategized." - Denise C.

"I’ve bought many houses, but my Austin search was conducted mostly from out of state. I’m so glad I had Mary Emma to help. She provided me with the listing information on the house I bought before it ever hit the market. She readily dropped everything and rushed to see it. With her advice, I won the house in multiple offers in a highly competitive market. Her willingness to go the extra mile and familiarity with the local process made the purchase possible and very easy." - Alex W.

"Coming from another state, Mary Emma was an invaluable part of our purchase. She educated us on the local market and practices, knowledgeably guided us through many properties’ features and faults, and her background as a lawyer helped make her uniquely informed about the purchase process. In the end, even in an incredibly tight market, we bought the house of our dreams." - Caroline & Tim T.

About Mary Emma
Having grown up in San Antonio, Mary Emma returned to Texas in 2000 to attend law school at The University of Texas. For the next ten years following graduation, she practiced law and developed her career in the legal world. During this time, she became deeply acquainted with many Austin neighborhoods by living in Pemberton Heights, Bryker Woods, Hyde Park, Travis Country, and Westlake Hills.

Mary Emma prides herself on her expertise in identifying a home’s strengths. She can envision a property’s potential and knows first-hand how to make it come to life. She has re-designed and remodeled six personal homes by relying on her own personal knowledge and sense of aesthetics (fueled by well over twenty years as an enthusiastic interior design junkie). The last sale of her historically designated, Colonial Revival home in Pemberton Heights garnered record-breaking pricing statistics for the neighborhood. Currently she leads the design charge on an investment project to remodel a 1935 home in the historic district of Hyde Park. She also frequently serves as a consultant for clients’ own home renovations as well as staging properties for resale.

With a background as both an attorney and designer, and a passion for homes, Mary Emma is a uniquely qualified Realtor. These skillsets and have lead to her direct involvement in working on dozens of home transactions from inception to the closing table. She earns praise from her clients for her professionalism, real estate acumen, and a “knack for being one step ahead” in the process.

Mary Emma currently resides near Mount Bonnell with her three boys. When she’s not focusing on homes, you can find her shuttling her children, walking their dog, and taking advantage of Austin’s live music and restaurant scene. She also actively serves her children’s schools: St. Stephen’s Episcopal School and Casis Elementary, as well as serving on the Community Champions Board for Friends of the Children. She also gives continual support to The Church of the Good Shepherd, the Elizabeth Ann Seton Board, and Dell Children’s Council.
