Emma Morris did a terrific job for us. She kept us informed every step of the way. She assuaged our fears when they arose. She got us more money than we anticipated. Her selection of stager, repair people, etc., was excellent. She walked us through the maze of reports and made us understand what was required by law and fair dealing. For the first time I appreciated why real estate people deserve the fees they get, we could never have done this on our own.
Emma is a second-generation Berkeley native realtor, and this makes a huge difference when it comes to the whirlwind East Bay housing market. Her connections and her micro-knowledge of the neighborhood and perks meant that when our plane landed and we finally arrived, we hit the ground running.
We moved from overseas with only a temporary housing arrangement, so timing was extra important for us--we need a place fast. We were looking in Albany, an extremely tiny and competitive market, and she managed to navigate us through the process, finding possibilities we didn't know existed. And guess what? We found the house of our dreams, and it was ours within a month.
I still can't believe how lucky we were... and still are. But it took a lot more than luck to get us into this great house. And we have Emma to thank for that.
Emma was a joy to work with. I was a little surprised at what she wanted me to do to the house before putting it on the market but I followed her advice and it paid off big time. She also advised me on the sale price to attract the highest number of buyers. This made me nervous but my house was on the market for 13 days and I received 9 offers. I asked Emma to counter the strongest offer to match the highest offer which was accepted immediately. The escrow closed on time and without incident. The house sold for 20% over asking! I would recommend Emma without hesitation.
Emma was very patient and gave us lots of room to make our decisions. She offered sound advice and never pushed us to make decisions we weren't comfortable with. After 2 years of looking and putting in multiple offers, we are in a home that we are totally thrilled about. We really appreciated her guidance.
We were really, really happy with Emma. We purchased a house that was not listed on MLS, and many aspects of the sale were unusual. She was very helpful, resourceful, creative, and most of all, patient, with the process and helping us through it. We were very glad to have been referred to her.
Emma was extremely helpful and resourceful throughout the entire process. She was quick to respond to all of our inquiries and always had provided insightful information. We wanted to move fast in our home search and couldn't have asked for a better agent who delivered.
Emma is amazing! She is professional, knowledgeable, and strategic. She guided us through every step, reducing complexity and streamlining the process. We would not have gotten this house without Emma.
