Meet Emily

Founder | Principal Broker

Emily, a dedicated real estate professional, entered the industry driven by her desire to make a difference in people's lives. She possesses a deep craving for human connection and wears her heart on her sleeve, pouring her entire being into everything she does. Emily firmly believes that conducting business the right way fosters long-term success, an approach that has earned her a remarkable 99% referral clientele.

With seven years of experience under her belt, Emily's ascent in the real estate industry has been nothing short of extraordinary. In 2022, she rose to the top 0.15% among nearly 14,000 agents in the competitive Portland metro area, securing the impressive rank of #33. However, what truly sets Emily apart is her ability to build meaningful and lasting relationships with her clients along the way.

Born and raised in the Bay Area, Emily spent a significant part of her childhood in Santa Cruz, California. Observing her grandfather and father successfully manage a sporting goods chain, she quickly learned that boldness is rewarded in the world of entrepreneurship. These early experiences taught her the importance of perseverance and the need to earn one's place when running a business. At the age of 13, Emily's family moved to Lake Oswego, Oregon, seeking a change of pace and scenery. She completed her high school education at Riverdale High School in 2003, proudly representing the Mavericks.

Emily's journey in sales commenced when she secured her first commission-based job at Nordstrom, where she sold women's shoes. It was within the bustling walls of the store that she received an intensive crash course in sales techniques and gained a graduate-level education in exceptional customer service. Unsurprisingly, Emily's hard work and dedication led her to rank within the top 10% of salespeople at Nordstrom, a testament to her natural abilities and unwavering commitment.

In September 2022, Emily took a significant leap in her career by launching her own brokerage, Hustle & Heart Homes. As her mother fondly remarks, she now gets to use her powers for good. Combining personal compassion with unrelenting determination, Emily goes above and beyond for her clients, leading her team with genuine care, and finding immense satisfaction in mentoring other agents. Her belief in the importance of authenticity resonates throughout her business and is a driving force behind her success.

When Emily isn't busy assisting her clients or leading her team, she cherishes her spare time with her husband Christian and their two sons, Ben (13) and Ethan (10). Together, they embark on both local and international travels, creating cherished memories along the way. Emily also takes great joy in entertaining family and friends at their tranquil lake house in Sherwood, where the wine fridge is as well-stocked as the gratitude she feels for the life she leads.

Emily's journey is a testament to her unwavering work ethic, genuine care for her clients, and commitment to authenticity. She continues to make a difference in the lives of those she serves, leaving an indelible impact in the real estate industry and beyond.
