What are clients saying about Emma?

I am delighted to recommend Emma and Michael Kerins without reservation, as the most outstanding real estate agents I have ever worked with. They are diligent, intelligent, good-humored, helpful and of high integrity. They went out of their way to help me organize my apartment so that it would show at its best, they went above and beyond the call of duty by assisting me in disposing of some of the contents of my apartment, and in short helped make the whole process, from listing to closing, pain-free and even pleasant. Oh yes: they got me my asking price. I would not think of using anyone else if I ever had occasion to need a real estate agent in New York. -Michael S.
What could have been a stressful and somewhat unpleasant process of finding a new apartment was, in fact, a real pleasure. Emma understood right away what we wanted almost better than we did. She was unfailingly available and helpful and creative. We couldn't be happier with our new place. Our only regret now is that we miss seeing her. ~ Alison and John L.
"Thank you so much for all of your hard work on this. Selling a NYC co-op is quite a process! You did a great job marketing the apartment and provided excellent advice through the negotiations which carried us through to the close today. I appreciate your efforts at the end to get us over the line and the positive attitude and good humor throughout." ~ Chris S.
We have been completely satisfied with Emma's approach and services…Emma is honest and completely trustworthy. We can rely on her to give us unbiased advice in the context of our specific objectives. She is insightful and consistently able to add her perspective in a constructive manner. ~ Martin and Allegra K.
Emma was unfailing honest and never tried to push us towards an apartment we couldn't afford. On top of this, she negotiated a terrific price for us. With Emma guiding us through the purchase of our first home, the entire process was easy from search to close. ~ Fabio and Nina L.
Emma was fantastic and really helped me get the best price for my apartment! She demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the current market which resulted in the right pricing to attract the most potential buyers. ~ Beth E.
Upon my arrival to New York, Emma must have taken me to over 50 apartments in five days in a row. Through the process she was very professional, honest and showed a vast knowledge of real estate transactions in New York City. ~ Arnaldo G.
