There are many words that come to mind when I think of Emily; not least of which are: kind, patient, smart, efficient, hard working and foremost trusted.
When I decided to start looking into buying my first home towards the end of last year, my colleague and friend highly recommended that I contact Emily Newmark. From our very first phone conversation, I felt cared for and excited to work with someone who understood what I was saying; both on a practical and on an intuitive level. Five months after meeting Emily, I am now moving into my first home. I learned a lot about the process and came to the realization that a home purchase is such a personal and important thing. There are so many emotions that weave in and out of the experience of buying a first home. I went through them all... but Emily did everything in her hands to make the process compassionate, smooth, and professional. She listened, returned phone calls and emails, showed up to appointments on time, always communicated and explained the gazillion documents that had to be signed. She never tried to talk me into anything I was not comfortable with, instead she would calmly explain and give me space to think things through.
Emily is young and energetic but also a total pro with over 16 years of experience. She is a people person who projects confidence and the ability to calmly and efficiently move things along. She is not just interested in making 'the deal'... she is building relationships. Emily, I express my deepest appreciation to you for everything you did to make this happen. You Rock!

Emily is the BEST!! I cannot recommend her enough. She's a local expert with years of experience in the field. She gave me great advice, and held my hand through my first house sale. I'd highly recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, highly respected agent that they can trust. 5 stars!!!
Emily is simply fantastic! She appropriately valued our home and aggressively marketed it with grace, style and hustle! During escrow Emily was thoroughly involved and always accessible to address our questions and concerns. Our escrow hit a few snags and Emily sprang into action to resolve the issues and calm our nerves. Our home sold for more than we'd expected thanks to her expertise. I've bought and sold several homes over the years and Emily is by far the best Realtor we've worked with. I highly recommend her if you want professionalism, real estate expertise, maximum effort and sincerity.
If you want an agent that is always looking out for your best interests look no further than Emily Rose Newmark. She is a kind, generous woman who passionately loves what she does. I was the seller when I had the good fortune to meet Emily. Her initial presentation was surprisingly thorough. She is proud of the marketing program she has created and is quick to share it, while other agents act like it's proprietary information until you list with them. Emily never pressured me to list with her until I was ready and it meet my timeline.
Selling a house in Los Angeles isn't particularly difficult given the high demand, however, Emily has several strategies that ensure you get the best price. I followed her advice and it garnered an extra $50k over asking. I left town for a few days and came back to multiple offers and within 24 hours we were in escrow. Once Emily got her marketing machine going, it went fast.
Now most people figure that's the hard part. Once you get your price, you can sit back and wait for the check...
Uh... hold up popping that champagne cork. Now is when it can get interesting. I can tell you from my recent experience, getting through escrow is the real nail biter. When you have a difficult buyer, who's secret agenda is slowly revealed throughout the escrow, and a buying agent who sort of disappears (probably because the client is so frustrating) you want a real veteran that can keep the process moving forward.
Without providing the gory details, the twists and turns in this escrow was like a nightmarish roller coaster that had no end. So, there were a few times Emily had to play hardball such as when the buyer was about to default and begged to have escrow extended, Emily was able to get the buyer's deposit released to me plus an additional per diem for each day escrow remained open in exchange.
I thought I knew a lot about real estate sales as this wasn't my first house but I learned a lot, moreover, Emily and I consider ourselves friends having survived this crazy, 60-day escrow together. So, it was an oddly, pleasurable experience watching a real master at work even though we had an unpredictable buyer creating havoc throughout the entire escrow.
So, I can't recommend Emily enough. She is professional, prepared, and has the experience and temperament to deal with any situation that can and will arise during the sale of your home. She'll aggressively market your house and when you follow her advice you'll likely receive multiple offers within a week of it hitting the MLS. She is a great communicator and you'll never wonder what is happening at any point in the process. When it comes to traversing all that can happen during escrow, she stays on top of each phase, from inspection to the escrow documents plus the complete loan procedure. She'll even contact the buyer's loan officer if she feels something is dragging or the buyer is being evasive. She even stays in touch with the back up offers just in the event you may have to jump ship and begin the process over (which we considered three different times) Even if there is a weak link in the chain, she'll take up the slack just to keep everything on track and get escrow closed as soon as possible. For Emily this isn't just a job, it's what she does and she does it with passion and joy. You'll enjoy working with her because no matter what happens, one way or another you know she is watching your back. How often can we say that about the many professionals we hire in our lifetime?
My siblings and I want to thank you for all your efforts regarding the sale of our parents’ home. After the passing of our mother a couple of years ago, and the recent move of our father into Assisted Living, it was an emotional time for all of us. While we understood the business side of selling the house, we also ideally wanted someone who understood this was a home our parents had lived in and loved for close to 40 years, and would treat the sale accordingly.
You were sensitive to our situation, and your marketing of the house was perfect. Within a few days of our first Open House, we had 4 strong offers. Your guidance in helping us select the best offer was invaluable. You were with us every step of the way during the escrow, and whatever bumps or glitches came along were handled effortlessly by you.
You helped turn what could have been an extremely daunting task into a very manageable and pleasant experience. We are all so pleased that such a lovely family purchased the home, and now the house will again be filled with love and laughter – the best we could have hoped for.

"Only because of Emily is our family enjoying our dream home! We were facing a nightmare short sale that should have been impossible to close. But thanks to Emily’s perseverance, knowledge, and positive attitude each hurdle, pitfall, and dead end was overcome. She was highly recommended to us and now we can eagerly and easily do the same. Thank you Emily for all of your tireless and professional work!"
-Chris, Kerri, Andy, and Ellie W.
We have had the pleasure of working with Emily on three home purchase and sale transactions. She is one of the most positive and capable real estate agents we have worked with and we have bought and sold numerous homes over the years. She provided excellent guidance in multiple offer situations on both buying and selling. Emily and her team handled all the transactions professionally and with ease. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of realtor. - J & M Wallis
Thank you for personally delivering the Gorgeous Edible Arrangement, and EXTREMELY generous Home Goods gift card!!! You are such a beautiful dynamic lady with a glowing inner spirit of faith, balance and joy. It is my honor to have spent time with such an inspirational lady through two transactions, with the final phase to come. I am looking forward to the big move when everything is settled. If I get a hint of anyone thinking of needing a realtor, you will be given high recommendations on both buying and selling their property! Thanks a million for all you have done on my behalf!!!!!!
I think I am going through separation anxiety, not having reason to talk/ text you almost daily ;-(
SOOO looking forward to tomorrow to get the key and explore MY house, and let it talk to me about colors to paint, counters and floors and doors! Again, thank you for being the person you are. You were one of God's blessings when Steve engaged you to interview a year ago. Though each realtor we interviewed had some great selling points that turned our heads, Steve and I felt you were the perfect mix of business smarts, assertiveness with sensitivity, and warm, compassionate 'people skills', to be the perfect fit!
Emily, thank you so much for all of your hard work and guidance in helping us find the perfect rental property. You made the entire process, from discovering great properties in our price range, to giving suggestions on what makes a good rental, very easy and enjoyable. Whenever we had questions or concerns, you were right there with an answer. You are awesome...and we would recommend you to anyone needing a great realtor! - Pam Buckley
We are so happy with Emily's incredible attention to detail. No surprise; as she was equally efficient for our neighbor in getting the most incredible deal for all of us. With her experience and amazing diligence we had our house sold before open house! I would recommend anyone to Emily Newmark, and I have. I got her number from a neighbor too, and she has done incredibly well for all of us. Truly amazing, and we are so happy with the results. - Jo Alice and Scott Braswell
I was first introduced to Emily Rose Newmark (Lewis) by my friends Scott and Jo Alice Braswell. I was experiencing financial problems and was considering a reverse mortgage on my property. Emily came in the door with a positive productive spirit and our relationship began. She told me her feelings about the reverse mortgage and it matched some of the opinions that I had already received. She told me to give her two weeks and she would sell my house, find another one for me and I would be able to solve my financial difficulties.
Well it happened and even sooner than two weeks.
Emily and her assistant Sue are extremely efficient and connected in the real estate market of this area and that made all if this possible.
I sold my house at a fair/ market price and was able to purchase a condominium/ townhouse that I love and am enjoying tremendously. I am extremely thankful to Emily,
and would highly recommend her to assist anyone going through this important experience.

We were looking for an agent to sell a home that was in a "trust". I did not know any realtors in the area so we lined up 5 to interview. Emily stood out among them all. Her excitement was contagious and her real estate knowledge and professionalism was second to none. We are so glad we chose Emily to represent us in this transaction. As with any real estate transaction we had our ups and downs, but throughout, Emily was on top of every situation that came up. She is a true professional. There were times when she had keep the buyer side of the transaction moving. She was firm yet professional in her demeanor. I was very glad we were on Emily's side! If you don't have a realtor (or even if you already do) in my opinion you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not at least consult with Emily. You'll know after that meeting if she will be a good fit for you. My guess is, she will. I highly recommend her. In fact, she impressed us so much, we are having her take care of two more properties we have to sell! Steve & Barbara Lange
"My family and I have never had things easy and we are used to having to rely only on ourselves and to fight and work hard for what we want....and then we met you. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate you and your efforts. You've got guts and tenacity, but what's most remarkable is that you use those traits to help others. You have been like a general rallying us troops when we're down, like a warmly lit light house guiding us through a storm, you have gone above and beyond and I just want to tell you again that your efforts, generosity, and commitment never go unnoticed.
I have sung your praises to everyone I know in the valley. Thank you for fighting for me and with me."
You are one of a kind…a real star. You were the perfect person to help my folks jump over hurdles and use your amazing practical knowledge and people skills to make thing happen.
I know I speak for my folks in saying that you and your team will be the recipients of future referrals. Thanks Again,"

"Thank you, Emily!! You and Sue have been absolutely wonderful and have made the whole process better than we could have ever imagined!"
- Perine Family
"We lived in our home for over 50 years and I was dreading the experience of selling our home. She was not only efficient but caring. Emily Rose was knowledgeable, professional, considerate and hardworking. She works 24/7, I have never known anyone who worked as hard as her. She sold our house in 5 days for $60,000 more than the asking price. We had 8 bids and she checked out which one would have the best credit for buying the house. She is unbelievable; she made the experience so easy."
- Zelda Gold
"We would highly recommend Emily Newmark and Kishaya Perry as realtors.
They have been a joy to work with. They were easily accessible ( even at odd hours!), responded promptly to queries and were thorough in their quest to helping us find our wonderful new home.
If you want to work with people who are dependable, trustworthy, experienced, amicable and truly professional then Emily and Kishaya are definitely the realtors for you!"
- Olu and Bola Shasanmi
This all happened so quickly that it is like a blur - 2 1/2 weeks from broker's open house to closing! I appreciate your guidance and professionalism throughout the transaction. I was truly surprised by the level of interest we had in my Mom's house and it was undoubtedly due in part to the marketing plan and effort you undertook. Thank you for being so easy to deal with and responsive. I could not be happier with the experience.

"We were first-time home buyers and switched to Emily after working with someone else whom we felt started pressuring us to make offers on homes we didn't feel were right for us. Emily was extremely patient with us and allowed us to take our time to find the right home! She is also very good at explaining everything."
"I must say I am very impressed in the way you have organized and responded to all inquiries and text messages/phone calls. I only wish everyone in the business was as professional as you and your team." D. Rayas - Fellow Realtor
"I cant reiterate enough how awesome of a job you have done for us. We both feel that your work ethic of doing all the hard work and leaving all the easy stuff ( If there even is anything left) to us. You have managed to achieve every thing you said you would do without any false promises and I hope you are as proud of yourself professionally as we are and you can quote me on that ! Have a great weekend , talk to you soon. Sincerely,"
James & Christine Danicic.
"I went through a lot of realtors before I met Emily. When I met Emily I immediately had a good feeling about her. As a first time homebuyer, I was extremely nervous. Emily was very patient with me and I never doubted that she had my best interests in mind. We actually looked for a home for me for years and Emily never gave up on me or made me feel like I was wasting her time. I don't think I would have made it through the home buying process if Emily had not been my agent. When it is time to sell my property, I have no doubt that Emily will be my agent again." - J Hawkins
"As a first time home buyer, Emily was informative, patient, and easy to work with. Always readily available and responsive." Jason Little
Whooohooo...Great job Emily for staying on top of this for us...considering we live so far away, you made it easy for us to get in to see houses, were always available to talk, and walked us through the whole process..Thank you sooo much for your help and for being so cool:)

Emily is the best! Her work ethic and honest care for our family and situation was clear from the beginning. She literally went above and beyond in every aspect.
