Testimonials

Emily was exactly what we wanted in an agent. She not only listened to our interests and helped us find the perfect place... But also held us accountable when we strayed away from the intended path! True efficiency occurs when everyone is straightforward and Emily couldn't have done anything more to help make this process easier. And this is coming from someone who also works in real estate for a living. I've already recommended Emily to friends and associates and plan to continue to recommend her and Coldwell Banker going forward. Shes the best.

Emily was committed to finding the perfect home that met all of our needs for the entire six month search. She is incredibly knowledgable about the Chicago market and truly educated us during the process. She was also very flexible and easy to get ahold of with any questions or last minute requests. Her patience and candor made it such an easy process and we've recommended her to anyone in the market (whether buying or renting). We truly appreciate everything she has done - especially keeping the search fun and stress-free.

Emily was truly a pleasure to work with. We are new to Chicago and we did not know the city at all, we had no understanding of Chicago market and what your money could buy coupled with a mix of tastes/needs. All in all not the easiest party to please.

Emily was very professional, polished, showed up on time and always listened. She was patient, very knowledgeable, well prepared for each day of appts and most importantly her follow up was timely and thorough. We were pleased with our purchase and how all the transactions were carried out.

I would highly recommend Emily, in fact we gave her details to a friend of ours that are looking to buy.

A pleasure !

Thank you

Emily is very professional, patient and organized. She listened to what we wanted in our first home and helped find the perfect place in a neighborhood that suited us. Emily made time to show us about 50 places before settling on one. She was involved throughout the entire process and I knew I could count on her to answer any questions we had as first time home buyers. When it came time to sell, I was proud to have Emily represent us. We have recommended her to our family and friends because we know how fabulous she is.
Elizabeth and Ron Silvia
We bought our first condo with Emily and the entire process went smoothly from start to finish. Emily was incredibly patient with us, as we looked at nearly 40 different properties before settling on our current space. Emily is smart, organized and very professional - we trust Emily implicitly and we plan on using her again in the future.
Leigh & Russell Dyer
Working with Emily was absolutely fabulous from start to finish. We first worked with Emily to list our condo and were able to sell it in 4 days with multiple offers. Emily was key to the negotiation and instrumental in achieving a great offer. Then when we had a tight timeframe to find a place, Emily took the time (very quickly) to understand what we wanted, our budget and desired location. Emily was extremely organized with every appointment and she put in a lot of effort scheduling showings and finding places that would be of interest. Emily is always reachable anytime of the day and is very responsive. Emily takes a very personable and professional approach to her job and is so fun to work with. She works very hard and cares for her clients. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Emily throughout the entire process. Emily is professional, energetic and knowledgeable. We continue to recommend Emily to friends and look forward to working with her again when we are ready to sell our home.

Emily Smart LeMire was a true partner in the home-buying process when relocating from Pittsburgh to Chicago. Since we were "hunting" from out-of-town, Emily primarily guided us through our real estate search remotely over email, MLS listings, and phone calls. Her communications were always prompt and professional, and we felt very prepared when finally visiting Chicago for a marathon weekend of property searches. Even through closing, Emily and her network (home inspector, real estate attorney etc) worked diligently to make sure the process went smoothly. Buying a home can be overwhelming, but Emily worked hard to be sure we were prepared and confident in our decision. Thanks, Emily!

It was a real pleasure (and success) working with Emily.  In a profession where seemingly too many agents have misaligned interests, Emily is an outlier. She is a professional in every sense of the word.  Emily is extremely likable, honest and trustworthy, shows genuine devotion and commitment to her client's needs, and above all, displays an adept understanding for her client's desires and objectives.  Truly speaking, her agenda is your agenda and I never felt failed in that regard.  She's fantastic.

I have had the pleasure of working with Emily on several occasions. Selling a home and moving can be a challenge, but it has helped to have a partner who understood my needs and was willing to go the distance to explore every possible option until I felt comfortable with transitioning into a new place. I truly felt that I had a partner in the process and have been extremely happy with the end result every time.

Throughout our home-buying experience Emily was professional, prompt and in touch with our needs as buyers. She guided us through the process making it less intimidating, and helped us find a place we love and are happy to own. We would recommend her to friends and would use her again.

Emily is the consummate professional. In today's market, you really need a Realtor with great experience and determination to sell at a reasonable price. From coaching us through pricing to advising us on improvements to make it ready to sell, she was our partner through each step of the process. I strongly recommend Emily to any buyer or seller who wants not only a hard worker, but someone who is so enjoyable to work with.
Patrick Griffin, Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL
Emily was a delight to work with; professional yet personable every step of the way.  She was able to determine our needs and set our expectations as well as those of potential buyers...... well, should I say buyer, singular.  Emily SOLD our home with our very first showing.  We negotiated and went to contract in five days!  I have recommended Emily to my closest friends and continue to do so.
Shawna & Brad, Wicker Park, Chicago, IL
Working with Emily was an absolute pleasure. Buying a home can be very stressful and overwhelming, especially for a first time home-buyer like myself. Emily simplifies the experience for her clients by structuring the decision-making process into a manageable format. She has a true knack for identifying the likes and dislikes of each client and tailoring them for a superb experience. She works very hard to find the right home and the right price and she does not waste any time.
Chip Wille, Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL
Going into the home buying process as an inexperienced first-time buyer, Emily completely put me at ease with her professional local knowledge and resources while allowing me to express concerns and ask questions throughout the process.

Emily maintains a professional attitude that is her signature mark for providing quality customer service. She will go the extra mile to ensure you get the best home for the best price and is a real estate agent who truly cares in addition to being committed to her clients.
