I worked with Emily Read and I could not have had a better experience. I was a first time home buyer full of questions and indecision. She was so patient with me steering me away from homes that were more expensive helping me find my perfect home. We looked for over a year and I never felt rushed or judged by her. She is a consummate professional responding to my texts at any hour promptly. When it came time to negotiate she was as ferocious as she is kind got me a new roof and 3k for an HVAC repair as well as 10k off asking price in this competitive market! I had such a good experience I referred her to my sister who she was just as attentive and helpful for. In a profession full of shady characters the Stern Team has been a pillar of integrity and kindness. Cannot recommend Emily Read enough. I was not compensated in any way for this review.
