Emily brings 18 years of sales and customer service experience to William Pitt Sotheby’s.  

 Growing up in the Garden District of New Orleans, an early appreciation for architecture and interior design came naturally.

20+ years in that city also posed a philosophical inquiry: Home as necessity/dwelling vs. Home as an idea, a fundamental element of who we are and who we want to be - It is crucial that both of these  definitions be considered with every client and that's one of many reasons people from vastly diverse backgrounds enjoy working with Emily. 

Having spent summers and holidays with her grandparents in Lyme, Essex and on Fishers Island, she has always considered the Connecticut shoreline home and is thrilled to now be a resident of both Old Lyme and Chester. 

A great believer in the future of Connecticut, she is passionate about finding and supporting all local enterprise.

"Emily worked incredibly hard for me, especially advocating for me during the fiasco for the house I was trying to purchase. The inventory was low and bidding was brutal. She stayed focused on my family’s best interest and protected our bottomline. 

During the search process she made booklets with photos, specs and a place to take notes. She also went above and beyond by going to town hall and pulling any records she could find regarding the property and the neighborhood we were searching in. Having those details for each house made deciphering and touring much easier. I try to be very organized and her booklets are a great tool.

 Emily is fabulous! She is kind, smart, approachable, extremely knowledgeable of the region and incredibly thorough. I am very grateful that my relocation company assigned me to not only a great agent but to an incredible person who is now our beloved friend. 

You will not be disappointed when you choose Emily as your agent." - Elizabeth Ballard
