Remarkably upbeat, Emily makes each real estate transaction a rewarding adventure. Her 17 year track record of success selling real estate in Austin, Manhattan and Los Angeles have shaped Emily’s career as a consummate professional.
A 5th generation Texan, Emily graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. She went on to earn a Master’s degree in Counseling from Alfred University in New York. Her exceptional people skills command cooperation and teamwork, creating profitable, smooth transactions for her clients.
Emily began her Real Estate career in Los Angeles during the highly competitive boom of the early 2000’s. Her swift success earned her a position on the Agent Leadership Council of her Westside LA office (top 10%). From the start, she embraced coaching and training from industry experts to help master the craft of real estate sales and negotiation.
She brought her unique skillset home to Austin in 2006. While growing her Real Estate practice, she coached Austin Chamber of Commerce members on generating business by referral and in 2007 was honored as Volunteer of the Year. She also purchased a condo in Central Austin and served as the Condominium Association Board President.
In 2011, seduced by adventure, Emily moved to NYC. She was fortunate to play a supporting role on the top-producing team at Sotheby’s International Realty’s SOHO office. With team sales ranging from studio apartments to $10M+ penthouses, she got a first class education in the the art of marketing and selling luxury homes.
Since returning to Austin in 2014, Emily has continued to excel. Working as part of the Urbanspace Residential team, she’s passionate about the people she serves – often aiding in tough transitions such as divorce or downsizing after decades. Her professionalism and warmth garner rave reviews from her clients. An asset on either side of a deal, she shines as a listing agent with a knack for staging and presentation. Her love of design and decorating has led her to offer additional services as a residential stylist and stager.
Emily currently lives in SW Austin but she knows the downtown lifestyle intimately having lived in 5 different condo buildings in the urban core. She serves on the Board of Directors for Women and Their Work, a local contemporary arts organization, celebrating 40 years and frequently winning Best Gallery in the Austin Chronicle Awards. Emily is also a Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) and a member of the Austin Luxury Network.
“Emily is a force of nature. She whipped me and my house into shape in no time, and the house sold in just a few days for about 15% over asking price, with multiple offers. I could not be happier with my experience with her. She’s organized, responsive, practical, a good listener, and very, very professional. If you’re tired of wasting time and want to get moving, call Emily!”
“Emily Apollo was essential to discovering the perfect place for our family to call home. Her positive energy and welcoming approach was exactly what we needed to facilitate our relocation from another state. She was extremely organized, and able to provide extensive details about the neighborhood surrounding each potential property. She listened to our likes and dislikes, and adjusted the property viewings accordingly. We would highly recommend Emily to everyone in Austin.”
“Emily is smart, professional, energetic, and a top notch project manager. Her marketing expertise guided us through the sale of our home and she was instrumental in helping us make the right choice of a new home. I recommend her completely! Emily is the best!”
“I listed my Austin, TX condo with Emily and she did an excellent job of working with the tenants and negotiating the sale. As an out-of state owner, I greatly appreciated her expertise in helping me select the right offer and her communication throughout the listing and sale process. I recommend her highly! Thank you Emily!”
“Emily is the consummate professional. She’s a great negotiator, very fair and honest and one of the most personable agents I have had the pleasure of working with. If you are looking to buy or sell, do it with Emily!”
“I referred Emily to a friend who was dissatisfied with her previous listing agent. I was confident that Emily would provide the right amount of energy, aggressive marketing, and real estate experience into the relationship and I was more than right. Not only did my friend hire her after interviewing several agents, Emily was able to get the property sold almost as soon as it was listed.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Emily and have always been met with the same vibrant attitude and expert knowledge. She is extremely personable and knows Austin real estate inside and out. She is fabulous to work with and to be around. If you’re not using Emily to buy or sell then you’re doing yourself a great disservice.”
“Emily was simply a pleasure to work with. She worked with me to figure out my needs, supplied me with on target information and never once wasted my time. She knows her stuff. She was able to make things happen when they needed to, and she knows how finesse a situation when it’s called for. I would call her for every transaction. Thanks for making it happen. I love my house.”
“I’ve known Emily for years and I have to say that she is one of the most knowledgeable Realtors in Austin. I often get the chance to network with Emily and she is a wealth of knowledge about the Austin market and is a superb networker. I’d recommend her to anyone who needed a great real estate agent.”
