We have a property in Santa Fe that is currently rent to own under contract and we are concerned that the agent we originally worked with is more an advocate for our client than for us. Emily did some investigating into the situation and gave us some very professional advice which we followed up on. If and when the contract comes to end date we may end up with the house as we are concerned that our client might not be able to meet the balloon payment requirement.<br/><br/>At that point we fully intend to have Emily represent us and manage the sale of our house,

Emily is extremely knowledgeable about the Santa Few market and provided details (e.g., the age and original purpose of various structure, and what that implies about wiring, insulation, etc.) that I would not have thought to ask. She is efficient and thorough and her sense of humor is delightful. I would recommend her to anyone.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Santa Fe, NM.
These five star ratings are not an exaggeration; Emily Medvec is an outstanding realtor.
She thoroughly knows her market, and how to write a contract.
She will find you the right home, help negotiate its purchase, manage the process of a myriad of associated services, assisting with insurance, title, utilities, and, importantly, mortgage banking.
She will be your advocate. No one knows how to be the "go to" person like she can. You can absolutely rely on her.
We could not be happier.
Emily Medvec helped us before, during and after the sale.
We trust her, and we really like her.
First of all, let me say that Emily wins the award for the most professional, goal-oriented, computer-savvy, realtor of the year. I don't think I've worked with any professional who has worked harder to please and represent a client. She was unbelievably generous with her resources and her and my valuable time, and she was always seeking to know exactly what I was looking for. She really went well beyond the extra mile to accommodate me on my short visit to Santa Fe. A client needs to know that Emily is intense and focused. There is no messing around! She has one objective, to find the right home in the right location. I was very impressed with how well she knew Santa Fe and all its neighborhoods and community resources. I had done what I thought was my "homework" in preparing for my visit and search, but Emily had so much more she wanted me to do. Between visits to homes Emily was consulting changing MLS listings and connecting with her office assistant to get me immediate and up to date information. I did more in two days than I suspect most house hunters do in 2 weeks. I would not hesitate to recommend Emily or work with Emily again.
My wife and I will be relocating to the Santa Fe area shortly and chose to partner with Emily to see properties and learn about neighborhoods.
I first found Emily through her website - www.emilymedvec.com - and spoke with her for over an hour by phone for the initial contact. It was clear by that phone conversation that Emily was very different from most of the realtors with whom I have worked in the past. She is exceptionally intelligent, inquisitive, and driven to understand our needs and wants.
Upon meeting Emily face-to-face, we were even more impressed. She demonstrated a deep understanding of the local real estate market, business, economics, as well as the pros and cons of each neighborhood we visited. She listened carefully to our feedback on each property we visited and used that learning to inform further options to consider. In addition, she was very generous with additional information about living and working in Santa Fe.
Most impressive was her ability to identify an exceptionally great property for us, based on the initial phone conversation. The property had not even been formally listed but through Emily's network and relationships, she was able to arrange two showings of that property for us. Indeed she hit the bull’s eye with that property.
Emily is high energy, exceptionally knowledgeable, intelligent, and driven to satisfy. These are the characteristics I want in my real estate professional.
I consider myself lucky to have found Emily and recommend her to anybody who needs a top-notch Realtor.
Before knowing Emily, I did not know what kind of difference a superior agent can make. We had two houses in Santa Fe and we put one on market in 2005, it took us 5 years and worked with 6 realtors to try to get rid of the house but failed untill I got to know Emily. She helped me to sell the house in 3 months with great sale price.
We moved out of Santa Fe in 2011 and rented out the other house. We deicided to sell that house this April and Emily for sure was the only agent we called to help us. The house is a high end house and we live in east coast now so everything needs to be done remotely. Fro this reason, we really need the agent to be responsible, knowlegable, deligent and sharp to get the house sold. Emily not only just did not dissapoint us, she gave us a big surprise! The house was put on the market in early May and was just closed today with an excellent sale price. It only took her 37 days to get everything done!
The process indeed was not as smooth as we thought,-- the house need to be cleaned and fixed before put on the market. HOA people was very picky so quite a lot of extra work need to be done before HOA signed the disclosure. Since we are thousands miles away from Santa Fe, Emily is the only person we can count on and she did not dissapoint us at all. She worked very hard on everything-- including getting different contractors to do the fixture work, negotiated with HOA officials back and forth reagrds to a lot of headache requests they asked. Last week she almost spent the whole weekend at the property to get the final critical issue to resolve. We truly appreciate her professionalism and feel so fortunate to call her to help us in the begining.
I have another Chinese friend moved out Santa Fe in 2010 and wanted his house to be sold. I recommended Emily to him and the house was sold in about two months. Considering this kind of track record, I believe Emily must have some very valuable techniques that other agents do not have. You may experience that as well if you work with her in the future.
We I highly recommend Emily for her integrity, skills, knowlege and hard work!
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in La Cienega, Santa Fe, NM 87507
When I first called Emily, she returned my call promptly. As I am from the East coast I was looking for someone that I felt would honestly address my concerns. She is very well informed and was able to anwer all my questions. She's a true professional. I would highly recommend Emily Medvec.
