I highly recommend if you're looking for an agent.. please contact Emily!! Guarantee you will be extremely satisfied!
— Adam R.
When it came time to sell two homes and purchase our forever home, there was not doubt in our minds which agent we trusted most for this process. Simply stated, Emily Ford is outstanding! Her vast experience, professionalism and knowledge sets her apart. We accomplished three home transactions in a four-week period and the process was absolutely seamless. Emily's communication and attention to every detail was spot on. She loves what she does and it shows! We truly cannot say enough good things about Emily, and our experience, and we highly recommend her to anyone that is in the market to sell or buy a home.
— Karen B.
I highly recommend Emily Ford with Morgan, Milzow & Ford. She is hardworking, very knowledgeable, thorough and professional. She sold our home quickly and has been very patient with us while we search for our new home. Emily is well connected with area businesses and knows exactly who to refer you to for anything home related. She is dedicated to her clients and her work. I would absolutely recommend her to family/friends.
— Kelli G.
Besides being extremely personable, Emily is outstanding in her field. She was very helpful throughout the entire buying process. We bought our house sight unseen while living on the west coast. Emily made it easy and comfortable—she even worked with our association on items since we couldn’t be here yet. We would highly recommend her without hesitation. She has a wealth of knowledge and provided many resources as well. If you’re looking to buy in this area, we feel she’s the best!
— Bruce C.
We had a challenging sale and Emily had things under control every step of the way. Her experience and self assured demeanor left us feeling confident that our sale would be completed on time, and it was. We cannot recommend Emily highly enough. Extremely happy with her performance.
— Becky K.
Emily is top of the line for realtors and the home buying experience. She is very knowledgeable on Michigan locations, pricing, and realty law. She is an expert at understanding the customers needs and finding a home that works for them. She is a no pressure sales person and makes you feel like part of the family. She helped me purchase a home and sell my home and from both aspects, she made the process easy and efficient. She is always available to address questions even post sale and is a true partner throughout the process.
— Jody T.
Emily was recommended to us as "the best of the best" and she met and exceeded that in every way. She was timely, efficient, professional, honest, kind, and personable. Throughout each step of the process, with both selling and buying, she took her time to explain what to expect next and answer our (many) questions. We are a busy family and wanted to move forward with the process in a timely manner with someone that had many years of experience, was well-known in the business, and had secured relationships with those that we needed in other areas along the way. Her communication and follow up are consistent and her high level of organization makes you feel secure that everything is being handled just the way it should be. I never felt the need to research anything because we had complete trust that our best interest was always at the front of her mind in every situation. I highly recommend Emily!
— jomicheleb2
Emily goes above and beyond for her clients all the time! She also helped my boyfriend sell his house for more than the asking price. She is super knowledgeable about her community and what's going on and she has good contacts when you need something. Very resourceful and unassuming!
— Kathy P.
We set out to find the best Agent in Oakland County, and that is exactly what we got when we hired Emily. She somehow sells the most homes in the area, and still makes you feel like you are her only client. She leads negotiations and all interactions with your best interest, and is extremely detail oriented. I can't say enough positive things about Emily and her professionalism.
— Carl L.
Emily helped us to sell our house. Through the process, she was very professional and responsive. We felt that she was willing to help. We worked together and prepared the house for listing. Once it was listed, thanks to Emily, our house was sold in a few days with higher than listed price. We highly recommend Emily as a realtor.
— Jun J.
Emily was wonderful to work with. She was very patience with me, guided me through the process and answered every question I had. I highly recommend Emily.
— Clark
Emily did great at helping us with our short sale! It was done in a very timely manner and she kept us informed every step of the way!
— Carrie
Emily was very helpful both in the purchase of our house and in the sale. She is very knowledgeable about the market and is very patient. I would recommend Emily to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house in Michigan.
— dbw5455
Emily has great knowledge of the housing market, knew exactly what I was looking for and didn't waste my time pushing houses I didn't want to see. She has a great personality and was a joy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good agent.
— CC4533221
I bought my first home with very little money down and got the home of my dreams! Emily is the best.
— Stacey S.
Emily is one of the best! She sold our house and also found us a great new one. She knows the market and provided excellent insight throughout the buying and selling process. I'd recommend her to anyone.
— ESD4545
Emily Ford could write the book on being an expert agent. Emily worked tirelessly with my wife and I picking out the home to raise our new family in. Emily was patient and always professional when it came to our dumb questions and our quirky comments and requirements.
— Rob W.
I had a great experience with Emily! She was very knowledgable on the topics I requested information on and went above and beyond to help get the house I wanted. I've recommended her to quite a few people that have expressed interest in purchasing homes in the area and will continue to do so!
— nesterk
Emily Ford is the best realtor! She found what I wanted even when I changed my mind several times. She was patient with me for a year and a half as I explored so many houses in so many different locations. As I was searching for my home we took many adventures exploring new territory to both of us and she was always positive. Emily listened as I defined and redefined my expectations of my dream home. Although my basic ideas stayed the same, location and subtle differences came to light. Emily gave her opinion on the structural soundness of a house and the asthetics as well. When we walked into what is now my home, we both knew it was the right place for me. That was the only time (in a year and a half) that Emily gently nudged me to make a decision. The home I bought was on the market for one week when I fell in love with it. MY HOME is my dream home and I would never have found it without EMILY FORD!!!! Thank you Emily!!!
— Jan H.
Emily is the the best realtor on the planet. She is extremely hard working and makes herself available any time day or night. She is really smart which is important in navigating todays market. She is honest and generally a great person to work with. My wife and I were a total pain and she was awesome. We decided on a home in Clarkston and her knowledge of the area is unprecedented.
— Chad C.
Emily was excellent to work with, we spent many months finding the right home and selling our previous home, Emily handled everything professionally and made both experiences enjoyable and easy! Thanks Emily!
— Scott & Janette O.
Emily is an excellent realtor. She was recommended to us by a friend due to her extensive knowledge and expertise in this field. Being a first-time home buyer, those qualities were especially important. Throughout the process, Emily proved her worth by making each step seem very easy (especially at the end when most experience stress). She's highly professional and her expertise in this field is second-to-none. Emily will go above and beyond to ensure that your home buying experience is both memorable and painless. Because both my husband and I work, Emily met us later in the evening and on weekends to house hunt. This never seemed to inconvenience her, and she was always so pleasant while we looked at houses. You can tell she really enjoys her job. Additionally, she always had our best interests in mind while negotiating a price for our house. She never went out of our comfort zone, yet she would help us weigh the pros and cons of an offer. We have recommended Emily to several friends, and will continue to do so as we had a wonderful experience.
— user997581
I was purchasing a foreclosed home and Emily was relentless and ensuring that things were done correctly and followed through. Very knowledgeable, helpful, courteous and professional. She also interacted extremely well with my mortgage broker and the selling agents. Very high recommendation.
— guzziman
We are just starting to look for a new home. Emily was helpful and showed us several homes. She is continuing to provide us with updates. When we return in the spring (we are snowbirds), we will continue looking.
— user3031623
After working with two agents that got us virtually nowhere, I called Emily and I'm glad I did. She was incredible from start to finish. I felt as if I was her only client, knowing very well that was far from the case. She showed us any property we wanted to see on our schedule and sometimes with very little notice. She is very knowledgeable of the market and other agents and knew the best way to handle each situation. She helped us quickly close the short sale that we bought, and even gave a great reference for a mortgage company. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell, and if/when the time comes to need an agent again, Emily is the only call I will make.
— Jon E.
Emily just helped us negotiate the purchase of a house with a seller who at times made the inspection and purchasing process somewhat challenging for all concerned. Emily not only maintained patience and good grace as she navigated us through some frustrating moments with the seller, she was also able to put us in touch with some affordable contractors who will be helping us make some improvements to the house after we take possession. Emily also took the time to make sure we understood every step of the process, and she was always very accessible by phone and email. As busy people, we also appreciated her use of the internet for document signing where possible. We highly recommend her.
— user1459023
Emily Ford is Oakland County's top real estate agent. She goes above and beyond for her clients. What impressed us the most was the dedication she gives to each client. Her knowledge of the market is unmatched. If you are buying or selling a home, Emily will undoubtably get the job done
— Jeremy Z.
In the past, I've found every real estate agent to be nearly useless. I was given a recommendation to use Emily in my house search. Emily returned every single phone call, e-mail, message in a very timely manner. Her knowledge of the industry and local area allowed me to find the house I was looking for. She has shown me over 20 houses before I found the one I decided on. She took the non-sense out of the house buying process. She astounded me with her professionalism, integrity, and knowledge. In short, I don't believe I'll ever use another real estate agent other than Emily Ford. I highly recommend her.
— Al S.
Emily was a true pleasure to work with. She had a commanding knowledge of local neighborhoods, which helped us to identify the areas that best fit our needs. Her use of technology for communication and document processing was fast and efficient. She was very responsive, returning calls quickly and professionally. Emily was also incredibly proactive, working on solutions to issues as they arose, rather than waiting on direction. We would highly recommend Emily!
— user7306471
Emily did a fantastic for us with our first home purchase-If you are moving to Michigan, don't waste your time looking for other agents! Emily grew up here and has incredible local knowledge. We lived in NJ and had limited time to make a home purchase. My wife and I flew in and Emily showed us 27 houses in a day and a half! She even tried to buy us lunch. The house we ended up closing on wasn't even on our list of houses to view. On her own, she took us to this house because she thought we'd like to see it and we fell in love with it! She clearly went above and beyond to serve us and I wouldn't recommend anyone else.
— Josh & Rachel
Very easy to work with her. She is on top of everything, I love how easy it is to reach her, she responds quickly & sets appointments up quickly. Sends me daily updates on houses. It's been a pleasure working with her in our house hunting process.
— KEL10111
Emily acted as our agent when we sold our home in Clarkston. She provided excellent advice and guidance throughout the process, including practical advice on staging and improvements prior to listing. Our house had showings immediately, and we had a firm agreement 3 days after listing. Emily went above and beyond by assisting our buyer as a few challenges came up before closing, including handling addendums to make sure they were done correctly. Throughout the process Emily was extremely responsive to texts, emails and calls, and was also proactive in communicating. We selected Emily as our agent after reading reviews on the Zillow and the internet, and she ended up exceeding the high expectations set by these reviews. I have dealt with a number of real estate agents over 30 years, and Emily is easily the best.
— Ed S.
Emily is extremely helpful from the day you start looking to the day you close and even after closing. She follows up on everything that has to be done and even carries out some of the paperwork for you. She has excellent knowledge of people that can also help you with such things as plumbing, roofing, flooring, painting, etc. She is a true professional that I have worked with several times and trust her judgement.
— zuser20140515074614062
We had a fantastic experience selling our home with Emily Ford. When she heard we were interested in a local realtor, she wasted no time explaining the procedure and guiding us through the process. From the beginning, I felt she had our best interest at heart and would do everything in her power and expertise to provide the best level of service. We set our expectations and she exceeded them and helped us understand what was a realistic listing price is in today's market. I'd say she knew what she was doing...our house was listed and sold within a week. We couldn't be happier with her level of service and commitment. You won't be disappointed, she's someone you want in your corner when it comes to real estate.
— Michelle
Emily listed my home and sold it for the top price in the area in just two days.She handled any problems that arose proffessionaly as well as skillfully to expedite the closing. I have been in the construction business for over thirty years and have rarely seen such an articulate as well as skilled salesperson.
— Bruce B.
Emily was amazing to work with. Don't bother looking around for another agent because she's right here. From her impressive knowledge of the Clarkston area to her great responsiveness, professionalism and ability to work around our schedules was truly a great experience. She listed our home and sold it in 3 days and then because of her knowledge and info of the area she found us a home that hadn't even hit the market yet which was wonderful. Her use of technology was great in getting daily house updates and document processing. She was just a pleasure to work with and cannot thank her enough for finding our dream home.
— user59651951
We used Emily to search for a bigger 'family' type home in Clarkston. She knows the area like the back of her hand and couldn't be quicker in responding to requests and questions. We were very particular with what we were looking for with the style and location so the search lasted about 7 months and she hung with us through the duration. She gave us room to look at houses without hovering and was always genuine and honest when we ask for her advice and opinions. All of the interactions were very positive and when it finally came time to offer and negotiate the purchase everything couldn't have went smoother. I have only great things to say about Emily and would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone who's in the market.
— wy8 harris
I had no prior business with Emily when I call about moving to the Clarkston area. Within days she showed me various listing. Emily showed me a home the day it went on the market, which I purchased. By submitting an offer before the home became widely shown enabled me to beat any competition for the home.
— Joel L.
Emily was great to work with, even during a very busy "seller's market" period where homes were off the market in a matter of hours she was always able to get showing promptly. Her knowledge and advice were excellent for the Orion Charter, Independence and Brandon twp areas we were looking in. We were well informed throughout the closing process and are very happy with our home!
— user685797301
My wife and I were very pleased with our home buying experience with Emily. She is very professional, honest, and non-biased. She does a good job at representing her client's interests. Her responses and interactions with us were so prompt that we felt like we were her only client. She went above and beyond to ensure that our transaction went as smoothly as possible and gave good recommendations when things came up. We would definitely do business with her again.
— Jim S.
Had a wonderful experience with Emily and would definitely recommend her or use her again! We had been working with a different realtor for over a year, and was unhappy with the relationship and unsuccessful attempts at finding a new home so we switched to Emily. I'm happy that we did, Emily sold our house within 3 days and helped find our dream home before it even went to market! She's organized, was always available and very knowledgeable about the Clarkston market.
— Stephanie M.
Emily knows the market well. She is always prompt with responding to questions/concerns day or night. She has great attention to detail and always a professional. Would highly recommend.
— Lisa O.
Emily was very fair, honest, and took care of all the details of the process. We lived in our home for several years and we were in need of education regarding procedures and process. Her expertise was extremely helpful.
— Chris H.
Emily will go above and beyond in every aspect. She didn't try to get us to "buy a house", but instead facilitated in helping us find our "new home". She is extremely knowledgeable. If you want an elite partner in this quest, she will not disappoint!
— April L.
There are not enough stars available to rate Emily; she was the best real estate agent ever! Sold our home in one week! We had listed with two other realtors in the year prior to listing with Emily; neither of the other two agents produced results. Emily was remarkable, totally responsive, excellent knowledge of the real estate market. We cannot stress too much the confidence we had in dealing with her! Follow-up as great as well. Emily, in our eyes, you ARE the best real estate agent in Michigan.
— Jan T.
Emily was such a pleasure to work with. She was our realtor when we sold our house. She is very knowledgeable about the local market and also has connections with many local realtors, which is helpful. My favorite thing about working with Emily was how responsive she was throughout the process. She was also our advocate and helped us to make the best decision when it came to selling our house.
— Kara D.
Emily is an extremely hard working agent she won't stop until the job is complete we have used her for 2 home purchases and 1 sale I would use her again in a heartbeat.
— Eric M.
Throughout our 7 months of house searching, Emily was THE best. She was patient and so helpful when it came to finding our dream house. She also sold our house in 24 hours at full asking price! Her knowledge of the area and market make her a top realtor. She is so responsive (late night, early morning, weekend, whenever!) and always has the best suggestions. Emily truly had OUR best interest at heart in finding a house. She is simply the greatest at what she does and we couldn't recommend her any more highly!
— Elyse R.
I have bought and sold 2 homes with Emily and each time was a great experience. Both of my homes sold within 6 days of going on the market! Her knowledge of the area and feel for what the real estate market is doing makes her highly effective in getting homes bought and sold. Emily makes everything in the process easy, and is always available.
— Robert N.
Emily looked at my property and told me exactly what I needed to do to get the best price, I followed her instructions and got the price that I wanted. Emily was very professional and quick to respond. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!
— Genevieve P.
Emily was referred by a neighbor and was the smartest decision I made. She made the whole process painless from initial interview to closing day and beyond. Emily takes great care to protect your home during your absents, keeping you in the loop okaying showing and inspection times. Making sure you receive feedback from all showings. If you are looking to sell your home, the choice is clear, Emily Ford. She is the best!
— Bob
Emily was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was extremely knowledgeable of the local market and was able to hone in very quickly on they types of properties my wife and I liked. Throughout the entire journey to find our home Emily was ultra-responsive and did a phenomenal job in negotiating for us. We'd go with her again in a heartbeat!!
— Leland W.
We relocated to Ohio from Michigan 5 years ago and had been renting our Michigan home out ever since. When we finally decided to sell our home we found Emily on Zillow and are so glad we did! Since we are in Ohio everything was done remotely via calls, emails, texts. Emily was very responsive and worked directly with our current tenants to set up showings etc. She is very professional and was a pleasure to work with!
— Matt M.
