    Emily was amazing to work with. She was recommended by another agent and we called her very last minute while driving down to take a look around Edenton to get more information. Even in this busy real estate market, she came to meet us immediately and was able to show us houses that day! She was super organized and took care of almost everything. She had great recommendations on local contractors and insurance people and had the experience to help us negotiate a fair purchase price and get all of our due diligence take care of. Emily made what could have been a difficult process drama-free and easy. We highly recommend her!

    Couldn't be happier with Emily's work as our realtor. She was very responsive, had great input and advice, looked out for our best interests, and worked with all parties to ensure that our closing was smooth and timely. I recommend her without reservation.

    Emily got our house under contract quickly and for a good price. Due to COVID the closing for our property took almost 9 months but Emily kept on top of it the entire time. We are so glad we had her to make this difficult time a little less crazy.

    Emily was the first real estate agent to reach out to us when we began the search for our retirement house in North Carolina. She provided immediate responses to our questions via text or email. Her flexibility was awesome as there were only certain times we could travel to look at houses. She did several virtual home tours with us as well, even postponing her vacation plans by a couple of hours to do virtual showings with us. Emily walked us through every step of the home-buying process, including setting us up with our lender, lawyer, and insurance agent. I would highly recommend Emily to anyone looking to buy a home in her area.

    I highly recommend working with Emily! She was always honest with us, let us know what to look for in a home at the beach and made sure she executed our wishes. She was honest about the process and the homes and valued our thoughts above everything else. She helped us get into our home and we could not be happier. Thank you always! Reach out to Emily ASAP to help with buying or selling your home!

    Emily's professionalism and willingness to please her customers really stood out to us in our recent home purchase. Her communication was fantastic. She took the time to call, answer emails and texts at all hours to help us. I recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their house. Thank you Emily for being there every step of the way!!

    Emily was very helpful in our home buying process as first time home buyers. She was very attentive/responsive as through COVID-19 obstacles and helped us to close in a timely fashion. She was equipped with a lot of information and seemed to know what she was doing. Thank you Emily!

    We really appreciated how she kept in touch with us during the course of the sale. During the time it was on the market she appeared to take all steps necessary to get the house viewed. She was patient, informative, honest, and always, always positive.

    I highly recommend working with Emily for all your real estate needs!!! Emily was dedicated to making sure everything went as smooth as possible and provided helpful knowledge along the way. Emily's attention to detail and overall concern for my transaction was felt at every step. Her communication and sense of urgency are unlike many other realtors I've used in the past.

    Emily is an absolute joy to work with! She is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and goes above and beyond what is expected. I only regret that our home sale was for the purpose of relocating out of state because I would absolutely work with her again if given the chance. I highly recommend Emily to anyone who is looking for an agent who will be honest, thorough, flexible, and kind.

    We first spoke with Emily on the phone and then met her at a restaurant near the NC/VA border. At that time, we discussed what we were looking for and she also brought paperwork in folders with descriptions and locations of properties available to look at that day. We also received file folders of what we should expect of a real estate agent in NC and how the house buying process works. She answered questions. So starting from day one, she showed professionalism, attention to detail and communication skills. One can tell she has decent local knowledge, but does not blab. She usually offered when it related to a property you are viewing and thought it might be useful. For example, "this one looks like it needs flood insurance because of the area." Or, " a mortgage bank may want the floor fixed on this one first." Maybe that is not specifically local knowledge but it saves $$'s to know how to approach things. For responsiveness, she was quick to help where she could after we made an offer. Had a problem converting docs to PDF's for a while. She would convert and send it in for us. She would also follow-up. That is responsiveness. Regarding the three strengths not checked below, Trustworthiness, dedication, and negotiating skills, Never once did I get a reason NOT to trust her or feel she was not dedicated. Negotiating skills were (in my opinion) not a major part or need of our house purchase so it was not relevant. Overall, a five out of five.

    Emily was a joy to work with. She took the time to listen and understand exactly what we were looking for and only showed us homes within the price range we gave her. I would highly recommend Emily as a knowledgeable realtor.

    Emily has been absolutely wonderful to work with. She is very astute in her abilities as a realtor. My wife and I have only great words to say about our transaction of Marketing and then selling our beach home. We are glad we chose her and would use her expertise in the future if needed.

    Mary & Ed gave Emily 5 stars out of 5
    We feel so fortunate to have had Emily helping us throughout the entire home buying process. The day we met we looked at all of the homes on our list and thought the day was over. She asked if we had anymore we would like to see. We had no idea that she could and would spend the afternoon with us. She got us in the homes in the afternoon and we found the one we wanted. She has an eagle eye when it comes to viewing homes and spotted many things that we missed. She is so professional and helpful and obviously experienced. When we were filling out the offer, she could explain the process and each document at a glance. We were very nervous about what we were embarking on and Emily made us feel at ease. There are no stupid questions as far as she is concerned. She treated us with so much respect and kindness. She helped us with finding the right people to help all along the way. She has gone above and beyond our expectations and we wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone shopping for realestate at OBX.

    Emily was awesome. She assisted me in finding a home for my Parents. She first walked me through houses and the. Walked through them again with my parents. She even drove all the way to show my mom the house again after we made a offer so that she could think about furniture placement. Emily was always one step ahead with insurance information and even got the numbers for the utilities. Always friendly and easy to talk too.

    I can't speak highly enough about Emily. From day one, Emily has been a pleasure to work with. She is always timely with her communications and responses, punctual and on time for appointments, always ahead of the curve when it comes to sharing listings with us that meet our criteria, before they're made available on websites such as Zillow and the like. She's always goes out of her way to meet our requests for showings or to seek out other information about a property. Through her work ethic and dedication to find a house that meets our needs, she consistently makes us feel as though we are a priority despite having been driving all day to assist other clients. In a nutshell, if you're looking for a realtor who is willing to go the distance and out of their way to help you find that perfect home, then look no further than Emily Bray. We're lucky to have her.

    Emily has been absolutely amazing in our search for our retirement cottage. Anytime of the day or NIGHT, she answered all our questions and concerns. She took the time to make videos of properties we couldn't personally see. She pays very close attention to details and expresses concerns if needed. She was there for us, even when we drove down on a whim, she made time to show us homes we were interested in. We were more than fortunate to have her by our side while cottage hunting. We could never thank her enough!

    Emily is the gold standard of agent excellence. We came down last year on vacation and were introduced to Emily by the owner of the house we rented. She made herself available promptly and came very prepared. Not only did she arrange a showing for the house we wanted to see, but also located two other properties to show us that day. We did not find anything at that time, but Emily sent us walkthrough videos of properties until we found the house that we ended up purchasing. She is very knowledgeable about the market, understands building codes and gave us great advice at every turn. We have bought several houses and this is the first time we've had an agent that added real value. We really appreciated her dedication and follow through!!!

    We just clsed on our first home! Emily is our real estate agent, she helped tremendously! Not only was she always available to look at the 10 houses i liked, but always answers and returns my calls. She was so informative, we closed with a warranty on our home. I recommend Emily and will use her again!!

    Emily is not only a great realtor but a great person as well. Super helpful, prompt, and always able to answer any questions throughout the entire process. Due to the urgency in my situation we looked at many homes in a short amount of time and Emily did not flinch. My third home purchase but definitely the easiest.

    We had a great experience working with Emily. I couldn't believe how responsive she was to all of our requests and questions, and she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of buying a home. She was always very well prepared. We will definitely use her in the future.

    In the beginning, I hated that the fact that Emily had to travel so far to help us, as I was unaware of her location at the time. However, she insisted that it was not a problem. She found and showed us several properties within our budget in the areas we were looking in. She was always extremely polite, friendly, courteous, professional. Our loan process took 2 long months, Emily was there every step of the way, rooting us on, helping us to stay positive when things sometimes looked bleak. She listened to me vent, without judgement, telling me that everything was going to be ok. Turns out she was right!! I would not give a second thought to recommending Emily to anyone! She's the best!

    I would strongly recommend Emily as a real estate agent. She is professional, extremely responsible and her communication skills are second to none! She did a good job in showing us the home and in several situations along the way to us acquiring information about the Outer Banks home (which can be complicated) Emily made certain the right information was accurately provided. Thank you Emily!!!

    Upon entering the Coldwell Banker Reality Office without an appointment, Emily greeted us with a warm welcome and was ready to assist us in looking for property in the area. After giving her a description of what we were looking for, along with some properties we had discovered online she put together a schedule for us to begin looking at property. Keeping our budget and desires in mind she showed us a variety of opportunities for purchase. Spending a great deal of her time and attention to meet our needs I would not hesitate to contact Emily for future buying or selling needs. She even directed us to a local restaurant where we had the best fried clams ever. Emily is professional, while being down to earth, honest, and has a great sense of humor. When we did not find property to meet our needs Emily contacted another agent in the area where we were headed and explained what we were looking for. The new agent immediately began searching properties to fit our criteria. The teamwork at Coldwell Banker Reality lead us to the property we've dreamed of.

    Emily possesses all the strengths of an excellent Real Estate Agent. Working closely with her, it became obvious quickly that her knowledge was in-depth and her professionalism was perfect. She established a rapport quickly and was eager to learn what I as her client desired and how she could make that happen. She did so using information about properties that I loved and others that I was not so enamored with. It was all about client satisfaction. She worked hard to please us and was swift and knowledgeable with paperwork, I can't recommend Emily highly enough!!!

    Emily is a former coworker of mine, and she was always diligent in her work and very maticulous. She has a great eye for detail. When it was time for me to look for my first home, she was the first person I sought advice from. She put me in contact with an awesome realtor and went along to view homes with me. She was honest and thoughtful with her advice. I always knew I was getting a straight-up, well thought evaluation of the homes I viewed. Emily does her homework and shoots straight.

    What is the Sound Side of the Outer Banks?
    If you're thinking about relocating to the area or purchasing an investment property, you may be wondering about some of the features that make the Outer Banks so unique. One feature that makes us different than other beaches on the East Coast is that we're surrounded by water instead of just having an ocean coastline.
