"We feel so fortunate to have worked with Emma. She helped us find our dream home and sell our condo at the same time during a challenging market. We can say so many great things about her -- but the most important is that we felt that we could always trust her to act in our best interest. She is available, knowledgeable, ethical, strategic, and she even doubled as an interior designer with expert advice as we were staging our old home and considering furniture for our new home. She consistently goes above and beyond what is expected. We can't recommend her highly enough."

"I am so lucky to have Emma as my Realtor. She is very professional, resourceful and thoughtful. As a first-time buyer, I was not familiar with the purchase process. Emma helped me every step. She is always approachable and responds to my texts and emails quickly. She also gave me a lot of advice based on my needs. I would strongly recommend Emma."

"We would give Emma Kruskal 10 stars if we could! She worked with us as we downsized to sell a large Brookline Victorian and buy a Jamaica Plain condo, as well as buy an investment unit. Emma brings an amazing intuition to both the selling and buying sides of the process. She is thoughtful, direct, and thorough. She’s a brilliant strategist and a strong, savvy negotiator, all the while maintaining impeccable integrity.
“She taught us a lot about this process with patience and humor. (Real estate transactions have changed a lot in the last few years!) She answered our many questions and gave us the opportunity to be active participants. Our house sold above asking price after only five days on the market. Emma’s recommendation to list earlier than we’d planned to was a strong factor in this success. We took her advice on how to best position our offer on the condo and won the bid over twenty other prospective buyers. With her knowledge of the market, her incredible work ethic, and her ability to read the nuances of a sale, we highly recommend Emma Kruskal as your best choice for buying or selling in the Brookline area!"

"Selling your house or condo? Hire Emma Kruskal as your agent! Emma worked with me to sell my Brookline condo and she was superb. She was focused and engaged from the beginning. She is very knowledgeable about the market and extremely helpful in the essential work of preparing the property for sale. Her advice was spot on and she Is excellent at strategizing throughout the entire process from prepping and staging through listing, open house and negotiating with potential buyers. Emma is a thorough professional, a spectacular real estate agent, and an extremely impressive person. I give her my highest recommendation."

"Emma is the best. She has gone above and beyond to help me both sell my home and find the next one. Emma's #1 concern is her client and having someone like that in your corner is invaluable. I would highly recommend her to anyone and plan on working with her again in the future."
-- Justin Z., December 2018
"Simply put, Emma is amazing. By far the best real estate agent my husband and I have ever worked with. My husband and I are both busy Boston physicians juggling the chaos of 3 little kids. Emma worked tirelessly (days, nights, evenings) to help us find our dream home on a tight schedule. She very quickly learned exactly what we were looking for (even before we truly understood what we were looking for ourselves) and went to early open houses to evaluate what homes were worth our time.
“She truly has a talent for getting to know her client. Most of all, Emma is a kind, smart, lovely person. The kind of person that you would want to share your dreams of your future home. We honestly looked forward to spending our weekends with her, despite the stress of evaluating houses. Our kids absolutely love her (she even bought each child a special toy on our closing day). She is honest, she is thoughtful, and she can also be a fierce negotiator and savvy strategist when it comes time to fight for a price and conditions. She successfully negotiated our house $30,000 less than asking price in an aggressive sellers’ market (most other homes were going way above asking). Emma was truly one of the greatest parts of this stressful experience and we feel honored to have worked with her."

"Emma provides impeccable expertise with comfortable professionalism; she sincerely cares and that comes through in everything she does, which made for a fun and rewarding experience in selling my home. Emma knew the right way to get the best results, and she did it fast. In just a couple of weeks we sold my condo unit at the highest price ever offered in the building for a comparable unit.. I would highly recommend Emma; I think she's the absolute best at what she does and cares the most about her clients."
--Jeanne H., April 2018
"Emma Kruskal is beyond a doubt, in our humble opinion, the one to use. She is professional, polite, and punctual. Emma has a sharp instinct and deep knowledge of Brookline and surrounding areas (where we looked). I am sure you could not do better than Emma.”
-- Mark G., January 2018
"My husband and I very much enjoyed working with Emma as she handled the sale of our home. From the introduction of the marketing strategy to the actual (and quick) sale of our home, she was professional, patient, understanding, knowledgeable, and accessible. Whenever we reached out to her with a question, she responded promptly. We appreciated that she allowed us room to breathe as we pondered a life-changing move, and she was great at keeping lines of communication open between us and the buyer. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
-- Barbara P. and Tom M., September 2017
“Emma was thoughtful, reliable, kind, and patient throughout my home buying process. She listened carefully to my wants and needs in a respectful way, and led me through the learning curve of being a new home buyer with great care. I appreciated the way she thought outside the box, presented me with many options, and took the time to get to know me. I really enjoyed working with her, and recommend her highly!”
