Living in Taiwan and looking to buy a place for our son to live in when he was still at NYU did not come without challenges. But Emma made it an absolute pleasure and is a true professional. We couldn’t have achieved what we did without her.— Paul & Linda Fang, Buyer
If there were ever a Renaissance real estate broker, Emma Hamilton Malina would be the poster child for the industry. A thorough and analytical thinker with the rare combination of work and life skills that make true competence and pragmatic application possible, Emma is a resourceful and creative agent whose love of real estate stems from a long family history of landowners, developers, investors and preservationists around the world. Born in Santa Barbara, raised in London, and a New York City real estate broker for over 6 years, Emma has always stood out from the crowd - the result of hard work, creativity and natural people skills coupled with a storied history that began when she started working full-time at the age of fifteen.
As New York City’s second ever Certified Eco-Broker, Emma specializes in residential sales in both Manhattan and Brooklyn and is equally well versed in the co-op and condo market as she is in dealing with townhouse representation and purchases. Having a home base in Brooklyn and an office in Manhattan allows her to maintain an equally strong pulse on both markets and an expansive breadth of knowledge. She compares the role she plays for her clients to that of a project manager - a distinction that makes her a great broker, instead of just a good one. Her clients constantly praise her for her willingness to go above and beyond noting that she is extremely proactive and creative. She believes it is often the little things that can make the greatest impact, so whether it's a tiny studio or a multi-million-dollar home, she goes the extra mile to ensure the property has reached its full potential.
Emma lives in a converted manufacturing building in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn with her husband, an award winning product designer from Switzerland, and their young daughter. Her family travels regularly between Santa Barbara, London and Zurich and are total foodies – lapping up the offerings of all the glorious purveyors throughout BoCoCa. A homeowner herself since 2003, Emma fully understands the need to feel that “this is the one” moment when you walk through the door, and would never try to sell a client on something that doesn’t feel natural. She truly loves helping people find their way home and that love is acutely felt the moment you meet her.
Resourceful, creative, compassionate and extremely thorough; simply put, Emma is the person you want alongside you as you tread the waters of buying or selling your home.
