About Emma
As the top sales agent in Corcoran's Bed Stuy office, Emma's interest in real estate began when she started looking for an apartment for herself and her family. She had lived in the Village for her first eight years in NYC, but after her first child was born, "320 square feet wasn't going to cut it." In her search for a larger space, she quickly realized that Brooklyn was where she should be. In 2002, Emma bought one of the first condos on Washington Avenue, then two years later she bought a completely derelict townhouse in Bedford Stuyvesant and managed a total gut renovation that included supervising seven subcontractors, designing floor plans, and changing the CO of her multifamily building. Over the past 18 years, Emma has herself been a buyer, a seller, a landlord, and an Airbnb host and is extremely conversant in all aspects of townhouse living. Since beginning her career in real estate, Emma’s expertise with townhouses has become invaluable and townhouse sales now account for the a large proportion of her business.

Clients share praise for Emma James.

...signing with Emma may have been the single best decision we ever made. Emma's knowledge of the Brooklyn market, in combination with, her first-hand experience of gut-renovating her own brownstone provided us with amazing insight & advice during our own search...Her approach is frank, yet supportive, & she really listens to her client's needs...I would recommend Emma as an outstanding broker!

Emily Flynn

I found a true confidant & partner in Emma. She was equally dedicated to finding the right place for myself & family, as she was to selling our previous place to buyers I would have hand picked. Emma was always available for a phone call, text or email. Emma is a powerhouse and I highly recommend her!
