151 Finale Terrace
Silver Spring, MD 20901

Emily (Lurie) sold my home and found a new one for us to purchase. She made finding a new home easy by sending me only listing that met my criteria. I didn’t have to waste time wading through unsuitable listings. She always responded promptly to my emails and patiently answered all of my questions. When she listed my home, the photographs for the listing were beautifully done and her staging made the photos stand out. My home sold within a week of listing. She found the service providers to do repairs and other work necessary to complete the sale of my home. The work was done well and all of the services were reasonably priced. She solved every problem that came up and made the selling and buying process much less stressful. She looked out for my best interest and was a great advocate.

Emily is a True Gem Among Real Estate Agents

Equal parts kind, patient, and knowledgeable, Emily is a true gem among real estate agents who genuinely cares about her clients and enjoys seeing them make the transition from house hunter to homeowner. Not only did Emily help me identify the right home, but she also helped me avoid a few bad apples along the way ‐‐ one of which, if not for Emily’s keen eye for detail, could have cost me a small fortune from being on the hook for a hidden long‐term commitment.

“Your Advice and Efforts Were Huge”

Barbara and Mel were outstanding for us.

They spent years (literally) showing us innumerable homes until we found the perfect home for us. They never pressured us to buy anything, and seemed perfectly happy to wait as long as it took. They gave us outstanding advice on pricing, areas, characteristics of homes. When we found the perfect house for us, they moved quickly and got us the house despite significant interest from many families, and somehow managed to negotiate a price less than we thought possible. They were pleasant, friendly, professional throughout. They answered a million of our questions and made us feel comfortable through the whole process.


We could not have had a better experience.

Yisroel and Kimberly Brumer


Appreciate your Advice, Guidance, and Support

Dear Barbara,
We would like to thank you for all of your help in ensuring that our first home buying experience was both smooth and positive. We really appreciate your advice, guidance, and support throughout the entire process. Buying a home for the first time can be very stressful, and we really appreciate everything that you did to make the process more manageable.

Thanks again, Bonnie and Yitz

Emily Helps the Paleys Move to Leisure World

Dear Emily,
We want to sincerely thank you for representing us a buyers of a  condo.
You were always prompt, and very responsive to our calls and emails.
We certainly were difficult  buyer clients.
First we wanted the condo, then changed our minds. Then we wanted to see another condo.The second condo we saw was the one we wanted, so we thought.
Trying we were, but you remained calm, and very positive.  You  lead us to and from the various condos until we finally found the right one, which was the first one we saw.
We highly speak for you to others.

Best always,
The Paleys (Rae & Lou)


Helped Renter Coming from Japan

About Ms. Emily Lurie:

I was very happy and lucky to have an agent like Emily to help me find a home to rent in Montgomery County. I just came from Japan and had almost no knowledge about the leasing market in the Bethesda area. Looking around at several houses with Emily, I gradually learned about the market and figured out the most suitable location for me. She also completely understood what we were looking for and what the conditions were. She was unique in that she has experience helping families from other countries and helped guide me through the process. I was impressed with her because I could express my tiny concerns and silly requests without any hesitance. She could understand my thoughts almost perfectly and worked on my behalf.

When we signed the lease together, she carefully looked at the lease and explained everything to me. She raised issued with the landlord that were not in my best interest and she successfully revised them for me. I could trust her professionalism, and now I’m very satisfied with my decision to have her assist me. Living in this house is an ideal place for my family, and I can say so even after living here for a month. Thanks to Emily and for her support, and I look forward to working with her again.

Best regards,  Norihiro Suzaki, Deputy General Manager Hitachi Corporation, Japan


You Closed an Impossible Deal

Dear Emily,
Thank you for providing us an opportunity to comment on your realty services. We can’t thank you enough for the sleepless nights you spent closing an “impossible” home for us. The purchase of the Good Hope Road property would have impossible for anyone to accomplish. I was amazed how you plowed down brick walls and wouldn’t take “no” as an answer when the bank owners did not want to cooperate. When I heard that you close all of your deals, that was no joke. Additionally, you were so helpful in the working the finance piece of the purchase and looking for creative ways for savvy financing. Amazing work! Your tenacity and self-drive for your business is refreshing. I proudly pass your name around for my friends in the market. Thank you for an outstanding buying experience.
All the Best, Stephen & Rita Herring
