Property Sales Representative
What I love about real estate is – it is all about people. I feel privileged when clients trust me to exceed in selling their assets and deliver results that exceed their expectations.
Over the past 4 years I have sold properties in many suburbs but my focus and experience is around the Southern Beaches area. I have a qualified database of active and passive buyers who I keep in contact with regularly, I understand their needs and what they are looking for.
I am Down-to-earth, energetic, and creative, providing my clients with clever sales strategies to deliver market-leading prices for both residential and commercial sales. I have an ability to make my clients feel right at home and in the very best of hands. Honest and upfront, my in-depth knowledge, negotiating expertise and unique marketing skills are an asset to every sale.
One on my secrets to success is understanding exactly what motivates a vendor to sell their property and how they would like to structure a campaign. This skill of listening also translates to my communication with my vendors and sellers.
I have lived in the Southern Beaches area all my life, attending the local Dodges Ferry Primary School until 2007, then attending high school. I purchased my first home in 2016 on Carlton Beach Road, where I live with my partner Jake and dog Kosmo.
I love living close to the beach and spend most weekends on or in the water (when not selling properties).
Living in a small local community provides a sense of security and comfort where most people know each other and look out for one another.
From growing relationships and trusted clients within the community, I am known for my bubbly personality, ability to get the best outcome for my clients, it is not just a transaction for me. It is much more.
I am driven to provide all my clients the best quality personalised service and advice available.
" Very efficient. "
Donna and Emily were very professional and attentive. They handled the sale of my property with a great deal of efficiency and were always very open about the process and easy to contact.
" Unforgettable "
Donna and Emily sold our home within 4 days. They went above and beyond our expectations. They are professional, positive and were the perfect duo to sell our home, and we will be forever grateful for their expertise and knowledge. Their knowledge of the area, rapport they have within the community honestly in my opinion gave us our best price and also selling quickly (not that we needed to). Plus they have to be the funnest agents I have ever met, we will always think of them in our future purchases and sales. Thank you Rachael & Wayne
" Incredible experience. "
From first contact with Donna the entire experience has been exceptional. Donna made the entire process simple and efficient and ensured I felt supported and updated through the whole transaction. Her knowledge of buildings and structures, renovations, the market place and local community was excellent. Her professionalism was exceptional and she made herself available to fit around my busy schedule. Donna and Emily both made sure I felt supported and informed and their teamwork was admirable. I highly recommend Donna and Emily and would trust them with any future real estate needs!
" Professional, helpful and focused. "
I needed guidance in order to feel confident making my offer and signing a contract on my way home from viewing the vacant lot for sale through Kate Storey Realty. Emily was ready for my arrival with the contract details all in place, awaiting my offer. She talked me through the contract making sure that I was comfortable with everything. When I questioned any issue she gave a clear and professional response, including checking the online planning website to confirm exact wording and information pertinent to the land for sale. In this way, Emily won my confidence through her professionalism, helpful and focused approach. The outcome was what I had hoped for and the Vendor and I were both comfortable and happy. The whole process was amicable and sincere. I will seek out Emily in the future if/whenever buying or selling. I highly recommend her to both vendors and buyers.
" Outstanding "
Emily provided exceptional quality service. Her guidance, advice and support throughout the process was invaluable. Always positive and friendly, Emily was genuinely interested and helpful with regards to our situation. Further, she is very knowledgeable about the southern beaches area. I would highly recommend Emily to all.

Emily was an awesome agent! She always answered her phone and replied to emails swiftly. She had a really good understanding of the local market and I would use her again the next time I buy a home. Highly recommended!
" So great to work with, like a friend helping you through "
Emily was such a pleasure to work with. She was always so helpful and friendly. She was there opening homes on day 1 when we had no idea what we were looking at, and was happy to answer all our silly questions. And she was right there up until we settled on our first home and beyond! Would highly recommend her, she was always so good at looking after both the vendor selling the property as well as us as the purchasers.
" Excellent! "
Emily went above and beyond helping us sell our house. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the local house market. Her communication through the process was fantastic and she was a real pleasure to deal with. We sold from interstate and she helped organise everything and made sure the process all went smoothly. We had a few issues with our buyers and she was a massive help in sorting it out and making sure it was resolved. I would highly recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a house in her area.

" Honest, efficient and very professional "
Emily negotiated the sale of my property brilliantly. She wasted no time putting together a well detailed property listing that looked amazing. I felt fully informed on the sales process, and was pleasantly surprised to receive multiple offers well above the property valuation within less than a week. No pressure. No stress. No fuss. Just good old fashioned hard work from an agent with excellent sales skills who really knows her area.

" The best real estate agent in Tasmania! "
Emily is a miracle worker! This is the second property I have sold with Emily. She is such a hard worker and really goes above and beyond to exceed expectations. Emily has such a friendly and approachable nature and is extremely knowledgeable, particularly in the South East region. Emily managed to get a contract on my property during the peak of the covid-19 crisis. I would not hesitate to recommend Emily and the team at Kate Storey.

" Wonderful Experience "
Emily made selling my first home a very easy process. Her knowledge, professionalism and communication skills are outstanding. Emily is dedicated, responsive and very approachable. I would not hesitate to recommend Emily!
" Enjoyed dealing with Emily "
Purchased a property through Emily and was impressed with her friendly unpushy demeanor. I'd looked at the property several times before the price came down to an amount I considered acceptable. Although Emily contacted me several times it was just to gauge my interest and was not pushy in her sales tactics in any way, which I have experienced with other agents before. Throughout the purchase Emily was always helpful and ready to answer any questions I had regarding the process and also liaise with the vendor for me regarding information about the property structures/pipework etc. Would not hesitate to deal with Emily again and wish her all the best for her Real Estate career.
" Great communication when purchasing property "
Emily was very professional, quick to respond to requests and kept me updated throughout the buying process. I would highly recommend Emily to buy from or sell your next home in Tasmania.

Could not have asked for a more professional team to sell our first ever home. Emily and Donna went above and beyond to work around our busy schedule, Both have great local knowledge and knew exactly how to sell our home, We will never go to anyone else when it comes time to buy or sell another house in the future and recommend highly.

" Fantastic Emily Collins "
Emily was always courteous as well as easily accommodating to assist me in the sale of my house. Emily was always helpful and hard working and nothing was too much of an effort for her. I would recommend Emily to anyone that is selling there home.
" PROFESSIONAL, PROFESSIONAL, PROFESSIONAL!! "
We interviewed 3 local agents: Emily was the only agent who came 'prepared', hence, our choice was made easy. Emily went through the process of selling in fine detail before signing her as our agent and after signing informed us she had 2 buyers who were looking for a property like ours. That same afternoon (Friday 13th can be 'Lucky') Emily phoned to say she would like to bring one of the buyers through the next day (Saturday). By the Monday Emily had an offer for us which was accepted after we worked out a settlement date: we were waiting on the completion of our new build. Throughout the process Emily kept in touch with us and the purchaser in the most professional and friendly way I have ever come across in nearly 50 years of buying and selling our properties. We have no hesitation in recommending Emily to anyone looking for a great agent and we personally thank her and wish her well in her chosen career.
" Enthusiastic "
I'm sure any seller or buyer would immediately be impressed with Emily's enthusiasm, positivity and sparky personality. She is also passionate about the Dodges Ferry/Carlton area, which has to be infectious when looking to buy in the community. Her professionalism and team work also made dealing with her seamless. And together with Donna sold my property within a week of listing after I took it out of the hands of another real estate agent.
" I highly recommend Emily Collins "
From the start Emily was great to deal with. As we were buyers from interstate, Emily went above and beyond to help us and provide us with all the extra information we required. She was always highly professional and friendly and she has great knowledge of the local area. She made the whole buying process easy and I would highly recommend her.
" Best experience ever with a Real Estate agent. "
Emily was very professional and her knowledge of our area was fantastic. Emily's enthusiasm, professionalism and honesty was something we have never experienced before when dealing with an agent. We are very happy we chose Emily to sell our property and we will definitely use her again when we purchase our next property.
" Emily was great to deal with. Good follow up and got my property sold. "
Good experience with the sale.
" Great Agent! "
Emily is an excellent agent and a pleasure to do business with. She is experienced and knowledgeable, but perhaps more importantly she makes the process personal and enjoyable. Highly recommend.
" Emily made the process of buying a house EASY! "
Emily was easy to contact and always kept me updated and informed. For someone that doesn't know much about buying property Emily was able to "dumb it down enough" so that I understood each aspect of the buy. Thank you so much for all your help Emily!! Will definitely be referring you to others.
" Sold house in Sorell! "
From the outset, Emily was polite, listened to our needs and carried out our instructions perfectly. She was professional and friendly . Would highly recommend Emily for an agent in the future.
" Emily has been fantastic! "
This has been our third experience either buying, selling or appraising with Emily Collins. Professional, excitable and client focused, Emily has got the job done to an excellent standard. We would have little hesitation in recommending her to anyone looking to buy, sell or looking to have their property valued.
" Well done:) "
Emily was friendly, efficient and reliable. Emily was well informed on her market and area. She communicated well and did not over sell the property. I have recommended her and Kate Storey to several friends thinking of selling in the area.
