Susan Emerson Real Estate


With several years of real estate experience and many satisfied clients, I am committed to customer satisfaction and high quality personalized service in today’s challenging and ever changing real estate market.

Early on in my real estate career I realized how much I enjoy working with and getting to know seniors in our community. That is why I decided to become a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES).

Many of us face the reality of aging parents and their changing needs. Whether moving into senior housing, assisted living or staying in their home, this can be a challenging time. This is where my expertise can help seniors and their families navigate the maze of financial, legal and emotional issues that accompany the sale of the home. 

I draw upon the expertise of a network of senior specialists, such as a senior financial planner, eldercare lawyer, and rightsizing company and I am familiar with local community resources and services.  My mission is to help seniors and their families by taking the stress and worry off your shoulders and putting the pieces together for you.

what customers say

  • Many THANKS to Susan Emerson! We recently closed escrow on my parents home in Claremont. As I live in Fresno, it was a stressful time in readying the house to go on the market. Susan was a terrific help! She closely monitored all aspects, without my having to drive back and forth between So. CA and Fresno. The number of trips she saved me from having to make, is truly appreciated! The professionalism she exhibited through the entire process was huge. Her ability in scheduling the necessary people/companies to do repairs, improvements, inspections, etc was point on. There was never a doubt that things wouldn’t get completed as required! I can honestly say she was the best realtor we’ve ever used, and we have been through a number of transactions in 35 years of marriage. If you are looking for an individual to take you through your real estate transaction, from start to finish, as seamlessly as possible, call Susan.

  • “Susan shopped with us for a year, showing us multiple homes every week. We were being so picky but she never got impatient with us, and we finally found the perfect home that had everything we wanted and was well within our budget. She managed the escrow well and fought hard for us to get the sellers to make needed improvements for us. I would happily recommend her!.”

    Shaena W
  • “You cannot find a better Agent than Susan Emerson. I have worked with her on 3 RE transactions thus far and she will be the ONLY agent I use! She is diligent, enthusiastic, trustworthy, caring and has the best follow-through. Your best interests are secure in the hands of Susan Emerson.”

    Nanci Beas
  • “She was professional, friendly, organized, prepared, and always available to us … a down-to-earth person who is a complete professional to guide you through the potentially stressful experience of buying or selling a home.”

    Mike & Cynthia
  • “It meant so much to us to have a Realtor we could trust. We felt, at all times, like our home was safe in her hands and we are so grateful that she went the extra mile (or two … or ten) to help us whenever possible and sometimes even when it seem impossible!”

    Joan & Dave
  • “Susan made helpful suggestions for enhancing the potential of my house and sheperded me through the whole process with enthusiasm and unflagging energy.”

    Carol P
  • “When she found the right one, she called and said that she was standing in our house – and she was! There’s no pressure and that is appreciated while we consider our options. Susan has great energy while also providing patience.”

Early on in my real estate career I realized how much I enjoyed working with and getting to know seniors in my community. After dealing with uncertainty and lack of information when it came to my own parent’s move I realized there must be many others facing the same challenges and issues. That is why I chose to become a Seniors Real Estate Specialist. I completed specialized training in order to ensure a smooth home sale process for seniors and their families facing these later-in-life situations.

Most of us will face the reality of aging parents and their changing needs. The financial and emotional issues involved in a move can be stressful for any family. Without the proper information this process can become overwhelming for everyone involved.

When faced with having to make a move, many people don’t know where to start in developing a plan, how to locate local resources needed to assist with the transition and most importantly, where they can receive emotional support. My job is not just about selling a home, but as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist, I am a resource to my clients. I am there to help take care of the intricate details, to eliminate some of the worries, and to help develop a plan together with my client to help the move go as smooth as possible.
