Broker Associate

Home buyers can count on Callie to help make purchasing a Traditional, Bank Owned or Short Sale property as easy as possible.  Sellers can be assured that Callie will be there for them every step of the way to make marketing, negotiating offers and the escrow process as smooth as possible.

Callie obtained her Broker license in 2013 but has been a licensed Real Estate agent since 2008. She also maintains Real Estate Designations as a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) as well as Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES). Starting out as a Transaction Facilitator for a small boutique brokerage in El Dorado Hills, she gained direct and extensive knowledge of all aspects of the real estate transaction. Working on the back end of various real estate transactions, she proved herself very thorough and efficient in working with agents, lenders, clients and banks all while managing the necessary paperwork.

Since obtaining her real estate license she has successfully assisted buyers and sellers in traditional, short sale, and bank owned real estate transactions.  When Callie began selling Real Estate full time she was on a team within RE/MAX Gold for 4 years working directly with buyers and sellers on traditional, bank owned, and short sales.

Upon graduation with honors she was accepted to the University of McGeorge to pursue a law degree. She discovered, however, that law was not the direction in life she wanted to pursue and upon her leaving law school, went into real estate. Her knowledge of contracts and property law helped her excel quickly in the real estate field.

Callie is a very driven individual and has much professional and life experience. She worked in sales and customer service during her college years and has always enjoyed working in a field that allowed her to help people. She has lived all over the west coast and maintains a very active lifestyle. She spends time volunteering in the local community at a horse rescue in El Dorado Hills and spends her free time with her husband, their 2 lovable large dogs and 2 horses of their own.

Callie has great relationships with people in the community including her real estate peers and colleagues.  Real estate has changed immensely in the past several years. It used to be considered a fairly easy profession and Callie has learned in what most Realtors are calling a difficult market. That’s just the thing, Callie didn’t become a Realtor because it was easy, she welcomes the challenge that this new market has to offer and enjoys working hard for her clients.

She is also recognized as one of the top 100 realtors in all of California.

Mercedes Emanuel

Associate Realtor® (Retired)

I’ve been a licensed realtor and property manager since 1987. My family is my pride and joy. They have taught me patience, endurance and many life lessons that have made me who I am today.

I was born in Havana Cuba and immigrated to the United States in 1969 (se habla Espanol). I come from a very humble upbringing. My Father was the hardest working man I’ve known yet he taught me to appreciate the simple pleasures in life. My mother had a heart of gold. She was selfless and loved her children with all her soul. The qualities I learned from my parents are priceless and have cultivated passion and drive for helping people find the home of their dreams or getting top dollar selling their home. Being fair, honest and dependable is how I treat all my clients. I will not be happy unless my clients are completely satisfied with the job I have done for them. I have worked in varied real estate markets across the country gaining knowledge, building an arsenal of Real Estate information so my clients can benefit from my diverse experiences.

There is so much more to real estate than buying and selling a property. I provide an individualized touch to sellers and buyers that is unsurpassed. My clients remain my friends well after the deal is done. I have been a licensed realtor in two states for many years. My background as a business woman, mom, military wife, horse owner, Australian Shepherd lover, and non-profit volunteer has given me the experience to manage expectations. If you are looking for a client oriented realtor who is always available to you and will represent your desires with precision, please give me a call.
