Realtor and luxury-home specialist Emma Dow’s go-getter attitude and robust enthusiasm for the Houston area is living proof that personal success often comes from helping others. Her process-driven, passionate style is best summed up in her own words: “Professional, experienced in sales and negotiating, relentless, I get up every morning excited to get to work!”
After spending 20 years in sales and marketing roles within the oil and gas industry, Dow kick-started her real estate career by putting the wide range of skills she learned in her former field to their full potential. As she explains, “My past life as a global account manager and vice president of marketing really helped me.” After attending many training courses in marketing, sales, buyer/seller behavior and expert negotiation, along with training at Harvard Business School, she decided it was time to launch a new career.
Around the same time, Dow and her husband got a taste for real estate when they bought ag-exempt acreage and built a “barndominium” in the Texas Hill Country. This experience, as well as investments in rental properties, gave the couple valuable perspective. “We really enjoyed the real estate process and wanted to help others do the same,” Dow recalls. “It makes a difference if you have experienced what your clients are going through.”
Dow received the illustrious RE/MAX Chairman’s Club Award in 2021, ending the year with RE/MAX among the top 20 agents in Houston and the top 50 in Texas. She’s also garnered the Five Star Real Estate Agent award four years in a row. When not enjoying her hobby of renovating and traveling in vintage Airstreams with her husband, she is an avid advocate for many local causes. In the last year alone, she has donated over $12,000 to various animal charities, more than double the yearly donations she committed to since starting as a Realtor.
