Emery’s experience in Manhattan real estate began at City Sites working with luxury rentals and was later followed by working at Rutenberg Realty NY. These experiences presented Emery with an opportunity to articulate client needs and negotiate contracts in the Manhattan market. However, the building blocks of his real estate career came from his educational background.
Emery has a Law Degree in Criminal Justice and Bachelors in Russian history. After graduating from college, Emery moved to Canada and pursued architectural studies at the University of Waterloo. These academic pursuits along with his real estate education have been the foundation for the way Emery does business.
Upon arriving to the United States Emery worked in Florida and was directly involved in the development and construction of the famous Aventura Mall. This project gave Emery a holistic experience in real estate development. In 1988 he moved to New Jersey and developed his own product manufacturing and distribution business. During that time Emery was deeply involved with UJA-United Jewish Appeal. He later sold his business and decided to dedicate himself fully to real estate.
When engaging in a real estate transaction, Emery contributes a profound knowledge of the Manhattan real estate market through his participation in dozens of deals. He also has a deep appreciation for Manhattan architecture - he loves traditional buildings for their historic details and modern buildings for their clean lines and simplicity.
