REALTOR®, Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®), Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI),
Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES®), Dotloop® Top 10 Most Tech-Savvy Agents
Growing up in small-town Arkansas as the oldest of four children, with a widowed mom, Emmy Martin Sorrells learned at an early age that hard work is important and that education is one of the things that you cannot have taken away from you. She carried these lessons with her when obtaining her undergraduate degrees in English and Psychology from Auburn and the University of West Alabama and then in her work in the banking, engineering and pulp and paper industries. Back in 2001, Emmy found herself wanting to go back to work part time after her first child was born and ended up owning and operating a private preschool. While it was a not a direct path to the real estate world, she claims overlaps perfectly with her work now (but not for the reasons you might think!):
“Imagination is the ability to turn anything into a rocket ship, or an animal, or a best friend. Or to see the hidden potential in a fixer-upper or on a large white wall in your unfinished basement,” she explains. Also, “Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. Spending time at home, laughing, eating, creating memories is the best gift you can give your family. I want to help you find a HOME, not just a house.”
She has worked hard to make herself a Top Producing Agent for Three Sixty and an expert in Residential New Construction. “I love the process of seeing a house come out of the ground, whether it’s a builder spec home or a client pre-sale. The whole process is so rewarding when the construction and design processes merge to create a beautiful house that someone will soon turn into their first, next or last home.”
Emmy and her husband, Kevin, met in the loveliest village while in college and have been married since 1995. They loved their little college town so much they decided to make it their home. They have two children who are now away at school, making them new to the empty nest club. Their daughter is studying graphic design and art direction at SCAD and their son is a student athlete studying Physical Therapy at UAB.
Emmy loves all things Auburn, goes to the beach every chance she has, Pilates & yoga, live music (remember concerts?!) and takes every opportunity she can to travel. She makes her bed every day, is a member of Cornerstone Church, and volunteers for just about everything she can. Her PTO days now over, she is currently serving as secretary on the board of The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Lee County, Past President of the East Alabama Network of the Women’s Council of Realtors, Past co-chair and current member of the Professional and Philanthropy committee in the Auburn Women’s Club, Junior League of Lee County Sustainer and former chair of the Community Service committee for the Lee County Association of REALTORS, in addition to serving in our newly formed PWB (Professional Women in Building).
She has earned her GRI (Graduate of REALTOR Institute), ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative) and SRES (Senior Real Estate Specialist) designations and is C2EX Certified (Commitment to Excellence) and is working towards her Broker’s License currently. She was also recently named to the inaugural Dotloop® Top 10 Most Tech-Savvy Agents worldwide. After all, as Oscar Wilde famously said “you can never be overdressed or overeducated.” Emmy never fails to inspire us or make us laugh, and her clients agree! We are so lucky she is a part of the Three Sixty team.
