Emily K. Brandenberger grew up with a salesman and an attorney for parents, and quickly learned that the customer was king and everything was negotiable. After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Health Administration, Emily first put her passion for negotiation to work in the healthcare field. She was first negotiating for hospital systems and large-group purchasing organizations before settling in at MD Anderson Cancer Center here in Houston where she negotiated privately funded contracts. Having worked hundreds of multi-million dollar agreements from the bottom up required attention to detail, constant efficient client communication and effective listening skills all while meeting very strict deadlines. After leaving MD Anderson, Emily decided to put her passion for real estate into practice and join industry leader Greenwood King. After four successful years of selling the best neighborhoods in Houston, followed by a move to Austin, Emily has brought her passion for real estate to lending. She now has the privilege to work with all her former clients and coworkers one loan at a time.
Emily spent most of her youth driving all over Texas for swim meets and water polo games from her suburban home. Returning home to Houston after college, she unexpectedly met her now-husband, Billy. She and Billy now have two wonderful daughters and their Braque Francais, Roscoe. When Emily isn’t helping clients, she can be found spending time with her family, working on her fitness, or volunteering at her daughters’ school.
