About Emily & Dirk
Emily began her journey into real estate in December of 2012. Her decision to change careers from graphic design to real estate came after she and Dirk returned to Oklahoma from Pittsburgh, PA. Within her first year in business, Emily received the highly regarded award for “Rookie Of The Year” – a title given only to the single highest producing first-year agent in the entire state of Oklahoma. Every year since then has shown a substantial growth in business and production. Emily’s continued success is due in part to her thorough training, and an extensive background in the advertising industry.
This momentum eventually lead Dirk to join the family business in 2016 as Transaction Coordinator / Media Director. He became a licensed Realtor® in early 2018. As a husband & wife real estate team, they complement each other in their work just as well as in personal life.
