The Outstanding Chinese Speaking Team in New York

Emma Hao’s story is legendary… Her  determination and drive has been noticed by many real estate veterans, as have her successes. Her kindness has touched many of her colleagues, clients and competitors alike.
A Beijing native, Emma worked as entrepreneur before moving to the UK to pursue an MBA and then emigrating to the US.  Her studies abroad as well as her experience working in Asia, Europe and the US allowed her to blend her cultural awareness of the East and the West as she rose to become a Top New York Real Estate broker and dominated her market in NYC in a very short time.   When she moved to New York in January 2009,Emma, did not know anyone in the business, her options were to either start over from the ground up or go back to a comfortable life in China. She chose the challenge to start a new life from the ground up, to pursue her dream of building a bridge between China and the rest of world, and in the  process to make a meaningful journey! Realizing the growing demand among Chinese consumers for an international lifestyle, Emma produced and founded "Emma in New York" in 2014, a TV series broadcast widely on social media as well as on Sino Vision - the largest Chinese language TV channel in North America.  Because of her strong ‘spirit’, Emma has brought lots of attention worldwide in Chinese community.

The Emma Hao Team at Douglas Elliman was founded shortly thereafter on the back of strong social media support and momentum. Emma has been responsible for overall business origination, deal execution and marketing strategy since inception, successfully grew her practice at Elliman by focusing on high-end properties and catering to Asian buyers. The Emma Hao team is one of the top producing teams at Douglas Elliman and was awarded the Pinnacle award in 2018, 2017 and also voted one of the top residential real estate teams nationwide in 2019. In 2016, Emma was awarded the prestigious ‘Top 50 Asian Americans in Business’ award by the AABDC.  Emma was the first real estate professional to successfully leverage social media to develop sales. This culminated in the sale of $13MM property on ‘WeChat’ a few years ago which was featured in the Wall Street Journal.

Emma strives to be a knowledgeable broker and to excel professionally
, but she also encourages herself and her peers to challenge themselves and try new things to make life more meaningful. Emma loves to be busy, and she is…She fully embraces every moment to make her journey in life meaningful and rewarding. "There are no failures", Emma believes. "life is a journey, there are various paths we face, but whatever comes, work on it and make the most of it". "I am not a salesperson - she says - I am just striving to be an attractive soul in our little real estate universe".
