In deciding to partner together, Harriet and Emily are breaking all the rules of the real estate business! Years ago, almost all REALTORS® worked on their own as independent contractors for their brokerage firms. More recently, individual REALTORS® have formed teams comprised of a primary REALTOR® and a group of Buyer's Agents. By forming a team of two licensed experienced REALTORS®, Harriet and Emily have essentially created a brokerage within a brokerage.

Harriet Goodove, an experienced real estate agent for 30 years, is never too busy for her clients. Known for her unparalleled responsiveness and attention to her client's needs, she decided to partner with an experienced agent who worked with the same dedication. When asked, Harriet said, "That's why I chose Emily Caplan Nied."

In addition to bringing her own clients, Emily brings her strong financial background and advanced technical skills to the team. Having grown up in the Larkspur area of Virginia Beach and then getting her Masters in Business Administration from Columbia University, she has combined this background with her enthusiasm for real estate to be a successful and respected agent.

By utilizing her financial and marketing skills, Emily has created a customized marketing strategy for those clients selling their homes in a challenging market, and she uses her exceptional bargaining tools to get the best results for her clients.

And don't forget her sense of style, says Harriet. She has the rare ability to quickly connect with our clients and understand what they're looking for in a home.

Coupling Harriet's reputation and years of experience with Emily's skill set makes this team unique in Hampton Roads. Add that to the resources of their broker, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Towne Realty, and they are one unbeatable team! 'BHHS offers a strong brand name both locally and nationally, Says Emily. The advertising budget alone is greater than any of its competitors. BHHS also has a partnership with Yahoo that allows our clients to participate in a seller advantage program. Our clients can see who is viewing their listing online when we email daily or weekly reports on the status.

Harriet Goodove and Emily Caplan Nied have known each other for years. Harriet's son Scott, and Emily have been friends since meeting at Kempsville Junior High School.  Back then, Harriet and Emily never guessed that they would one day be working together. They decided to partner their business at the end of 2007. We want to combine our experience to help more clients each year, said Harriet.

Harriet has been a household name in the Hampton Roads real estate market for the past 30 years. Her experience through all types of markets, as well as her extensive client base, is the reason I was excited to partner with her, said Emily.
