Emily Frank Leon has a varied and interesting professional history. Before becoming a Realtor she spent two years in private law practice in New York City, and eight years as a confidential court attorney in the New York State Appellate Division 2nd Department where she drafted judicial opinions. Emily’s comprehensive knowledge, skill and experience put her buyers’ and sellers’ best interests at the forefront during every part of the transaction process, from the very first home showing to a successful closing day.
A New Jersey native, Emily grew up in Summit and attended Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, majoring in English Literature and Art History. These interests led her to spend a year abroad at Oxford University studying “paleography,” the art and science of deciphering ancient manuscripts. This experience sparked a lifelong love of the arts and classic architecture.
After finishing her bachelor’s degree, Emily earned a law degree from Hofstra University. During her legal career she resided in the iconic New York City neighborhoods of Beekman Place and Tribeca. Today she lives in a historic home in Basking Ridge with her husband and their two sons.
Emily serves as President of the Mendham Country Day School Parents Association, and is an active member of the Gala Committee of the Museum of Craftsman Farms, the birthplace of the Arts and Crafts movement in Morris Plains. In her free time, Emily is an avid equestrienne who especially enjoys riding in the desert environs of her family’s second home in Arizona.
With her unique professional background, strong sense of integrity, and experience transplanting a family with two young boys from New York City, she is especially well-suited to guide relocating buyers who are interested in settling in the area and finding a truly special home.
Emily is proud to represent the Bernardsville Office, and she looks forward to serving her clients with top production results and principled business practices.
