Emily has been an essential member of the De Bruin Law Firm from the day she started. She keeps the office running smoothly and assists in Real Estate and Business Law matters. She wants to continue learning about various legal areas as she grows into her profession. 

As a real estate paralegal, Emily handles residential and commercial real estate closings. This includes preparing title reports, reviewing title, and coordinating with all parties involved. “Buying a house is one of the biggest and most important purchases our clients will ever make,” she says, “It’s important for us to communicate with all parties so the closing goes as smoothly and stress-free as possible.”

After graduating from North Greenville University with a degree in English, she fell in love with Greenville and decided to move here. “Greenville is the best city in the world,” she says, “It has an active community and so much to do, from food, art, and music festivals, to great hiking and biking. I never want to live anywhere else.”

That’s why I read and travel, and that’s why I enjoy my job,” Emily says, “It’s new and enlightening every day.”
