At the base of the Angeles National Forest, and steps away from the Sam Merrill Trail, you’ll find this enclave of character homes and cottages. You might be surprised to know that you can buy a home here for under … Read more »
Locating and buying her first home gave Emilie the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of first-time home ownership with many trips to Home Depot (and the Department of Building and Safety) along the way. Moving from the Northwest to Los Angeles she became involved with the local art community and all the diversity Southern California has to offer. Her passion to be involved in her community has led her to become a licensed Real Estate salesperson and broker. She continues to educate herself in different aspects of real estate so that she can provide her clients with the background her diverse education brings. She serves on her local board and is President-Elect of the Pasadena Foothill Association of Realtors 2017 and is represented her region at the state level in her second year as a CAR director through the end of 2018. In 2019, Emilie was the recipient of the Five Star Real Estate award marking her sixth year with this honor.

Give me a call or send me a direct email. I look forward to hearing from you!
The first time I went to Scoops I was hooked! This #NELALiving favorite makes home made gelato every day!
I was delighted to attend the Pasadena Art Night in October.
Buses leave from City Hall and you have the opportunity to check out 16 different venues featuring museums, galleries and art happenings around the city.
I saw a luminescent art installation in the shadow of City Hall. A gallery of photographs from across America taken in the 1920s and a lecture at the Pasadena Public Library on the Water Color Works of Diego Rivera.
It was an awesome evening. This is one of the many perks of Pasade…
Don’t be confused by the coffee shop with a similar name also located on Figuroa, this shop roasts its own beans and has a strong bond with the local are scene. I still enjoy their Mayan Mocha best, but the drip coffee is also very enjoyable.Check them out when they participate in the NELA Art Walk and you get a chance to go in the tunnel-turned-art gallery under Figueroa.http://www.yelp.com/biz/
I finally met the Donut Man located on route 66 in Glendora. This local gem is known for its fresh strawberry donuts and runs out of its apple fritters before 10 am. I first heard about it from Howell Houser’s PBS series and finally made the pilgrimage to try one. Please note my strawberry themed outfit. I recently closed escrow on a home in Covina just a few miles away. If you are interested in looking for properties in the San Gabriel Valley, I am here to help!
In preparation for Halloween, I paid a visit to the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. They were decorated for Halloween but all year round the house has a spooky feel with doors to nowhere, Flights of stairs that do multiple switchbacks between flights and rooms that are closed off from the rest of the house. It has been reported that you can smell food cooking when the kitchen has not been used for years and ghostly apparitions of a gardener who died years ago have been seen walk…
Those who know me know I enjoyed some vintage neon signage (or new neon signage is good too!). If you find yourself driving down Fair Oaks in South Pasadena, you’ve probably noticed the Gus’s Barbecue sign. At night, there are small neon animals that light up and march around the periphery! Open for lunch and dinner, the barbecue doesn’t disappoint either. Or stop by on the weekend and take in a savory brunch!
For those of you who follow my posts, you know I love art. Even better if you can enjoy it for free. That’s why there is a calendar at emiliebroughton.com that includes a selection of museum free days in SoCal. I just attended the Norton Simon‘s free evening and got to check out the special exhibit of Degas. This exhibit is on until April 9th. Be sure to check it out!
Vacations and dreams have all been put on hold for the time being, but luckily there are some ways to keep experiencing Italy even if you cannot explore in person. Here is a list of some of the best Italian museums you can explore virtually for FREE. Musei Vaticani The Vatican Museums have some of the most celebrated collections in the world, and it would be impossible to see all of the treasures with a single visit. Luckily, the Vatican has created an in-depth online guide to the collec…
