Emily Daniel knows everything there is to know about being a real estate agent without being one.
She became partial owner of Achosa Home Warranty three years ago and was its first outside sales representative. In her role, Daniel is a connector between the Realtor and homeowner. She has a gift of connecting and utilizes this in helping clients understand the importance of purchasing a home warranty.
She started with the Greater Nashville Realtors and originally was not sure selling was something she would be good at. Now, 11 years later with a career going strong, Daniel knows she made the right decision.
“I have a holistic approach with Realtors, as it truly makes the transaction go better and is really a deal for the homeowners,” she says. “My role after the home closes is to be a relationship builder with the homeowner.”
Daniel explains home warranties are important because you want to be able to have access to a local person in a situation where something goes wrong after purchasing a home.
A home warranty is simply a way for homeowners to protect themselves from unforeseen expenses when their home’s eligible systems or appliances break down. Having a home warranty offers peace of mind.
The difference at Achosa, Daniel says, is unlike other traditional home warranty companies that have limited contacts of contractors in their networks, giving the power to the homeowner to choose the right person for their job is important.
“I order all my warrantied with Emily,” says Marla Richardson, Realtor with Parks Realty in Brentwood. “She is responsive and professional. I also like that her company allows homeowners to choose who comes into their homes to make repairs.”
While most items are covered, there can be limitations, and reading the policy and procedures is key.
“Homeowners must read the fine print, what is covered and what is not,” Daniel says.
One challenge Daniel has seen in a competitive market is that transactions are moving quickly.
“There is such a demand for housing, and with a competitive market, often, the home warranty is overlooked right now,” she says. “What becomes a challenge is after the sale closes and the new homeowner discovers issues with a roof, hot water heater or other appliances in the home.”
As if Daniel is not busy enough in her career, in 2019, she became publisher of Nashville Real Producers magazine.
A niche franchise magazine, Nashville Real Producers serves the top real estate agents in the area by hosting exclusive invite-only social events, introducing them to the best vendors in the industry, and publishes a magazine for and about other high-performing agents.
“We were the fifth magazine to start, and there are now 150 across the country,” Daniel says.
Richardson, who is a high-performing agent, has been featured in the magazine.
“From the photo shoot to sitting down and sharing why I love being a Realtor was valuable, as others in the industry learned about me and why my business works,” she says. “My hope is that my story helps another agent in their career. Emily made the process easy because she was so easy to talk to. I was truly honored she featured me.”
The magazine is important to Daniel because of the community it creates in the real estate industry.
“I am a storyteller at heart and love getting to tell Realtors’ stories every month,” she says. “The more they get to know one another, the easier the transactions become. They have fascinating stories about how they got in the business and things they have overcome.”
She also plans events and finds great partners to advertise.
