Our family has always loved the mountains and would make biweekly weekend trips up to Big Bear Lake regularly. With the lockdown of 2020, the availability for my husband to work from home made the permanent move to these beautiful mountains a reality. I have a 25 year long background in all things customer service and retail management. I have been working for RE/MAX & Mountain Top Escrow since June of 2022 and I am relishing in all the knowledge and support of this amazing company. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to work within a company that supports their employees and to live in a community that treats each other like family.
Emily Heuerman, Director of First Impressions
At nine years old, my family moved to the Big Bear Valley. Although I enjoy skiing and hiking through the forest, I am not much of an outdoor person. I prefer to spend my time making jewelry, drawing fantasy art, and designing websites. In 2013, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division in Interactive Media and Web Design. I switched gears and became a local Realtor in 2017. Three years later, I transitioned into Escrow. I am grateful to live and work in a four season resort town surrounded by the gorgeous forest scenery and beauty of the changing seasons.
