Emily Tsaconas is a third generation East Bay resident who has an unparalleled understanding of all that makes the Bay Area an exceptional place to live, work, and raise a family. In 2017, she joined the dynamic team of agents at BHG HIGHLAND PARTNERS, the only real estate brokerage in Piedmont. As a Realtor, Emily specializes in representing buyers and sellers of residential property in Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont and Albany.
Growing up, Emily was the steadfast shadow of her mother, beloved and unconventional Realtor Jennie Lippincott. Emily presented an offer before she was a week old, and toured more homes as a pre-schooler than most people see in a lifetime. Inspired by her mother’s commitment to providing deeply personal service within her community, Emily prioritizes building family-focused client relationships that will serve as the strongest foundation for successful real estate transactions across years and generations.
Emily is a proud support of Bike East Bay, The Sylvia Rivera Law Project, and The Women’s Building. When she’s not working, Emily enjoys biking and cooking local food with her partner and their young child.
After graduating with honors from Piedmont High School, Emily earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Southern California in Gender Studies and French followed by a master’s degree from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. Before entering real estate, Emily worked as an academic editor. With her fastidious approach to business and tireless negotiation skills, you can trust that you’re in good hands.
