Patricia Sharkey & Christina Bove

Patricia Sharkey and Christina Bove of The Emma Team are local, tech-savvy REALTORS® (who happen to be sisters) with Keller Williams Realty Premier Properties with offices in Summit NJ, Short Hills NJ and Westfield NJ. They spent the first 12 years of their real estate career working with their father and mentor,  Joe Emma, who after 40+ years retired in 2021. Having been raised in and around the business they have become true experts on their local NJ real estate market. They were raised in a tight knit Italian family and somehow always ended up doing things together. They have always been a great team and are thrilled to be working together to provide professional, effective, and cutting edge real estate services to their fellow homeowners and home buyers. (Fun fact: Patricia is also a Certified Home Stager!)

About The Emma Team

Christina Emma Bove

Selling or buying a home is one of life’s biggest decisions and Christina takes that responsibility very seriously. She understands all the emotions involved in such a significant life event and that's why she is always available to her clients. Here are a few other qualities that make Christina a great agent:

  • She is diligent in everything that she does for her clients.
  • She leverages technology to help her business run smoothly and efficiently.
  • Her knowledge of the area makes her an invaluable resource to both buyers and sellers.
  • She is honest, reliable, and always smiling!
  • In her free time, she loves to spend time with family, entertain, travel, hike, practice yoga, and try to become as good of a cook as her mother. She also speaks Italian!


Patricia Emma Sharkey

Trusting your Realtor when buying or selling real estate is probably one of the most important aspects. Patricia understands this and is very diligent in everything she does for her clients. To her, it's not about the sale but the relationship that is formed. She goes above and beyond for her clients. But don't take her word for it -- read testimonials from past clients!

As a full time agent, Patricia is consistently keeping up to date in all marketing methods, with a special focus on online marketing techniques. Her unique approach to online marketing sets her apart from her competition.


Don't Take Our Word For It

We have worked with Christina and Patricia several times and they are absolutely professional, thorough and dedicated to their client's needs. Working with the EMMA Team is always a smooth and comfortable experience. We always recommend them to those looking to buy or sell. Thank you Emma Team!!

Christina Bove was the marketing agent for a new home development we recently completed in Mountainside, Echo Ridge Townhomes. She is highly skilled and very dedicated to her profession. I was fortunate to have her as a part of our team.

I found the Emma Team to be extremely knowledgeable, helpful, attentive and pleasurable as agents during the sale of a family home. Without hesitation, I will use their expertise in the future.



Christina Bove is absolutely top notch and was such a joy to work with. Christina helped us sell our rental property in Bedminster while we were living in California. She made the entire process seamless and went above and beyond to ensure everything was resolved for the sale. She even helped our tenants and prevented an issue for their purchase even though she was not their agent. Then we decided to relocate back East and Christina helped us with the purchase of a home (all virtually). She had our best interest, stayed ahead of potential issues and was more than helpful in guiding us make the right decisions. Having her representation really made it easy for us to find the perfect place. She really took the time to understand our preferences and what we gravitated towards. I would highly recommend Christina to anyone who is looking to rent, buy or sell a home she is authentic, dependable and is a person with high integrity.

Seller & Buyer

We have had three wonderful real estate experiences with The Emma Team. At every step of the way both Christina and Patricia were available to help with sales prep, staging, and to counsel us through the process. They bring a wealth of experience, particularly in the northern NJ market that exceeds their youthful energy. Our experience was more of a partnership in the sale process than that of a client/patronage agreement. All three of these sales process took place while we lived 500 miles away in North Carolina. At every point, the team was available to address our reasonable and borderline unreasonable request. We would recommend their services to anyone looking for effective, knowledgeable, and committed real estate representation.

I am extremely grateful for the work Patricia & Christina did for me and my family. They were helpful with so many aspects of the home sale that if it wasn't for them, my house would still be on the market.

Christina was there for us even after a few setbacks. Throughout the process she was very responsive, we never felt as if we were being pressured, and no matter how many places we wanted to see, she happily accommodated (along with her dad). Really great people to work with and I'd highly recommend her and team to my friends and family


Mountainside, NJ

This was the second time working with Patricia Sharkey and the Emma Realtors. The service is excellent...we were able to sell the house in the first week for the full price....I had the opportunity to work with them in the purchasing 5 years ago, and now in the sale. We really had a very nice experience working together in both opportunities.


Summit, NJ

We recently sold our home with Emma Realtors. Patrica Sharkey was wonderful. From beginning to end, she was dependable, informed, caring and smart. Patrica went above and beyond from the very beginning. We couldn't have asked for a better sale experience.


Mountainside, NJ

Highly recommend Patricia and Christina who put together a very impressive marketing plan and brochure. Thank you for your hard work and tenacity in getting the sale completed.


Hillside, NJ

I highly recommend Patricia and the entire team at Century 21 Emma Realtors. They are hardworking, professional, trustworthy, and they go above and beyond for their clients. We hit some bumps in the road with the process of selling our home, but Patricia was always on top of everything that was happening. We always felt like we could reach out to her for anything, advice, encouragement, even just the occasional venting about the process! We enjoyed working with her and her team!


Union, NJ

Christina is terrific! She is patient, knowledgeable and always available to answer your questions. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling in this area. She made our experience so much easier and less stressful. Thanks again for everything.

I am so happy with my choice to have Christina as our real estate agent. By far the best I have ever had. Christina will definitely be the one I call in the future.


Mountainside, NJ

Christina Bove helped us purchase our home from May to July 2016. She is friendly, easy-going, and extremely professional. We absolutely loved working with Christina! She made buying our first home a wonderful experience.

“We purchased a home with Christina 3 months ago in New Providence, NJ and we can say we had a great experience working with her. She went above and beyond to help us with the entire process, which can be really stressful sometimes. Some of her main qualities are: hardworking, honest, kind, patient, and knows the area really well. And above all we always felt we could trust her entirely.”


New Providence, NJ

"Patricia is an experienced, knowledgeable professional with a warm personality. Not only did she do a great job educating us through the sale of our home; she worked tirelessly with us on a search for our new home. She was always so flexible and was able to work with our schedule. We’re so grateful to Patricia for helping us find out dream home but we miss her."

C. Jorda

Cranford, NJ

Working with Christina was an absolute pleasure and she was the calming and driving force through our entire search and home purchase process.She went the extra mile that is really hard to find in other realtors. She won’t just provide info on the house, but she would find out all the details about the neighborhood, history, and even speak to others who live on the street.

Mike and Sabrina

Westfield, NJ

Patricia helped us find our dream home and was a pleasure to work with through the entire process. She was highly responsive to all our questions and concerns, and readily made herself available for all properties that we were interested in viewing. On the rare couple of occasions that she had a scheduling conflict, she always made sure that her sister (another great Realtor) substituted in her place.


Mountainside, NJ

Christina was professional, honest, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. She understood and anticipated our needs and made purchasing our home a lot less stressful than we had anticipated. I highly recommend her for any real estate transactions you may have in the future.
