Emily Scanlon

Director of Operations

After graduating from Boston University with a degree in Communications, Emily entered the real estate industry with employment at a boutique Boston direct private lender and property management firm, managing short term loans and coordinating purchases, sales and refinance transactions.

In the spring of 2020, while the pandemic was creating an unprecedented level of uncertainty in the real estate market and record-high loan default rates, RF Boston was entering a period of transition. Emily was offered the opportunity to join the company and was immediately tasked with stabilizing the firm’s current loan portfolio, shortening the time from origination to loan closing, and maximizing the loan close rate. In January 2021, RF Boston re-structured and Emily remained with the company as a co-founding team member and its Director of Operations. Two years later, RF Boston has emerged as one of the most active and reliable private lenders in Massachusetts.

As RF Boston’s Director of Operations Emily oversees the entire life cycle of a loan – from origination and underwriting, through loan servicing and managing the construction process, to loan payoff. Emily has closed over 200 bridge loans in her career, totaling over $120,000,000 and ranging in loan size from $100,000 to $9,000,000. Additionally, Emily has significant accounting experience not only in loan servicing, but also in property management as she managed both receivables and payables for a portfolio of 200+ residential and commercial units.

In her spare time, you can find Emily exploring vegan recipes and restaurants, and practicing yoga. She frequents concerts around New England, and spends time in Vermont with her husband Ryan, their son Levon, and their Vizsla puppy Tela.
