Emily Millanes


Emily’s diverse background in both the financial and real estate industries has made her invaluable to the businesses she has worked with over the years. She began her financial career in 2000 and has held positions such as Branch Office Manager, Office of Supervisory Jurisdiction and Chief Compliance Officer over the past 20 years. Her foray into real estate began in 2003 when she took on the office management for a small real estate brokerage and began to learn about real estate investment. Since that time, she has continued to amass knowledge and experience in both industries. It was this unique skill set that led her to join the Sterling group of companies in 2010 as the Chief Compliance Officer for their investment advisory firm. She has been integral in the day-to-day growth and operations of the Sterling Companies and in the formation of their private placement funds. In 2019, she was appointed as a Managing Partner with Sterling and currently oversees their back office, project and investment management and real estate acquisitions operations.

Emily has a strong sense of community and is often involved in volunteer efforts. She currently volunteers as the Secretary for her community HOA board and is serving as the President of the Parent Organization at her children’s elementary school. She resides in Mesa, AZ with her husband and three children. When Emily is not busy working or volunteering, she can be found spending time with her family enjoying a variety of activities such as biking, traveling and gardening.
