Linda was extremely helpful for us first time home buyers, especially in this sellers market! Linda thoroughly walked us through each step of the process and we always knew what to expect! We chose her because of her years of expertise, knowledge and the effort she puts in to share her client's stories building trust with other realtors on the opposite side of the deal! We really lucked out with only having to look at 4 houses and getting our first choice! She fought on our behalf every step of the way making sure that everyone ended up happy in the end! We can't thank her enough for the work she put in to help us get our first home! We learned a ton through this process thanks to Linda and she has trusted partners for any housing need we've had!

Linda was an absolute pleasure to work with. As a first-time homebuyer, she was incredibly educational and patient with me. She has been doing this work for 16+ years and it shows! I truly appreciated her honesty and willingness to go the extra mile for me. She is very trustworthy and can walk into a home and know if it's right for you. When it came down to putting in an offer and negotiations, she advocated for me. I found my perfect dream home with her help! I recommend Linda for anyone searching for their first or next dream home in the Portland metro area!

Working with Linda was such a delight! She was mindful of my needs every step of the way and, as a first time home buyer, ensured I was educated on the entire home buying process. Thanks to months of hard work on her part, I was able to find my dream home! I highly recommend working with her!

Linda is awesome! Really knowledge on all the nuances of homeownership, and super responsive on text/email/phone calls. Excellent on negotiations. Great advice on the specifics of our house and lots of experience to draw on from similar properties. Loved working with her, she offered thoughtful, honest opinions and guidance that really helped me through the complicated process of selling my house. I would highly recommend her.
— Mike V, Portland, OR
I can say with complete confidence that Linda was the best realtor I have ever used. I've bought and sold more than a few houses in my lifetime and this experience was the easiest due to Linda's knowledge and considerable talent for communicating and negotiating. She knew the market like the back of her hand and in the end both sides of the deal left feeling great.

Linda has been our agent for a long time. As seasoned investors and property managers, we needed an experienced and responsive agent. We have completed many property reviews and purchases with Linda as our agent. She is a great agent. She keeps track of all the details and does not waste our time pushing property that is not right for us. Linda is most concerned with making sure her clients find what they want and will love. She has a sixth-sense for what is good and what to avoid. She knows how to get the work done and the deal closed. We have been very pleased with every deal. We feel lucky to have met Linda and consider her to be our friend.

Linda was very helpful and patient in helping us to find our home. There were many possibilities, but she remained patient and diligent in waiting until we found exactly what we were looking for.

I am a realtor in Kansas City, Mo. My son lives in Oregon and was looking to buy their first home. I began searching for an agent that could help them. But not just any agent would do.....after all I'm a Realtor also so wanted someone that would work with an out of state agent and Mother to boot! I interviewed several but once I visited with Linda I knew she was the one. She did an amazing job, educating the first time home buyers and keeping me in the loop which lessened my anxiety miles away. She knew the areas and gave very good direction so that her clients could make good, informed decisions. Bottom line....if you want a great realtor that knows the Portland area...call Linda.

Linda is amazing. She goes above and beyond. She made my first buying experience as painless as possible, even with it being a long distance transaction with multiple parties in different states. She accommodated my limited schedule and drove me around to nearly 20 houses in a few days. She definitely knows her trade and was incredibly helpful in getting multiple quotes and scheduling necessary repairs after the inspection. She negotiated a great deal on an awesome house for us. She is patient and frank and takes time to explain what is happening. I always felt like I was in capable hands. She was invested, engaged, communicative, and trustworthy. I highly recommend her!

Buying a home with Linda is like watching her buy a home for herself. She takes time to understand what you are looking for and helps you find it. She truly wants you to have what you want and takes pride in being able to accomplish this. She is very patient in waiting for the right time and the right property. Linda has very trustworthy contacts with whom she has established good working relationships: loan officer, inspector and contractors. She will be your best friend from start to finish. And, by the way, she is fantastic at selling you to the seller -- a superb writing ability to get across the important facts which I believe is the finishing touch in getting a deal to go through.

Linda is unbelievably amazing! She helped me find a house, kept me in the loop via text messages & emails, and when there was a post sale issue with the seller she kept on top of it daily until it was resolved in our favor. I've never met anyone who put as much energy into the sale after it was over as when it was in process.

Linda is a true professional: diligent, knowledgeable, prompt, and an absolute pleasure to work with. She was instrumental in helping negotiate a great deal on our second home, and she is the listing agent for the sale of our first home as well. I'm positive that without her help we wouldn't have been able to purchase our new home at our price. She framed our offer perfectly to the sellers, and she was consistently present throughout the closing process, quickly attending to all of my questions as well as accelerating the process so we never risked not closing on time. She even attended the signing -- partly to celebrate with us, partly to ensure that no mistakes held up the process. At every stage of our negotiation and close, Linda shared her time graciously, even meeting during off-hours or going out of her way to deliver documents or keys. She's truly someone you want to have on your side if you are buying or selling a home. Most important, she listens closely to her clients, never trying to force them into decisions that wouldn't be right. She laughs easily, too, which helped remind us that despite the myriad steps necessary to buy or sell a home, the process can be fun, too. She seems to care about her clients as people first, and that's crucial for a decision of this magnitude. She looked out for our best interests throughout the entire home-buying and home-selling process. Whether you're in town or from out of state, you will benefit greatly from reading her blog, Property Blotter, which focuses on the Lake Oswego and Portland markets. I found it immensely helpful -- and a welcome/needed human side to the much more computerized research I was doing on Zillow, Redfin, and Movoto. Call her. She was solid gold for us.

Linda was a big help when we wanted to buy our first house! We came to town for only a few days and she tirelessly drove around town to look at house after house with us. Once we found a place, Linda helped us patiently through the whole home-buying process, and had great contacts to recommend for everything from a mortgage broker to a sewer inspection company.
— Kirsten B, Portland, OR
Linda and I worked together. My intention was to have privacy and a touch of nature in the city, and it showed up as my amazing, new home!
— Anthony O, Portland, OR
Linda is fantastic! She helped us buy our first home and we got a great house for a really good deal, in a competitive market. Linda is excellent at what she does and she helped us through the whole process very patiently. She was always available to help and was extremely reliable and responsive 100% of the time. She really went above and beyond in helping us find and purchase the right home in so many ways. This was a unique home and it required some complicated inspections and negotiation to make it work and Linda was amazing through it all. We were so lucky to find her. Linda did so much--she even climbed around our unfinished attic to talk with the inspector and send us photos. There was no task too small for her to help with. I honestly don't think we could have done this without her. Linda really cares about her customers and takes pride in her work. She is professional and effective and I would recommend her to anyone--including my own family. She is definitely a smart choice for anyone looking for a realtor.

Linda sold our home in a down market in 6 days. We couldn’t believe it! She brought the buyer through her spot-on marketing, and the transaction literally could not have been smoother.”

Linda sold my home during a period when the market was seen as challenging. I couldn't be more pleased.
