Super-knowledgeable and professional. Highly recommended! Linda has deep knowledge of, and long experience working in the San Diego housing market. Even at a time when there is almost no inventory nationally, she found and showed us many homes that were beautiful and in our price range. She also had the experience to know how quickly or slowly a house would move, and how we should tailor our offer. She was great!
Highly recommend Linda. She’s very professional, responsive and a great communicator. Linda was also very knowledgeable of the area and was great with lining up inspections, getting bids on work that was needed, etc. - she has a great network of contacts.
I can’t recommend Linda enough regarding her professionalism and expertise as my realtor! Linda’s follow up is impeccable keeping me updated on every aspect of the process as well as willingness to answer all of my questions provided me peace of mind. Her counsel as to prepping the home, setting the price, and marketing it successfully was spot on and gave me confidence that she would get the job done right. Linda was the right choice for selling my home. Thank you Linda!
I can't say enough about Linda. From beginning to end in the process, she handled everything seamlessly and with great enthusiasm. In all my years of dealing with real estate agents, she definitely stands heads and shoulders above the rest. I completely trusted her to take care of all the nuances of a very complicated deal. Moving forward, she is the one I will always choose.
