|I sold my rental property in California and then planned a 2 day trip to Bend to find a replacement rental property. In order to accomplish this challenge, I needed a real estate agent who would do a lot of the leg work ahead of time so I only needed to visit the most appropriate options. I researched agents on line and fortunately choose Linda. She went right to work even though she had no idea who I was or even if I were a "real buyer". I looked at the listings she sent, commented on them and then she previewed the properties giving me the benefit of her experience and knowledge of the Bend area. Together we came up with the final list which was more than manageable during my two day visit. She had the listings color coded for me along with their locations on a map so I could get my bearings as we drove. I found an excellent property which fit most of my criteria and wrote an offer in time to make my return flight home. Linda negotiated an excellent price for me and called me to congratulate me on my purchase my first night back . Because I was not in the area, Linda did all the work required to complete the transaction. Between Linda and my terrific rental agency (Austin Properties), my rental in Bend is in good hands.|

|Lady worked her butt off for us over a 1.5 year period finding us just the right place. We looked at buildings, homes, lots and everything in between. Even when we lived in Utah and visited the Oregon area when we could she was on top of the search!|
|I would highly recommend Linda as she went above and beyond any expectation I could have had for an agent. She was on top of every detail and issue that came up and kept me up to speed at every turn. Linda was always available either by phone or in person and took care of everything from the water sample to being at the title office, start to finish she was great.|

|Linda was great throughout our home buying experience in Central Oregon. She was very knowledgeable, communicated well, and kept us informed during the entire process. We moved from Portland and this was our first home not on public utilities which can be overwhelming at times when purchasing. She did an excellent job explaining all the ins and outs of "country living" and never hesitated to answer our phone calls and questions. Linda will be my first call if I am ever in need of real estate help and should be yours too.|
|Working with Linda as my realtor was very easy. She listened to what I wanted and was soon able to find homes that would interest me. And, she worked tirelessly to help me find the right home. It was a comfort knowing that she would not become impatient or get frustrated with me as I looked at home after home to find my perfect abode. She understands what an emotionally stressful process this is for a buyer. Linda is a very conscientious realtor and you can feel confident knowing that she follows all real estate rules by the book. And, she is very good at doing research for you.|

Linda has a keen sense of money, retail, and Real Estate markets . I have been aware of her investment strategies and she always has been a good mentor to me. I have received very good advice from Linda concerning buying and selling. She has has a vast network of like minded entrepreneurial peers with whom she is involved on a consistent basis. Linda has helped me both personally and professionally regarding investments, referrals and sales strategies. Linda has taken good care of my clients in Real Estate transactions and I am certain she will be a top notch professional in any business she becomes involved in. It is clear Linda cares about her clients as well as her co-workers and peers in the Real Estate Industry. I have known of her willingness to help others in need even if it meant going out of her way. She always puts her clients first and takes the time to learn about what strategies would be the most prudent and cost effective. In my opinion, this is a good combination of character traits.|

|Linda was the listing agent for an out-of-state property we were interested in. We contacted her directly and the sale went through smoothly. She was accessible and very good with communications. A pleasant and accommodating agent with which to work.|
|You have been very helpful to my husband and I with our search for a new home. I know we are not easy to work for as we are very picky as to what we want in a home and we have been taking our time in our search. You have sent us some very good listings to look at and you have taken us to see property when we have asked. I truly hope to be able continue to work with you further on our search. Thank you for all your time and help, Beth NOTE: Because of their family situation, the Victorine's were very specific in what they were looking for but after 2 years we found their ideal home!|
|Linda, I would like to extend my gratitude for your services in purchasing our new home in Sisters, Oregon. I had contacted a few other realtors before I called you. I felt like I just got lip service and I was very discouraged by their lack of enthusiasm to help us with such an important purchase. From the first time we talked on the phone, I had complete confidence in you. I was excited that I had found a realtor that knew the market, wanted to work for her clients and would be 100% honest. I can’t thank you enough for helping us through the first house deal that didn’t work out and putting forth the extra effort to help us finalize on a house deal that I honestly didn’t think would be possible in the beginning. But most of all, I feel like I made a friend and friends are very special people. Denise|

|Linda, We want to thank you for making our dream of buying a central Oregon home a reality. When we first spoke, I laid out the expectations that I had for finding the right property. You exceeded all our expectations in every way. We have been quite busy with our new Lapine house but plan on contacting you in the future to look for more property. Thanks again for your hard work and dedication in putting this challenging real estate deal together. We would highly recommend you to other prospective buyers and feel free to have anyone contact us if this is helpful. Looking forward to working with your again in the future,|
