As a REALTOR® and now, broker, the only thing that matters is integrity. It is no accident that 94% of Linda’s business was from referrals and repeat business during her time as a real estate agent. Linda’s first broker was the head of Real Estate Ethics for the state of Iowa. Her emphasis on fairness, full-disclosure, transparency, and knowledge of and adherence to law, left an indelible mark. This experience put Linda on a course of seeking specific education and credentials to deepen her knowledge of real estate from the core principles upward. Since navigating over 800 transactions in her 18+ year career as a full-time agent, she knew it was imperative that her clients were treated honestly, ethically, and equally regardless of price range or outcome.

Real estate is a career, a passion, and a privilege as Linda helped people find a place to call home, nurture their families, and build a life that begins with home. As a Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Crossroads, she utilizes her past skills and experiences and apply those to help her agents develop their businesses and as those businesses grow, assist them in setting up the structure to achieve their goals.
