"My husband immediately liked Linda's straightforward communication style when we met her at an open house. My husband told me "I could work with her" as we went to our car. We began working with her shortly after that. Linda always tells us the way things are, not what we want to hear. She got to know us and what we were looking for, and she guided us throughout the process. Honestly, she's become a trusted friend and mist, someone, I am comfortable referring others to. Never once during this journey of several months was Linda neglectful of us, even though she was juggling several clients. We really appreciated that quality. Another plus is that when Linda was not available to show us a house, her partner Dana assisted us. She was knowledgeable and thorough as well. Linda and Dana are exactly as good Realtors should be.

"We loved working with Linda. She wasn't happy until we were happy and she worked hard to make that happen. It took several months but Linda found us the perfect home here in Austin and 3 years later we still love it!."

"Linda is an amazing realtor that I would gladly recommend to anyone! She is extremely knowledgeable and was a huge help in getting my my first home. She gave me confidence throughout the entire process and was always willing to help answer questions and give me advice. I felt that she went above and beyond in finding the right home and making sure that I was comfortable. Linda was also incredibly responsive, which is something that I defintely appreciate. I wouldn't work with anyone else now that I have Linda."

"Linda is a dedicated professional realtor. She and her team helped me get my home prepped to list, held open houses and sent updates after every showing. She took the anxiety out of the process and got the job done to my complete satisfaction. Look no further, Linda will get it done."

"Linda is professional and attentive. We've purchased two properties with her help. Her professionalism and insightfulness in the Austin market is unlike no other realtor we've had in the past. We absolutely loved her sincerity, she was vested in helping us find the perfect property. Outstanding realtor." "Oh my, working with Linda was an absolute delight. I was selling my home from another state so knowing that Linda was completely on top of every aspect of my home getting sold to even managing some of the maintenance of my house, selling some of my furniture was such a relief! I will absolutely recommend her to anyone needing to sell or buy a home in Austin. !" - Tejal Patel

"Monica helped us buy our home three years ago. My wife and I liked her direct, no-nonsense advice and demeanor. If you want someone to give you honest advice and feedback based on your best interests, she's the Realtor for you. We've been happily living in our Austin home ever since." - Lilli & Mark

"Linda has been and still is very helpful and extremely supportive of me and my wishes. Once, I made known to her what I was looking for in a house she helped me in getting that house I'm happy to say. She is very prompt in responding to my emails, phone calls or text. I have called her late at nights and she was there for me. Her guidance through this process, which was harrowing at times, was a blessing.
Whenever I was flustered and at end of my tether she reassured me that it will all be wonderful in the end! What can I say, except that it was a crazy wonderful journey I had the opportunity to go on with Linda at the helm!!! Of course, I will recommend her to my family and friends, it goes without saying. !

"Our latest deal was extremely trying for all involved. Linda was an unbelievable advocate for us when things were going bad. If it wasn't for her constant attention to all the issues, I don't think our purchase would have closed on time. " - John Moore
