Native Houstonian Linda’s professional portfolio includes a 20-year-plus, wide-ranging career of significant accomplishments within the healthcare and consulting industries. Prior to becoming a Realtor®, Linda earned a nursing degree from Houston Baptist University, practiced as an ICU nurse, transitioned into healthcare technology services and consulting, and finally moved into sales and executive oversight.
According to Linda, the dynamics of her previous career – managing multiple, detailed projects and providing guidance and counseling to families, clients, and consultants – are similar to managing a real estate transaction. “In consulting, there were always new systems and processes to learn and new projects to develop and manage, as well as new clients and people to meet and assist, just as there are in real estate sales,” she says. “There’s also a strong emotional element present in both fields that requires great sensitivity and understanding.”
Linda uses her impressive communication, service and financial skills to understand each client’s unique situation and goals. A successful, proven business leader, she has a keen understanding of complex contracts and possesses the expertise and confidence to guide clients through their transactions from start to successful finish. She is proactive and positive and continuously searches for opportunities to learn more and share what she has learned.
Houston’s traditional inner-Loop and near-Loop neighborhoods - Bellaire, Meyerland, West University, Rice Village, Tanglewood, and close-in Memorial – encompass the major areas where Linda sells. In addition to drawing on her innate knowledge as someone “born and raised in Houston and Sugar Land,” Linda employs a wealth of valuable experience gained from working closely with her former husband, a residential builder, on many of his projects. That exposure to the intricacies of home construction now helps her to assess a property’s strengths and weaknesses and communicate that information to her clients.
When not selling real estate, Linda volunteers as an officer for the Baylor College of Medicine Partnership and serves the leader of Landscaping for the Indian Circle Home Owners Association. Her leisure time includes traveling or at least getting away to the country whenever she can to spend time outdoors. Linda loves spending time with her daughter and son-in-law in LA and her son and daughter-in-law who live in Austin.
