Linda and Tom have been selling homes and bare land in the Bend, Redmond, Sisters, Sunriver areas since 1992; and they have been real estate investors for over 40 years. They worked with large, experienced real estate offices for 10 years, before founding Bend Brokers Realty, in 2002. Like Tom, Linda has mentored several Realtor friends.
Linda worked a couple of years as escrow secretary prior to 1992, and also worked as a teacher, corporate bookkeeper, and retail sales manager. The retail experience coincided with their two sons being in high school, and offered Thom and Ty the experience of after school jobs. Thom works with Bend Brokers Realty and Ty is an Anatomy and Biology professor in Ventura, CA. Between them they have three kids, bright, capable grandchildren to be proud of.
After moving to Bend in 1990, Linda has been active in the community in a number of ways. She has belonged to and been a leader in many women’s organizations, including over 40 years with AAUW and she was on the boards of Cascades Festival of Music and Women’s Resource Center of Central Oregon, for five years each. The last few years she has also sung with Harmony 4 Women, a women’s acappella chorus in 4 part harmony, in support of women’s organizations.
Linda is a Principal Broker, has earned a CRS – Certified Residential Specialist and ABR – Accredited Buyer Representative and also holds CSP and SFR designations (Certified (new home) Sales Professional and Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource). She has successfully completed many short sales for clients and has sold and marketed hundreds of homes in the area for both buyers and sellers. She is a long time member of Women’s Council of Realtors, and was honored recently as their 2013 Entrepreneur of the year, largely for her work in the industry and for the community and women.
