My husband and I have recently moved to Oakville from the UK. Linda was highly recommended to us by a friend, and she has been instrumental in helping make our move back as painless as possible. We began working with Linda nearly 18 months ago, before we knew for sure when we would be in Oakville. Linda was always available to us whenever we were in town to show us houses and to help us in our research. She made tons of great suggestions, and really listened to us. It was fantastic to be able to work with someone who didn't put any pressure on us and who understood our circumstances, particularly with organising a trans-atlantic move!
We particularly liked that we never once felt pushed or pressured at all. Linda is great at pointing out all the little things with houses that the normal person doesn't see, the things that can only come from someone with years of experience. We really felt like it was her primary goal to find us the right house, not just to make a sale and move on. Linda knows her stuff inside and out - it was excellent to be able to bounce ideas off of her when we were looking at different places, and she really helped inform our decisions without putting pressure on us. She knows the Oakville market thoroughly, and has great relationships with other agents in the area. She presents herself with honesty and integrity at every meeting. In addition, Linda is a lot of fun to be around - a great sense of humour and a warm character. We always felt at ease with Linda, which made the whole house-hunting process so much easier.
The house she found for us was so much better than we even dared to hope for when we first started looking. Linda spotted an opportunity before it was publicly listed - she knew the house would be perfect for us (in fact, when she called us about it, she opened with "I think I've found your house!"). She was able to negotiate the purchase in a way that worked wonderfully for everyone involved without the house being put on the market. We are incredibly excited to move into our dream home - and are thrilled to be having Linda as a neighbour!
Linda has also offered to help us get set up with contractors and renovators for when we move into our new home - it's great to have someone who knows people who provide quality service and good value, which will no doubt save us a lot of time and headache.
Our experience overall has been brilliant; we would not even consider using anyone else in the future - though we don't plan to need to! We have not hesitated to recommend Linda to friends and family, and will continue to do so.[read more]

Linda sold our old house and helped us purchase our new one. She maintained the perfect balance between professional and friendly service. If it wasn't for Linda's insights when we were making an offer on our new home, our offer would not never have been accepted. If you are looking for a real estate agent, I would highly recommend her.
