A born Torontonian, I work, play, and live in Toronto east with my husband, two sons and a daughter. Family is very important to me, and my intimate knowledge of the city, school systems, and neighbourhoods (Scarborough, the Beach, East York, Riverdale, Central, High Park & Bloor West Village) will ensure you find the perfect place to call home.
A full-time professional agent for 10+ years. Since 2005 I have continually placed in the top 1% of agents across the GTA, transacting in over $10M dollars in properties on an annual basis and over $100M Year-to-date.
Prior to becoming a real estate agent, I worked within the financial, and marketing areas. My background in these fields will be beneficial to you when negotiating your next purchase, or providing advice on prepping (yes staging is complimentary as a value added service) your property for sale to ensure maximum value.
That’s my persona, as well as my outlook to living, people and relationships. Change is good, so if you’re considering:
Upgrading from renting to Ownership
Getting into urban condo living
First time homebuyer
Maintaining a rental income
My own personal experiences will ensure that your next move is an enjoyable experience. Talk to me…, I’m listening.
Questions, questions, questions – “What should you do if…?” Whether you need to find the right financing, home inspector, contractor, or designer, I have the contacts that will guide you in the right direction even after you’ve unpacked – I am always available to you. So stop wondering what the equity is in your home, and call me. I will keep you updated on events, so that you are well informed. As a consummate professional I am always committed to YOU.

We all know that buying and selling a house is one of life’s most exciting and stressful events and today’s market has only amplified both of those emotions. My husband and I came to Linda after we had already committed to the purchase of a new home outside Toronto and we needed to sell ours as quickly as possible but it was far from ready to list and get the price we wanted. Linda’s contacts were able to literally start work the next week painting, pulling up carpet, refinishing wood floors, cleaning, staging (both inside and out) all while we still lived in our home with minimal disruption to our lives. Linda was always available for direct, honest emotional support as well. We were able to sell our house in 6 days, over asking and with no conditions in a market that the media had reminded me daily had “stalled” and while other homes in our direct neighbourhood had sat unsold for weeks. If I could share three things with anyone currently looking to sell their home they would be: Surrender to the process. Trust Linda’s vision. Sell your home!
When we knew that we were staying in Toronto permanently, we considered buying a home. A friend highly recommended Linda to us, and working with her has tremendously changed our lives. She helped us immensely in obtaining our first family home with an experienced hand that provided us the opportunity to buy within an affordable budget. When new additions to our family meant that we needed to find a bigger home, we sought Linda’s expertise and advice again! She helped put everything into place so that we were able to find the perfect home for our growing family, and then expertly prepared and marketed our first home for a selling price that exceeded our expectations. She is always honest and upfront, and shows great dedication to the interests of our family. Linda had our full trust. At every step, she took the time to listen to us, and provided knowledgeable and thoughtful advice so that we were able to make informed decisions.
Linda has been a wonderful resource for any discussion around not only Toronto real estate, but renovations, schools, neighbourhood amenities and countless other things. She is a great realtor and a better person. We are very grateful for all her hard work, professionalism, and dedication.
If you are in the market for a masterful, holistic, client centric realtor – look no further. Linda’s care, kindness and total transparency of information sharing makes her a perfect partner to have on your side.
Buying a home is overwhelming. Searching for a home while you are the other side of the country add a lot more pressure. She remained empathic and patient as she piloted us through time zones, reconciled wish lists and properties.
Thank you for your tenacity in finding me the perfect home; one that is congruent with my wish list, character, values and budget. I couldn’t have done this without your impeccable taste, discernment, drive and professionalism. Thank you Linda!
My dearest Linda, we just wanted to tell you how wonderful you are! For being there and giving us strength when we didn’t think we could go on and showing us that there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. Especially, for all the time you unselfishly gave up with your family to help us. Our gratitude is endless and we will forever be indebted for all your hard work and dedication in getting our home sold so that we may start our journey to retirement. Not only did we find a great Realtor we found a wonderful human being who CARES. Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts.
