Why do you need a realtor?

Why do you need a Realtor?

If you have watched real estate television shows, they make buying or selling a house look simple. The truth is much different. A home is the single largest financial commitment most of us make in our lives. Why would you proceed without professional help?

Experience matters.

With nearly two decades of experience selling houses and achieving high sales production with a major brokerage, I have encountered many different situations that often complicate real estate transactions. Without a guide who has dealt with these many challenges, you may suffer financial or legal problems.

Communication counts.

Not understanding what is happening creates problems. Staying in close contact with you and the representatives for the other side of a transaction will ensure complete understanding on both sides.

I am of the school that talking through the questions and challenges is the best way to understand your options.

Let's Talk!


My business is you.

As a former owner of a successful commercial business that I sold after 20 years, my understanding of putting the customer first is ingrained in me as a way of life. My job is to provide information, education, and guidance for you to make decisions based on knowledge.

I know how to get the job done. Marketing and selling your house and negotiating a contract are my strengths.

Let me show you!



Linda was very patient with me. She searched for the right home for me, not just a house. She had me look and feel the surroundings and see if it was a fit for me. If there was a step higher than Excellent, I would have checked that. She is someone I can call and say she is a friend.

- Carole Leo

Every interaction we had with Linda, from our first meeting until our conversation after the sales was completed was professional. Linda always followed up with buyer's agents after a showing. She was always monitoring the market and sharing that perspective with us. I would not have wanted to be on this journey with anyone other than Linda!

- David and Susan Hoff 

Thanks Linda, we really appreciate your guidance during these transactions when it’s such a stressful and emotional time. Thanks again for all your help.  We wouldn’t have made it here without you!!

- Dr and Dr Hughes

Linda and Sandy's team approach was remarkable. They were always easy to get a hold of and walked us through every aspect of the selling process. I will definitely use them on my next real estate purchase and have already referred them to several friends.

- Josh Vollmer

Linda- We wanted to thank you for helping us move this deal forward. Regardless of outcome, you've stuck with us. We appreciate your dedication and hard work.

- Tim Anderson

My agent was knowledgable at price and negotiation.

- Todd Macknik

We thank our lucky stars everyday - not even joking - that we got this house. I'll never forget that phone call from you. "Merry Christmas! You got the house." Never was I so shocked!! :) You're the best.

- Heather Macknik

Thanks for explaining that Linda, I appreciate your integrity and capability.

- David Smith

Congratulations Linda, one of your clients gave you 10/10 for the great service you provided them.  I thank you very much for your effort, and I hope these people refer you to many of their friends and family.  Again, I appreciate the quality of real estate work you do.

- Ken Raymond

Thank you for your persistence in getting this done.  I apologize for the few bumps we had along the way but you were key in getting this done.

- Jennifer Hudgins

The flowers are beautiful.  We have already used them to bring some color to our new place.  We look forward to many happy years there.  Thank you for all you did.

- Lisa and Bob Whitfield

Linda began working with us in 2009 to sell our home as we were at the brink of a divorce.  At that time Linda worked many long and tireless hours showing the home and she was always in contact with us with updates on the showings.  She also set up multiple caravans with other brokers to get the house the most visibility that she could in an effort to get the home sold.  After several months my husband and I decided to try marriage counseling and because of that we made the decision to take the house off the market.  The counseling was unsuccessful and we proceeded with a divorce, which lead us to reach out to Linda again to re-list the house.  One thing I would like to note is Linda’s professionalism and patience during this second time listing the house.  Things between my husband and I were extremely tense and we weren’t speaking to one another.  This put Linda in a very awkward position trying to communicate with both of us separately, which I know was extra work on her part, but she never hesitated to go the extra mile to keep us both informed of the progress.

- Jill Murphy

Can't believe it's over! Thank you so much for ALL your work I know you had to do more than  one job!!!

- Rachel Lewis

Thank you again, you will get many new clients through me over the years.

- Nick Rosati

One of the best salespersons I have ever had the privilege to manage.

- Maria Karnas McCormack

Linda is always accessible, professional and reliable. She helped us sell a house for well over asking price. Her advice to prepare the house was perfect. Linda keeps in touch and over communicates when the action starts to happen. I recommend Linda to friends and look forward to working with her again.

- Scott Lance

Linda provided my wife and I with excellent guidance through both the process of selling our home and building a new one. Her advice and insight allowed us to sell our home in less than two weeks for a very fair price.

- Dan Quirino

Linda Pelland is amazing! She will shoot you straight, get you the best deal possible and make sure to take care of things you wouldn’t know to think about if you haven’t owned beach property before. Highly recommend!

- Abbey Francis

Let's Talk!

I look forward to meeting with you to hear about your interests and needs for a home. You may not be ready to make an immediate move but let’s talk now to develop a plan that will bring you maximum results when the time is right.

Every house has a story, let us tell it and
Buyers will want to call it HOME!

Selling and/or buying a home is serious business, it is not like a TV show where everything happens in 30-60 minutes with little or no stress. Anyone that has experienced the process will understand the challenges that come with real estate transactions.

There are so many choices when embarking on the decision to leave an existing house and find a new one.

The ads for large companies tell you their numbers, #1 in sales, #1 in area, and #1 in houses sold. They don’t tell you whether their customers enjoyed the process.

Do you really want to be another number to them?

There are firms that advertise that they have been in business forever doing business as always. They show you photos of large expensive properties.

Is that you?

Do you need a Boutique service?………. Agents who will promptly return calls and answer your questions and concerns. Real service that focuses on you, the person not just another sale.
