Judy and Jon, Los Angeles, CA
It has been our very good fortune to have had Linda Painter for our realtor. We owned a house that was probably among the most difficult of its type to sell - big, remote, and in a town where the number of turnovers is low, compared to the average for beautiful coastal-Maine property, due to any number of social factors. When we bought the house, it had already been on the market for a number of years. Naturally, we were worried when we put it up for sale that we wouldn't be able to sell it at all, given the current market, particularly because of where it was located.
Linda's unflagging efforts and creative marketing helped us to have a great sale, which gave us a handsome profit and a closing with minimal difficulty. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone seeking a responsible, ethical broker, who treats the sale of your house with no less care than if she were selling one for her own family." back to top

"We cannot use enough superlatives to express our gratitude for all of Linda's help in our dream real estate purchase. She was an amazing and energetic partner in our search for the right place from start to finish. With an attentive eye on our criteria and budget, Linda continually provided her expertise, encouragement, and resources in the search process. She was always readily available and, once we found the ideal property, she was tireless in helping to pull together all those details and loose ends necessary for the closing. And it seems like there were a million of them! We cannot imagine being able to achieve this lifelong dream without her. Thanks Linda!! " back to top

"Having heard for over a year that due to a struggling housing market for sellers, as first time home buyers, it was an ideal time for us to purchase a house. Little did we know just what to expect as we took the plunge into the long and sometimes arduous mortgage loan process; and even though we were faced with literally hundreds of choice decisions, the one decision that came easiest was that of finding a reputable, trusted real estate broker to assist us in our search: Linda Painter Real Estate. Looking back, we honestly believe without a doubt that we would never have succeeded in our quest for a home if it had not been for the professional environment, experienced guidance, and friendly atmosphere, that Linda Painter and her wonderful team showed us on a daily basis. Even today, months after we closed, Linda Painter is still in our lives as not only a highly respected Real Estate Broker whom we greatly admire (and strongly recommend), but as a close, trusted and dependable friend. With the ever changing requirements that faced us on a daily basis with our chosen mortgage company, posing constant struggles that would force even the most staunch and dedicated of home buyers to simply throw up their hands in defeat and walk away from the entire ordeal, we found an endless source of support, reassurance, advocacy, and even much needed humor that cheered us on many occasion. When the questions started to outweigh the answers, Linda Painter was there. After running up against wall after wall from inexperienced, non-invested loan company representatives, Linda Painter was there. Overwhelmed with nearly impossible loan conditions that needed to be met each and every day, Linda Painter was there. She went to bat for us time and time again, and quickly showed us from the very beginning that we always could breathe easier up against any new obstacle with her dedicated motto: "Don't worry ~ I'm on it!" More importantly, when everyone else went home at the end of the workday, leaving us completely cut off until the next morning, Linda Painter worked round the clock, providing instant assistance and support at any hour we were in need. Her personal belief of putting her clients first was evident from day one, and has remained in place long after our closing. While other companies spend valuable time and money promoting themselves with advertisements boasting their home sales, Linda Painter devotes her time in placing a name and face on each of her sales. The reality of her realty is that your happiness is her happiness.
