When Linda was in high school, she proudly declared her intention to pursue a career in real estate to her guidance counsellor.
“Real Estate?”, her guidance counsellor repeated, “…that’s a sales profession…you have to be pushy and aggressive in sales, you’re not a salesperson Linda, you’re a helper! Why don’t you go into a helping profession?”
And so, at the guidance of her counsellor, Linda obtained her Bachelor of Social Work degree, and then a Master of Counselling Psychology degree. She dedicated 10 years helping individuals achieve their wellness goals in the counselling and mental health fields; and continues to seek volunteer opportunities in these areas.
After buying and selling real estate as a client however, Linda realized that real estate IS a helping profession. Her conviction was that it absolutely needed to be service first, and sales second.
This realization led her to pursue a career as a Realtor®, so that she can be a helper to individuals, couples, and families aspiring to achieve their real estate dreams.
As a counsellor, Linda honed her ability to establish trust and rapport in order to deliver an experience that is truly client centred. She proudly brings this approach into real estate because it truly is about you, and your goals.
