Linda is a Broker Asssociate, REALTOR®, has earned the CDPE© designation (Certified Distressed Property Expert), and has been an AWARD WINNING agent since 1992.
Linda began her real estate career in Dallas, TX, in April 1992... but the following month moved to Cleveland, OH (following her husband, Michael's, change of ministry) where she became one of Smythe, Cramer Co's TOP PRODUCERS (one of the top independent real estate companies in America).
The family moved again in December 2000 to the Jacksonville, FL area and settled in Eagle Harbor, one of NE Florida's largest and finest planned communities (among many). There Linda joined Watson Realty Corp. (once again, one of the largest and most successful independent real estate companies in America -- in fact, Watson Realty Corp. lists and sells more than four times the combined total of its four top competitors in the NE Florida area) and became a TOP PRODUCER once again.
Linda is originally from the Lapeer, MI area (about 60 miles north of Detroit and 20 miles east of Flint). She was a candidate in the 1970 Miss Michigan Pageant and, in fact, met her husband of nearly 40 years as the result of a full page article that the Pontiac Press (now the Oakland Press in Pontiac, MI) had printed about her -- a paper that Michael's parents mailed him during his last tour of duty with in South Korea in 1968-69. Michael, of course, wrote this interesting, successful (Michael figured that she had to have been successful to be a contender in the Miss Michigan Pageant), and exceptionally attractive woman. He returned home in October 1969; met Linda for the first time at Western Michigan University (where she had just begun her freshman year) after exchanging tapes, photos, and letters for 8-9 months; and they were married in July 1970 following the Miss Michigan Pageant.
Following her husband's graduation from U of M in December 1973, Michael was hired by IBM as a computer salesman and they moved to Southern California (Irvine/Newport Beach area) in July 1974 with their two boys (Nathan, age 3+, and Alex, age 1+) in tow for the next three years.
In 1977, IBM transferred Michael, Linda, and their two sons to IBM's Southfield, MI office where they purchased a new home about 19 miles north in the affluent suburb of Rochester in northern Oakland County.
