Linda believes that client contact is crucial to a successful selling or buying experience. Committed referrals from her diverse client base are a testament to Linda's masterful handling of her client's individual needs.
Our move was unexpected due to a job change and we had only lived in our home for 18 months. Linda had helped us with the purchase of the home and I credit her dedication and superior negotiation skills on both transactions for helping us maximize our investment and actually turn a profit on the sale. Buying in our area is about the North Shore lifestyle and Linda truly knows how to sell that lifestyle.
Even more than the financial outcome, we were very grateful for the superior level of service that Linda provided. She took great care with her pricing recommendations and spent a lot of time working with us to get the house staged. Throughout the process she communicated with me effectively and made sure that every single agent or buyer that wanted to see our home could, even when it meant changing her own plans at the last minute. She understood that she wasn't just selling our house in Northfield, but she was selling New Trier schools, the park district, the country clubs and so much more. She made sure every buyer that came into our home was accompanied by her or by an agent who could communicate those selling points. She's a gem and I highly recommend her.

We have worked with Linda Martin to buy and sell many homes over the years. She has always impressed us with her energy, professionalism and personal attention. On many occasions, Linda has gone that extra mile to make things happen and has helped seal deals that were, frankly, at times unimaginable. Linda's attention to detail, flexibility, and endless patience, not to mention her broad experience, make her the excellent broker she is. It has been a gift to us to have Linda on our side, both as buyers and sellers; she truly is an asset to her clients to whom she gives her very, very best!

We have worked with Linda on buying a house and selling a house. Not every broker is good at both, but she's the exception who is. Her advice is sound. Her integrity is superb, her knowledge is impressive and she's fun to be with. We recommend her highly.

There is no one more attentive or understands this area more than Linda. When selling a home, she recommends how to stage it with great people to help you make it look like Architechtual Digest. She keeps you informed along the way and has a reservoir of home experts to refer to on a moments notice. When buying, she is up to the minute on new homes on the market and always makes herself available to show as soon as humanly possible. Anything you need, she usually has an answer.

We were new to the area and she really took the time to make sure we saw everything that there was to see so we could make a good decision about which North Shore community we wanted to live in. She not only showed us homes, but showed us all of the other parts of the North Shore lifestyle - parks, schools, clubs, good restaurants. She's a very caring and warm person and I'm so glad to know her.

Linda was considerate and patient and did very well in negotiating the price I wanted for my house. I would definitely hire her again as my agent and have recommended her to friends.
My in-laws used Linda to purchase their first home 30 years ago and their current home nearly 20 years ago and highly recommended her. Now we will keep Linda as our go-to realtor for our future homes as well.
Linda was amazing every step of the way. From the very beginning we felt that she gave us the same attention as if we were purchasing a home that was 10x our budget.
As first time home buyers, we really weren't sure what to expect. But Linda took the time to walk us through the entire process of buying a home--from figuring out our house needs to determining a budget and applying for a mortgage. She is extremely responsive to texts, emails, phone calls, etc., day or night, weekends and holidays. We always felt that she was on top of everything and was there when we needed her. We could always rely on her for an unbiased opinion but we never felt like she pushed us one way or another.
We could not have asked for a better realtor and a better person to have met through our home search. Linda treated us like family and we absolutely adore her. If you're looking for an honest, loving realtor who will fight for her clients, look no further than Linda Martin.

North Shore native that Linda is, she keeps abreast of everything with such passion... she is the go to person with an incredible wealth of knowledge regarding schools, communities, zoning changes, shopping, etc. With the busy schedule she maintains, her prompt response to our emails or voicemails truly amazed us; never too busy to give advice and provide current market statistics. She is a genuinely caring person and a very tech savvy agent with sophisticated negotiating skills.

Linda represented us in the purchase of a condo in an adjacent community. She was on top of the entire transaction, providing excellent negotiating advice, excellent references for other professional assistance and seeing the deal through on all fronts. It was a pleasure to work with her.
