Linda began her real estate career in 1979, over 40 years ago. She was working at Atomic Energy as their Engineering Liaison for New Brunswick Power, after having left Kodak Canada when she moved to Mississauga from Toronto. Linda's entrepreneur aspirations drove her towards a real estate career and she realize the flexibility would allow her to have a family, an opportunity to raise her children yet still be able to have an active career.

Linda knew her sales would drop like a stone so personally met with Vice Presidents of the Major Financial Institutions (CIBC, TD, Scotia Bank, BMO, Laurentian Bank, Central Guaranty Trust, Home Savings & Loans) to pursuade them to list their Power of Sale properties with her. Linda received the contracts and sold over 153 Power of Sale properties representing these major Financial Institutions POS properties.
