About Me

I am a former Registered Nurse, Small Business Owner and Convention Planner. I have been a full time Realtor helping buyers and sellers in the Western Suburbs of Chicago since 1997. I was with Coldwell Banker from January 1997 until October of 2005 during which time I was a consistent multi-million dollar producer. I was awarded the Diamond Society Award in 2000, 2001 and 2002 and was a member of the International President's circle in 2003 and 2004. I am a graduate of the Accredited Buyers Realtor course (ABR designation) and CNS (Certified Negotiation Specialist). I received the Golden Rule Realtor Award in July 2004 from the Realtor Association of West/South Suburban Chicagoland. I joined Platinum Partners Realtors in November 2005.

Whether you are buying or selling, my  goal is to exceed your expectations at all times. Having bought and sold many  homes personally, I understand real estate from the consumer's point of view. My strength is communication and I will keep you updated and return calls promptly throughout the transaction.

Buying?

My low pressure approach with buyers and attention to detail emphasizes service rather than sales. I will give you the information and tools you need to make wise real estate decisions and I will guide you through every aspect of the transaction. Call me to set up a buyer's consultation.

Selling?  

Let me provide with a Free Market Analysis of your home and outline my aggressive marketing plan. I will be happy to  consult with you prior to selling to help prepare your home for maximum appeal to the buyer.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Woodridge, IL.

We had a fantastic experience with Linda. She was recommended to us by two separate family friends. We were first time buyers and Linda was so helpful as we negotiated the home buying process for the first time. She provided a nice perspective when we walked through homes often pointing out things we did not see or think about. I would highly recommend working with Linda!  More Less

Sold a Other home in 2009 in Naperville, IL.

Linda was fully vested in our home purchase and selling process, sharing not only her wealth of knowledge but also clearly communicating every step along the way. Linda's responsiveness to every email and call, sometimes late at night, kept our search on track. Linda has the local market knowledge as well as knows what levers to pull in the negotiation process and when.

I would reccommend working with Linda to my family and friends and hope to use her once we outgrow the perfect house she helped us find!

Sold a home in 2009.

Linda provided me with professional assistance in both the purchase of property in Westmont IL(her listing).She impressed me, and then I asked her to list for sale my property in Darien, IL.It took took a year in the low point of the recent recession, During that time I spent a number of consecutive winter months away from the Chicago area. Linda showed and watched the property for me while I was gone and kept me appraised of her showings and market sales by EMail.. Upon my return she advised me on what I should do to the property to help sell it . She also gave me the names of contractors to do the work. I did as she suggested and believe it or not the property sold in two weeks after the improvements were made. She is a personable. professional hard working Agent and I plan on using her again in the near future. I would also like to mention that the 4/color brochures she designed were very well done. One other thing, I asked her when I bought the property in Westmont that was her listing. if she could represent me in the through the purchase . She advised me that it was not acceptable for an agent to represent both parties in a negotiation,Of course she was right but, to me, it was an indication of her character. I have done business with many RE agents across the country (California, Florida, Arizona, Illinois) but I consider Linda Hinkle the BEST! Rspectfully, Lester A. Kraft . . . .  More Less
