Linda  is experienced in all areas of real estate, although historic homes and architecture are her specialty.  Whether she is selling a La Jolla oceanfront home that was in the same family for over 90 years, a vine-covered historic cottage, ocean view condominiums along the coast, a one-of-a-kind 1920s 6-acre estate in San Diego, or a private island paradise in Panama, her experience in marketing unique properties has helped her clients reach their goals through world-wide exposure and personalized service.

A Realtor since 1990 and trained in historic real estate by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in Washington, D.C, Linda has represented homes designed by early San Diego architects, Edgar V. Ullrich, Thomas Shepherd, Hurlbert & Tiefeld, Florence Palmer, Alberto O. Treganza, Richard Requa, Harold Abrams and John Lloyd Wright, just to name a few.  Her knowledge of architecture has also helped her assist homeowner's of homes designed by award winning contemporary architects.

A historic homeowner since 1989 (The Morgan - Larkins - Marrone Residence, Historic Site #226), Linda is an expert in understanding both the historic designation process and the Mills Act property tax benefit. In recognition of her expertise and knowledge of San Diego's history and historic properties, she was appointed by the Mayor to serve on the City of San Diego's Historical Resources Board in 2008 and served on the Board until 2016.

 An active member of the community, Linda has lived in La Jolla's Barber Tract since 1987.  She has served on the Board of the La Jolla Historical Society and in 1999 she co-founded the Secret Garden Tour of La Jolla that continues to attract hundreds of visitors to La Jolla each spring.  She is a life-member of the La Jolla Historical Society, the Village Garden Club and Save Our Heritage Foundation, as well as being a member of the Friends of the Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills, the Nation Trust for Historic Preservation and the California Preservation Foundation.  

An avid gardener, Linda's historic La Jolla garden was featured on the Secret Garden tour in 2001 and has been published in both local and national magazines.  She writes a garden column for the La Jolla Village News and her stories about La Jolla's history, homes and gardens have been published both locally and nationally.  Take a tour of Linda's garden by clicking on the garden gate located the right side of this page.
