05/10/2020 - amarkj86 Sold a home in 2020 in Newington, CT Linda is incredible. She was way more than I was expecting in a listing agent. Have you ever heard of a real estate agent ironing your curtains before listing your home? Exactly. But that is just a glimpse of what you can expect when you list your home with her. Linda came highly recommended from my previous buyers only agent and my first impression was wow, she is a powerhouse. By that I mean she had great energy, a strong knowledge and experience in real estate, and proud enough to tell you like it is. Some agents just tell you what you want to hear just to get the listing- not Linda because she truly cares and loves what she does. If you listen to her tips and what to do to get your house ready, she will get it done. It took about a week for my house to get staged (and wow she did so amazing that it didn’t even look like the same house) and then it sold within 24 hours. I was very nervous selling with Covid-19 beginning to spread and we actually listed the house the day businesses were supposed to shut down but because Linda was on top of things, I trusted her and we had over twenty showings in a 24 hour period and 8 offers. The house was sold 7k over asking as a cash deal with no contingencies. Linda, I cannot thank you enough. So with writing this review to help others, if you are looking for someone with experience, compassion, amazing negotiating skills, and just an all around incredible person who is direct and to the point, give her a call. She also includes free staging which is so important nowadays. On your end, be ready to be given honest feedback to what you can do to make your house sell faster and for more. And if you heed her advice, you’ll be very thankful when your house sells and that you went with Linda!

Linda was professional and got the house sold almost immediately after it was listed. Her advice on staging and what needed to be done to sell the house were very helpful.

Bought and sold a Condo home in 2017 in Manchester, CT
Linda Johnson is a talented and take-no-nonsense real estate agent. She both helped me purchase and sell my condo as well as help me along the way when I was renting. She knows every electrician, contractor, management, and serviceperson in the state. She made next to nothing on the purchase and sale of my property based on the value, but continued to treat me like her highest commission client. I am forever indebted to her for her expertise, friendship and passion. You won't find a better realtor anywhere!

Sold a home in 2018 in West Hartford, CT
I was very impressed with Linda's professionalism, knowledge of the local area and real estate market, savvy advice, honesty, attention to detail, and strong, positive relationships with others in her profession. I also enjoyed Linda's friendly, easygoing, optimistic personality, and "unflappability" whenever something unexpected occurred (which was not often!). I was very pleased with the staging and presentation of my property. Because I was relocating out of state before the closing date for the sale of my house, I had to rely on Linda to arrange and manage contractor visits and other final details after I left. She took care of everything, up to and after the closing. I would highly recommend her.Less

Linda was great with her expertise of the local areas and control over the process, as it can get a bit overwhelming. She cares about finding you the right home and will definitely put in the time regardless of price range. I would recommend her for looking for a home or listing a home.

We had nothing but a great experience with Linda working through the sale of my elderly in-law's home. Linda was responsive, deferential to my in-laws, asserted the benefit of her experience when it was needed most, and took charge of the process from start to finish. She had terrific knowledge of the West Hartford, CT real estate market and used that to our advantage. She was realistic and candid when she needed to be. I can't say enough good things about Linda's professionalism and how that contributed to a great outcome on the sale of the home.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Bloomfield, CT
What impressed me about Linda's work was, once we got things started, she lined up many showings and got my house rented quickly. Within two days of finishing the paperwork she had lined up 6 showings. The house was rented within a week.

Linda is amazing! She did a beautiful job staging my home, researching the area and giving me advice. All the while she was available for my questions and regularly kept me up to date on everything going on. She is very hands on and my home sold faster than I ever could have expected. Not to mention she was a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough good things about her. Highly recommend!

There are no words that could adequately express my gratitude for what Linda has done. Firstly, she’s very reachable, at whatever time of the day/night, via phone or text or email. Secondly, not only she understood our needs and helped us buying a (single-family) home, she worked extra hard to sell our old house (two-family dwelling). She gave great inputs on what kind of improvements needed vs what was not vital. She has a great taste in terms of interior design and staged the house so beautifully, and I’m sure it was physically challenging to go up and down the stairs between the two units. She works with a great photographer and is well-connected to other agents. We got an offer within a couple of days the house went on the market. She then helped us meeting buyer’s requests (post-inspection items) - she knows many contractors, who gave us good prices, and was on top of things. Lastly, she was more than just an agent. She handled the sensitive situation with the house (being a two-family and had a resident living in one unit) professionally and smoothly. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

After unsuccessfully listing my mother's house with another agent, I was told to go to Linda. She was fantastic. She came in and assessed the situation, and had a painter there within an hour to make recommendations. She went far beyond what I might reasonably have expected, and more-than-earned every penny of her commission. We had an agreement of sale within 11 days of listing.

This was our third transaction with Linda Johnson. She listed and sold our condo. Knowing the market and what it would take to get it done quickly, she made the right suggestions for cleaning, painting, staging, photos, open houses, and pricing. She has the know-how, she is a total professional and will keep the process moving with out losing her sense of humor. She makes it all look easy and just gets it done. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with!! Linda provided caring, responsive, professional and personalized service every step of the way. She went way above and beyond the basics, to ease the way through a potentially challenging and stressful process. Linda is a wealth of information and is generous in sharing resources to address the various aspects of moving (mortgage broker, attorney, handyman, etc.). She communicates easily with these other professionals as needed to smooth the way. I feel so grateful to have had Linda as my ally and guide in this process of finding my perfect new home!!!

Linda is an absolute professional and just a pleasure to work with. We had to sell our condo within 30 days and Linda was up to the challenge and sold the house! She kept us informed about the process answering any questions we had and worked tirelessly to help coordinate all aspects of the sale and closing of our house. We are extremely grateful for her and so happy we found her! Give her a call for all your real estate needs, now!

We have worked with Linda for years! She has shown us many properties here in the Greater Hartford Area. Recently we asked about homes on the shoreline and although she doesn't usually sell in that area, she made sure to find listings that were appropriate. We found the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood and she negotiated a fair price below what we were willing to pay. She is the ultimate professional and can recommend anyone in the trades to help with after market issues. We are now using her to sell our condo here in Rocky Hill. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

Linda Johnson is a true real estate professional. Through diligent research and excellent staging she put my home in the best position to sell quickly and at a fair price to me. She was in constant contact through the negotiation process and helped me to sell my house in three days. Linda was there to offer guidance through appraisals and home inspections. In short, she was by my side throughout the entire selling process. I could not have asked for better service from a realtor.

Linda's expertise was unsurmountable in the sale of my home. The staging of my home was exquisite and done with such ease. Thus my home sold within hours of being posted on MLS. Linda's professionalism and knowledge are top notch. Hats off to you Linda. You are the best from all the rest and I am forever grateful for all that you did to make the sale of my home a breeze.

I can't say enough about Linda. This woman lives to sell real estate and not the other way around. She treats your home as if it was her own. Her knowledge of the market and what it will take to sell a home are outstanding. Linda leaves no stone unturned; from listing to staging to negotiating and selling. My home was unoccupied during the winter while I was living elsewhere and Linda even checked on it regularly to make sure all was well before it sold. There are many real estate agents out there, but there is only one Linda Johnson.

I have owned homes in Charleston SC, Santa Cruz CA, New Canaan CT and West Hartford and can say without reservation that working with Linda on several home purchases and sales in West Hartford is by far the most rewarding experience of all. She becomes more than your agent but your personal support and guiding hand. As gentle as she is as a person she is also the strongest advocate for you in a sale or purchase, what a combination. There are many agents in the area but there is only one Linda Johnson. Look no further, she is the very best in every way.

Linda Johnson is one of the most professional and hard working individuals we have ever met. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to get your house sold. She staged our home impeccably, taking it from ordinary to extraordinary. She was prompt in returning phone calls and answering our questions. She is honest and just a salt of the earth type of person. You can't go wrong with Linda. She is the best in her field. We are so happy we found her.

Linda is wonderful to work with and knows the CT housing market inside and out. She's also quite savvy when it comes to marketing a property to sell. We met Linda seven years ago when we bought our house and maintained a friendly relationship over the years. She was our obvious choice when it was time to sell. We relocated out of state, in the winter and were under contract within 45 days! She is professional and straightforward - I highly recommend Linda without hesitation.

I have recently sold a home with Linda. I have taken on the process of house buying and selling many times in my life. The process with Linda, by far,exceeded my expectations.she was an absolute pleasure to work along side with. Her professionalism, knowledge of the housing market certainly aided in the quick sale of the property. She worked hard to get it done and guided us with permission on how to get things prepared.

There is no better realtor! I was an emotional uninformed wreck having to sell my mom's house after her passing. Linda carefully walked me through the process (minus a car salesperson mentality), monitored the property in my absence, and was in constant contact with me every step of the way. It is my honor and privilege to recommend her without reservation!!!!

Linda helped my fiancé and I buy our first house. We couldn't have been happier. She was very responsive and helpful. She was quick to jump on newly listed properties if we asked her to schedule a showing and to obtain answers to any questions we had. I would highly recommend Linda to any prospective buyers or sellers. Her professionalism and knowledge well exceeded my expectations. Thank you Linda!

Our family has bought AND sold homes with Linda. She works harder than any agent I have met and genuinely cares about her clients. After selling a home to my parents, she helped them pick out new fixtures, carpeting, and more. Many of Linda's clients are now her personal, longstanding friends. That speaks to the level of service she provides. I recommend her absolutely and without any reservation.

My family has purchased and sold several homes with Linda over a number of years. She is highly professional, hard-working, and goes far beyond what the typical agent does to ensure that you are satisfied with the results, as buyer OR seller. She has a great deal of experience and many of her clients are repeat buyers and sellers like us. I am please to offer my highest recommendation of Linda without reservation.

I would highly recommend Linda Johnson. We were looking for a home close to my family farm, in South Glastonbury. Linda helped us find the perfect home, that was within our relatively modest budget (not an easy feat in South Glastonbury). She was always quick to answers calls or emails and explained the process to us at every step of our home-buying experience.

Linda showed us a variety of properties and helped us weigh the various advantages they possessed. She seemed to understand the needs we had in a difficult and complicated relocation.Once we chose our new home, she supported the renovations we wanted. She did not just disappear after we closed, but helped us find local resources and workmen.
