Lynda began her R.E. career while her children were in college. Driving her desire to become an Agent were several difficult Real Estate transactions in California and other and other states she experienced as a client. The lack of transparency and poor listening skills on behalf of her Agents were at the root of all the problems. She knew she could make a difference and contribute to the industry by becoming a Standout Agent, establishing healthy, productive relationships with her clients.
Prior to Real Estate, Lynda worked in an orthodontic practice as a Treatment Coordinator, managing patients throughout their entire process. Patients ranged from small children to the elderly, making for incredibly rewarding work. Lynda attended graduate school for a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology in Indiana. While in school, she worked in sales at JC Penny, becoming a merchandise manager. She opened the North County Fair Women’s Division several years later.
