Christine & Ed Z.

My husband and I have become successful real estate investors thanks to the guidance of Linda Pond. We inherited my childhood home from my parents, which I had a deep emotional attachment to. Unfortunately, we had to sell the home and the proceeds went into the bank. My parents had worked hard and any decision on what to do with the proceeds weighed heavily on me, as I did not want to make a mistake. The proceeds sat idle for a few years because of my fear of investing and potentially losing my parent's investment. We reached out to Linda for guidance because of her extensive knowledge of real estate investing and transactions and her many years of experience and success in the market. During our consultation with her, she went over the different options on how to turn those idle proceeds into a successful investment.

We reached out to Linda for guidance because of her extensive knowledge of real estate investing and transactions and her many years of experience and success in the market. During our consultation with her, she went over the different options on how to turn those idle proceeds into a successful investment. She encouraged us to overcome our fear of investing and we left our consultation more confident and knowledgeable on how to invest our money and make great financial decisions. With Linda's guidance, we purchased a rental property that has been so successful and profitable for us. That investment grew and we recently were able to acquire another property, moving us up to the next level home in real estate investing. We are grateful to Linda for giving us the guidance, confidence, and knowledge we needed to be successful real estate investors.

Linda has completed over eight real estate transactions for my wife and me over the past 15 years. The transactions ranged from $400,000 to $3,500,000, from Gilroy, Berkeley, to Napa. In each case, regardless of complexities and deal size, Linda gave us solid advice throughout each transaction ranging from pricing, marketing, negotiations, and transaction closure on both the buy and sell sides. In addition, the degree of professionalism and attention to detail took a lot of the stress associated with real estate off of us. It goes without saying that we would recommend Linda for any real estate needs, whether one is looking at a personal residence or an investment property.

Buyer and Seller

I have bought and sold over a dozen properties in my life and never have I met a more phenomenal and competent real estate agent. Linda has knowledge about how to buy and sell real estate that I have not seen in the past. We have worked together for years and I am impressed every time with how she is able to represent me in every role. Buying or selling a house or ranch has huge implications and it's crucial that I have someone that I trust and know will protect me. I HIGHLY recommend Linda!!!

In 2011 my wife and I began acquiring properties in the Gilroy area as core holdings in our investment portfolio. By utilizing Linda Pond’s real estate expertise we feel we acquired quality properties, at great prices, in very sound locations. Linda’s ability to identify properties, work with sellers to get a contract, and get transactions closed in what is a very difficult market proved invaluable to meeting our real estate investment needs. Anyone who is considering a real estate purchase as their personal residence or as an investment opportunity should consider Linda as their real estate advisor and broker.

Linda doesn't just LIST your house, she SELLS your house. We were continually impressed by her hands-on approach, from the initial conversation to the staging to walking through prospective buyers, to completing the ins and outs of the final sale, she went above and beyond every step of the way. She listed our house for a fair price, went through where to invest AND not to waste money, then went out of her way to ensure we got top dollar and negotiated the best deal for us, both on terms and price. We couldn't have asked for a better listing agent and wholeheartedly recommend Linda to list your home.

My family and I can’t imagine our house-shopping experience without Linda. She’s been highly detail-oriented throughout the process, and patiently answered my many questions, and it’s clear that she’s accumulated extensive knowledge, having been in this business for decades. Overall, I felt very supported and like I could depend on her when issues inevitably occurred along the way. Thanks to Linda, I now have a beautiful retirement home that I’m incredibly excited about, and I’m so grateful for all her efforts!

It had been four years since we were looking for a country home. Through this search, we came across Linda, who exactly understood what we were looking for. In a short period of a few months, with her help, we got our dream home. In the entire house-hunting process, the only thing we had to do was to select the property. All the before and after steps were taken care of by Linda: understanding our priorities for the property, finding and presenting us with the right properties to look at, educating us about the property areas in great detail, connecting with the seller’s agent, creating rapport with them, finding all the hidden cues between what is not said, presenting with all the history, geography and neighborhood of the property, suggesting to bid with the right price to do all the paperwork accurately. Linda took care of everything for us. Thank you for finding us our Dream House…

I have the utmost confidence in Linda as a real estate agent. She is VERY professional, competent, and knowledgeable. Her expertise and integrity were truly amazing! She helped me with some very challenging negotiations on the sale of our family ranch and I would definitely choose to work with her again on any real estate transaction.

She has marketed our property not only locally but through publications covering the Bay Area and beyond. Our property has unique qualities that are not readily apparent, but Linda has been able to showcase all aspects of it to interested parties.
