I was referred to Linda from my cousin for whom she sold a property in Palm Beach and his experience was positive and effortless. He loved her straight forward and direct style. Linda was an incredible broker to work with selling my condominium in Palm Beach. She is vastly knowledgable given her long history in the Palm Beach real estate market. She is talented, highly skillful and conscientious as a broker. She provided us with the information we needed as we considered marketing our condominium for more than a year before we were ready to sell, and her patience along the way was greatly appreciated. When we were ready, her expertise to assist us through the sale negotiation and closing (on a very quick sale!) was reassuring and supportive. She is always immediately responsive and that is a wonderful partnership to have in a broker. We also loved working with Linda and would not hesitate to work with her again. — Beth Fishman, Concord, MA

*****************************************

I have worked with Linda for several years on different houses and condos in the PB area and I have nothing but praise for her. Her keen attention to detail, energetic personality, and willingness to go above and beyond for her clients make her one of the best in the business. The open communication between all parties is also a refreshing change of pace. Additionally, her extensive list of quality recommendations that cover anyone from gardeners to air conditioning services have always been a pleasure with whom to work as well. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone looking to have a positive broker experience in PB. She doesn’t disappoint. — Mr. Leonard Zmijewski, Itasca, IL

Tom O’Malley was happy to talk about Linda R. Olsson: “I’ve known Linda for almost 10 years,” he said. “Linda is a professional in the true sense of the word. She knows her market, has worked hard to provide me with market data on a regular basis, and is available on short notice to provide information, advice, etc.” He added: “She has been honest and straightforward, which are essential characteristics for anyone I do business with.” – Read more…

We worked with Linda in advance of coming to Palm Beach. We gave her a thorough criteria of what we were interested in. Knowing what you want and communicating it always helps. Upon arrival in Palm Beach, Linda had an excellent selection of properties for us to review. She showed us the variables in the market by location, style, and price. Within two days we found what we wanted. She is extremely tenacious, quick, and a pleasure to work with. -Mr. & Mrs. Feldman

*****************************************

Linda managed to find the perfect Palm Beach house for us which suited our needs beautifully. Not only was she effective negotiating, but also kept the lines of communication open during the entire process. We were very happy to use her and would refer her in the future. C. Pinkney, Toronto

Linda is one of the most diligent and service-oriented real estate agents I have ever worked with. She pays attention to client needs, works hard to find properties that will be of interest and is very thoughtful about which properties are a good use of a client’s time. She is also very current on the Palm Beach real estate market. I have known her in a residential real estate context. She found me a rental apartment a few years ago and also found my wife and I our current home. She’s great, and you will be happy to have worked with her. – Z. Shipley, Palm Beach

*****************************************

Linda and I many years ago worked at the same law firm. She had great intelligence and initiative, and undertook many projects successfully. For the last twenty years or more, I have been in contact with her in the real estate field, where she is a licensed Florida broker. She is truly one of the smartest, most innovative and hardest working realtors I have ever met. Her success rate is fabulous, and she knows real estate law. It is a privilege to have a transaction where Linda is the broker. I recommend her with the highest enthusiasm. J. Tuthill, Lawyer, Palm Beach

*****************************************

She has proven herself a fantastic entrepreneur and real estate professional in a highly competitive market. – C. Love, North Carolina

*****************************************

Linda, I agree with all the compliments your clients/comrades have said about you. You are a knowledgeable, caring and energetic real-estate broker. I’ve lived in Palm Beach for about 35 years, and know so many brokers, but I chose you. You know what else? Other area brokers only have good things to say about you, which speaks volumes. – C. Wilm, Palm Beach

*****************************************

As a Leading Lender here in Palm Beach and other high end areas, we have the opportunity to work with many realtors. Linda has always impressed us with her true deep knowledge of the local Real Estate market – as well as her professionalism and commitment to her clients. Always looking out for their interest.

Thornton, MET Interiors Palm Beach

*****************************************

After a few false starts with other brokers, we found your ad in the WSJ and decided that anybody who had the brains to advertise in that paper must have a lot of energy. We were right! You have boundless energy, and you went the extra mile in every way, patiently showing us every condominium for sale that fit our criteria in the town of PB and then WPB, then every house and condo that was available from Manalapan to Jupiter Island and then every house, lot and hovel available at the north end where we eventually bought what we decided would be a tear down. You found us our architect, our caretaker (your brother), the dog groomer, the dentist and the hairdresser. You negotiated every aspect of the closing, forcing the seller to remove her garbage from the property, which she had no intention of doing, and, once the place had been cleaned out, convinced us that it would be completely habitable with a fresh coat of paint. Why didn’t we think of that? Now, we can relax and see how we like life in the north end and work on our plans to build while living in our house, which may very well be just fine with some R&R. I think you helped find us one of the best deals in Palm Beach, and you and George worked together flawlessly. There was no pressure to buy. The only pressure was what you put on yourself to find what you thought would make us happy. It seemed that you had all the time in the world to spend finding the perfect thing, and I don’t know how you do it, but you do it better than any broker we’ve ever worked with. You were 100% there for us , and you still are after the closing. I have already referred several people I know to you with assurances that you are the “best broker in Palm Beach”. Thanks, Linda, for all that you have done for us!  Betsy and George Kallop, Jackson, Wyoming

*****************************************

Congratulations, we are closed! Linda, you have done a great job for us.  I really appreciate all of your help.  I think we started coming to PB around 6 years ago, so it has been a long road.  Nice to see it pay off. Looking forward to seeing you when we are in town over Canadian Thanksgiving. – G. Belsher, Toronto, Canada

*****************************************

A terrific broker – and friend… I can see clearly why you are a successful professional woman. I very much appreciated your telephone call, “checking up on me,” and realized I might send you these photos which Paul sent me, after working on the apartment and helping the movers over several weeks.  All this was done over the telephone and by email, and your recommendation was a splendid one. Like you, Paul has inherited us for life. – J. Herzog, Southport, CT

*****************************************

Linda is a dedicated and resourceful marketer of Palm Beach real estate. If you’re looking to sell a property, I suggest you contact her. She’s the best we’ve ever worked with. I always enjoy reviewing Linda’s email newsletters, and appreciate her efforts on behalf of my mom. She really is a natural marketer: smart, focused, innovative, and resourceful.- S. Fischer, Winston-Salem, NC

*****************************************

I wanted to thank you for handling our sale. I knew years ago when I first met you at an open house, you were a winner. You sold us “Trade Winds” which we have loved and enjoyed for the last 8 years. Your negotiating skills shined through in getting us that wonderful property.

Linda, the way you marketed the sale during some trying times did not go unnoticed. You delivered on everything you said. As you know, I oversee thousands of real estate associates and I am glad I had you to handle our sale.

Donna and I look forward to purchasing again in Palm Beach, and to another positive experience with you. – P. Christman – Bedminster, NJ

*****************************************

I just wanted to share with potential sellers (and purchasers) what a terrific job Linda did on selling and marketing our unit at the Kirkland house. We had several offers in a short period of time and she worked so carefully and diligently on keeping the potential deals together. I felt we got 100% of her attention. Linda also did a wonderful job of staging our unit to make it have a “universal appeal”. Her assistance with our move out with one week’s notice between Christmas and New Years was invaluable. I would definitely use her again. – W. Miller/Palm Beach, Washington D.C.

*************************************

Would I buy a home with the guidance of Linda R. Olsson, Inc.? I did.

Would I recommend Linda Olsson and her company to friends and family? I did.

After meeting Linda through a friend years ago (who also purchased a home from Linda), I knew that when we were ready to buy a home in the Palm Beach area, Linda would be our realtor. Over a two year period, Linda patiently showed us properties, always sharing her knowledge of the building, it’s location and the general condition of the property with her unflappable directness and refreshing honesty. In addition, in this ever changing real estate market, we truly valued Linda’s expertise and professionalism.

She understood our budget and additional requirements. As our needs became better defined and we narrowed down our search, Linda immediately contacted us when she thought the perfect home for us had become available. She was right–it was exactly what we wanted and we purchased it immediately.

In addition, Linda Olsson Realty also provided us with banking advice, contractors for renovation, and even drapery and handyman contacts to make the transition so much more manageable. – L. Fleischman/Greenwich, CT

*************************************

I  have  known  and  worked  with Linda Olsson  for   many years. She is  hardworking, professional  and  tireless. She  goes  the  extra  mile  for  her  clients whom many  times  become  life long  friends. I  rely on Linda for all my  real estate advice and  purchases in Palm  Beach. – Countess Barel di Sant Albano/Torino, Italy

*************************************

When I started looking for an apartment in January 2008, I called Linda from an ad she had in The Robb Report magazine. Linda stuck with me for over a year, showing me condominiums in Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Sunny Isles and Jupiter. Never getting frustrated, she continually sent me new listings, re-pricing of existing listings and new ideas. Knowing my wife and my likes and dislikes helped her get us information on the units she knew we might like, avoiding others, not wasting our time, for the sake of a sale. Finally in January 2009, she showed us the exact unit we were looking for. Right style, right location, right price and right community. She guided us through the settlement process and handled all the details. We settled in April 2009 and have enjoyed the apartment ever since. Linda really represented us to the fullest extent of her ability and she truly “Never Gave Up.” -J. Whalen/ Bethesda, MA

***********************************

We had the pleasure to meet Linda twenty years ago on our first visit to Palm Beach. Discovering Palm Beach with Linda made it a double inspiration. Over the years while looking for a unique oceanfront estate we were lucky to have Linda’s help in finding us the best available rentals in Palm Beach. And finally, one day we found our dream home, it was there, on the beach waiting for us… needless to say, apart from being a true inspiration, Linda turned out to be the best realtor we have ever met. We very much appreciate her patience, genuine honestly, hard work and kindness. Today as we enjoy our oceanfront estate we also enjoy Linda’s friendship and we are proud to recommend her highly without hesitation.‎ – L. Jacobs/ Greenwich, CT

***********************************

Linda worked with us for almost two years, searching for a home in Palm Beach. I began looking for a modest condominium, but during the search my needs changed. The objective changed to a larger condominium, then a townhouse and finally a house. Through it all, Linda remained patient, energetic and very helpful. There was never pressure just to get a deal done. She really wanted us to find something that would make us very happy. Linda is very knowledgeable about Palm Beach real estate, she is always up to date on the latest events and transactions, and she worked hard to make sure we were always aware of the latest sales, new listings, etc. She also had a special sense of what we wanted as clients, and every property she showed us was worthy of the effort to see it. Importantly, when we finally got to the point of purchasing a property, she showed herself to be a very good businessperson and a very good negotiator, who communicated well with the people on the other side of the transaction the merits of the offer she brought. All in all, she is one of the best Realtors in Palm Beach. – Z. Shipley/ Palm Beach, FL

***********************************

We recently worked with Linda Olsson in purchasing a property in Palm Beach. Linda is absolutely first rate. She is professional and very efficient. She quickly figured out what we were looking for and what would be right for us and then she matched us to the best places for us.

She goes the extra mile and makes sure that her clients are happy. I have worked with many realtors over the years and it is clear that Linda is among the very best in her profession. – A. Firlik/ Darien, CT

***********************************

Linda was our realtor when we sold our condo/apartment in Palm Beach last summer. The market was extremely slow at the time, but with her professional and tireless marketing efforts, we received a very reasonable offer and closed last July. ~ J. Ryan/ Skillman, NJ

***********************************

Linda worked hard for 17 months to sell my condo in a very tough market. She was committed to working on it and persisted even when others might have given up. She is easy to work with and determined to work hard for her clients. I’m very glad she was willing to help me sell it and was very happy with the end result. Please contact me if you’d like more info about Linda. – K. Selig/ Glastonbury, CT

***********************************

Linda Olsson provides outstanding real estate service in every respect.

Linda does not just tell you what you want to hear. 7. is entertaining. She is fun to deal with. We have bought three properties through Linda, and we recommend her highly. – F. Lecates/Palm Beach, FL

************************************

Linda Olsson and her professional staff (which includes Carolina, her niece) really do seem to work miracles. For us, that meant selling an apartment that had languished with another realtor; finding our dream condo in a building where, seemingly, no apartments were available; and, later, keeping in touch with us about developments in the market. Linda is honest, talented, super hard working and a wonderful person all around. – C. Love/ Charlotte, NC

************************************

My wife and I first hired Linda Olsson in 2006 when we bought a property in Palm Beach. We have worked with a lot of realtors over the years — Linda has been hands-down the best realtor we’ve ever dealt with, starting with her diligent efforts to find a property in Palm Beach to a continued relationship that has been very helpful in introducing us to Palm Beach and keeping us posted on developments in the real estate market. I’d highly recommend Linda Olsson to anyone who is looking for a highly competent, well-informed, and most importantly a patient realtor who listens to her clients. With Linda, it’s not about her, and just getting a transaction closed but what works for the client and what the client wants. – E. Phelps/ McLean, VA

************************************

Linda is without question the best real estate agent in Palm Beach. She knows the market better than anyone and cares a great deal about her clients. To Linda, a client becomes a friend she treasures and looks out for. She has a meaningful career in Real Estate but she enhances her business by building strong and trusting relationships with her client base. – F. Pearl/Washington DC

************************************

We all know how uncertain the real estate market has been for the last 3 years. Due to family issues, my wife and I reluctantly decided we had to sell our condo on the beach in Palm Beach. Linda enthusiastically marketed our property with multiple showings per week over nearly two years. She protected our interests from those who thought we were so anxious to sell we would accept below market bids. Linda knew the value of the property and did not allow us to lower the price when we had offers below our asking price. She also helped us keep the property in good shape for showing during this time as we had a few minor maintenance issues which she handled while we lived in New England. She persevered with us to achieve a great result. Linda knows the market very well and can assess the value of the property being sold very accurately. She represented us on the purchase of the property as well and helped us make an excellent purchase. We made a profit in a lousy real estate market thanks to Linda’s negotiating skills and excellent advice. She is a true professional who knows her market well and represents her clients interest above all else. – J. Messman/ Weston, MA
