Linda is a great agent - she’s responsive, capable, and level headed. She helped me price our investment condo appropriately and we got an offer in 2 days. She worked with the current tenants diligently to get the showings organized during COVID and got the condo vacated in time for the new owners. During the closing process, it occurred to her that the sale would involve overseas notarization, and she worked with me every step of the way. Most importantly, she was proactive and had a plan before speaking with me, instead of reactive. Because of the hairy situation she had to deal with, I asked her to modify the engagement letter to increase her commission, and she declined. Having worked with several agents in different markets including NYC and SF, I find Linda to be one of the best. She is not your typical agent who over-promises and under-delivers. She’s competent, reliable and trustworthy. She made me feel that I was her only client, despite her impressive sales record this year. I would recommend her 100%.
We could not have picked a better Realtor to help us buy our first home. Linda is timely, reliable, extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. As first time home buyers we had lots of questions and Linda was very patient and knowledgeable. She frequently anticipated our questions before we would even ask. When we would tour homes Linda always knew more about the property than the seller's agent. Whether it was the type of counter tops, age of the roof, areas were the drainage might not be correct, or potential compliance issues, Linda was always pointing things out for us to consider. We always felt like she had our best interests in mind. She knew what we were looking for and kept us from rushing into a house that was less than perfect because we felt like all the houses were being scooped up. She also talked us out of places that were not good investments (backed up against the highway). When the time came to make an offer on a house she provided guidance on what would be a good offer and pulled together the offer extremely quickly. With the fast pace of the market she was able to pull together an offer in hours. She even discussed our options with us at 10 pm (she wasn't calling us late, but it was needed as all offers needed to be in the next morning after we viewed the house) and pulled the offer together to be ready by the next morning. Once our offer was accepted she set up all of the inspections, helped us understand which items were important to have repaired, and talked us through the repairs negotiations. She led us every step of the way without a hitch. Even after closing she provided us with contacts for repair people for future use. We really can't say enough good things about Linda. You cannot go wrong Linda as your Realtor!
Linda is amazing! I can’t say enough positive things about her! From her huge network of local suppliers to her EXTENSIVE knowledge of home ownership, buying a first home with her was such a wonderful experience. Linda is extremely diligent when helping you find exactly what you are looking for and is always a text or phone call away. We will use her from here on out, 10/10 recommend!
We cannot recommend Linda enough. She is personable, knowledgeable, responsive and made our house buying journey enjoyable and stress free. She works tirelessly for her clients. This is the second time we have dealt with her and her service levels remain impeccable.
We stumbled upon Linda because our relationship with our first agent didn't work out, and Linda was amazing!! We had already found the property, but she still put in an incredible amount of work and provided us with really expert guidance. Linda is super responsive, very helpful and good atexplaining process, and as an added bonus, she knows the TO area very well and was able to provide us with a lot of referrals and good resources in the area. We highly recommend Linda, and I would definitely work with her again in any future transaction!
Linda has been a tremendous help in finding us a place to live and has been the greatest realtor to work with. She’s kind, knowledgeable and will fight for you. She is able to accommodate our busy schedule, really listens to you and has provided invaluable guidance. We were facing a difficultsituation and Linda has gone above and beyond to help us. 11/10 recommend!
Linda was absolutely wonderful to work with. She is straightforward, informative, easy to talk to, and always there for you when needed. She walked me through the steps from start to finish of buying a home and inheriting tenants. I not only got the place I wanted, but also gained a better insight in the gruesome of home buying. I couldn’t have done it without her. So, thank you for your guidance and sincerity through this whole process.
We interviewed 2 other agents before selecting Linda Hutchings to sell our home, and we are very happy with our choice. In addition to being a charming person, she is truly excellent at her job, and a joy to work with. Her recommendations for preparing our home for sale were just right, without our needing to spend too much money. Her assessment of the sales price was correct, and she brought our final buyers to see the house within a few days. In less that two weeks we had two good offers, one of which we accepted. Linda was very attentive throughout the entire process, keeping us informed about the result of every single potential buyer that came to see the house, and following up with each one that seemed interested. When the house was being appraised, she was right there to politely point out to the appraiser the features of our home that made it worth more than a similar home which sold a few months earlier. She was on top of every aspect of the negotiations, even when it got complicated, and guided the process to the ultimate sale. We enthusiastically recommend her.
I cannot put into words how thankful my husband and I were to have worked with Linda on helping us find and close on our family’s dream home. From the very beginning, Linda was on top of EVERYTHING. She was in tune with what we were looking for and found us the home that met our needs, tastes andthen some. She came to the table with vendor relationships which proved to be invaluable. People would go out of their way to tell me how much they love working with Linda. How often can you say that about anybody, let alone your real estate agent? On top of everything else, Linda guided us through the process with a smile. Besides her sharp professionalism and attention to detail, she brought kindness, warmth and personality to every single day, something two nervous buyers appreciated so much. We can not recommend her enough. Personalized, professional and excellent.
Linda is awesome, hire her. I found her on the internet when I was looking to purchase an investment property for a 1031 exchange. I live out of state and she handled the entire process with great professionalism and personal attention. After the sale she went so far as to help us find a tenant. Everything went perfect thanks to LINDA!
Two of our friends recommended Linda Hutchings, and we're so glad we decided to use her. She helped us sell our house in Simi Valley and buy a new house in Camarillo, and she has exceeded our expectations in terms of responsiveness (I have no problem texting/emailing her during evenings/weekends with questions), local knowledge and willingness to help us find contractors and make it as easy as possible to move into our new house. I'm also really glad she uses DocuSign (something our previous realtor didn't use) - it was so easy to sign required paperwork via our cell phones or laptops. As a listing agent, she initially met with us and gave us honest feedback and recommendations on what to fix before putting our house on the market. Once the house was ready, a professional photographer came over and took awesome photos of our house, which was posted in our listing, as well as printed out on fliers. A large, white sign was put up in our front yard and was very visible to people driving by our neighborhood. Linda helped us with 2 successful open houses, and we started getting offers within the first month of listing. As a selling agent, she showed me 60+ houses until my husband and I found a home we loved. When seeing many houses at once, she offered to drive us around to make things easier. She has a great eye for details and pointed out anything concerning about the house (older looking roof, older looking appliances, near train tracks, etc.). She was not pushy at all and never made us feel pressured to put an offer when we weren't to. She was also understanding when we did ask her to write an offer and decided to change our minds. When she was out of town, she respectfully informed us in advance and connected us to someone else who works with her at White House Properties. This was so helpful, as this allowed us to be the first people to see the house we ended up buying. Additionally, she's a great negotiator and knows how to play hard ball if she has to. Even after we have closed escrow on both houses, she continues to be a tremendous help to us, making sure that our transition is going as smoothly as possible.
Linda Hutchings was my real estate agent through the whole upgrade and sales process. She advised me on what I should upgrade or replace that would have a return greater than the cost and increase the sales value of the condo. She then acted as an advisor on the selection of materials, colors, and products. I ended up replacing my flooring, toilets, fixing my bathrooms, light fixtures, counter-tops, and more. Linda also recommended several of the contractors I ended up using in completing my upgrades. Her advice was excellent. We also listed the completed project for even higher than we expected when we started the upgrades. We had multiple offers within the first month and the condo sold extremely fast. Linda met the appraiser at my condo and I believe this helped to get the highest appraised value. Then, after some negotiation with the buyer and his realtor she got me some further concessions and the condo sold for a record high, the highest price on a two bedroom in the development in the past 6 months. Linda was professional and knowledgeable through the entire process and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor to sell their home.
Linda was our Realtor for the sale of our house in Dos Vientos. She knew exactly what to do at every step along the way. Her recommended "take away" guy took some stuff away to make our home look more open. She staged the house. She networked with other Realtors as the house went on themarket. The first buyer that saw the house loved it and made an offer. Within a week, with her advice, we were in escrow. And Linda managed the massive amount of mostly electronic paperwork like a skilled manager. Everything went smoothly and quickly with happy buyers and sellers. She has a great personality and she has the knowledge and experience to effectively handle every step of the process through closing. She was busy throughout this process with other clients, but we always had her attention when needed. We highly recommend her.
Could not be happier! I have worked in the Luxury Hospitality industry for over 17 years and I can ensure you that Linda provides top notch service. We met her 5 years ago renting a condo in Westlake Village, when we decided to buy our first home there was no question, we went directly with her. We toured lots of homes, she was always available, her honest feedback steering us away from the potential expensive problems some houses in our area can have and her contacts were very helpful. Linda helped us navigate through the unknowns of buying your first home, even help leave our rental condo, she will do whatever it takes to be helpful! We ended up getting the home we were looking for, and we love it!
Linda Hutchings is the consummate Real Estate professional. Her knowledge, experience, and team-work with workers within and outside of her firm, blended with the grace of her social and business skills produced impressive results. We recommend her and her firm without any reservations. Results: completion from first contact to settlement in 20 days.
We had a wonderful experience with Linda. She showed us many properties to help us make a good decision. She never got tired of us as our house hunt as took unusually long. We have always seen a big smile on her face and in the due course of house hunting she became our personal friend. She provided us with many options. She answered all our questions and provided excellent advice like which are better areas than others, which houses are overpriced etc. She was very knowledgeable and her insights helped us with our negotiations with the seller. She is extremely responsive and very prompt in communications. She helped us in choosing one of the best properties, we are so happy in this NEW HOME. Not only that when we moved to Thousand Oaks from Minneapolis she helped us with finding a rental home. She has in depth knowledge for the housing including the rental market. She even provided recommendations regarding schools to my daughter. Linda is awesome and She is simply the BEST!! Even my daughter loves her so much. We will definitely recommend her to our friends!!
Linda did an outstanding job in working with me and my wife during our seaRch for a new home in Newbury Park. I can't say enough about her professionalism, patience, knowledge, and her personal commitment to making sure we were successful in identifying, purchasing, and closing on our home of choice. Linda and her assistant Lia were always available to answer questions, provide assistance, and to convey exceptional knowledge about Thousand Oak's real estate market. Our relocation was a long distance move, and Linda provided amazing service in managing so many of the action items that always surface in the purchasing of a home. She coordinated all inspections, reports, and any repairs that were necessary. If Linda said she'd take care of an item...... it was taken care of.....always. Having someone like Linda on site to handle all these things was great, and we were lucky to have her. Linda was always looking out for our interests, and if we had a concern, she had a concern and she worked to fix it. If you need a true real estate professional.... Linda Hutchings has my 100% recommendation. You will not regret choosing this seasoned and experienced real estate individual.
Linda is the best. She helped us purchase and sell our house a few years apart, and was phenomenal throughout both processes. We were first time home buyers when we first worked with Linda, so we had tons of questions and didn't know what we wanted right away, but she was always patient and had such a great, supportive attitude. We were so happy to have her in our corner and we always felt like we were a top priority. Her knowledge of the area, attention to detail, and negotiating skills are top notch. Our only disappointment was that we could not bring her with us when we moved out of the area.
Linda is a wonderful real estate agent. My fiancé is very picky when it comes to finding the right place to live, maybe a little too picky. However, Linda went above and beyond to work with us and find us a beautiful home we love. She was very persistent and never gave up on finding a place for us,which took a year and a half. We gave her a list of things we wanted in a house and specifications that it needed to be a pet friendly place because we knew eventually we would get a dog. We also told her the areas we were looking at. Linda was highly knowledgeable in every property from the location to if it would be a noisy area to live in and so forth. We would highly recommend Linda to anyone. She is patient, kind, nice, and a respectful person who is willing to take the time to and effort to find a place people can call home.
Linda was one of the most responsive and knowledgeable people I have ever met, in any profession. I am an "old" paralegal and pride myself on being able to spot when someone is exaggerating their knowledge and abilities. Linda did what she said she would do and in a very timely fashion. If something needed fixing she knew who to call. She has a great deal of personal charm which stands her and the people she represents in good stead. If she doesn't have an answer at the ready to any given question she finds out and gets back to you. I unhesitatingly recommend Linda to assist you in your real estate needs will go back to her in a shot if the occasion arises.
We are so grateful that to have Linda Hutchings as our agent ! We knew next-to-nothing about the home buying process. Linda listened to us and guided us expertly through the entire process. She was honest, knowlegeable, compassionate and responsive. She helped us find a home that came in belowour budget and provide excellent recommendations for local handymen and artisans. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a realtor.
Linda goes above and beyond to help you during the process of buying a house. She is very knowledgeable about the local market, and she practically bends over backwards to help in any way she can.
We moved from the UK and had very little knowledge of the area. Linda was hugely helpful in guiding us through the various areas, housing options and school implications. Linda also learned from hearing our comments and the house that we chose was not on our original list, it was a suggestion fromLinda, based on what she'd heard us say. Moving country is stressful enough, so we're delighted that Linda was able to take the stress out of finding the right house.
We were putting our fixer upper on the market and Linda patiently worked with us to evaluate converting it to a rental property or putting it up for sale. She gave us great advice and when we decided to put the property up for sale, she quickly obtained multiple offers. She kept us informed throughout the process and stayed on top of the buyers to ensure they met their obligations in a timely manner. In the end, she was able to help us sell our house for five figures more than other realtors suggested as an initial listing price. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property.
Linda did an excellent job with helping us find a new home here in CA. She spent the time to understand our needs and then spent the time with us to find properties that meet our criteria and price. She also setup a web site where information was placed about them that we could review and select tosee. We enjoyed working with her and consider her a friend. We could not have asked for a better person to help us find our new home.
Our experience of Linda was highly refreshing. She is delightful to spend time with, and she quickly ascertained exactly who we were and what our needs were with a quirky insightful thoroughness that is comforting and effortless. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about our area, she alsoknows many vendors and establishments that can help to make your move smoother and less stressful. I would HIGHLY recommend her for your real estate needs.
Linda knows the market and helped us maximize what we could sell the property for. She kept us updated through the entire process so we always knew what was going on. I would recommend Linda without reservation and with great enthusiasm.
I worked with Linda for over a year. Completely satisfied. I chose Linda Hutchings after interviewing two other Agents. First, I was impressed with her responsiveness. Just a moment after submitting a request for Realtor on Zillow, the phone rang, it was Linda. I explained my need to rent the home and secure renters asap. The home was listed promptly and even better Linda secured a contract with professional qualified tenants; within the first week of being listed. On June 3, 2016 I made decisions to list the property for sale, during a stressful family situation. Linda took the ball and listed the home that day, while I was traveling. Within the first days brought in multiple offers. The home has closed on July 29, 2016. If you need immediate results whether selling or renting, I highly recommend Linda Hutchings, she is professional and Knowledgeable, prompt and available, uses the most current technology, making document signing convenient, especially for busy individuals on the go. Linda has the knowledge and discernment to securing quality tenants. Because of this, when the time came to list the property for sale; the home was in great condition for immediate showing and occupancy. When I needed any maintenance, Linda offered qualified and friendly service agents that fit my budget and time frame. We are celebrating a team victory today; Thank you Linda for all that you do for others. Congratulations on another Sale!
I have worked with Linda two times and both have been a great experience. Linda is super professional and very focused on the client’s needs. She is very trustworthy and knowledgeable in the business; she provides deep advice, she is patient with theclient and answers all the questions. Linda analyses, in the benefit of the client, she provides different alternative, all of them very good ones, and describes all the advantages and disadvantages of every one from different point of views. I strongly recommend Linda.
Linda was a fantastic advocate who got us through a trying search and purchase. We had a LONG list of must have and must not haves for the home we wanted. Linda was patient, cheerful, and ever available to show us sooooo many houses from all over the spectrum of possibilities. We eventually found the perfect one and she went above and beyond getting us into this home, including sacrificing her own time and resources to get a couple of surprises taken care of after the final walk through. She always greeted us with a smile and a can do attitude, even though I know we were high maintenance on more than 1 occasion. We highly recommend Linda!
Linda was a pleasure to work with. She was very accommodating, open and honest, which made the buying and selling process as smooth as possible. We would highly recommend Linda to anyone looking to purchase or sell a property in the area.
We are so lucky to have found Linda Hutchings to represent us as our realtor. She is not only a very knowledgeable and professional realtor, but also a person that you can trust and enjoy being with. Linda knows her territory and will try 100% to find the right home for you. She's the best!
Linda consistently exceeded expectation by far with speedy, courteous, efficient, effective service, with very fair price. Paid attention to details, yet always kept the big picture in clear view. Thank you Linda!
Linda helped me buy a condo in an area that she normally doesn't work with. Despite that I found her to be knowledgeable about processes, the area, and she was fun to work with. She is very responsive, responsible, and takes your needs and wants into consideration. She even gave me recommendations of local places to shop and hang out. It was a complicated escrow period but we made it work! I'd recommend her highly.
Linda made the process very smooth and professional, she handled all issues and solved all the problems that came up. Whenever I need to buy or sell property I will look forward with working with her.
It was truly a pleasure to work with Linda Hutchings to sell our townhome. She is very organized, thoughtful, responsive and committed. My husband and I were relocating out of state and we found Linda on Zillow. During our first meeting with Linda, she provided comps, did a walk through our house and provided great suggestions to get it ready to sell. She also worked with us to decide when to put the house on the market based on when we wanted to relocate. She was prepared to give us client references as well. With Linda’s commitment to sell our townhome, it sold in 3 weeks from the list date at a price we were very happy with. Selling a property is stressful, especially when you are under time constraints, but working with Linda, she made it easy. After our home did not sell in a couple weeks, we were getting nervous, and she was very proactive to make changes to the listing to get more showings. While we didn’t take all of her suggestions, we appreciated her motivation to get our home sold to meet our desired timeline. We really felt like a team working with Linda. I feel very lucky that I got the opportunity to work with Linda. I would recommend her to anyone that is trying to sell a home. She’s a good person and will work for you!
Linda is outstanding, thoughtful, tough and smart. My wife and I are so glad we picked her for our sale. She got top dollar for us with no hassles. She was always available to answer our questions, and very knowledgeable about the entire process. She worked hard to ensure a smooth transaction and always kept us in the loop as to the status of our sale.
When my husband and I began looking to buy our first home I was hesitant to work with a realtor because I didn't want to feel pressured. From the moment I met Linda I knew she was who I wanted to work with. She is so easy going, incredibly knowledgable and just an overall lovely person. Shewants what's best for her clients even if that means taking months of looking for the perfect home. When we fell in love with a home, she worked around the clock to secure our bid and once we went into escrow she worked even harder. She does what she says she's going to do, always answering your phone call and/or promptly responding to any questions. I can't recommend Linda enough. If you choose her as your realtor, you will be in wonderful hands and happy you did.
Linda helped us sell our house way above asking price. Her advice was invaluable and she reassured us and managed the entire process for us. If it works for you, she'll put all of the documents into a digital signature system so that signing forms is as easy as a click of the mouse, and shechecks everything for errors. Thanks Linda
Linda is the best real estate agent. She helped us rent a home almost 2 years ago, and helped us buy a new home just a few months ago. She has so much knowledge of the area and the real estate processes here. Coming from the East Coast, I was not familiar with the process for buying a home in California, but she took care of everything. She is a great negotiator, and even knows everyone you might need to contact to evaluate the home - including home inspectors, mortgage brokers, electricians, pool guys, painters, and the list goes on and on. She always goes above and beyond to help you solve any problem that comes up! I hope we can buy another house someday just so we can work with Linda again!
Linda is awesome. She was there for me from helping me find a rental house to purchasing my new home. She really knows the Conejo Valley market. Not only is she a great realtor, but she has become a wonderful friend.
My wife and I are very impressed and grateful for Linda Hutchings's work. From the first day she proved herself to be very committed and hard working in helping our family to find a new house. Since we are new to the country, Linda explained to us in a thorough but clear way all the necessary steps for buying a house. She took us to all the areas that fitted our needs and budget, making our decision easier. Our process was not an easy one since we have encountered some problems related to the lender. However, Linda presented us with possible solutions and worked hard to ensure the flow of the process and the meeting of deadlines. She is very knowledgable about the housing market, making sure we would be promptly notified whenever a new house would come up on the market and also helped us to negotiate the right price for the house we bought. Communication was very easy, friendly and effective. We highly recommend Linda Hutchings's work!
My family and I are so grateful to have Linda Hutchings as our realtor! I have known her for over 2 years. During the time when we're looking to buy a house, the housing market was getting really hot and lots of potential buyers were out there ready to make offers. Linda worked around clock showing us new listings as soon as they were available, sometimes even before they came out on market. Whenever I had questions, she would get back to me within an hour most of time. With her professional help, we were very happy to close a house we all liked in an ideal neighborhood. Her presence made the whole purchasing process going very smoothly, which could otherwise be quite stressful. A year after we closed the house, we decided to lease it and asked Linda to help us find tenants. It was winter time and the market was slow. Linda provided tons of valuable advices in helping get the house leased. She worked diligently to show the property to perspective tenants as soon as she got requests. And we're able to find a good tenant couple in a short period of time. There are so many other good things I would like to say about her. Responsive, knowledgeable, professional...Without reservation, I would recommend Linda to anyone who look to either buy/sell/lease a home or find a home to rent in Conejo Valley.
I am so grateful that we chose Linda as our realtor. She is such a genuinely nice and caring person who wants to help you find the best possible house for your family. This attitude comes across in everything she does. As first time home buyers, we were new to the entire process of buying a house. Linda was there for us every step of the way. She is knowledgeable about the home buying process and always willing to share that knowledge. Linda is extremely dedicated. She responds immediately to phone messages and emails. If you look at a house at 4 in the afternoon, she’ll have a bid in that night for you (given how quickly houses move off the market in the current real estate environment, this is extremely important). Linda always goes the extra mile. When our house’s termite report showed it needed work, Linda was knowledgeable enough to know the price was on the high side. She called a company she knew and they agreed to do a free estimate for us. Not only would we have not known that we were getting a bad deal with the first termite company, but I didn’t have to do anything to get the second company out there—Linda arranged it all. Linda knows the area well, so she can talk both about local shopping and schools as well as what the housing market has been like in certain neighborhoods. I whole-heartedly recommend Linda for her attentiveness, knowledge of the area and commitment to getting us the best house possible
Last March my wife and I began the process of searching for a rental property to purchase. It was a stroke of immense luck that we came across Linda Hutchings to help us with this endeavor. Never in my life had I experienced the pleasure of working with someone as thorough, patient,professional, and conscientious as Linda. We were total novices when it came to this type of search and transaction. Linda was there to guide us through every step of the process, always with a smile and a word of encouragement. As an adept arbiter, she made sure that all parties, my wife and I, the seller, and finally, the renter, were totally satisfied. Whether selling, buying, or renting, there is no one I would recommend other than Linda to handle the process.
I would highly recommend Linda as a realtor for anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home. She is genuinely interested in her clients and is very knowledgeable about local real estate and the intricacies of the purchase process. I did a fair amount of research when screening realtors and was very impressed with Linda. For my particular transaction, her experience, knowledge, credentials and responsiveness surpassed the others. More importantly, Linda took a genuine interest in understanding my needs. She informed me of what to expect, guided me through every step of the purchase process, kept me abreast of any developments, and answered my many questions. We worked together to make a successful bid. I appreciate her ardent efforts, enduring patience, and welcoming attitude. It was a real pleasure working with her.
Linda has recently assisted me with my relocaton fom the UK to California, and her local knowledge and experience has been invaluable in helping me find the ideal home in the right location. My concerns were alleviated very early on in the process when I realised that Linda was highly professional, considerate and receptive to my particular requirements and expectations. The process ran smoothly, and indeed I found my ideal property much sooner than I had thought possible. I was confident that Linda would be able to find a property within my budget and meeting my expectations, and I was not disappointed. Linda has maintained contact to ensure that I am supported going forward, and whilst I'm still new to California, its great to know that I have a contact nearby who I can call on if I need further guidance. I highly recommend Linda to anyone new to the area looking for a home.
