She’s one of the top agents in San Diego County and rarely advertises.

She’s a 2011 graduate of National Association of REALTORS® Leadership Academy and she attended Harvard University School of Business Women’s Leadership forum in 2012.

Sugar is one of the most important parts of the office team. Born on October 11th, 2006, he came into Linda’s life shortly thereafter. As a Bichon Frisè, he brings elegance anywhere he goes. Sugar quickly became an inseparable part of her office; he is a part of her branding, and he is interchangeably known as First Dog and the office mascot. He’s the unofficial office supervisor, and has his own “barking” space.
Pets are a vital part of our life, and often our work as well. Sugar has his own health insurance, and is always seen with Linda whenever possible. One of the easiest ways of enriching your life is to invite an animal to share it with you. They will quickly graduate from pets into being a part of your family. And who wouldn’t do anything for their family? Sugar is as much a part of the process in Linda’s office as anyone can be.
