EXPERIENCE AND DEDICATION
Linda is well acquainted with the Big Island of Hawaii. She first came to Hawaii in 1973. After living in Volcano and Kona for five years, she moved to the Bay Area of San Francisco where she also sold real estate. In 1998, she returned to Hawaii and promptly got her Hawaii real estate license. In 2006, she obtained her broker’s license and has been active in the real estate industry ever since.
Today, Linda sells mainly from the South Kona area (where she resides) up to Waimea and Hawi and all along the Kona and Kohala Coast. She has sold leasehold farms in South Kona, condos in Keauhou, raw land in Kaloko and residential homes along the Kona Coast.
Linda has spent the past 15 years obtaining certification in several areas of mediation. She strongly believes that this work assists her in negotiating fair deals for all parties. Her transactions run smoothly and, if concerns arise, she is able to communicate with all parties to complete the transaction with as little stress as possible. These skills, along with her efficiency, attention to detail, knowledge of the local market and her willingness to go above and beyond for her clients’ comfort, make working with Linda “the full deal” as stated by past clients F. Joseph and Mary Ellen Stanton.
In her spare time, Linda stays active with daily walking, a consistent exercise routine and gardening. She is also an avid tennis and football fan. Her family lives close by and she enjoys spending time with them when their busy schedules allow it. Linda has been a volunteer with the local REALTOR® associations and has been a member of the Grievance and Professional Standards Committees. She also supports SKEA—Society for Kona’s Education and Arts, West Hawaii Mediation Center and Kona Historical Society.
"My wife and I recently sold our condo in Keuhou. Linda demonstrated a very strong knowledge of the market conditions and went above and beyond in assisting us through the entire process. She is professional and at no time did we feel any pressure. I feel Linda always had our best interest in mind and would certainly recommend her to anyone.

"To Putnam Clark, Owner
I am taking the time to write this regarding the ethics and work of one of the Realtors in your firm. Her name is Linda Swanson. I have only praise for this professional after completing two transactions with her recently. She demonstrated fairness and I think represented her clients expertly.
As I have been in the real estate business for over 25 years, I feel all too often we do not give recognition to a job well done by one of our competitors. I affirm your success in attracting sales people of this caliber, they teach by example.

"My sister and I are so grateful and felt especially cared for in this whole unfamiliar process. Especially when I am in California , trying to it all long distance. Thank you, Linda for your knowledge, expertise and care. I don't know how we could have done all this as successfully without you! You truly embody Aloha!

"Linda will do all the necessary items to have the purchase go through with the minimum hassle for her client. She also knows the real estate business and is very professional going about it. If Linda does not agree with you, she will tell you so and give you her opinion and the reasons for her ideas. It will be an open discussion with the main purpose of getting the job done , fair and equitable for all. Mary Ellen and I have moved many times in my career with "Corporate America" and I can honestly say that Linda was without doubt the "Best Realtor" we have ever encountered in our pursuit of buying and selling our homes. When you work with Linda, you get the "Full Deal".
