Dr., Ste. 102 Castle Pines, CO 80108 720-849-6678 lindaclure.com firstname.lastname@example.org Preferred Realty Where were you born? I was born in Salem Massachusetts, the “Witch City”! I am the youngest of six children. During my 16 years as a Realtor, I have earned several accredited specialties and designations, including Senior Real Estate Specialist, Relocation Specialist, Buyer’s Accredited Representative and Certified Negotiation Expert. By earning these important designations, I feel I am fully educated, knowledgeable, and confident in offering my Buyer’s and Seller’s the best real estate transaction and experience that they deserve. My passion is working with seniors as they have a wealth of knowledge and I always learn something from them! What is the most challenging part of what you do? The biggest challenge I face in the current market is educating Buyer’s and Seller’s regarding the information they are obtaining from the internet, and how it IS NOT always current or correct information. How long have you lived in the area? I have been a resident in Colorado for 24 years. What do you like most about it? What I love most about Colorado is the weather and the friendly people. What do you most enjoy doing when you are not working? When I am not working, I enjoy traveling with my family. We really enjoy cruising. My favorite tese, Dunkin!

Finding the right price in today’s market is a lot more than your “gut feeling” and your needs. What is one tip you have for someone looking to buy a house? The one tip I have for someone looking to buy a house is to get pre-approved with a good, reputable lender. Your lender can make or break a deal for you! What is the most unusually thing you’ve encountered while working in real estate? The most unusual thing I’ve encountered while working in Real Estate is an “attack cat”! Once, I had a buyer who desperately wanted to see a particular home and this cat would not even allow us to walk through the front door! I have heard of an attack dog before….but an “attack cat?
