We first met Linda when she was referred to us a year before we even moved to St. Pete. Not knowing if she would see us again and only meeting us over one lunch - Linda sent us a detailed description of neighborhoods to check out (turn by turn) and answered specific questions about the market/areas/trends/neighborhoods.
We knew when the time came to finally purchase our home (over two years later) - that Linda was the one to turn to...we were so happy that we did. Linda had our backs the whole time - making calls to Realtors, referring folks our way to work with, communicating with all those in the process, answering our questions and texts and keeping us informed on everything. Linda's communication and determination to make things work and get us in our home were amazing to see. She is caring, very knowledgeable (she is a St. Pete. native), and confident, which was very helpful during negotiations and all the way to the closing table.
I would recommend Linda Faucett to anyone needing a reliable, smart, confident and caring agent that works so hard to make her clients happy through all stages of buying a home...we were in good and caring hands with Linda as out agent!

Linda is a Realtor with strong ethics and professionalism in all that she does. We originally called a couple of Realtors but it was Linda's quick et is a Realtor with strong ethics and professionalism in all that she does. We originally called a couple of other Realtors, but it was Linda's quick response and attention to detail that led us to utilize her in our home search.
With Linda being a native of St. Pete., we had complete confidence. Being native Texans, we were unfamiliar with the area, unfamiliar with the market conditions and we were full of questions. Linda was patient in answering all our questions and was quick to provide information on topics we didn't account for. Linda's expertise was critical throughout the process. Linda was well connected as it relates to closing agents, insurance agencies, and inspectors. It was through these contacts that we determined the first house we selected had more issues than we wanted to take on. Through her help and guidance, we moved onto another home and closed in record time, despite an uncompromising seller. Linda was instrumental in keeping all action items on track to ensure we, as buyers, were satisfied. We couldn't be happier!!! When the need arises, we look forward to working with Linda again!!! Thanks Linda!!!
Robert and Jon - Buyers - St. Petersburg
Linda Faucett has helped us sell two homes over the last decade. The first one belonged to a relative. It was in terrible shape but in a prime location. She advised us what needed to be done and gave us a reasonable price to sell the home. My husband and I know very little about real estate and what to expect when selling a house. When the inspection came back, she was able to recommend some workmen that were reputable and reasonable. Selling that house was painless because Linda walked
with us and kept us constantly informed.
We just moved to North Carolina and Linda sold our Seminole house. Again, she walked with us every step of the way. After the appraisal, we found that we had a few things to repair for the buyer. Again, she recommended someone and even checked on the house frequently after we moved. It is stressful enough to clean out, pack up and arrange for a move. We were able to focus on our move because as usual, Linda took care of everything.
Linda is honest, loyal, informed about the housing market and a saint! She keeps you informed, discusses everything and doesn't give up until the house is sold. She is wonderful. I recommend her highly.
Beth and Eddie - Sellers - Seminole
Linda is by far the BEST Realtor I have ever known. She is responsible for my husband and I finding and purchasing our Forever Home. Linda was referred to me by a mutual friend....thanks again Debbie and Terry! Linda had been helping me through a bankruptcy, which took a couple of years. I joked with her saying that some day we would do business and she would make a commission for all her troubles.
Well, that day came and we got pre-approved on financing, so I called Linda and told her what we wanted. We spent about a month looking and nothing really seemed to be what we were looking for. So my husband went online and looked at everything and he finally found it. Linda made an appointment and we fell in love! This house was NOTHING like what we had Linda looking for, but it turned out to be EVERYTHING we wanted.
Linda did the rest, advised us on the offer, etc., they accepted and the rest as they say, was history. Linda put us in contact with EVERYTHING we needed: financing, insurance, inspectors...you name it. She advised us with everything and looked after us like we were family, and now we feel like we are! We couldn't be happier.
I tell everyone I know who is in the market to contact her. I have many business cards! She is very professional and knows her stuff.
Dee and Mike - Buyers - Pinellas Park
(Happiest Homeowners EVER)
We were very fortunate to have Linda as our Realtor. There needed to be a great amount of trust in our long-distance, initial relationship. We decided to trust her, and she was willing to work for us "sight unseen".
After quickly understanding what we wanted in a property, she suggested we come down, so we set three days aside to come and see properties. When we got there (hoping some appointments were set up), she had actually set all the appointments for that same afternoon. All of our criteria for properties were met on every appointment! We found our new home right away because of her expertise, understanding our needs and hard work. These qualities, and her devotion to detail are the qualities that made our major transition possible. And, because we made an offer the first day, we were able to use the remaining time to explore the area.
Linda's integrity and knowledge helped us through the offer and negotiation process, as she allowed us to make the decisions but offered as much help as possible.
Yes, it was our great fortune to find a Realtor as professional(and personable) as Linda. We hope to have a continued friendship with her now that we have moved to the area and into the home we had dreamed of owning.
Pam and Scarlett - Home Buyers - Parrish
We really cannot say enough about Linda. This was our first time buying a second home to use as both a rental property and to getaway for ourselves. We found Linda buy doing some research on the Internet. She was quick to get back to us and for the minute we talk to her on the phone we knew she would be the realtor for us. From that moment on, she worked quickly and efficiently on everything that we asked.
We were coming from out of state, so she had three days to set up showings, introduce us to the area, and try to find us our ideal second home. And believe it or not, she did just that! We couldn't be happier with the property that she found us. Closing was a little challenging because we live in another state, but Linda was there every step of the way and VERY patient throughout the whole process. Since the closing, Linda has remained our "go to" person for various things and we couldn't be more pleased. Honestly, we can't thank Linda enough for everything she has done for us. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor in that area.
Danielle and Dawn - Home Buyers - Madeira Beach
My husband and I feel very fortunate that we found Linda to help us in our search for a condo. We weren't very familiar with condo living and Home Owners Associations but due to Linda's expertise, she helped us become very comfortable making the move. Linda showed us a variety of available properties in different locations and while working with her, she learned more about us and our needs and we got to know her. And the more we knew about Linda, the more we liked her. Linda is not only a very knowledgeable and efficient real estate professional, she is a caring and thoughtful person as well. In the future if we have any further real estate ventures, she will be the first to know. It is without hesitation that I recommend Linda for any real estate need.
Deb and Terry – Home Buyers – Pinellas Park, FL
Linda was our realtor when we were looking for a home in Florida. We have purchased more than five homes and never before worked with a more knowledgeable, interested and professional person as Linda. She did her research based on our guidelines and helped us get our condo and close within 3 weeks! She was always available, answering her cell phone immediately or returning our call the same day, often even within the hour. I would highly recommend Linda because she will either sell your home or find you a new one and make the experience a very good one.
Alida and Fred - Home Buyers and Sellers – Seminole
As a first time home buyer, I needed guidance in every step of the buying process and Linda was more than a Realtor. She took the time to educate me and in many ways she was more like a friend willing to help me above and beyond her duties as an agent. Linda has the knowledge of the housing market and is a great person to work with. Definitely she made my life much easier! Thanks Linda!
Alley - 1st Time Home Buyer – Tampa
I have worked with Linda both as a property manager and realtor in the sale of that same rental property. I truly cannot say enough about the assistance she has provided me throughout both experiences. She made my life so much easier by resolving any rental issues that arose and giving me excellent referrals for services needed for repairs and item purchases. I was totally clueless about the process of selling a home and had little time to deal with the details. I assumed that the house would be on the market forever and that it would be a constant burden to deal with all the things that needed to be done to make the house presentable. However, Linda was fabulous! She consistently went above and beyond to make things happen. She immediately listed the house, gave me a list of the items that I needed to take care of, and she took care of the rest. She expertly coordinated the details with me and my brother, the co-owner, who lives out of state. I cannot tell you what a relief it was! She kept me in the loop each step along the way and worked diligently behind the scenes to make the sale. I was truly impressed with how painless she made the process for me and how rapidly she was able to close the deal. Her professionalism, integrity and excellent customer service are refreshing! I will not hesitate to refer friends and family to her. If I need the services of a realtor in the future, she will be the first and only call that I will make!
Teri – Home Seller – St Petersburg
Linda guided me through purchasing my first home in St. Pete, FL. When I met her, she took the time to ask about my needs and wants, and was a joy to work with. She can walk into a home and spot the tiniest details that I didn't see. She negotiated an amazing close for me, and was always incredibly honest. As a result, I love my house and I'm thankful that she guided me through the process. I trusted her enough to sell my grandma's home, and she has been so incredibly patient throughout the process. When I buy my next home, or when I have friends who need a great recommendation, I'll only trust Linda. Thanks again!
Erin - 1st Time Home Buyer – St. Petersburg
Linda was our Re/Max real estate agent for the sale of my sister's condo in Florida. The sale was complicated since we were conducting it from out of state. Linda did an outstanding job in not only helping us get the place ready to sell in today's market, she was able to help us close on this sale in less than a month! We are truly grateful for the assistance she gave us and would highly recommend her to handle your real estate business needs.
Caroline and Fred - Sellers - St. Petersburg
Despite the fact that we were first time buyers and young and full of many questions, Linda was always patient with us. She also was always willing to shoot straight with us about the properties we toured. In the end, what stands out most vividly is the first time we met Linda. We were looking at a house on a busy street and she walked us to the back bedroom. She said, "Do you hear that"? While traffic buzzed by and rattled the windows, she added "this isn't the right house” we immediately knew we could trust her and that she wasn't going to convince us to buy any old property we stumbled upon. Although it took us almost a year to find the right place, Linda never wavered in her belief that we would. During this time, she really got to understand our needs even more and our likes and dislikes. And when we did find the right house, just like that first time we met her, she knew.
Jon and Christina – 1st Time Home Buyers – St Petersburg
Early in May of this year on my way home from work I decided to never go back. I got home and discussed this life changing decision with my husband Dean. The very next day we placed our home in Philadelphia on the market and decided to relocate to St. Petersburg. We had visited St. Petersburg a few times and loved its history and charm.
When looking on the internet for a realtor we came across Linda’s website. After a few phone conversations and several email exchanges, I knew we lucked out. Linda lined up several homes that covered our criteria and coordinated showings for the latter part of June. I was very impressed with her knowledge of St. Petersburg real estate and the straight forward no-nonsense guidance she provided.
I could go on but the bottom line is on the very first day we finally met her and toured a few homes we fell in love with a charming bungalow in St. Petersburg. It would not have happened without Linda.
We are currently enjoying this lovely city and also have a new friend. Thank you, Linda.
Armando and Dean - Relocation Home Buyers - St Petersburg
Moving is rarely easy, and moving from out of state has the potential to be a nightmare, especially in the current market. Linda first showed her patience as she helped us determine the neighborhoods and home features that fit our current needs. In addition, she proved her tenacity as we hit many snags along the way with offers on other homes and provided an immense amount of guidance when we were frustrated with lender issues.
Linda confirmed that she gets to know her clients personally and gained our trust enough to tour homes for us when we had to return to our home out of state. After she took the time to make personal viewings on several other homes, we actually made an offer on our home even though we had never seen it in person based on her recommendation! Of course, Linda always kept us up to date with current pictures, emails, texts and phone calls. Linda even opened her home to one of us when a quick trip back here was necessary to deal with issues with a new job, saying "I’m not going to let you stay in a hotel". Our entire experience would have truly been a nightmare without Linda’s patience, expertise, perseverance, guidance, and true concern for her clients. Linda, we cannot fully express our overwhelming gratitude!
Teresa and Dawn - Home Buyers - Kenneth City
My husband and I have been friends with Linda for over forty years. We personally know her to be an honest and wonderful person who cares for the well-being of others. When my husband’s mother died, her house was in horrible condition but was in a highly desirable location on the water in Treasure Island. However, we did not want to sink any money into preparing it to sell. Linda understood our situation and was able to market the house and find a buyer wanting to rebuild on the water. Since the house had not been maintained properly, numerous complications occurred during the selling process which Linda handled efficiently and with great skill. Ultimately, the house sold much quicker than we ever thought possible, with Linda guiding us on every important and relevant detail to ensure a timely closing on the sale. She certainly made our life so much easier! In a few years we will be selling our house to retire in North Carolina. Needless to say we will call upon Linda to once again be our realtor.
Beth and Eddie – Home Sellers – Treasure Island
Linda is very skilled in her profession. I provided her with my requirements and she was able to provide me with appropriate real estate listings. Over a few weeks period, we toured several properties and she helped guide me when I decided to place an offer on the home I purchased. Linda was not only helpful, she was very friendly and helped make my move to Florida a pleasant experience. Thanks Linda!
Kyla - Home Buyer – Clearwater
We cannot say enough about the competency, professionalism, warmth, and undying patience we experienced from Linda Faucett during the process of relocating from the Midwest and buying our new home in the Tampa Bay area. Linda took the time and went to great lengths to get to know us and to understand our unique needs even before we met her in person. She listened intently to both our individual and combined descriptions about what we desired in our new home. She exhaustively researched possible homes to meet our diverse needs that also fell within our projected budget.
Linda also provided extensive advance information that saved us a tremendous amount of time and aggravation which enabled us to focus our energy on our cross-country move. Linda patiently and expertly guided us through several home showings as well as promptly responded to the numerous questions that were raised during this process. Even when our questions were outside of her expertise, she promptly suggested valuable resources that could assist us. She allowed us the time and space to decide on the home we wanted and never attempted to sway us toward any one particular property. Once we narrowed our options, Linda helped us weigh out the strengths and challenges of each option.
In addition, once we ultimately made our decision, she helped us to negotiate a fair price for the home we now love. Our list could go on and on. In short, she served as our advocate and friend throughout our search, our relocation, and our ultimate home purchase. We feel very fortunate to have found a real estate professional with the intelligence, dedication and expertise that Linda Faucett provides.
Bill and Joel - Relocation Home Buyers - Pinellas Park
Linda Faucett recently helped us purchase our first home in St. Petersburg, and as young professionals new to homeownership, she could not have made the process more streamlined for us. She was very responsive to questions and concerns, genuinely listened to our preferences, and didn't inject her own opinion unless it might negatively impact our satisfaction with the home we were looking at. We were first looking for an old St. Pete bungalow house close to downtown, and when nothing met our price range and amenities, Linda quickly responded to our change in geographic scope and helped us refocus our search to another neighborhood. We felt entirely comfortable disclosing our interests and needs vs. wants. She made every effort to find us something that met what we were looking for. In the end, we found the perfect house. If there were any kinks or hindrances to the sale or the contract development, she smoothed them over before we even became aware that there was an issue. On more than one occasion we contacted her to ask her to set up the next step of the process, only to find out she had already done it for us. Linda also has many reliable contacts in the area to help with things like insurance, inspections, and repairs. You will not find a more hardworking, reliable, honest, and personable realtor in Pinellas County.
Quinn and Erika - 1st Time Home Buyers - St Petersburg
My husband and I met Linda during a trip to Clearwater in March 2013. Shortly after that, my husband and I decided to relocate from Pennsylvania to Pinellas County and let Linda know. She stayed in constant contact with us during the time our home in PA was being sold and also convinced us that we should look to purchase rather than rent. Because Linda has an extensive investment property client list, when we arrived she was able to place us in a temporary rental in one of the properties she manages which gave us time to get a feel for the real estate market.
Based on our criteria, Linda regularly sent us listings of available homes. Within a short two months, she found us a home that suited our needs! Not only was Linda always thorough, professional and helpful, she walked us through the entire process as well as helped us learn our way around in a very unfamiliar area! Linda is not just our real estate agent, she is a good friend and we would highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs.
Patti and Kenny - Home Buyers - Largo
In the competitive market of real estate, within the Pinellas County region or beyond, few agents possess those unique qualities I have come to know from Linda Faucett. Whether your objective is to buy, sell or rent, you need to entrust your investment both in time and effort in a professional who is responsive and resourceful. Linda has those attributes vital to meet the current climate of the industry and surpass your expectations. I value my continued association with Linda.
Her expertise and insight, attention to detail, friendly personality and a sincere willingness to render useful advice to her clients are instrumental. You have many options to consider, however, if you desire to engage an agent to handle all aspects of your real estate needs with a unique professional competence, then I recommend Linda as your agent of choice without any hesitation or reservation.
Robert - Property Investor – Washington, DC
After I decided to downsize earlier this year, first Linda found me the perfect 2 BR condo at a great price. Then, she secured a contract after only 7 days on the market and sold my 4 BR house in Dunedin at the price I wanted. Linda has a great feel for the market and her advice and guidance during both the purchase and sale were right on target.
Of course, what you really want in a real estate agent are efficiency and effectiveness, and Linda certainly fits that bill. But it was also important to me to have someone who understood and respected my needs, both financial and personal. And Linda did that. She truly makes buying and selling easy. She also has an extensive cadre of people to help get a property ready for the market: cleaners, painters, a variety of repair service personnel and even a structural engineer. Linda coordinates with her support team to stay right with you throughout the process. And when all the business is done, Linda doesn’t just disappear. She remains as a friend that I’ll treasure for years to come.
Bob - Home Buyer and Seller - Clearwater/Dunedin
When we met Linda, we had been through 2 realtors, 20+ homes and we were beginning to think home ownership was not for us. As first-time home buyers, we were overwhelmed with the whole process. We needed someone to talk us through and to be patient with our questions. Just when we were about to put our house hunting days on hiatus, a friend recommended that we call Linda. One hug and a car ride consultation later, we knew we had found the right person to lead the search for our new home.
Linda’s honesty and directness were a breath of fresh air in a sea of sales people who only saw the bottom line. She took the time to understand our needs and wants in a home. When we found the home that we own today, Linda became our personal "knight in shining armor", making sure the offer was in right away, that we got the best lender to handle our financial needs and that we were ultimately making the right decision for our family.
We really knew we had a fantastic realtor when there were a few snags in the lender approval process due to new seller requirements and Linda didn’t leave us hanging. Instead, she was calling, emailing, faxing, you name it, to insure that we did not lose the perfect home for us. Linda guided us through the battlegrounds to ensure we had our wonderful new home. We are grateful that Linda was there to hand us the keys to our future. We recommend when searching for your next home that you give Linda a call. Thank you, Linda!
Mary and Andrew - 1st Time Home Buyers – Pinellas Park
When we began the process of relocating to Pinellas County from hundreds of miles away we knew it would be difficult to take time away from our hectic schedules to go house hunting. It was so important that we find a realtor who would work with us to accurately define our "wish list" which included not only the type of home we were looking for but also the right location. Luckily, we found Linda.
Linda helped us find a wonderful home in a great location. And, she used her knowledge of the current market to ensure we got the house at the right price. After the deal was made, it was discovered the roof needed to be replaced. Linda then took charge to make sure the repairs were made by a reputable contractor in time to still allow us to close by the desired date. Simply put, Linda is not only a great realtor, she is a wonderful and caring individual. Linda took all the worry out of what could have been a scary long distance move and we can't thank her enough.
Dwight and Alan - Home Buyers - Seminole
Linda Faucett proved her expertise in marketing my Clearwater villa at a time when residential property was selling at a very slow pace. After a year of listing my place with another agent and receiving very little interest from buyers, I decided to take it off the market. Thankfully, after a couple of months, I had a few face-to-face meetings and encouraging phone calls with Linda and decided to once again list my home for sale.
Very quickly, Linda was able to garner a substantial amount of exposure with her internet and other marketing strategies. In addition, her savvy suggestion to have my vacant home designed by a staging company lead to an overwhelming increase in the number of people interested in viewing it. In just a few months, Linda herself ultimately found the right buyer and helped to negotiate a win-win situation for myself and the buyer. I am truly grateful for all of the time and patience she put into making this sale finally happen! I would highly recommend that you engage Linda’s services to help you sell your home.
Barbara - Home Seller – Clearwater
In 2009 we were looking for property in Northern FL and Linda Faucett set us up with a local Remax agent in Live Oak, Fl. She assisted us with the paperwork since we lived in Pinellas Park and kept in close contact with the agent in Live Oak through the entire process. In 2012 we decided to move permanently to the property and asked Linda to help us with selling the Pinellas Park home. Linda was very professional and thorough with taking various pictures to post, taking a good history of the home and had all the paperwork needed to get us started with the process. She was very cooperative and sensitive to the fact we had a limited time frame for showing the home due to our work schedules. It was a pretty fast turn around though as she was able to find a buyer, work though the VA's system for their loan and have everything completely finalized and the closing done within 2 months!! We would recommend Linda Faucett to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in Pinellas or Hillsborough County.
Jo and Electra - Pinellas Park/Live Oak
I can't tell you enough about Linda. My husband and I live in Massachusetts and we were looking to buy a property in Clearwater, FL. I had contacted a realtor and he pretty much didn't want to deal with our transaction but I found Linda and she was amazing right from the start as she quickly responded to my emails and phone calls. When we were ready to purchase, she was very direct and honest and guided us in submitting our offer. Once we came to a deal we ran into a little snag and Linda got her title company to handle the issue even though it was something that had happened in a previous transaction but impacted our ability to purchase the property.
I still get emails from Linda wishing us Happy Holidays or Happy Birthday. Not only did I find a realtor but also a friend. I can't recommend Linda enough!
Sandy and Ray - Home Buyers - Clearwater
Linda was the property manager for the condo I was leasing for the last year. When the owners decided to sell the unit, I already loved it and had become familiar with the area which I also enjoyed so it may good sense to me to buy it. I already had a solid working relationship with Linda while she managed the property and I knew her to be honest, dependable and knowledgeable and I trusted her completely to act on my behalf to help me buy my home. I found that both the leasing and buying process with Linda ran very smoothly. She always responded to my calls in a timely manner and did whatever was needed to get the job done. She definitely knows her business. If you are considering leasing or buying property, Linda would be the realtor I would recommend.
Linda - Home Buyer - St Petersburg
As a client I cannot express with words the gratitude and satisfaction I have experienced while we have looked for a home in the Clearwater area. Coming from Colorado my husband and I knew it was not going to be an easy task to find a house 2000 miles away. While searching an overwhelming amount of real estate website pages, Linda pointed us in the right direction based on our needs and budget. She took the time to know us and asked about long term and short term plans for our housing needs. Our rather unusual need to reside in the house for a couple of years, move to the UK for a few more years while renting out the property and eventually retiring in the area, were all taken into account. She listened and asked important questions. It is without hesitation that I recommend Linda Faucett for relocation, upsizing, downsizing or any real estate need. You will find no better agent in the business.
Emilia and Jerry - Home Buyers - Palm Harbor
My husband and I searched on our own to find a home convenient to his commute to work in Clearwater Beach. We saw a home we were interested in and Linda was the listing agent so we contacted her directly. Linda worked tirelessly to broker the sale, referred us to a great mortgage contact, answered all of our questions and was never further than a text away! Her professionalism was impeccable, but we also felt as though we had also found a new friend! We wholeheartedly recommend Linda to anyone wanting to sell or purchase property. She is a true gem in the real estate industry!
Dawn and Bobby - Home Buyers - Pinellas Park
Linda did a terrific job of representing our interests when survey details surfaced at the end of negotiations. We are very glad that she was our real estate agent. It was the first time that we listed a property with someone we had never met and it turned out to be a successful experience. She kept us informed every step of the way and when we had concerns, she kept a cool head and showed her professionalism to both seller and buyer. Someday we hope to be able to meet Linda.
Phylis and Kay - Home Sellers - Arcadia, Florida
Linda represented me as a buyer in my purchase of a luxury downtown condo. The deal ended up being difficult, due mostly to the seller being rather ridiculous. Linda spent a lot of time and effort helping to get my purchase across the finish line.
