Biography

Cutler Real Estate asked Linda a few questions so you can get to know her better, and here are Linda's replies.

1. What is your professional/educational background?

  • 5 Star Realtor Professional
  • Hold a Broker's license 
  • Managed and coached agents in addition to sales agent


2. Why did you choose a career in real estate?

To counsel & assist in helping others to find the American dream of home ownership.

3. What area do you live in currently and what do you like about where you live?

Resident of Grove City.  I love the small town atmosphere, yet convenience of larger city environments.  Located 7 minutes from downtown Columbus with easy access to both I-71 and 270, Grove City is an easy and quick commute to just about anywhere you want to go. The slow, structured, and continued growth of our city makes it a hidden gem as a suburb of Columbus.  Housing prices continue to be more affordable than some of the other areas making it a great place for those seeking first time ownership, or for those downsizing.  We are home to the Lanny Wadkins designed Pinnacle Golf Course, of which I am a member, that provides a beautiful and challenging experience for all who love the game of golf.  A genuinely friendly community.

4. How do you spend your free time?

I am part of a large Italian family and of course family is very important to me, so a great deal of my spare time is spent with those I love.  I most enjoyed spending time with my precious parents who have now passed away, but are still in the forefront of my heart.  I enjoyed playing golf, especially in tournaments, as I am somewhat competitive, but not a sore loser!  Being a Sales Manager, and a successful Realtor honestly leaves little "me time", as we generally work 24/7, so it is a good thing I love what I do!

5. If you could only keep 5 possessions what would they be?

My most prized possession was a gold pocket watch given to me by my father.  He obtained it by trading a Hershey Candy Bar while guarding Prisoners in WWII.  This past Christmas I gifted it to my Brother with love as my most prized possession.

6. In one word, how do you think your friends/family would describe you?

Passionate!

We were very impressed with Linda. Her knowledge and the patience she showed toward us as we purchased a new home,, and sold our home of 30 years. A very positive experience and would highly recommend Linda to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

We found Linda to be absolutely super as our agent. She helped us purchase the home we were looking for and did not try to push anything on us that we were not interested in. She also sold the home we wanted to leave and worked in a professional and clear headed manner to resolve several issues that arose with the sale. Linda listened to our concerns,, was available whenever we needed her but also pulled no punches when telling us things we might not have wanted to hear.

I've had experiences with other relators and nothing can compare to the service and care we received when working with Linda. She not only heard what we wanted and what we could afford, but she truly took everything we said into her heart. She worked so hard to find a place that we could call home and raise our twin girls in happily. Linda went above and beyond all of our expectations. She was honest with us and never tried to show us something that she didn’t believe we could afford or something that we wouldn’t want. Do to her amazing service and her caring nature I would never ever think of going to anyone else. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone and I already do. When or if we ever sell again I will make sure I use Linda. If you want the best home buying experience then you should go to Linda Altomare. She is the best there is! Our family could never have done it without her. My family is indebted to her and she will always have a special place in our family. Thank you Linda your are the BEST!!!

Linda incredibly helpful, patient, and understanding throughout the entire home buying process. She was extremely helpful when explaining everything that was happening every step of the way. I loved waking up to new listings so I could look them over and decide which houses were best suited for our needs and desires. I will work with Linda when we decide to sell our house we are now living in now, all thanks to her. Call her now.

Linda was our realtor when we sold our home in Grove City. She arranged for a good photographer to photograph the house and it was posted online. We had appointments as soon as it hit the site. Linda kept in touch and she worked well with the clients. If we had questions, she was right there for us. She kept the process moving and the sale went well. We would recommend Linda as your realtor.

Linda made the process of selling our house easier and faster that we could have ever imagined.

Without a doubt we would use and recommend Linda Altomare to anyone that is looking at buying and selling in the future.

I can't say enough about having Linda Altomare as my realtor. I spent months on the internet looking at houses trying to decide what I wanted in my new home and finally found one I wanted to see. With no realtor, no approval letter, and no clue how the process worked; I called the listing agent and set up a showing. It was almost like hitting the lottery! I got to the house and met Linda for the first time. Not only did she meet me on a Sunday afternoon but she actually explained how the process worked and what the market was like. I wasn’t thrilled with that particular house but I was blown away with Linda. Her professionalism, caring nature, and extensive knowledge gave me instant piece of mind that this was the realtor I wanted to work with and one I could trust. In a little over 24 hours I had two financing approval letters, Linda and I had gone to see 6 houses, and I put an offer on the house I now live in. It wasn’t always easy during the negotiation process and the events leading up to closing and I wasn’t always the best client but Linda never made me doubt her abilities and her commitment to me as her client. Two days after I moved into my new home, I had Linda list my old house. With her guidance and knowledge of the industry; my house was in contract within 5 hours of being listed. I’ve referred Linda to my friends and neighbors and I’d refer her to anyone looking for a great realtor and a great person.

We just finished the process of selling our first home and purchasing our dream home all with Linda. On the selling side, she gave us simple, cost effective tips on how to get our home ready for market. We were under contract 15 hours after the home was listed! On the buying side, she really was our advocate and wanted us to get the house as much as we wanted the home! Linda truly does care and it comes across in all she does. I would recommend Linda to my closest friends and family!

We can’t speak highly enough of our experience with Linda Altomare. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. We met with a couple of realtors before Linda, but we knew instantly that she was the one for us. She is honest, hands-on and helped to take the pressure off of us. When we finally found the “one” there were multiple offers, Linda walked us through every step of the negotiations and we got the house! Linda always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. We also had a baby on the way and were expecting his arrival just a month after we made the offer. Linda worked extra hard with our lender and the sellers and we had the keys to our house in 30 days! We moved in 3 days before our baby boy arrived! Linda even stopped by a few months later to see our son. She is so personable and caring. We now consider Linda a friend and would highly recommend her to anyone that is searching for a new home.

Linda went above and beyond in finding me a house in a great neighborhood and in the price range I could work with. Had a few problems after the purchase, Linda worked hard to see that things were taken care of and to see that I was comfortable with everything. I would recommend Linda to friends and family any time. She will be my agent to buy or sell from now on.

When you asked me "how I know Linda," I felt I had to put "other" because I know her in several different capacities. Linda has been my friend for over 15 years. She has also sold a home for my husband and I and she also found us a perfect condo. I don't think I know anyone more professional and thorough than, Linda. I know other friends that she has worked with in buying and selling their homes and we all have the same opinion of her...she's the best in the business!

We were forced to sell my 85 year old mother's house. Linda was wonderful. She treated mom with the utmost respect and very gently. She answered all of our questions and the house sold very quickly. She gave us the ideas we needed to make it more marketable and handled the offers with speed and made it an easy process for all of us.

I met Linda after a bad experience with another agent. Right away after talking to Linda I knew I was in safe hands. Linda knew exactly what I was looking for and she took liberty to add houses to our visit list. The first day of our house search I found the house I wanted. That that was not even on my radar. She is a very trust worthy person and If I plan to buy a house again in future I will go to no other but Linda. She gained my Trust!

Linda was awesome! She advised us against doing costly improvements I had planned and she was spot on. They were not needed, she saved us a lot of money and the house sold for full asking price in about 5 days! She also is helping us buy a condo and did some serious "thinking outside the box" to get us what we needed. I will recommend Linda to anyone wanting to buy or sell in the Columbus area.

Linda responded immediately and was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. As a first time home purchaser, I was not familiar with the process and Linda was sure to take the time to walk us through the entire process and all of the documentation to ensure that we understood everything. She was always very professional and very easy to work with. Linda was also extremely accommodating to our busy schedules and was able to show us homes during all times of the day and on weekends. She took time to pull together detailed market information for each of the communities that we were looking to purchase from and reviewed these numbers with us. This really made it easy to compare the homes and see how they were priced for the neighborhood. If it was not for Linda, we would likely not have ultimately purchased our dream home. Within one hour of the home being listed in MLS, Linda had called me to let me know that she found a home that we may like at a great price and we immediately scheduled the first viewing. She worked with us and provided very honest and professional guidance through the process of submitting an offer. Due to her urgency, we were able to go into contract on the home just hours before other offers were submitted. I also felt extremely comfortable knowing that Linda was with us during the process of finalizing the loan and the purchase. She reviewed each of the documents with us and immediately called out if anything appeared incorrect and suggested we did not sign until it was corrected. Our first home purchase experience was a great experience very largely due to the fact that we were working with a great realtor. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone looking to purchase in Columbus.

I have had the pleasure of working with Linda on 4 occasions, 3 sales and 4 purchases. Her professionalism and attention to detail far exceeded my expectations each time. Very few agents are as forthcoming with what you need to do to your property to sell it, however, it works! Would use again happily.

We went to Linda four years ago when making a move from Circleville, Ohio to Grove City. Linda showed us several homes and condos......finally she found "the one"! We love living in Grove City and Thanks to Linda that happened. She worked very hard to get us where we are. She is very professional and gives so much of her time to help you. We are now working with her in getting a condo for some of our family. Would highly recommend Linda for all of your Real Estate needs.

Being a newbie to selling property, Linda was so helpful in navigating the way. While there were may bumps along the way nothing seems to phase her. She was understanding and always kept my on track. This process wouldn't have been as smooth without her.

Linda provided expert service to me. Selling my property proved to be a complicated process as two potential deals fell through. Linda remained supportive and diligent in offering expert advice and counseling through the selling process. With her help, I was able to sell my home quickly despite the aforementioned snags. Linda worked very hard to help me and I was especially impressed with her timely and helpful communication.

Linda was very helpful to me, I asked her to be honest, and she told me she was no other way. I appreciated that. I painted a few walls in my basement ,as she told me to. A man came out to take pictures inside and outside my house. It was then on the market, and I had a contract in 3 days. Then Linda was very helpful in finding me a condo. I am happy were I live.

Our experience with Linda couldn't have been better. She is very knowledgeable of the local area and was prepared when she met with us to give us advice for listing the house. Throughout the process she kept us informed and was always easy to reach if we had questions. We knew that she was always working with our best interest in mind. We were extremely satisfied with her role in the somewhat stressful process of selling our house. We have already recommended her to several people and will continue to do so.
