The Locker family has been an integral part of Real Estate sales and development in Forest Heights since 1990 when Linda’s father, Gary Locker, was the lead Realtor for the Developer. His office was in a trailer where Starbucks is now located. Linda’s brother, Bryan Locker, who had been working as an attorney downtown, joined Gary in 1996. These were the days they used a lottery system when opening up a new area to develop in Forest Heights. Contractors would “win” their choice of lots when their ticket was pulled. Read more...

“I’ve purchased and sold 9 homes in my lifetime and along the way I have worked with 17 real estate agents. By far, Linda Locker rates heads above them all. I had the pleasure of working with Linda as both a buyer’s and seller’s agent. Not only is she an exceptional and attentive Realtor, she knows the market inside and out, beautifully staged my home; and coordinated and was on location for all viewings and even coordinated and supervised inspections and repairs. And she follows through on everything. She is committed to her clients. I enthusiastically recommend Linda. I credit her for two great residential transactions.”
“We have bought and sold real estate all over the country and without a doubt Linda Locker is the best agent we have ever worked with. When we decided to put our home on the market, several of our friends and neighbors highly recommended Linda. Working with Linda was one of the best decisions we have ever made; she is professional, knowledgeable, and well connected. Linda sold our home for full price after less than one week on the market. Following the offer, Linda was there every step of the way, from the inspection to the final signing. Linda went above and beyond the call of duty and helped in ways that no other realtor has. We truly can’t say enough good things about Linda; her hard work and positive outlook actually made the process of selling our home a pleasure – a definite first for us!”
“We have known Linda Locker who successfully marketed our property in Forest Heights. Her professional skills are far beyond words. She is very customer friendly, knows precisely the market conditions and extremely conversant with current property prices. Rest assured, she works with property owner’s best interest in mind and has the right negotiating skills. We would never think of working with any other Real Estate agent if we were to market our property again.”
“Linda was a whirlwind of expertise and experience, leading our family through listing our home and finding our next. Her humor, patience, and critical eye gave us confidence in our search and made for a smooth and rewarding process.”
“My husband and I have bought and sold 3 houses before we worked with Linda so we have some experience with home buying. We were blown away with the level of professionalism and skill Linda brings to the table. Not only did she sell our house in under a month, for just about asking price, she guided us through every step of the way. This included details like finding the best contractors at the most reasonable prices, hiring a professional decorator to stage the house at no cost to us, and bringing only serious buyers to look at the house so our lives were the least disrupted. Selling a house can be very stressful, but Linda made it as easy as possible. We would not use anyone else!”
