TDK Commerical Advisors
Our company TDK Residential Development, LLC has worked with a variety of Realtors in the past, but by far Linda "Z" proved to be the best. In sum, she is a deal maker in every sense of the word. She works to understand your needs, find and market property accordingly, and get the deal done in a timely and fair manner for all parties. She has an extraordinary sense of the local markets. For those deals she finds that we pursue, she is also not afraid to tell us which ones to avoid; honesty that is hard to find. We do business with people that have market intelligence, energy and high integrity: Linda "Z" possess those skills.
Professional office and staff and unmatched experience in the Main Line area. I already knew which house I wanted to buy when I sought out Linda “Z”. I figured there was a reason her name is everywhere on the Main Line so I contacted her. It was a good choice. I appreciate her direct can-do personality. We ended up dealing with an unprofessional selling agent and sketchy buyer who tried to pull a fast one at the last minute but I was glad I had Linda “Z” to handle the situation and close the deal while still protecting my interests.
Linda “Z” is a consummate professional real estate broker. From start to finish she was top notch on the sale of our home. Every step of the way she was hands on and able to insure seamless execution. In addition to having extensive experience along with relationships with the various parties involved (buyer's broker, financing sources and title company) she has a unique ability to remain calm and solve issues as they arise.
Linda “Z” listed my house on a Monday morning in May. She had it sold at the full asking price within 2 hours. Settlement was completed in 30 days. Not one penny was taken off the asking price in buyer demanded 'credits'. The house is on a block of 16 identical twins. It still sold for $40k more than any of the others homes. The most ever paid for a twin on that block, ever! This is all the result of Linda deeply understanding the pricing market, 'reading' the buyers and always protecting the interests of her client, in this case the seller. I can't say enough nice things about Linda's negotiating skills and determination to get the deal done. Janie, her assistant of many years, is a gem too. I give my absolute highest recommendation to Linda “Z”.
If you are looking for an excellent real estate sales professional, have Linda “Z” represent you. You will always receive a quick response to your inquires and receive professional service from a very knowledgeable pro. In my personal life and my business life I have been involved in many real estate transactions and I recognize a true professional when I see one! Linda “Z” is a true professional and her support staff, namely Janie is excellent.

Prior to working with Linda “Z”, we had a completely horrible real estate experience, with the purchase of our last home. This prompted us to research agents and choose carefully, for our next move. We are so glad that we worked with Linda “Z”, because she exceeded all our expectations. She has a tremendous wealth of experience, and is very well connected which is a huge benefit, and gives you the extra edge. Additionally, she is extremely hard working, always available, and truly devoted to giving you personal attention. She has amazing taste, and extraordinary attention to detail, which enables her to point out things about houses that you would have never thought of. Her negotiation skills are excellent. She has all the qualities that a fantastic real estate agent should have!
We wish to extend our sincere gratitude & appreciation for listing & selling our home in Gladwyne. The name Linda "Z" is nearly synonymous with real estate on the Main Line & I must say you came highly recommended from some of our close friends, but considering the uniqueness of our property, Ted & I felt it was in our best interest to interview several agents, some of whom we met with who seemed to put their own interests above their clients. You certainly showed us none of that. We were impressed with your presentation & your hard work & your diligence exceeded our expectations. We were anticipating a long, drawn out process considering the magnitude of this property, but your expertise in marketing not only found us our buyer quickly, but negotiation skills & follow through were outstanding & got us to the settlement table without a hitch. Your business ethics allowed us to feel confident from start to finish. We will recommend you highly to our friends & associates & we look forward to working with you again in our future real estate dealings.
"To you she might be Linda "Z", but she'll always be "Switzerland" to me!"I have nothing but the highest praise for a woman that, prior to a year ago, I knew only by her familiar "SOLD" signs. We met in an unconventional way, under unconventional circumstances. Linda "Z" was a "Transaction Licensee" (a neutral party) in our real estate transaction. Even with legal counsel representing both sides, our negotiations became arduous and communication broke down. This is when Linda "Z" earned her nickname "Switzerland"! "Switzerland" took on a challenging role to put things back together. Her tireless efforts and real estate expertise enabled her to turn things around. But most of all, throughout the entire process, what impressed me the most was her remarkable personality and depth of character. I believe these special qualities are the true key to her success. So, if ever your future plans turn to Real Estate, my best recommendation would be, "You've just got to see "Switzerland"!
Though many agents had called about selling our home this time, we did not waiver in our faith in you, Linda. The truth is that you excel in what you do and deserved this opportunity. We also knew we needed a new strategy to make this sale fast and successful and you were ready with that guiding us on exactly how to get there. There are many different expressions of professionalism and you embody the majority of them. They include confidence, boldness, incredible knowledge, creativity, respect, tact, resourcefulness, persuasiveness, collaboration, commitment, patience and a genuine love for your trade and your customers. We are extremely grateful to have worked with you and to get to know you. Both Michael and I completely attribute this sale to all of these talents and are rewarded in having our work that you directed prove so fruitful. Thank you again so much!
Linda Z is the most competent agent on the "Main Line". She knows the local market, market priorities and trends and gets confirmation from other seasoned professionals to ensure correct market positioning of your home. Following her advice and using her recommended home renovation and home clean-up/preparation experts, we sold our home in 1 day. While we did a lot of the work ourselves, hiring her experts saved money and time. It's better than Angie's List or other resources - she trusts them from their performance and past results.
Linda is wonderful to work with, she is always available, considerate and kind. Her knowledge of the area and market is amazing. She was spot on from pricing my property to settlement, I would never use anybody else. She is the best.
From the moment we spoke with Linda, we knew she was the right agent for us. Her deep knowledge of the main line real estate market helped us identify the best properties that met our criteria and even helped steer us away from properties that weren’t right. Her expertise ultimately led us to our dream home - and when we decided to make an offer, that’s where her skills and experience made a real difference. Without her and Janie’s guidance, I am not sure that we could have navigated the complexities of a home purchase. Her responsiveness and connections to other experts like mortgage brokers and inspectors made it all possible. Linda Z is simply the best
Working with Linda was a total pleasure. She was completely professional, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Both Linda & Janie made a usually stressful process both seamless & smooth. We were very confident that she would get our house sold!
Linda Z and her assistant, Janie, were the most professional and responsive realtors I have ever encountered. Whether 8PM on a weekday OR 9AM on a Sunday, my calls or emails were answered promptly. Linda gave me specific an direct advice on which homes to pursue and how to submit an offer which would likely lead to the most favorable outcome. She allowed me to make decisions and never challenged them, meanwhile would always provide honest feedback. Once we found our house she lead the negotiation process; and even assisted the seller's agent once under contract (in order to make the process go more smoothly and avoid delays). She was also influential in assisting me with the lender's requests. If moving to or from the main line area, I do not expect you will find a better agent. Linda has a deep understanding of the real estate market in the main line, and is very familiar with the area in general. She was able to provide referrals for contractors for the house, attorneys, restaurants, etc. I had a great experience, and it was clear all involved in my deal were impressed. On closing day, I noticed each of my lender, the seller's agent, and the title company all made a point to thank Linda for managing the deal quickly and efficiently. Looking forward to referring Linda to friends/family.
When we decided to sell our Villanova home, we knew we had choices to best achieve our goal. After meeting Linda Z, we knew immediately that she was the agent we wanted to represent us. We found Linda Z to be professional, knowledgeable and personable. Her smile put us at ease as she addressed whatever concerns we had. Her confidence made us realize that she would be our best advocate in one of the most important decisions we ever had to make. From day one, Linda Z, and her wonderful assistant, Janie, were available to us 24/7. We recall making a call one night at 11:00 PM thinking we would leave a message, when to our surprise, the call was answered! Linda Z listened to us. She answered all of our questions. She took immediate action to get things done. We couldn't have asked for a more dedicated agent. While we are thrilled that our home is SOLD, we will miss working with Linda Z and Janie whom we feel are more than just an agent and assistant. They are incredibly hard-working, knowledgeable, professional team whom we highly recommend putting your trust in.
Linda "Z" was wonderful to work with. She was a true professional, honest, extremely knowledgable, accessible, and willing to work to make a deal close. She helped us buy the house of our dreams by mailing out a letter to the local neighborhood to find the house we wanted when there were none for sale. Sure enough, someone responded to her letter and she found us the house we were looking for. Additionally, she spent many hours speaking with the seller to make the deal happen. This purchase took 2 ½ months to close due to a very difficult seller. But Linda never gave up and we made it happen. After the deal was signed, there was no question who was going to sell my existing house. So, we hired Linda to sell the house. She told me the price we should list it for and the price range we would sell it. Sure enough, 3 weeks later we had a signed contract in the price range we expected. The rest is history. Bottom line, if you want someone who is willing to work and hustle to buy or sell your real estate, Linda "Z" is it.
I would recommend Linda Z highly. She sold our home for us in Bala Cynwyd. She is extremely professional, knows the area very well, has a proven track record and is very passionate about her business. She treated our small home as if it were one of her larger, more expensive ones. Linda has a vast array of contacts whom we used for home repairs and were very pleased. Her assistant, Janie always contacted us with upcoming showings. If I had to do it all over, I would use Linda again and again.
In 35 years of my professional practice, I cannot think of anyone who deserves a higher recommendation. Linda “Z” took us through the process with a rare knowledge of her area of expertise, the pros & cons of various ideas & always was available. Her calm demeanor in the face of selling our house was comforting. Her skills & ability to know the pros & cons of the process was frankly unbelievable. At the end of the day, all she had told us occurred. Anyone who selects another realtor is missing an asset.
