A fixture of the Edgebrook community for 24 years and a member of the real estate industry for nearly two decades, Linda Kramer makes dreams come true. A Realtor with Baird & Warner, Kramer specializes in first-time and move-up buyers, empty nesters, and investors in the northwestern suburbs, on the North Shore and in Chicago. She works with a team of lenders, inspectors and attorneys, as well as a transaction coordinator who handles everything once the contract is accepted.
Prior to earning her real estate license, Kramer, a member of Baird & Warner’s President’s Club, earned a degree in marketing and worked in sales as a telecommunications professional for an office furniture business. Transitioning to real estate after becoming a mother, she cites that decision as the best thing she ever did. Since then, she has become a sought-after Realtor known for her knowledge of the markets and her patience. “I am a people person,” she says. “Many of my clients become my friends.”
With 85% of Kramer’s business coming from referrals and past clients, her track record as a reliable and responsive Realtor speaks for itself. “I tell my clients the entire process upfront so there aren’t any surprises,” she relays. “I accommodate their personality and needs by tailoring my approach, starting with the preapproval until the closing table.”
In 2009, Kramer started a community 5K walk/run to raise money for breast cancer research. “I wanted to do something for the community,” she explains. Outside of work, she enjoys walking, running, volunteering, and spending time with her children and dogs.
