Vice President

For Linnea, there is nothing more personal than her home and her family. This is why when she’s helping her clients find a place to call theirs, it’s not just a business transaction. It is about their every day life. Their morning. Their night. Their memories. Their comfort. Their calm. Their chaos. Their place to call their own. Their place to be themselves. That’s why it’s not just business to her. It’s personal. 

Linnea has lived her whole life in the greater Saint John area and currently call Quispamsis home. Her husband, Tim, is a school teacher, and they have two children. She absolutely loves what she does and she loves being creative in her ‘thinking outside the box’ way of redefining real estate. Coming from a family that has, for decades, run a very reputable construction company, she has a well-rounded and solid foundation for her career in real estate.
