The Sage Story – Real Estate Expert
Linda Walters formed Sage Realty to help home buyers by giving them an advocate for them, instead of the way the industry developed – based on representation of the seller only. Even now, buyers have fewer rights to fiduciary care in most transactions. Having your own agent should cost the buyer absolutely nothing!
Because she trained at a top law firm and worked for many years as a real estate attorney, Linda knows all the ins and outs of real estate. She is used to being on the client’s side for the entire process. Few agents have the negotiation skills or training she offers to her clients.
Sage Realty began as an exclusive buyer’s agency company. We still do not seek out or assist sellers, unless we have a prior client relationship with them.
Linda Walters, the broker in charge of Sage and its founder, is certified as a REALTOR®, an Accredited Buyer Representative, an Accredited Luxury Home Specialist and a certified Senior Real Estate Specialist. She has been trained as a real estate mediator. She is a certified mediator for Suburban West Realtors Association where she has taught other agents.
Linda believes in being active and giving back to her community. She serves in many capacities at her local church and previously served on the Board of Directors of Surrey Services for Seniors, a local resource for aging Main Line residents. Sage supports Surrey by sponsoring various events, including its annual Main Line Antiques Show Preview Party (see photo below). Linda received a 2008 Certificate of Appreciation from REALTOR Magazine for her dedication to Surrey.
Linda has also served as a foster volunteer for the Delaware County SPCA, which places many pets in homes until they are ready for adoption, thereby almost doubling their capacity to help these animals.
