Welcome to my website!

With extensive knowledge of Northern Virginia and years of experience in the real estate industry, I know that buying or selling a home can sometimes be a difficult and emotional experience, but there’s no reason it can’t also be thrilling and a lot of fun! I have sold hundreds of houses from starter condos to large luxury homes, from older homes to new construction, and I can help you.

I am proud of the fine reputation I have earned throughout my years in real estate. Starting my career in the late ‘70s when interest rates were climbing to a peak of 18%, I have seen many fluctuations in the market. Through it all, I have never lost my love for all things concerning real estate. I feel fortunate to be able to help my clients with what is most likely the largest investment of their life. If you are the seller, my goal is to sell your home at the best possible price and terms, and if you are the buyer, to negotiate the same on your behalf. Based on a foundation of honesty, integrity and attention to detail, I believe the most successful transactions are win-wins for both sides.

In addition to a successful general brokerage career, I have represented several local builders as both an on-site Sales Manager and as a VP of Sales and Marketing. Currently, I have an affiliation with an exceptional custom builder who can remodel your existing home or build a new home on your lot, or I can find a lot for you. Whether you build from stock plans or have an architect design your dream home, I have the experience and knowledge to guide you every step of the way.

Please feel free to contact me if you are considering buying, selling or building, or if you just have questions about the real estate market in general.

I look forward to hearing from you.

" Excellent professional service above and beyond expectations."

" Linda is an exceptional realtor. She consistently went the second mile to help us make our home attractive and sell it quickly. We are very appreciative. Thanks!"

" Linda took all the pressure from my shoulders. I wanted to list at a lower price, but Linda did a really good market analysis, had her office preview the home, called some other agents and came up with a higher price, she was absolutely right. The first three days we had a contract. That did not work out but in two weeks we had a very good contract with an excellent backup contract. The situation was difficult, but Linda was superb. She was firm, professional, and handled all of the problems along the way, in a very smooth and soothing manner. Marketing of the property was excellent, with lovely photos ending up with mailings and a brochure. I even sent my family in England pictures of my home. I have known Linda for many years and, of course, have known she is wonderful at her job, but when it is your own home it is very different because of the emotional turmoil. I cannot thank her enough for doing what she always does so well and understand why her many clients lover her so much. I would willingly use her again and refer her to anyone I can. She really cares, and that is what makes her so special."

" Linda was outstanding to work with. She knows the market, has great contacts, actively helps solve issues. Best agent we have worked with in 32 years. "

" Linda French is extremely competent and thorough. She provided a complete picture of the market while we were listing and selling our house. Linda helped us get the house ready for the market with valuable insights into the updates that would give the house more appeal. She did an outstanding job of negotiating and explaining the details of the offers we received. Linda is patient, helpful and upbeat, which we really appreciated during stressful periods of the process. We highly recommend Linda French for buying or selling real estate -- she is ethical, personable and effective."

" Linda represented the builder when we bought our new home several years ago. She impressed us with her professionalism and patience during our purchase process. We stayed in touch over the years and when it came time for us to sell she was the obvious choice for her knowledge of the neighborhood, the local market, client and professional contacts and extensive real estate experience. Her good advice and marketing strategy led to multiple full-price offers at our first open house. Getting what you want is success. Wanting what you get is happiness. Selling right away is priceless. Linda also helped us buy our new home. She has gone above and beyond our expectations in dealing with our new builder. We highly recommend Linda French to help you sell or buy your home. She is honest, smart, savvy and very nice!"

– D.R.

" Linda is an experienced agent with lots of knowledge and effective strategy which helped us sell our home within 6 weeks despite the winter and holiday season. She provided us with great advice and took care of all the required tedious processes to complete the sale. We highly recommend Linda to be your trusted agent."
