We enjoyed working with the energetic Linda Driggs. She is highly professional and does a beautiful picture portfolio of your house. She outlines what will be done and in what time-frame. She responds in a timely fashion and keeps one apprised of showings with feedback. From the time we signed our contract and closed, we were kept informed of everything that needed to be completed. I highly recommend Linda and her assistant Chantelle if you plan to list your house.
I had a very unique home to sell on Siesta Key which required real talent to market. It was an authentic Mexican style home which proved difficult to sell. Linda assisted us in staging and appealing to a greater market of buyers. The brochure was very professionally designed and she was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we got as much exposure as possible. Needless to say, after being on the market for the previous year, our home sold in 18 days with Linda. She and her associate, Chantelle, were always there for us, answering our calls promptly and making sure the transaction closed smoothly. I am highly recommending her and her team to market your home. I'm sure it will be as wonderful an experience as we encountered.
It is my turn to thank Linda and Chantelle for your kindness, your time, your expertise, your diligence and your attention to detail. You made our home buying experience go smoothly and flawlessly . We always felt prepared and supported. Your recommendations were insightful and clear and we were confident that we had an experienced professional team behind us. You are truly ambassadors for Lakewood Ranch and Michael Saunders & Company. If you ever need a further endorsement just let us know. Now that we are neighbors, we look forward to running into you around town.
My husband and I were looking for a realtor who would work hard to sell our house that had already been on the market for a year. We found that in Linda Driggs. At our first meeting she came prepared with a market analysis and specific recommendations for what we needed to do and what she would do to get our house sold. Throughout the 6 months it took her and her awesome assistant, Chantelle, to sell the house, with a number of unforeseen problems with the house to be solved along the way, Linda never lost her positive, focused attitude and kept us positive and focused as well. Linda and Chantelle kept us up-to-date on showings and feedback, and exceeded our expectations in the support and help they provided. We are grateful for their professionalism and highly recommend them.
Selling our property with Linda was exactly what I hoped and expected from a top agent – pure professionalism with promised and delivered high expectations. We had been listed on the market with a previous agent and was very disappointed. When I met Linda, I felt I finally chose the team I was looking for in the beginning. Although I had some worry about being let down again, Linda didn’t disappoint and surpassed all my expectations. She was all hands on deck from the beginning, discussing the market, competitive pricing, professional staging (where she also included large custom art work that she painted herself specifically for my foyer), stunning photography and videography! After almost a year of no movement, she had my property under contract in 10 days. From listing to closing, she and her team were always available and making sure every detail was precise. I highly recommend Linda Driggs.
Not only did I have the pleasure of working with Linda Driggs, but a great experience. My house was on the market for 6 months prior with another realtor with little movement. I had decided to interview other realtors once my contract was up and when I met Linda I knew she was the one! She is definitely a professional who guided me every step of the way, plus she is a warm, caring person who is fun to work with. I had two contracts the second week she took over. My house sold within two months! I would highly recommend Linda and give her 5 stars for a job well done.
Linda is the real deal! A true professional. She doesn't just list your home. She does all the right things to make the sale happen. Her contacts & support people are outstanding. If the seller or buyer need to find a resource in Sarasota, she can make it happen. Linda found a buyer for our home in University Park in less than one week. If you want to buy or sell a home in the greater Sarasota area, you could not to better than the Linda Driggs Team.
As a luxury design home specialist with John Cannon Homes, working with high-end clients in Sarasota and Manatee counties, what I value most about Linda Driggs is her ability to understand the new construction process and her conscientious follow-up with her clients as well as us. Linda proved to be not only extremely professional and personable, but also skilled at follow-through when it came time to pull all the pieces and issues together on behalf of her client.
Linda and Chantelle were amazing through the whole process of finding and purchasing a home in Lakewood Ranch. We had a very short time frame to find a home that worked for our family and they really came through for us.
Thank you Linda for your professionalism, hard work and dedication to making our home sale experience a smooth and successful one.
Linda gave me straight answers from the beginning. She suggested the best way to sell my property. I was always able to contact her with a question. She got the price I wanted within a month. The closing was prompt and professional. I would recommend her.
The Linda Driggs Team is awesome! We are working on a transaction as we speak and Chantelle could not be more helpful. They are the one of the most professional teams I ever worked with. They truly have their clients best interest at heart. I and their clients are blessed.
We are so glad that Linda was recommended to us to find our new home. Linda is a pleasure to work with and so knowledgeable about the market. She turned our “wish list” for a property into a reality. Linda is a true professional and on top of every detail. When Linda says "I will do all I can to help you", she means it! She made our home buying experience easy. We appreciate all she did for us!
Linda Driggs was an excellent realtor for our home search in Sarasota. We were relocating from Tampa and were not familiar with the area. Linda spent time educating us about all of our options in regards to neighborhoods and the current Sarasota market. We ultimately ended up downtown Sarasota and could not be happier with our choice. We are thankful for Linda’s guidance and expertise throughout the entire process!
I am very pleased to write this testimonial. We met Linda when we moved to Sarasota from Dallas some twenty years ago. My husband John joined a group of runners Linda ran with and next thing we knew Linda became our friend and she made sure that we became part of the running community. And so it ensued that she became both our Buyer’s Agent and Seller’s Agent of choice six times since then. In the past few months she represented us in the sale of our home and the purchase of our new condo. As a Buyer’s Agent, Linda goes through great lengths to determine likes, dislikes, neighborhood preferences and predetermined price priorities etc. Using this knowledge she shows only properties that fit making the difficult process of buying a home easier and faster. This time was no exception as we found a condo under construction on the bay with sunset views unparalleled! As a Seller’s Agent, her expertise in the value and pricing of property ensures that the property does not stay on the market for too long. Prior to listing the property, her professional opinions, as well as recommendations for the people she has used in the past for staging and creating beautiful photography, tour and brochures are right on! This time the property was listed on a Monday, shown twice on Tuesday and we had an offer on Thursday, closing three months later. A great testimony to Linda’s and her assistant Chantelle’s hard work and expertise! Once a contract is on the table, Linda provides great contract review/negotiation abilities. Her professionalism and friendly disposition earns the respect of other realtors making transactions pleasant and smooth. Once our counter offer was accepted, she was able to make sure we were able to get the house inspected quickly. She made sure she was with us during the inspection process and again when the buyers came through for final inspection before closing. At closing, she again provided support and guidance and a big hug when it was all done! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would recommend Linda Driggs as your agent. Her indepth knowlege of the industry and market, along with her strong work ethic makes her an excellent real-estate agent. Her assistant Chantelle is also a true gem--supporting Linda and providing excellent, personalized service as well. I highly recommend their team for your real estate transaction.
Linda was the ultimate professional. She had a thorough understanding of the market in which we were selling and provided great advise to us. She and Chantelle, her very component assistant, were timely in there communications with us and we always felt we knew exactly what was happening with our listing. The property sold quickly and it was the most stress free closing we have ever had. She helped us with the pricing and we and the buyers were both happy with the outcome. Whether buying our selling, Linda will always represent us.
We have bought and sold many homes in California, Linda was by far the best experience ever … Linda never missed a detail. The deal is done!!!!!!!! And we are now good friends.
You did it again! Thanks for ensuring that all of our expectations were met on the recent sale of our home in Country Club at Lakewood Ranch. When we initially bought this home we relied on you to scope out the market and assess all the conditions …….you made that happen. We couldn’t think of anyone more qualified to resale our home than you. You, along with your company, have the expertise and backing that gives us the comfort level that the transaction will ‘always’ get done.
My wife and I found Linda Driggs to be professional, patient and beyond thorough in helping get our house sold, and then following through the inspection and walk thru and suggesting an attorney to represent us at the closing. We feel she overcame many roadblocks to make it possible.
Our house was under contract in about 30 days. Linda was absolutely the greatest person to work with. Linda is like the “Energizer Bunny” always running. Linda was extremely professional and the advertising she provided was outstanding. Her contacts throughout the real estate world seem endless. Linda seems to always be available or makes time to be available to answer any questions or provide assistance. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and what the market is doing. Linda also looks out for your best interest during the sale and all the way through the closing. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell a house.
My husband Rick and I adore Linda!!! In every professional way she is just right and correct about everything that she handles. We hope to have a busy relationship with her as soon as we sell our home in Winnetka.
First class treatment and service from Linda from start to finish! Very professional realtor that listens to your needs and gets the job done.
Linda Driggs is one of the most pleasant, friendly, efficient realtors that my husband and I have ever had the good fortune to know! She is an attribute to your company!
Linda is a straight shooter! She gets the job done!
Linda is absolutely fabulous. We had the best real estate experience ever.
Linda Driggs is a consummate professional, organized and detail oriented. We received timely and frequent updates. The brochures for our home were so beautifully done that they generated a lot of interest in our home. We would happily use Linda as our agent again.
Linda is a professional at real estate. I have referred clients to her and vice-versa and she always takes excellent care of all of her clients. I highly recommend her as your real estate professional.
Linda is an excellent realtor. My husband and I wanted to sell my mother’s home in Sarasota while living in Atlanta. I met with Linda one morning. She walked through the house and immediately made a number of suggestions. We listened to her, followed all of her expert advice and we are so glad that we did! Linda also referred me to a store for carpeting and to her superb painter. Both were able to meet with me that same afternoon. The house now really looked like new. At Linda’s suggestion, we didn’t even have to stage it. She had it professionally cleaned and photographed. Linda and Renn, her assistant, were excellent communicators. We called, we e-mailed, we felt like we were always in touch and knew what was going on. My husband is a realtor in Atlanta. He and Linda discussed the plan for the sale before listing it. Linda and Renn immediately forwarded all of the input from potential buyers. Even though it is off season, Linda sold my mother’s home in one week! She gave us excellent advice about how everything works in Florida, which is quite different from Georgia. Linda knows the market, knows how to show a home to its best advantage, knows pricing and how to negotiate. We highly recommend Linda for her expert knowledge of Sarasota real estate, for her great communication skills, for her unbeatable team of professionals and for getting us a great price in a week!
Linda Driggs is a superb realtor! Her years of experience were very obvious from what we needed to do to sell our house but also knew the housing market well. She paid attention to every detail. She is kind and caring as well. We would highly recommend her.
Linda is an intelligent, energetic professional who obviously enjoys working with people. We have been pleased that she has represented our property and has brought it to a happy conclusion for both seller and buyer.
Linda is one of the sweetest and most energetic individuals you could ever meet. She is also the ultimate professional. She kept me constantly updated on the status of my condo. She created a stylish set of advertising materials to help promote the sale. And she was upbeat and positive, which was especially encouraging given the obviously challenging times in the market. In short, her support and service were outstanding.
Linda Driggs recently assisted in the sale of my father’s home on Siesta Key. Her level of effort, communication and professionalism throughout the process was exemplary. She really went above and beyond to help my father get the home sold so that he could start his new life in Colorado. We truly appreciated her assistance, and highly recommend her.
Linda’s passion, knowledge and honesty were terrific to deal with over a 2-year period of successful house hunting. The consistency and depth of her advice helped us know we were working with a professional with very high integrity. We relied on her thinking and deep business knowledge of the market, the builders and the industry. She gives back so much to the community with her time and personality. We consider Linda a true friend who is also excellent in her profession.
Patty and I have to give Linda a big 5 STARS for her excellent service. First she provided us with a first class education as to the city of Sarasota and its surrounds after which she began to show us properties that were consistent with our needs and desires. We found the Michael Saunders web site invaluable for providing us access to all of the properties of interest to us. And Linda was always willing to answer all of our questions about each and every one of the many properties that attracted our attention and was willing to show any of them to us. She speedily and cheerfully answered each and every one of our many phone calls. Finally as we were prepared to place an offer, Linda helped us understand tax issues related to the various developments as well as HOA and other associated fees and costs – some of which were hard to spot. All in all, we could not have found a more effective, efficient and cheerful agent! As such, we are without any reservations in recommending Linda Driggs and giving her five stars.
Linda Driggs recently represented us on the sale of my wife’s house and the purchase of our new home. We could not have had a better experience. Linda helped us find our new house quickly, and coordinated our offer and purchase procedure in an easygoing, yet very professional manner. She was attentive to our needs and available at a moment’s notice to help with any issue that came up. I highly recommend Linda Driggs to anyone looking to sell their house or buy a new one.
Linda provided me with outstanding, professional, and caring Real Estate service during a difficult time in my life! I would recommend her without reservation to any client in the Sarasota area and beyond.
It has been wonderful working with Linda since day one!!! She is extremely well organized, well prepared, and knowledgeable and works very hard for her client. Selling our house in University Park was a difficult decision. She has made the process go smoothly. Shopping for a condo in downtown Sarasota with Linda Driggs is easy. She plans the visits well, organizes all of the information and knows exactly what to look for. When it comes time to create a contract, Linda is the best person to make it go smoothly.”
My family just experienced the most professional and pleasurable experience with Linda Driggs, her assistant Renn and the dedication of the Michael Saunders & Co. real estate firm. Our condo unit was marketed using gorgeous photography, an enticing description and extensive area coverage. Linda went above and beyond, especially since we are in New York – she took control as if it were her own unit to sell. A buyer was found quickly and the closing went smoother than expected. We are genuinely thankful for having made this connection and would highly recommend Linda and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell.
This was the second home that Linda helped us sell. The first experience was so exceptional we never thought about using anyone else for our agent this time. Linda is the ultimate professional. She is tireless, detail oriented and always has her client’s interest as her number one priority. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone and everyone. I look forward to working with Linda again in the future.
Linda Driggs is the best. We listed our home with Linda, and it was under contract in just six days, with two offers. She is the perfect professional, always keeping her client’s interests in mind.

Linda is the most professional, thoughtful, and patient realtor we have ever worked with. After driving her crazy for 15+ years, she finally found us a property on Siesta Key that we love! Most realtors would have given up on us long before that, but not Linda. If there was a way to give her 10 stars, we would. We are proud to call Linda not only our realtor, but our friend. She is truly the loveliest camellia the State of Alabama has ever produced.
Linda prepared an outstanding search for properties we would be interested in prior to our visit to Florida. Once we arrived, we toured all of those properties in one day which was fabulous. Then the next day we reviewed the properties we were interested in taking a second look at. This was a really big help to us. Once we decided on the property we wanted, she went to work to get us this condo for the best price! What a great help and experience it was working with Linda. I am sure glad we were recommended to her.
Linda couldn’t have been more amazing! She and her assistant, Renn, went above and beyond! I had already located to another state, and they handled everything for me from meeting repair companies at the house to having the house spotless for the final walk thru. I would hire Linda again in a heartbeat, and I would recommend her to every person considering a real estate transaction. She is so professional, and she knows her business! A pleasure! 5+ star rating!’
Linda is a truly great Real Estate agent. She has helped us over the years with several transactions. She is unsurpassed in her hardworking energy and great attitude. Linda is always professional and does things right the first time. Besides all that, she is charismatic and great to be around. She has helped us both on the selling and buying ends of the deal and we always feel completely taken care of. We wouldn’t dream of doing Real Estate without her.
