A true “Midwesterner”, I was born and raised in Cincinnati, graduated from DePauw in Indiana, and moved to Illinois for a teaching job at Sheridan School. After teaching, I became a Realtor and found that my teaching skills of patience, guidance, and understanding individuals’ needs worked well for my clients.

Through the years I have been involved in a wide variety of activities including the LF/LB Learning Disabilities Assoc., Lake Forest Caucus, Gorton Community Center, and First Presbyterian Church…I’m quite certain my own life has been enriched by the many dedicated volunteers in the Lake Forest/ Lake Bluff Community.

A few of my favorite things to do are reading, biking, and cooking. Thanks to my husband I’ve learned to enjoy gardening and creating a welcoming yard for a variety of birds! I also love dogs… especially our favorite breed, the “Sheltie”. My husband, Scott, and I have raised two children here and we’ve all loved the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff area for its wonderful people and natural beauty. Truly it is a gift to call this place “home”.

Client Experiences

"We have known Linda Smith for over 40 years as a wonderful friend and as a fabulous realtor. Linda helped us sell two houses and buy another one. We can not praise her enough for her professionalism and for her dedication and enthusiasm in serving her clients’ needs."

"I want to commend Linda Smith for the superb work she did on what turned out to be a difficult sale. From the first day Linda proved to be one of the finest professionals I have ever worked with. She not only attended to every detail of promoting the property but also managed unexpected problems. No matter the time of day that I e-mailed or called Linda, she was available and receptive. I knew at all times that I was in the hands of a capable Realtor, who had my interests in mind. I am most grateful and will recommend Linda to anyone seeking to buy or sell in Lake Forest"
