Linda Turner Personal Real Estate Corporation has helped people buy and sell homes in Kamloops for 26 years, and she wants to share her expertise with you.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer or you’ve been a homeowner for decades, real estate is confusing. “The rules seem to change daily, and the process has evolved a lot over the years,” says Kamloops Realtor Linda Turner. “People can be completely overwhelmed by it, so we specialize in helping them navigate and understand the market and the complexities of buying and selling a home to make it as easy as possible.”
Turner moved to Kamloops as a young wife and mother, 26 years ago, and became an entrepreneur from necessity – her husband was a member of the RCMP so in the early days of their marriage, they moved around often. She says: “I had to be creative in making a job for myself and to give the kids some stability, I chose to work from home. Sometimes we were living in small communities and there were few employment opportunities, so I had to make my own work.”
These days, she and her business partner, daughter Kristy Janota, love to help families settle into the Kamloops community. “It’s about getting them through the whole process of finding schools, ensuring they’re in a neighbourhood that suits their needs and using our knowledge to help match them with their ideal home,” Turner explains. She also enjoys working with seniors. “It’s very satisfying to help them navigate the process of selling their home and retiring with money in their pockets,” she says.
Outside her work, Turner is a glass artist and uses her creativity to give back. “Over the past 16 years I have donated stained-glass windows that have been auctioned to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital and to date, have raised $150,000, plus I do an additional donation for every home sale,” she says. “The reason I chose BC Children’s is that I met one of the hospital’s Miracle Children and that inspired me to want to raise more money for the hospital. Also, many of my clients and extended family members have had to use Children’s Hospital, so I have a place in my heart for it.” Turner supports many other local organizations too. “My goal is to work with people to create and be part of a happy community, both personally, and professionally,” she says.
