Linda Maxwell

Known as “the best kept secret broker” in the business, Linda Maxwell is the Owner-Broker of Premier Properties of New England (PPNE). Originally from the Midwest, Linda is a convert to the region and now proudly calls New England home. Bringing people-oriented values from the “Heartland” to our faster paced East Coast environment, Linda blends customer service excellence with experienced professionalism that fosters the mindset of “go the extra mile” dedication rarely seen in the industry.

Linda expects the highest level of service from her agents as well as herself. The company’s 100/0 Creed, masterminded by Linda in order to ensure client focus, requires that agents take 100% Responsibility for the success of themselves and for the success of the company. Zero stands for 0 Excuses for anything less than excellence at all times and in all circumstances. Coupled with the firm’s 5 Star Success Guarantee, it would be difficult to find another brokerage that is more dedicated to and powered by the success of its clients.

Linda and her entire team also believe that an essential element of life is to “give back”, and they take every opportunity to do so. A leader among her peers in the community, Linda is a passionate advocate for serving our Military Service Members. She is a leader in an industry initiative to build 100 homes across America and Canada in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. She is also a nationally Certified Coach, helping agents across the country succeed in their personal and professional lives. Her famed PPNE’s Silver Achievement Award is given quarterly to the PPNE agent who achieves the highest satisfaction rating determined entirely by client feedback. Linda is a lifelong student of her industry as well as a “self-improvement” advocate, believing that personal growth will help the brokerage better serve clients. A Massachusetts Certified Real Estate Instructor, Linda enjoys sharing her knowledge and teaching real estate pre-licensing classes to those planning a career in real estate.

In her spare time, Linda enjoys traveling the byways of New England, experiencing the region’s rich history, diversity, and historical architectural elements found throughout New England.
