About Linda Batten
Linda's 18 years experience in the Banking industry and 4 years as a Registered Financial adviser has helped her to achieve strong background in finance, insurance solutions, negotiating skills and ability to think outside the square, while still being able to relate to a range of clients, makes her a real asset when dealing with sellers and buyers alike. Linda’s Mum gave her first glimpse into the real estate world when she became a Sales consultant in the 1980’s and Linda gained firsthand experience when buying her first home. Initially entering the industry in June 2014 as a Personal Assistant to Cindy Hosking while completing her training, Linda acknowledges that, while technology and regulation have transformed the real industry into what we know today, Linda believes the basic foundations of sales and service remain unchanged and lives by her motto to “do the right thing” to build relationships based on integrity and trust with her clients and colleagues in all her interactions. Linda utilises her experience to provide you with the ultimate real estate experience. I aim to provide a "Boutique" type service to my clients, rather than deal with a high number of listings. This allows me to give my valued clients the absolute focus and attention they need and deserve. Smart-Agents recently ranked 4th place in sales at TSB Realty for the year ending 31st March 2016, up from 5th place in 2015. So if you’re thinking of selling and you want to move smartly,Call Linda today!
Happy Clients...
We purchased a house through Linda in January 2015. Throughout the process, Linda was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We were very impressed with Linda's reactivity and proactiveness right from the first time we met her at an open home (at a different property!) and were glad to be working with her for our actual purchase. Communication was excellent - professional yet friendly. We received regular updates by text and phone throughout which was really reassuring as first time NZ buyers. Her knowledge of the NZ market and real estate practices was invaluable to us and she was always available and willing to answer our questions and address our concerns. We would enthusiastically recommend Linda to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

We can’t praise Linda enough for her dedication, hard work and above all confidence that she would sell our house, which of course she did. Linda is positive, open and explained everything so clearly. Linda kept in touch throughout the whole process. Linda is very professional with exceptional communication skills. Linda is very efficient and effective in her process of negotiation and along with her skills and experience resulted in the sale of our Lifestyle property. We would like to thank Linda for all her help and dedication in selling our property and highly recommend Linda to anyone buying or selling their property.
Steve & Celina
After trying to market my home privately and dealing with a range of buyers I decided to hand the reigns over to Cindy & Linda. They got me an amazing price for my home. Even after their commission, I received more than I had been offered by a private buyer, and without the hassle. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

We have just bought a property with TSB Realty and Linda & Cindy were our agents. We moved from Auckland and the girls made the transition for us so stress free. We even had a little fridge to use until the removal truck arrived 2 days later. What ever we asked for help with was effortless for this team. We would highly recommend this double act.

Where to start! Linda & Cindy put us at ease straight away, discussed the process well. Linda dealt with showing people through and from day 1 kept us informed & communicated really well. She has looked after us really well and has gone above and beyond many times, I particularly loved how she dealt with our dog! Nothing was too much trouble. The whole process has been a pleasure.
Julie & Richard Hopkins
Cindy & Linda went above and beyond their call of duty while selling my property. They were both upbeat, genuine, confident agents and I would highly recommend them. They made the house selling as easy as it could have been.

Linda & Cindy are very “switched on”. They complement each other in a unique & efficient manner, and nothing fazes them. We found them very helpful and they went out of their way for us. These two young woman are most certainly on the ball and we would recommend them to anyone.
Gordon & Joan Martin
We looked at a property Linda was selling - thought she was an excellent agent. We then found another TSB property, and Linda seemed perfect to sell our character home as she had an obvious passion for these homes and a great deal of knowledge about older homes and what can be done with them. Linda went far beyond what was expected for us. Her knowledge of character homes is brilliant, she communicates so well with not only us, but builders, trades people etc. She always answered my early morning emails! She gave us advice about what to do to get our house ready for the market. She was considerate when getting people through our house. Her background in banking was extremely helpful and she was able to guide us with this. She got to know us as people, we could trust her and although the house took a while to sell I know Linda did everything possible to get us a sale. We were very happy with the outcome. One of the things that impressed me about Linda was her knowledge of buildings and the ideas she had for houses, she offered great suggestions and ideas to add value to the property. She was able to help us with financial stuff like break fees on loans etc,that we knew little about. We could not have sold without her and she was the perfect person to sell our house. I have already suggested Linda to people, such a positive person, with a passion for Realestate. Kelly Madden - 50 Wallace Place

Linda's so passionate about real estate, right from the outset she was open, honest & realistic with us at all times. What we liked the most was the communication - we knew exactly what was happening at all times. Her attention to the smallest details had the biggest impact & our house was sold before we even had an open home. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again, or recommend her to others. Thanks Linda!!!
