More on Linda Harper, REALTOR, So Central PA Real Estate Agent

I have a “U.S. Military on the Move Program” you won’t want to miss out on!  Contact me to see if you are eligible. It’s potentially possible for you to get Cash Rewards, Closing Cost Credits  or a variety of other home related services when buying or selling a home with me.

I love working with 1st time buyers and those relocating here in South Central Pennsylvania, as well as listing homes to sell in this area.  In the past year I worked a good bit in the Gettysburg through the Carlisle area, representing buyers and sellers.  See my testimonials on down the page to show how very pleased they were with my services.

While my broker is based in Harrisburg, I live and sell real estate close to Carlisle PA.

I have successfully worked with military families, finding them exactly the type homes they wanted, in locations where they wanted to live and within their chosen price ranges.   And, look forward to working with many more such military families.

 

PROFILE:

I am a ‘DREAM MAKER’,  ‘LIFE CHANGER’ 

Because whether buying or selling a home, there are life-changing events in the works. Where you need someone on your side, helping each step of the way to make dreams come true!  

With 1st-time buyers, many are leaving their family’s home, schooling or shared living situation.

And, for those going into new living situations like those newly married, where each could have a different dream for their future lives together (which could require my good negotiating skills to bring your ideas together).  

Or, perhaps newly divorced or widowed and facing a new lifestyle, new goals.

Then there are those seeking to ‘rightsize’ to digs more appropriate (smaller, larger or retirement home) for their new life, where there will be unique changes in their lives.

For those relocating to this area, maybe to a new job or position, they are further changes and uncertainties.  Sometimes, not yet sure what dreams they have for their new life.

And, so it goes with sellers who will be stepping forward into new lives in new locales.

Big changes for all parties!

In each unique situation, each one of you has a dream of what you want that new life to look like!

The neighborhood, area and type of home you choose should support your dream of that new lifestyle.

THIS IS WHERE I COME IN — to assist you in making your dreams of that new life a reality! For whatever you want that new life to look like, at whatever price or wherever you want that to be — my promise to you is that I will find as perfect a home, at the best price, to help you bring your dream future to a reality!  It is what I love to do and have been quite successful at doing so for many!

My Motto:  “I believe in the American Dream of Home Ownership — Let me help make that dream a reality for YOU”

Special Attributes:  I see the positives and unique features of houses and how those can be  turned into someone’s home, or what changes could best build on the home’s existing assets. 
My past 30+ years’ experience personally buying and flipping homes allows me to quickly discern if an issue is something that could be easily resolved or if a new buyer should seek a contractor’s or engineer’s input. Thereby, helping my clients feel confident about their decisions.

Sellers: Call or email me for a Complimentary Market Analysis of your home’s current worth within your market setting. Let me explain how you need the many Howard Hanna Incentives that can overcome any buyer’s objection to buying your home! These are, bar none, the Best in the Business — we have truly ‘thought of everything’ to help make buyers’ housing needs a reality!  Win, Win for Buyers and Sellers!

Buyers: Arrange an appointment to ‘Interview’ me to see if we’re a good fit to work together towards making your dreams of a future lifestyle a reality.  I will also explain the many unique programs we have which can assist you in making  your dreams come true.

Howard Hanna Advantage Programs are of benefit to most parties. 

  • Our 100% Money Back Guarantee — If for any reason during the 1st year of ownership, a buyer decides they don’t like living there, we give back 100% of the purchase price of the property.  A very desirable program for the seller who PAYS nothing for this.   A home run for a buyer as well.
  • Buy Before You Sell Program — allows you to purchase another home based on equity in your present home, with only paying interest until your home sells.
  • One Stop Shopping — we have our own great Howard Hanna Mortgage Company which has a wide array of mortgage options to fit most needs.  Our Howard Hanna Insurance Broker gets most people the best, most cost effective insurance around. Plus our Barristers’ Land Abstract title company works closely with all of us for smooth settlements.


TESTIMONIALS:

Linda Harper is a gem! I’ve personally bought and sold homes on multiple occasions and have also participated in several real estate transactions for my employer. As a result, I’ve dealt with dozens of agents over the course of several years. No one comes close to Linda. She’s friendly, engaging, attentive, looks out for the best interest of her clients and makes the process streamlined. She truly makes you feel like you are her only client. The focus and service received was absolutely outstanding. If you need an agent to help you buy or sell, look no further than Linda!

Working with Linda was fantastic. She was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to what we were looking for during our home search. She sent us listings as they came on the market. She kept us fully updated from the time we made the offer up through the closing. During the pre-closing walk through, she made sure I checked that all appliances, systems and windows were working properly. She definitely has her client’s best interest at heart. Her knowledge of real estate and the real estate market is clearly evident. We recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. We will definitely use her to buy or sell our next home.

“We met Linda while she was hosting an Open House on a house that was out of our price range, but we were interested in buying a house. After giving her our particulars in what we were looking for in a house, within 48 hours we started receiving listing data from Linda. I asked Linda if one of the home we wanted would pass VA funding standards. She said yes  and arranged for us to see the home that day. Well, the long and short of it..Linda made it happen! She knew what the VA would require in the house. She was right on the money of the estimated price range that the VA would agree to. She even found us a better option when it came to home owners insurance. This lady knows her stuff! She will tell you what’s what in the real estate market. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy. She is the agent for you!”.

Ray and Miyuki Thompson.  Purchased Camp Hill PA

NOTE from Agent:  This 1st-time buyer couple had newly relocated from Japan, so didn’t know exactly where they wanted to live. His work was on the West Shore (still greater Harrisburg Metro area), so, I concentrated our efforts there.  I, along with great help from Howard Hanna Mortgages, had to overcome some obstacles with Japanese banks which was a unique experience. But in the end, we made it happen for this newly married couple, new to our area!  Similar to last month’s sale of  one of my listings where my seller lived in Ecuador, and so had to deal with translation issues during the settlement process.   What fun all this international dealing has been!  Again, all types of dreams came true to all involved!

“LINDA HAS A HUGE HEART FOR EACH AND EVERY CLIENT. SHE ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS WITH THOROUGH ANSWERS. HER RESEARCH AND KNOWLEDGE OF EACH AREA IS FANTASTIC. I WOULD RECOMMEND GREATLY AND CURRENTLY CONTINUE TO WORK WITH HER AS I FIND MY NEW HOME!”

Kimberly Remeta, Seller of East Pennsboro, PA

————————————————————————————————————————————————

“Linda helped with everything. Everyone says that buying a home is a long and overwhelming process, but not with Linda. My husband and I could not believe how easy it seemed. She had everything very organized and prepared for us. She is extremely knowledgeable of her community and what to look for in a home. Thank You Linda.”

Sheryl and Jeff Leriche, 1st-Time Buyers of Single Family Home, Mechanicsburg PA

Agent  Note:  Met Sheryl at a Harrisburg Open House, but upon learning she and husband both work on West Shore, I set them up to get auto alerts of  homes coming on the market in that area.  They made 3 offers on 3 homes before getting the  right home for their new lifestyle, not only homeowners, but new parents to a beautiful daughter. Their dreams certainly did come true in so many ways.

————————————————————————————————————————————————

Owner/seller called the Harrisburg Colonial Park office to give a verbal  testimonial on Linda Harper, REALTOR, who represented her in the sale of her home. Ms. Mora responded that  “Linda’s work was remarkable and the effort that she put into selling the home was stellar”.
Holly Mora, seller,  later wrote in a personal note to agent:  “Linda was my 4th REALTOR, but instead of just sticking a sign in the ground, Linda told me exactly what had to be done to get the house sold, and when those issues were completed, the house went under contract that very week!

Holly Mora, seller of 911 Valley Rd, Single Family Home, Enola, PA

Linda,

“We just wanted to thank you again for helping our home ownership dreams come true.  We  look forward to the next few months while we see our house being built. Thanks again for your hard work.”

They later wrote, once in their newly built home:

“Linda was amazing. Very thorough in her assistance and knowledge. Never felt pressure to buy or to put in an offer, she was a great agent and would definitely recommend her.”

Mike Deery and Josh Funk

First-Time Buyers of a Penns Woods Single Family Home, Harrisburg PA, new build.

Agent Note: I negotiated on custom upgrades which added significant value, as well as lot price.

“Linda was extremely patient with me, and definitely showed her knowledge and expertise during my nearly 2 years of searching and securing property.  I would recommend her to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a property.”

Scarlet Webster, Buyer of Enola PA Single Family home.

Agent Note:  Buyer got married in the middle of the purchase process — had many lifestyle dreams come true!

Linda, “Thanks for all your help. This wouldn’t have happened for us if we didn’t have such a caring and dedicated Realtor like you.”

~ Abbey, Lance & Mayson McConnell, 1st Time Buyers of Single Family Home, Marysville PA.  

Agent Note: I assisted them thru many hurdles toward achieving their lifestyle dream!

————————————————————————————————————————————————

“Linda Harper was so good with us. She spent many weekends showing us homes and was in contact with us the fulltime. Living in N.Y. made it very hard, but that didn’t stop Linda.”   “Howard Hanna is very lucky to have Linda on their staff.  She spends time (with clients) and is very helpful.”  “Yes, we would recommend Howard Hanna and Linda Harper to others.”   

Bob & Judy Johnson, purchased Single Family Home, Harrisburg PA.

Agent Note: Buyers relocated to Harrisburg from Long Island, NY, to live close to their daughter and son-in-law.  Helped them further that lifestyle dream!

———————————————————————————————————————————————–

“I have worked  with Linda Harper for the past 7 years as both a buyer and a seller. Linda got me through tough sales (of investment properties).  Linda not only assisted me with all aspects of the sales process, but stood up to the manager of the construction team, forcing them complete the work needed to get the properties past inspection process in my absence (when out of the country). I have considered Linda Harper to be my permanent real estate agent for life.  Working with Linda, will guarantee you the best job any agent can deliver. She is one tough cookie!  

Denise Fahie, Dauphin County Investor

“Linda is an exceptional person and realtor.  Our experience with her and Howard Hanna has been top notch.   We are so blessed to have found Linda. She goes overboard for us! Thank You.”  “Linda sold the house before the paint on the sign was dry, lol”.

Steve Downey, Seller, 3 Pine Tree Dr. Single Family Home, New Cumberland PA.

Agent note:  Home went under contract in 2 weeks. Had competing offers following first Open House.  Steve said, ‘Linda had it sold before the paint was dry on the For Sale Sign out front’.

“Linda went above and beyond throughout the sale of my investment property, taking care of all the details while I was out of the country.”

“Linda de-mystified  the real estate  processes  for us as first-time buyers.”   Abaz and Ilse Kryemadhi, Mechanicsburg 1st Time Buyers.

———————————————————————————————————————————————-

“Linda kept a positive attitude and smiled the whole time, even when we thought we’d never find  the right home for us.  But she never lost hope and just kept on going the extra mile till we found it.”
