About Us Customer
Linda Caplinger, marketing manager & broker of record at HauteHomes.com, started her real estate career at the ripe age of 11 when she decided that it was high time that her mother sold her 1950's era Los Angeles home. Unable to exert her influence at a young age, she grimaced and swore to never be such a "stick in the mud" where a good investment was involved.

Linda attended Rio Hondo College where she was president of the Honor Society, Alpha Gamma Sigma, and went on to graduate with Honors. She then attended the University of California, at Irvine, on a full scholarship where she completed her Bachelor's in Anthropology and a near second Baccalaureate in Economics.

From 1993 to 1997, Linda was licensed as a salesperson and worked for part of that time as a Realtor for Coldwell Banker in the Inland Empire. Despite the country setting in which they worked, Linda's cowboy boots, jeans, and 4-wheel drive truck weren't exactly apropos to the industry image that they were trying to convey. Linda left the industry vowing to return, one day, as a broker where she called the shots and her 4-wheel drive vehicle and cowboy boots would be standard.

After the dotcom crash of 2001, real estate seemed to be the last bastion of the slumping economy and Linda decided the time was ripe to re-enter the industry. Seven-months later, with local real estate knowledge under her belt, not to mention coming out of her ears, Linda applied to sit for the broker's exam. She passed the state exam on her first attempt. Quite a feat for an exam that reports a 68% failure rate.

With her license in her hands, Linda set out to revolutionize the Real Estate world with her internet marketing prowess. Linda enjoys helping buyers find that special home as much as she revels in innovative marketing ideas. She has a deep appreciation for Craftsman, Spanish Revival, and other period homes created in the early 1900's. Linda is a member of the RE Infolink MLS, the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors (SCCAOR), the California Association of Realtors (CAR), and the National Association of Realtos (NAR). Additionally she participates in the Broker Listing Exchange (BLE) which enables Brokers to share their listings to maximize exposure for your home.
