My clients appreciate my perspective and understanding of the mortgage lending process. I work with all home buyers, whether you're a first time buyer, expanding family, downsizing or purchasing a second home, or looking for your next investment. I market for a wide variety of properties spanning from mobile homes and new construction to luxury real estate and any price point between!

While I do not have super powers, I do like to find creative solutions to help my clients with their home buying and selling goals. My radius spans as far as I remain knowledgeable about the area so I can keep my promise of providing the best service possible.

I'm an active member of the Oconee County Chamber of Commerce, where I recently received recognition for Volunteer of the Year. While I cheer for the UGA DAWGS, I'm also a huge fan of my actual dog, Ninja the Diva Dog (some might even say a little obsessed!) If you're a dog lover too, I would love to share photos!

Some of my favorite local recommendations are the Classic Center for events, UGA games, and Chops & Hops for a bite to eat (my favorite is the salmon!).

    My Client Testimonials

    couldn't have asked for a better real estate agent.Ms Linda is absolutely a wonderful person. She's professional,hard-working ,dedicated, and knowledgeable. It was a joy, and an honor to have her working with my family.She's have done a wonderful job for us from the beginning to the end of this home buying process. Great job Ms Linda
    Linda came highly recommended and certainly lived up to her reputation. She was so helpful learning the UGA market. We could not have asked for better service and professionalism."
    "Linda is great, so knowledgeable and willing. If she doesn't have an answer she is sure going to get it for you as soon as possible! She was there for every steps of this challenging process, and never wavered for a moment on level of support she was providing. I know we would not have been able to secure our new home without here. Thanks Linda!"
    Linda was our realtor angel throughout the journey from seeing whats available to actually buying our home. She was incredibly professional, patient, helpful, diligent and responsive in all matters. At no point in time did we feel like she was not in our corner and helping sort things out. Could not recommend Linda highly enough. My wife and I built up such a rapport with her that we are rather saddened that our house hunting journey is at an end as we will not see as much of Linda anymore. She is a very safe and supportive pair of hands."

    Linda was so helpful during my move. As a first-time home buyer, there was a lot I didn't know. She patiently explained everything to me, walking me through the process without any issues from start to finish. Even after the closing, she checked in to make sure my move went smoothly. I'd recommend her to anyone.
    Linda was always helpful and upbeat thru the whole process of listing and saleing my home. She returned my calls quickly and answered all my questions with professional knowledge. I would refer her to anyone for top service in listing or buying a new home Marie Norri
    I own a fantastic home in a wonderful neighborhood because of Linda Maples! She is polite, professional and has the drive of a drill sergeant! Upon our first meeting she sat me down and did a client needs analysis to determine what I DID and DID NOT want in a my new home. She was frank about what to expect for my budget and scoured the marketplace looking for homes that suited my specific needs. Linda worked tirelessly seven days a week, night and day (except to go to church) to help me find what I was looking for. The Athens market is very fluid. It is a sellers market as I soon discovered. Georgia has its own MLS system. Only licensed realtors have access to this system. When a house is listed it first goes there and then eventually gets listed, maybe, on apps like Zillow. Not all homes for sale in this marketplace are listed on real estate apps. Those that are listed on these apps have already been picked over by local real estate agents using the Georgia MLS system. At one point I literally watched a listing appear while I was on one of those apps and within an hour of notifying Linda of my interest the home it was under contract with a backup offer in place! Linda knew what I did and did not want and presented listings that met my needs within my budget. Because of the demand in this marketplace you may be required to make a decision rather quickly or lose out. For that reason having a resource like Linda is invaluable. Her approach allowed me to embrace the emotions involved with buying a new home knowing that Linda had my back with the details that I may miss or not know to look for. I don't pack for a vacation the morning I leave because I might forget something in my excitement. The same philosophy applies here. She understands how the market place flows, what to ask and where to look for the home YOU want. She knows builders, contractors and their reputations! She has strong, long term relationships developed over years with other realtors and builders, in and outside of the Athens marketplace. She speaks frankly, is diligent and leaves no stone unturned. She documents everything! She goes about looking for a home as if it was for her family (which she has multiple times in this marketplace). She knows and thinks of things that you would never think of. Did you know Athens-Clarke County has tree save areas? Linda does. Did you know if you buy a house in certain counties there may be additional financing options available to you? Linda does. Do you know the history of the different neighborhoods in and outside of the Athens area and the builders reputation in those neighborhoods? Linda does. Do you know about new construction projects that have not been listed but may be available in the timeframe you wish to move? Linda does. Linda documented every promise that was made to me and insured every promise was kept! As a veteran I hold those who work with me to a military standard. That's what works best for me. That is not for everyone. It was no problem for Linda. She met or exceeded every expectation I had. She was familiar with the nuances of a VA loan and is familiar with all the other financing options involved with a real estate transaction. She has relationships with local mortgage companies which allowed me to compare interest rates which gave ME leverage in negotiating my financing. Linda found what I was looking for within my budget in the marketplace I wanted to live in. I can think of no part of this process in which Linda did not exceed my expectations. I have absolutely no regrets. For all of the above Linda Maples gets my highest recommendation!
    Linda was wonderful to work with. She is professional, wise, thorough, and caring. She took our concerns seriously and was always there to help. We feel as though we have made a new friend during this process and highly recommend her!" zuser20150716214702133 1321 Twin Oaks Trl, Watkinsville, GA 30677
    Linda responded in a timely manner to my questions/texts/calls. Linda also helped provide multiple estimates for work needed on my home as I live out of state. She made the sale of my 2nd home less stressful and handled many of the details that I was unable to handle being so far away. I recommend her highly.
    We were extremely fortunate to have Linda as our realtor for our first homebuying experience. We had some unique logistical challenges that she helped us navigate, she was our advocate throughout the entire process, and made sure that we were absolutely happy with our home. Her knowledge of the area and the people around it were absolutely essential to us. She answered our questions quickly and thoroughly while maintaining an attitude that made us feel at home. Thank you so much,
    Linda was an invaluable asset when I made my move from Atlanta to Athens. She cleared an entire day to look at houses with me. She was aware of when the initial house I wanted to see came back on the market. When I made my offer she was appropriately aggressive in negotiating with the sellers. Furthermore, she helped me find temporary living accommodations for the month between the beginning of my new job and closing on my new house. I whole-heartedly endorse her for any and all of your real estate needs in the Athens area.

    We loved working with Linda so much to buy a new house we're also going to use her to sell the old house. I felt like we were as important to her as her own family and she worked so hard to make sure we got the house of our dreams.

    Linda Maples is the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. She was extremely professional, organized and helpful. She took the time to listen to our needs and only offered to show us properties that were a match for us. Once we made an offer and were under contract, she took care of every detail for us since we were out of town. She is very knowledgeable about the area, inspections and the closing process. She goes above and beyond to make the entire experience as smooth and easy as possible. She communicates between the seller, the closing attorneys and inspectors so as to make sure the entire process is streamlined. Linda Maples cares about her clients and negotiates on your behalf using her expertise and experience. We highly recommend Linda Maples and would definitely look forward to working with her again.
    Linda was a wonderful agent, she was an absolute joy to work with. Her enthusiasm and creativity were nothing short of spectacular. She would always stay on top of things, and get back with us if she was busy. There was never a time when we felt in the dark. This was not an easy sale, kind of a unique property. But she took on the challenge, and much to our eternal gratitude, she got our house sold within the time frame we were looking for. She exceeded all of our expectations, and I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who wants to sell their home.
    "Linda is very knowledgeable. She was with us every step of the way and handled an unexpected hiccup right at the end. She looked out for our best interest and navigated us through what could have been a big issue. She knew what was important and what wasn't. We were very pleased with her representation and wouldn't hesitate to use her in the future or recommend her to anyone we know that is buying or selling their home." Andrew Maro 120 Rustwood Dr, Athens, GA 30606
    Linda was so professional and knowledgeable. We were so blessed to have her assigned to us as our agent. She handled everything and went above and beyond to make sure we understood the whole process and had what we needed as first time home buyers... Highly recommend, I promise you will not be disappointed."
    Overall, I had an extremely positive and rewarding experience dealing with Ms. Maples. Her dedication to her work and to her clients is unquestionable. Ms. Linda meticulously explained the process every single step of the way. She expediently answered any questions I had throughout the entire process and went above and beyond what I expected. She spent countless hours of her own time in order to quickly sell our house in a highly saturated housing market in our neighborhood. I will never use another realtor if I can control it and she will be handling the purchase of my new home. She is truly a top quality realtor. Second to none."
    "I felt I was in excellent hands with Linda's knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail. I couldn't have asked for a better agent in my corner and would recommend Linda to anyone in the housing market in Athens."
    Linda Maples was AWESOME! The best day in my search for an old home was when I met Linda. After 3 other realtors (all named Linda or Lynn) who did basically nothing, Linda made my life SO much better in my search. She was on top of what I was looking for, very knowledgeable about old homes, and very pleasant and professional. Honest with me when I would ask her opinion of something which I greatly appreciated. I can never say enough about Linda and will use her again in the future as well as referring her to others. THANK YOU LINDA!!!"

    "Linda has helped us buy 2 condos in Athens and has been a complete joy to work with from the search to the closing. She goes above and beyond and has amazing follow up. Every detail was so easy and I highly recommend her!"
    "Linda Maples with Coldwell Banker Upchurch Realty in Athens, Georgia was a Godsend for myself and my family during our first home-buying experience. Her knowledge of the Athens and surrounding areas' real estate market, as well as every detail of the process, was exceptional. She took into consideration my family's specific needs and wants and made the entire experience as painless as possible. I felt she truly cared about the huge financial decision I was making, and made sure I was equipped with all the information I needed to make that decision. She was "in our corner" during the negotiation process, and was quick to answer the many questions I had along the way. My family is now in our dream home, and I don't know if that would have been possible without Linda by our side."
    "Linda was so wonderful from start to finish! She helped me and my husband find our forever home and sell my old one. She is quick, precise, professional, and compassionate about what she does. She is a master of her skills, and extremely dedicated to the task at hand while juggling many other clients. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a new home, or trying to sell an old one. I could not have faced this huge life change and process without her! I will miss her as a business professional, but mostly as a friend. Thank you Linda!!"
    "Linda is the most personable, motivated and caring business woman and partner I have ever met. We had a snag in our process and she defended us and represented us as if we were family. I could not imagine having to go through this process without her!!"
    "Linda was very supportive and responded immediately to our concerns during the strenuous purchasing procedure. She is very professional , knowledgeable and friendly; closing was within a month."
    "Linda was fabulous to work with! We bought a house outside of the state we were in and she made the whole process feel as if we were right there with her. She went above and beyond to make sure we got exactly what we were looking and asking for. Making herself available at any time of day and any day of the week for any questions or concerns I had as a first time home buyer was very helpful. Great "get it done" attitude but very respectful with lots of southern charm. Wonderful lady and excellent realtor."
    "For a first time home buyer she made the process easily and simple and was always there to answer any questions we had. would highly recommend her to anyone in the search for a new home!."
    "My husband and I have had an amazing experience in selling his first home and finding our first home together. In March we started seriously looking to purchase a home for the first time together. There was one house I wanted to see, but other real estate agents kept telling me it was under contract. I remember Linda calling me out of nowhere. She told me that it didn't matter that it was under contract that anything could happen and got our family in to look at the house. Sure enough the contract fell through. Once we actually went to see the home we realized it wasn't for us, but that Linda was. I knew then that she was a fighter and the type of real estate professional I wanted. With 40 years of experience Linda really knows her stuff. For all of our meetings Linda came prepared with all the information we needed and more. In selling my husband's home she had price comparisons on other houses that sold in the area to help us get the best value for his home. Our house was only on the market for a couple of days and with several offers we went with what we think was the best deal. Closing was within a few weeks and everything went smoothly. She has also helped us find our future home. You can tell that Linda does this because she really loves it. She was very professional, but treated us like family. I would recommend Linda to anyone and everyone. DON'T SLEEP ON LINDA!" Kristine Pakkala
    "Linda is a fantastic agent to deal with. Great communication and very knowledgeable. She was recommended to us by neighbors after she sold their home and we will definitely recommend her." brucemacdesign

    We could not have found a better Realtor! Linda went above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best it could possibly be! She made sure we felt comfortable through the hole process explaining every detail of every paper, email, text message, or phone call we received. Us being first time home buyers and obviously nervous it was a breeze with her by our sides. We felt so confident and at peace! My husband and I aren't the most tech savvy people yet Linda made sure to work with us driving to us, meeting places, and helping out everyway she could! on top of it all anytime I ever had a question she was right there no matter the time of day or night or how busy! We have learned so much through this little journey of ours and HIGHLY recommend you take Linda along on yours!"
    "Linda was great in walking us through the process to buy our first home and advocating for us with the different parties. Everything went smoothly and we could not be happier!"
    "Linda Maples is amazing! She helped me with everything I needed and wanted! I am very lucky to have had her help through the whole process of selling my home and buying a new one! Thank you Linda!"
    "A truly remarkable experience with Ms. Maples. She guided us every step of the way and left nothing to chance. She sold our previous home and went through the purchasing process with our new home. Ms. Maples truly does everything in her power to meet her clients best interests. I would fully recommend her to anyone needing a realtor. Top quality." iagobahr
    "Linda undoubtedly is the best agent in the world! We never had to worry about anything from start to finish. She handled our account with such passion. She should be the trainer for all your agents! They would learn from the very best I promise you!"
    "Linda was our agent thru out the entire process of buying my first home. She is AWESOME! She was there ready to help and answer any questions or explain anything we didn't understand. She is very knowledgeable and professional and made this process so easy and effortless. We were so impressed with Linda I would give her the upmost recommendation to anyone and be considered lucky if you get the opportunity to work with her. She is an outstanding agent a one of a kind!"
    "Linda was Amazing! Our daughter's housing plans fell through and we need to find housing for her fast. Linda identified a short list of units that could work for us, arranged for us to see them all the next day, then worked into the early morning to help us finalize our offer on the condo we chose. Linda went back and forth with the seller's agent on counter offers to secure a firm contract by the evening of the same day that we made the offer. As we were from out of town, Linda assisted us in finding an inspector and closing attorney. She personally attended the inspection and then went back to the unit 3 time to make sure that the deficient items that were identified were corrected. Due to her professionalism and perseverance, we closed on the condo 2 weeks to the day from when our offer was accepted. Linda still wasn't finished - She arranged for the locks to be changed to insure our daughters safety then, when our daughter had issues getting internet connected (after the closing and after her job was technically completed), Linda coordinated with both the internet company and the homeowners association to expedite HOA approval for the internet company to install a new line (once again in the same day the problem arose). Choose Linda, you'll be so glad you did! Mark & Laura"
    "She knows the inside and outside of real estate through every phase. Linda has gone above and beyond what was necessary. I expect to be doing other real estate transactions in the area in the future and you can be sure I will call on Linda! Victoria Pence RN"
    "We purchased a new construction home and encountered several hurdles along the way. Linda was on top of every issue as soon as they surfaced. She went over and above her duties!"
    "Linda was an absolute blessing to our family. She was with us every step of the way in our home buying process and went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. As a first time home buyer, I had so many questions and she never once hesitated to immediately answer every single one. Linda was incredibly professional and her knowledge and experience was evident in dealing with more than a few hiccups in the process :) We are so so grateful to have gone through this journey with Linda and would recommend her to anyone looking for a wonderful experience."
    "Kinda knocked the ball out of the park with her services. She is a go-getter and professional in every way. She had all the answers to every question that I had and never once failed to answer the phone, text message or email. She provided the greatest of opinion, she genuinely seemed more concerned with my satisfaction than just selling a home. If you are buying or selling a hole, you will not go wrong with Linda Maples. She will forever be my first choice if there are other real estate needs. Words cannot really express my gratitude to Linda."
    "Within a few days of contacting Linda, she had found me the perfect home. She was a joy to work with and very knowledgable. Wouldn't trust anyone else."
    Linda was such a pleasure to work with. I was out of state and unable to do many things being across the country, but with her Facetime walk throughs, and her super fast responsiveness and knowledge of not only real estate, but of the local area, she really reduced the amount of anxiety I was having over a home purchase. She definitely fought for me as I was not able to be there. Very professional!" astephens33
    Linda is one of a kind. She assisted us every step of the way. Her response was immediate no matter what the question. We felt very secure throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property."
    "Knowledgeable and helped us through the whole selling process, Thank you Linda.............. Worried with covid-19, but she got the job done and we are very appreciative" mikedean4112
    "We were so impressed with the way Linda helped us navigate thru the house selling and the house buying process. She was extremely knowledgeable and made sure that we were kept informed. We were comfortable in knowing that she had our best interest in mind and was taking care of us! We would definitely recommend Linda to anyone who is thinking about selling or buying a home."
    She is amazing to work with. She Pays attention to what you like and are looking for. Will help you see the good and the bad and is very trustworthy. I loved my experience with Mrs.Linda as my Realtor."
    "Linda, did an exceptional job in assisting my family with finding a home. Her ability to be dependable and reliable was very useful in our search for a home. We came to her with a short deadline and she was able to meet it and was very prompt. She is also very knowledgeable with the area. Linda is an amazing individual and I would work with her again in a heart beat." nancy T
    "Linda Maples was the best real estate agent I ever worked with. She is so knowledgeable and you can see how much she loves her job by the hard work she done fo us and by taking care of all our concerns. If you are looking for a real estate agent who is honest and who will fight for you then Linda Maples is the real estate agent you want to hire."
    "Linda was very patient with our house search, which spanned over a year of cautious searching across several counties. Linda consistently kept constant communication with us from start to finish from our initial searches over a year ago to the closing process on the house we eventually selected. She made the process much easier by being alert to deadlines and issues we would need to overcome during the process, especially with covid-19 issues."
    "Informed, accurate, knowledgeable, and thorough. What more could you ask for in someone who will represent you, and help you to sell your home. If I had to do it again Id use Linda Maples as my agent. Shes terrific!" endodoc2
    "Linda Maples is an excellent real estate agent. She is always responsive and on top of the paperwork and timelines needed to buy or sell a home. She is very good at her job and is excellent at keeping everyone on time and on task, especially the other parties one has to work with in the homebuying process. She is also exactly the person you need on your side when things do not go according to the plan. In our case, we faced every unnecessary hurdle and obstacle in our home purchase experience, but Linda was always extremely helpful and timely in her handling of business. When a plan was not successful she would immediately work to resolve the matter and develop a backup plan in the minimum time possible."
    "I can not put in words how absolutely amazing Linda is. Her knowledge and experience of purchasing land made it pleasant for my husband and I. I don't look at Linda as just my realtor, Linda have become my friend. Thank you for making my experience amazing."
    "As expected, there were lots of hurdles and difficulties with our first home purchase. Without Linda we would have given up our search, at least this time around. She went above and beyond any expectations that we had for a realtor. I would recommend her for any real estate transactions that might come up in your future."
    "We ran in to a few snags with our purchase process and Linda was a great help in guiding us through everything. She is very knowledgeable, responsive, and focused."
    "Linda was assigned to us by our relocation company. We had no idea how lucky we were to get her. She is one of the most professional agents we have ever worked with (11 in 10 years). We have never had a realtor fight our cause more than she did. She made call after call inquiring about homes for us (buying during the pandemic selling rush was insane!). After touring a dozen properties together we had to return home, she knew what we liked and called a few days later with the perfect home. We would not have trusted other agents from our past in this manner. Linda is the most driven professional we have ever worked with. We appreciated her so much, she made the process easy, understood our needs and assisted with final details of a new construction while we were 500 miles away. HIGHLY RECOMMEND"
    "Linda Maples is the BEST!!! She's very thorough. When we asked her question and she doesn't know the answer, she will do her best to find out right on the spot without having to wait for the next day. She is very professional and we don't have to prompt her to do something. She was ahead of the game. If you're looking for realtor, don't look any further. You will nor regret working with Linda. We trusted her and she delivered."
    Would highly recommend. Very knowledgeable in the process and the Athens area. Communication is unparalleled and great to work with. She also help me 3 years ago to but a condo for my daughter to use while is college."
    "Linda was extremely helpful throughout our home purchase. beginning with the offer recommendation, inspections, to closing. Linda was extremely helpful when it it came to financing and meeting the time lines to close. Linda didn't miss a beat throughout the whole process so that we closed on time even after complications arose. There is no doubt if you are looking for your next home and someone to make sure you close on time with all the "T's" crossed, Linda is the realtor your looking for."
    "We meet Linda from looking at a lot to purchase, but didn't have her as our real estate agent until my wife said "I wish she was our realtor". Few days past and we ended up getting her as our realtor. I can say she is amazing at her job! She made the house hunt so easy for us, and less painful then it could of been. We love the house purchased and couldn't done it better without you linda! If you need a realtor, I would suggest getting Linda Maples. Thanks Linda!"
    "Linda was everything I could hope for. She kept me up date on all activity while the house was listed. She was very detailed with the process once the house was under contract. I highly recommend Linda her years of experience anticipated my concerns and put them all to rest very quickly."
    "Linda is the best! She knows a lot about buying & selling homes. Linda promised us that we would find and close on a house before our old house sold; she really held up her end! If you’re looking for the best person to help you navigate through the stresses of buying/selling your home Linda is the perfect person to do so!!! Thank you Linda for all you have done for me and my family."
    "I cannot speak highly enough about Linda! She helped us with both the sale of our home and the purchasing of our new home. She got us a premium on the sale (25k over asking price in cash)! She then helped us navigate purchasing new construction. She was so attentive to our needs throughout this process and really went up to bat with the builder to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. We are so happy with the whole process and know it wouldn’t have been so smooth if it weren’t for Linda. I would definitely recommend her for any of your real estate needs!" zuser20140414122650550
    When looking for an exceptional realtor look no further! Her years of experience is proven by her professionalism, integrity, no-nonsense, wonderful sence of humor, I could go on and on. Linda dotted every I and crossed every T. If you didn't think about it she was already on it. You never get the feel like she's just doing this for commission. She genuinely has your best interest at heart. Never taught we'll find a realtor that feels like family. We were blessed to have Linda Maples as our realtor and would gladly recommend her for her efficient service!
    Zillow matched us with Linda to see a house that we were interested in. We didn’t know anything going in and that house did not work out. However, we are incredibly grateful because from that experience we got to meet Linda. She was was on the ball, patient, and very honest about the process and what we should expect. Following our meeting, she found new prospects including the home we ended up purchasing. She was there holding our hands throughout the entire process, and at every step her expertise was apparent. She anticipated any possible hiccups, warned us, and gave us all the possible outcomes so we were never surprised. She attended the inspection and even called a pest inspector out last minute when our hired inspector failed to get his guy out on time. Following the inspection, she confirmed that all requested repairs were completed and when she found that they had not been, she pushed to get them done correctly. We would not have noticed this oversight until it was too late, but thanks to Linda’s attention to detail, everything was done correctly. Throughout the process, she provided excellent referrals for everything we needed and recommended an incredible mortgage lender. If we needed any advice or help, she was always ready and willing. It was truly a wonderful experience working with her and during a stressful time it was incredibly comforting to know that she was on our side making sure that everything was going according to plan. If you need someone knowledge, honest, and extremely reliable, Linda is the one.
    First let me start with this, Linda is an outstanding person who has gone way above the line for us, I've had various agents throughout this process and none of them compare to Linda. She answered our every call, text and email. The homes we found as while as the ones she found she was never unavailable, we toured them all. She's very knowledgeable in what she does. With her help my husband and I found the perfect home, the three of us was there together at the closing and after the closing she's still helping us. She has become more than our realtor she has become a great friend. My husband and I are grateful to have had the pleasure of working with Linda"

    "We were referred to Linda after a very unsuccessful experience with another realtor. With the very first call, Linda was on it! I cannot express the level of care and professionalism she gave with every single interaction. Throughout the entire process, she kept us well informed of all matters and any potential issues or details. No stoned was left unturned, she thought of everything. She listened to both of our wants and needs to help us find the perfect home. I would highly recommend Linda to anyone who needs a great realtor!
