Linda first established her name in West Los Angeles’ highly competitive real estate market with her own boutique firm, Caverhill and May. Over the next 9 years, she developed the negotiating skills that began her trajectory into luxury real estate sales, breaking sales records with double-digit prices for the last 25 years. She then moved on to create Linda May Properties, establishing a self-branding technique as a part of a real estate agent’s professional image. Never done before, this innovative approach has now become a common trend and a staple among her peers. Today, Linda May Properties allows her to enhance her stature by working as an independent entity under the large corporate umbrella of Hilton & Hyland, a recognized leader in luxury real estate. This translates well for her clients. Each of the unique properties that Linda works with is given individualized marketing strategies not just locally and nationally but globally, as well. With the support of a strong corporate brand, Linda is able to handle all of her clients’ real estate needs, continuously working for their best interests. Customer service is always at the forefront of every choice Linda makes. This is the hallmark of her real estate practice. It is a standard that she and her outstanding team meet every day, which is why the majority of her business continues to be repeat or referral clients.
Her passion for architecture, design,people and art is an integral part of everything she does, including her community involvement. Within her own neighborhood, Linda is on the board of the Wallis Annenberg Cultural Center in Beverly Hills.

Her deep understanding of the city and enthusiasm for its future gives her the unmatched ability to spot social and value trends in Los Angeles’ ever-evolving neighborhoods. Linda has gained insight into the city that comes with witnessing a city like Beverly Hills transform from the charming movie industry town of the 1970's to the explosive international and cultural metropolis it is today. Linda’s connection to the city allows her to participate and be involved in the city’s evolution.Each change Los Angeles undergoes offers Linda an opportunity to see what this vibrant city is capable of.
The city’s landscape is in the midst of a cultural, financial, and lifestyle paradigm shift. With the dawn of tech and it’s growing involvement in the entertainment/media industry, a more sophisticated, informed and accomplished group of individuals has been inspired to live and thrive in Los Angeles.
“They could live in New York and any other city, but L.A. offers a casual atmosphere that stimulates creativity. There is a tremendous sense of freedom and experimentation in Los Angeles,” says Linda.
