HILTON & HYLAND
Linda May has made a name for herself working with A-listers and the world’s most elite business leaders in luxury Los Angeles residential real estate for over three decades.
What has been your ticket to success?
I was immediately drawn to the luxury marketplace over 30-plus years ago. My time in the industry has been defined through my persistent hard work, complete authenticity and integrity. I also have a passion for art and architecture, which has led me to be immersed in the fabulous classic architectural homes that Los Angeles has to offer. Last, but certainly not least, I am backed by an incredible team!
What advice would you give an agent who is just starting out?
Get yourself a mentor, learn the inventory and start to understand values! These are key fundamentals of being a successful agent.
What do you see as the most desirable selling point of a residence that buyers look for in your market?
Today, the most desired selling point of a residence to my clientele is the master suite. It must be sumptuous, boast overgenerous closets, separate his/hers bathrooms and evoke a true feeling of relaxation.
What has been your most significant home sale?
My most recent significant estate sale was the iconic 300 Delfern Drive, The Edie Goetz Estate. Out of the 13-plus estates I have sold in Holmby Hills, this was one of the best residential estates in the city with its classic Hollywood history, stunning architecture and classic elements. It is a rare trophy estate that I was proud to represent.
Are there recurring trends that you’ve seen in the past year?
In the last several years, the modern white box home has been a very strong trend, However, classical architectural homes with pedigree, history and the touch of distinction by masterful architects continue to endure and prevail throughout the decades.
