Linda Purcell entered the real estate profession in 1981 when interest rates were at an all-time high of 18–20%. Through hard work and dedication, she rose to the top of the ranks becoming the #1 agent in Georgia for ERA in 1984 and in the top 25 nationally for ERA in 1985. Linda is extremely excited to have joined the team at Keller Williams Realty Greater Athens in November 2011.
Prior to her move to Keller Williams, Linda joined RE/MAX in March of 1989. That year she was named the New Sales Associate of the Year for RE/MAX of Georgia.

In 1995, she was named to the RE/MAX Hall of Fame – one of just 400 agents that year out of more than 42,000 to achieve RE/MAX’s highest level of accomplishment. In 2002, she received the Silver Phoenix Award for 20 consecutive years in the Athens Area Association of Realtors Circle of Achievement.
