After a period of living in Kansas City, toward the end of the 1980's, Linda Rudd embarked on a journey to find a new lifestyle on the southeast coast. That search both began and culminated on Hilton Head Island. Being raised in the West where sunny days in friendly places abound, the island resounded with an instant appeal for Linda. Her continued 'search' turned into a quest of several months duration. Meandering down the coastline through Georgia, and all along both coasts of Florida, she explored one distinctive community after another – each falling short of Hilton Head's magnetic attraction. That was it! Linda has lived in the Hilton Head area ever since, reveling in a way of life so suited to her. She says, 'This is where I was meant to live!' The Hilton Head Lowcountry is home, but Linda treasures her family and loves to travel, literally all around…and out of the country to visit them. 'I have three brothers and one daughter, Stephanie,' Linda enthusiastically declares. 'They are my confidantes, fashion gurus and life consultants,' she adds with a smile. The importance of family and traditional values has provided a foundation in her life since childhood. In her real estate profession, Linda combines her enthusiasm for sharing the 'wonders of paradise living' and her enjoyment for helping others. With a background in franchise marketing and sales, Linda started her career in real estate more than twenty years ago, and is now a partner with Rick Turner. 'I undeniably love what I do in real estate,' says Linda. 'It's exhilarating to assist people in fulfilling their dreams as they discover the wonderful possibilities our Lowcountry affords them.' She especially likes getting to know her clients and actively listening to and helping them achieve their unique needs and goals. She adds, 'It's not only very fulfilling – it's just plain fun!'
