When my wife and I started looking at real estate in the ORC Community it was very daunting. A friend of ours sent Linda’s monthly email to us. Once we engaged with Linda to show us some properties that fit our budget we had a very good experience and felt that she was listening to what we wanted. Initially we could not make up our mind on a property. But Linda stayed in touch and continued to provide us with up-to-date reports on the real estate market and properties that fit our budget. Her consistent attention and ongoing commitment to help us find what we wanted, resulted in our decision to purchase a property at Ocean Reef. Linda helped us through the purchase process and continued to check in with us post close. Very happy with our experience and would recommend anyone interested in pursuing a property at Ocean Reef consider using Linda as their realtor.
We have worked with Linda on several buy and sells at Ocean Reef over the last 15 years- she has been our only realtor! She has always been honest about pricing, thorough in comparisons, a nd ready to meet whenever we needed. Her attitude is always positive. She has always made the deal close! We couldn’t be happier!

During our preliminary search for a property at Ocean Reef Club, we met Linda at an Open House. We explained that we were Legacy Members and were just familiarizing ourselves with the different properties. She did not pressure us at all but listened to our needs and “wish list” and recommended suitable options and kept us informed of current listings and sales. When we were ready to purchase she found our ideal property and was able to assist us in closing the sale from Canada. It was a pleasure working with Linda and we would highly recommend her!

My husband and I spent two years looking at properties at Ocean Reef with Linda. Being property virgins, we were in no rush. She was very patient and never once pressured us. She kept us updated as inventory changed. When we finally bought our home, everything was handled in a professional manner and we had no second thoughts about buying. All went smoothly and we love our home. I have recommended her to all my friends and they feel the same. We would never use anyone else.
Linda and Steven Kaplan
We have worked with Linda on two properties during the past years. She has listened to our needs. She knows the Ocean Reef market and is able to give us honest advice about the available properties. We are working with her again to sell our current property. She has always made the whole process - from listing to closing - easy for us.

Thank you for all of your help in selling our condo at Ocean Reef. Linda was incredibly helpful in selling our condominium at Ocean Reef. She is energetic and did a great job of staging our condo to show it to best effect. Linda is a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend her services.

Linda was instrumental in obtaining a contract on a property for me that was acceptable to the seller. I would recommend her very highly for the sale of any high priced real estate. Linda was extremely diligent in marketing the property and communicated well.
I want to thank you for your knowledge and professionalism when working with my wife and I through the purchase of property in Ocean Reef. You made the process easier than expected and we have enjoyed ourselves from the very first moment we arrived. Thanks again for your services.
We would like to commend our realtor Linda Jaikins for her outstanding commitment in listing and selling our home at Ocean Reef.
Since we are not full time residents at Ocean Reef, Linda worked diligently to be sure our house was ready to be viewed inside and out. Linda always went the extra mile to be sure everything was appealing to the potential buyer. We also greatly appreciate Linda’s frequent communication with us.
Linda’s knowledge of the Ocean Reef Community is a great asset as is her dedication and professionalism as a realtor. She is a pleasure to sort with. We enthusiastically recommend Linda Jaikins to any home seller or buyer.
We had a seamless experience after listing our Cay Harbor guest house with Linda. From the Initial listing to the final contract, she took care of every detail, and even added a few flourishes of her own. She worked hard the old-fashioned way and is a true professional.
Linda is a true professional. She’s patient and listens to her clients. Over a period of time, she found us the perfect condo. She’s incredibly knowledgeable about Ocean Reef and the neighborhoods. And, she goes above and beyond - not only did she find us a great condo, she walked us through all the details of closing, becoming an equity member through to utility services and more. We would use her again in a heartbeat!!
Sandy and John Klein
Linda spent a great deal of time showing various properties to us. She was flexible in her scheduling and very knowledgeable about the properties. What I liked most is how she listened as we walked through properties to learn our preferences. She was then able to select properties that fit the needs and desires of our family. I specifically recall her saying, "I can show you that house which is more expensive than this one, but you won't like it." And she was right! Linda's strength is how she understands the personal needs and wants of her clients.
Anita and James Major
Linda made the process of buying our first home at Ocean Reef so easy. I never dreamed what it entailed from applying to become an Equity Member to getting the Utilities switched. Linda walked me through the entire process and made sure that I did the right thing. She is the most detailed person that I have ever met. You couldn’t go wrong using Linda and I highly recommend her.
We recently purchased a Cottage at The Anglers Club through Linda Jaikins and Swenson and Ecuyer. Linda was responsive, efficient and compassionate while always keeping our best interest at heart. With Linda’s assistance, the transaction went smooth as silk.
Thank you Linda!

Linda did an amazing job helping us find our new condo! While we have been at Ocean Reef for a couple years, we never really looked at many of the different Communities. She was incredibly patient as we sort of started from scratch and drove around for days. We then closed in the midst of the Covid crisis and she had to do everything, from the walk through to closing remotely with us. She has gotten our original contract ready for listing all on her own. Truly the above and beyond effort for which we will be forever grateful.

Linda Jaikins found and Brokered our Card Sound home in a transaction that closed in the last 30 days. Although the contract was signed and the closing occurred very quickly this was by no means an easy deal. Linda was an outstanding advocate for our side of the transaction and worked tirelessly on inspections, arguments, and ultimately an acceptable closing.
I found Linda to be not only a great advocate, but also a warm and understanding individual who was tireless in her pursuit of getting the job done and keeping both my wife and I pretty much in line despite a major amount of stress and angst over the obstacles being thrown at us.
I should mention that I am a seasoned real estate professional as an owner of an office building portfolio in Chicago who has seen a fair share of difficult real estate deals. It is just a different animal when dealing with something personal as opposed to the business of another transaction.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Linda Jaikins and her very supportive firm, Swenson&Ecuyer Reality, for any and all residential Ocean Reef transactions.
To whom it may concern:
My wife and I have owned two condominiums in the Ocean Reef Club and decided that we desired a three bedroom condominium with boat slip privileges and ideally a condominium with an assigned boat slip. After much time and visits to most condominium complexes inside the Ocean Reef Club, Linda identified our ideal new home at 39 Harbour House.
Our respect and applause for Linda Jaikins starts with her perseverance in showing us so many properties and her desire to understand all of our needs in order to deliver on the assignment. All the while Linda remained cheerful, confident and endlessly helpful.
One more important point. We worked with Linda through the extremely tricky Covid-19 period. This period presented many challenges including the sensitivities of visiting other people’s properties.
We commend Linda also for her sense of urgency in marketing our newly listed Angelfish Cay condominium. The day we signed the listing papers, several of our ORC friends told us they just saw Linda’s email promoting our new listing. Linda is on it!
With many thanks,
Rudy and Susan Schupp
