Dawn originally graduated from Brigham Young University in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, and worked for several years in the ICU and ER at Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena. She now pursues her passion for helping people through a blend of traditional and innovative real estate transactions. She has four young adult children and shares a wonderful life with her partner in Temple City.
“Both my mother and I have always wanted to pursue real estate, but it wasn’t until a ‘mid-life crisis’ jarred me into a new career path that we left our nursing careers and joined forces to pursue our dream of working and serving in the real estate world. We are both very different, which is great, because we complement each other very nicely. I love the dance between property and paper.” Linda Hacker is gifted in working with the special needs of seniors (both mother and daughter are licensed RNs). Although they are focused on seller financing and real estate notes, Linda does a small amount of traditional real estate business for friends and family. She is a Certified Staging Consultant and has a tendency to roll up her sleeves and work right beside her clients every step of the way. Linda has lived in Alhambra, California for several decades, and is heavily involved with charitable work in the community through her religious organization. She loves spending time in her garden, and planning camping trips with her 4 grown children and 12 grandchildren.

Owner Financing gets you top dollar for your property, we'll get you top dollar for you paper!
Where Tradition Meets Innovation . . .
This is the place to come for a sense of hope and possibility. When banks say NO, I say YES! When you think you’re out of options, let me open your mind to concepts and strategies you’ve probably never even heard of. You’re not at the mercy of the market . . . I want to liberate and empower you to get what you most want and need, regardless of what’s going on ‘out there.’
We are passionate about: Ethical creative financing: Creative financing is here to stay. Let’s use it legally, ethically and intelligently for the benefit of all concerned. Closing real estate transactions without bank financing! You don’t have to wait on an answer from the bank to get what you want. You can get your property in escrow by advertising: Owner Will Carry. Setting weary landlords free: learn how you can DO LESS and GET MORE by becoming the bank on your own property. Empowering the FSBO: discover little known strategies that give you the BOFS (Best Opportunity For Success). Helping real estate professionals succeed: what you don’t know about notes and seller financing is costing you listings, sales and closed escrows, and setting you up for trouble. Agents are increasingly being asked to participate in seller financing transactions, yet few have the expertise to navigate it competently. Don’t let your client come back to you angry when they have to take a massive discount on the sale of their note because you didn’t know how to set things up for maximum safety and asset preservation. Helping CPAs and Attorneys provide excellent service: the Installment Sale, Deferred Sales Trust and Title Holding Trust can each powerfully preserve your clients’ wealth and create cash flow, but the transactions must be engineered intelligently. You can save your clients moneyby requesting a Professional Note Appraisal on any notes currently held in portfolio. Getting instant cash to note holders: when you need money now, you want to be able to sell your note for minimum discount, and you don’t have to sell the whole note! What do you really need?
We are dedicated to liberating & empowering sellers, buyers and real estate professionals in today’s market.
