Linda Niehuus
REALTOR® Associate
Linda Niehuus has been involved in real estate, in some form or fashion, since 1973, during which time she worked as a sales associate in the Memorial area of Houston. When her husband was transferred to the United Arab Emirates in 1978, she put her agent skills on ‘hold,’ but continued to own and manage rental property. When another assignment took Linda and her husband to New Orleans for three years and then to Paris for another 18 months, she couldn’t wait to return home to Texas. “I’ve always considered myself a Texan, so I had to get back here as quickly as I could!” A long-time resident of Austin County, Linda specializes in country homes, farms, ranches and equestrian facilities. She serves both buyers and sellers in a four-county area that include Brenham, Bellville, Fayetteville, New Ulm, and the surrounding areas. “Real estate is what I know and love,” she says. “It’s often the most important investment a person makes and can become a wealth-builder, as well as a style of living.” In choosing someone to represent you—whether buying or selling—experience is important. Linda has consistently been a top producer since 2011 and routinely closes more sales than any other agent in the company—which translates to more experience working for you. Linda’s expertise and professionalism was recognized in 2012 when she was named the REALTOR® of the Year – a prestigious award given to only one REALTOR® in the South Central Board of Realtors. Her dedication to continuing professional development includes receiving these designations: GRI® (Graduate Realtor® Institute) joining other top industry producers in residential real estate who have made the commitment to deliver a superior level of professional service; Certified Home Marketing Specialist (CHMS®), further refining her marketing skills to benefit Sellers; Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) which positions her to work as an exclusive Buyer Agent. Recognizing her professionalism and leadership potential, she is also a graduate of the elite Texas Realtors Leadership Program, a seven-month intensive program that focuses on community issues and leadership skills. It’s no surprise that Linda’s diverse background and international experiences have proven advantageous to her career. “Everything I have ever done professionally has involved working with people, often from vastly different backgrounds, to help them define and meet their needs.” A few adversities along the way have proved useful, as well. “Being a professional woman in a Muslim/Arab country presented many challenges,” says Linda, “and moving from Paris, France to Nelsonville, Texas was quite a culture shock,” says Linda. “We had to learn about ranching and raising animals. It was a real learning curve for several years, so I understand others who are in similar situations.” Linda and her family owned and operated a 76 acre cow/calf and horse ranch named “HayWire Ranch” for 19 years, in addition to owning and managing investment properties in Houston, Austin and Bellville. When she’s not working, Linda enjoys riding horses, scuba diving, sailing, and reading. She has three grown children.

Her experience, knowledge of the market and area really helped us find the home that was perfect for our family. She listened to our needs and found many properties for us to look at that met our requirements. It was a pleasure to work with Linda and I would highly recommend her to represent you whether you are selling or buying.” – Rick Roach, Buyer Client

“When looking for a new home for my in-laws Linda Niehuus stepped up to the challenges they presented with their very specific needs. She always spent as much time as they needed to feel comfortable and in the end was very successful in locating the perfect place for them. Linda is always professional, extremely helpful and very knowledgeable in executing her responsibilities to her clients. I would highly recommend her.” Susan Blanchard, Daughter-in-Law of Buyer Client

Honestly the best realtor you could ever find! She helped us every step of the way, even with things that aren't technically in her job description. She is extremely knowledgeable in FHA loans, as well as many other options. We went through 3 realtors before we found Linda, and I thank God that we did! I even felt sorry for the person we bought the home from, because their Realtor was nowhere near as helpful or nice as Linda. I would most definitely recommend Linda to anyone I know who is looking for property! – Jodee Leal, Buyer Client
