Linda Humphrey moved to Nevada in 1990 to join Associated Anesthesiologists of Reno as a private practice anesthesiologist. She became a Realtor® in 2007, and broker of her own company, Humphrey Home Connections Realty, in September of 2010. Over the next several years, she transitioned from medical practice into full time real estate sales and management.
Growing a brokerage during the height of the real estate crisis proved to be a challenging yet rewarding endeavor, with almost daily “learning opportunities”. Linda likes to say she felt like a salmon swimming upstream as those with better sense left the profession in droves.
The evolution of her original company into Nevada Home Connections grew out of many philosophical discussions about the direction of real estate and how to improve the experience of real estate sales for all parties: clients, agents, brokers, and ancillary service providers. It became clear that it was time to take the next step: find some like-minded partners, then start from scratch and create an entirely new company and brokerage model from the ground up.
Nevada Home Connections was officially launched in July of 2014 in partnership with Dan and Valarie Rider, and grew quickly to six partners (with Margie McIntyre, Jan Mackenzie, and Claire Kirby) and 13 total licensees. It is one of the fastest growing brokerages in Northern Nevada in sales volume. Linda couldn’t be happier about her new partners and the direction of the new company, and is excited to see where it leads.
An outdoor enthusiast, Linda enjoys all the wonderful activities offered in the Reno and Lake Tahoe area. She is an avid runner and cyclist and an occasional triathlete. She also enjoys sailing, backpacking, photography, and travel.
