Linda is a Florida original. Born in Orlando, she moved to Englewood with her parents as a young girl. Her parents owned and operated a resort facility on Manasota Key, so she has been around rental properties most of her life. Englewood was a great place to grow up, especially for a young lady who loved the beach and the sunshine and fishing in Lemon Bay.
After graduating high school she attended Manatee Community College in Bradenton and then went on to graduate from Florida Atlantic University on the east coast of Florida. She began a teaching career in the Orlando area where she met her husband David Lipstein, who was working in Orlando at the time.
Not long after they were married, the two of them moved to Englewood and worked full time operating the resort facility her parents had built at The Angler’s Resort. Within a few years they opened their own real estate company, Manasota Key Realty, whcih they have owned and operated since then.
Linda and David have 1 son, Blake Lipstein who is attending State College of Florida in Venice. He plans to continue his studies at USF. Their family has lived in Englewood ever since.
