Lina Mercer Real Estate Group

Why “Lina Mercer Real Estate Group”?

When I came home to Hampton Roads after years in New York, I looked at the successful Real Estate firms in the area.  I interviewed with several and just wasn’t able to find a place that I felt was a good fit.  I looked at what was important to me, considered how I wanted to work and how I wanted to be recognized in the Real Estate field and came up with three things that seem to be the driving difference between Real Estate in Hampton Roads and what I wanted to do.  So with those thoughts in mind, I decided to open the Lina Mercer Real Estate Group in 2011.

As the owner of the company and the broker, I am free to ensure that the values of the company reflect my personal values.  And I am in the position to ensure that agents who work for me share my core values and goals.

At Lina Mercer Real Estate Group, we value Honesty in all things.  As the broker, I will always be honest with you – even if I have to tell you things you don’t want to hear and my agents will do the same.  And we expect our clients, sellers and buyers, to be truthful and forthright – to be honest – with us.  That degree of open and frank information exchange will always lead to the most satisfied of customers because there will be no surprises.  Everything will be on the table from the beginning.

We value Loyalty.  We’ll be there for you every step of the way, not just until you sign on the dotted line.  If you need us after the fact, you have our commitment that we will do whatever we can to help you.  Our agents are loyal to our business.  We all support one another and that lets us provide you with a network of experienced people who can work together to resolve any issue and assist where we are needed in any way we can.  We hope our loyalty will, in turn, make you loyal to us.  We’re not just looking for one sale.  We want to be your Realtor for life.  Once you’ve bought that first home and we’ve gotten through that process with you, we want you to come back in 3 or 5 or 7 or even 10 years and let us help you find your next home.

We value Respect.  At Lina Mercer Real Estate Group, we’re as eager and excited to help the person with $80,000 for a home as we are the person with $800,000.  We’ll never be the kind of agency that turns someone away because they don’t represent a big enough “cut.”  Buying a home is an exciting and positive decision, but it can be stressful, hard work, and take a frustratingly long time.  Our job is to ease you through the paperwork, take as much of the stress off you as possible and move the process along as quickly as we can.


Our Mission Statement sums it up.

For every single customer, we will work as hard as we can to help them achieve their dreams.  We love to help our clients find a house that can become a happy home.

We will not bend the truth to make a sale.  We believe that working hard at something you love to do, with people you respect and trust, is one of the greatest experiences in life.  We are grateful and inspired to be working with a select team of professionals whom we believe are the most capable, honest and hard-working in the area.  We are devoted to our family, our colleagues, our community, and our country.  Finally, we believe that our business can be successful for generations only if we continue to value Honesty, Loyalty, and Respect.
