Elisa Hanson-Linton’s career began with her time in the United States National Guard, where she served her country as a human resource specialist and was deployed to Iraq. After her deployment, she returned to Iraq to serve as a civilian contractor, leading a team of 18 employees through training and mentoring. “I’ve always enjoyed assisting and helping people,” she shares. “It was a natural transition to real estate so I can help my fellow veterans utilize their military benefits to purchase a home.” To facilitate this goal, she serves as a homebuying liaison for veterans with disabilities and surviving spouses.
Hanson-Linton was recently accepted among her peers to participate in the 13th HAR-facilitated Texas Realtors Leadership Program and is a part of the RMG Collective Platinum 1, a collaborative group of Realtors who have joined together from different brokerages with one goal in mind: building a stronger community. “The current market is pushing me to become more creative to assist buyers in purchasing their piece of the American Dream,” Hanson-Linton says. “I am dedicated to ensuring that we don’t leave anyone behind, especially if they are willing and able.”
Hanson-Linton’s clients say she’s hardworking, compassionate and understanding. “They see me as their trusted advisor,” she insists. In 2020, she was included among the Top 20 of 2020 Real Estate Professionals by the Houston Black Real Estate Association (of which she’s also a member). In 2021 and 2022, she received the Million Dollar Circle Award for record sales in new construction by the Greater Houston Builders Association.
Hanson-Linton’s success is no coincidence. “A good real estate agent doesn’t just sell properties — they sell themselves,” she declares. “It’s very important for me to show my real and true personality. Clients respond better if I have a great attitude, have confidence in my ability … I am genuinely interested in helping them without expecting anything in return.”
