Meet Linda Larson-Porter, Sales Manager and REALTOR® for Castle Hills Real Estate. As a 20 year resident of North Dallas and living 9 years in Castle Hills, Linda is committed to her community as well as her clients!
Her background in sales is extensive! She began her career with various retail positions as a teenager, and then eventually became part-owner of a women’s clothing store by the time she was just 25! In her early 30’s she moved into Business to Business sales by becoming a manufacturer’s representative for a successful automotive parts Rep Group, CSD Sales in Wisconsin. This lead to a larger role in a Manufacturer’s Rep Group out of Dallas called Boykin & Red Associates which sold commercial restaurant equipment Nationwide. In 2001, Linda was hired as a direct sales representative for Virco Manufacturing, a leading contract furniture company specializing in educational furniture. For the next 13 years she played a valuable role in the company’s success. First as a sales representative in the state of Texas, then, after just 4 years with the company, she was promoted to National Accounts Manager in Corporate sales, calling on National Wholesalers, Internet Dealers and National Catalog houses. The following year she was promoted again, this time to the highly sought after position of Regional Manager. In this capacity, she was responsible for the sales of 9 salespersons in 7 states throughout the South Central Region of the US. After quickly bringing her region to #1 in the company, she maintained this ranking for 6 ½ years, before moving into a brand new “startup” division within the company calling on Federal Government accounts.
In 2014 her husband, and longtime Real Estate professional, Mark Porter encouraged her to complete her Real Estate education and become a full time REALTOR®. By 2015, she became Sales Manager and partner at Castle Hills Real Estate.
