Welcome Home

A seasoned real estate veteran since 1993, Lina as gained the respect of her clients through her honesty, integrity, expertise and professionalism. Her enthusiasm and standards for the business and this industry are unparalleled.  She listens to her clients needs and works together with them to meet their goals. 

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago offers her and her clients superior service & exposure.   At this stage of the game, that’s what she was looking for, a company going beyond excellence.

One of Lina’s clients gave her high energy & drive a name.  Dubbing it the “2 cups coffee rule”, Dr. Wayne Smith explains before you meet with Lina, you should have two cups of coffee to be on the same energy level with her! 

Lina is a mover and shaker, with more than 50% of her business being past clients & referrals; she always looks toward the future to expand her network.

In 2010, Lina joined forces with her mother, Gudrun Jocis, creating a perfect blend of managerial hands on style, with high energy and a synergy to their clients only a mother/daughter team could bring. They often collaborate on better ways of doing business with their clients. They formed LG|Partners (that’s Lina and Gudrun).  

Lina also believes in giving back and passing it forward. So, it's no wonder that during her spare time she's has been involved with and served on the following boards and committees:

  • Chair of Good Neighbors Award Committee (2008)
  • Illinois Association Technology Committee (2007)
