About Linda

Linda was born in Washington, N.C., and moved to Carteret County in 1965. She earned a master’s degree in education with an emphasis in counseling from East Carolina University and then returned to the Crystal Coast to embark on a Real Estate career. Today, she is the owner & lead broker of Linda Rike Real Estate.

Over the years, Linda Rike has reached a conclusion. She loves being near the water, any type of water. It’s something about the smell of the salt air. Or perhaps it’s the sound of the waves crashing on the shoreline, or a baited line and hook breaking a glassy surface at daybreak.

Water is critical in so many aspects of life: gardening, cooking, and bringing to fruition everything from flowers to sandcastles. So, it’s no surprise that adding a little water to your lifestyle can have an uplifting affect on your life! That’s one of the many reasons we at Linda Rike Real Estate choose to call the Crystal Coast home. We appreciate the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean and the many scenic waterways that ribbon the Crystal Coast. It’s the perfect place to satisfy the desire to dip your toes, relax, and catch a gorgeous sunset.
