Born in Ohio, Linda moved with her family to Arizona in 1956. She attended Scottsdale High School and later graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Secondary Education. After teaching and raising a family, Linda realized she was more suited for the business world. She acquired a real estate license and sold real estate in Scottsdale, Arizona. That position created a path for her thirty-five year career in mortgage lending working in many capacities and eventually opening her own business, Hacienda Lending, Inc.
In her personal life, she has been married to Tom Lulkovich for over thirty-five years. Linda and Tom live at Encanterra Country Club in San Tan Valley during the winter months where they enjoy an active lifestyle. They have four children and ten grandchildren. Having spent fifty plus years of hot summers in the valley, Tom and Linda acquired a second home last fall in the Village and plan to spend six to seven months in the pines. They call this home their “Lean To”.
Linda believes in giving back to her profession and community. She has proudly served the Arizona Association of Mortgage Professionals in many capacities over the past twenty years and was named “Arizona Mortgage Professional of the Year” in 2000. She has also been involved in Rotary International where she and Tom volunteered in many activities, service and leadership. Linda was recognized with the Rotary District “Service Above Self” award in 2007.
Tom and Linda enjoy all sorts of cards, games, dancing and especially wine tasting. They are anxious to establish their roots in the Village community. Building new friendships and having good times is what they look forward in this new chapter of their lives.
