Professional Business Networking | Redmond Business Showcase

Redmond Business Showcase
The best BS on the Eastside!

Redmond Business Professionals Leadership Team

Redmond Business Showcase (RBS) is a volunteer effort that was formed in February 2012 to provide a networking experience for local business professionals and community minded individuals.  The name of the organization itself speaks to the mission of Redmond Business Showcase.  The event is held monthly in Redmond, Washington.  Our attendees are, for the most part, local business men and women who are seeking to establish and/or broaden a business relationship in the local community.  To help facilitate the networking experience, a local business is “showcased” each month which allows our presenters to provide a more robust presentation of their business and/or service. 

About RBS


The Redmond Business Showcase is not limited to the Redmond community.  We encourage participation from businesses and professionals from the surrounding Eastside communities to network together. The format of our event generally includes a quarterly focus of:

  • Table Switching Networking
  • Member as the Main Presentation
  • Invited Guest Speaker

The real backbone of the event however, is that we encourage each and every attendee to provide a “brief” description of their business, service or outreach program to the entire audience.

All proceeds from the monthly breakfast and the quarterly evening event are given to the host venue. No funds are retained by RBS.

RBS encourages new attendees and is open to any an all who want to attend. 

  • We have no membership, dues or fees. 
  • We do not limit the types of businesses or organizations wishing to attend the morning or evening events.  
  • The “investment” made into Redmond Business Showcase is your time and effort. 
  • Our regular attendees have gained new business as a direct result of contacts made at the Redmond Business Showcase events.

Redmond Business Showcase is more affectionately known as RBS.  Our tag line is:  RBS is the best BS in town!  (that’s Business Showcase!!)

Whether it's finding a first-time home buyer, listing a multi-million dollar property, or negotiating the best possible terms for your purchase and sale, Linda isn't finished until she's exceeded all your expectations and made a lifelong friend.

Her clients are not the only ones who have noticed. The Redmond Reporter named Linda "Best Realtor" for 2014, she earned "Five Star Professional" honors from Seattle Magazine in both 2013 and 2014, and Coldwell Banker awarded her with the "International Sterling Society" distinction in 2012 and 2013.

Her attitude helps her clients bring their own positive energy to their transactions. She not only explains the buying or selling process in detail, she stays in close communication with them, keeping them informed, letting them know that she's always working toward their best interests, and giving them reassurance and faith that together they can and will overcome all challenges. Linda's clients know they can call at any time and she'll be there for them.
