About Us

The Straight Team's legacy began over 40 years ago when Linda Straight, driven by a passion for real estate and a commitment to excellence, embarked on her journey in the Tampa Bay housing market. As her reputation grew, so did the team. In 2002, Dennis Straight, with his vast experience and keen market insights, joined Linda in her endeavors. The duo then aligned with Keller Williams in 2004, marking a new era of growth and service excellence. The team's dynamics took another leap in 2010 when their son, Ryan, brought his fresh perspective and modern insights to the table. Throughout its evolution, The Straight Team has maintained its core values of dedication, knowledge, and unparalleled service, solidifying its position as one of Tampa Bay's most trusted real estate teams.

Linda Straight

From the early days of her career, Linda Straight showcased an unwavering dedication to her clients and the real estate industry. With over 40 years of experience, Linda has been instrumental in helping thousands of individuals and families navigate the complexities of homeownership.

In 2004, she embarked on a new chapter by joining Keller Williams alongside her husband, Dennis. Their combined energy and expertise quickly made waves in the Tampa Bay real estate community. Her leadership qualities didn't go unnoticed, and in 2006, she stepped into the pivotal role of office team leader.

But Linda's passion didn't stop with real estate. Recognizing a need to empower and educate other professionals, she founded "Straight 2 Success" in 2013, a business coaching platform that has since become a beacon for individuals across various industries. Today, as a certified member of the Maxwell Leadership team, Linda's influence stretches far beyond real estate, touching businesses of all kinds and guiding them towards success.


With a keen eye for opportunity and a natural knack for understanding clients' needs, Dennis Straight has been an integral part of the Tampa Bay real estate scene since 1985. His initial tenure as a floor duty agent at Century 21 gave him an invaluable perspective on the industry's dynamics.

Although he began his journey independently, the pull of partnership and collaboration led him to join forces full-time with Linda in 2002. This decision would prove to be transformative. Their combined strengths culminated in joining Keller Williams in 2004, where Dennis soon took over as the lead sales agent, managing accounts and ensuring client satisfaction at every turn.

Dennis's vast experience, combined with his deep understanding of Tampa Bay's real estate market, positions him as an unmatched asset to both clients and the team.


Growing up amidst the bustling world of real estate, it was almost inevitable that Ryan Straight would follow in his parents' footsteps. Immersed in the industry's nuances from a young age, Ryan brought a fresh perspective when he officially joined The Straight Team in 2010.

Initially focusing on buyers, Ryan quickly showcased his ability to understand clients' desires and find properties that matched their dreams. Over the past 13 years, his role has expanded. Now, as a full-time agent handling both buyers and sellers, Ryan's dedication, modern insights, and extensive knowledge of the Tampa Bay area have led him to facilitate hundreds of successful home sales.

Ryan's youthful energy, combined with the foundational principles instilled by his parents, ensures that every client receives a seamless, personalized experience.




To build careers worth having, businesses worth owning, and lives worth living.

To be the real estate team of choice for agents and their customers.

God, family, then business.
