Our Approach

Linda and Kristin started ABODEslc in 2017 with the focus of our clients' best interests in mind.

We are client-centric, knowledgable, and want what's best for our clients to help them build wealth in real estate.  We stay to up to date with the latest market trends, we have a heavy marketing presence, and we focus on service.

Our goal as your agents is to make your next transaction as seamless and stress-free as possible, putting you first, and help you make educated decisions about the real estate market and your individual needs.

Meet the Team


Linda Burtch

Owner, Realtor

Linda has called Salt Lake, specifically Sugarhouse, home since childhood. She has been in real estate since 2008, and her accolades include: Best Small Team at KW Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Board of Realtors Medium Sales Team of 2017 and the Realtor Top 500 Hall of Fame for 2018.

She is a dedicated advocate for her clients, willing to fight for a win-win deal, and an expert in her field.  She has a working knowledge of the real estate market and is familiar with all of the different neighborhoods and values throughout the Wasatch Front. She loves staying on top of the newest trends and educating clients so they can make the best financial decisions when buying or selling their property.

She's a proud mother of two, spends her free time with her husband Kelley and the kids or going rock-climbing, yoga, and spending time outdoors.


Kristin Buta

Owner, Realtor

Kristin moved to Salt Lake in 2003 from Phoenix, Arizona.  She is a second-generation Realtor and grew up in the industry.  She's been in and out of the Real Estate industry since 1993 until she finally became a full-time agent in early 2017.  She won the Keller Williams Cultural Icon Award in 2017 for her dedication to her clients and service to others in the community.

Kristin worked a full time leadership career in corporate America while concurrently pursued a degree in Marketing Management.  She left a long-standing corporate career in healthcare so she can spend her days helping clients find their dream homes and making a positive impact in her community.  She is dedicated, analytical, organized, and loves finding the right home for her clients, whether they are first-time buyers or luxury clients looking to make a change.

When she's not working, she spends her time advocating wellness to older adults, taking photographs, supporting the arts, and spending time with her dog at the park.

Linda and Kristin have been long-time friends and often can be found together; attending real estate classes, attending concerts, community events, volunteering, cooking after a long week, or going to Yoga or Pilates classes.  They are also on the Keller Williams SLC Leadership Council and share the chair for the Events Committee and work together to plan all of the large events for the office.

Rachael Rasmussen

Transaction Coordinator, Realtor

Rachael was born and raised on the Wasatch Front, and calls Salt Lake City home. After exploring the world for several years, she returned to the Salt Lake valley in 2015 to begin her career in real estate. Rachael worked for three years as transaction coordinator for a major Keller Williams team before leaving to support Abode.
With two parents and several siblings in the real estate industry, Rachael comes to her profession naturally, with a deep understanding of client and agent needs and of the inner workings of the home sales and purchasing process.  Through working more than 300 transactions during her career, Rachael developed a passion for creating and refining systems to facilitate a smoother, better transaction experience for both buyer and seller, and improving communications and relationships between realtors and their clients.
When she’s not helping clients, Rachael can often be found knitting in a warm comfortable chair, relaxing around a campfire, or singing along to her favorite bands in local concert venues.
