In 1973, Linda Anderson built the first building in what became the "Langley Village." According to her son, Steve O'Sullivan, Linda moved her South Island Realty business there, and his father, Cornelius ("Con") O'Sullivan, worked as a broker in that office.

In 1982, Linda remained with South Island Realty when Con opened "O'Sullivan Real Estate" next door.

With Linda still at the helm, it later became the Langley office of Coldwell Banker Tara Properties. Harlan J. Mason, CPA also had an office in rear of the building (Suite 16C) for a time.
