A popular South Florida Realtor was shot and killed in northeast Miami-Dade on Monday, in a murder-suicide.

Linda Marx, broker and owner of Linda Marx Realty, was killed by her son-in-law Steve Kasimow in front of his home on Northeast 211th Street near North Miami Beach. Kasimow then committed suicide in Hollywood, local police told NBC Miami.

Kasimow was reportedly upset about his divorce and got into an argument with Marx, who was 70.

Marx got her real estate license in Florida in 1980, according to the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Her North Miami Beach-based brokerage has 21 agents.

Over the course of her career, Marx closed deals totaling more than $100 million, according to her company’s website.

Kasimow was also a licensed real estate broker in Florida, state records show. He owned Buy and Sell Now Realty Inc., a brokerage based in Hollywood.
