We faced a daunting task when my elderly parents could no longer care for themselves in their own home. The time came to move them into assisted living in a minimally disruptive fashion, and then figure out how to disposition 60+ years worth of household items in order to put their house up for sale. We spent many sleepless nights worrying while trying to figure out where to begin.
We were fortunate to meet with Lynn who kindly offered her expertise not only in selling my parents home, but she provided us with recommendations on how to make sure my parents transition to assisted living went smoothly. She put us in touch with a wonderful senior moving specialist who was amazing. Rather than rush their house to market she wisely suggested taking care of my parents first, then take some time to recuperate before quickly jumping into the daunting task of preparing their house for sale.
We are extremely grateful for the expertise Lynn provided in selling my parents house. She arranged for an amazing estate sale company to remove the remaining items that we left in the house, and when they were finished the house was very clean and ready for the next phase. It was a comforting feeling to be able to fully trust Lynn to recommend the repair and upgrades the house would require in order to provide a beautiful turnkey house that buyers are looking for. Lynn has a fabulous team of contractors in all trades who seemed to magically appear on the exact days that she needs them. Each one was very professional and completed their jobs on time so that the house was ready for sale on the date promised. Her team patched damage to walls, removed the existing kitchen and the popcorn ceiling, repainted all interior and exterior walls, installed a beautiful new modern kitchen with stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops, installed all new flooring, and updated the landscaping with new plants, lighting and grass. Lynn has been working with these contractors for many, many years and it shows in the quality of their work. I am not sure how Lynn is able to manage all of these tasks, but it was a huge relief knowing that we could focus on my parents’ care while she handled the sale of the house.
Lynn’s expertise helped create a home that yielded thousands of views on a beautiful custom website, and her marketing resulted in over 50 carefully screened in-person tours in just 10 days, despite the restrictions created by the pandemic. Once finished, she presented each of the offers to me and my wife and highlighted the pros and cons for each one before making a recommendation on which offer provided the best return, all while carefully considering any contingencies and the likelihood that the sale would close quickly without any issues.
Just before the close of escrow Lynn invited us to meet the new owner. We enjoyed sharing our many memories of the home with the buyer. It is comforting to know that the buyer will find joy in my parent's home as she personalizes it and starts a new chapter in her life. As for Lynn, she became so much more than just a realtor because she helped us navigate one of the most challenging events of our lives with an amazing amount of enthusiasm, compassion, and professionalism. We will be forever grateful to Lynn and her team of professionals.
We were referred to Lynn by our loan agent who recommended Lynn not only because Lynn is a top agent but more importantly for her honesty, dedication and quality of service. As soon as we met with Lynn in person, it became clear to us that she’s the right person to sell our townhome in Sunnyvale. She presented us with the market analysis for the target price, a plan to remodel our home to increase the value, and a detailed plan to promote our home in both online and offline channels. Covid-19 came unexpectedly in March and Lynn reassured us that everything is going to be fine, but we know it only means she will have to put in more effort to make sure our home are presented to the right buyers. With her advertising and marketing strategies, our home was the top viewed home on Compass website for the week that we were on the market, and around 30 potential buyers/agents showed up in person to check on our home, which is unbelievable given all the difficulties due to the Covid-19. We really appreciate all the effort and patience from Lynn and very satisfied with both her service and the outcome.
Early this year we decided it would be in our best interest to move from our home of 40 years in Mountain View to southern California. We would be closer to our children, and able to get out from under our mortgages, and get a single-story home for Judy’s disability.
We already knew Lynn North from church, and that she was a realtor with a good reputation, and we approached her to handle the sale of our Mountain View home. She first tried to be sure it was really a good idea for us to sell, then when she heard that our reasons were sound she went all in on supporting the process. Lynn not only worked on selling our home, but she took us in hand, and helped us with many other aspects of our move.
The realtor she recommended in Southern California did an amazing job finding us a new home down there. The movers she recommended were able to help us move a house with 40 years of memories in it (and maybe a little too much stuff) and they managed to get it done before the virus lockdown. The financiers she worked with arranged a bridge loan so we could find and buy our new home without selling the old one first. With all this, Lynn still did a great job of selling our beloved old house, and under extremely difficult conditions, encouraging and reassuring us along the whole way. During this entire period, the COVID-19 crisis was in full swing. Lynn arranged with multiple contractors to get our house upgraded for sale, working within many restrictions on contractor activity.
She developed methods of showing the house to potential buyers without the usual in-person walkthroughs, and many of the other techniques that are normally used by realtors to sell homes. With all this going on, Lynn upgraded our home, brought our house up for sale June 1, and we closed the sale July 21. Less than two months, in a terrible environment where we were worried that it would sell at all. Lynn arranged for all the upgrades to be paid for, with payment in the end from escrow, a great help with our limited finances. Any difficulties along the way were smoothed over with no stress for us. Everything was set up to make it as easy as possible for us. We could not be more grateful.
Our first experience with Lynn North was in 2013 when she sold our Los Altos home to us. And though she was not our realtor at the time, she was a wealth of information, advice and support, even after our move-in.
Fast forward 6.5 years when we had to move once again. There was no doubt in our minds that we wanted Lynn to sell our home. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, and so honest and fair.
Unfortunately, our timing came right when Covid-19 was taking off, but that didn't phase Lynn. She remained incredibly positive and became a leader in how to accommodate all the new guidelines while continuing to move forward. Her experience and hard work made our move and the sale of our home very easy and worry-free.
Bottom line, Lynn North is amazing at what she does! She cares about both her buyers and sellers. She is very professional, honest, well-connected and hard-working, all while making you feel like you've been friends forever. We highly recommend her!
Lynn is a true professional and her detailed and thoughtful expertise was evident in every step of the process to help and advise us when we sold our family home.
She orchestrated a team of experts to update and stage our home in record time and under budget. She knew how to price and market the home to receive maximum exposure (not just with MLS, but to a wide variety of potential buyers and agents). She conducted the open houses herself which generated a huge volume of interested buyers in a very short timeframe.
We had multiple offers well over the asking price and all buyers were vetted before we received their offers. The house sold in 10 days and closed 30 days after. We were extremely well informed throughout every stage of the process and we are so glad we had her as our Realtor.
We highly recommend her!
Lynn was great to work with. She is a true professional and knows how to get results.
We listed our house with her and she instantly cleaned it up, marketed it and far exceeded our expectations with the sale.
She was recommended to us as the best in the industry and after her performance we can only second that recommendation.
You can't go wrong with using this dynamo!
Lynn North managed the sale of our family home in the Creston area and we couldn’t have been more pleased.
She’s is a leader in the field and an area expert, so she was the definitely the right person for the job. But that’s not the reason we’re recommending her services.
She actually has an incredible gift of helping people through major transitions. Selling our family home was a big transition for us and pretty emotional. Lynn really guided us through all those difficult decisions and made everything so much easier.
Also, her remodel recommendations were spot on…our home was beautiful. Her team did a wonderful job in such a short time. And Lynn was there every step of the way.
Lastly, she really helped us understand the offers and made the closing smooth. We were not only happy with the results, but the whole process…from consultation to closing.
We absolutely loved working with Lynn.
When we moved our buying location from San Mateo county to Santa Clara county Lynn was recommended to us. As expected, she is extremely well versed in the area. It was our second attempt to purchase a home in a competitive area, first attempt with Lynn as our realtor.
She was aware of every house for sale in the area, what has sold, at what price, the value of the land, and what might be coming for sale in the near future. When we met with Lynn and saw the house we were able to have a candid discussion about the value of the home, as well as when we expected it to sell (i.e. quickly). She was already familiar with details about the seller. We used her recommended mortgage lender, which, in her words, "made our pre-approval/underwriting as good as cash."
As a first time home buyer, I'm not even sure I know what this means, but I know this market is competitive. We had our offer in the weekend after the first showing.
Lynn worked with us throughout escrow to see the house again and assist with what needed fixing. She has contacts for everything. The things we asked her about included: fumigation, foundation repair, hardwood floor refinishing, roof repair, landscaping, painting, tree removal, and solar. Not only did she have contacts in each industry, their quotes were extremely favorable and the work was excellent. Lynn's contacts are fabulous. I can't recommend Lynn enough.
Finding Lynn to arrange for the remodeling and sale of my condo felt like a God-send.
She was amazing thorough the entire process. She had her team of professionals ready to jump in with all of the needed updates to the landscaping, painting, carpentry, etc. within days of signing the contract.
As I was moving out of the area, Lynn managed all of the day-to-day details of keeping the work moving forward at record speed. The property was on the market within weeks of getting started and updated to such an extremely high level of polish that I was able to get a top dollar return on my investment.
Lynn's sales strategy was spot on. I was nervous about listing at the price she suggested, but she proved to absolutely correct in how to market the property for the best possible result. She earned my trust completely.
Lynn was able to calm my nerves at every turn about the numerous details that come up during the sale of a property.
Her photo says it all; you get that caring, sunny, and reassuring attention with every interaction. She is the consummate professional. You truly can not make a better choice than hiring Lynn to assist with all of your realty needs.
In January, I purchased a home in Sunnyvale to remodel and sell ("fix and flip"). I decided to hire Lynn after seeing she achieved a record sales price in the neighborhood.
She handled the entire process from beginning to end, including managing the contractors, deciding what needs to be done, and coordinating numerous inspections, staging, and minor repairs.
The house went from fixer upper to market ready in barely over a month. We were on vacation for much of that time, but knew the project was in good hands. Lynn did a great job marketing the property, and we got multiple offers, and sold way above asking.
In dealing with first time buyers and a relatively new agent on the purchase side, Lynn needed to provide reassurance and guide the transaction to a smooth close, which she did seamlessly.
Thank you Lynn for everything!
We never knew the value of a great realtor until Lynn North.
In only 4 weeks, she transformed our tired 1950s rental house into the most sought-after property in the neighborhood.
She coordinated dozens of people from contractors to inspectors to stagers, and then strategically managed the sale such that we received 21% over asking price.
On top of that, she simultaneously orchestrated a complex transfer of funds from this sale toward the purchase of a separate home, managing other realtors, bank representatives, and three separate title companies.
Throughout the process, we never felt overwhelmed or pressured. She was there for us every step of the way -- always accessible and genuinely caring -- providing insight, and guiding us through complications we didn’t even know we had. What more could you ask for?
Lynn helped us buy our dream home and sell our previous house.
Lynn took care of us from day 1, ensuring we got the best deal on the home we purchased AND the house we sold, working after hours, leveraging her great network and team to pull off the limited time we had to sell our house as we needed the funds as a down payment for our new home. She took the time to understand our needs, our dreams and our concerns and dedicated her time to just our sale+buy.
I am convinced you will not find a more caring, more experienced and skillful real estate agent than Lynn.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, Lynn!
We love Lynn North!
After 2 years of searching we found the ideal new home out-of-area, but we had to move very quickly to make an offer and to sell our existing home. Simultaneously buying, selling and moving would have been too overwhelming had it not been for Lynn North’s incredible capabilities.
Lynn handled our sale, provided a detailed schedule up front, synchronized our sale with the new home purchase, pulled strings to get us a mover on short notice, provided sound advice all along the way and then pulled off what we consider to be a “miracle.” She mobilized an incredible team of professionals to prepare our house for sale and it was staged, put on the market, and sold according to her original schedule.
All along, Lynn was a steady partner as well as therapist, cheerleader, interior designer, landscaper, and more. We were freed up to focus on our move, and cannot imagine this major life change being possible without Lynn.
My dad, having lived in the same house for 50 years, was hesitant and unsure about what's involved in selling his house. Lynn North guided my dad through every single step in the selling process, and made sure to explain every document he signed. She was resolute and persistent and knew how to get the best result.
Lynn always emailed my dad with updates and always copied me so I could see any and all updates too. Selling or buying a house can be stressful and confusing. Lynn really provided exceptional support and care to my dad.
I am so thankful and appreciative of Lynn and everything she did for us.
Lynn went above and beyond for us as our realtor.
She led us through the entire process of selling out house in Mountain View, including hiring and managing the contractors to make repairs and updates as needed.
I had been dreading the sales process and I was amazed at how quickly she was able to get everything done to prepare our house for market.
She is incredibly knowledgable about the area and the current housing market and will work incredibly hard for you, always with a smile.
I have never had a realtor who was so helpful to us. I highly recommend her services.
Lynn is a true professional in every sense of the word. She came to us through a recommendation by a friend and helped us transform our home and get it to market in record time.
She was very detailed oriented and had a team on hand to assist us in every step of the home selling process.
Most importantly, she was able to generate such high demand that our home was sold above listing after 1 week of open house.
We highly recommend Lynn as your go to agent for home buying and selling.
My fiancee and I went to an open house on a whim. We fell in love with the house and had to find an agent fast.
We were referred to Lynn and could not have found a better agent. She worked quickly and thoroughly while simultaneously ensuring we made informed decision every step of the way. She was incredibly professional and brought an amazing amount of energy to her work.
Anyone would be lucky to have her as their agent.
I cannot recommend Lynn highly enough to anyone who is selling their home. Our experience with her was incredible, and we shall be eternally grateful to her for her knowledge, expertise and meticulous attention which helped us sell our house and get the price we wanted.
Anyone who needs a realtor should not hesitate to call Lynn.....She's the best!!!!
In March, Lynn sold the 3rd house of mine in Mountain View over the last 10 years!
As with the previous 2 sales Lynn's expertise in knowing what was needed to prepare the house for market and getting the word out through an aggressive advertising campaign paid the usual dividend. A quick sale (9 days) and a price significantly over the asking!
If you are looking for a realtor to handle all aspects of selling your house seamlessly you won't find anyone who can do it better. When I get ready to sell the next house Lynn will be my first call!
Lynn did a great job in helping me with my experience as a first time home buyer.
She was responsive, patient, and most importantly for me, stuck with me and gave good advice when my search started to stall out.
Lynn is a ball of energy.
We needed to sell our Sunnyvale house quickly and she made it happen. And it sold for $500,000 over asking.
Her marketing strategies—everything from advertising to staging—was spot on.
We have since recommended her to others because we were so pleased with how she handled our sale.
Lynn is a seasoned professional who puts the needs and wants of her clients first!
Lynn helped us sell our Sunnyvale home this summer and it was an absolute seamless experience.
This was our first time selling and Lynn orchestrated the process perfectly starting from preparing it for the market to closing with multiple offers.
We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home in the Bay Area!
I am happy to say that Lynne made the sale of my aunts home, so easy and painless!
She did exactly what she said she would do and was responsive to any questions or needs I had.
Lynn was a true professional!
