Sue Turner - November 2, 2019
"I met Lynn a couple of years ago when she was hosting an open house in my neighborhood. She was warm, friendly and informative. But what was even more apparent was her honesty and compassion. I knew then when I needed a realtor I would call her. Fast forward two years later I called Lynn to tell her that I was thinking of relocating. I also told her that I didn't want any pressure because I was still looking for a place. She was enthusiastic but did not pressure me at all. Then, one and a half months ago I found my new place and called Lynn to tell her. She told me "great, I need 3 weeks to get you on the market." It was exactly 3 weeks and my house sold in one weekend with multiple offers! Not only did Lynn keep to her timeline, but she was very supportive during the process. Moving is very stressful no matter how quickly things happen. I had total faith and trust in Lynn and she didn't let me down! I can honestly say, Lynn is "simply the best!""


Scott Wetenkamp - October 20, 2019
"We were referred to Lynn by another happy client of hers and were instantly impressed. We interviewed the top agents in our area and Lynn was by far the right choice. Lynn made the whole process painless. That’s no small feat! She is very organized and detail oriented and keeps all parties informed, so surprises are minimized."


Bart Gach - October 5, 2019
"We've known Lynn North for many years as she is the person that sold our first house for us and was able to during the market crisis to get us what we wanted from that house. The house had some factors such as PG&E towers to make it hard to sell but Lynn gathered the information from experts to make it happen.

About five years later after I recommended Lynn to my sister n law Lynn came through again with her excellent work crew to get more from that house then ever imagined.

Now, after the unfortunate death of my Mother Lynn came through again to get top dollar for the house and during that time there were five people on the title and one of them passed away and Lynn still made it happen showing the care our family needed and have gotten to know Lynn for.

Once again we are working with Lynn on our family home which being an older home was in need of lots of work and tender loving care. Lynn has seen to it that everything was being taken care of while we were away on vacation which had been planned much before the sale of the house. Again, Lynn and her crew has made things come together and the family home should shortly be on the market and I know Lynn will be fighting for us to sell the house to a caring family for top dollar. Lynn North, thank you for always fighting for us."


Kelly Shoemake - September 15, 2019
"We found Lynn through a highly recommended referral. She made everything so easy and less stressful. We are SO HAPPY that Lynn entered our lives to make this big transition an easier one. She was so AND continues to be so helpful with the whole relocation process! We can not recommend her enough. Extremely responsive, friendly, genuine, and lovely to work with. She makes you feel as if you are part of her family. Thanks Lynn for all your hard work!"


Gloria Beaird - June 5, 2019
"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."


Mike and Vicki McElroy - May 31, 2019
"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."


Holte Family - March 5, 2019
"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."


Vicki - March 2, 2019
"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?"
