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?"
