Tom and Judy Brosz
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.
