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!

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!"

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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 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!

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 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.

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 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!

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 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!

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 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.

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!

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!!!!
