Buyer’s Testimonials

Here’s what Lynne’s Clients are saying!

I’m not one to write reviews, but in this instance, I must. We simply could not have asked for a better experience in the home buying process, and we have Lynne to thank for that. Our little family had taken our time in deciding to dive back into the real estate market, so our list for our “forever” home was a tall one: brand new, large yard, excellent schools, a very specific aesthetic, etc. etc. And Lynne delivered on all of the above — and then some. During our home search, she spent weekends driving around with us…sharing nuances about neighborhoods, cautioning us about things to avoid, giving us the rundown on all the plusses and minuses of specific schools, and naming each home we saw with our little boys so that we could remember one from the next. And when we found the home that we were quite certain was the one, she became our tireless champion. She battled for us on pricing, brought in a meticulous inspector, dealt with issues between builder/neighbor/city, made herself available day and night for questions and updates, and worked with the seller’s agent and our lender to ensure that we closed on time (within 30 days). And as I write this (2 weeks after close) she is facilitating the completion of our after-move-in punch list (all those little things you can only catch when really living in a home). In short: we adore her. And needless to say, would recommend her to anyone even thinking about buying or selling a home. As would my boys, who now affectionately refer to her as Auntie Lynne.

Very sincerely,

The Maul Family (Molly, Brehan, Cal & Jack)

There is no better agent than Lynne Lear!! I make commercials and movies and I come from an industry where you make things happen.  Lynne has that same approach, with a work ethic and warmth that pleases both parties.  She makes her clients a top priority in her life.  She went above and beyond what any real estate agent would do.  Lynne was on it day and night, always available, never taking the easy way out.  If it wasn’t for Lynne Lear, this incredible opportunity would have been lost.  Her perseverance, hard work, and devotion to every little detail is astounding.  She got us the best deal, saved us money and protected us from a lot of head aches along the way.  What a gem!  Anybody would be extremely fortunate to have her as their agent.

Lynne Lear is a fantastic agent and helped us to find a great house in Manhattan Beach. Lynne is a very knowledgeable, professional agent who has a great sense of value, pricing, and the overall real estate market in the beach area.

Her attention to detail and knowledge of the closing process helped it to move along smoothly. She definitely goes above and beyond what is expected from an agent.

We have and would recommend her to anyone selling or buying in the South Bay area.

First Time Home Buyer:

We met Lynne at an open house and she got us right away.  Lynne was there for us at every turn.  As a superb professional, she worked very closely with us in every step of the transaction.  We found not only a lovely agent, but a lovely friend as well.  I would recommend Lynne as your agent and you should consider yourself lucky.

First Time Home Buyer:

Lynne, we can’t thank you enough for all of your help with the house.  We just LOVE it.  We really made the right decision and YOU made it happen for us.  We’re so glad we had you every step of the way and you will always be our realtor and our friend!

Lynne helped us buy a new house and sell our old house. The short review is that we recommend her to everyone.

On the new house, we weren’t exactly ideal clients- we gave her some tough requirements and my wife and I didn’t always agree on what we wanted. (I didn’t even want to move so I was less-than-cheery) In spite of that, she found us a great deal that was exactly what we asked for. Unfortunately, it was clear that there would be multiple offers. Lynne figured out what our offer should be and handled the negotiation flawlessly. After the offer was accepted, she handled everything to get escrow closed (inspection scheduling, etc.). I did not expect this follow through but it made our lives much easier.

We did things a little out of order and bought a new house before selling the old one. Needless to say, we were in a hurry to unload our old house which happened to be located in a market with too much inventory. Lynne did a great job of generating traffic and getting it sold. We ended up beating the average time-on-market for the area and feel like we got a good deal.

One final thing is that she has her phone with her everywhere. There was not a time that we couldn’t reach her for questions or help. Given the stress of buying and selling a home, it was great to have constant access when we needed it.

Corporate Relocation Buyer:

Lynne Lear worked tirelessly to determine our needs and to find us the perfect home in this cross-country move for a family of four!   She is a true professional, bringing her years as a business woman and her wide base of real estate experience to the table.  Lynne is also “grace under pressure,”  adeptly handling the myriad of issues and personalities that are part of any residential purchase and sale.  We were not only expertly represented, but also well cared for by Lynne.  Lynne says she loves her job and it truly shows in the individual attention she gave us in this seemingly monumental move!
