What My Clients Say about
My Commitment and Performance
“People don’t care how much you know…until they know how much you care”
Where to begin…? A heartfelt THANK YOU for all of your help, guidance and support! We hope we haven’t officially scared you away from all first time home buyers as any newbies really need you on their side! Thank you for taking us under your wing and for doing your best to keep us sane during this process. Time and time out you went above and beyond for us – thank you!
Thank you again Andrea. You were a true blessing from the Realtor GodsNeedless to say, we couldn't be more pleased with the way things worked out! It was wonderful to work with you Andrea. We always felt like we were in good hands and were comforted working with someone who we trusted and knew really cared.
Tom and Lindsay L., San Mateo
Andrea is an excellent agent to work with. We were really impressed with her right from our first call. We spoke with another agent and finally decided to work with Andrea. We couldn't be more right about the decision. She is very professional, communicative and a friendly person. She sure does have a great knowledge on the market trends and the peninsula neighborhoods. She made sure to follow all the precautions during the COVID time and had a detailed plan of how everything is going to be executed. She was also responsive to all our texts/emails or phone calls. We have to move to a different state and she was so generous to offer help to take care of our movers, cleaning, staging and listing the place. Without her help, our move would have been really difficult. Not only, she took care of everything, she updated every step on the process every single day and made sure that we are not overwhelmed. We definitely had a positive experience with selling our house and would recommend Andrea to our friends.
Sid and Divya, Foster City
Wow! Andrea is just one of those people with whom you immediately feel confident and comfortable. We were dealing with a complicated family estate home sale and Andrea made the entire process seamless. She is the ultimate professional, personable and trustworthy. Her knowledge and expertise was invaluable and she was clearly committed to our success and happiness! She listened and acted on each and every one of our concerns during a very stressful time and always made us feel like a priority. She also advised us perfectly on how best to present the home and maximize its value. She listed the home in July 2013 and we immediately had multiple offers and sold above the asking price! What more can I say than that she far exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend her for any of your real estate needs. Thank you, Andrea!
Chuck and Janice C., San Mateo
Andrea made the sale of our house a top priority. Her enthusiasm from the first time we talked carried through to the final signature. As this was the first property we ever sold she listened carefully to our many concerns and promptly responded to our numerous questions. We relied heavily on her expert recommendations for improvements to better present our property and she was so right. Our house sold in a very short time with multiple offers and above the asking price! Andrea did a great job and comes highly recommended.
Bruce and Jan C., Belmont
I am sorry it has taken so long for me to respond to the news of the sale. THANK YOU for all your help. You are a fantastic realtor and I can’t tell you how glad I was with all the details of the sale. Please use me as a reference if you ever need one.
Laura B., San Mateo
Andrea knew the market and what it would take to achieve the best possible sale price. I would consider her a residential real-estate expert. Andrea is incredibly responsive and negotiates deals effortlessly, as if she already knew what the outcome would be. Andrea has great integrity and truly considers the human experiences involved on both sides. If a situation requires preparation, then expect Andrea to be contacting you ahead of time. No stone(s) were left untouched!!
Joseph P., San Mateo
Andrea made the deal happen. Her recommendations and resources allowed us prepare the house for sale and get the best net return possible. She is a pleasure to work with, always available and a lot of fun. There were no wasted motions during the preparation and transaction. I highly recommend using Andrea.
Ken W., San Mateo
Andrea was my agent when I bought and later sold my condo. She was extremely helpful and knowledgeable every step of the way. I had never purchased or sold property before, and Andrea did a great job of helping me through the process in both cases. Andrea is always responsive and able to answer my questions. I know I can trust her to give me an honest opinion. And of course she is always friendly and a joy to work with. I recommend her to anyone in need of an agent!
Angela F., San Mateo
Highly Recommend! We are first time home buyers and extremely satisfied with Andrea. Since this was our first home purchase, she took the time to explain documents and the overall closing process. She is abreast on current housing market conditions and has a strong skill-set structuring competitive offers. Andrea is also honest, patient, and well connected within the Real-Estate community which was a pivotal factor for closing on our home. As first time homebuyers, we couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Andrea.
Leila and Brandon W., Burlingame
We want to thank you for the great job you did. Your advice was sound and practical and we believe you got us the best bottom line with good buyers and a quick sale. Your help all the way through made it as easy as it could be for us under the circumstances. Your contractors were excellent and thorough. Thanks again for the great job that you did. Plus it was fun working with you. Too bad we only sell a house once in a great while or we would be repeat customers. If you ever need a reference letter, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks again. Andrea made the deal happen. Her recommendations and resources allowed us prepare the house for sale and get the best net return possible. She is a pleasure to work with, always available and a lot of fun. There were no wasted motions during the preparation and transaction. I highly recommend using Andrea.
Kent and Betty W., San Mateo
We love the house! We appreciate all of your help and superb follow-through. You were an excellent real estate agent and met all of our needs in a prompt, courteous manner.
Jaap and Janette M., Atherton
We wanted to thank you for helping us find our new home. We really appreciate your professionalism, your genuine concern for finding us the right home and most importantly – your patience. We are sincerely grateful for your guidance and advice in this process which was very new to us. Thank you so much for everything.
Ravi and Shruti., San Mateo
We don’t know where we would have been in the home buying process without you!! Our expression of gratitude can go until infinity towards your efforts in helping us purchase our first home. Thank you for being honest, patient, and most importantly a voice of reason. We will definitely keep in touch.
Eddie and Andrea G., Belmont
How can we begin to thank you for ALL you have done for us and continue to do for us? We could have never sold the house without you. The endless hours you put in to advertise the house, the open houses you held, the list goes on and on. We are so grateful for all of your hard work. The extra work that you have had to put in since the sale of the house is really above and beyond the call of duty and we are so appreciative. We have told everyone we know about you and will continue to refer you to anyone who asks. Though we have just moved into our new home, you can be sure that when the day comes to sell our house, we will call you right away.
Lili and Stephan G., Daly City
Thank you very much for all your help. You did a great job in educating me on the Palo Alto market. I’m sorry that the end result caused us to look in a less expensive/more value area. I’ll keep in touch and if we need to list it, I’ll be sure to look you up.”
Wayne C., Palo Alto
We are still getting settled in, in between our crazy schedule. Our agent, Andrea Lynn, was absolutely wonderful. She helped us make it through this purchase – our first home. She was totally honest and completely fair. She worked all hours and weekends. She really went out of her way to make sure the transaction went smoothly. I would recommend her to anyone I knew of who needed a good agent. Paul and Elizabeth S., San Carlos
Mark and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did on the purchase of our home. Knowing that we were purchasing our first home, you did and excellent job of explaining the entire process. Your uncompromising service was evident in every step of the process. From your negotiating skills in seeing us through a multiple offer situation to your communication skills in keeping us well informed every step of the way, you went above and beyond the call of duty. You definitely are our “agent for life” and we will
spread the word to all of our friends. Again, thank you so much for making our “dream come true.
Mark and Diane F., Redwood City
Heaps of thanks! A job very well done!!!!! How did we luck out with such an agent????
Eleanor B., San Francisco
Andrea Hafner Lynn is one of the best real estate agents on the peninsula! Our experience with Andrea was like meeting an “old friend”, and enjoying the process of selling our home. No one could have taken better care of our needs, questions, reservations and desire to make this the best possible experience for both us and the buyers of our home. We highly recommend Andrea to our friends. She was always available, easy to converse with and professional in every step of the process. Not only did Andrea help “stage” our home, but she made the myriad of paperwork easy to understand and complete. Our results were fast and within our goals: a good price and a good family, who would enjoy this lovely property. Thanks Andrea!
Tony and Patricia D., Belmont, CA
Andrea Lynn is, in our opinion and without a doubt, the ultimate Real Estate Agent. During our entire home selling process, she was completely pro-active in the effort, from preparing for the sale to offering assistance in staging the home for presentation. When it became time for us to put our home on the market, we engaged Andrea as our Real Estate Agent. Our references stemmed from working very closely together on the Spinnaker Cove Board of Directors for many years. In that position, she exhibited the utmost in integrity and knowledge of current real estate issues. Our observations were well founded as Andrea was an excellent fit for our needs, and provided outstanding counsel to us, which countered our lack of knowledge. Andrea said that she would research all recent sales and offers at Spinnaker Cove and similar properties so that we would have the background to set the most beneficial listing price. She also advised us how to stage the house by discussing and showing what areas needed attention to make the home more attractive. Andrea in formed us as to what knick-knacks need to be removed, how to set up the china cabinet and other personal effects that would enhance the presentation. She surveyed every room and advised what to rearrange or remove to allow for a greater perception of roominess. While we were working to stage the unit to meet her recommendations, Andrea contacted us daily to offer any help she could provide. She was constantly expressing her interest in helping us complete the staging process.
When the staging was complete, we discussed the pricing data discovered during her research. After great advice, we were able to set a very comfortable price. She scheduled the dates for the Brokers Tour and an Open House. Andrea then videotaped the unit and placed a very professional “Virtual Tour” on her web site. The virtual tour displayed the unit in the most beautiful manner possible. Andrea scheduled the Broker’s Tour and subsequent Open House in such a way that minimized disruption in our very busy lives. With the Broker’s Tour complete, Andrea was able to advise her colleagues of the availability of the unit. The day after the Broker’s Tour, we received an offer of $5,500.00 over the asking price and it met all logistical requirements of our impending move. Andrea proceeded with all requirements of the sale and worked diligently for a 30 day close. Her efforts were commendable. Closing was accomplished within the requested time with no exceptions to the property. Andrea’s dedication to her profession is only one area of her unique personality. She is very personable and outgoing with a sense of humor that, we feel, would put any client at ease while working with her. Andrea has demonstrated integrity and professionalism above reproach. Anybody would do well to engage Andrea as his or her agent. We cannot thank her enough for all of the assistance she provided during the sale of our home.”
Richard and Gail T., Foster City
Just wanted to thank you once again for handling the sale of my mother’s home in San Mateo. She is extremely satisfied with the timely sale to a very qualified buyer in these very difficult real estate times. Should we encounter future reality needs, we will certainly call upon yourself and Coldwell Banker.
Benson C., San Mateo
We are still getting settled in, in between our crazy schedule. Slowly but surely, it’s coming together and feels like home. Thanks for all your help – we love it.
Robert and Karen H., Burlingame
This letter is to express my thanks and appreciation for the job done by Andrea Lynn in the Belmont sale and also for the steady and thorough professionalism with which she handled the less challenging, but no less important, Sunnyvale sale. This included Andrea leading me and my lender the Seller’s Chapter 13 situation; Andrea getting us through a difficult set of issues around getting a new roof in place; Andrea riding herd on my lender, who dropped the ball at the last minute; Andrea and her husband helping me actually move the seller out of the house, carrying his furniture down the 38 stairs, and finally ad spectacularly Andrea recovering the $700 in costs I incurred from not being able to move into the house after closing. I should also mention that Andrea was very patient during my hunting period and was effectively able to figure out what I was looking for and not waste any time with the obvious non-starters. I have already recommended Andrea to several friends and will continue to do so. Thanks again for Coldwell’s support during this process and I hope you can keep Andrea happy so she can keep people like me happy too.
