What Our Clients Say
Thank you for all your help in finding our lovely first home! You made the process fun and we really appreciate all the insight you provided.
All the best, Katie & Jonathan
If you are contemplating the sale or purchase of a property, I highly recommend the services of Lynn Trevor as your realtor.
She recently helped prepare and sell my parents’ home. She recommended and helped coordinate a few minor repairs/ renovations on a house that hadn’t had any updating in 50 years. Which, when completed, increased the value of the house by about $75,000, with the costs to complete considerably less than the return! She then staged the house with a combination of my parents furniture and some of her own things, making it look modern and welcoming. Within three weeks of the ‘For Sale’ sign going up, the house was sold for 98% of the asking price!
Lynn is friendly, personable and smart. She is very up to date on market trends and very aware of what buyers are looking for in a home. My father was initially reluctant to take her advice, but upon the sale, he was delighted he had.
Once again, I highly recommend Lynn Trevor as your realtor. She was an invaluable resource to us in a difficult time, and she will be the same for you. She is a careful negotiator and will obtain for you the best value for your money on what is probably the largest purchase/ sale of your life.
We could not have done this without you Lynn!- Nancy
I bought and sold my first house through Lynn, many years ago, and have just sold my 3rd home through Lynn, as I head into semi-retirement in another province.
She is always completely current on market values in and around the Ottawa area and insists on a house looking its very best before the for sale sign goes up and full marketing begins. As a professional visual artist myself, I understand the importance of this.
All of my homes sold in under 2 weeks for a price I was more than happy with!
One can only hope to find an agent as professional and accommodating.
Many years, many thanks Lynn!- Shaun
Lynn you do so much more than just help people buy and sell their homes. I tell everyone I know-‘if you do what Lynn advises you to do, your home will sell in a snap at top price.’ You know how to price, prep, stage, negotiate; you help us, as buyers and sellers, to work through the emotional, financial and operational maze of moving! And the photos!!! When people see our video, they all say why did you sell that beautiful home?? Thanks Lynn!- Linda & Hatem
We can’t begin to thank you enough for making this ‘journey’ of buying a condo as enjoyable as possible.
Your professionalism, work ethic, knowledge and patience are second to none.
It has truly been a pleasure working with you. We will be referring your services to everyone we know!
With much gratitude & appreciation. – Carmen & Ricardo
Thank you again for helping me find the house I wanted. This is my second time dealing with you as my real estate agent (first time was selling my house) and both times, the experience working with you was very, very positive from beginning to end.
You just proved again what I already knew- you are hard working and an expert real estate agent, whose top priority is the best interests of your client.
One of the things that I admire about having you as my agent, is you really made an effort to understand what I wanted and what I didn’t want and you adjusted accordingly. Before proceeding with physically looking at houses, we talked extensively about my desires in terms of location, price, size of house, etc., reviewing examples in the various locations, and only then did we make our selection, based on my criteria, and start looking. I also really appreciated that you did not lead me to higher priced houses and really understood what fit my plans.
Another thing I appreciate very much is that, even though I was ready to remove all conditions ahead of the deadline, you took the time to review some good points with me and strongly suggested adding some extra clauses in the final Purchase Agreement that would help protect my interests. I don’t know how many agents would take the time to do this once their client decided to go ahead with the purchase. That just proved to me, even more, that you go the extra mile to protect your clients best interests.
During the whole process you answered all the questions I had with top notch knowledge about the market, mortgages, neighbourhoods, etc., helping me make the right decisions.
Lynn, it was a great pleasure working with you. Thank you again. I will gladly recommend you to anyone needing a Realtor! Sincerely – Kolja
It is simple, when Lynn is your agent, she takes the job of selling your home as seriously as you do. Lynn came highly recommended by a few friends whose houses she had sold. To quote one friend: “Lynn is a legend, she sold my house in one day”. With that kind of referral, we were confident we were in good hands, but we got so much more than we expected! From the beginning, Lynn’s incredible attention to detail, judgement, creativity, in-depth knowledge of the real estate market and work ethic, helped us sell our first home quickly, at top dollar, in the shortest period possible!
What impressed us even more was Lynn’s dedication to her clients. Lynn made herself available to us at every moment, answered all of our questions and helped guide us through renovations and the selling process. She was there every step of the way and did not mind getting her hands dirty, alongside with us. We often joked that we felt like Lynn lived with us. By listening to Lynn’s advice, and with her amazing marketing strategy, we sold our house in 3 days.
Lynn, thank you for making this process painless and enjoyable!- Galina, Gaelle & Arcade, first time sellers
Lynn, I think of you so often. I felt there was someone watching over me that I should find myself with such a pleasant, astute, quick, smart agent looking after the most important decision I was going to make in my single life. I knew the view was going to be the most important factor. The thought of looking out over snowy backyards was too depressing to think about. I swoon with the view of the Parliament Buildings. I feel so lucky to be here- thanks to you.- Gladys
I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into selling my house, from the very beginning, right through to the end. It was a great pleasure dealing with you from your expertise and experience, to your very positive and personal approach. As you remember, I initially got in touch with you based on the very strong recommendation from one of your previous clients, and I am so glad I did! I will highly and gladly recommend you to everyone I know. You truly impressed me with your great expertise, knowledge, dedication and really hard work. Although I was initially skeptical of whether or not rearranging my furniture and art would make a difference, the effort you gave to re-decorate my house in order to make it more saleable, did prove to be essential. That, to me, was the kind of personal engagement not many agents would take on. Throughout the entire sales process, the presentations were very positive and as a result you got me my desired selling price! Lynn, again, I would just like to thank you for a very smooth sale- a BIG thank you!- Kolja
Could never have made it through what was an emotionally difficult time in selling the family home without the patience, compassion and support from both Lynn and Rod. The time and respect that was given to both myself and my family will remain in our memory. Throughout the whole emotional roller coaster they were there to help us make sound business decisions, and went above and beyond to help us achieve maximum return, in what can be a difficult rural market. Cannot express our gratitude enough! -Kathryn
In this day and age, good service is hard to come by, so we want you to know that we found exceptional service with you. You went beyond the call of duty helping us find a home. Your calm assurance & confident knowledge helped to eliminate our stress and left us feeling firmly taken care of. We will never forget your kindness, generosity, understanding & your wonderful smile. We find it hard to put into words, our gratitude to you. You are truly a very, very special & unique person. Come visit when you can. Our doors will always be open to you! – Gene & Marion
Thank you so much for all you did to help us find a beautiful new home & sell our old one. We really appreciate all the work you did to help us sell our home. Your advice on renovations & pricing, your efforts in finding and liasing with contractors & the beautiful staging were above & beyond the call of duty & something we will never forget. We were extremely relieved that the house sold so quickly & were thrilled that it sold for higher than the asking price! We hope that we will never have to move again (!!!) but if we ever did, we would definitely look you up and will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends. Thanks again, -Jamie & Kelly
A huge thank you for your outstanding work and help with our home! -Neil
Lynn has been associated with our extended, Ottawa-area family since the mid-90’s. Lynn’s best quality is the extreme care she takes to understand her clients’ wish lists (both written and unwritten) before showing them properties. Never has a friend or family member complained about Lynn wasting their time by showing them properties that did not meet their needs or expectations.
When it was our turn to buy, we ended up purchasing the first property Lynn showed us. Sure we looked at the other properties, but Lynn had met our needs with the first one. Thanks again Lynn. -Helen
