Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in Scotts Valley, CA.
Lynn was amazing! We needed to make a change because of the school situation with our children. We had no idea how this was going to happen, and it didn't even look possible. Lynn helped us to select the perfect area for our budget and our children's needs, and we found the most amazing home for our family. We could not be happier, and we would never have imagined finding such a gorgeous custom home IN OUR PRICE POINT. Even with many offers, she helped us to win the bidding war without over-spending for the house or our budget. She helped us to negotiate the perfect rent-back and move-in scenario. She is now a dear friend, and I would be very pleased to refer her to anyone including my own family members!

Simply put, Lynn is an amazing realtor! She went above and beyond to help us sell our home in Morgan Hill and gave us sound advise throughout the entire process.
Lynn is professional, highly experienced, and most of all, fun to work with. She was relentless in her approach and proved extremely resourceful when it came to preparing our house for the market. The suggestions she made regarding improvements and staging were spot on. She also provided sound advice regarding improvements to the outside property.
Lynn is a remarkable negotiator and did a phenomenal job representing us during the selling process. She is communicative and quickly learns and pursues the particular interests of her clients. More importantly, she is professionally aggressive and was proficient at getting us our desired selling price.
Lynn far exceeded our expectations. Without hesitation, we recommend her for anyone selling a home.

How can I disagree with that???? Seriously, thank you so much. I have really enjoyed working with you and Judy. I treasured every minute of our time together then, and I know that we will continue to be friends forever!
In May 2000, I met Lynn at an open house in Sunnyvale. I had been spending many weekends visiting open houses, as I was contemplating “moving up” and selling my current home in the Cherry Chase area of Sunnyvale. Lynn was assertive, without being too pushy. She offered to come to my home after she closed up her open house. Lynn toured my home and was able to give me the confidence to make the leap and pursue my dream of “moving up.” Granted this was the tail end of the last real estate boom, but in one month’s time, I bought a new home and then sold my existing home two weeks later. As a single woman, this was especially stressful for me, but Lynn was by my side the entire way.
As business manager I am a “Type-A” personality and also an extremely organized person - so my expectations of a real estate agent are very demanding. Lynn met all of my expectations and then some. She, too, is an organized person who is able to juggle multiple tasks at once. As a very talented artist and gardener, Lynn’s ability to recommend (and carryout) strategic and effective staging and home improvements is outstanding. Her excellent interpersonal skill in dealing with all types of personalities is another valuable trait as a real estate agent. Lastly, Lynn is an exceptional negotiator and was very good in laying out a workable negotiation strategy in the purchase and sale of my homes.

We met Lynn many years as we selected her to sell our duplex in Santa Clara. She came across as a honest trustworthy and personable agent. Over the years we have found that our perception was right on . She sold our duplex for a good price did all the things she needed to sell it in a reasonable time frame. Several years later I was going to sell my home in Campbell and guess who the first person I called was, right it was Lynn. As we had faith in her we listened carefully to her thoughts on how to sell this property.We had plenty of open houses, she also brought clients in and we hired a decorator to help us make this house the best it could be. It all paid off, we sold it for an outstanding price, and in a timely manner. Lynn is a smart and dedicated real estate agent I would recommend her to my friends and family.

My first encounter with Ms Hanchett was in a open house . I had an agent I was working with but he was too busy to come to the open house . He had other commitments with his million dollars clients. We needed a very committed and skillful agent that would help us find our dream home. I approached her to be our agent. She was very professional. She asked if I already had an agent. I said "no - my agent didn't have time for us and didn't take us to view any property, I cannot call him my agent."
In less than two months she helped us find a beautiful house. I am a very picky and demanding client. We finally found the house we loved and wanted to buy, but our budget was tight. She negotiated and used her 18 years of experience to seal the deal. Thank you Lynn for your hard work and experience. If you need an agent with a lot negotiation skills and expertise to help you find your dream home without going bankrupt, do not look any further - Lynn Hanchett will be that agent!

Thank you for your kind words. It always takes 2 elements to make a real estate dream happen...and you provided one of those 2 elements....a serious committment to the process by the buyers! Without your sincerity, nothing will happen!

We met Lynn at one of her open houses- a grand palatial home. We weren't shopping, just looking around, looking at multi million homes we couldn't afford just for fun and laughter. Lynn very carefully nurtured a potential client relationship to perfection. Fast forward 2 years later, Lynn is trustworthy, professional, and ever so perceptive in steering us towards the right house. She ties up all the loose ends, deals with all the details and paperwork, and just in general looks out for her clients' best interest. We highly recommend her with upmost sincerity and respect.

Lynn Hanchett is a truly gifted real estate agent. Lynn listed and sold my house in San Jose and I could not have been happier. My house sold immediately for a higher price than had been reached in that neighborhood. It was not a special house and had competition from the house next door which was much nicer and had been on the market for some time. Lynn and I worked together, mainly me following her advice. We made minor improvements (but critical), painted accent colors in the interior and a beautiful color on the exterior and priced the house correctly and sold it immediately at a higher price than the house next door was listed for. Consequently the neighbors fired their agent and hired Lynn and followed her advice and sold their house almost immediately for a higher price than any offer they had from their previous agent. She understands the market, who her buyers might be, and what needs to be done to the property to make it readily saleable, and at the same time she is easy to work with and fun..she makes it seem easy. She is competent, easy to get along with, has great people skills and knows the business. She has been listing and selling houses in the greater San Jose area for many years and knows the pros and cons of each area. we sold my house in record time competing against similar houses in neighborhood, proving her skills. I was amazed. As you can tell I recommend her, highly!
