Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Belmont, MA.

I hired Lynn MacDonald of Coldwell Banker to sell my home in Belmont. From beginning to end Lynn was a total professional. She knows the market and how to best present your home to potential buyers. At every step in the process Lynn is on top of things and keeps you informed in real time. Additionally Lynn has great connections with contractors, handymen, estate sale people, real estate lawyers, movers ….etc. Lynn did a fantastic job and I strongly recommend you consider hiring her when you are contemplating buying or selling real estate.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.3M in Belmont, MA.

During the summer of 2014, Lynn helped us both purchase a townhouse closer Boston and sell our home in Belmont. She was outstanding on both sides of these transactions. Lynn is knowledgable about the market and uses lots of data to support her recommended strategy. She priced the property appropriately, aggressively marketed the house- and it sold in 4 days with multiple offers. A portion of this result can be attributed to market conditions, but Lynn masterfully managed the process to a successful conclusion. My wife and I unconditionally recommend Lynn to anyone needing an experienced and effective real estate broker who will work hard for her clients.

Sold a home in 2014.

Lynn did a fabulous job listing and selling my home. Lynn outlined and implemented a precise plan to sell the house with nice staging, terrific photos, and good internet presence. She and Al presented a convincing marketing strategy, with a good asking price for the house. Lynn was very responsive and timely to all queries. Lynn and her team worked hard with multiple open houses, keeping track of all dates and deadlines, and getting all paperwork and certifications done in a timely manner. It was a pleasure working with Lynn. I highly recommend Lynn as a selling agent.

Sold a home in 2014.

We chose Lynn to represent us to sell our home, and to help us purchase a new home as well, because of her experience and knowledge of the market. On the sale side, her team did everything; proper pricing, assisting us with home staging, taking photos and arranging all the necessary inspections and utility changeovers. We got an offer over our asking price after less than a week!

When it came to our purchase, her knowledge of the market, what and how to present our offer, and guidance through the mortgage and closing process was invaluable. As stressful as this process can be she made it much easier on us.

I highly recommend Lynn, and when we are back in the market, we would not use another broker.

Sold a home in 2014.

Lynn MacDonald is a real treasure. She took care of everything for me with my Newton property. The house sold quickly. She was professional throughout and dealt with the inevitable minor obstacles behind the scenes, telling me only after the sale was complete what she had done to keep everything flowing smoothly. The staging was so lovely, I almost changed my mind about selling it. It is rare to find such a thorough approach these days. Having her manage this sale was the best thing I could have done for myself.

Sold a home in 2014.

Lynn helped my wife Iris and I sell our house in Davis Square. Selling a property in the hot market in Davis Square may seem like a simple task but Lynn not only sold the property $100k over the asking price but set the benchmark on a two family sales price in Somerville at the time. Her team marketed the property with great expertise and efficiency obtaining 8 offers in a matter of 4 days. Upon receipt of these offers she personally came to my office to review all face to face so that we could select the most suitable buyer for the property. If you are considering selling your home you truly could not select a better listing agent in the Boston area!

Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 for approximately $700K in Belmont, MA.

Working with Lynn was a pleasurable experience. Her knowledge and experience in the real estate field are crucial assets of a realtor and help make the selling process successful. She is very well respected by her peers in the real estate field. I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Belmont, MA.

We have personally had two positive experiences with Lynn. Three years ago, she helped our daughter and son-in-law find a wonderful home within their price range. When there were issues at the closing, she was able to reassure us that the seller's issues would be settled and that the house was worth "waiting for." This advice was excellent. There was a successful closing a short time later and the house was indeed worth the extra hassle. This year, Lynn was instrumental in helping us locate a retirement home and in its purchase. She was also the broker for the subsequent sale of our family home. It was an emotional time--both joyful and pensive--and Lynn was there to provide support in all aspects of the purchase and the subsequent sale. She also gave us very practical advice and recommendations on moving matters--clean out people, movers, packers, and handymen, She walked us through the process of cancelling services at the one home and picking them up at the new place. Lynn was always available to answer questions from the simplest to the most complex. Bottom line: we are comfortable and happy in our new townhouse condo, and received a fair and generous purchase price for our previous home. We cannot recommend Lynn MacDonald enough--you will not go wrong with Lynn!.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.175M in Belmont, MA.

Lynn was very responsive to our needs from the very start. She was knowledgeable about the current market and advised us as to listing price: high enough to make us happy and low enough to get many potential customers through the door. She helped us "stage" the house, which showed it off to its best advantage. She managed an open house on a dead-end street with finesse and kept everyone happy. She responded to text messages quickly and worked hard to advertise our house in every available market. She was professional and warm - a tough combination to achieve. Lynn knew when to push hard, and when to back off. This was helpful in her dealings with us, and with potential buyers. What impressed me most was her willingness to spend some of her commission dollars on things like staging, arranging for installation of carbon dioxide monitors by a retired fireman and removal of paint cans. I'm sure her incidental costs only came to a few hundred dollars but it indicated her willingness to do whatever needed to be done to sell our house. Not only would I recommend her without reservation - I hope to continue to have a relationship with her as a friend!
