Team reviews

Lynn was this listing agent for our house in Belmont. She expertly guided us through the process, with help with everything from pricing to staging. Most impressive, when we received some low early offers, she did not push us to "just sell." We waited, and eventually found the right buyers at the right price. No ones knows Belmont, MA better than Lynn.

Sold a Condo home in 2015 in Somerville, MA.

Lynn worked with me and my husband and our rambunctious two-year-old for over a year in the Belmont, Arlington and Lexington area. Lynn replied to texts and emails immediately and she went above and beyond in almost every possible way including watching our sleeping child in the car so we could tour a house! We were so impressed with Lynn that when we decided to sell our condo in Somerville we chose her to be the selling agent as well. Lynn always steered us in the right direction on both the selling and buying side. We ended up with the home of our dreams and we were able to sell our condo at lightning speed! Thank you Lynn.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $800K in Belmont, MA.

Lynn knows the Belmont, MA extremely well. She was our sellers agent and was a great pleasure to work with. She took care of a lot of little details, such as ensuring the garbage was removed after the garage sale, taking cafe of carbon monoxide and fire alarms. Her team was outstanding in the staging of our home. We had multiple competitive offers a few days after the open house. This was our first home sale, and she walked us through the process and answered all our silly questions very quickly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $725K in Belmont, MA.

When another realtor was unable to sell our house, we turned to Lynn. We were impressed by her clear market strategy and her understanding of our needs. After a short time and many open houses, she brought us buyers to choose from. With her expertise we sold our house.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Belmont, MA.

Lynn MacDonald helped me find my home in Belmont in 2008 and then helped me sell it in 2013 when it was time to down-size (and buy my delightful condo in Waltham). I cannot imagine a real estate agent with more integrity and competence than Lynn. She knows the market inside and out, making excellent use of both on-line tools and old-fashioned networking. She worked with me tirelessly on both occasions to help me determine what was best for me, nudging me skillfully away from my more fanciful visions toward what would truly make me happy. She negotiated great deals for me which were also fair. When I bought the older Belmont home, she helped me understand what was and was not going to be acceptable to the sellers in terms of remediation and we achieved appropriate accommodations. When I sold the house, she came in on the other side and I was on the hook for virtually nothing. The buyers felt they were lucky to be getting the house despite its signs of age. Lynn was brilliant in structuring the deal on my new condo, ensuring that I would win in the eventual bidding war that she had predicted. Oh and then, when there was a bidding competition of the sale of my Belmont home, Lynn;s sensitivity about the two buyers in contention helped guide me toward the couple who would prove to be the highest offer with the easiest terms. Honestly, right-sizing was a huge and ugly task that I was really wanting to put off, even as I knew it made sense. Lynn's reading of the market and her diligence in finding me a new place I just love led me to "get off the dime" and sell my house at a really great time for a really great price. I cannot recommend Lynn MacDonald more highly.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K 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 in East Watertown, Watertown, MA 02472.

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 in Payson Park, Belmont, MA 02478.

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.
