We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Pittsburgh, PA
I never met Ms Niman. That wasn't from lack of trying. I contacted her to assist me in buying a home in Pittsburgh. I live in Washington state so I told her that I needed to arrange a cross-country trip to begin my search. She agreed to assist me so, in response, I told her I would go ahead and arrange my trip, gave her the dates I planned to be in Pittsburgh, and provided my contact hotel information. After getting my logistics in place including non-refundable tickets, I contacted Ms. Niman again to confirm my trip plans and to begin planning my search. During the following three or four weeks, she did not respond to my requests for contact. I panicked and finally found another agent. The day before I was leaving to go to Pittsburgh, Ms. Niman finally deigned to respond to my prior requests for contact. My feeling was that I was being treated with disrespect and being patronized. She may have great knowledge of Pittsburgh but in my book being helpful, providing service, being responsive (a couple of days is fine but a few weeks? really?) are the hallmarks of a good agent. She was not helpful, she did not provide service, she was not responsive.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in West Mifflin, PA.
I bought and sold with Lynn. She is professional, knowledgeable, quick to respond, good at her job, and personable. She works very hard for you, she would often send us emails at 2 in the morning. When people were slow to respond she would call them 5 times a day.
Both our sale and purchase went perfectly due to her communication and hard work. We bought a house in Squirrel Hill in a very competitive market and she successfully guided us through a multiple bid situation.
I don’t even know if I have the words to describe how great Lynn was in our complicated home purchase. She is without a doubt the hardest working and knowledgeable agent that I’ve ever worked with. She really goes the extra mile and chooses to do so because she really loves what she does. We were in the process of moving to the Pitt area from overseas, so about 2 months before our arrival we started looking for potential agent to help us find a home in a short amount of time. I found Lynn after reading the great reviews from her Trulia page and contacted her immediately to start our process. I can personally confirm that the positive reviews are justified. She is absolutely tireless and would answer or return all forms of communication promptly and thoroughly, even if she probably thought that I was crazy at times with some of my ideas. We started working with Lynn as early as possible so that she had an idea of what we were looking for. We finally arrived to the Pitt area, and even though it was right at the Christmas and NY holiday time she took time away from her own family to show us a bunch of houses. Well, we quickly found a house which we got under contract but the story doesn’t end there. To make a long story short, the sellers backed out of the sale two weeks before closing leaving us with no home and rising bills. Lynn then worked with us to start the process all over again and we started viewing houses almost every day through weekdays and weekends in an effort to find another home. She contacted colleagues for information on houses that had just been listed so we had a better idea of their history before we viewed them in the hope of saving a little time. Well the good news is that we found a home that would be a much better fit for my family then the house we originally had on contract and it was all due to Lynn’s intelligence and work ethic. My family didn’t just gain a new home and an outstanding agent; we gained a friend.

Lynn makes the home-buying experience so comfortable. She is very helpful. She really listens to what you want and works very hard to get it for you. She's honest and down to earth. She gives good advice without being too pushy. We would use her as our agent again in a heartbeat!

My wife and I worked with Lynn for approximately 4 months to find our first home. During that time Lynn always shared great insight into the real estate market and her professional opinion of each home we viewed.
Being first time home buyers we constantly had questions. Lynn responded via email, phone or text at all hours of the day/night in a very timely manner. Additionally, if Lynn did not have best answer she knew someone that could help. For example, Lynn recommended a fantastic Mortgage Adviser who was always there to assist with the financial questions.
As Lynn could not be at our closing (due to the one vacation she has taken in several years) she still made sure to follow up with us from the airport and ensure the closing was going smoothly.
From start to finish Lynn was always there to help in any way possible and she made the first time home buying experience a pleasure!
Lynn was the second realtor that my wife and I worked with when buying our first home. After less than satisfactory experience with the first Lynn was much, much better. She was very responsive (I'm not sure she ever sleeps), patient with us being new to the entire process, willing to look at a number of houses with us, and offered helpful advice when looking at houses. She also knows her area (northern Pittsburgh suburbs) very well. She also helped us figure out where our offers on varuious houses we tried to buy/bought needed to be. We eventually found our house and Lynn made the closing process quite manageable.
If we ever have to move again and look for another house (please god no) I'd work with Lynn again in a heartbeat.

Lynn was an amazing agent to work with. She was always available and listened to all our needs. She was professional and clearly an expert in her field. She helped us purchase a house we love, in the neighborhood that we wanted, that was within our budget. Her responsiveness to all aspects of the home buying process was fantastic. She made us feel comfortable and at ease. I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone purchasing or selling a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Allison Park, PA.
Lynn Niman is a very caring, helpful and knowledgeable person and agent.
She was able to find a buyer within 30 days of listing. She was also helpful
in referring us to an agent in AZ to sell a house we had there.
Lynn is one of the first people I met when I moved to Pittsburgh 4 years ago, She found me my first home on short notice, a rental, and because of her extensive knowledge of the area and willingness to help, I called her less than an year later when I was ready to purchase. She listened to what I wanted, respected my budget, and worked hard to find me exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend Lynn and absolutely love my home.

My mother and I would like to thank you for your help with the recent sale of my late grandmother’s house. You were a true professional and went above and beyond the call of duty.
Since I do not live in the area, I thought marketing the house would present a difficult challenge. However, you were knowledgeable about the area and the market. You were always accessible and responsive to calls and questions, and you constantly kept us informed of all developments. We especially appreciate the time you spent handling the home inspection, dealing with the repair vendors, and representing us at closing.
Your support, wise counsel, patience, and reassurance made the process go smoothly and stress-free. It was a pleasure working with you and we would gladly recommend you to anybody looking to buy or sell a house. We are confident that your future clients will also be extremely impressed with the caliber of your services.
Best wishes for a success in all your future endeavors.
Nikki Aaronson and
