Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $3.575M in Belvedere, CA.
I recently purchased a home in the Tiburon/Belvedere area and it is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation on behalf of Shana Rhode-Lynch.
Shana is highly knowledgeable of the Marin County market and has a granular understanding of the key attributes (e.g., values, city planning policies, school systems, local amenities, traffic patterns, weather, noise, etc.) of the various cities/submarkets within the county. Shana has substantial experience representing sellers and buyers within the county, and has a thorough understanding of residential sales process, including more complicated transactions (e.g., my transaction involved a bankruptcy sale process). Importantly, Shana is responsive, organized and consistently follows up on open matters that arise in a transaction.
In short, I highly recommend Shana Rhode-Lynch to anyone seeking an agent to represent them on either a purchase or sale in Marin County.

The best part about working with Shana is that you can get as involved as you want, or just sit back, relax, and let her do her thing, knowing full well she has every detail of the process under tight control. I didn't quite fully appreciate the talent & tools required to close a competitive bidding process in a tight market, but Shana provided a great case study in my house purchase on how a few strategic tweaks to the offer, personal touches, and market savvy-ness can be the difference between winning your dream house, or bidding & losing on multiple houses while wasting valuable time. Every time you make a run at a house, there are a few key moments in the transaction where the caliber of broker you have on your side makes all the difference. Shana approaches the process in a very sophisticated & tactical manner. Shana clearly separates herself from the competition with her humble, confident, and razor sharp knowledge of Marin real estate, which put all my worries at ease.
For someone as successful and busy as Shana, I was shocked at how accommodating she was to my tour requests/ questions that arose throughout the process. Never did I feel like I wasn't her only client.
The cherry on top is that Shana is as sweet as could be, and fun to be around. I couldn't recommend a better advisor than She.

I have worked with Shana over the last 15 years through the purchase and sale of 5 homes, with a 6th underway. I cannot honk of a better way to recommend her than through this repeat partnership. She is my realtor for life. She has a terrific team as well and n
There isn't a missed detail.
Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $675K in San Rafael, CA.
We sold our home in Marin with Shana's help. We were under no major time crunch to sell it (since we planned on moving to LA next year) and decided to pocket list (to avoid the hassles of Sunday open houses and to have serious buyers only make visits) our home first before putting it on the public MLS six months later. Shana has really good contacts and a great reputation among peers. She was able to get buyers for our home through another agent very shortly after pocket listing. The listing, flyers, brochures were done professionally and in a timely manner. She made sure the whole process was painless and transparent at each step. Her assistant Brittany was also very helpful during our sale transaction. Overall this was probably the smoothest and easiest RE transaction we were involved and would definitely use Shana and recommend her for anyone moving to the Bay Area (not just Marin).
In a highly competitive marketplace working with the right agent is SO important! Shana is THAT agent, who knows how to get the job done. She is highly respected among her peers, extremely knowledgeable about the market, and a strong negotiator. Shana helped my wife and I purchase a home in a multiple offer situation and we feel that she was largely responsible for getting our offer accepted and the deal closed. We have already referred her to others and will continue to do so in the future.

Shana Rohde-Lynch and her team did an outstanding job with the successful sale of my Tiburon house.
Shana’s invaluable real estate expertise, attention to detail, superb marketing skills, patience and diplomacy, resulted in a relatively quick sale, despite the difficult market and multiple escrows!
I have worked with many real estate agents over the years and had many choices with whom to list my house. Shana's first class marketing skills and excellent negotiating skills proved that I made the right choice! Shana's insight, guidance and recommendations on pricing strategies, knowledge of neighborhoods, and quality of construction and finishes were all invaluable in ensuring that I got the highest price.
She did a first rate job of providing advice on pricing, design recommendations as well as advice on dealing with prospective buyers. She was very thorough and did an excellent job at organizing the listing, marketing materials, realtor showings and open houses. Shana's extensive real estate experience combined with her professional manner and integrity made her and her assistant Brittany a pleasure to work with.
Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $2.275M in Tiburon, CA.
Shana Rohde-Lynch has assisted me in the buying and selling of three properties in Tiburon over the last few years, (5) real estate transactions in all.
My primary objectives were to obtain top dollar for my homes and to purchase my chosen properties for the lowest possible market price. Shana's first class marketing skills and excellent negotiating skills helped accomplish these objectives.
Through the whole buying and selling process Shana strongly adhered to my philosophy that every dollar counts and she did a first rate job in holding the line on both my selling and buying prices.
Shana's strategies included advice on pricing, recommending some minor adjustments and maintenance for better showing, as well advice on dealing with prospective buyers and timing of sale versus repurchase etc.
She was very quick to organize the listings, realtor showings and open houses and had a keen sense of the busy schedule I had at the time, and she worked successfully at juggling my schedule with that of prospective showings and buyers.
Shana's insight, guidance and recommendations on pricing strategies, strengths and weaknesses of potential homes, knowledge of neighborhoods, knowledge on quality of construction and finishes were all very valuable in my decision making process.
Shana's extensive real estate experience combined with her professional manner and integrity made it a pleasure to have her acting on my behalf.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $425K in Novato, CA.
Quite simply, we would not have our new home if we had not hired Shana. We have hired other realtors and there is no comparison. The seller of our property was very, very challenging in that he took great pride in his home, felt it was worth more than market value and was a very tough negotiator. Shana was equally as tenacious and kept working tirelessly with this seller to ensure we got the property....and may I say again, she worked tirelessly. Also, when seller and buyer did not agree, Shana somehow made it work to ensure the process was continued and the home became ours. Most importantly to my husband and me is that Shana demonstrated a real "human" aspect to the process. She genuinely cared for us and really wanted to see this home be ours. She is a very, very rare find in the "realtor world" and I highly recommend her. Having the best realtor can "make or break" buying your dream home or selling your current home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2005 for approximately $1.15M in San Rafael, CA.
I am an active commercial agent in Marin County and have hired Shana to represent my husband and myself in the sale of my personal residence. Shana is one of the most professional and hard working agents I have ever worked with and I highly recommend her for either buyer or seller representation. She has an excellent and well deserved reputation for getting the job done!
