|Lynne is the Best! She has a great feel for what it takes to get a house in this crazy market. Her experience is invaluable. I LOVE Lynne Mercer!|
|We are absolutely thrilled with Lynne Mercer as our Realtor. She recently sold our home in Mountain View and we could not have made a better choice. We had 14 offers on our home and the sale price not only exceeded our expectations, it exceeded our imaginations! We actually set the all-time record sale price for a home of our size in our neighborhood. Lynne is the most intelligent, professional, thoughtful, honest, detail-oriented Realtor that we have ever worked with. We simply did everything she told us to do, and equally important, we listened to her advice about everything not to do, and the results were spectacular. She wisely advised us against a costly kitchen remodel, and searched for the best prices for the other quality work that we had done, and the house looked gorgeous with minimal cost to us. She has outstanding marketing skills, and during the busy open house she was really able to appreciate and highlight the many small details that made our home great.|
|I've worked with Lynne on three home purchases and three sales. I've come to appreciate her good advice, attention to detail, and the way she explains each step of these very complex transactions. We would definitely recommend Lynne if you want to buy or sell a house on the peninsula!|
|You are the best thing that can happen to a first-time buyer! You guided me through the whole home buying process… You carefully listened to me as we visited each place to understand what I wanted and adjust the home search process accordingly. I would highly recommend (you) to anyone who wishes to buy or sell a house.|
