Clients are saying:
"Although Mary Lynn became our broker by chance, we were fortunate to find ourselves working with her. We were not committed to buying a vacation home, but she willingly gave of her time, at times that were convenient to us, to help us find a house. Mary Lynn never pushed us towards a purchase decision but instead was balanced in her advice about buying a home away from home. All along the path towards closing, Mary Lynn did everything she could to make the purchase as easy for us as possible. Thank you, Mary Lynn!"
"Mary Lynn was wonderful and so attentive and became a friend immediately!"
"On a lark, we decided to look at a Lake Michigan waterfront property while vacationing in Saugatuck. Mary Lynn happened to be the agent on the listed property. When the listing was not what we thought it would be, Mary Lynn proceeded to line up six additional properties for us to inspect on very short notice. Mary Lynn couldn't have been nicer, or more patient, when, for various reasons, those properties fell short of what we wanted. After we returned home, Mary Lynn kept looking on our behalf, and when a new listing became available, she quickly set up a visit, and we made an offer five days after the property went on the market,, and after learning that an earlier offer was already on the table. Because of Mary Lynn's excellent tactical advice, our offer was accepted over the competing offer. Sixty days later, we closed, and in that interim, Mary Lynn became even more valuable, with ready advice on vendors and contractors we needed to retain, to turn the property into the dream beach house we wanted it to be. Even now, weeks after closing, Mary Lynn frequently contacts us, to ask if there's anything she can do on our behalf. She is a true real estate professional, and I recommend her without reservation."
"After years of vacationing in Harbor Country, we finally decided to try and find our own "piece of the sand" and become owners. We knew what we wanted and what our budget was, but we needed someone who was familiar with the market, knowledgable about the area, and more importantly, knew where the best beaches are! After reaching out to Mary Lynn and exchanging a few emails outlining our wish list, she immediately understood what we wanted and focused her efforts on finding us a unique, character-filled, affordable property close to a great beach. She was such a pleasure to work with, and we enjoyed every "hunting expedition" we went on together - she's very easy to get along with and was never impatient, even though it did take a lot of patience for the "right one" to come along. She was enthusiastic and professional throughout the whole experience, always remaining positive even when we hit a few unexpected turns during the inspection phase. She helped us negotiate the deal, resolve a couple issues in our favor, and everything worked out great in the end! We couldn't be happier with the whole experience, and we'd happily recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the southwest Michigan corridor. Thanks for everything, Mary Lynn!!"
"She is amazing and real and thoughtful and intuitive - I would recommend Mary Lynn to anyone who wants a caring honest realtor!"
