Lynn Sanborn



what clients have to say

Mike DeDonato and Lynn Sanborn are outstanding real estate professionals. They accomplished the sale of a commercial land site for our business within a year of listing the property with them. That site had been marketed and listed with two other brokers for a number of years without success. Their generation of fine marketing materials along with hard work in seeking qualified buyers got us a fine result. Furthermore, I enjoyed working with them during the sale process—they’re nice people.

- Martin McCurry, President—McCurry Investments, Inc.

Thank you Lynn Sanborn for all you've done for me, my family/ friends and others you have successfully helped in buying and selling their homes. We all brag about you. At times we actually go back and forth about who you must like more because of the attention you give to each of our projects. You make every one of us feel like we're your only client. I don't have the heart to tell them that you love me best 😉 Thanks Lynn.

- Karen Shepard, Simply Chiropractic

My husband and I have bought and sold several pieces of property over the years. Lynn was our broker on the sale of our former home and the purchase of our present home in Kirkland. As far as I am concerned, Lynn has definitely raised the bar for real estate brokers. She was there for us every step of the way and exceeded our expectations at every turn. I can't wait to refer her to someone who needs a great agent. I know they will thank me!

- Mike Schroeder- Vice President & Safety Director at Watson Asphalt Paving Co., Inc.

Five stars for service! Lynn did a terrific job helping me sell my mother's condo. She promptly provided comps, gave me a realistic assessment of value and personally arranged for a great stager to help set the right tone! The property sold quickly and for a fair price. She told me where we could/couldn't negotiate and had good suggestions. She advised me along the way about what to expect and how long it would take. She did a lot of legwork getting questions answered, working out small details and taking care of the little touches that count. Due to her keeping everyone communicating well, the closing went smoothly and on time. A happy real estate experience!

- Tina Kondo, Seattle

I first worked with Lynn in early 2001 when we bought and sold our home. Lynn's extreme dedication to getting things right and making sure that we understood all of the issues were above exceptional. We have used Lynn 's professional services on several occasions and have recommended her to family and friends with 100% positive results. Not only has Lynn helped us professionally, she has also become a friend and trusted advisor. Lynn will do more than anyone I know in her profession to sell or assist in purchasing a new home - always. Thanks Lynn!

- Laura Bowyer- FileMaker Developer

I decided to sell my home which had not been updated in a number of years. I was concerned that I would have to invest in some significant upgrades or really discount the price to make the house marketable. Lynn did a great job of recommending improvements that would yield maximum impact while conserving time and money. With her direction, the house was fully prepared and properly staged before we hit the market. This resulted in the signing of a deal within the first week on the market. She clearly had my best interests in mind throughout the process and read the market perfectly.

- George Cluett– Regional Sales Manager

Goes the Extra Mile.

Highly Qualified.

Raised the Bar.

Lynn and her crew are awesome awesome awesome. I've bought and sold three houses, and had the best experience with her by far. Knows the market inside out, knows how to price and market, and ultimately pay attention to all the details to ensure a smooth close. I highly recommend her!

- Mitch and Jen Brandow, Fall City

Working with Lynn to purchase our home was a wonderful experience. It was my first time buying, and her guidance, reassurance and knowledge of the market helped us through a challenging process. She was a pleasure to work with throughout, and we felt so taken care of. We were both so happy with the process and the outcome!

- Ana Pinto da Silva- Senior User Experience Designer at Microsoft

I have known Lynn and her work in real estate for close to 20 years. Simply put, Lynn knows the market - -based upon that knowledge and experience, Lynn provides sage and practical advice as to strategy, approach, and execution. Lynn gave me the much needed advantage to prevail over another bidder to purchase my first home several years ago. Over the years, Lynn has consistently demonstrated a commitment to her clients to go the extra mile to get the job done. I whole-heartedly recommend her work to anyone needing someone with her skillset.

- Vanessa Lee, Seattle

I highly recommend Lynn for any of your real estate needs. She has helped us to sell a home, as well as purchase a home; and in both cases, she was highly professional and knowledgeable, as well as personable. Lynn has a unique ability to connect with others. Her warmth and personality are always present, yet she is able to be an assertive advocate for her clients. I respect her as a professional and admire her as a person. Her philosophy comes from being of service to others, which is apparent in every encounter. Lynn cares deeply about those that she interacts with; and she treats others with respect and integrity. Lynn also is very creative and uses her creative talents to help her clients to "stage" their home to showcase its assets. She has great suggestions, which are spot on and helpful. If you are looking for a real estate agent who is highly qualified, knowledgeable, professional, personable, creative, and who will work very hard to meet your needs, Lynn Sanborn is your agent.

- Alesia Regain-Hughes- Intuitive Reiki Master at Namaste Healing Arts

I've known Lynn Sanborn since 1995. My wife and I discovered her when we were looking for our first home together after we married. We were so happy with Lynn's performance, on the purchase or our first home that we didn't think twice about who our Realtor should be when we later sold that home and bought our second. Lynn took the time to listen to us and learn which features we were looking for in a home. She didn't try showing us properties that didn't fit our needs or budget or pressure us into buying properties we weren't interested in. Lynn was great in educating us on current market trends, helping us determine what our listing price should be on our old home and what a fair market value was on those homes we looked at. Her professionalism, knowledge and kind approach sold us on her. I would recommend Lynn to anyone in the Seattle/East Side looking to buy or sell a home.
