Buying and selling your house is stressful at the best of times and having a good realtor makes a huge difference. Over the years we’ve been involved in a fair number of real estate transactions and never worked with anyone who has made the process as pleasant and seamless as Lynn Hayes. Not only was she a calming presence in stressful times but we were always well informed about where things stood and Lynn’s strategy going forward. Working with Lynn we knew things were being taken care of so we could focus on planning/packing/moving. We could not possibly have been more pleased and would not hesitate to recommend Lynn to anyone.

We loved working with Dene. We had to buy our house quickly, and she made that possible. In addition our old house sold in a week. I now recommend her whenever someone is looking for an agent. We loved and appreciated Alexis too. Thanks!

Alexis Rudolph was my realtor this spring when I was looking for and bought a town home in Fearrington Village. As a former realtor myself I appreciated the professional job she did. Alexis does her homework. I was out of state when we negotiated the offer as well as the inspection, repairs and closing. This meant Alexis had to be there for for all of that which required her to make several site visits and numerous follow up calls to the listing agent and she was very conscientious with all of that to be sure that closing went smoothly. In summary, Alexis was personable, competent and responsive…all qualities which make for a realtor that I can certainly recommend.
When Lynn and my wife could not find an existing home to meet our needs, we decided to build a new house and I figured I didn’t need a realtor any more. I couldn’t have been more wrong! Lynn brought a wealth of experience and knowledge to our new home building process that saved me a lot of money and heartache. From the contract details, to dealing with our lender and most importantly in dealing with the custom builder to get everything done right and on time. Lynn took care of things we had never even dreamt of. Today—-we’re moved in to our dream home and the whole process was made better by having an experienced realtor looking out for our best interests.

Dene was the very best agent we could have asked for. She was resolute in ensuring that our wishes be met. After the several weeks of interaction and very prompt communication we began to consider her one of our own friends. We recall a couple of occasions when she wasn’t afraid to be assertive on our behalf to get us a lower price or have the seller repair an item. She was absolutely delightful. We couldn’t be happier in our new home!

Alexis was great, great, great. She is such a clearly conscientious person, it’s obvious from the get-go that she’s going to do everything right. She was available when I needed her, and basically told me everything to do because I had no clue. I will definitely recommend her to anyone.

I want to thank you for all your efforts in the sale of my unique house. I had earlier tried to use a larger real estate company, thinking they would have a stronger marketing presence but my house failed to sell. Instead, your skill in marketing and internet presence proved to be a better way to go and was enhanced by your staging of an empty house. Long distance negotiation and closing was remarkably smooth. Your pricing strategy worked and so did your handling of multiple offers which brought me full price! Lynn Hayes has the magic touch.

Dene Lee just recently sold our home of 22 years for us. Her knowledge of the market and attention to detail is outstanding! She told us what we had to do to get the house ready to sell and how to “stage” it. The house sold in 25 days! Dene is a dedicated real estate professional that we would highly recommend to anyone who wants to buy or sell a house.

Lynn is much more than a real estate agent. She is, as she occasionally says, a real estate counselor. We were very impressed at how well she listened to us and took the time to tailor her efforts to our needs and wants. She was also flexible enough to modify her efforts as we refined our desires.
“Lynn never wasted our time and we never felt that we were being pushed into something we were not comfortable with. In fact Lynn never really sold us anything. She simply continued to work with us until we found the right home, the one we were entirely pleased with.
“We were also impressed at how knowledgeable and helpful Lynn was. She seemed to know of someone to solve every problem, no matter how bizarre or close to the closing. She also seemed to have an answer to every problem. However, here again, Lynn showed her consulting skills. Never once did she push a course of action on us. No matter how pressing the issue was or how panicked we were, she would always begin with her classic “if it were me …” We learned to respect that phrase and the sage wisdom that followed.
“Lynn’s even-tempered humor and warmth never failed to calm the situation and soothe the parties involved. Coupled with her vast experience, it always guided us to a mutually beneficial conclusion. Lynn was so good at negotiation that I honestly feel that she has a future as an international peace negotiator. Even the complexities of the Middle East conflict would be no match for her skills.
“Finally, we continue to be impressed that Lynn keeps contact with us after we moved in, making sure we are okay and enjoy our home. We have no hesitation at all recommending Lynn to our friends because Lynn has proven that she is one of them.
