Here are a few words from recent clients:
We live in the UK and we were glad to have Lynda negotiating for us as we were bidding against three other buyers. We got the deal and are planning on spending more time in the US and Santa Barbara because of this successful transaction made possible because of Lynda's negotiating skills. She had to move quickly, even being on the phone at 3:00AM PST to reach me. We recommend her! ~ Marc M.
Lynda was proactive in helping our growing family purchase the perfect home for us in the MUS school district. I highly recommend you use her to represent you in your next real estate transaction in Santa Barbara. ~ Jordan K.
I'm a Santa Barbara County native and Lynda helped me find a home to come back to when I retire. Since I live out of town, I knew my transaction was in good hands with Lynda. ~ Donna S.

Lynda is a true professional. During the purchase transaction process and navigation through the complexities of the mortgage financing piece, it is imperative to have a teammate that is a pro. Communication, cooperation and hard work are vital to a successful on-time closing. Lynda does this better than anyone, with grace, patience and a wonderful attitude. Lynda is a true pleasure to work with and has become one of my top referral sources. ~ Jasun Carter
Lynda considers herself very fortunate to have all three of her children and three grandchildren living in our beautiful city of Santa Barbara. She would like to assist you in making all of your Santa Barbara real estate dreams become a reality.
