What Lynn's Clients Say
Lynn handled the sale of our home without an issue. We were lucky enough to have a buyer come along, with a firm offer, quickly. All aspects of the sale went off without any issues. Lynn kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend Lynn to anyone buying or selling a home. She is on top of her game!
It was an absolute pleasure having Lynn Pufpaf as my buyer's agent. We got off to a wonderful start when Lynn returned my call (on New Year's Eve!) to set up an initial appointment; she was always so good about making herself available and working around my schedule. Lynn helped guide me to a wide range of places within my criteria, and she helped me feel like I had an excellent sense of the market by the time I put in an offer. Lynn gamely endured me bringing along friends, girlfriends, kids, and she always had insightful questions and thought-provoking comments about the places we viewed. Lynn went above and beyond the call of duty, be it picking me up from my apartment or speaking several times with my parents on the telephone. Her wonderful good humor, rich knowledge of real estate, and ability to translate that knowledge into terms I could understand made my first condo purchase so much easier and less anxious than I could have imagined. All of the referrals she provided me (inspector, lawyer) were on-the-mark and helped me end up with with an excellent team for my purchase. I would certainly recommend Lynn to anyone in the market. I couldn't have asked for a better agent
Great! I can't possibly say enough about Lynn. I worked with her for almost a year looking at single family homes, then condos, short sales. She never pushed me to make a decision or even walked away when I lost my job! Lynn guided me through an arduous short sale process with optimism and perseverence. She was always asking questions of both myself and the seller and was great at pointing out things I may have missed.<br/><br/>Even when I had a deal for a single family home fall through due to a loan falling through, Lynn still tried to help me negotiate a purchase for the home. When that didn't work and the seller didn't want to give me my earnest money back, Lynn was persistently at their door and on the phone repeatedly working on my behalf until they returned my money.<br/><br/>I will continue to recommend her and will be calling her in the future for my own real estate needs.<br/><br/>Thanks Lynn!
My husband and I had an enjoyable time working with Lynn. She was compassionate, knowledgable, and put us at ease during this stressful and emotional time.<br/><br/>She was able to answer our questions on a timely matter, and she is very up to date on technology which really helps.<br/><br/>When it came time for negotiating, she helped us out tremendously, and ended up getting the house of our dreams!
We have bought and sold two houses with Lynn. I can say without reservation that she is an extraordinarily competent agent in every respect. Her understanding of the market is always up to date, her knowledge about properties (what makes for a well-built home, what indicates a potential problem), and her familiarity with every step of the process -- all of this and more makes it so easy to recommend her for listing or buying property.
In addition, Lynn is a personable, patient and consistently helpful person. She anticipates potential issues, answers questions clearly (and researches those things that may be unclear), and goes out of her way to make the process as painless as possible. With our most recent home sale, we were already out of town when Lynn listed and sold our home. With us gone, Lynn had to go above and beyond the ordinary work of a realtor -- providing access for tradespersons, making sure the house looked nice for showings, and much more. She makes the often-stressful process of buying or selling a home as painless as is possible, and I would not hesitate to call upon her again in the future. I have referred her to friends and colleagues in the past, and will continue to do so in the future.
Lynne is a pro! We bought with her and we called her back now that we're ready to sell. She works hard for her clients and gives great advice. We trust her completely!
Lynn Pufpaf had represented us in selling our single-family home. She helped us through-out the process, from accepting offers and closing the deal. We are pleased with Lynn and her expertise and we recommend her to everyone.
Lynn helped in the search for our new house and in the sale of our existing house. She was always there to answer questions and give her opinion when we asked.
Our search took several months to find the perfect new home to fit our family's needs. During that time, Lynn was always accessible by phone/text to make appointments for us or accompany on a visit. She was really helpful to have along especially on 2nd appointments. With her vast experience she was able to point out details that we might have overlooked.
When it was time to put our existing house on the market, Lynn made suggestions on how to get the house ready for showings. She has several different marketing techniques in addition to having open houses.
If you're looking for a real estate agent that gets results, call Lynn Pufpaf. From her initial visit to the property to her suggestions on staging furnishings and recommendations on things to do to increase the value of the property and appeal to the prospective purchaser, Lynn is a 10+. She is hands-on; always available to answer your questions and help you through the process of selling your property with confidence.
Lynn helped steer me in the right direction to buy my first home. When we were looking at a home she'd point out positives and negatives that I would have never noticed on my own. Once I decided on a home to buy, she laid out all the steps clearly for me even down to talking to my mortgage broker and attorney.
Lynn was one of three R/E agents we interviewed. I found her to be very understanding of our location, and extremely responsive. Our selling price ultimately came in at approximately 98% of the second agent and 110% of the third agent. i feel that Lynn did an excellent job in pricing our home in a very difficult market. She also was professional and worked very well with the rest of my family when I was away. I would highly recommend Lynn and should the need arise would gladly make her my agent in any other Real Estate deals.
Lynn Pufpaf was easy to work with, accommodating, and knowledgeable. I appreciated her sensitivity in handling my situation and her recommendations. She worked expertly in selling the property quickly for a fair price.
I hired Lynn in March 2015 to sell my house based on the recommendations of two neighbors. She was great! At our initial appointment, she gave me some practical suggestions on how to make the house more attractive. She also had a professional photographer take photos of the house, which were superior to my photos and showed the house in the best favorable light. She listed the house on a Friday afternoon, and we had an offer a few hours later! I was ecstatic! She also kept me informed throughout the process as the buyer went through the house inspection process, and gave me advice as I prepared various documents for my attorney. She always returned my calls and was very responsive to whatever I needed. She was also very honest and down-to-earth, which I also appreciated. All in all, I couldn't have asked for a more positive experience. When I talked to friends and colleagues about their experience in selling a home, I realized how fortunate I was to have everything go through so flawlessly. I would highly recommend Lynn if you are looking to buy or sell.
Lynn is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Chicago. She is also honest and realistic, helping me stage and price my home for sale reasonably. I felt like I had an advantage because I was working with Lynn on the sale of my condo. She was there for me every step of the way, until closing. I would highly recommend Lynn Pufpaf for anyone looking to sell their condo in Chicago.
After the house languished on the market for 6 months with absolutely zero interest from the buying public, we contacted Lynn. We started with her in September, and the house was sold by December. She is very knowledgeable about the market and quite personable. Highly recommended!
Helped prepare property for sale with lists of tradesmen available to get ready for listing. Property sold quickly and Lynn made sure all necessary documents were prepared and ready for a smooth closing.
I chose Lynn Pufpaf in part because of her sense of humor, and worked with her to find a condominium unit that was right for me. She was very easy to work with, willing to chase down all listings that looked even vaguely suitable, and occasionally pointed out some features I might have missed. Thank you, Lynn.
My wife and I are first time home buyers, and at that, first time home buyers in Chicago. We called Baird Warner because they were on a list of realtors we were looking at. Lynn Pufpaf was the agent who picked up, and we're glad she did. She's got an amazing personality and sense of humor, which is seriously welcome after the bajillionth property of the day. She's been bluntly honest- during the first phone call, I was meandering in questions when she finally picked up that I knew zilcho about houses, she just said "Hold on there champ- just grab a beer and I'll fill you in." That pretty much sums her up. You WILL get someone who knows the area and history, someone who WILL give you an honest opinion, and someone who WILL respond back in a timely manner. My wife and I are vets- punctuality is serious to us, and Lynn keeps up.
She represents Baird Warner well; it was our honor to work with her.
She was a pleasure to work with. she is very knowledgeable, trustworthy and skillful. She is definitely committed to exceptional service. Lynn Pufpaf took what could have been a very difficult and awkward process and held our hands through the entire thing. I am grateful that the decision was made to go with Lynn Pufpaf and would highly recommend her.
Easy to work with her and mostly reliable agent among the best in town. She also help speed up the sale process within days instead of months. The deal went through a lot faster than I had expected. I would highly recommend her service to any one who would like to sell/purchase a property at any time.
I'm so thankful we were able to find such a good, honest, and helpful real estate agent. Lynn was always available to take a call or email. She was always responsive to our questions and concerns. And, she helped us find a perfect house for our family, in a great neighborhood!
Lynn was very responsive and very respectful to our tenants in showing their apartments. She always looked out for our best interest and gave us great advice. I would highly recommend her. She is the best!
Lynn was recommended to me by friends. She was great. Always available and listened to help find what I was looking for. She is very knowledgeable and pointed out things I would have never thought about. She's great to work with and I highly recommend her!
Lynn is a highly motivated broker who goes the extra mile both in allotting time for visiting properties and the support work associated with buying property.
I will definitely use her when the next opportunity arises.
Lynn was an incredible help to us. She was incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and professional. She made the entire process seamless and helped us find an incredible house!
Lynn Pufpaf is a terrific realtor. She knows the Northwest Side like no one else and worked tirelessly to sell my home. If you want to sell your home call Lynn TODAY! You won't be sorry
We have used Lynn to sell a condo and purchase a single family home, both in Chicago. She helped make the process of each very seamless. The purchase ended up turning into quite the fiasco- due to the seller's agent. She kept us levelheaded and facilitated an unexpectedly lengthy process. Lynn is always quick to respond to any queries. Vast knowledge base and extremely trustworthy. Highly recommended!
Lynn was very helpful during every phase of the sale of my home. She gave me guidance, calmed my fears, and most importantly, got the job done!
Always pleasant and professional.
We had moved to Wisconsin and hired Lynn to sell a condo for us in Chicago. She knew the neighborhood very well and our target demographic. She was extremely helpful during the process of updating the unit. There were many times we couldn't be in Chicago to receive deliveries or let in contractors and she took care of things. She went above and beyond helping get the unit ready to market and in helping close the sale.
I recently worked with Lynn to sell my condo in Chicago. She did a phenomenal job! We went from listing the condo to selling it for a full price offer within 45 days! Lynn took care of everything for me since I live about 50 miles away - managed the photographers to post great pictures, she personally showed the unit to each potential buyer (she didn't just rely on the buyer's agent), and she attended all the activities (buyer's inspection, closing, etc). She is very familiar with the Northwest side of Chicago and if I had another real estate transaction to do in Chicago, I would engage Lynn in a heartbeat.
Lynn really took ownership of our homebuying experience. Lynn was aggressive and and honest during our search. Lynn was very personable and kind all the way through and after closing. She taught us what questions to ask and where to look when inspecting a house. She never missed an opportunity to ask the most important questions when another realtor was showing a house. I would definitely recommend Lynn in the future and I will go with Lynn again when I'm ready to buy again.
I had to plan on moving out from an apartment because the owner of the building was suddenly selling, so I finally ventured into the possibility of buying a place. I had an idea of what I wanted, but the reality is always a little different from what you dream. For example, what Zillow suggested were rates I could get for a mortgage were...optimistic, to say the least. Lynn helped keep me in an appropriate range (I even ended up getting a unit almost $30K under what I planned on) and worked a ton to ensure the deal was good for me. In fact, we nearly closed on one place that she recommended, and after they had already accepted my offer, she did some independent homework and found out the washer-dryer combo in the unit was specifically forbidden by the homeowner's association. We asked the owners to find a way to make an exception, they essentially refused to even try, and we moved right along to another unit. Frankly, the unit I ended up with is nicer in just about every way and cheaper. And when we first came to see the unit I live in now, their agent was there, but they didn't have the key. They basically took the unit off of the listing and Lynn helped ensure I got to see it first when the key came in, helped me throughout the inspection process, checked in months later, and even sent a nice gift card to help with some home improvement stuff. She knows what she's doing. You'll still have to do your homework on prospective units and all that--you should obviously not expect a place on a silver platter--but her knowledge of the area and houses will do you wonders.
Lynn is amazing! I really felt that she looked out for me - providing much needed guidance, responding promptly and with patience to any questions I had, was incredibly swift to schedule viewings, and with the addition of her own superb knowledge, had the connections in the industry that allowed the process to go so smoothly I was able to focus on the excitement of buying a new home and not stress. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have had Lynn as my realtor for my first home buying experience!
Lynn is a VERY experienced sales agent that I highly recommend. She keeps in touch with her clients like they are neighbors. She is very easy to get a hold of and has the knowledge to sell you home etc. I thought it was going to take forever to sell my home. Lynn pointed out a few things that needed improvements on within the house to make the house more appealing. Within five months, the house was sold! Was I suprised how fast she sold my home.
Can't say enough about Lynn and her experience except, WOW!!
Everything will go smooth when using Lynn to sell your property.
Lynn was invaluable with helping us sell our parent home. It was a very emotional time but Lynn was with us at every step. The turnaround time from listing to sale was relatively quick. She guided us through the listing price process and was spot on with the eventual selling price.
Smart, very friendly and very professional. She knows the local market.
I would highly recommend Lynn.
As a first time seller, Lynn was extremely helpful explaining how the process works and what to expect. We discussed what my needs were and what I wanted to do and what the market was doing at the time. She used her experience and expertise to help me develop a plan to sell the house including all the details of a moving time line and connecting with a real estate attorney, etc. She certainly made this experience exceed my expectations and I am delighted with the results.
Having Lynn as our realtor was like having a family member help us sell our house of 30 years. There were many times she held my hand during the procedure. Lynn also helped us find a rental apartment which we love. So she goes the extra mile to help her clients. Lynn was very knowledgeable about our West Ridge neighborhood which helped considerably. She made the difficult time of leaving our home more manageable. My husband and I highly recommend Lynn Pufpaf! She really knows her business and highly respects her clients.
Lynn is wonderful to work with. Her expertise and knowledge of our neighborhood (NW side) made us feel comfortable throughout our decision-making process. Not only did she steer us in the right direction to purchase our home, she was there for us 17 years later when we decided to sell. Highly recommended!
Lynn was highly recommended by three other couples that I am friends with who all bought their homes with Lynn. Lynn was patient, insightful, thorough and she brought with her a team of trustworthy players in the field. From start to finish, Lynn made me feel comfortable about where I was living and met my budget. Even though I closed almost two months ago, Lynn still checks in to see how things are coming along. Do yourself a favor and chose Lynn, you won't regret it.
Lynn listed our two flat rental property in Rogers Park and she sold in the first week. The whole process was explained clearly by her and she did a very accurate market value for us too.
The whole process was very smooth and she helped us in the whole process.
We would highly recommenced her professional experience services.
Lynn is a Chicago-raised realtor who listens to her clients and provides valuable insight/feedback to navigate sales. I've used Lynn's services twice now, and would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a house.
Lynn is knowledgeable about the whole process, down to earth and had some good advice for us. She gave us good advice about possible future repairs, to pay attention to assessments rules and what it covers and what is our responsibility. Would recommend her and use her again
We just moved into our first home a few months ago and we have so much gratitude for Lynn. We started the process with her on a whim showing about 10 months prior. In that time, we looked EVERYWHERE - seriously. Even through a global pandemic, this amazing woman was with us every step of the way. It was a long process but Lynn was patient with us. She never rushed us to make a move and she quickly learned our style, taste, and neighborhood preferences.
From the start, Lynn genuinely took the time to get to know us and we trusted her right away. We saw some great homes (and some weird ones, too); but we always felt so safe and protected with Lynn. She is an expert in the real estate world. I'm not kidding when I say she saw stuff that we would have been totally blind to or we wouldn't have found out until home inspection. In retrospect, I don't know what we would have done without her.
In the winter we had a sudden change of heart and didn't want to deal with the budget restrictions (and sometimes lack of-yard) that the city was giving to us. Instead of convincing us to settle, Lynn engaged us on an awesome phone conversation wand we decided to look in the suburbs.
Lynn was extremely flexible and was totally willing to work with us wherever... so we made our way out to Brookfield! Long story short, our first offer didn't work out although Lynn fought hard for us. Realistically, it was the best thing that could have ever happened. Although the house would have been fine, we probably would have outgrown it quickly and little did we know what was waiting for us on the horizon...
While we were feeling defeated, Lynn found us a beautiful home in a close by neighborhood that wasn't even up on the market yet. We saw it the next day; it was incredible - and again, we immediately made an offer. Lynn worked diligently with us and our attorney to make the deal work. The global pandemic and some giant maple trees over the property definitely threatened the deal but somehow Lynn just kept on fighting for us. And then before we knew it, we were closing in April!
Moving out here was the best decision we ever made. We are SO so so happy and would never look back. We got an amazing brick house with a finished basement and a beautiful small yard for the dogs. It was everything we asked for on our wish list. We couldn't be more happy! Thanks Lynn!
I cannot thank Lynn Pufpaf enough for helping me to list my property and from the very start everything was so efficient and ran smoothly. I were updated daily on the progress of sale. Great services !
We were selling our place and researched and met with 3 agents and Lynn was by far the best and we are so happy we went with her. She is very personable and joy to work with, but most importantly highly effective. She suggested we list the unit for at least $10,000 more than the other agents had advised. She had a lot of research on comparable sales in the area to back up her recommendation. She was so knowledgable with sound advice on how to stage the unit with minimal expense so it would show better. She was there at each step of the process and very good at communication. She sold the place very quickly and at the higher price. If you are buying or selling, definitely talk to Lynn. You will not be disappointed.
Not enough could be said about how great Lynn was through the entire process. Even before purchasing my condo, she was sending me recommendations based on the information that I gave her. When I finally picked a place that I liked, she was there every step of the way. She answered questions as quickly as possible. She let me see the place as needed and when requested. This is a person that you want helping you with your future home.
