We worked with Lynn Brosnahan to find and purchase a house in spring 2017. We were relocating to Rhode Island and needed a local relator. We chose Lynn because she had the Military Relocation Professional credential (we intended to utilize the VA home loan program), she seemed to operate in a fairly wide area (for RI), and she had good reviews on Zillow.
We were first time homebuyers on a fairly tight schedule who were relocating to an area with a fast-moving market. Not an ideal situation. But Lynn made it happen for us, guiding us through the process with assurance.
Lynn was flexible and accommodating. She was able to clear a whole weekend to show us properties from Woonsocket to South Kingston. She set up showings for two properties we'd found online that she didn't necessarily think were the best options for us, but that we really felt like we needed to see to decide for ourselves. She also arranged for colleagues to take us to two additional properties on the morning we were leaving (when she had preexisting appointments).
She listened to our wants and needs and did not show us properties that we wouldn't actually consider buying (staying both within our price range and off our we-definitely-don't-want-x list). Lynn provided input on properties, but was never pushy. Her focus always seemed to be on us and our needs and she proved to be a calming presence through the days back-to-back showings.
Lynn's knowledge and experience was particularly helpful during the offer process. She saved us money by encouraging us to go in with a lower starting offer that we would have otherwise.
