Lyn Sims Testimonials

  • P.S., Seller formerly of Elgin now retired said ....

    "Thank you for all your hard work that went into getting my house sold. I am relieved that the short sale is finally finished!"

  • J.F., Seller formerly of Schaumburg now living in Michigan said ....

    "After living alone with my 4 year old as a widower for the previous two years, I realized I had to relocate to be with friends and family and needed to sell the house. That's when Lyn stepped in, and then "stepped up" over and over again! When my house needed some tidying up and I wasn't able to be there to do it, Lyn found someone to get it taken care of. When my house needed emergency plumbing because the Chicago-land winter made my pipes burst not once, but TWICE, Lyn got it taken care of without flinching. When I was on the edge of foreclosure because my lender appeared to be stonewalling (actually causing multiple buyers to back out because of time lag) Lyn went above and beyond and found ways to get the process escalated and keep it on-track. Lyn seemed to have a magical ability that attracted interested buyers within days of my house entering the market as well as every time it re-entered the market (due to buyers financing problems or my lender's inaction). When my lawyers of several years suddenly ceased representing me (they chose to slink away rather doing the honorable thing and represent me -- which would have required actual EFFORT on their part), Lyn was able to get me in touch with a new lawyer and a title company who stuck with me until the deal was completed. I cannot endorse Lyn highly enough and I am truly indebted to her for all the blood, sweat, and tears she put into successfully getting my house sold."

  • R.R., Buyer in Schaumburg says ....

    "I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for helping me find and purchase a home. You made everything SO easy and smooth for me. From day one, you made it your goal to help me find what I was looking for, constantly e-mailing properties that you felt matched what I wanted (and they did!), always going out of your way to make sure I had all the information, setting up appointments on short notice and just providing the friendly service that is often hard to find these days. You were extremely patient, always smiling and willing to help in any way possible. No matter what the obstacle was you found a way around it!! You were not pushy to get the sale and always looked out for my best interest. Anytime I or anyone I talk to is in need of buying or selling a house, I'm DEFINITELY sending them to you.”

  • G.H. & J.H., Seller formerly of West Chicago now in Milton, PA

    "After going through two other agents and our home still on the market after 4 months with no offers I changed agents and listed with Lyn Sims. I couldn't have been more pleased. She offered expert advise as to how to make my home more marketable in a stagnant economy. I immediately started seeing more movement and the showings started to roll in. Just like it was suppose to be! Lyn kept in constant contact with me via phone and email, I knew at all times what was going on with my home and who was viewing it. At no time did I feel like I had to do Lyn's job for her, her professionalism and aggressive marketing approach took my worries away. There's alot of competition out there and Lyn made my home compete amongst the best. I truly thank her for it. Within a few months after listing with Lyn we sold our home and are now building a home in PA. Thank you again Lyn for helping us."

  • P.B., Seller formerly of Hoffman Estates now retired to Florida

    "Lyn was recommended to me by one of her previously very satisfied sellers. I was a first time seller and Lyn helped me very much. As has been stated in other blogs, she was very open and honest as to what was needed to be done to ready my house for the market. She listened to my ideas and I followed her advice on what had been tried before and worked. In this 'poor' selling market that we are in, she was correct almost to the exact time frame that my house would be sold by. I am moving out of state, but if I wasn't, I would be using Lyn again in the future."

  • J.R., Buyer now living in Elgin and has great hardwood floors!

    "Lyn, thank you for your dedication and hard work in making our dream of owning a home finally a reality! Buying a foreclosure was very difficult and nerve-racking (and he isn't kidding). The bank and its broker were very difficult to work with but you came through for us with your experience and dedication. My wife and I love our new home thanks to you. I would definitely recommend you if someone I know needs a good and competent real estate agent. Thanks again!"

  • E.K., formerly of Hoffman Estates and Bloomingdale, now getting sunburn in Florida!

    "Having put two homes on the market in what is possibly the worst home sales market in recent history, Lyn showed tremendous creativity in the entire sales process for my homes. She advised me prior to marketing my homes as to what would be needed to make the homes attractive for sale. Throughout the process she showed extraordinary knowledge in my target market. Lyn was very open and honest in realizing my expectations. She was always available for strategic discussions and easing my anxiety. I would highly recommend Lyn as your future Real Estate Agent. If you're willing to follow her advise, you won't be disappointed."

  • Ed Miehlke, Home Team Inspections

    "As a home inspector, I have worked with Lyn for several years now. She has always handled herself in a very professional manner with her clients. It is obvious that Lyn works hard to build a strong rapport with her clients to ensure they find the home that is right for them. It has been a pleasure to work with Lyn and I would highly recommend her as a realtor."

  • J.P., formerly in Schaumburg, now in Bartlett

    "First of all, Lyn, I want to thank you for the excellent service you provided in getting my coach home sold. You're fantastic! With the real estate market the way it is now, I'm still elated that things worked out so well. And, rest assured -- if I ever become aware of someone seeking the services of a good real estate agent, you will receive my heartiest recommendation."

  • M.K. and N.K, formerly of Hanover Park and now happily in McHenry

    "I chose Lyn because she was the neighborhood expert and I had used another out of area broker previously with no success!"
