    To say Lynn went above and beyond to help me would be an understatement. Selling our cottage after my husband passed was a very emotional time for me. Lynn provided incredibly personalized service and guided me through every bump and major pothole in the road. She has the perfect combination of experience, kindness, and professionalism. I could not recommend her more. Where is the 11 star review? She earned it.

    We chose Lynn Vardy as our realtor in the early stages of planning for the sale of our home in Ottawa. We couldn't have made a better choice!! Lynn was fantastic to work with and provided top notch advice and services. She organized all the prep work including putting us in touch with an excellent painter. Throughout the process, we followed her strategic guidance which resulted in a quick sale in the price range we were looking for. I would highly recommend Lynn Vardy to anyone who is planning on buying or selling a home in the Ottawa/Carleton area. Thanks again, Lynn!

    Lynn Vardy is a wonderful person and a fabulous realtor, we had absolutely no issues. She took care of everything we required to sell our piece of vacant land. She showed up and walked it with us, and made herself familiar with the property. Lynn was always very courteous and professional from the start of the sale process to the very end when the property got sold. She kept in touch and kept us to date with the listing. We absolutely will tell others to use her service and will definitely retain her again in the future.

    We can’t say enough about Lynn. She is extremely knowledgeable and responsive. Her professionalism will take your house buying or selling to the next level. When negotiating for a big purchase in your life, you want her on your side…not working for the other side. Thank you Lynn for making our experience seamless.

    Lynn was an absolutely incredible realtor. I would recommend her to anyone. She went above and beyond what was to be expected and helped me throughout my sale. I was away for work the week that the house was listed and she organized everything for me, saw to all of the small and large last minute tasks that needed attention. I 100% recommend her and if I move back to the area will be seeking her support again.

    Lynn was wonderful while trying to find a house. She went above and beyond from going to houses we thought we were interested in Cobden to Almonte to Lanark. Really took her time when looking at houses to investigate any potential issues or smells. A pleasure to work with for new home buyers.

    Lynn has set our mind at ease when selling our home. She has guided us through the process. During the accepting or passing on any offers she outlined the pros and cons. We changed the selling contract to accommodate the abundance of offers where instead of scrambling with offers that expire within hours to viewing all offers up until a particular date and time. We were selling our parents home and since our schedules were different this gave us time to get together and discuss. The process was perfect for us. Much appreciated.David

    Lynn is very professional and responsive. She has helped us sell and purchase twice and both times we believe that we were getting the very best real estate agent. Lynn made sure we were in the loop, never left anything out. Lynn is family oriented and much involved in the community.

    After months, actually a couple years, I said ok, let's put my place up for sale! Lynn is so supportive, I was listing January, and I couldn't believe it , sold within a couple days! Lynn is so patient, honest and helpful getting me thru the whole process comfortably, and i left with my mind at ease for a month away planned, fall 2019, in March. Lynn always does everything to ensure all goes well with downsizing and packing also! A very special sincere salesperson, supporting and involved in local causes. She's a star? in my books!

    Lynn was an absolute pleasure to work with when selling our house. She priced it right and we got it sold very quickly. Lynn's advice along the way was always appreciated without being pushy. She always let us make our own decisions, but gave important feedback. Leading up to the closing day, Lynn continued to keep us informed and to provide helpful information for our move. I would highly recommend Lynn's services.

    We saw Lynn's signs and did some quick checks on line and haven't regretted our decision to have Lynn sell our home. Lynn is an honest and straight forward realtor that gave us the tools to sell our home fast and at fair market value. Lynn is easy to talk to (Shes from Newfoundland so she likes to talk!!). She took the time to listen and always gave us positive feedback and excellent advise. Our home was only on the market for 4 days before we accepted an offer. This fast sale was accomplished by following Lynn's sales strategy. If your looking for the right realtor for selling or buying your 1st or next family home, Corinia and I would highly recommend Lynn Vardy and her associates. Great job folks, thanks again.
