GraceChange9 Helped me sell a home
It was a pleasure working with Lynette! She is a true pro at what she does! She was meticulous throughout the whole process (reviewing contracts, assessing the value of our home, negotiating a desirable price to sell, coordinating the staging of our house, etc). She even went the extra mile to help  us sell our old furniture! She is professional, an excellent communicator, and a joy to work with! Would highly recommend working with her again!
 
Jay Hintz Helped me sell a home
When I decided to sell my home, the first hurdle I had to overcome was my asking price. My wife and I had over built our dream home compared to the other homes in the area. After interviewing some of the top Agents in Orange Co. I was frustrated and depressed. Without exception they all thought the home was great - something one would find in Newport Beach for 7 figures but not in Tustin. I insisted the house was worth much more, after all I wrote the checks for all the up-grades. Finally a good friend of mine from Church recomended Lynette Colletta. I agreed to an interview. The meeting went really well. Lynette was the ultimate professional. She loved the house and agreed the house was worth much more than the comparable homes in the area, but it was going to take a concentrated effort of specialist that she had at her disposal to get the job done. Things like a professional photographer spending over 8 hours taking photos, both day and night shots. Detailed descriptions of all the upgrades that accompanied each picture. Then assuring that the house was listed on every Internet site with photos. The full color broacher was a Master Piece. The tasteful sign in front of the house and the open house every weekend until the home was sold were frosting on the cake. But let's face it one might expect all that service from a real professional like Lynette. Like they say on TV, "but wait there's more". You would think selling the home is the hard part. That would be wrong---the maze of paper work, contracts, inspections and all the other things that must be completed properly by your agent and the buyers agent is absolutely overwhelming. This is where Lynette's experience and professionalism really shined. She mastered every obstacle and problem quickly and with a great attitude of there is no problem we can't overcome. Would I recommend Lynette----ASOLUTELY----She is the best in the business. I know------having over 30 years in SALES myself.
 
Kristin and Matthew Ryan Helped me sell a home
Lynette's professionalism sets the standard for how Realtor's should be; experienced, knowledgeable, detail-oriented, upbeat and trustworthy. Lynette has a vast knowledge of the Orange County real estate market and negotiated the inevitable ups and downs of our transaction with such grace that it felt nearly seamless. Her pricing and home preparation strategies helped us get the most money for our home, which was even more than we originally thought possible! Lynette kept us informed every step of the way, treated all participants in the process with respect and was a delight to work with. We appreciated Lynette's reliability and strong work ethic, and used her to assist us in obtaining our new home after the sale of our current home. We have referred, and will continue to refer "Lynette and her team" to our friends, family and associates. On a 5 Star scale, we would give Lynette 10 Stars if we could!
 
Greg and Susan S. Helped me sell and buy a home
Lynette has always gone the extra mile for us. Our requirements were pretty stringent and there wasn't a lot of inventory for us to look, that met our needs. Lynette was able to find a home that had n't even gone on MLS yet and within a week we were successful in entering a contract with a fairly fast close. I believe that without her market knowledge and networking, we'd still be looking. We'd heartily recommend Lynette to anyone looking for a professional agent. She'll work extremely hard to find what you're looking for.
 
Kat and Joel Haskins Helped me sell and buy a home
Lynette is truly the best. A few years ago we had a great experience with her as our buying agent so we decided to use her again this year as our selling agent. She truly is an expert and is such a pleasure to work with. She set us up with a home stager and a professional photographer to make our home look top notch. We were hoping for a quick sell and a top dollar offer and she got us both. We received a full asking price offer within a week of hitting the market. The process could not have gone smoother. Lynette was extremely responsive to our needs and really had our best interest throughout the whole process. We cannot recommend Lynette enough. She was simply awesome. If you're looking for the best agent, look no further! 
 
BFerrellii  Helped me sell a home
Lynette Colletta is a highly skilled professional who knows her business well. I was particularly impressed with how flawlessly Lynette made the transition from selling my home in Dana Point to purchasing my new home in Mission Viejo! While I was stressed about how this would work out, Lynette   calmly explained how we would seamlessly make the transition and the went about negotiating terms that were favorable to me to make this possible. Lynette skillfully marketed my Dana Point home to obtain the most market exposure and obtained an offer I was very happy to accept. Then, she turned around and again, skillfully negotiated the purchase of my new home, one I love, in this highly competitive sellers market. Lynette did this all with a friendly and helpful attitude and communicated with me each step of the way. I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND Lynette and her team anyone looking to sell and/or buy a home in Orange County!

Bob, Betty, and Beverly Bridges Helped me sell a home
We interviewed a number of realtors before hiring Lynette. She had a comprehensive marketing plan for selling our house which impressed us. She also had the considerable resources of Berkshir e Hathaway behind her. She is upbeat with a professional demeanor and was never flustered. She always kept us informed, was accessible and got back to us promptly. When dealing with a tricky situation, she would lay out the options, make her recommendation then let us decide which course to take. She has terrific people working with her. We sold the house one week after listing it. It was an all cash transaction with a two week escrow, which suited us perfectly! I will say this--- for anyone buying or selling their home --- the process can cause a lot of anxiety, tension and sleepless nights. You need someone cool, calm and experienced to smooth the way. Lynette Colletta did exactly that for our family, for which we are grateful.

We were out of state and we needed to sell our home. We had tenants to deal with as well as issues that arise from not seeing the home in five years! Lynette addressed everything and MORE!

She took the high road in every instance and carried herself with the utmost class.

Lynette Colletta - Realtor®for Berkshire Hathaway is one of the most professional sales person that I have dealt with in my 40 plus years of business.

a.schafer2008 Helped me buy a home

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Lynette for many years now. I could not have asked for an agent that was more hard-working, or dedicated to ensuring that I found I home that I would truly love. She is incredibly organized and flexible when it comes to finding times to meet/scheduling appointments and she was always in constant contact with me during the entire process. As a first-time home-buyer, I was obviously incredibly nervous about the purchase, but fortunately I had someone I trusted who was able to guide me through every step of the way. I’ve worked with other agents in the past and none of them came close to showing the sort of dedication I received from Lynette. Regardless of whether you are a buyer or seller, you can work with her knowing you’ll have a friendly, hard-working agent that will only have her client’s best interest at heart.

We live out of state, Ms. Colletta's knowledge of the housing market, taxes, hidden costs, etc. in our desired area was extremely helpful. She is an excellent communicator.

joelmartin85 Helped me buy a home

Lynette was absolutely wonderful in helping us find the perfect place. We had a rather complicated situation when it came to finances and she made everything seem easy. The whole process, from start to finish, went as smooth as it could possibly go. Lynette was extremely patient with us, and as first time buyers, she really gave us a crash course and showed us the ropes of real estate. She seemed to know what type of home we wanted better than we did. She actually found us a home that had way more than we were asking for and we could not be more pleased. She is definitely an expert in this area and we would give her 10 stars if possible. If you are looking for an agent, look no further and go with Lynette. You will not be disappointed.

and closing, her expertise was a great help.  She is a true professional.

 
Jhoyt7777 Helped me sell a home

I've worked in the real estate business all of my life, a total of 30 years as a way of earning income for myself and my family. Clearly, I know a lot of realtors, and Lynette was the one who won my business. Lynette is awesome, exceedingly professional and works hard on her clients behalf. Lynette represented us on the sale of our existing home and on the purchase of our new home. I would refer Lynette to anyone in any price range without blinking!!

 
Gina Helped me buy a home

We are so thankful to Lynette for making the home buying process easy for us. As soon as we were approved, Lynette actively researched to find the right property, and negotiated a great deal. Our needs were somewhat particular, so we were surprised she found something so quickly that was perfect for us! We were first time home buyers and had no idea how much guidance we would need until the keys were finally in our hands. What a relief to have her on our team. She is very knowledgeable and sought after in the industry and truly cares about her clients. She is also very respectful of tenant situations with making appointments and keeping to a schedule for viewings. During the time our landlords were selling our former home, we never experienced the same courtesy from any other realtor. 
Lynette wears her heart on her sleeve and regardless of how many other clients she had, her personal attention to our situation was thorough and phenomenal every step of the way. She exceeded our expectations and should the need arise we would not hesitate to call on her again!

Ccrowley20 Client, Buyer

Lynette was an amazing realtor. We worked with her over a few months and used her years of experience to get us the perfect first house. She knows the market and trends and was able to help us write an offer that couldn't be refused. She also was relentless in helping us get everything we wanted while closing.

I definitely recommend Lynette if you are buying in south orange county.

 
Jdsmartsv Client, Buyer

When meet Lynette at an open house last fall, we were in the area for a short while thinking about purchasing a home. Because of her professionalism, optimism and likeability, we decided to have Lynette show us homes. We were NOT disappointed! She steered us in the right direction, was patient with our numerous calls, emails and responded quickly. Since we only had a short time to look, we stayed in contact and continued our search from out of the Country. 

We were able to make an offer, get it accepted all because of Lynette's skills at negotiations, and close the deal. Because we were out of the Country, she even sat the inspections for us and kept us up to date on every aspect of the purchase.

Obviously we highly recommend her. Do not think we would have purchased the property from afar without her diligence. Lynette was key in purchasing our new home.

 
criley345 Client, Seller

Lynette is extremely professional and has a tremendous amount of knowledge regarding the Orange County residential market. Upon meeting her, it is evident what a genuine, kind and trustworthy individual she is.

As an out of area resident, with a vacant property to sell, it was very important for me to find a local Orange County realtor that I could trust – someone who would be committed to doing everything in their power to ensure that my property sold and that it sold at the highest possible price. Lynette served as a trusted advisor and always kept in close contact with me to ensure that I had a good grasp on the local and ever changing market dynamics in Orange County.

Lynette went above and beyond - I truly owe the successful sale of my property to her! She has tremendous work ethic, truly cares about her clients and is committed to getting them the best possible offer. I would recommend her to anyone!

Michelle Bailey Client, Buyer

Let me start off by saying that my experience working with Lynette was so exceptional I just had to post a review right away.

She was friendly, honest, and patient with me while I asked a million questions. Lynette knows the Laguna Niguel real estate market like a true expert. She listened to what I was looking for and has great taste. It was a blessing to work with her!

After Lynette helped me find the perfect home, I have recommended Lynette to all of my family and friends.

Thanks again Lynette for all your help! I truly appreciate it and love my new home!

 
Arlis C., Aliso Viejo, CA Real Estate Pro

I want to take a moment to write this note of appreciation for the effort and consideration Lynette gave to my real estate investing. In thirty years of professsional corporate experience, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of very talented and capable individuals. Many of these people are remembered and appreciated. Both on a professional and personal level, a small SELECT group have emerged as people that I will and want to remember..always. Lynette is in this SELECT group. The reasons are simple but mountains can be built of them. Lynette has character, integrity, sincerity, tireless work ethic, conscience and above all, seamless honesty. These six characteristics are almost nonexistent in today's world, yet Lynette has them all.

 
Tom James Client, Seller

"I would give Lynette Colletta FIVE STARS when it comes to marketing and listing a home for sale. Lynette has the best marketing plan possible whereby she targets all the internet buyers with fabulous photos, great descriptions and a video and audio tour that really sells the home. Lynette's marketing was so impressive that I literally had second thoughts about selling my home; she made it look so good!

Lynette not only targeted the internet buyers, she activated all the buyers real estate agents to show and sell my home. I was impressed with all the showings my home received. Lynette had broker previews and well advertised, well signed open houses that brought in many, many potential buyers. I was beyond impressed with all the traffic she created. I ended up receiving multiple good offers (and this was before the market got hot!) which made it difficult to choose just one buyer.

Not only did Lynette do an OUTSTANDING job of marketing my home for sale, she negotiated the best possible price and terms on my behalf as well. Lynette regularly communicated with me and kept me informed every step of the way. I sincerely believe that I received the highest price and best terms possible for my property.

I liked the way Lynette handled my transaction so much, that now, after renting for several months, I am using Lynette as my buyer's agent to purchase a home. I would highly recommend Lynette Colletta!"

 
giebel.greg Client, Buyer

Lynette knew exactly what we needed. She showed my wife and I communities that fit our needs. She didn't waste our time. When our offer was approved by the seller, Lynette took care of all of the details that came up. Due to Lynette's dilligence, this was the most hassle free, real estate transaction that we have been involved in.

 
Mike & Kim Lashley Client, Buyer

Lynette went above and beyond with us in finding our perfect home. Being a short sale and financing with VA made our purchase very difficult and time consuming. Lynette was always positive and cheerful and followed up as promised. It was a long 8 month process but Lynette was with us every step of the way. We would highly recommend Lynette.

 
Val Ronai Client, Buyer

Lynette is a wonderful, kind and patient agent. She really took the time to help us to find our dream house. Also she was very detailed with the paperwork what made the transaction very smooth. We liked her so much we used her service to rent our old house and it was also very easy with her in charge. I highly recommend her to any real state needs.

 

Lynette Colletta was a great pleasure to work with she was there for us all the way and as first time home buyers she was very patient and walked us though all the steps. We highly recommend her !!!!
