We sold our house in three days for the asking price. What more can I say? Lynne was responsive, helpful and honest. She had an excellent team of quality contractors to help with the inevitable fixes that were required.

Listed home, but didn't sell
We not only had Lynne sell our condo we purchased this unit from her 4 years ago. Lynne came thru the unit and gave us recommendations. We listened and the results were a closed property. Great Job!!!! We will begin the process of purchasing another unit soon and we will definitely use Lynne Bingham and Howard Hanna Realty

Lynne is, hands down, THE BEST! She has been an agent for many years in the Greater Pittsburgh area, and her experience, knowledge, and professionalism exceed all others. Lynne was always prompt to respond to emails and text messages. She answered our questions and informed us any time we felt less than confident in a tone and manner that treated us with respect and compassion. Buying a home, (our first home, in fact), is an extremely stressful and emotional time for anyone, but Lynne nurtured our anxiousness with the attitude of a friend and the patience of a mother. She was also extremely proactive and diligent when it came to negotiating details of the contract and inspection contingencies, which left both parties and agents feeling calm, agreeable, and on the same page at all times. It certainly helped what could have been an otherwise chaotic situation with less-savvy agents that Lynne is so generous with her time and so passionate about her industry and clients. It also doesn't hurt that she has ridiculously good taste and an open mind when it comes to seeing homes as canvases to make your own...She sees details in houses that most people would overlook, and it's obvious she knows what she is talking about. Some people choose to go about the home buying and selling process without agents, and I consider them to be fools knowing that there are agents like Lynne that are willing to take time from their busy schedules to find you the home that you've been dreaming of. I recommend Lynne to any type of buyer...first time buyers...growing families...young, urban professionals... She will identify your needs, and she will get you in a home you love! Less ... More

Helped me buy and sell homes
We came to Lynne and her team after trying to sell our home for a few years. We were at a total loss for what was preventing the sale of our home, and heard from a few people that if you wanted to sell, you needed to contact Lynne. We had a lot of questions for Lynne when we started working together, and she was able to answer each and every query. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable, but she returned phone calls, emails and text messages almost immediately. This had not been our experience with other Realtors! After years of sitting on the market, our home sold within a few months. Needless to say, we couldn't have been more thankful! We purchased a home using Lynne's help as well. She helped us find a home in the South Hills; she was incredibly knowledgeable about the area, and made a point of finding us a great home for a great price. She was able move through the negotiation process smoothly and effortlessly, and seemed to be able to predict exactly how the process would move forward. We couldn't have been happier with Lynne and her team. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, and we would recommend her for anyone trying to sell or buy a home in the Pittsburgh area.

Lynne is fantastic. She is hard working and reliable. She is client-focued and results-oriented. Lynne sold a SouthSide rental property for us. We live out of state and the process was flawless and fast. She and her team didn't miss a step and handled every detail for us. The closing company was impressive too. We can't thank Lynne enough. Outstanding experience!

Lynne was an absolute pleasure to work with. Her in-depth knowledge of Pittsburgh's South Side neighborhoods and the Pittsburgh real estate market in general help us to get a great deal on a new home. When dealing with difficult sellers or problems during closing, Lynne is the person that you want on your side of the table. She helped to make the process as stress free as possible while offering invaluable guidance all along the way.

I highly recommend working with Lynne for your home buying or selling needs. She's incredibly knowledgeable and did a great job negotiating some sticking points for my home purchase. Easygoing, responsive, and great to work with. Once we found the house, she took care of everything - provided me emails or met with me to go over what I needed to do, took all the guessing out of the equation, which I really needed and appreciated. I love you, Lynne!!

Lynne was excellent to work with. She was very knowledgeable about the locations I was targeting (Southside, Lawrenceville, Mt. Washington and the North Shore), and she did a great job of showing me places that met my list of requirements. She was very flexible with scheduling and helped me find the right place within a couple of weeks.

Lynne was outstanding during the entire process of our home purchase, in fact she is still working with us to make sure everything is going smoothly and we are 2 weeks post-close. She will go to bat for you and always ensure that you get a good deal, she negotiated the price of our house down in a very professional and effective manner. We saw a large amount of homes and she was very knowledgeable about the Pittsburgh area, and all neighborhoods we looked in. We looked at condos as well as stand alone homes and she had great info and insight on both types of homes. Her responsiveness was also impressive as she was even taking my calls and texts while on a trip to New York to visit her daughter. What was most impressive to me was her dedication to us. As I stated above, we closed over 2 weeks ago and she is still on the job making sure everything that was contracted to be done is getting done, She will definitely be our realtor for life and I would recommend her to anyone!!!!

After renting in the South Side for a few years, Lynne helped me and my wife find our first home. To say we were pleased with her service and professionalism would be an understatement. If you are purchasing or selling a home in the South Side your agent list should start and end with Lynne

Lynne was extremely knowledgeable of the area and process from start to finish. She had an excellent network of contractors, electricians, plumbers...etc that were available for last minute touches needed to sell my property. She was able to get more than I expected for the house I sold and now I'm wishing I had her as an agent in my new location. Very friendly, professional, and responsive....awesome agent!

We have now used Lynne for three rental properties purchased and are now in the process of another acquisition on a large commercial scale. Lynne's knowledge of the South Side area, and her real estate knowledge and connections have been invaluable in each process. The most comforting for our organization is Lynne's exceptional communication, as we are an overseas investment company and Lynne keeps us informed constantly. We would most definitely recommend Lynne.

I relocated to Pittsburgh as part of a corporate move. I needed to quickly find a home in Mt. Lebanon or Upper St. Clair within a short period of time. Lynne was recommended to me by local friends and the corporate relocation company. Lynne took the time to discuss our house needs and the local areas. After a couple days of looking at homes, Lynne helped us to negotiate a price on a great home. Lynne is a terrific business woman and very responsive. I would highly recommend Lynne as a buyer?s broker. Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
We were interested in a piece of property adjacent to our home. It initially appeared to us as a good deal. Lynne helped us get in touch with a surveyor and a funding agent. She was very helpful in asking us pertinent questions on aspects of the deal we hadn't considered. What we very much appreciated was the fact that it wasn't a question of making sure we bought the property (which would have been good for her pocketbook), but of insuring we did what was right for us. In the end, we decided that we should not pursue the acquisition of the property for the right reasons. We definitely recommend Lynne to any prospective clients. She is ethical, takes her clients' needs and situation into consideration. She is not all about closing a deal if it isn't good for the client. Less ... More

I have been investing in Real Estate for nearly 9 years. In the past, I typically purchased most of my properties behind the scenes, "off the market." This was up and until I met Lynne Bingham. I've since been able to focus much more on improving my portfolio rather than expanding it as Lynne has taken over that responsibility for me with tremendous success. She has been able to bring me some amazing deals that no other Real Estate Agent before her could. Lynne is extremely accessible and always ready to respond to my every needs. Whenever she has represented me she has always fought to get me the best deal with the best terms, even when it has meant less of a commission for her. There is so much more to Lynn than the regular Real Estate Agent. Regardless of the fact that she has countless listings, I never once felt as though I wasn't her #1 Client. If you're looking for investment properties, or any type of property for that matter, you will save tremendous headaches and more importantly, financial loss by working with anyone else! Thank you Lynn for all you have done for me. I look forward to many more deals with you. Less ... More

Lynne did a thorough job evaluating our property and helping us understand the local market. She explained to us the critical information we needed to prepare the home for sale without getting bogged down in minor details. Had pictures taken professionally and posted to real estate websites very quickly. Got our house sold in a very reasonable time in a tough market. Highly recommended.

We contacted Lynne in March of 2011 just to discuss the fact that we would be moving in the summer of 2012 and to get her advice on what we should do to make our home more appealing to potential buyers. She gave honest and direct advice free of charge. When we contacted her almost 1 year later, all I did was say my last name and she said, "oh yes, you live on 14th street in the southside." HOW did she remember that?! We obviously chose her as our agent and she had our house sold for 92% of the asking price within 2 months. We didn't have to do anything, Lynne took care of all of the paperwork and has been proactive to make sure there are no lingering reimbursments that we would have to hunt down post-sell. We are very busy professionals with a 5 mo baby and Lynne has been awesome throughout the process. She is available via text, email, or phone and responds within minutes if not immediately. She is the best agent with whom we have ever worked! Less ... More

We are very pleased to recommend Lynne Bingham for your realty needs. When we began to plan for the move to Pittsburgh, we did some research on the web about places to live in Pittsburgh. Following the online search, we received a few emails back from various Pittsburgh realtors including Lynne Bingham. Lynne's emails were clearly the best and were indicative of her excellent service. Lynne emailed back to us in a manner which was friendly, courteous, prompt, intelligent and organized. Our positive first impression about Lynne was true and she has been enormously helpful, patient and hardworking throughout the home-buying process. Because of the very positive experience we have had purchasing a home in Pittsburgh, we wholeheartedly recommend Lynne Bingham. Less ... More

Lynne was very straightforward and very knowledgeable about South Side and the entire home buying process. She was very responsive and sincerely cared about meeting my needs. She also has a great network of professionals including closing agents, house inspectors, and electricians that she recommends which do a great job at a great price. I would definitely recommend Lynne and would use her again.

I contacted Lynne after a previous agent was unsuccessful at selling my house over several months. The main reason I chose Lynne was because of her expertise and market knowledge in the South Side neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Within 1 week of signing the listing agreement Lynne delivered an offer for my house. Not only was I overwhelmingly happy with her responsiveness and ability to generate an offer, but she exceeded my expectations in negotiating the offer for more than my list price. Lynne was extremely professional, easy to deal with and, most importantly, sold my house quickly. I would recommend Lynne to anyone thinking of listing their house in the South Side neighborhood.

We used Lynne Bingham to sell our house, sell my mother's condo, and buy our new house. She went above and beyond in each case. No task was too small when it came to accomodating my picky taste when we were looking and her aggressive marketing, and knowledge of all marketing avenues, physical and web, put her well above any other agent we'd worked with in the past. I would never use anyone else.

Lynne helped us to sell our current home and to buy a new home in about sixty days. She is the one to trust when selling a home on the South Side. (She was the agent who initailly sold us the home seven years ago!) She worked tirelessly on our behalf and had a team of experienced people to jump in and assist us with anything we needed. Lynne is experienced, efficient, enthusiastic, and a true professional. We recommend her without hesitation.
