What Our Clients Are Saying

  • "Lynda represented me in the purchase and sale of multiple Bethesda & Chevy Chase homes. She staged the houses, marketed them extensively online & handled the negotiations with precision.  Every one of the transactions was a pleasure.  She’s a REAL PRO.”
    Antawn Jamison, NBA player
  • "We want to share the TREMENDOUS EXPERIENCE we had with our realtor Lynda O'Dea. We made the decision to list our home with Lynda after a thoughtful evaluation, and it turned out to be among our best decisions. Lynda is a consummate professional who clearly knows the real estate business well. Her background in marketing is a major asset to her clients, as is her tech-savvy approach, which has become essential in today's environment. Lynda's organizational abilities, attention to detail and customer service mentality impressed us throughout the sales cycle. We experienced storm damage literally on the day of our scheduled closing which could not go forward as planned. With major credit to Lynda's Herculean efforts, we were able to get the repairs completed and closed the deal. We are certain that this would have been utterly impossible for us to manage without Lynda immersed in every aspect of the negotiations and repairs. We are huge fans of Lynda O'Dea and her services and STRONGLY ENDORSE her."
    Maria & Paul Fitzpatrick
  • "Lynda O'Dea is a gem. She distinguishes herself not only for her real estate savvy (which is immediately evident) and her polish / professionalism but also for her all too rare ability to communicate subtly but directly and effectively with her own client in front of other agents and/ or buyers/ sellers. Through eye contact alone, my husband and I could successfully convey almost anything to which she reacted accordingly. She was our best advocate in every sense. Basically she's a diamond in the rough - an agent whose actually in sync with her customers - - how refreshing! After one conversation she knew better what i wanted in a house than I could ever have articulated myself. And while she most certainly is gifted enough to only work for commission and seek out the highest end jobs, she devoted herself diligently to our purchase of a more modest townhouse in Mclean without a whiff of condescension. Indeed, if it's not obvious enough we've come to adore her, getting to know her more personally and discovering beneath the polish a terrific sense of humor and truly magnetic personality. Unlike many of her peers however she never verged on being overly solicitous and always respected boundaries. She could always suss out when my husband and i were in go mode and would quickly take her cue by informing us only of property facts and figures while making herself available for questions. As for her negotiating skills? They earn her a sterling reputation among her co-workers and left even my forever skeptical hubby in her thrall. I guess we simply can't sing her praises enough and plan on enlisting her help both in selling our starter home in a few years and in purchasing a larger property!"

  • "This is my first time home buying experience and it was a great pleasure working with Lynda. She helped me purchasing a condominium. Lynda was very responsive and professional. She also was willing to share both her experience as a home owner and insights into the market as an agent. Lynda has an excellent network with the title company, a home inspector and others. She is energetic, diligent and empathetic which are huge plus when you are the first time home buyer."
    Jung Min Lee
  • "Lynda and her daughter Christina are a great team of realtors. They listened to what we said we were looking for and didn't try to talk us into something we weren't enamored with. They didn't waste our time showing us places they knew we wouldn't want. Lynda worked very hard helping us with the documents necessary for our purchase, following through with the inspection report, and keeping track of progress on the many aspects involved. Christina was with us every step of the way, spending a lot of time making sure everything was moving along properly, including taking us to the settlement office. The team even managed to arrange for our settlements for the sake of our townhome and purchase of our condo to take place on the same day. You won't find better realtors anywhere."
    Laura Dumas
  • "I'm pleased to recommend Lynda O'Dea as a real estate professional without any reservation whatsoever. Lynda listed and sold our home in a very challenging market. She was a TOP-FLIGHT PROFESSIONAL throughout the entire process, keeping us informed of everything (no matter how trivial) and making sure every detail from listing through closing were handled with the utmost care. Her communication and marketing skills are truly first-class, and she is more than capable of handling deals of any price and complexity. It's impossible to overstate Lynda's professionalism, expertise and devotion in what's usually a very personal and highly emotional setting."
    Joe Hoffman, Attorney
  • "Lynda came to us through referral by a family member, for whom she sourced a beautiful home in Maryland. She did a great job helping them through their transaction. Lynda guided us through the purchase of our new home in Adams Morgan. She did tremendous work finding a house that met our needs (even in the off-season!) and then shepherding the transaction through a 30 day closing process. Responsive and resourceful, Lynda provided great support through all steps in the process. I strongly recommend Lynda to anyone looking for a home in DC, MD or VA."

    Abigail Seldin
  • "This was our third time working with Lynda O'Dea and plan to continue doing so in the future. Lynda and her team exceeded our expectations of a real estate professional. Her team invested a tremendous amount of time working with us before going on the market, which included staging our home to maximize its appeal. Furniture and accessories were brought in from Lynda's collection making our home picture perfect. Lynda and her associates are highly responsive, continuously demonstrated market knowledge, are process orientated, and have a true ability to negotiate residential transactions. I highly recommend Lynda O'Dea."

    Marc Kantor
  • "I met Lynda O'Dea when she helped me find a home in Bethesda. Given that she is exceedingly familiar with the territory (having lived in the area with consummate knowledge of nuances helpful to prospective buyers), it's with great confidence and unequivocal conviction to say that Lynda O'Dea is 'the find' before she situates you in a home. Her subject mastery as well as diplomacy are unparalleled in a field where "broker quality" is at times scare and quantity no so. She is, most unassailably, the best in the field---as well as being a genuinely decent and kind human being with much integrity."
    Carmela Klein
  • "We successfully sold our home in Washington DC with Lynda's help in a very short time. Lynda O'Dea was EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL throughout every stage of the process, beginning with taking great photos of our property and printing a beautiful brochure and then helping me find a great moving company and temporary apartment. At the moment she is working with us to to find and purchase a new home and despite my busy schedule and high expectations ... she is doing everything to fulfill our needs. Working with Lynda is really a pleasure and the whole stress of changing homes is much more manageable having her as a professional advisor. We absolutely recommend Lynda to everybody who plans to sell or buy a property!"
    Jowita Allen, Jewelry Designer and Richard Allen, World Bank
