Paul Zimmerman

“I am writing to give Lynda O’Dea my highest recommendation. My decision to move from New York City to downtown Bethesda was somewhat complicated and required the expertise of highly-experienced agent. Lynda’s knowledge of the market and her relationships in the community, as well as her commitment and tenacity, served me well in this transition. Lynda is a true professional, and I will be forever grateful for her kindness, patience and understanding.”

Ann Yench

“Lynda gently ushered us through the somewhat painful process of acting on a decision to “downsize”, as we prepared to buy the condo that will become our home. She was always cheerful and responsive, never pushy or impatient. Lynda’s sense of timing and strategy helped us to out-distance other prospective buyers in a very competitive sellers’ market.”

Ray & Maria Turner

“I was very impressed with Lynda, she made the process easy for me on all fronts. She never pressured, she guided toward the right outcomes. She really knew where the right deal could be struck for both parties and helped make it happen. You couldn’t ask for more in an agent, I highly recommend her.”

Greg Soueid

“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

“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

“We are so appreciative of the expertise, professionalism and hard work you brought to the experience of buying our condo and then selling our house. With your guidance we achieved really good results on both the buying and selling ends! You and Christina are a great team. Please let us know if you are in the neighborhood – we would love to have you stop by!”


Jill and Rick Robinson

“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

“I have successfully closed more than $2.5 million in deals with Lynda who is a SUPERSTAR AGENT. She knows the DC area market inside and out; and with that, she also knows the market players (the bankers, mortgage brokers, and title companies). I personally benefitted from Lynda’s outstanding reputation and professionalism. All my deals went smoothly and closed without a hitch. What more could you ask?”

John Karasek, International Tax Attorney

“Lynda … thank you so much for all you did to help us find our new home. Moving from out of state was daunting at first but you made us FEEL AT EASE every step of the way. Once we settled on our ideal Bethesda neighborhood, your work behind the scenes to locate the perfect home for us before it officially came on the market no less, made all the difference! You’re guidance and expertise through the contract and settlement processes also proved invaluable. We are thrilled with our new home and have you and your expertise to thank!”

Kathryn Powell, Management Consultant

“Lynda O’Dea is the MOST COMPETENT AND PLEASANT real estate agent I have ever worked with. Lynda has exceeded the skills of the many agents I have worked with over the years by many orders of magnitude. Lynda’s demeanor was warm and welcoming from the first moment we met, and was consistently maintained throughout the entire process. She was highly astute in assessing my needs, taste in residence, associated neighborhood, budgetary constraints, and location with respect to proximity of work. She prepared in advance of our initial meeting a portfolio of properties which closely approximated my vision of the ideal residence. She efficiently drove us to each of the properties and insightfully pointed out key relevant features of each property. She also took us on a tour of each of the neighborhoods and established a clear picture of the resulting lifestyle associated with each residence. The result of this astuteness, advanced preparation, efficiency and care was the acquisition of my new home which incorporated everything I was looking for.”

Dr. Fred Senatore, Clinical Scientist

Lynda is a very effective real estate agent that uses her skills and knowledge to the benefit of her clients. She was our agent during the process of purchasing of our home and she DID AN AMAZING JOB. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND HER!

Julian Cristia, Senior Economist at Inter-American Development Bank

“If anyone ever needs a phenomenal REAL ESTATE GURU to sell their home, you need not look any further than Lynda —she is amazing!!! The best I’ve ever worked with by far. She managed every detail with ease and grace, then sold my house in just 12 days! Not only that, she saved me from commuting back and forth by handling the necessary matters that are always involved in closing a house. In this market, making it to closing can be close to a miracle. Plus, Lynda was absolutely delightful to work with!”

Sondra Goad, CEO & Business Owner

I think it was fate that Lynda O’Dea and my husband and I were matched to pursue our quest for a new townhouse. It all began with a internet search for “Bethesda Real Estate” and the rest was a whirlwind. Her website was well designed and helped me narrow down my interests. I was a bit apprehensive that such a successful real estate agent would have the time or interest for someone looking for a townhouse in the Bethesda area but I was surprisingly wrong. She was extremely organized, communicative and energetic. She took the time to understand our needs and actually predicted what home we would choose and she was right! We love our new home and appreciate the job she did for us. This was also a great learning experience for us and she held our hand along the way. What a wonderful person and agent, we highly recommend her with no hesitation!

Noel Savasman, IT Professional

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend the real estate services of Lynda O’Dea and her associate Christina. They did an ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE job helping with the purchase of my new home. Our relationship began when I first contacted Lynda through her website and they started showing me properties. Within a matter of days, they found exactly what I was looking for in a home … and then managed all the steps from the first offer all the way through to settlement. There were several challenges along the way, some significant, that they handled with ease. The best part was that they understood my busy schedule and made sure I had minimal involvement in the painstaking details of the transaction. It was a very smooth process and I am thrilled to be in my new home!

Dr. Alex Shkylar, General &Cosmetic Dentist

I was planning to buy a condominium in Bethesda until Lynda showed me the townhome in downtown Bethesda that I ended up buying. It was one of the BEST DECISIONS I have ever made. Lynda then sold my house in 3 days in a challenging market! Needless to say, I was very pleased with her service.

Laurene Gallo, Corporate Executive

“After finding Lynda through her terrific website, she helped us sell my elderly mother’s property in Bethesda. It was a challenging project for a variety of reasons, but Lynda went to work using her extensive network of industry contacts and succeeded in finding us a builder-developer that specialized in building new homes in such neighborhoods. This was a project that required creativity, energy and perseverance. Lynda SURPRISED OUR EXPECTATIONS IN EVERY RESPECT – the fit of the solution, the communications with the family, the timing, and the economics. Plus the house went under contract on the first day it was listed! And Lynda is such a charming person, she also managed to make it a delightful experience! We feel very fortunate to have found such a capable real estate professional to work with us.”

Wes Carson, President, Healthcare Company

It is not often that I take the time to write a referral but my experience with Lynda O’Dea was NOTHING LESS THAN SUPERB from the moment I met her to the time that we closed on both my sale and purchase.

My experience began with Lynda when I was looking on the internet for homes in Potomac and discovered her website. The site was so incredibly easy to use that I immediately called her, set up a viewing and told her she had my business based on the website alone. I do work in technology so I understand good web design. However this was just the beginning of my amazement.We met at a house which I did not much care for, so Lynda began asking me questions about what I was looking for in a home as well as volunteered to come see my newly renovated townhome to get a better idea of what she should be looking for. It was not a week later that she found what I can only describe as my dream home on steroids. She stayed within the price (was a great negotiator) and found everything I wanted in a home. During the negotiations for the purchase, the seller’s real estate agent said no less than 3 or 4 times, “you have a really great agent, the best I have seen, no detail goes un-discussed”. I was floored by the details she picked up.Further, all of the steps of the purchase including inspection, visits, documents (web site again!) were like a symphony with Lynda as the experienced conductor. There were quite literally no problems at all.

Now repeat the above paragraph for the sale of my townhome, which she sold in 3 weeks in the worst real estate market in history. Plus, aside from being an extraordinary agent, she is extraordinarily pleasant to be around.

Earl Furfine, CEO of IT Company

I CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT LYNDA and her talented team. Her advice and support made the purchase process easy and enjoyable. She thought of every detail and made sure we got everything we wanted and more! I can’t imagine having gone through it with anyone else. Thank you Lynda and Chris for everything … we would have been lost without you!
