Get to know Lynn BEHLENDORF

I am a consummate professional who truly cares about helping people achieve their goals as it relates to real estate and I am empathetic to their situation and needs. I love listing homes and helping buyers find the home of their dreams. If it's a primary residence you desire or simply a sound investment property to rent,  I'll work with you to find that perfect home.

I work hard to make sure people are happy with the home they purchase and that they won't get into a situation where their home will depreciate. I'll work with prospective buyers to understand their FICO scores and what they need to do to qualify for a home loan. I have access to a team of loan officers, credit repair personnel,  title/escrow officers, home inspectors, home stagers, contractors, etc. to make the process easier and more seamless for my clients. I am also an entertainment guide on the valley's best restaurants, shopping, parks, dog parks, farmers markets, fitness centers, health faciilities, hiking trails, tourist attractrions -- you name it!

Having lived in both north Phoenix and in north Scottsdale, I am familiar with mid priced to high end homes. This includes the neighborhoods of Desert Ridge, Grayhawk, McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale Ranch, Scottsdale Horizon neighborhood, Paradise Valley, Moon Valley and DC Ranch.

I love the feeling of handing over the keys to a buyer or helping someone sell their home so they can move on to the next phase of their life. I've worked with investors who have tons of equity in their properties keeping in mind the principle that you make your money when you buy. One of my clients was so happy after he bought the first home that he bought five more from me in the same neighborhood.

A native  of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I moved to Phoenix in 2002. I am an avid sports fan and am true to my Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers, although I follow the Arizona teams and like the Phoenix Suns. I enjoy working out at the gym, hiking with my sheltie Cody,  taking vacations in northern Arizona, watching movies, trying new places to eat and drink with my friends, interesting conversation and cooking. A former print journalist and broadcasts news and sports anchor, I find these communication skills help a lot in the real estate business and in marketing homes. Some of my more recent trips include Costa Rica and the national parks… Yellowstone, Bryce, Grand Canyon and the Grand Tetons. A goal is to travel more and farther.

    Lynn has been my Realtor for the past 4-1/2 years. She rented my condo 4 times and sold my home. She assisted with the purchase of my current home. I have employed Lynn on all these occasions because of her wonderful communication skills, excellent follow through and real estate experience.

    On one occasion, Lynn listed my condominium property during a market downturn. She sent me frequent updates and client feedback. She also developed several creative options to enhance the unit as a rental. Since the unit was vacant, she recommended offering a free week of rent so a prospective tenant could have additional move-in time. The strategy worked and the unit was quickly rented.

    My last purchase was a foreclosed property. Dealing with the bank offered some challenges. Lynn was always persistent and appropriately pursued answers to my questions. If Lynn didn't have an answer, she was quick to seek out qualified resources and provided me with the best information.

    What makes Lynn unique as a Realtor? First, she is extremely conscientious and always makes sure her clients are informed. She quickly responds to voicemail/email and adjusts her schedule to meet the client's immediate needs. Secondly, Lynn makes buying/selling a fun experience. She remains calm and easygoing in challenging situations She truly makes the client feel like a top priority.

    Lynn also provides some other unique services. She has a vast number of referral resources she makes available to her clients. For me, these referrals included painters, handyman services, tile repair, window/carpet cleaning and HVAC inspection. Lynn's goal is to have any listed property in the best possible condition. She does what is necessary to keep the buying/selling/renting process a successful venture.

    Lynn provides superior service to her clients. Her personal integrity, strong business experience and hard work make her the Realtor of choice in Arizona.

    it is my pleasure to offer a rousing recommendation for Phoenix real estate agent, Lynn Behlendorf.

    In early 2010, a friend of mine called me to check out a fantastic deal she got on a single family home in the Phoenix area. After seeing my friend's home, I wanted one, too. It was my friend's real estate agent, Lynn, who heard me loud and clear...and a few weeks later she called to tell me she found one for me. I flew to Phoenix and inspected the property. It was perfect as an investment complete with tile floors, granite countertops, and what I estimated was less than $5K in fix-up costs. The house closed on a Thursday and to my amazement, Lynn had it listed and rented the next day.

    So I told Lynn to get me another property with the same specs/price. Long story short, I ended up closing on 4 properties in 2010 and 2 in 2011. And everything went as smoothly as the first one, in large part, because of Lynn's superior ability to make excellent selections for me to consider, her negotiating skills and attention to detail. When some of my tenants went on to buy their own home they chose Lynn to find them a home.

    It was not my intention to buy 6 properties. I'm already "retired" and thought I would use some of the money being lost in stock market investments to buy ONE rental property. But Lynn made it so easy, was so helpful and made the decision a "no-brainer" that one led to five others.

    if you're looking for a real estate PROFESSIONAL, you will not find a better agent than Lynn. I have interacted with at least a dozen agents over my 40 years buying my home(s) and rental properties in the US and Canada and Lynn is simply the best.

    I encourage you to experience Lynn's ability to help you with YOUR real estate buying and selling needs.
