Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Lynn Reid moved to the Bay area in 1987 and has loved living here ever since. Lynn is highly regarded in the real estate community for her experience, integrity and negotiating skills and her previous clients are her biggest fans. Having raised her family in the Bay Area, her intimate knowledge of the schools, recreation options, transportation, cultural activities and shopping helps her clients tremendously when purchasing a home. In addition to buying your next home, if you need a pediatrician, a great book store or the best chocolate desserts, just ask her.

Real estate is a profession that is based on personal relationships and trust not only between a Realtor and her clients but also with other Realtors and the larger real estate community.  Lynn is passionate about her work and brings energy, enthusiasm, experience and insight to her dealings with her clients and colleagues alike. She has excellent interpersonal skills as well as a deep understanding of what it takes to bring people together to successfully complete transactions.

Would strongly recommend Lynn to anyone looking for a focused, service-driven, detail-oriented agent. She and I were on a "journey" that lasted over two years in order to acquire a specific property in a specific location. After multiple efforts and bids, we finally succeeded. During this time, Lynn worked diligently on my behalf, serving as an effective intermediary for me, working with other agents, mortgage brokers and other parties involved in the transaction. Never once did I feel that she did not have my interests at heart. And even though the journey was long, she nevertheless persisted with me, demonstrating patience and goodwill. Thank you Lynn for all your hard work on my behalf!

Lynn helped us sell our Mill Valley home in 2014. Frankly the house wasn't in the best of shape and time was of the essence. Lynn absolutely advised us and we got rolling in all the directions we needed - staging, paint, landscape, and more. We couldn't have done it without her. As a consequence, the house had multiple offers in one week! We were so happy. She is knowledgeable, professional and a delight to work with. She is at the top of my list as a realtor and I wouldn't hesitate a second to recommend her.

– Diane Wren

Lynn is the most friendly and supportive agent you could possibly find. Her expertise and calming nature helped me make it through what could have been an agonizing experience. From initial strategy, to prep work, marketing and closing she shouldered the burdens and left little for me to worry about. I can't thank Lynn enough for all she has done for me. Use Lynn. You won't be disappointed.

– J. Villanueve

Lynn is terrific. She listened, understood and sensed our needs to successfully sell our home and buy another home. She navigated the sell-buy process, smoothly managed challenges along the way, and never lost sight of our needs, desires and dreams. She has high integrity, is very professional and takes care of her clients.

– Jean P Roux

Lynn Reid is a gem. A complete package: house savvy, long time Marin Resident, a great sense of humor, enthusiasm and integrity. I must have been the client from "hell" since it took me two years and seeing hundreds of homes. I never felt rushed nor pressure from Lynrn. She also sold our home and as always we felt her competency as the sale progressed without a hitch. Lynn Reid is a joy to work with!

– Stephanie Rosenblatt

I just bought a lovely house in San Francisco while living on the east coast and I could not have done it without Lynn's help. Her sunny disposition, dogged research and seemingly infinite flexibility allowed me to find the perfect place and close within 60 days in the most competitive market in the country! She is truly amazing and makes you feel like you are her only client throughout (and after) the process.

– Stacey Ann Kuch

Lynn was amazing to work with- friendly, patient and professional. We are incredibly thankful to have found her and warmly recommend her. In fact, we have referred friends to her and they were also very satisfied with her work. She is a true pleasure to work with.

Lynn Reid is very professional in every way. She listens to buyers and sellers, negotiates the best deal and follows up all loose ends to close the best deal possible.

We love our home! Lynn made sure we ended up with the best home for us. After looking at just a few houses together, she was able to hone in on the things that were most important to us. Our time was never wasted viewing homes that didn't fit our criteria, and we never felt that Lynn was just trying to close a deal. Rather, we felt 100% of her attention was focused on making sure we ended up with the home that best fit us and our lifestyle. Once we found the house of our dreams, Lynn's attention to detail made all of the paperwork of home buying practically stress-free. Highly recommended!

Lynn was a constant professional while we searched for a home. She was very patient and very knowledgable about each area we explored for our home purchase. Once we we were in contract, she was readily available thoughout our escrow and an excellent resource when we met with the seller. She made what can be a stressful experience into a pleasurable transition for me and my wife. I give her the highest recommendation to anyone looking for a real advocate when purchasing or selling a home.

– Mark

Lynn was wonderful to work with: professional, friendly, understanding of my needs. She accommodated my schedule of trips from Nebraska and my somewhat unusual house-hunting criteria. She provided me with a great selection of homes that I could sort through ahead of time, allowing me to focus on the most likely candidates for my brief visits. My intent was to purchase a house that was acceptable both to me and my daughter (the occupant), and given our disparate preferences and tastes, Lynn did an amazing job of finding a house that we both love. I recommended Lynn when my son was looking for a house a few months later, and she found him the perfect home as well.

Lynn was such a pleasure to work with. She was responsive and knowledgeable. She made the process easy for us. As first time home buyers she was a wealth of knowledge and put us at ease among the stress of a major life decision. I would highly recommend Lynn to anyone looking to purchase a home.

– Courtney W.

I first met Lynn Reid after receiving a strong recommendation in 2009. She spent a year helping find the right home in Mill Valley. She was knowledgeable about the area, proactive and patient with a client (me!) that was very picky! Ultimately she helped me find the right home and when time came to sell it in 2014, there was no question about using her skills again. She is absolutely stellar in trustworthiness, staying on top of transaction marketing and details and has a lovely attitude. She went out of her way to help in any way she could with recommendations of stagers, landscapers and design ideas to help the sale. She enjoys her work which transpired to make the sale quite painless. Once the house was on the market, we had several offers and it sold within one week! I would heartily recommend her to anyone looking for complete real estate expertise.

– Diane W.

Lynn helped us buy our first house in San Francisco. We had small budget and high expectations and she was super patient and accommodating. As she got to know us better she would prioritize options according to what she thought we would like. We ultimately found the perfect house and she had great network of people to help with insurance, loans, inspections, etc.... An extra bonus is that she is a lovely person to spend time with.

– Suzanne

Lynn is not only highly-skilled at the business of real estate, she also understands the personal side and works hard to find the perfect new home for her clients. This is our second home purchase with Lynn. We definitely recommend her without hesitation.

– Christine and Jeff Darling

When I decided to put the house I've lived in for 43 years on the market, I was very slow to select a Realtor. I personally knew many realtors but wasn't entirely comfortable sharing this personal experience with them. A mutual acquaintance introduced me to Lynn, and I'm happy to say it was an excellent relationship. Lynn stepped in and helped me make some tough decisions, found the help I needed, and quietly supervised all the and work and organizing and packing and cleaning and she arranged for all the inspections. She even pitched in and helped at my yard sale. No-stone-unturned Lynn, she should be called. But her quiet demeanor and sense of humor fit my personality well. I could, quite frankly, never have gotten the house ready for market w/o her. And then she oversaw the open house and the offers and the entire closing without losing her perfect composure. I could not have imagined how well the entire project went - really in thanks to Lynn.

– Debbie Mills

I have worked with Lynn over the last 8 years. She has given me great service and advice. I highly recommend her if you are interested in or currently involved in a real estate transaction.

She has excellent written and verbal communication skills and can work well under pressure. Lynn has an analytical and inventive mind and often thinks outside the box.

– Elaine

My wife and I sold our house at a very challenging time - winter in the middle of an economic recession. Based on her real estate experience and business background, Lynn gave us sage advice on how to creatively bring our house to market. She quickly understood the target audience for our house and how to present it to them in an effect way.The strategy worked. Our house moved quickly and sold for a price that was very agreeable. Lynn earned our respect and I would recommend her to anyone who wants an agent that can quickly understand the market, the situation and adeptly craft a strategy to get the desired results.

– Michael and Michelle

Lynn has represented me in a number of real estate transaction.

She has excellent verbal and written skills and is extremely reliable and trustworthy. I would highly recommend Lynn Reid.

Lynn is always well informed and reliable. A steady source in the sometimes stormy environment of real estate. She has helped guide us competently through many thorny issues. Any client would be lucky to have her represent them in a transaction.

Lynn Reid of McGuire Real Estate secured an offer at listing price five days after my house was put on the market in early 2010. What more can you ask? We worked together to successfully price the property and bring my home up to optimum showing condition, comparing it to other houses available in the same price range near the Almonte District of Mill Valley. Lynn knows the competition for the properties they represent. Lynn knows Marin. Her expertise was invaluable. She worked tirelessly to manage several contractors to bring the house up to expectation, showcase the house, and worked with me long distance through the successful close. Talk to her about the successful sale!

We're totally happy and completely in love with our new home in San Rafael. Jeff and I cannot thank you enough for your role in making sure we ended up with the best home for us. After looking at just a few houses together, you were able to hone in on the things that were most important to us. Our time was never wasted viewing homes that didn't fit our criteria and we never felt that you were trying to close a deal. Rather, we felt 100% of your attention was focused on making sure we ended up with the home that best fit us and our lifestyle.
