What Lynn's Customers Say

Jane Spicer


"Lynn is a consummate professional. She was organized, well researched and well versed every time we met. Lynn has a beautiful, dynamic energy and brings a level of professionalism that is second to none. I HIGHLY recommend that you work with her on the sale or purchase of your home.”


Tim & Roseanne


“My wife & I have been involved in numerous real estate transactions during our lifetime. Lynn is by far the most knowledgeable, honest, proactive, detail oriented & hardest working Realtor we have ever encountered.”


Doug W


"Lynn was by far the best realtor I've ever worked with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and she went above and beyond in every aspect of the purchase. I am an out-of-state buyer and I honestly don't know how I would have done it without her. She was attentive to the smallest details as well as the big ones, and made me much more comfortable being 1000 miles away. I felt like I truly had someone in Naples looking out for my interests and keeping me informed every step of the way."


J & L Zamora


"We were very fortunate to have Lynn represent us as our selling agent. We have bought and sold more than 10 homes during our professional careers dealing with several Realtors. Lynn by far was the most knowledgeable and professional of all the Realtors we have worked with. She understands her market, is very attentive to detail, easy to reach, and really knows how to best market your home. We highly recommend having Lynn represent you as your selling or buying Realtor if you are serious about pursuing another home."


Tom & Pat Allen


"Lynn's knowledge, skills and great personality made our home search and purchase a relaxing and satisfying experience. We have owned 5 homes over the last 30 years, but only in Pennsylvania. We had a significant learning curve which just about disappeared through our experience with Lynn. Her assessment and listening skills translated our thoughts, wants and desires into finding us "the perfect home" in just a few days."


K Schreiner


“I would highly recommend working with Lynn. We both purchased our home and sold it, two years later, with Lynn. Her attention to detail and repertoire with other professionals (other Realtors, photographers, inspectors, contractors, etc.) keeps the process moving swiftly. It was a pleasure working with Lynn and we would absolutely work with her again”


Sue Marineau


"Lynn is professional, knows the real estate market inside and out, and has a level of integrity that you just don't find that often. She's not just a Realtor, she truly cares about the people she works with."


Jeff B.


"Realtor Lynn Charlas White's expertise has been priceless to my wife and me. Considering our past 25 real estate transactions, she is simply the best Realtor that we have ever worked with. Lynn helped us purchase our future dream home 1900 miles away from our lifelong home base. We were most impressed with how Lynn managed the details while keeping us informed throughout the complicated transaction. She has a keen awareness of a buyer's unique needs and expectations. Then leverages her wealth of expertise to achieve and exceed them. Buying a new home can be a stressful situation. But, doing business with Lynn was a pleasure."


David H


Lynn is an exceptional agent. It doesn't take long to realize she is tenacious in her work, she lives and breathes it. She worked diligently to find the perfect property, never settling for less than our criteria & well exceeding it. At negotiations & contract you realize she is very professional and knowledgeable. After all, a great listing isn't yours until you have a master at hand to negotiate and secure it on your behalf. Thank you Lynn for making our dream to own a beautiful second home a reality, a dream property we enjoy so much. After the process I realized there were so many opportunities for an agent to have taken an easier approach, but you are a true liaison, guiding us and negotiating that perfect property, pointing out important considerations one should include.


Richard & Lynn C


Lynn Charlas White has been our broker for 8+ years. She is incredibly knowledgable, professional, and personable. As an expert negotiator, Lynn has the ability to make a deal happen, and she removes all the stress from the situation. Her charm, dynamic personality and fantastic communication skills have made every transaction incredibly smooth.

Lynn is a "can-do" realtor who always looks out for the interest of her clients. She is honest, up front and always exceeded our expectations. She is a true gem and I am honored to have dealt with such an ethical realtor.
