As an Army Veteran, I've always known that I had the VA Home Loan benefit available to me, but I always questioned whether I could handle the responsibility that comes with homeownership...that is until I began discussing my options with Lynell! She not only helped me build confidence in myself as a potential homeowner, but took the time to ACTIVELY listen to what I wanted in a home, and did not deviate from my wishes. At the end of every property tour, she asked me to pick my top 2 properties and explain to her why I liked them so much, which helped me redefine my "must-haves" and "dealbreakers" for a property.
Additionally, Lynell kept me well-informed on what to expect during every step of the homebuying process, (which can make/break your homebuying ambitions), including the inevitable disappointment experienced whenever someone outbid me on a property I really wanted, plus she held my hand through the entire escrow process!
Last, but most importantly, at NO time did I ever feel pressured to buy a property I didn't truly love, regardless of the seller's preferences that sometimes steer clear of VA home loans (unlike other real estate agents I'd worked with), so I never felt like Lynell was "only in it for the commission"...she was there because she CARED! For this reason, I'd highly recommend Lynell Holden to anyone seeking to purchase or sell property! Not only is she a great Real Estate Broker, she's come to be a great friend.
