Testimonials

David and Kim S.

Lynn was amazing in every sense of the word! She did so much more than we would have known to, or thought to, do in preparing our home for sale and showing it. Starting with her initial inspection of the house, she guided and supported us planning a timeline and preparing for the sale. Her kindness and gentle prodding helped us see what needed to be done to sell at the very top of the market. From clearing out, paring down, staging and showing our property, she was there with positive feedback, encouragement and a can-do attitude both to us and all our prospective buyers.

She went SO far above and beyond what normal relators had done previously. For our first meeting, she brought bento trays and we sat eating and talking in a way that helped us see all the needed steps required in the process. She then provided a timeline that met our requests (and changed it happily each time we asked!!) We were continuously awed by her energy and enthusiasm for selling our home. For example, she helped us hold two separate garage sales that were VERY successful financially as well as actually fun days! I have to tell you that was an amazing feat because I was totally against those events. If it hadn't been for Lynn and Kim, it never would have happened.

Lynn then staged our home to make it look like it belonged in a high-end Honolulu magazine. When we shared the pictures with our family and friends on the island and the mainland, everyone remarked how beautiful, spacious and island-like our home looked! It is a testament to her design abilities and her innate sense of staging! She brought in all the 'staging additions' that truly sent the house 'over the top' for the listing day and initial open house. Not only did she make it beautiful, she added fun, whimsical and 'local' special touches that made it feel warm and welcoming to buyers.

She then orchestrated an open house for neighbors that was the best party we'd seen and attended in a years! We later heard that she had gone door to door around several blocks in our area and invited all the residents personally! She even provided us with hand written invitations to distribute to others we knew. We enjoyed the food and live music (YES -- LIVE!) as much as our neighbors and wished we would have known she had such amazing local connections long before.

She and her husband both went 'above and beyond' by helping us fix a window that needed upgrading to meet current codes, finding and securing the permits for previous work we had done to the home, advised on painting and then helped us accomplish it and lastly worked with our cleaner to make sure the house was spotless for showings, the buyers inspection and on the last days to ready the home for closing. We weren't even in town and she made all that happen seamlessly ... and most importantly, without any stress to us.

Her positive attitude and continued encouragement never let us doubt that we would be successful. She has boundless enthusiasm, unflagging energy and couldn't have been a better choice in realtors. We have recommended her consistently to friends and neighbors and we were thrilled to learn one chose her to list their property on the north shore.

We cannot say enough glowing remarks or positive accolades about Lynn and her capabilities. To say we are thrilled is an understatement. She is amazing, remarkable and exemplifies the true "Aloha" spirit! Kim and I agree she is a "one-in-a-million" realtor and deserves this award more than any realtor we've EVER used!

Lynn got down on her hands and needs to help us clean and do repairs to our home. She coordinated and fronted the money for any other repairs or cleanings she could not do herself. She communicated with us on a daily bases and always made sure we were absolutely sure about any decisions that were made. Lynn took her time to explain realtor jargon and made sure we always made our deadlines with the sell of this house but also with the acquiring of our new home. Lynn is not only a great realtor, she is a god sent who makes dreams a reality. She is a great asset to this community.

Lynn's motto is "Aloha Spoken Here" and that just begins to describe how amazing she is. We not only conceder Lynn our friend but first and foremost she is OHANA. She had previously been the seller/buyer agent for my mom when she sold and bought a new property. This is when my wife Ophe, our sons Rider and Cale and I met Lynn. The aloha, kindness and patience she showed my mom is what stood out most.

When we had the opportunity to purchase our first house Lynn was our first choice and after the home buying process we would not hesitate to use her again. In fact I recommend her to anyone I meet looking to purchase a house. Her dedication to finding the perfect house for us was amazing as I'm very particular in what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the real estate market and realistic expectations was a great guide, yet she encouraged us to dream and think past our basic needs. Lynn was always available to answer questions in person or via phone and/or email. This was very important to us because of how the real estate market in in Hawaii setting up open houses around our schedules and getting some first looks was great. Her vision of, what could be, looking past original construction of houses made every house we looked at amazing. Her hard work and relentless pursuit to find our first home is awe-inspiring.

Lynn truly embodies the aloha spirit in everything she did and continues to do for our us. We have our home because of Lynn and will always consider her part of our Ohana.

First, Lynn advised and assisted extrication from real estate scam.
Recognized immediately that the house was unique and would only appeal to a special segment of the market...youthful, with an eye to architectural uniquely located and construction.
2nd, with Soldat Constructuo, completely upgraded the 40 year old interior to current day market appeal with new electrical, plumbing, appliances and paint.
3rd. Staged the home immaculately to best showcase the site and home.
4th. Oversaw international marketing effort and multiple open houses.
5th. Finally, oversaw a complicated but ultimately successful sale of the property at best price where both buyer and seller experienced win-win.

It is hard to describe how grateful and indebted I am to Lynn Young Soldat, who helped me purchase my home in Kane’ohe. She is incredibly knowledgeable, hard-working, kind-hearted and she makes things happen. Lynn went way beyond the job description for a realtor. There were many challenges with the purchase, and every time we hit an obstacle Lynn would call a resource and get back to me (within minutes) with an answer and a solution. (Born and raised on the Windward side, Lynn has a long list of resources, including her wonderful husband, Mike, who is a contractor and who was an incredible help. I’m still calling Lynn for referrals and resources.)

It’s clear that being a realtor is more than just a job to Lynn; she loves to help people find their dream home and improve their lives. It's her passion. I highly recommend Lynn Young Soldat. I know that as with many of her clients, I have made a life-long friend, and I cherish this friendship.
