Ten years ago, I contracted with Lynne to find the perfect home in Washington, D.C. She was successful! When I was ready to sell, I interviewed Lynne, along with other local, most competent realtors. There was no question, Lynne was the best fit for me. Lynne is the consummate professional, thoughtful, sensitive, a wonderful listener, sincere, foresees beyond the immediate and, most importantly, understands the nuisances of selling real estate. Lynne immediately realized that only special financing would enable a certain buyer to purchase my home due to the nature of my condominium complex. She then researched and accessed financial sources for prospective buyers. Additionally, Lynne was amazingly helpful in timing the sale of the property, like a conductor counting down to a concert...just perfect. As a result, two bids were submitted within three days of the property going onto the market. Kudos to Lynne Tucker...she took my property 360 degrees...from purchase to sale flawlessly!

Lynne completely transformed our home search, and I can't say how grateful I feel to have found such a talented agent. Lynne's knowledge of the housing market is extensive. Her insights into every step of the process were invaluable, from evaluating homes and understanding the market, to navigating the home inspection process, to making a strong offer, to obtaining a mortgage and beyond. She was responsive and available, an excellent listener who took the time to understand what particularly mattered to us and to help us find it. She never pushed but offered perceptive observations in an extremely helpful way. Her professional but genuine demeanor made the house-hunting experience enjoyable, and knowing we had a reliable, trusted, experienced agent on our side helped to put me at ease. While Lynne worked with us as a buyer's agent, she was recommended to me by someone who worked with her as a seller's agent. Should I ever need to sell, I will be calling Lynne.
Working with Lynne to sell our home was truly an excellent experience. She has great local knowledge and we were able to get a contract within four days of coming to market. Lynne provided great advice in preparing our home for sale and closing. She was extremely responsive to emails, texts, and phone calls all throughout the listing and pre-settlement process. We would highly recommend Lynne for any real estate need.

Lynne Tucker helped my wife and me identify and purchase a home in Montgomery County. We were relocating from New Jersey. Lynne made a real effort to understand and meet our requirements, which shifted during the search which spanned several months. Her knowledge and support facilitated the search, negotiation and purchase. We would strongly recommend Lynne to anyone in a similar situation.
Mike and Debbie D.
We love Lynne! She helped us find our dream house in our dream location for a good price, and we couldn't be happier. She was very patient with us, and she always responded to our calls and texts right away. If it wasn't for a suggestion she gave us, we might never have found our amazing house.
Paul and Eva P.
Wanted to let you know that it was a great experience to work with Lynne on the sale of our property. Lynne was very responsive and professional, and we relied on her opinion to have our home ready for sale. We would recommend Lynne to our other family and friends.
Tom and Rose Bailey
Lynne helped me purchasing my first home and I didn't feel any stress about the process at all. During closure and settlement, a seller's agent spoke highly of her and mentioned that she was able to get my offer accepted in spite of higher offers during bidding process. I'd love to work with her again in the future.
Lynne has worked with me with the purchase and, later, the sale of my home. She is truly an amazing, hardworking, and dedicated professional. Additionally, she is wholly attentive to the needs of active-duty military clients. Resounding endorsement!
The sale of our property was executed smoothly and professionally. Lynne was available at all times to answer questions, give guidance and to manage our expectations. I would highly recommend Lynne as a real estate professional who demonstrates professionalism and expertise.
Silver Spring, MD
My husband and I are very happy we decided to list our home for sale with Lynne. She was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful in answering all our questions and walking us through this process. She was always very responsive and has a wonderful team of people who made things run very smoothly. We absolutely recommend Lynne!
Brian and Rosemary Leier
Lynne was recommended by a friend and met and exceeded all of our expectations. My wife and I were first-time buyers, and Lynne was very helpful in every phase of the home-buying process. She clearly knows the market well, was able to point out red flags during home tours, and was very responsive when we reached out to her. I'd recommend her to anyone searching in this area, particularly Montgomery County.
Adam and Anna Jacobs
Lynne makes herself available to client needs via phone, text, and email. Great to have an agent who would reply back to you immediately even if it's a casual question. If you live in Parklands in Gaithersburg, she is the best agent for it, she knows the neighborhood better than any agents in the area. And the photos of the home were amazing!
When we agreed upon a selling strategy, Lynne's neighborhood expertise provided us an unexpected confidence that our asking price was fair to then-current market. She encouraged us to stick to the sale strategy when we hesitated prior to listing, and it proved to be spot-on. Throughout the entire process, she was a helpful resource and constantly available to us. Lynne sold our home in only 4 days from going on the market and at our asking price!
Andrew and Mallory Cecere
Lynne is a phenomenal real estate professional. She came highly recommended and did not disappoint! Lynne is incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and effective. She has a strong support team (for staging, repairs, marketing, etc.). She did a superb job in selling our home and was a joy to work with. She is the utmost professional and made the complex selling process seem easy. We highly recommend Lynne Tucker.
Let's face it, selling a house can be a stressful experience. Lynne Tucker made selling our home, however, a stress-free event. Lynne provided concierge-level service and handled every detail from preparing the home for listing through the closing process. Along the way, Lynne leveraged her extensive support network of professionals to assist in staging the home, making necessary repairs, and marketing the listing. In addition, Lynne's advice was spot-on with respect to pricing and negotiation. Lynne was responsive, knowledgeable, and patient. Lynne Tucker was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend her.
I cannot recommend Lynne highly enough. She was recommended to us by a friend, and it was a truly a wonderful match. She is warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated to her clients. Lynne was always readily available to answer any questions, concerns or issues that may have arisen. She was efficient, professional and thorough in explaining the home-selling process, getting the house listed, and provided frequent updates regarding interest and activity in the property as well as comparable properties in the surrounding area. The home was under contract within 4 days of being listed, receiving a very strong offer. The follow-through with the remainder of the process, up through and including the closing, was again thorough, professional, and went VERY smoothly. We had a wonderful experience with Lynne and we are truly grateful!
Lynne got my house sold quickly in a tough market. She was actually the listing agent when I purchased the house. I observed how well she represented her client. When time came to me to sell the same house, I had no hesitation at all to choose her as my agent. Selling a house is a stressful process; Lynne was so helpful and thoughtful throughout the process. She is the number one agent in my area. I strongly recommend her without any reservation.
Peng Wu, Potomac, MD
I highly recommend Lynne if you are planning to sell your home. I moved prior to listing, and Lynne handled everything for me while I was out of town for things like scheduling cleanings, staging, inspections and fix-ups. The listing was well done with professional photos and a virtual tour. I was kept up-to-date regularly, and she was available for any questions I had and for all important events. The home sold quickly in under two weeks, and Lynne made sure the transaction went smoothly.
Lynne's market knowledge was on point, and her expertise in showing the property was masterful. After one open house I received two contracts, and we did not look back. We closed on time, and it was a painless process.
Ed R., Germantown, MD
Lynne was a phenomenal resource for my fiancé and I as we searched for our first home together. With Lynne's impressive background, we were worried that she was a bit out of our league, but Lynne was extremely patient with us as we explored various housing options and locations in the DC area. She was also very responsive no matter how small or simple the question. Lynne was also highly regarded by everyone we worked with, which also helped streamline and make the closing process very smooth. I would highly recommend Lynne to any buyer that is searching. Thanks Lynne
Lynne did an amazing job in helping my family find a home in the DC area. She was incredibly responsive, took the time to evaluate our needs, and used her in-depth knowledge of both the area and real estate to help us secure our home in the right place for the right price. If you are looking to sell or buy in the DC area, don't waste your time with other realtors, call Lynne Tucker.
Robin Guthrie, Darnestown
Lynne was fantastic!!! This is my third home purchase and by far the smoothest and easiest experience of them all. We are new to the area and she helped us better understand the local real estate market. She did a great job looking at the area and getting us a price that we were very happy with. Our little one even asks when is Ms. Lynne is coming to visit us. I would use Lynne again in heartbeat, but since we are never moving this experience will have to last a lifetime.
Jonathan Fetsko, Gaithersburg, MD
Lynne was a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting she made our home-buying process as stress-free as possible. We are new to Maryland, but Lynne made navigating the MoCo real estate market a breeze. We were under contract in a few days and closed in a month. She was also more than happy to keep our 2.5-year-old son entertained during tours and meetings. We would absolutely recommend Lynne to anyone in the market.
Melissa Schroeder, Gaithersburg, MD
The BEST real estate transaction I've ever done! And I've done SEVERAL!!! She was responsive, knowledgeable, and EXTREMELY pleasant to be with! Wouldn't hesitate to use her again!
L. Francis, Potomac, MD
Lynne helped me to decide on what type of home I wanted to purchase for the future. She suggested places and kept me updated on what homes were available in areas that interested me. And when I wanted to see something, she picked me up and took me everywhere. When I made my final choice, she helped me get my current home ready for sale with contacts for staging, yard cleanup, carpet cleaning, etc. She has really made my sale and future purchase easier than I ever expected. Finally, she has become a good friend as well as my agent.
Daryll Miller, Gaithersburg, MD
After having a less than stellar experience a few years ago that resulted in no purchase, I was a bit apprehensive about getting back into the buying market. Lynne is a very capable realtor, period. She made sure to let me dream about the home I wanted without letting me check too far out of reality, she helped me avoid several pitfalls of properties I suggested and responded quickly when the property I ultimately bought had to be moved on quickly. Now she was very helpful in helping me find my property, but where she really shined was in everything from that point to closing. Lynne had great advice for me when I had to rebid, kept up with me on every item that needed to addressed between my bid being accepted and the time I signed my name at closing. I would glowingly recommend this realtor to anyone looking for a home in this at times very difficult market.
Davis Schuncke, Gaithersburg, MD
As first-time home sellers, Lynne was thorough and patient, helping guide us through each step of the process with professionalism and ease. She was extremely responsive and went above and beyond to ensure our home was marketed properly for the fastest sale possible. Thanks to Lynne's expertise, our home was under contract in just 6 days! We are so grateful we had the opportunity to work with Lynne and highly recommend her for your home buying/selling needs. You won't be disappointed!
Jaime and Tim Brown, Gaithersburg, MD
Lynne had extensive knowledge of the area we were searching and advised us in many ways. She not only knew the neighborhoods but of the county's future planning that might impact us. During closing and settlement, Lynne's understanding of the home-buying process and negotiation skills proved invaluable. She made sure we had all of the pre-approval forms done correctly (We had forgotten how many there were, and when it came to negotiation, she gave us advice and options we hadn't thought about. Lynne has a no-nonsense, advisor style and is easy to approach. In the end she wasn't our realtor, but our "home therapist."
Michael Barr, Bethesda, MD
Lynne helped my family find a wonderful home that met the disparate wish list between my husband and myself. We had a great experience and are very happy with our purchase.
Cynthia Elesinmogu, Bethesda, MDn
Lynne is fantastic. She helped us sell our townhome before buying this house, and both experiences were great. She is excellent at staging and selling a house and then helped us through many, many months of searching and a tricky negotiation to buy our current home. We loved working with her.
Shannon Lopez, Damascus, MD
Lynne is an incredible agent. I had a bit of a complicated situation where I couldn't buy a new house until I sold my old one, but Lynne walked me through the entire process, made me feel comfortable with everything and helped me purchase a house I love. She has great instinct and strategy, she's very, very patient and organized, and she's just generally a great person. For the house I sold, she got me A LOT over asking price, and with the house I purchased, she helped me beat out four other offers — all in the span of about 10 days. I can't recommend her enough!
Right from the start, Lynne was always professional, engaged, available, and positive. She had the difficult task of dealing with a number of siblings handling different parts of getting the Potomac house ready for sale. She was always available, made great recommendations, and remained aware of what everyone was contributing. It was always a positive experience and the result of selling the house so quickly speaks for itself.
Lynne was crucial to helping us buy our first home with confidence. She not only took the time to show us our options, but she had patience for every little question along the way. She went out of her way to accommodate our crazy schedule and through every step of the process was right there when we needed her most. Without Lynne, we would have never found the perfect home for us.
Bonnie and Gregg Minoff
North Bethesda, Maryland
We were really impressed with how quickly Lynne was able to sell our townhome. She did a wonderful job helping us get the house ready and to ensure it looked terrific in the photos. More importantly, Lynne answered all of our questions very quickly. I truly felt like we were her only clients.
We had two offers on our townhome in just 10 days. We could not have been happier with the results from the moment we signed with Lynne right through to the settlement process.
We would highly recommend Lynne to anyone looking to sell their home.
Shannon and Rick Lopez
We highly recommend Lynne Tucker as a real estate agent. She helped us sell our house of 35 years in Bethesda in about three days on the market, during which we received two full-price offers. She worked with us very patiently before putting the house on the market as we sorted though too many things, decluttered, and repaired and rearranged the house for sale. Her wise counseling about how to make the house attractive to potential buyers so that they could envision themselves in the house was critical to how we worked through our precious “stuff.” We also appreciated Washington Fine Properties' custom of having several of their agents view the house and make recommendations for what the offering price might be. Lynne did a great job throughout the entire process, which led to a successful outcome and sale.
Carol and Tim
We have worked with several real estate agents through the years and have rarely worked with anyone as competent and professional as Lynne. She was very attentive to our needs and consistently follow up on issues during the process. We have worked with her several times and we will continue to do so in the future.
Nishita and Amjad
Lynne was perfect. She listened and understood our personal needs and desires for housing and she respected our style of decision-making. Lynn immediately got down to business in a very direct, efficient and organized way. We are in a house and neighborhood that we absolutely love!
Karrie Joseph & Steven Whitehorn
We would like to recommend Lynne Tucker for your real estate needs. Lynne listed our townhouse in Gaithersburg and spent endless hours marketing the home. She made certain that we received the appropriate exposure to sell our home at the best price. Lynne is a very personable, energetic agent, who goes the extra mile to ensure that her clients are comfortable with each step of the process, including input which Lynne takes very seriously. She represents a very reputable organization that provides the necessary support to get the job done.
We highly urge you to secure the services of Lynne for a positive real estate experience.
Alan and Tessa Weisman
Lynne Tucker is one of the most professional realtors I have ever known and a pleasure to work with. Over the course of the 3 years, my husband and I utilized her services for both renting a townhouse and purchasing a home. Throughout the entire process, Lynne was caring and motivated. She was easy to stay in contact with and would return emails and phone calls promptly.
We had a wonderful experience utilizing Lynne and Washington Fine Properties.
Kari and Shane Cashdollar
Relocation is stressful, and no one looks forward to it. When you’re relocating, you want to surround yourself with the best professionals in the industry. We found Lynne Tucker when we relocated to the Washington, DC, area. We knew that we needed someone who 1) knows the greater DC area, 2) is diligent in following up and working above and beyond showing us houses, and 3) communicates with us directly and honestly about choices and/or compromises we are making. From research, to showings, to negotiations, to closing, Lynne was there every step of the way, always diligent in her follow-up. What was even more appreciated was her care in researching potential homes, providing advanced surveys of each home prior to us seeing it, complete with market comparisons and her “opinion” on the homes.
All too often, realtor references can only offer a single perspective – buying a home or selling a home. We are delighted to offer Lynne a second reference after reselling the same home two years after buying it. We didn’t give a second thought to reselling this house with Lynne. Similar to her diligence in the purchase of our home in Potomac, Lynne demonstrated the same diligence and market research in selling out home, including professional photography, surveys, pricing, marketing pricing, marketing plan, and, of course, all of the showings. We had a lot of showings, almost 70 in total. The result was delightful, with multiple offers over list price. The house was under contract in less than two weeks on MLS, with smooth negotiations and a smooth closing. Along the way she was always there to do the extras, from reading the water meter to checking that the lawn service mowed the yard!
It would be great if Lynne would consider relocating wherever we went. Her professionalism, knowledge about the housing market, and responsive attention to detail alleviated much of the stress of buying and selling a house.
I can highly recommend Lynne Tucker. She skillfully and doggedly handled two very complex transactions that spanned more than a year in an estate situation. She worked with land engineers, the county permitting and planning department and various other government departments to get the properties ready for sale. She remained cheerful, professional and determined throughout the process. I couldn't have been happier with her advice and guidance.
We could not have sold out house in Takoma Park without Lynne's help. We had moved to Colorado, too far to travel back and forth often. We wanted to put the house in the best possible condition before it sold, so Lynne had professionals from all the trades visit the house to make suggestions about what needed to be done. She and we worked together to decide what to address, and then Lynne coordinated all the work in a timely manner. She worked independently, only contacting us occasionally, and updating us. There was a tenant living in the house while the work was being done, and Lynne managed to have all the work done with a minimum of inconvenience for our tenant.
Once the house was on the market, it sold very quickly, with multiple offers above the asking price, because Lynne had thoroughly researched the price, and worked with other real estate experts to come to the right amount. She staged the house to show it off in the best way and then arranged to donate the furniture we didn't take with us. It was very important to us that the whole affair was handled with integrity and fairness, which Lynne consistently did. There were no surprises on the way to closing. Throughout the entire seven-month process we only traveled to Takoma Park twice to sort through our own furniture and boxes we had left there when we moved. We could not have made a better choice in whom to work with in selling our house.
Selling one’s home is a challenging process: In addition to the emotional aspect of leaving your home, there is the matter of getting your place ready for the market, setting a price, and dealing with offers and feedback on your home. All of these were true for me when I put my beloved condo on the market in the fall of 2012. I felt completely confident in Lynne’s capable hands, as she steered me through the phases of listing, from staging my home, having the photographer in, and walking me through the realtor-client contract. She discussed all of my options and gave me solid advice.
My condo sold rather quickly, and things were moving along swimmingly. Lynne kept on top of all of the details for the sale: the appraisal, the buyers’ mortgage, the home inspection, and so on. At the last minute, less than a week before closing, there was a gigantic, unexpected event that put everything in jeopardy: The owner of the management company that worked with our association was accused by the State of Maryland of financial improprieties, and all financial accounts were frozen. Lynne was quick to identify what steps should be taken: Have the treasurer and the board identify and be sure that all of the association’s accounts, including the reserve, still existed; identify how the bills would be paid in the interim; and get a letter from the board indicating that all funds were accounted for and that the condo association was in no financial jeopardy. The buyer was satisfied with the financial condition, and the sale closed on time as scheduled. Without Lynne’s quick thinking and skill at navigating the situation, I am confident the sale would have fallen through.
So, if you are considering hiring Lynne to represent you in your sale or purchase of a home, I think you should go for it. She has a high level of empathetic professionalism that will make the process – which is universally challenging – as smooth as possible.
Our experience with Lynne Tucker as our realtor could not have been better. I was looking for an investment property in the Washington area that my young adult daughter could reside in. That meant that the place had to meet not just my criteria but also my daughter’s — which was a tall order to be sure! We were still unclear as to what that property would look like, where it would be located, etc. Lynne helped us really organize our overlapping ideas and intuited what we were trying to visualize extremely well — showing us properties that we were delighted to discover, with a range of choices. Lynne was personally great in the process, making everything easier than I could have imagined, in terms of her availability, interactions with both of us individually and together, following through with contacts, communication with contractors, and the necessary real estate agreements and meetings. She continued to be available with smart ideas and a wonderfully pleasant, confident and relaxed manner when we had questions, as long as we needed, making the whole affair easy and a very positive experience. (This was not at all the case when I bought my original home, using a different realtor). I highly recommend Lynne.
My wife and I really had an amazing experience with Lynne when we were searching for our new home. She was very patient, easy to work with and very accommodating to our timelines and needs. Buying a home, especially your first home, can be intimidating and overwhelming. Lynne made the entire experience better for us and we found a great home because of her.
However, we think what really separates Lynne from other realtors we know or have met, is that even after the sale, she has been just as engaged and responsive to our questions about home ownership. She takes her client relationships seriously and provides additional service even after the fact. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking in the DC area.
Jay and Stacey Sternberg
I am very pleased to recommend the services of Lynne Tucker for anyone interested in real estate transactions in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area. I was fortunate enough to have Lynne's assistance during my own search for, and purchase of, a residence in the Bethesda area. Throughout the process, she proved to be a very valuable asset. She was very knowledgeable of area markets and properties; was familiar with a host of related agencies (for home inspection, titling, lending, etc.); and served in my own interests at all times. Given additional complexities involved in the particular property I was interested in, I was especially appreciative of her networking capabilities and overall perseverance.
Based on the above, I would be pleased to work with Lynne Tucker again and would highly recommend her to others seeking similarly excellent services. Should you have any questions regarding this matter, feel free to contact me at any time.
We just want to say it has been a very wonderful, positive experience when it came time for us to buy our first home, and we give a lot of the credit to you. Your knowledge of the properties and the market made it possible for our dreams to come true, and we can’t thank you enough. We look forward to many years to come in our new home. Thanks again!
Chris and Cristin
We moved to Silver Spring from Australia in October 2010. We were so lucky to find Lynne as she helped us find the perfect house. She understood immediately what we were looking for and spent so much time showing us houses all throughout the Silver Spring area. Moving from overseas, we were extremely difficult customers and Lynne was exceptionally patient. She even won over our two-year-old. She is exceptionally professional and personable.
Fleur and Jason Gedamke
When we relocated to Greater Washington, we were not in a hurry to purchase right away. So when we began casually looking at our options, we weren’t in the market for a real estate agent. But the first time we met Lynne something clicked, and we trusted her immediately. We both knew that we wanted her to help us find our new home. She listened to us, understood exactly what we wanted, and tailored our search for the perfect house. And it worked! Within months we were homeowners, and we could not be more pleased. Buying a house can be very stressful, but Lynne made it easy and fun. Throughout our search, Lynne became part of our family, and we will always be indebted to her for her role in finding our new home.
We used Lynne Tucker to find a rental when we moved here from Michigan and again when we decided to buy in the area. Lynne listened to our needs and wants, then showed us places that matched. She was very patient with us and kept in close communication especially during our purchase. We would use Lynne again and recommend her for your real estate needs.
Dave Errickson and Lynne Stauff
I recently had the pleasure of working with Lynne on the purchase of my first home. While the experience of purchasing a new home can be very overwhelming, her expertise made me feel at ease. Throughout the process she was always there working for me and keeping me informed. I felt confident that that with her help the process would be painless. My expectations were shattered!! Lynne really went above and beyond in making this a wonderful experience on the road to becoming a new homeowner. Thank you so much!!
I am so grateful to have had Lynne as my realtor when I started looking at homes a year and a half ago. I did not realize how many emotions I would have putting my house I had loved for 14 years on the market. Lynne was incredibly patient, understanding, compassionate and always had time for me. She held my hand through the process at the same time she was professional, creative, savvy and focused. It took less than two weeks for her to sell it!
When we looked at new homes she understood exactly the feeling I wanted — she would even say "Nope, it's not it" just as I would be thinking it to myself. She understands people, is a great listener and gets the job done quickly and efficiently and made the process enjoyable. It was a pleasure working with Lynne — I have worked with a number of realtors and she is the most down to earth, attentive and genuine. I highly recommend Lynne!
As first-time home buyers and newcomers to DC, we had very little idea of what we wanted and where we should have been looking. We wrote to WFP before arriving for a whirlwind visit of DC a few months before our move, and Lynne immediately took us under her wing. By the time we arrived for our visit, Lynne had set up 4 days of house appointments almost perfectly catered to our needs and desires. She was incredibly knowledgeable and was careful to point out important aspects of each home and area that we may have overlooked. Not only was she honest about the pros and cons of each home, but we could tell that she truly had our best interests at heart. She was frank when she suspected a market price or cost of upkeep was too high and voiced her concerns openly with us. She listened carefully to our likes and dislikes with each property and tweaked our viewing itinerary accordingly each time. When we finally found our dream property, just one day on the market, Lynne really held our hand throughout the process. She guided us through the paperwork and red tape and ensured we obtained a top-quality home inspection and escrow service. After moving in she even set us up with landscapers, a book for first-time home owners, and a wonderful bottle of wine! :) As we expect to leave DC in a few years’ time, we are incredibly comforted in the knowledge that Lynne will be there once again to help us sell our beautiful home to another lucky family.
