Linda and her assistant Lauren are an excellent team and are very knowledgeable and professional. They were a pleasure to deal with and made the whole process of selling our home stress free. We highly recommend Linda and Lauren!
David M, Seller
Linda and Lauren are a great team. They are both so friendly and truly care about their clients. They got us through some buyer "hiccups" in the first couple of months, but they did get us to the finish line. They did all of that with a smile and humor, which I am particularly fond of. Whenever we had concerns, Linda and/or Lauren were on it and communication was key. I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for insightful, kind, responsive, friendly realtors.
Dianna N., Seller
Linda is a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to work with her again. I would definitely give her five stars!
David & Melanie/Pawling Seller
Working with Linda was terrific. She was extremely responsive, helpful, thoughtful and attentive. She guided us through every step of the process and was always available to talk through the various decision points and questions that came up. She never wasted our time. She recommended a great lawyer, helped us navigate an extremely challenging and slow-moving negotiation process with our sellers, advised us on mortgage questions, and kept her eyes on the prize throughout! She was honest and up front, patient, clear and knowledgeable. I definitely give her a 5-star review!
Thanks so much,
Linda was great to work with. We had a number of challenges to overcome and her advice was always on point and welcome. We can't say enough good things about Linda and the professionalism she displayed
We had a great experience with Linda when we sold our house. She brings great knowledge of the local market and is easy to work with. Linda is very responsive and available by phone, text and email. Linda met with us prior to listing the house and gave us some pointers on how to make the house more appealing. Once we listed the house, she provided excellent photos and description of the house. She used several media to advertise the house. When we received offers, Linda provided great advice to enable us to resolve issues and quickly execute a contract for the sale. We highly recommend Linda to help you sell your house.
William D., Seller
Linda was very professional from the first time we met her up to closing day. She also found us a home in Connecticut and assisted us on the buying end. I would recommend Linda to anyone who has real estate needs. Whether you are new to home selling/buying process or a seasoned owner she is there every step of the way. Her response time is quick and accurate.
Linda and her team are extraordinary. We contacted her first several years ago to do a brief market study. We decided to list our house this spring with her. Her marketing team produced an outstanding brochure, the house showings were well organized and respectful of our privacy, and the house sold quickly and for our asking price. We can't say enough good things about Linda and her associates!
Douglas Rothacker, Seller
Very smooth experience, very responsive, clear information for questions asked as this was our first time selling a home. Linda took us through every step of the process, organized the viewings and the acceptance of the final offer. We were extremely pleased with how the whole process went and would recommend Linda to anyone looking to sell or buy a property.
Mark E, Seller
Linda Finn is fantastic, we had lived in the same house for the past 32 years and had no real concept of what is involved with selling a house. She walked us through all stages with detailed explanations that were easy to understand. With her leadership we had an accepted offer in 17 days. Linda’s Personal Assistant, Lauren Camerino, what a great asset to the Team at Houlihan Lawrence.
Cliff & Joan Highland
Linda stuck with me throughout a long search. She understood what I was looking for. She constantly shifted gears. Her enthusiasm never waned, and was aces during the negotiating process... I felt like I truly had someone I could rely on from start to finish. It was a joy working with Linda and couldn’t recommend her more highly!
Tim H, Buyer
Linda is the best! She is very knowledgeable, realistic and professional. I would highly recommend and would use again without hesitation. She expertly helped us with technical details and negotiations.
M Bechara- Seller
Hire Linda for sale or purchase. It was pleasure and confidence inspiring working with her from first meeting through our second of two closings (as was working with her assistant, Lauren). My wife and I hired Linda based on her great feedback on Zillow for a buy+sell relocation from Putnam to Westchester (NY). She provided detailed and accurate market analysis with sufficient nuance to yield the right price for our properties respecting their unique characteristics. We ultimately bought and sold at price points admirably close to her original estimates. Brokers' and public open houses were arranged promptly as requested. Marketing materials were appropriate and professionally done, including high-quality professional photography at no extra fee. Linda was a steadfast advocate and advisor through two challenging negotiations. Overall, Linda's services made a challenging relocation happen with far less anxiety than I would have expected
Linda Finn came to look at our home and priced it perfectly we’re as we sold our home in just 2 days. She had her photographer take the most amazing photos that truly represented what our home looked like. Linda and Her assistant Lauren were rock stars. Never missed any appointments through the whole process. Linda has sold homes for friends and family for as long as She became an agent. She will NEVER let you down!
Bud Collucci, Seller
I absolutely fell in love with Linda from the first time I spoke with her on the phone through the entire transaction. She knows her stuff and you surely want her on your side when going through a home purchase. She also has a ton of very professional people in her arsenal from mortgage brokers, attorneys and inspectors etc, but you have to ask. She doesn't offer it unless you ask. Houlihan Lawrence is fortunate to have her and her assistance Lauren. They bend over backwards to take care of everything. She may not like that I will tell you she is very responsive whether at night or early morning she responds.
John Moore, Buyer
Brookfield , CT sale
"Our first home buying experience could not have went any better. Thanks to Linda’s hard work, dedication, knowledge and expertise, we closed on the perfect home just in time for the holidays. Linda made herself available when we were ready to look at homes, often times within 24-48 hours! When it came time to prepare for the closing she put us in contact with the areas finest home inspector, plumber, attorney and loan officer. She has truly built quite the network of experts and reputation for herself. If you’re looking to buy or sell a home in a quick and hassle free way, Linda will get the job done. Her pleasant manner and awesome taste in home decor is an added bonus. We could not have asked for a better real estate agent to walk us through the entire process. Linda is the best around! Thank you Linda! - Kim and Jon Kearney"
If you want to work with the best, work with Linda. As a demanding New York City client, Linda helped me find and buy my dream home in Putnam. Linda's greatest asset is her communication. She is prompt, direct and responsive, day or night. A true professional. Linda's knowledge of the area and her expertise put my concerns at ease throughout the process. Linda is one of nicest and friendliest people I've had the pleasure of working with. And most importantly, she was able to close the deal at a great price.
"Linda is personable and professional. She listens to her clients and stays true to their needs. She made us feel comfortable from the beginning to end. From coming to our home and sharing her thoughts on pricing to setting up many, many showings, to selling our home and closing within 3 months. If you want to get it done with a kind professional, Linda is the one!"
"Linda was professional and explained the entire process of home sales very clearly. She was available when needed for my questions, and responded quickly when I left messages. I had an offer on my house in less than a month after it was on the market!"

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Patterson, NY.
After interviewing several real estate agents we decided to go with Linda Finn to sell our house. It was a wise decision.

She hired a professional photographer to take pictures for the listing and they really were a big plus. In the end she fought very hard to get us the best price we could get for the sale of our house. We highly recommend Linda Finn.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Pawling, NY.
Linda was absolutely fantastic from day one! She found us a series of homes to look at which fit what we were looking for, and when we found "the one," she gave us great advice on how much to offer. From start to finish she was in constant contact with us and answered every one of our questions. She recommended a lawyer, home inspector, and mortgage company, and everyone of them was just as helpful and knowledgeable as she was. Linda is certainly in the right field, and I can guarantee that she will make all of your real estate dreams come true!

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in New Fairfield, CT.
We met Linda as the listing agent at an appointment to see a home in Patterson, NY. We fell in love with a different home in Quaker Hill that same day and knew that we wanted to work with Linda. Linda was a pleasure to work with-- efficiently navigated the process, trust-worthy, responsive, and very knowledgeable about the homes and community of Quaker Hill. After seeing Linda work as both the listing and buying agent, I highly recommend her in both capacities. She gets it done!
Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Pawling, NY.
Linda is as good as they come. We bought a weekend home in Pawling, NY and Linda represented us in the transaction. It was a competitive bid and she was able to help us win the deal. From negotiation to contract and finally through closing she was very helpful in giving advice on how best to proceed. Because we live 75 miles away from the home she was always willing be at the house to represent us during an inspection that we couldn't attend. Most importantly she is a very good and kind person and we enjoyed getting to know her. If you're looking for a house in this area we highly recommend using Linda.
Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Pawling, NY.
Linda was recommended to me by a dear friend and it was the best thing that could have happened. Linda immediately took charge and made everything from our end as the sellers very easy. She is fun to work with and answers texts and emails immediately and is extremely knowledgeable about all details of selling a piece of property. It was a joy to work with her.
Patricia and John Cowie -Pawling, NY
Working with Linda was a pleasure for my husband and me. Following the loss of our apartment in a fire, we had a very low budget for our first home, and Linda couldn't have been more patient and supportive. She accompanied us on more house visits than I can count and researched even more homes than that, and provided us with valuable guidance along the way. With the state of some of the houses we visited, she proved herself to be nothing short of brave by accompanying us! After a year of searching, she helped us nab our dream starter-home. Her knowledge of the process and her proactive work ethic helped us close quickly and smoothly. I can say that without Linda, we would have given up and lost out on our wonderful home. I can't imagine there are many professionals I would more strongly recommend.
Angela and Tom Mullane- Danbury, CT
Engaging Linda as a buyer broker, we had very specific criteria and she showed us a number of homes that met our needs. She helped us evaluate the properties and make the best decision for us. We didn't think there was going to be a deal but she made the deal happen, a testament to her years of expertise. We are both grateful and fortunate to have used Linda as our agent.
Rodney Gonzalez and Michael Ohler- Pound Ridge, NY
Working with Linda was a great experience. She made our transition both quick and smooth. We highly recommend Linda for her professional expertise.
Patti and Michael Schwartz -Brewster, NY
