Helen Cairns on September 8, 2015
Dear Lynne and Bill: Thank you so much for helping me sell my parents’ home. You took such good care of me during the process. As a former residential real estate professional I know when someone is working hard, knows their business, and cares about the client. The two of you are tip-top in my opinion and I am glad you were my real estate professionals. Best of luck to you in the future, Helen
Heather Wilson on August 31, 2015
Lynne, I wanted to be careful what all I wrote about so you are not held accountable to finding everyone a temporary living space.... :-) We appreciate all the time you spent assisting us during this process and are grateful that have been lucky enough to get an agent like you. Moving 950 miles and being in a new area, the idea of searching for a new home to move my family into was very scary and stressful! I was introduced to Lynne by another person that I didn't know all that well and was told that she would "take care of me". I was skeptical that she would understand me and my family's wants, needs, and desires in a new home along with our timeline. I am very happy to say that Lynne did take the time to listen to what I wanted in a home. She also understood that we were on a tight timeline having already sold our home in Ohio and my family was coming to join me and we had no place to stay. Not only did she listen and inquire about our home needs, Lynne also took the time to ask me about my family and to learn about us. Not at any point did I feel like she was pressuring me on any home, but truly educating me on the area and items of interest to assist me in making the right decision. Lynne kept in constant contact with me and kept me informed throughout the process, consistently working towards the goal of finding my family a place to call home. A short while into our search I had the pleasure of meeting Bill and he was equally as helpful and willing to answer any and all of my questions. The Saunders went above and beyond to help me find my family not just a house, but a home and for that we are truly grateful! -- Thank you Heather Wilson
Gina & George Fox on July 29, 2015
It has been a wonderful experience searching for a new home with Bill and Lynne Saunders.They both are very knowledgeable about real estate . Bill can tackle questions on remodel because he has had prior experience in contracting (which is really helpful when thinking about renovating a space to fit your families needs) Lynne has years of rental and real estate experience that gives her an edge on the market as well. I would highly recommend them as a "team" to find your next home. Gina and George Fox
Kim and Brian Miller on July 25, 2015
My husband and I were relocating to the Lake City, FL area from Northern Kentucky. After trying several agents of houses we liked and had no response from them, we were referred to Lynne and Bill. From the first moment I spoke with Lynne over the phone, I felt as if I had known her for a long time. She is very easy to speak with and paid attention to my needs and wants. With only having 5 days in Lake City to find a house and get under contract, Lynne and Bill were great. Spent the better of three days viewing a lot of properties (some that we found while looking at a different home). They took their time with us and made our house hunting experience an educational one with as little stress as possible under our deadline. We would recommend Lynne and Bill to anyone looking in the north central area of Florida. Thank you for helping us get into our home within my deadline to start my new position. Kim and Brian Miller
Nicklaus and Rachel Marsh on July 20, 2015
It is with great pleasure and gratitude that I may be able to leave my review of nothing short of a stellar experience working with Bill and Lynne in our search for a home that properly suited my wife and I. We recently relocated to Florida, where we were recommended to Lynne and her husband by our good friends that are originally from this area who had recently been through their home buying process as well. Lynne and Bill are extremely welcoming, friendly, professional, down to earth people who are easy to hit it off with from the start. No matter what we had to do, whether it was looking at a large list of homes to inspections and appraisals, the Saunders team was always more than helpful and without question were the most reliable people we have ever encountered. It was truly a blessing getting to be involved with them, and I ask anyone reading this who is looking to buy a home to go directly to Lynne and Bill for every question and service you may have to deal with. Once again, we thank the Saunders Family from the bottom of our hearts and wish them well in anything they do. They are without a doubt, top notch people. Nicklaus and Rachel Marsh
Shauna & Jeff Pease on July 21, 2015
Bill and Lynne Saunders, Whether you're a first time home buyer or not this reality team is second to none. Selling and/or buying a home can be a very stressful, emotional, and exhausting endeavor. When you're smart enough to make you're first step in this journey, the right choice with Lynne and Bill Saunders of Coldwell Banker, those factors are no longer a problem. From the first interaction with Lynne, hearing her sweet southern accent along with her down home hospitality and honesty, she will put you right at ease, listen to all of your needs, and work endlessly to find that perfect house to call home. She along with her husband, Bill treat their clients like family. No wonder they have been so successful in this business for so long! Thank both of you for all you've done for me, my family and friends alike. We wish you many more years of continued success, good health and happiness. . Sincerest Wishes Shauna & Jeff Pease
Madeline Ross & Reginald Jean-Jacques on July 15, 2015
As a first time home buyer there is a lot to learn. Lynne and Bill Saunders were wonderful to accommodate our busy work schedule; they met me after work and on the weekends until we found our dream home. They made sure we were informed of everything and worked with our loan officer to ensure a timely closing. Next time we buy a home it will definitely be with Bill & Lynne Saunders. – Madeline Ross & Reginald Jean-Jacques
Ken Stewart Katrina Cornwall on June 12, 2015
To anyone looking for a Realtor that will work tirelessly for you, I would be hard pressed to recommend anyone more highly than BILL & LYNNE SAUNDERS OF COLDWELL BANKER. Let me say that I am not the easiest person to work with as I am a self employed long haul trucker and only in the area for a day or two at the time. Yet, Bill & Lynne would meet with us at most anytime and travel long distances to show us properties all over three counties. I have bought and sold five homes in my lifetime and I can honestly say that no other Realtor has ever worked as hard or been more helpful than they have been with this last purchase as they consistanly went above and beyond what would be expected of anyone in their field. Thanks Bill & Lynne for your hard work, patience nad understanding, Ken Stewart Katrina Cornwall Williston, FL
Ilyse Figueroa on June 8, 2015
I recently purchased a home in Florida while being in NY. What could have been a nightmare turned out to be a great experience working with Lynne Saunders. As a realtor and person she was the best. I would highly recommend her.
Ramona Chance on June 5, 2015I
had the pleasure of working with Bill and Lynne Saunders. From the first time I contacted Lynne I made an immediate connection with her. It was our first time listing our home for sale and I had the utmost confidence in their abilities. any time that I had a question or a concern I always got an answer and they always put me at ease. The process went as smooth an easy due to their dedication, knowledge and experience. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends or acquaintances looking to buy or sell. Ramona Chance
Rachel and John Butterfield on May 19, 2015
My husband and I recently purchased our first home. Understandably, we were confused and overwhelmed. Luckily, we chose Bill and Lynne Saunders as our real estate agents, who guided us through the entire process, taking time to field our calls and answer all our questions. They were always available, no matter when a question arose. If I asked a question they did not know the answer to, they directed me to the right place or researched and found the answerto my questions. I could not imagine ever going through this process without the wonderful guidance of Bill and Lynne. Not only were they easy to reach, they were courteous, informed, and hard-working. They were our advocates through the whole process. Because of them, we were able to purchase our perfect home with little to no stress. I would recommend Lynne and Bill in a heartbeat to family and friends, with no doubt Lynne and Bill will do everything in their power to make anyone's home buying experience as easy and pleasant as ours. Rachel and John Butterfield
Nico Pratt on April 25, 2015
I moved to Gainesville about 2 months ago and I am already in a house I LOVE thanks to Lynne Saunders.I wasn't sure where I wanted to end up because Iknew absolutely nothing about the city and relocated here for work. Lynne was so intuitive from the very beginning and she made sure that she tailored my house hunt just for me. I told her what was important (she even asked the right questions to help me figure that out) and within hours of our first conversation, she had a list of homes for me. I found the perfect place the first time she brought me out, and she took care of every last detail from there. Lynne even found a local lender that streamlined the home buying process by being easy to work with and I closed in just 28 days! I have had bad experiences in the past with realtors, but I really can't say enough positive things about Mr. & Mrs. Saunders. Here's the bottom line: if you want someone who genuinely cares about helping people, not just sales, they are the real deal. I was incredibly lucky to have the good fortune of meeting Lynne. I would recommend her to all of my family, friends and anyone else looking for a true professional that goes the extra mile. I truly mean every word. Thank you for everything. Nico Pratt
Natalie & John Chichetto on April 25, 2015
We were first time buyers when we started our process of buying a home, and really didn't know what to expect from the journey. Lynne and Bill were so helpful in guiding us along the way. We went through alot of ups and downs, and at some point even felt like maybe buying a home was just not going to happen. But Lynne and Bill were so comforting and assuring that the process is hard for everyone. They are SUPER DOWN TO EARTH, and tell you like it is. We areally appreciate their professionalism that was coupled with wit and humor! This made us feel very comfortable and we really felt like they had our backs! When we eventually found a house that we loved, they fought for us to get repairs and a price that was right! We could not imagine working with any other Realtors! Now we just have to convince them to help us paint, cook, and raise our family! Natalie Kelso Chichetto, MSW
Amy Pratt on April 24, 2015
For me, both Lynne Saunders and her husband Bill Saunders have been incredibly helpful in finding the perfect piece of property. They truly care about their client's well being and satisfaction. Their devotion and reliability was unmatched by other realtors I have experienced in the past. I could always count on them to return my calls and meet me according to my schedule. They go above and beyond for their clients in every way. It is their mission to not only find a suitable piece of property to meet their client's needs but one their client will cherish. The Saunders love what they do and it is reflected in their work. I would certainly recommend Lynne and Bill to anyone who wants to know their realtor is not just in it for the money, but for the true happiness of their clients. Thank you again for everything Sincerely, Amy Pratt
Terry Spencer on April 25, 2015
Bill and Lynne are wonderful people to work with and did a great job at helping me find my new home! They are very familiar with the area they work in and are always eager to meet to show houses. They were very quick to respond and happy to meet my needs. I HIGHLY recommend them and will definitely be using them again in the future! Bill and Lynne are professional, prompt, courteous, and helpful. Even though I lost the bid I would use them again. They were respectful of ethics. They went out of their way to find properties that matched my tastes and price range, even pre - screening places of interest for me. Terry Spencer DVM Gainesville, FL
Larry and Gail Klein on April 4, 2015
Lynne Saunders was instrumental in making our dream a reality. She patiently and efficiently traveled with us from "just looking" to closing on our new home. We were carefully and competently guided through all the required processes and the interactions that are necessary to buy property. Lynne is the perfect partner on that journey no matter how many detours the journey takes. Larry and Gail Klein
ED and Dessie on March 15, 2015
"We were quite pleased with Lynne and Bill with their comminment to our finding just the right acreage. After hours, days and even weeks of our searching and their perserverance, we found the right spot. We found the perfect spot and highly recooomend their services. They both make themselves avaiable to your schedule which is what we needed most, being out of Towner's. Thank you Lynne and BIll for being there, holding our hands, listening to our complaints, and just all the reassurance and the great advice you both provided." ED and Dessie
Ben and Kailey Pickels on February 25, 2015
We cannot thank Mr. Bill & Mrs. Lynne Saunders enough with assisting us in the purchasing of our property. The process was simple and stress free with the Saunders because they were always available to answer any questions we had. The love and dedication that was shown during our experience shows how much they truly care about their customers and their job! Sincerely, Ben and Kailey Pickels
Betsy and Adam Langan on February 21, 2017
We recently purchased our dream home; a charming southern house that sits on 20 acres of property. This is the first home my husband and I bought together and naturallcywe had some anxiety and lots of questions. The support we got from Bill and Lynne Saunders with Coldwell Banker was friendly, honest, genuine and professional. From the time we called to inquire they were quick to respond, interested in our needs/wants, and gave professional, genuine advise without any pressure. We hit a few bumps in the road, as most home buying processes do and we're so glad that we had the Saunders to represent and support us. Day or night they were available to talk, resolve issues, or line up necessary 3rd parties to get the task at hand done. They will do whatever it takes to support you and communicate in a timely manner throughout the entire home buying process. We feel truly blessed to have met Bill and Lynne Saunders; having them by our side in purchasing our first home made our dream that much more of a reality. Thank you Bill and Lynne Saunders, best Realtors around! Hugs, Betsy & Adam
Sean Campbell on February 10, 2015
Bill and Lynne were great to work with and made the house buying process very smooth. I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling a property. 100% satisfied with all our interactions. Sean Campbell
Gene Arguli on February 9, 2015
Lynne, I can't thank you enough for all of the hard work and hours you put in to find the perfect house for us. I'm excited about moving and even mowing the lawn is great because it's everything I was looking for. None of this would have been possible without your dedication to finding us a perfect home! Thank you and looking forward to a BBQ with you and Bill. Gene
Chris Ringenberg on January 25, 2015
I had the privilege of working with Bill and Lynne Saunders as my realtor when looking to purchase a home in the High Springs/Alachua area of Alachua County. Bill and Lynne’s knowledge about real estate is multi-faceted and they are most certainly able to do more than the average agent. I appreciated their ability to advise me on finding the perfect home for me. Whenever I had questions from the home inspection to the final closing, they were there to help and support me in every possible way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bill and Lynne to any person who is looking to buy or sell a home, as well as seek their service in any of my future real estate transactions. Sincerely, Chris Ringenberg Alachua, FL
Barbara Ramah on January 15, 2015
I was looking to move from Michigan to Keystone Heights and contacted Lynne. We kept in contact and then when I was coming to Florida in October I called her and told here when I was coming...She lined up some houses to look at, after I told her what I was looking for and when I got here, the next day we went looking at houses. Within a week, I found the house I wanted, thanks to Lynne. After I signed papers and unloaded my car, her and Bill came by and loaned me a television to use until I can get my things moved here. They are great people and go beyond what realtors do now days. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you for your patience Lynne and Bill. Barbara Ramah
Kristina Roebuck on January 10, 2015
Bill and Lynne Saunders make the home buying process less daunting and more enjoyable with their amazing personalities. We appreciate everything they've done for us, and you will, too!
John & Amelia Nichols on December 21, 2014
When my husband and I started to look for a home for our family in September, we had a difficult time finding realtors to show us homes- due to not showing homes in the evening, not on weekends, etc....Until I called Lynne She actually answered her phone, and was so friendly and energetic! Within a short time we were in to see the first home we wanted to view. We expressed to her the difficulty that we had with trying to view homes, and she was immediately on the phone calling around to other homes that we wanted to see. She was genuinely interested in getting us in to see the homes we wanted to see. We KNEW that we wanted HER to help us find our new home. She even came out with her husband, her daughter, and their dog to show us a home in the evening!!! We finally found the perfect home for our family, and The Saunders were so integral in finding that home for us. They are hardworking, loyal, honest, courteous and helpful. We would recommend Lynne and Bill Saunders to anyone who is looking to find their perfect home. Amelia Nichols GO GATORS!!
Aimee Haines on December 3, 2014
Bill and Lynne were very helpful throughout this process. As a first time homeowner I didn't really know what to expect or what I could afford. They gave me tips on how to find out the average utility bill and to take into consideration how many people were living there during the time frame. We got close on a couple of homes before we found the one, but once we did it was easy peasy. They had a home inspector to recommend. Were able to do most communication thru e-mail and text which was great for me since I have one of those jobs where I cannot receive personal phone calls at work. Thank you, Aimee
Bob Brown on November 10, 2014
Bill and Lynne have been fantastic to work with. I have worked with them for just over 2 months. I was really picky in what I was looking for but they were able to listen to me and help me find exactly what I was looking for. I would gladly recommend them to any one looking to buy or sell a house. Bob Brown
Lewis Little on September 26, 2014
Bill & Lynne Saunders are THE BEST REALTORS I have worked with. Owning close to a dozen rental properties, sales and purchases are a yearly task and no one has done it better than this team. In July I set out to purchase a home for my family. After working with a handful of realtors I had 2 unsuccessful contracts. I was recommended to Bill & Lynne. They immediately began the search and even showed me property that evening. Within a month's time I made an offer and a few weeks later we clsoed on a magnificent home for my famiy and young daughter. I could't be more satisfied with their help and dedication. Lewis Little
Chris and Haley Tipton on September 12, 2014
Lynne and Bill Saunders made buying a home easy. They took our first home buying experience and made it enjoyable and stress free. When bumps in the road came during the closing process they were there for us like family and assured us during the entire journey. We would give any family member or friend our recommendation to use them. We know we will in the future. Chris and Haley Tipton
Megan Robertson on June 24, 2014
When I first started looking for a home to buy with my fiance, I was so stressed out because we are first time home buyers and we had a deadline of July 1st! As soon as I requested information on a home, Lynne called me within 2 minutes and ever since then, she has been the biggest help. They have gone way above and beyond to make sure that we saw every house in our price range and kept in contact with me on a daily basis and really made me feel so much better. They put their clients first without a doubt. They helped us find the perfect home within 10 days of contacting us! I know that if we EVER go to buy a home again, we will be contacting Bill and Lynne ASAP! Thank you so much! Lynne is amazing.
Stephanie Daniel on May 27, 2014
Bill and Lynne Saunders were absolutely a dream in helping my husband and I find the perfect home for our family. From the start, they responded to my inquiry for more information within minutes. The husband and wife team worked together nicely in helping us fulfill each of the requirements we had in a new home. They were always willing and able to answer all of our questions. Being first time homebuyers, my husband and I weren't knowledgeable with the process at all. They even interrupted their own personal time in order to ensure we were able to see a home that ended up fulfilling our dream and then some. My husband and I recommend Bill and Lynne Saunders to anyone looking for a hardworking, honest, and loyal realtor to help them find the perfect home.
Larry and Sarah Stewart on April 29, 2014
Bill and Lynne Sarah and I would like to thank both of you very much in helping us obtain this property. You both worked very hard for us and we appreciate it. We will not hesitate to tell any one to look you guys up if they need realtors. Again Thank you Larry and Sarah Stewart
Don Flemming on April 22, 2014
We were looking for a 2nd home in Gainesville on Realtor.com. We found some homes that we were interested in and wanted to see. When I clicked more information on one of the properties, in less than 10 minutes, we received a call from Lynne. We made plans with the Saunders to visit these properties. They took me and my wife to all the properties that we wanted to see plus additional homes that they thought we would be interested in. We contracted one of the homes that they recommended that wasn't on our original list! Our experience with Lynne and Bill has been fabulous. Truly professional in what they do but also folks that we can call friends. Don Fleming April 2014 Gainesville, FL
Pam Worsham on September 29, 2015
I just wanted to thank you for the extra effort you put into getting me into a house that met my needs, and with such a short window of tine in which to do it. I truly appreciate the prompt attention you gave to every request from me, the mortgage company, or the seller. You know I wouldn't have been able to do it without you. If you ever need to use me as a reference, let me know. I would be happy to let others know the excellent quality of work they can look forward to when working with you. Thanks again, Pam
JP Hood on October 13, 2015
We had the pleasure of working with Lynne as she introduced us to the buyers of our home. Although she represented her clients in the purchase, my wife and I felt as if she were our realtor as well. She is very knowledgeable and professional and no matter if you are buying or selling, I recommend her as your agent. -JP Hood
Lilly Acosta on October 14, 2015
Lynne Saunders is the best. From the very first day when she showed us the house we knew we wanted to work with her. She has excellent communication skills and really knows her business. Through the 40 days it took from seeing the house to closing day Lynne made us feel like she had no other customer besides us. She answered phone calls, text messages, and emails almost instantly every single time, and that alone makes her stand out already because most other realtors would let calls go to their voicemails and would keep you waiting for a reply. Lynne answers all questions and doubts with respect, no matter how silly they sound and has the gift to make you feel comfortable and supported. We were buying our first house, so we had plenty of questions and a lot of anxiety, but just having her as our realtor made all the difference. Once we decided that we wanted the house, she immediately found us a house inspector to come next morning to check the house, and we signed a contract within hours with her negotiating the price for us. Along the way there were some other kind of inspections and repairs to be met to get the loan, and Lynne was always outstandingly expedited in getting everything done in no time. She is very knowledgeable of everything real estate related and is a truly exceptional people’s person you definitely want to work with when looking for a house. On a personal note, Lynne made us feel supported, at ease, and that she really cared. We thank her from the bottom of our hearts for helping us buy our first house in the most personable manner. I couldn’t recommend her enough. If you are in need of a real estate agent, then you must call Lynne Saunders.
Clarence and Sharonda Harris on October 25, 2015
Lynne, as we approach month three of settling into our new home, we find ourselves still falling in love with our new home, neighborhood and our move to Gainesville FL. We just wanted to take this time and reach out to you and thankyou again for making this transition from Pittsburg Pa .to Gainesville FL. Your first hand knowledge of the school systems, housing market and specefic neighborhoods were topics that were most helpful to us. As"out of towners" we couldn't have done it with out you. In addition, you and Bill made us feel welcomed into the community when you perssonally came to our home to check on us days after we moved in. I still remember Bill's explanation of the street system in Gainesville. LOL !!! Again Thank you for all that you have done for Sharonda and I!! Clarence and Sharonda Harris
Jerome and Debbie Millman on October 26, 2015
We first met Lynne and Bill last Dec, when we decided to move from Atlanta to Gainesville. Throughout the whole process, from our initial ideas, to breaking ground for our dream house, they have been extremely helpful. Their suggestions, as well as their expert knowledge of the area have been invaluable. From start to finish they guided us thru the home buying process with patience and professionalism. We highly recommend Lynnea nd Bill to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Gainesville area. Jerome and Debbie Millman
Debbie Muga on October 25, 2015
I cannot say enough good things about this dynamic duo, Bill and Lynne Saunders. Being a novice home buyer, I really appreciated the insight and advice given. With their help, I was able to purchase my property like a pro. Lynne was invaluable with her experience and advice and I will be forever grateful. I highly recommend using this team for any real estate needs you may have. Debbie Muga
Melissa Robinson on January 4, 2016
Bill and Lynne Saunders are a true treasure in the Real Esate Business. They helped me find my perfect first home. The Saunders listened to me and were able to discern what I wanted before I even knew. They were helpful throughout the whole course and answered all of my first time homebuyer's questions. They also put me at ease during a stressful process for any homebuyer. I would recommend them to anyone and if needed, in the futrure, use their expertise again. I greatly appreciate all the help and advice they provided. Melissa Robinson
Weston Hull on January 21, 2016
Lynne and Bill, Thank you for your help with my recent house purchase. With your help and know how we were able to close on my new house in Lake City, Florida in record time. Both of you are punctual, stylish, have excellent follow-through, and are very personable. I do really appreciate your assistance after business hours and during weekends to meet my schedule needs. It was a real pleasure working with the both of you. Once again, thank you! Weston H.
Joel Maldonado on January 22, 2016
We love our new home! My wife and me were lookinf for homes for months and we didn't find one that we both like. We are relatively new in the Alachua County and in Florida, and since is the second time we buy a house, we knew that with the help of experts it would be easier to find the right one. Someone referred us to Bill and Lynne, and since we met them, they were very friendly and patient with our indecision. They guided us to the houses that match our needs and our taste. We saw many used and new houses in various locations. Bill and Lynne communicated continuously by email or phone to provide additional houses for us to look at. They were available to set appointments at our convenience. Finally, Bill and Lynne helped us, in an enjoyable way, to find the perfect house for our family and also the best deal. We love our new home. Joel Maldonado
Gainesville Realtor on January 26, 2016

Very happy it ended this way :) Another Realtor in Gainesville God is Good
Michelle and Kevin Tevebaugh on January 29, 2016
BEST REALTORS!!!! Me and my husband moved here recently from Texas and this would not have been as smooth and easy as it was if it was not for Lynne & Bill Saunders! Especially Lynne was a champion through all this, one day I contacted her via phone and told her "we will be down there for one weekend and one weekend only, we would like to look at A LOT Of houses, can you hang with us? This will be very stressful and hectic and we need to find a house that we all love!" She responded with a solid "yes" and so I kept bombarding her with houses we wanted her to line up for us all over the Greater Gainesville Area - and she did. We came on a Saturday, looked at A LOT of houses and put an offer in on our dream house Sunday! They did it - with NO compromises, they found us our dream house! We moved here 3 weeks ago and could not be happier! If it wasn't for our wonderful realtors Lynne & Bill I'm sure this would have been a lot harder! They took all the work from us and all we had to do is move in and put our feet up! Thank you guys! We love you! MICHELLE & KEVIN T. Keystone Heights Florida
Lucas and Jackie Ford on February 14, 2016
Lynne and Bill Saunders, Many thanks to you for being so diligent with us by selling us this house as we love it. You sure had to work hard to make this sale as I was not for it but my wife was, but now I to love it. Your handling of this sale all the way through was wonderful and your follow up was even more so. This home is way smarter than I am but my young wife can pretty well figure most of it out. I can go on and on about your accolades with this transaction. P S Your girls were terrific as this almost looks like a home now inside. Another thank you and again. You the goodest Realtor. Lucas and Jackie

Tricia & Joshua Lashley on February 16, 2016
Dear Prospective Homebuyers, My husband and I recently had the pleasure of buying our first home. We had a very pleasant experience, Lynne Saunders treated us like family! It is our immense pleasure to recommend Lynne Saunders as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. Lynne took notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home as well as our budget limitations. She is highly talented technologically and used all of her resources to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale. She knows the Gainesville area like the back of her hand. She did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs. We found Lynne to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all of my phone calls and text messages the same day, most of the time within minutes. We never felt neglected or unimportant, even with all of the questions and inquiries of a first time home buyer. She is also highly personable with an great personality. Lynne helped us come up with a deal that was good for us and the seller as well. Throughout our home buying process, she stayed in touch with us every step ofthe way. We did not just buy a home, I believe we have made a friend. We are pleased to recommend Lynne Saunders to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We have given her name to a few people already. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in Real estate agents. Sincerely, Tricia & Joshua Lashley Happy Homeowners
Jorge Tamayo on February 16, 2016
Dear Mrs. Saunders, I also thank you for helping my family by communicating our needs (and my oversight) to Mr and Mrs Northway. In doing so, you acted against your personal interest by putting aside monetary gain and instead helping some people you don't even know. I am overcome with gratitude and a sense of honor to have bumped into people such as yourself and the Northway family and we are thankful from the core of our hearts Thank You all so very much. Sincerely, Jorge A. Tamayo

My family and I were looking to purchase a new home in Trenton. Lynne was quick to respond to my emails and phone calls. She and Bill took a whole Saturday and Sunday looking at 2 beautiful homes. They found one and I sent one. They were so helpful and fun to be around. We just hit it off from the beginning. They really do treat you like family. Both are very knowledgable about the home buying process. I would recommend this TEAM to anyone looking to buy a new home.
Keith and Amanda Lemmon on February 29, 2016
Dear Bill and Lynne Our best wishes for much success. We would like to express our appreciation towards your professionalism and working ethics, while selling our spec home in Alachua. As a small builder corporation, selling our product is one of our biggest challenges. Lynne’s attitude towards us was always calm and highly assuring without crazy requests to stage or “re-condition” the house. She brought several prospects to the table and she would make wise suggestions to our benefit. Closing day was a breeze; she made sure all paperwork was in order and in place, prior to us arriving to the Closing Agent. We most certainly will recommend your services. Once again, thank you for a job well done. Yours very truly, Keith and Amanda Lemmon
Ted and Judy Northway on March 18, 2016
An Adventure of a Life-Time We had been joking about moving to another state as I'm sure many people do, but when our son was transferred to Alachua, Fl, we began to seriously ask courselves, "Why not us?" So, we put our home of 30 plus years on the market. Our realtor put in a request for a relocation expert in Florida and we soon received a call from Lynne Saunders to introduce herself to us. From the very beginning, we felt as though we were long-time friends. She listened to our needs, concerns and a lot of fears about doing such a long distance change. Before we even could visit Florida, she and her husband Bill, met with our son, who had started his new job in Alachua, to look at houses on our behalf. They talked to us on their walk-throughs and we felt as if we were there as well. When at last we had 3 days in Florida, Lynne had homes ready to go for us to see. The second day was even better because Lynne knew what we liked even more. She worked diligently on our behalf and we left Sunday morning with a top 3 list and paperwork started on our first pick. Her professionalism and care were a Godsend to us, 2 people who hadn't navigated the real estate field for over 30 years. Any hurdle we came across she quickly solved or had a ready alternative option. We could NOT gave done this without her help and will be forever in her debt. We can, without reservation, recommend Lynne Saunders as Coldwell Banker top agent serving the greater Gainesville/Alachua County area. Sincerely, Ted and Judy Northway
Abram Lafferty on March 20, 2016
Working with Lynne and BIll to find my home was a pleasure. Lynne is very knowledgable, dedicated and thorough. Her knowledge of the area and buying process was invaluable to me as a fist time buyer. She did an excellent job of making me comfortable with the whole process. She kept up constant commiunication between myself, the sellers, and the bank to ensure everything was taken care of. Lynne very quickly identified the type of property I was looking for and made the most of my time. She was very accommodating in scheduling and always very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. I highly reccommed working with Lynne and Bill Saunders. Abram Lafferty

Gainesville Peer Respite on April 10, 2016l
Dear Lynne, Gainesville Peer Respite is so lucky to have you as the realtor for the purchase of our property at 728 NE University Ave. We couldn’t have purchased it without you going the extra mile for us! I looked up the definition of “realtor” and it said “agent for sale of land or property.” That describes only the smallest part of what you did for us! Perhaps “magician” would be a better name for you, as contacting the seller in Alaska, and three busy graduate student tenants took some magic! Perhaps “cheer-leader” would be it, as your belief that this was the right house for us helped so much as the process dragged on! Maybe you should be called “wise guru of properties” as your patience and persistence, both with us as we struggled with obtaining final funding, and with the seller and his tenants was amazing. I’m sure we set a record taking 8 months from first visit of the house to closing! Thank you for hanging in there with us, and your unfailing belief in our mission. Gainesville Peer Respite plans to be open for business this July, offering a place of support, empathy and peer companionship for people who are experiencing or have experienced extreme states of mental and emotional distress. It will save lives and change lives. It could not have happened without your support! Thank you so much, Jackie Davis President, Board of Directors Gainesville Peer Respite, Inc
Kelsey & Zachary Prine on April 30, 2016
Lynne, You two have been nothing but an answered prayer for Zachary and I cannot thank you enough for everything y’all have done to help us find our perfect home! We are loving every minute of being in this home. This doesn’t really do y’all justice, but here ya go! Again, thank you for everything! I have known the Saunders for years as they are from my hometown in Madison, Florida, and I was delighted to hear the two were in the Real Estate business in the Alachua County area. I reached out to Lynne and she seemed just as excited as I was to find the perfect first home for my husband and I. Lynne and Bill were there for us throughout every single step of the way, explaining every aspect of the process in a way that we both understood. After explaining what we were looking for in a home it did not take them long to find it. When it came to making an offer Bill and Lynne made sure we were comfortable with everything about the offer and always made themselves available when we had questions. We chose not to close on our new home for 60 days, which was a really long wait, but Lynne contacted us multiple times during that wait just to check in and make sure we didn’t have any more questions and to let us know what the next step was. The Saunders definitely made the process as stress-free as it could have been for us, which was definitely an answered prayer, and we would highly recommend this team to anyone in the market for a new home!
Wayne and KIm Farr on June 6, 2016
Bill and Lynne, We would like to thank you for all of your help with the process of buying our property. We found the process to be seamless from start to finish and we realize that it was seamless due to your dedication, knowledge and kindness. We always got prompt return of phone calls and quick answers to all of our questions. From the first day we called inquiring about the property we talked with one or both of you almost everyday and appreciate all the guidance you both provided from start to finish. Thank you again, we would gladly work with you both in the future and would undoubtedly recommend you to family and friends. Sincerely, Wayne and Kim Farr
Ted and Cynthia Ensmiinger on June 21, 2016
Dear Bill and Lynne, Cynthia and I wanted to drop you a short note to let you know that we have just about settled in to our new home in the mountains. It's a wonderful feeling to know that we have found, and are living in, our "forever" home. What a journey it has been! As you know, we had our house in Keystone Heights on the market for almost two years. We were at the point of saying that perhaps that home was supposed to be our "forever" home. Both of us along with the two of you, worked very hard to find a buyer, but to know avail. Sometimes, that just happens. When all seemed like it was lost, and at the very last minute, you were able to find us a willing and capable buyer! And our dream of retiring to the mountains and closer to family became a reality! Today, some three months later, as we sit here totally enjoying our new home, we pause and reflect on how blessed we are and how none of what we are enjoying today would have happened without your success in selling our home! We are living our dream, and hope that you are as well. Thank you for all that you did to sell our home in Keystone Heights! Kind regards always, Ted and Cynthia Ensminger
Zeineddines on July 15, 2016
Dear Lynne & Bill, Thank you for helping us make our move to Gainesville so much easier. Not only did you ensure that we picked the best house for us, but you stayed with us even after the process was over to put a hand into the little details that followed. We now have new friends in Gainesville and have more confidence than we expected to have living here before coming into contact with you. Once again, thanks for making it possible. Love, The Zeineddines
Allison Forrest on July 16, 2016
II was looking to purchase my first home in Gainesville and did not know the area too well after living here for school and my job. I looked for a REALTOR that focused on the buyer and could assist me through this difficult process. Bill and Lynne Saunders SURPASSED the AMAZING reviews I read!! Their specialties are truly their passion for people, excellent communication skills and their assistance with me purchasing my first home. I truly could not have gone through this without them! They are the dynamic duo! They treated me like their daughter and helped me with anything I needed. They both work quickly and efficiently on everything and will answer your questions instantly and believe me, I had plenty of questions. They helped me connect with other vendors and companies in Gainesville to assist hrough this process and gave me great referrals. They were always there for me and showed sincere support through the adventure and even offered to assist with appliance and equipment questions even after I moved in which amazed me. I HIGHLY recommend Bill & Lynne Saunders to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. They are wonderful people and will care about you and make sure this is a fun and non-stressful process for you. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU DID FOR ME!!!-- Allison Forrest Coordinator, Career Development; University Athletic Association, Inc., University of Florida UF LEAD HIE 2016 Cohort University of Florida (M.S.

Justin Clark on August 20, 2016
Lynne & Bill Saunders Help Me Buy My First House! Lynne and Bill has my highest recommendation as a Realtor. I was a first time buyer and didn’t know what to expect. They were patient and knowledgeable when answering any questions that I had. They made sure I had a solid understanding of all the processes. They helped me find the perfect home in the right part of town and then helped me find a better lender to ensure everything went smoothly. They were ready to assist me during the entire mortgage process. If you are looking for a Realtor call Lynne and Bill Saunders. THANK YOU LYNNE AND BILL FOR EVERYTHING! Justin Clark
Gary and Misty Taylor on August 23, 2016
Lynne and Bill Saunders helped us to buy our home when we moved to Florida and also helped us sell it when my husband was relocated. They were very friendly and professional during both processes. I would highly recommend them for your buying and sales needs in the housing market. Gary and Misty Taylor
Ray and Bei Wright on September 21, 2016
Lynne is super helpful during the whole process. She helped us finding the right house and dealing with the lender. Highly recommend Lynne to anyone out there looking for an agent who will help you along the complex of buying a house. Ray and Bei Wright
John and Dusti Small on September 27, 2016
My husband and I are in the process of marketing our house long distance, and I'm not sure what we would do without an eager and energetic team like Bill and Lynne to help us get it ready to sell. They are personable, pleasant, and attune to all forms of communication to make this as smooth and painless a process as possible. They've gone above and beyond at our convenience to meet with us on a holiday, get our yard cleaned up, unlock the house for services to be performed, and arrange for the house to be pressure-washed. I am very impressed by their dedication to us as their client.
Rafael & Doris Nin on September 27, 2016
Mr. and Mrs. Saunders, or more to our liking, Bill and Lynne, have been our Real Estate brokers and friends for six or seven years. During that time they have assisted us in buying or selling four residential units in the range of $500,000 to $1,200,000, all in the city of Gainesville, FL. One of them was a rental with an option to buy, which option was exercised just recently. We can attest to their professionalism and knowledge of the trade and market. But above all, their personal attention to all our needs and their availability any time, no mater how insignificant or important the issue. Please call us at 787-366-5505 or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further information or have any questions.
Jeremy and Sohelia on May 31, 2014
I am so happy that you and Bill were introduced into our lives. U are the BEST! Thank you for everything you have done. Thank you so much for making this happen. Kids are loving the house too. Bill and Lynne were very quick to respond to our first inquiry (within minutes) and have been diligent in searching for a house for us. They are in contact regularly and didn't give up on us despite limitations that are challenging to the area we're in. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy a house.
Reid and Kerry Spears on September 27, 2016
Lynne and Bill helped my wife and I find the perfect home in Gainesville. They listened to what we were looking for and showed us exactly the types of homes that worked for us and our budget. We were first-time home buyers, but Lynne and Bill guided us through process and everything went smoothly. We were new to Gainesville and not familiar with the area, but I am confident we found the perfect house in a neighborhood that suits us well. Not only did they help us find a home, they helped us make connections personally and professionally which is invaluable in a new city. We would highly recommend Lynne and Bill at Coldwell!
Ron Macey on September 27, 2017
Bill and Lynne were very helpful and knowledgeable. Treated us like family. It has been a very pleasurable experience. Bill and Lynne are the consummate professionals. Honest, personable, patient, sincere, and knowledgable of the local market place (Gator alums...doesn't get better n that!). When I first looked around for an agent and said I was an investor from out of state, I had a number of the agents hang up on me. Bill and Lynne couldn't have been more helpful and generous with their time and we now not only have a great business relationship, but I consider them to be friends.
Justin and Brittany on September 27, 2016
Bill and Lynne were both very helpful with finding my family a perfect home in Gainesville, Florida. As soon as I inquired about a property, Lynne called within minutes to discuss the details with me. She was very knowledgeable about the area and homes that I was interested in. We narrowed our search down together and she helped us find our dream home. The whole process went much smoother than I expected and I highly recommend Bill and Lynne Saunders of Coldwell Banker M.M. Parrish when you begin your search for a new home!
I would highly recommended Lynne as your real estate agent. She not only works hard to find you a house but also insures closing will happen even when your mortgage lender is being problematic. In addition, she will help make your house a home by providing recommendations for affordable home improvements. Thanks Lynne, for your assistance in helping me find my new home. Alberta Davis
Jonah and Roberta Shapiro on March 19, 2014
Very professional and thorough, not only did they make the process easier but went above and beyond what one would normally expect. We were very impressed by their presentation of prospective properties and the way they fought for the closing price, their skills made purchasing a house seem downright simple. We wholeheartedly recommend Bill and Lynne Saunders to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
Greg and Danielle Meissner on September 27, 2016
Bill & Lynne are by far the greatest business duo you could ask for! Right from the start their professionalism is apparent. We found they, together or individually, always had our best interests at hand, and dealt with issues as they arose. Since the first day we started working with them, there was a connection & a great friendship was started. So what a better way to find your next dream home than with your friends!!
Jason and Kate Hutchinson on September 27, 2016
Lynne and Bill, Thank you guys so much for sticking with it and finding us the home we wanted. After the first deal fell through because of the flood zone we were ready to give up but you and Bill made us get back up and start looking again. We really feel like we had the very best representation as buyers with you guys and I think that Bill’s unique understand of larger tracks of land really helped out a lot in getting us to the closing table along with you looking out for our interest in the process. Also we never would have expected it but we feel like we made a couple new friends after our 6 months of waiting for just the right house.
Jeanne Wilkson on September 27, 2016
What can I say but “WOW”? This awesome couple – Lynne and Bill Saunders, in my opinion, goes out of their way to help a house seeker buy the house of their dreams. From the start, Lynne and Bill guided us on how to get pre-approval, the bid, the recommendation and guidance on inspections to have completed, the loan process right down to the day of closing. They listened to me rant, rave and carry on like an idiot. At some point, they had more faith than I did that we would ever get into the house, now “Our Home”. Any one that asks me who I believe to be good realtors, it would be the Saunders. If they don’t ask, it’s still the Saunders. Team Saunders will go above and beyond so that you CAN live in the house of your dreams.
Bill and Lynne are true professionals with integrity. They are wonderful, honest people who have a passion for their work and their community. We would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, at any price point.
Mike on September 28, 2016Lynne and Bill were wonderful. They helped my wife and I find and evaluate rental investment properties in the Gainesville area. I'm not from Gainesville and they took the time to explain the process. Their knowledge and experience saved me a tremendous amount of time. They were also quick to respond to any questions I had. Highly recommend! Mike September 28, 2016
Daniel and Elise Albritton on September 29, 2016
We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Lynne Saunders as our real estate agent. She made our home buying experience extremely pleasant. She was always professional, quick to answer emails or phone calls/ texts, and a pleasure to work with. Even after the closing of our home, she was available to answer question and help us since we were new to the area. We would highly recommend Lynne Saunders, and look forward to working with her in the future. Sincerely, Daniel and Elise Albritton
Kiki and Waly Nin on October 3, 2016
Bill and Lynne Saunders were everything we were looking for in a realtor and more. We have known Lynne and Bill for more than 5yrs and were not disappointed with their services. We had a busy schedule, and a newborn and they were always flexible with meeting dates and open-houses. They evaluated all of our needs as sellers and got to know the house well enough to make them passionate when selling the house, as if it was their own. They were diligent and anticipated all of our needs especially at time of the closing making it a smooth transaction between the buyers and us, the sellers. If you are looking to list a house or are in need of a Realtor... Then Lynne and Bill are who you are looking for.
Manuel and Annette on October 3, 2016
Hi Lynne and Bill, We are so thankful for all your help that you both extended to us in selling our farm property. You went out of your way to solve some of the issues that always confront the seller as well as buyer in this kind of transaction. We have no regrets in choosing you as our realtor. Sincerely, Annette and Manuel
Jason and Megan Bierman on October 14, 2016
We were so fortunate to have found Lynne and Bill when we moved to Gainesville. As our Realtor, they helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. In short, they were always on our side working to make our house purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Lynne was that no matter what time of day (or night) if I had a question Lynne would always answer and she never sounded frustrated with me no matter how silly my questions might have been. My wife Megan and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.
Debbie Cole on October 15, 2016
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bill and Lynne Saunders of Coldwell Banker Realty for there great efforts in helping our family find a home in Gainesville, FL. Bill and Lynne went above and beyond themselves to give us personalized, direct service as realtors to help in our efforts of home searching. They both responded quickly to our voicemails, emails and texts. They listened to what our needs and desires were on home buying and without prompting sent us listings that could be a match. They also took any listing we would find and made every effort to allow us to view the home if it was not already off the market. They met us a different hours and even on weekends to help speed our process along as our schedules were varied. They were honest about everything from the home, to neighborhood and finding us value within our budget. I have no hesitation in recommending both Lynne and Bill Saunders as a realtor of choice. Superb Thanks- The Coles
Bill and Laura Morris on October 17, 2016
We are so thankful that we found Bill and Lynne Saunders to be our Realtors .They went above and beyond our expectations for a realtor spending countless weekends from early morning to late evenings until we found our perfect property. They made our home buying experience a real pleasure . We would highly recommend them. Bill & Laura Morris
Emily Isom on October 18, 2016
Lynne and Bill were very helpful when my husband and I were looking for our home. We were first time home buyers and felt overwhelmed with all of the steps that go into purchasing a home. Thankfully, Lynne was always willing to explain everything in detail. Her knowledge of the housing market was extensive, from considering how much to offer to what we could be expecting to spend in home improvements. My husband and I really appreciated how involved Lynne was with the entire process, from setting up multiple homes to visit all the way until the closing day whenever an error was made by the attorney that Lynne caught in time before the paperwork was submitted. We are very happy with our new home and we know that we would not have been successful without Lynne and Bill.
Eric D on September 19, 2016
Bill and Lynne are wonderful people to work with and did a great job at helping me find my new home! They are very familiar with the area they work in and are always eager to meet to show houses. They were very quick to respond and happy to meet my needs. I HIGHLY recommend them and will definitely be using them again in the future!
Carol Armstrong on October 27, 2016
Dear Lynne & Bill, Thank you for selling my late father's parcel of land in Gilchridt County. My brother and I had contacted other Realtors who said (1) there is no market for it, (2) they don't want to take the listing and spend money for signs and advertising because it probably wouldn't sell within a year, etc., and (3) the best that we could hope for is $5,000 per acre. Your propsed asking price was much higher and we were thrilled you bought us a qualified buyer in six weeks and the sale clsoed a month later. You were on top of everything and it was fun talikng with you through out the process. I have worked with dozens of REALTORS in six states while settling my father's affairs, so I know when a Realtor is good. You are terrific! Thanks again, and best wishes for your continued success. Sincerely, Carol Page Armstrong
Cherri Mormino on September 27, 2016
"We were looking for a Realtor to help us relocate from Indiana to Gainesville area. Lynne helped us locate several homes in our price range and with our specifications and then spent the day not only showing us the homes, but familiarizing us with the area and its amenities. We were very pleased with her service and professional advise on the area. We would Highly recommend her!" Cherri Mormino
Colin Grenon on September 29, 2016
Bill and Lynne helped me purchase a house in Oct. 2014. Also another home in 2016. They are wonderful people on both a professional and personal level to work with. They possess extensive knowledge of the Gainesville area which was instrumental in allowing me, a non-local, to quickly grasp the pros and cons of the area. In addition to showing me multiple listings, they were always extremely timely and responsive to all channels of communication. I can't say enough about how easy it was to work with them. They are a wonderful team and I look forward to working with them again. Colin Grenon
Wynn and Sean Smith on October 30, 2016
My husband and I recently purchased our first home with the help of Lynne and Bill. Initially we looked at a couple homes with the help of a different realtor that I met at an open house. While he was a nice guy, I couldn’t help but feel like we were just another commission check. We are a young couple and really had no idea what we were doing. We wanted a realtor that felt more like a parent. Someone who would tell us when they had concerns, even if it meant another few weeks or months helping us find something else. We wanted a realtor that we could trust. With Lynne and Bill we got two! The Saunders’ were recommended to us through our bank as part of our VA loan process. As soon as we contacted Lynne and Bill they immediately sent us a list of homes to see and within a few days, we had an appointment to see our first place. Although that first home we looked at wasn’t “the one,” with every home we looked at, Lynne and Bill helped us get better and better at pinpointing exactly what we wanted and which location was best for us. When a few of our offers didn’t go anywhere they were very supportive and reminded us to be patient and the right place would come along. Their experience proved to be correct! After barely a couple months of looking we found the perfect place and our offer was accepted. The inspection period went WAY easier than I thought it would. Of course Lynne and Bill knew exactly what needed to happen and were great at answering all of our questions. Additionally, because the VA can have some very specific requirements, they gave us great advice up front which saved us from any mistakes or delays with closing. They were available at almost all times of the day, so we weren’t restricted to normal 9am-5pm hours. We’re so happy in our new home and we’re confident Lynne and Bill helped us find the right one for us. Wynn and Sean Smith
Laura Coffey on November 7, 2016
We had an excellent experience with Lynne and Bill Saunders. They brought buyers to our old home and helped us find a new one. We had a specific set of requirements and Lynne helped us find a home that met almost all of them at the right price. I was impressed with her availability to meet with us around our schedule and allow our children to join us while we looked for a home. She was responsive to every text, call and email. She was present throughout the whole process. I will recommend Lynne & Bill Saunders to friends in the area.
Annette Novelli on November 9, 2016
Lynne and Bill were absolutely amazing! I am a first time home buyer and was naive to the process of buying a home. They went out of their way to make sure I understood the process and was comfortable with all of the decisions being made. They did a phenomenal job choosing homes for me to see based on my wish list. Lynne and Bill made buying a home into a fun and easy process! They coordinated everything and kept me in the loop the whole way through. They are truly wonderful caring people. I highly recommend them and am so glad I had them to help me with my first home purchase.
Dave & Kristie Kaufman on December 7, 2016
Lynne and Bill were extremely helpful in the process of us buying a piece of property. They answered questions and returned phone calls in a very timely manner. Even though our purchase was not a large one, we were treated as if it were. We will contact them again in the future for other real estate transactions and woud highly recommend them to anyone in the market to buy or sell.
Dave & Kristie Kaufman
Brian Wolfe on December 7, 2016
Lynne and Bill are the greatest team we could have ever asked for as real estate agents. They went well above and beyond their job descriptions. Working with them made the whole experience so much less stressful. They bent over backwards all hours of the day to make our dream come true!!! We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a home. Brian Wolfe
Bill and Lynne were absolutely wonderful realtors. My husband and I purchased our first home through them, and they were fantastic every step of the process. As you can imagine, first time home-buying can be a little overwhelming, but Bill and Lynne were so good at walking through each step and helping us in every moment.
Rick and Vicki Elkins on January 5, 2017
Lynne and Bill Saunders were absolutely without a doubt the right team to sell our house! They were professional and knowledgeable . We hope to have them sell two more houses for us. They are certainly a 5 star team. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to sell a home.
Bruce & Linda Boler on January 18, 2017
We very much enjoyed our experience with Lynne and Bill. They were extremely knowledgeable about the area, very pleasant to work with, and very concerned about meeting our needs. They both were highly professional and exemplary in every way. We were in great and caring hands. We could not say enough good things about them. Thank you, Lynne and Bill. We are so greatfull for all your help and concern for our well being. We felt in such good hands the whole time. Bruce & Linda Boler
Ryan O'Steen on January 28, 2017
Lynne and Bill are fabulous realtors! As a young family purchasing our first home we could not have asked for better people to help guide us through the entire process. They work quickly and keep you informed every step of the way. Lynne responds to ANY question within minutes. We could really trust them to help us make the right decision in the biggest purchase we have ever made and would highly recommend them to other house hunters!!!!
Joan Dawson on March 5, 2017
I am so very grateful to have had the experience of working with Lynne and Bill on the purchase of a home. They were unconditionally committed to me and I felt that from our first meeting. The whole process was easy and stress free and they are with you every step of the way. Very experienced, answered all of my questions and responded right away to e-mails. It doesn't get any better than Lynne and Bill!
Kendyl Cartwright on March 27, 2017
Lynne and Bill made the whole house buying experience so easy! Lynne was there to answer any questions or concerns Day or night! I would highly recommend this realtor team to friends and family!! Thank you both so very much! We can't wait to move into our new home!
Nicholas Thomas on March 29, 2017
I worked with Mrs. Lynne Saunders and she was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She made sure that I understand exactly what was going on and was always willing to help with any questions I may have had. I would recommend without hesitation to anyone looking for a dedicated and knowledgeable realtor.
Ashley and David on March 30, 2017
My husband and I actually chose Lynne and Bill Saunders based off their reviews and they more than met our expectations. We had already found a home we were interested in purchasing and were looking for a closing agent. We reached out to Lynne and instantly knew that we would be going with her. Lynne and Bill are super nice, respond quickly to questions and are very knowledgeable about selling and buying homes and the Gainesville area. This was my first time purchasing a home and I truly felt it was a simple process with the help that was provided. Every question that came up, I felt very comfortable asking Lynne and would get a response right away, even if it was after hours. I would highly recommend Bill and Lynne to anyone. Ashley and David

I wanted to convey just how awesome our experience was working with Lynne and Bill, so I waited a couple of weeks before writing this review, hoping that the words would come to me... the only word that keeps coming back to mind is AWESOME!!! I can not stress enough how important it is to have an agent who is experienced, competent, in touch with the area and an overall professional on your side. We interviewed several agents... we believe that we made a wise decision when we choose Lynne and Bill. We would absolutely recommend them to family/friends.
Lila Guertin on April 15, 2017
Bill and Lynne Saunders were the best Realtors I have ever dealt with. They patiently and carefully explained every step of the selling of my home and the buying of a new one. In addition, they sold my lot in Cedar Key within days of listing it. Selling my home was an admitted challenge, as it would require just the right buyer. Sure enough, Bill and Lynne found the perfect buyers after making the MLS listing available to virtually the whole world, via social media. Excellent photographic skills are provided by Lynne and really helped to showcase my property, and cinch the deal. Every step, from listing to closing, was made very easy via electronic communication and signing. Lynne was ALWAYS available to me night or day; never did I feel I was inconveniencing her with my questions. If you want a team who will work very, very hard to get you over the finish line, I highly recommend Bill and Lynne Saunders. It is not a surprise they are the most recommended realtors in the Gainesville area.
Ashley Shelar on April 26, 2017
Lynne and Bill are absolutely amazing. Not only are they great realtors but they are great people. Finding a house can be overwhelming but Lynne told me that she would find the perfect home for my husband and I. She did exactly that. The second house we saw was "the one". This whole process has been so much easier having Lynne with us. She coordinates everything so well and kept us up to date in the entire process. She let us know what we needed to do each step of the way. We could not have done this without her and would recommend her and Bill to anyone. Both my husband and I are incredibly thankful to have had such great realtors. Thank you Lynne and Bill for all that you have done for us.
George and Patrice Murdock on May 1, 2017
Lynne and Bill were wonderful, professional and enthusiastic in selling our home! Their knowledge and experience, along with their commitment to selling our home for a fair price to the right buyer, gave us complete peace of mind that we'd made the right choice in trusting them with the sale of our home. We highly recommend Lynne and Bill to anyone buying or selling a home.
Carol and Gary Clark on 5/3/2017
Gary and I couldn't be happier with the service we have had with Bill and Lynne. From explaining everything thoroughly from beginning to end and guiding us through each step to their wonderful friendship this has been a great experience. They are experts at their job and very nice people with which to work.
Megan Mitchelli on May 18, 2017
Hi, Lynne I just wanted to say how fortunate I was to have the extraordinary pleasure of working with you in finding my dream home! I was so nervous about the task of being able to find a home that not only fit my budget, but also my ideal of what my home should look like, however, you and Bill made me feel at ease with your friendly, smiling attitudes and professionalism that the task I had in front of me , felt nothing like a task, but more like an adventure! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience and for finding my dream home.(REALTORS) Lynne and Bill Saunders Sincerely, Megan
Mellisa Clark on May 22, 2017
Lynne was absolutely amazing! She helped us find our new home quickly and helped with all of the steps in the process. She made the experience as stress free as possible.
Kevin Pass on May 22, 2017
Can't say enough about how hard Lynne and Bill worked to sell my home. It was an older property and needed a lot of work to get it ready to sell, Lynne and Bill helped me find and manage contractors as I was living in another state throughout the process. They were great, you can't go wrong choosing them to represent you!
Daniel and Elise Albritton on May 31, 2017
We are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Lynne Saunders as our real estate agent. She made our home selling experience extremely pleasant and simple. We have now bought and sold with Lynne Saunders and look forward to working with her again. She made our experience so smooth and simple. She was always professional, quick to answer emails or phone calls/ texts, and was a pleasure to work with. Lynne has a great attitude and we truly enjoyed both experiences with her. We highly recommend Lynne Saunders. Sincerely,Daniel and Elise Albritton
Alex Edmands on June 1, 2017
Lynne and Bill were extremely helpful with helping my wife and I find our first home. As a first time home buyer, they were very patient with me and absolutely excellent with explain everything and making the process as easy as possible. I would gladly choose them again if I have to buy another home .
Natalie and John Chichetto on June 6, 2017
Lynne and Bill Saunders are a pleasure to work with. This is our second experience with them, as they helped us purchase the home we were selling. They were very thoughtful during the whole process and even went to open houses within our neighborhood (of what would end up being our comps) to help us figure out what we needed to list our home for. Lynne was very responsive to emails and text messages when we had questions and always had our best interest at heart. Obviously, since we are return customers we highly recommend Lynne and Bill if you are on the market to buy or sell a home. They will take care of you!
Scott & Laura Register on June 16, 2017
My husband and I were referred to Bill and Lynne Saunders through friends and family as "reputable and knowledgeable realtors" in the Gainesville area. We listed our house on a Saturday, had our first showing on Sunday, and received multiple offers on Monday. The words reputable and knowledgeable aren't nearly enough to described this amazing couple. They were professional. They came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction we had with them after that was the same. Both Bill and Lynne made themselves available mornings, afternoons, evenings, and weekends to ensure an accelerated sale of our home. They were prompt. We wanted a quick sale with a large profit and they came through with a full price offer in 36 hours. Within minutes of our decision to list our home, Bill and Lynne worked together efficiently and professionally to photograph our home, check the comps in the area, and start the paperwork necessary to get it listed. They were patient. My husband and I had only purchased one home, so this would be out first experience as "sellers". Bill and Lynne took the time to answer every question, e-mail, and phone call within minutes of our request. They explained every form, and walked us through each process clearly and thoroughly. Our inexperience worried us that selling our home would be challenging, but working with Bill and Lynne made it painless and nearly effortless. With the immediate sale of our home, the Saunder's are continuing to allocate us with resources, as we are under contract with local homebuilder Robinshore, Inc. to construct our future dream home. They have been exceptionally helpful with the initial contract and selections process, and continue to act as a professional communication link between all parties. We highly recommend Bill and Lynne to all our reference buyers , sellers and friends who are looking for the best in the business.
Tony & Lisa Garcia on August 7, 2017
Hi Lynne, Lisa and I wanted to say thank you for the great experience of selling and buying a house through you and Bill. You provided exceptional customer service, reliable communication, and a great personal touch. Thanks for taking care of all the small details! We would highly recommend both of you to anyone looking to buy or sell.Thanks again.Tony and Lisa Garcia
Narducci Family on August 13, 2017
Dear Lynne and Bill,We can't thank you both enough for helping us find our new home in Gainesville. Being new to the area, we had no idea where to start looking for a home. We really valued your knowledge and expertise of the Gainesville area, you listened to our needs and wants, and found the perfect home for our family. Thank you again!!!Sincerely,The Narducci Family
Bill and Janet Hall on August 14, 2017
Just a quick "Thank You" to Lynne and Bill Saunders for a great job selling our river property in Levy county. A friendly, efficient and knowledgeable couple with a broad buying base who worked tirelessly with local agents to find the perfect buyers. Thanks again, Janet & Bill Hall
Jeff & Debbie Judkins on August 22, 2017
We had the privilege of working with Lynne Saunders to find a home quickly in Gainesville. Within hours we knew she was the right person for us!! The two key words that describe her best are; AVAILABLE and KNOWLEDGEABLE. She always took our calls, emails, and text seven days a week anytime of the day. She worked her schedule around ours since we lived 3 hours away. We knew she was there for us!!It was clear she knew the Gainesville market after our first trip. She came prepared with information to show us the best options based on what we were looking for in a home. After signing a contract on a home she continued to work for us. She gave us recommendations and got us contacts to move the process forward. She did more than she had to to help this be a smooth transition for our family.We are so grateful for what Lynne did for us. It all started as a business relationship. Very quickly it was a friendship and we trusted that she was working for us to make our move into the Gainesville community a positive one. Jeff & Debbie Judkins
Scott & Karen Hyland on August 27, 2017
We recently worked with Bill and Lynne Saunders during our relocation from Iowa to Gainesville. Bill and Lynne are very knowledgeable about real estate and the Gainesville area. Lynne took extra time and answered all of our countless questions and pulled up listing after listing to try to find a home with the criteria that we desired. We are happy in our new home that The Saunders helped us locate and secure and are blessed that they took the time to facilitate the entire process which spanned many months. Thank you Bill and Lynne.Scott and Karen Hyland
Lynsey Rowlands on August 27, 2017
Lynne and Bill Saunders made my house buying experience incredible. They never complained about looking at tons of houses until I found the perfect one. They were extremely accommodating to my schedule! Throughout finding the house, making an offer and the entire process up until closing, Lynne and Bill were both there to help me in any way that they could! Highly recommend! Lynsey
Alecia Metcalf on August 29, 2017
As a first time homebuyer, I was a little bit nervous and really had no idea what to expect. I had heard some horror stories from friends about how long and difficult the process of finding and closing on a house could be. My experience ended up being quite the opposite thanks to Lynne and Bill! I had a fairly narrow timeline to work with before my lease was up, but they always assured me they could get it accomplished without settling for less than my dream home, and they did not disappoint!! Lynne and Bill were so easy to work with and always made time to meet with me to show houses when it was convenient for me (which was probably inconvenient to them since I work past 5pm most days). My phone calls, text messages, and emails were always answered immediately no matter the time of day or week. Most of the time I had no idea what to look for and what questions to ask when visiting properties, but they took the time to teach me and made sure that I got the best value for my money and the features that I really wanted in a home. It is obvious that they are passionate about what they do. I couldn't be happier in my new home and if I ever need real estate help in the future, there's nobody else I'd call! Alecia Metcalf
Daniel & Hannah M. on September 18, 2017
We just want to take this opportunity to thank Bill & Lynne Saunders for representing us during the purchase of our home. They knew what questions to ask in areas we had no idea. They were available to us at any time and were quick to respond to our concerns and questions. They kept us on track and made sure to coach us through the many forms and each stage of the process. A realtor can make or break your deal, don't under estimate the need to have a professional on your side. We were very well taken care of and entirely trusted Bill & Lynne were looking out for our benefit. We are so grateful to them for their patience in helping us to find the home where our family will make memories for years to come. Sincerely,Daniel & Hannah M
Cam and Sara Smith on September 28, 2017
Working with Lynne and Bill has been a wonderful experience! We have become like family in many ways. We had a complex situation because of our immigration status but she stuck with us as we searched for many months to find a home. I have appreciated your quick response to our questions and requests. Your willingness to do "small things" has shown your care for your clients. I remember in the last week prior to closing, you texted the seller's agent to see if we could have the cardboard boxes the sellers left at the home for our use in packing; you bought gifts for our children and offered us your hand truck for moving day. More importantly you are knowledgeable, skilled, and wonderfully networked. You use your contacts well and ultimately found us the lender we would use. Closing was seamless. Thanks so much for your help and for working on our behalf. Sara Smith
Jane Emmeree on October 28, 2017
This is the second opportunity that I had to work with Lynne on purchasing a house, and once again, it was a pleasure. Lynne and Bill are reliable, competent, and most of all, caring people. They do what they say they are going to do, when they say they are going to do it and handle all the details so the buying process is hassle-free. I highly recommend them to any buyer or seller.
Allison A. on November 4, 2017
Lynne and Bill Saunders went above and beyond to find my perfect first home. They answered my many questions and addressed any concerns I had throughout the process, big or small. Lynne and Bill made this huge milestone in my life as stress free as possible. They were able to work around my schedule to arrange showings and knew exactly what I was looking for in my first home. Lynne and Bill used their extensive knowledge and experience in real estate to provide excellent service! I highly recommend! Allison A.
Christine and Norm on December 14, 2017
Lynne and Bill. Thank you so much for everything you did to ensure our satisfaction with our recent home purchase. We appreciate the extra effort you spent setting appointments with contractors, and the time you dedicated to helping us make decisions confidently. We are very happy with our experience and would recommend you to a friend looking to purchase a home! Christine and Norm
Caley Hibbits & Edward Beckham on January 11, 2018
Lynne and Bill treated us like family during our home purchasing experience. As first time home buyers, we were quite skeptical and unaware. They taught us everything from housing siding to different contracts. Most important was their patience and attention to our needs. I felt like they could read my body language and mind. Lynne was available at any time, and we definitely took advantage, despite this she always made us feel like a priority! Caley Hibbits & Edward Beckham
Penny & Bill Woodward on January 11, 2018

She was available whenever we could be in town, and worked with us to identify what our needs were and find the right home for us.We are excited to start this next phase of our lives, and look forward to moving into our new home!Bill and Penny
Eric and Nicolle Parker on January 13, 2018
Lynne and Bill Saunders are top notch realtors that deliver results. After a thorough review of our home that we were selling, they gave professional experienced advice. From the onset, they were proactive, and hands on in making sure our home was widely visible, and communicated with a great network of realtors that broadened the search for potential buyers. Their seasoned experience, resourceful tools, and creativity made our listing stand out, and ultimately proved successful in the buyer’s ability to find their perfect home. We couldn’t be more pleased to have worked with Lynne and Bill and recommend them with confidence. They deliver results with professionalism and kindness! Eric & Nicholle
Heather and Dan Druissi on January 21, 2018
Fantastic Experience!Our experience with the USAA Realtor Network and with Lynne Saunders and her partner BillSaunders was fantastic! My husband and I lived in California and my husband was offered a job inGainesville, Florida. We didn't know anyone there, so when USAA offered their own Realtor network wedecided to take advantage of it. It was one of the best decisions we have ever made.From our first contact, Lynne was very responsive and really listened to what we needed in a home. Shemade time the first weekend my husband was in town and took him to some of our choices we hadpicked out for our new home, and some that she thought we would like as well. Because I was still inCalifornia, Lynne and Bill made sure to Skype me in and showed me every home they were walking myhusband through. They also answered many questions and helped us see the positives and negatives ofall the houses. That very day, we found our home, and it was one that Lynne had picked out for us! Abrand new build that had been put on the market only the day before.She was very quick to make the offer to the builder, and two days later we had our accepted offer and itwas sent back to USAA who was also our lender. The whole process from start to close was smootherthan we had ever hoped. Even with a VA loan, the process took less than 30 days to find the house,offer, appraise and close. All of this we could not have done without Lynne and Bill Saunders. And, evenafter we closed, Lynne checked in with us to ensure we were doing good in our new home.We cannot recommend Lynne and Bill more. And, the USAA Realtor network not only gave me afantastic Realtor, but they also gave us a check worth almost a thousand dollars after we closed forusing them.We can honestly say the USAA network and using Lynne and Bill Saunders as our Realtors was one of thebest decisions we could have ever made.Heather and Daniel Driussi
