Penny Lyons is an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped us to sell our home when we relocated out-of-state two years ago and she went above and beyond to help us make the house show beautifully. She was diligent and hard working and a lot of fun to work with. When we moved back to Connecticut this year, Penny helped us find a wonderful home. Her honesty and ability to know what suits her clients best, made our search efficient and pleasant. We had a very short time to find a home, and Penny was a miracle worker! Penny is a savvy negotiator and really knows the market. It was comforting to know that we were in good hands and that Penny was steadfastly representing our interests. Penny's ability to get the "impossible" done was truly impressive and her positive attitude made what could have been a stressful experience a pleasure. - and Amy Moskoff Weston, Ct
"Penny Lyons is someone you respect, trust and enjoy even more when the process of buying and selling your house is completed." - Anne Esse Fairfield, Ct
Penny Lyons was my agent as a first time home buyer. I knew what I didn't want but didn't have much of an idea as to what I did want. She selected several homes after listening to my "wish list" of needs. The first home we walked into was it! She immediately directed me to three mortgage specialists she felt would be a good match. She worked tirelessly as a coordinator throughout the entire process keeping open the lines of communication between the sellers, attorneys and mortgage specialist to bring the deal to an uneventful closure and to make my first experience a positive and smooth one. Penny's approach to my new home purchase consisted of more fervor and conviction than I ever expected from a real estate agent. She guided me through this process, calm in her approach and representing my interests every step of the way. She was always available to me no matter when I called or emailed, always responding within minutes. Penny is consummate professional and the agent I will always want to have in my corner. - Kathy Roberts Westport, Ct
