about us

Complexity demands experience

We love what we do. And we love our clients.

When Lynn started her real estate career at the start of the 2008 recession, she knew she would have to be entrepreneurial and different to survive. Over ten years later she is consistently recognized as a top producer on the Peninsula and a leader in the real estate community as a member of the Silicon Valley Association of Realtors Board of Directors and the chair of the Palo Alto District Council.  Lynn and Anne pride themselves on their sincere commitment and level of service to each and every client. Their personal approach to marketing and skill in negotiating make the difference for their clients to get the best possible price with the most supported experience possible.

Our clients are saying...

My wife and I had such a great experience working with Annie and Lynn buying our house years ago that they were obviously the first people we reached out to when we were looking for our next home. On the sale side, they definitely got the house looking great on a very short timeline, and they served as effective negotiators on our behalf. And on the buy side, they really helped us understand what we were looking for, saved us from bidding on a few houses with hidden flaws that we thought we wanted at first glance, and got us a new home that we love. I can't fit all the great things about working with them into a small review, but I can't imagine working with anyone else.

My wife and I were lucky to work with Lynn and Annie, who recently helped us purchase our first house. Buying a home in the Bay Area is no easy task (especially when you're doing it for the first time), but our experience was eased by the dedication and expertise brought by their team. Lynn and Annie shepherded us through the process from start to finish and provided valuable insights about both individual properties and larger market trends. We found that visiting homes with them was a valuable use of our time, as they had a keen eye for detail and quality. We made a few offers before eventually submitting a successful one, and with each potential home we felt confident that we were making informed, viable offers through consultation with Lynn and Annie. I can't say enough about how effectively and proactively they communicated with us, and how clear it was that they had our best interests in mind throughout. We could not recommend Lynn and Annie more highly and extend our profound gratitude for their hard work.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Lynn and Annie. They recently helped us purchase our dream home in Half Moon Bay. Their advice and hands-on service was invaluable as my husband and I had last purchased a home 23 years ago. Angel in the office was also very responsive and super at preparing our docusign docs. Then Lynn and Annie and their team did a beautiful job of updating our former home very quickly so we could get it on the market. We just closed and couldn't be happier with the final offer of $287k over asking. All I can say is hire them because you won't be sorry.

I've now worked with Lynn and Annie who've helped my family with 2 sales, and they are 100% the real deal who go above and beyond each time.

I can't say enough good things about Lynn and Annie for their expertise in selling a home as part of an estate sale, during a pandemic no less. They made an emotionally difficult and overwhelming process of selling a family home feel manageable, and I'm grateful for their responsiveness and excellent communication in explaining how they were taking care of everything, especially when it came to packing up existing things in the house and overseeing extensive, high-value renovations to help modernize an older home.

I really appreciate their walking me through the listing process and pricing strategy as someone who had never been through that process before; a more unscrupulous real estate agent could've easily taken advantage of me, but Annie and Lynn helped us quickly close the sale in a way that felt fair and reasonable for all parties. They even recommended an excellent real estate agent in another part of the US when it came time for me to buy! You can't go wrong with having Annie and Lynn represent you.

Andrea C.

There is no way I can say enough about Lynn and Annie’s knowledge, professionalism, drive and support and kindness in what can be a very stressful and trying life event.

They did an over-the-top superb job in handling the sale of my house a couple years ago and I had a clean offer over the asking price before it officially went on the market.

Needless to say, when it was time for me to sell a condominium I inherited and had been a rental for quite a number of years, who else would I consider? I just had no idea how much harder it is to sell a property in a condominium association, especially when you want to update it. They hung in there through so much red tape and working with the condominium association (and they handled this, not me) and we were not even looking to do structural changes. I could never have handled all this and had the right contractors and inspectors lined up.

I gave them 5 stars on my home sale review because it was so easy for me. This one was much harder (which I wasn’t expecting) but they hung in there, dealt with so many challenges and got it sold.

Their communication is clear and timely and I recommend them unequivocally. They did great on my house and put in their experience and effort to result in a successful sale of my condominium.

I highly recommend them, and while I know they are more focused on house sales they did an outstanding job preparing and helping to sell my condo.

Connie G.

Lynn and Annie have helped me sell property in my parents trust spanning 5 years and they have been exceptional! They have excellent ideas for improving property and follow through in a timely fashion! They are knowledgeable, kind, efficient, communicative, honest and truly, the most amazing duo to work with!

Denise D.

We have worked with Lynn and Annie on many transactions between all our family members. Without a doubt we would not think of buying or selling without their help. The thing that sets this team apart is their personal handling of every detail. They bring professionalism, expertise, industry reputation, vision, organization and especially personal handling of each transaction. Every transaction we have done with them as agent has involved Lynn and Annie going "above and beyond" to make the sale or purchase of each home successful. They bring so much to each deal, and we could not recommend them more highly.

Michele O.

Lynn and Annie were very helpful in the selling of our family home after our mother passed in January, 2023. They shepherded us (my three siblings and I) through every step of the process with professionalism and made the entire process virtually seamless. I, as the Executor and Trustee, was especially grateful as I live in Sacramento and the home was in Menlo Park. We had regular communications and pictures showing us the progress of the upgrades needed to modernize this 1960s-era home and make it appealing to a modern family. Thank you, Lynn and Annie, for all of your service!

Recently we sold our home of 37 years on the Monterey Peninsula. We chose Lynn Wilson Roberts and Anne Wilson Roberts of Compass Realty (Palo Alto) as agents for marketing and sale. Turned out to be one of best decisions we've ever made. Our 115+ year old house was in good enough shape, but Lynn and Anne's suggestions, all of which we took and implemented, for strengthening the house's bones and enhancing its attractiveness to the buyer's eye, were clearly responsible for a selling price well beyond our initial expectations. Lynn and Anne quite professionally also fielded and resolved some difficult curve balls thrown by local government planning and building officials. They closed the deal, as noted, at a great number and unfettered with nettlesome conditions. Anyone considering sale or purchase of a residential property within Lynn and Anne's professional 'jurisdiction"  and desiring the most professional and effective approach to one of the most significant life events, will be beyond well served having selected this excellent real estate team. A+ They are the best! George and Torie

1020 Sharon Park Drive

Menlo Park, CA 94025

Sharon Park was a beautiful home located in a desirable neighborhood in Menlo Park, with views to the community’s beloved duck pond. Situated as it was, on a large lot backing up to an open space preserve, Sharon Park had a very private, peaceful feeling. The home had a desirable, open floor plan with lots of light flooding in the large windows. However, the homeowners had not invested in updates since they built the home in the 1970s. Within a matter of a few weeks, we transformed Sharon Park to a current, bright and immediately livable home and in so doing were able to meet the sellers’ price expectations.
