#1 Fair Oaks and Surrounding Area REALTOR® and the Top Agent and Team at Lyon Real Estate Fair Oaks.
Thank you for your continued trust and support. We couldn't have gotten here without you!
I came by real estate pretty naturally. My grandmother had been a very successful agent in the Oakland area when I was young. I would go to the office with her and watch her interact with people. I was with her at her open houses and I sat with her on weekday mornings as she wrote her ads for the weekend classified. I always enjoyed being around her while she was conducting business and her strong belief in home-ownership rubbed off on me.
I had been encouraging people to buy homes long before I was an agent. Of course it's a great investment, but beyond that, it is the foundation of what I believe is important. It's your place of pride; it's where you raise your family and where you entertain friends. It's the place you go at the end of the day that's safe and comfortable. And when you own a home, it's yours and you can't be asked to leave because your landlord has decided to sell it or has raised the rent so high you can no longer afford it.
Much of who I am revolves around the home. I love family and am very close to my large, extended family. I love being a mother to my two sons, Sam and Nelson. I enjoy entertaining friends and I cherish the many friendships that I have. I am also proud to be an American where owning the American dream is still possible for people.
My twenty-five years of experience as a public school teacher has helped me be a better Realtor. I believe in the importance of my clients being educated about the entire real estate process. It allows for decisions to be made more comfortably and quickly, and truly reduces stress and frustration that can occur when buying or selling a home.
Real estate is an exciting business. I love the business aspect of it– the negotiating, the strategizing, and the challenge of achieving the best outcome for my clients. I pride myself in being honest and continually working toward a win-win solution for all those involved in a transaction. I know that it is imperative to keep up-to-date on market trends as well as on inventory in the area. Therefore, I keep my clients updated continually on market trends and believe that continuous communication before, during and after a sale or purchase can make the difference between a successful and exciting experience and a miserable experience. I put your interests first and I work proactively which helps to ensure that you find the right home, we get your home sold and that things don't unravel at the end of the escrow.
I love my job and would love the opportunity to work with you to achieve your real estate goals!
We hired Becky to sell our rental property based on prior experience with her when we were looking for homes to purchase several years ago, her experience and knowledge in the area, and her connection with the community. From the moment the transaction started, Becky was very professional and knowledgeable about what needed to be done to get our property ready to sell, being mindful that we wanted a return on the money we were investing. She kept the process moving swiftly and made herself available to answer questions and help with contractors. When the house was ready to put on the market, Becky was very aggressive with open house hours and we received and accepted an offer (above asking price) within days. The escrow process with our buyers was extremely challenging but once again, Becky kept the process moving forward, going over and above to take the brunt of the issues on herself.
I would absolutely hire Becky again based on my experience: 1) she is results oriented while keeping the interests of her client in mind, 2) she was very responsive to my calls/concerns understanding that my work/life constricted the time I was available, 3) she is well connected with other agents and contractors and knows the prep/negotiation/sales/escrow processes extremely well, 4) she's not afraid to go to bat for her clients, and 5) she's fun to work with, keeping a positive attitude even during stressful times.
Becky is a dynamo and works hard for her clients. She sold our house at a great price in 17 days (from contract signing to close of escrow) a very s-l-o-w market. Before Becky, our house had been on the market for 6 months. As a seller's agent she uses various marketing tools, and her photos, staging, open houses are all top notch. Her pricing analysis will blow you away; it shows excellent research skills and an intricate knowledge of every street and neighborhood in the Fair Oaks community of Sacramento County. She manages multiple offers with alacrity, honesty and her client's best interests in mind. Her staff are competent and efficient. She communicates clearly and frequently with her clients especially during escrow. She understands that for most people selling a house has a big impact on their personal finances and she takes that very seriously. Becky is the top selling agent in Fair Oaks for a lot of excellent reasons. If you have a house to sell in Fair Oaks, choose Becky!
You cannot find a better real estate agent than Becky Lund, who is just outstanding. My husband and I have worked with her for the last four years and found her to be a delight to work with -- warm and personable, extremely skilled and effective, and very responsive (she always got back to us right away). Becky has tremendous integrity and is scrupulously honest about the merits and drawbacks of homes for sale; she also had the patience of a saint in dealing with our many requests in the complex process of buying. Her associate, Tiffany Gutkowski, is also a lovely person and wonderful to work with. In our most recent collaboration, Becky and Tiffany helped us sell a small but appealing 1920s bungalow in Fruitridge. Becky gave us good advice on making the house and back yard more attractive to potential buyers, and Tiffany oversaw a terrific photo slideshow of the house, which we liked so much we made copies for our scrapbook. Becky helped us find the right price point for the property and we sold it for a good price. The new buyer was happy, too, so it was a proverbial win-win situation. I give them my highest recommendation.
I learned of Becky Lund through a business associate, several years ago, when she sold a home for me in Fair Oaks. Her concept of the "team approach" was new to me; and I viewed it with some skepticism. However, her team's communication was, and continues to be excellent. I was pleased and informed throughout the sales process. I have recently purchased multiple investment properties using Becky and her team. And, we are looking to acquire several other investment properties in the Sacramento Area. She and her team have been excellent in working to find properties which meet my criterion.
Becky Lund met our every need through the sale of our property and purchase of our new property. Always available, followed up quickly on every call and text message- offered the best in advice and strategies for the sale and purchase. Becky is thorough and a perfect professional. She is our “go to” professional for our real estate needs. We felt cared for and in good hands with her.

Becky Lund and her associates did a fantastic job for us. They were there when we needed them and did all we asked of them. We totally appreciate their efforts.
Becky was awesome! She is a first class realtor and very professional. We met with her about 90 days before we put the house on the market. Her suggestions on what to do to prep the house made all the difference. In addition, she knows home values for the area. We went with her recommendation for the price and the house sold in one week with 2 full price offers. She had great solutions for all the little issues that arise when selling a home. All our phone calls were answered within an hour. All of the people she works with, home stagers, termite company, repair people- were top notch. I can't say enough great things about Becky. She totally made the selling of our home a stress free event.

It is a pleasure to recommend Beck Lund and her team to you. We listed and sold our home with Becky and she and her team were able to guide us at every step of the selling process. We were impressed by her patience, big picture thinking, great negotiating skills and likeability. She listened to our requests and consistently offered great advice. We had multiple offers on our property and in the end Becky was able to secure our asking price and then some! We will work with Becky again in the future and we highly recommend her for anyone buying/selling their home in Fair Oaks or the greater Sacramento area.
It is with great appreciation that we write to you about Becky Lund and Tiffany Gutkowski. To put it simply, Becky is incredible. We would not be in our new home if it weren’t for her. She stuck with us through a year and a half of searching and guided us through the craziest real estate market in decades. We would have been lost without her experience and deep expertise in the local market. We also sold our former house with Tiffany and Becky. Again, they easily and cheerfully made sure the transaction went smoothly and handled every small bump that arose. In addition, they are both wonderful to work with on a personal level- friendly, kind, and patient. They never forgot that this was a significant undertaking for us. And we never doubted that we had chosen the right people to guide us through it. We are thrilled to call our address “home,” and we absolutely could not have done it without Becky.

We didn't know Becky when my husband and I decided to sell our home, we had just seen her sign around the Fair Oaks area with "Sold" repeatedly. We made an excellent choice. After a few interviews with realtors, we signed with Becky. She immediately took charge insuring that the pictures of our home highlighted its' best features, and went to work marketing. Our home sold quickly and the people wanted a quick escrow. Becky and her team were always available to assist in the process. Of course, at that point, we needed to find our new home. We had the same experience. Responsive and knowledgeable. I would recommend Becky and her team to anyone contemplating selling or buying a home.
