A Personal Note From Lynn
"Real estate is a process and I love the whole process. I enjoy helping people buy and sell property. I like the leg work of preparing a property for sale, finding the perfect home for my buyers, the thrill of a successful negotiation, the satisfaction of closing the deal, knowing that I have been instrumental in a positive way to assisting individuals, partners and families in handling the acquisition or sale of perhaps one of their most valuable assets and, to providing exceptional service along the way. Ask my clients. They attest to it."

Lynn moved to Washington, DC in 1983 where she worked internationally as a business consultant, completing projects in market analysis, pricing assessments, competitive product review and investment promotion which spanned eight Caribbean countries. Her banking experience provided an excellent understanding of how banks fund themselves and how they lend money. Financing is a core necessity to real estate transactions. Lynn understands finance. Overseas consulting required patience, perseverance and strong communication skills. Experience bringing people with different viewpoints and interests to mutual agreement now translates to an ability to represent her clients with power and precision.
