Lynn Briskin has demonstrated a passion for real estate for over 20 years. Her career began in the leasing of high-end property in Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood, where she fell in love with the industry. Lynn has explored different paths throughout the years, including running her own company and working in property management, but she has been firmly dedicated to real estate since the start.
Born and raised in Southern California, Lynn moved to Chicago in 1985, and her affection for the Midwest has kept her here ever since. In 2003, she settled in Evanston, where she currently lives with her family and golden retriever. Her experiences in the city and suburbs have made it possible for Lynn to work with clients interested in numerous areas throughout Chicagoland. From the South Shore to the North Shore, Lynn can tackle it all.
There is no mistaking that real estate can be a challenge, which is one of the many reasons this is Lynn's profession of choice. She loves homes and finds design and architecture extremely interesting. She is a true people person who has the ability to relate to others, to listen and to understand her client's needs. Thorough and detail oriented, Lynn is able to focus on every detail through both the buying and selling process. Lynn has received the Quality Service Certification Platinum Designation for the last twelve years signifying 100% client satisfaction, and in 2010, she was awarded Best in Business among only 75 other agents in the area. For the last seven years Lynn was selected as a Five Star Real Estate Agent by Chicago Magazine, among only 7% of area Realtors. In 2017 Lynn was recognized as the top individual agent in the Evanston Office and a member of @properties Top 100.
Lynn works with buyers and sellers, from first timers with no experience to those who have already been through the buying and selling process. First-time buyers have always naturally gravitated to Lynn, as she is patient and knowledgeable, and understands the strong emotions that accompany purchasing one's first home. In fact, Lynn has conducted seminars to help first-time homebuyers understand all aspects of the process. Easy to work with and laid back, Lynn will never pressure a client. She is always available and responsive and is involved from day one to the moment the transaction is complete. She is committed to solving the challenges that arise during the real estate transaction and will insure that no detail goes unresolved or falls through the cracks.
Lynn does not become a stranger after leaving the closing table, and she has all the resources necessary to help clients with whatever they need. From a handyman to a roofer to a landscaper, Lynn can find the best person for the task. Honest and approachable, she strives to make the process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Lynn's ultimate goal: to have her clients feel confident, happy and totally satisfied with their real estate experience.
In her free time, Lynn is an avid gardener and enjoys walking, biking and traveling. She is also a member of the National and Illinois Association of Realtors and North Shore Barrington Association of Realtors.
Clients are saying:
"Lynn has represented me in both sales and purchases over the years. I cannot say enough about the degree of professionalism and expertise she brings to the table for her clients. I have referred her to both friends and family. There is nobody I would trust more to see you through the home buying or selling process than Lynn. She provides honest advice and insight into markets/homes that only someone with her abilities and experience can provide. If you are buying or selling in the Chicago area, Lynn is the only name you need to know"
"I can't imagine a better realtor than Lynn Briskin. With her help, I was able to buy my dream home and I wouldn't have been able to do it without her. She would not stop until I got exactly what I wanted and was lovely to work with along the way. She's the best."
"Ok,buying or selling home can be a stressful endeavor in the best of times...Lynn has guided us through the process of both selling and buying a home here recently and we could not be happier with her expertise and results....She keeps things clear and concise and makes sure that all info. is where it needs to be when it needs to be there...That sometimes is not easy to do but she somehow keeps it all organized and moving forward with the least amount of wasted time and steps...Gotta love that...Anyway,she came to us via referral and we lucked out big time finding her....She would be our 1st call should we consider buying or selling in the future..."
"I would highly recommend Lynn, actually I already have.
She sold us our home and just recently helped sell our Condo in Rogers Park.
We will use Lynn again
She is wonderful"
"I have worked with Lynn on multiple home sales and purchases. Most recently I purchased my third condo with her. I had very specific asks, and Lynn was patient and persistent in finding the right place for me. In the end, I was able to purchase a condo that wasn't on the market or the PLN based on Lynn establishing a strong relationship with the property manager at the building I was eyeing. I literally would not have been able to get the home I wanted without Lynn's help!"
