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.
