Lynn is both an Attorney and Designated Broker.  Her practice is in the area of pre- and post-foreclosure workouts and frequently involves repayment/forbearance plans, debt negotiation and (lots of) short sale transactions.  She recently served on the Department of Licensing/Real Estate Commission Short Sale Task Force.  Lynn is active in a number of legal and civic organizations, a speaker at seminars, including the Washington State Bar Association, King County Bar Association, various real estate offices (Windermere, John L. Scott and Keller Williams), and as an Instructor with the Washington Association of Realtors, she offers Clock Hour classes to Realtors throughout the state.  She is also a frequent guest on Real Estate Radio on 1150 AM KKNW. 

Lynn is passionate about doing what is best for the client (seller or buyer), by only doing short sales that make sense.  As a Real Estate broker herself, she “gets” it - she understands the difficulties agents face in a short sale transaction.

In addition to her volunteer activities, Lynn enjoys the theater, opera, symphony and cooking (mostly healthy).  She is an avid New York Yankees fan and can be found walking around Green Lake with her dog Jack in the little spare time that remains.
