About Lynn O’Connell
Before joining Leading Edge Real Estate in December 2019, Lynn was a top tier agent on the Baker Realty Group at Keller Williams and at Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty in Boston.
Her prior career in broadcast sales and sales management helped to develop Lynn’s strong statistical analysis skills and provided her with excellent sales and negotiation training. The Strategic Selling program favored by many Fortune 500 companies whose salespeople are required to successfully manage and negotiate complex sales made an impact upon Lynn. The basic premise is to identify every single thing that needs to happen to get to a sale and to take care of that task on a timely basis and to your best ability. Additionally, every potential obstacle to the sale must be identified and eliminated before the sale is derailed by the obstacle. A simple, pro-active concept of thinking about your business and leaving nothing to chance.
Following this plan helped Lynn hit the ground running when she transitioned to a full-time real estate sales career. The transition was inevitable. Lynn was always passionate about anything and everything to do with real estate. In 1992, she became a real estate investor, purchasing a large mixed use property and completing her very first 1031 transaction. She is interested in architecture and has been described as a “serial renovator”. Lynn built an office building and a horse farm from the ground up. She has done over 100,000 sf of property renovations, always using her own design plans. Lynn parlayed a love of design and knack for decorating into home staging, which helps her seller clients get higher prices. She has a passion for client service; providing white glove service to buyers, sellers and investors in the greater Boston area. Read more about Lynn.
