Lynn Matthews joined DPR Realty March 2016 as Managing Broker. She brings over 21 years’ experience in the real estate business to help agents be successful here at DPR. She realized after many years in sales, she was really a broker walking in a salesperson’s shoes and wanted to focus more on her passion of helping others. Lynn loves working with agents to find solutions to real time problems and challenges.
Lynn earned her undergraduate business degree from Indiana State University and for you older folks, yes she graduated with Larry Bird (1979). Her career began at Procter & Gamble where she managed a crazy production line making bounce fabric softener and toilet paper in Green Bay, WI.
From there, she earned her Master’s degree in business at UW-Oshkosh and was hired by First Interstate Bank to help spearhead a productivity management department at corporate headquarters in Phoenix. After 10 years of various assignments in banking including financial operations, methods analysis, and marketing communications, she ended the corporate stint as a Senior Vice President.
In 1995, Lynn co-founded a custom home building business and became a full-time licensed Realtor. In addition to marketing and selling high-end custom homes, Lynn developed long-term clients, owned investment property, acquired extensive experience in foreclosures and short sales, closed multiple types of transactions, and worked with an investor group fixing and flipping properties.
Lynn is the proud Mother of two wonderful teenagers; her daughter attends Loyola University-Chicago on a golf and academic scholarship and her son is a junior in high school specializing in being a great kid and also playing high school golf and baseball. She is an avid golfer and has two adorable rescue dogs.
