Lynn was born in Newfoundland, and raised in Churchill Falls, Labrador. After graduation from college, she became a member of the Canadian Armed Forces, and several moves later was living in Ottawa. She left the Forces to work from home while raising her young children when, in 2007, decided to make Carleton Place her home. She has never looked back. Lynn loves this small town, and knows she made the right choice to raise her two kids here.


“Lynn assisted me with the purchase of my current home 4.5 years ago and has now provided me with her expertise and knowledge to sell my home to downsize. She was always there to answer questions in a friendly and honest manner while still maintaining a very high level of professionalism. Thank you”

Louise Mould

“Lynn is the best realtor by far that I have had the pleasure of working with. She went above and beyond for us and delivered on all her promises when it came to selling our home. She was 100% accurate and reliable and her team on the ball!! I highly recommend Lynn and her team and would use her again in a second.”

Heather Nimigan

“I was very impressed by Lynn from our first meeting. She made a very professional presentation as to how I was going to sell my house. As I was to learn through out the process, she is a dedicated realtor, who can be trusted and is very confident in what she does. From the first introductory meeting to conclusion of the selling process she exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone entering the real estate market.”
