Lynn Marshall’s family history is inseparable from that of Portland.
Spanning five generations, back to the founding of the city, there are simply no other realtors with deeper local roots. Lynn’s surname even represents the M street in the “alphabet” district of Portland. The name is no coincidence; it was Lynn’s great-great-great grandfather, an esteemed river boat navigator of the Willamette and Columbia rivers, after whom the now charming street was named. Family lore even claims that it was a Marshall who flipped the coin which decided the city’s name.
Fast-forward to modern Portland, and the Marshall thumbprint can be seen on many of its most prestigious developments like Forest Heights, Claremont, Charbonneau and the many custom-built homes over the NW Hills. Lynn has worked side by side with her father, developer George Marshall, by marketing and selling those diverse homes throughout the Portland metropolitan area.
Not only was Lynn “forged” in the real estate world while growing up, she also faced trial by fire immediately upon graduating from the University of Oregon when she provided critical aid to her father in the development of the Charbonneau community in the mid-eighties. Unfavorable economic conditions at the time, with interest rates as high as 19%, provided an incredible challenge for Lynn. The negotiating and creative problem solving skills she picked up from that initial experience created a solution focused broker, and launched her into an extremely productive career.
Lynn has now been serving her clients for decades, and during that time she’s sold hundreds of homes. She’s primarily built her network by referral; the hardest-earned compliment a broker can receive. However, she’s also capitalized on keen digital marketing techniques since its advent.
Her long history in new construction distinguishes Lynn. She is able to advise her clients on costs associated with all the financial decisions made throughout the entirety of a real estate transaction.
Lynn is not only a tough negotiator and an assertive advocate, she is a genuinely empathetic person who’s able to listen to and connect with her clients. “I am very fortunate to have had a wonderful career helping so many parties. I am dedicated to obtain the best possible results and to exceeding expectations as I value the responsibility I have, and the confidence my clients instill in me when making one of the most important decisions in their lives”.
She is a highly experienced, people-centric real estate professional, and possesses an ability to choreograph successful residential sales and purchases. As an experienced negotiator, Lynn is a powerful advocate throughout the transaction, particularly if difficulties arise.
