Providing exceptional service and nearly a decade of experience, Lyn Harvie is a trusted real estate professional and an advocate for her clients. “As more buyers and sellers enter the market, I have an opportunity to change their perceptions about the process and surpass their expectations about the level of service they can receive,” says Harvie, a broker associate with Baird & Warner specializing in the downtown Chicago market. Assisting buyers, sellers and investors from around the world, Harvie navigates every transaction with ease, educating her clients so they can make informed decisions.
With 80% of her business derived from referrals, former clients, friends and family, Harvie takes a highly strategic approach, adhering to proven systems to maintain organization and best serve her clients. “Probably the most common comment I get is, ‘You don’t mess around, Lyn,’” she says, noting that she’s able to keep clients’ emotions at bay by running through all possible scenarios to prepare them for any outcome.
In all areas of her life, Harvie abides by the principle that if you choose to be happy, success will follow. “I’m a huge believer in being grateful for what you have, and I bring that mindset to every transaction,” she says. “I like to remind my clients that, while buying or selling a home can be stressful at times, it’s also an exciting time and I’m grateful to guide them through the process.”
Harvie recently served as a co-chair on the associate board of Housing Opportunities for Women, a group of young professionals from the Chicago area who are passionate about ending homelessness, and continues to support the organization in any way she can.
