Lynne Thompson

Gibson Sotheby's International Realty


Born and raised in Somerville, I have been working in Arlington and local real estate for going on 20 years. I own several investment properties personally, and am intimately familiar with the local housing market, neighborhoods, values, and trends. While Arlington has a desirable school system and tends to be less transitory, Somerville leans more towards the first time buyer or renter with a 3-5 year on average term of residency. Both Arlington and Somerville feature a perceived lifestyle that attracts particular profiles of buyers. The red line remains ever popular; whether settling in Somerville, Cambridge, or Arlington. The Green Line Extension and development in East Somerville is already changing the landscape and having a positive effect on property values. Transitioning from renting, or ownership of a first purchase condo, is often motivated by a lifestyle change. Moving from Somerville or urban areas to Arlington is a common pattern. And today, more boomers are selling in the burbs and seeking an urban oasis. No matter your real estate needs, I welcome the opportunity to assist you in Arlington, Somerville, Cambridge, Medford, Belmont, Watertown, Lexington, Winchester as primary markets, and many other towns on a referral basis.

If you're seeking an individualized marketing campaign, please get in touch. I can put the power of the most expansive marketing program available in the local industry to work for you, supported by proven results! I can devise a customized promotion and marketing strategy guaranteed to produce the optimum outcome. If you're searching for a home, as your Buyer's Agent, I will counsel you so you can make educated decisions, and will always advocate solely for the most advantageous outcome. As your representative, I apply honed skills, an awareness of the marketplace and patterns, expert knowledge, and abundant resources acquired from 20 years of working in the local market. My goal is to help you navigate the course, avoid the pitfalls, and to provide a smooth, successful, and satisfying experience!

I obtained my real estate license 20 years ago. Back when there was no buyer agency. Being a single woman making the journey to homeownership on my own, I valued getting an education first, and there was planted the first seed when I obtained a real estate license for personal purposes. After purchasing a 3rd investment property, and forever having my nose ‘in the market’, I decided to take a giant leap of faith, leave the business world behind, and begin a career in real estate - fondly referred to as ‘going from the fire into the frying pan”! Every day is interesting, fueled with adrenaline, and exciting!

Purchasing or selling a home is a huge event in your life. Hire a seasoned agent who is equally dedicated to your goal! I both recognize, and appreciate, the magnitude of your decision to buy, or sell. Whether you are a potential seller, or, buyer client, I am committed to providing you with full service, time, and attention. In order to deliver exemplary service, I limit the number of clients I am working with at any given time. Many homebuyers and homesellers have placed their confidence and trust in me, repeatedly. My past clients have endorsed me wholeheartedly. My 100% satisfaction rating (via independent survey) is reflective of the dedication I bring to every transaction. All agents are not created equal. Choose to work with an agent who is spirited, enthusiastic, and successful. You deserve no less.
