A second-generation John Daugherty agent, Lynn Zeid inherited a love of real estate from her father. After purchasing and selling real estate as personal investments for nearly 20 years, Lynn decided to become a Realtor — a profession whom many friends predicted she would excel at quickly. As expected, Lynn ascended quickly, and within three short years at the firm was ranked as a Top Producer at John Daugherty, Realtors, Houston’s leading luxury firm.
Lynn has been a resident of Houston for more than 39 years and currently lives in West University. “I’m an Inner Loop enthusiast. I love all the different ‘flavors’ found within the loop!” she says. Skilled at networking, conflict resolution and negotiation, she loves helping families find the ideal homes for their needs and budgets. She’s attuned to utilizing social media to market properties — a tool many Realtors often overlook. Lynn acquired her Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE™) designation in 2012 and received her Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE™) in April 2014 (a designation fewer than 500 real estate agents have earned in North America). As an accredited member of the Institute of Luxury Home Marketing by earning the esteemed CLHMS designation, Lynn has demonstrated success in both buying and selling in the top ten percent of the Houston luxury market.
A graduate of the University of Houston with a B.A. in Public Relations and Communications, Lynn worked for 14 years as a development director for nonprofits, including Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and Houston Ballet, as well as for RITE, a division of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™. Her former career taught her the importance of “putting the right people together to obtain a common objective.” She says, “I’m incredibly proud of the growth of the nonprofits I had the honor to work with for so many years. Knowing I played a role in each organizations’ progress and success is a wonderful feeling.”
