Lynn celebrates 30 years in estate agency

September 2023

An indispensable member of the Greenslade Taylor Hunt branch at Tiverton celebrates 30 years in property sales today (September 27).

Lynn Smith MNAEA loves her role as Residential Manager, but it was chance that led her to a career in estate agency. She was looking for weekend work and found a position working in a Tiverton estate agent. From there, the role grew.

She thrives on the buzz of meeting clients, chasing sales, and finding buyers their dream home.

“It’s lovely when you sell a renovation project and go back to see if all transformed,” said Lynn, who has a penchant for period properties with lots of character.

Lynn has seen a lot in her years working in estate agency, from opening a stable door on a valuation and being met face-to-face with a giant Great Dane, to finding a teenager who had refused to vacate his bed mid-viewing!

There aren’t many people who know the property market in Tiverton quite like Lynn, who comments that the commuting links, combined with countryside beauty has an awful lot to offer, “Nothing else is very far away, what more could you want?!”

This in-depth knowledge of the local market ensures fellow property professionals and chartered surveyors call on her expertise to advise on pricing. 

Throughout her career she has witnessed all types of property markets, but her advice to clients remains the same – declutter your house to be photo ready and be patient! 

When asked what she loves about her work, Lynn said: 

“When you arrive in the morning you never know what the day will bring. I love the variety and meeting so many different people, the industry really suits people looking for such a diverse workload.”

With GTH offering apprenticeships and graduate schemes, Lynn has been at the frontline of seeing people starting out in their careers. 

“With the industry always evolving I think it’s vital that we all continue to learn, so it’s really lovely to be able to support others starting out in the world of estate agency,” she said.

GTH Chairman, Richard Webber said: “Many congratulations to Lynn, 30 years is a remarkable achievement and the acclaim she is now receiving for this landmark anniversary is extremely well deserved.  Lynn is without doubt one of the most experienced, professional and highly regarded agents in Mid Devon.”

Away from work, Lynn enjoys travelling all over the world, and spending time with her two grandchildren.
