Print Agent Bio

Lynn Marshall began her Real Estate career, an avocation she inherited from her father, longtime developer George  Marshall shortly after graduating from the University of Oregon in the 1980's.  Lynn has had an illustrious career involving  some of the most renowned developments in the area such as Forest Heights, Claremont and Charbonneau, as well  as opening and running a real estate office in Forest Heights. With an uncommon level of personal service, throughout  her career Lynn has frequently exceeded $25 million in annual sales.  She is a highly experienced, people-centric real  estate professional, and possesses an ability to choreograph successful residential sales and purchases.  And, as an  experienced negotiator, Lynn is a powerful advocate throughout the transaction and particularly if difficulties arise.   

A part of our city since 1852, the Marshall family is proud to have their name represent the "M" street in Portland''s  alphabet district.  Lynn lives with her two daughters in Forest Heights where her roots run deepest and where she is also  involved in the Forest Heights Community Engagement Committee.

Lynn is the ultimate professional. She has been the premier realtor in Portland for a very long time, and it shows. From day 1 her advice was spot on, and it was no surprise that she sold our home in 1 day. I can’t imagine being in better hands!

Dear Lynn, We would like to thank you for your help in the sale of our home in Forest Heights." Your excellent sales and marketing plan resulted in a quick sale at a great price. Your knowledge of the market and community is very beneficial to anyone buying or selling a home in Forest Heights. Also, your professional service made for a smooth escrow close and relocation back to California. It was a pleasure working with you and we would highly recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area.

— Richard and Sheila Knight

I was fortunate to meet Lynn Marshall recently as I purchased a lot in Forest Heights. As a new builder in the Forest Heights community, Lynn was very instrumental in directing me on the needs and desires of prospective buyers. She has also kept me up to date on the sales and market information in the area. With Lynn's help and sales expertise, it did not take long to secure a sale for the home I had under construction and had only half way completed. I would most eagerly recommend Lynn Marshall for either buying or selling a home. I look forward to having Lynn market my future projects.

— Hans Finke

I am happy to refer anyone to you for expertise and professionalism in real estate transactions. You have helped my parents in finding a new home which will enrich their lives well into the future. It is good to know someone like you who has the integrity and knowledge to make a positive difference in people's lives. Your personable and efficient approach is an asset in helping people make major life decisions. We especially liked your infinite attention to the details of the home buying experience, your ready availability with state of the art opinions, and your seasoned and thoughtful counsel in making these major life decisions. My parents are very satisfied with your attention in their needs and feel secure in their knowledge of having made the right choice in a home. Denise and I are grateful for your sensitive approach to helping my parents find the right fit for them. Best wishes in the future.

When you stopped by the other day with the fantastic flowers, you could see how much Karen and I are enjoying our new house on Pinnacle. Your visit reminded us of how appreciative we are for our handling of the showing and sale of our house on Hazeltine. In both recent transactions, the purchase of our present home and the sale of the other house, the processes were handled with aplomb. There was practically no stress or strain on us during the whole endeavor. You and your staff were prompt and reliable in answering questions, in following up on commitments and in making the whole process enjoyable, not the least of which was the friendly faces we always found in your office. It was pleasing to find a realtor who was professional and knowledgeable as you have been in the purchase of new property and the sale of our former home.

I would like to highly recommend Lynn Marshall and her team, as your agent. Lynn and her team were very responsive to our needs throughout the entire listing, selling and now the closing process. We opted to select Lynn and her team, however, we set a price higher than what Lynn recommended and in the end the sales price was quite close to the initial recommendation by Lynn to begin with, giving even more evidence of her understanding of the market. I believe the market knowledge and support by Lynn and her staff has set her apart compared to many of the agents we have seen or heard about in the area. Best Regards, Jim Rosa

Thanks to Lynn Marshall for her professional service in selling our home! We chose Lynn Marshall because she knows Forest Heights. When driving around the neighborhood, I saw many signs. Many of them listed Lynn Marshall as the realtor. Choosing a realtor can be a daunting task. There are so many and we had not lived in the area very long. When we had to sell our home, we thought of Lynn Marshall and called and received immediate response. Lynn met with us and told us about her commitment to Forest Heights. She provided information about her office and history in the neighborhood. Who would better meet our needs as a realtor who only sells Forest Heights? The process for our family was not easy. Ours was a relocation which presents itself with different challenges. Lynn assured us that she had experience in this area and took care of us in the process relaying information to buyer, seller and the relocation company. Most importantly, she took care of our family after our home was sold. We had special problems because we required temporary housing. Lynn stepped up and helped us with finding a place to stay. This was extremely helpful because it allowed our family to stay in our community, easing the transition for our daughters. Family is important to her and she understands that our family needed to be stable throughout this process. Our needs were met immediately. When we called the office, our questions were answered with prompt attention. We were always welcomed to drop by. The office staff knew us by name and provided wonderful service. We recommend Lynn Marshall to others in the area. Who can better serve your real estate needs than someone who is apart of the community?!

Dear Lynn, Now that we are settled into our new home, it's time to stop and put in writing what I hope we have expressed to you before. Thank you for your great advice and counsel as we went from listing our Forest Heights home, selling it, buying the condo and moving, all in less than six weeks!! It only happened because of your knowledge of the market, and the great support of your staff. Having your Rolodex of contractors and Katie's firm hand on their schedule and follow up brought it all together in time. Warm regards, Roy and Glenna Kruger

— Roy & Glenna Kruger

Betsy and I want to thank you for the professional services you provided during the sale of our Silver Ridge condominium. More than a few challenges confronted us during the sale, but you and your staff met them with a smile and were consistently available, helpful, and supportive. We were pleased that we could rely not only on you personally but on all of your staff for the same high level of friendly, professional support. We have bought and sold nine homes over the years, and that sort of teamwork is unique in our experience. It was a pleasure to work with you and your team. Our property moved quickly, and we can recommend your office without hesitation to anyone who is seeking real estate assistance in Forest Heights and the surrounding area.

— Dave Wilson

I am most pleased to recommend you to anyone who is interested in selling their home. When we first decided to list our home we gave the listing to a realtor friend, big mistake. Forest Heights is a unique market and it takes someone who knows the turf and history of the neighborhood. You gave us excellent information on putting a value on our home. Once we settled on a price, you and your staff made our job as sellers very easy. You kept us informed every step of the way with feedback and valuable information. Once we accepted an offer, you and your office were very involved in the closing process, such as home inspection, minor repair items and so on. I would highly recommend you and your staff for any real estate transaction.

— Jon Friesen

Dear Lynn, I would like to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful job you have done helping us sell our townhomes. As you know, we tried other realtors prior to listing our properties with you, and wish we had listed with you from the beginning. You have been incredibly helpful throughout the process. Your knowledge of the market, attention to details, frequent status reports and prompt and professional service have been a refreshing change and made it an absolute pleasure to work with you. We look forward to continuing to work with you to sell our remaining properties in the Forest Heights area. Very truly yours, Stephanie Utzman

— Stephanie Utzman

Lynn, As a family that has relocated from Boston, St. Louis, and now Portland, it is with much experience and gratitude that we thank you for the thorough and professional manner in which you have handled the sale of our Portland home. Real estate is stressful to approach as a buyer or seller, and we found your professional and personal touch helpful and second to none. From our first conversation, (which incidentally you returned our call from your vacation), to the final signing, you were always prepared and always available. Your market analysis was right on, and your experience with the market and reputation within the local real estate community encouraged immediate interest and quick location of the new owners. The sale of the property took place in less than 10 days and this was not accidental. Your expertise and continued attention to our property enables this to occur so quickly!! Thank you again for your help and please know that we sincerely appreciate the service that you have provided our family.

— Clark & Casey Tedrick

My wife and I had several options in choosing a Real Estate agent to market our home in Forest Heights. We were interested in listing with the Marshall Group because of their office location, but we really did not know much about their agency. Also, my employer offered relocation benefits through Cendant Mobility and encouraged us to list with either Coldwell Banker or Century 21. We decided to interview Lynn Marshall, Principal Broker, to see what she had to offer. Lynn impressed us so much during the interview that we decided to list our home with her without interviewing any other agency, regardless of losing any employer relocation benefits. We chose Lynn for the following reasons: she has an outstanding personality and is very enjoyable to work with; her staff is very professional and assisted us through-out the entire process; her office is very convenient to conduct business; and most importantly, she has a wealth of experience and superior knowledge of the Forest Heights market. Lynn's aggressive approach in marketing our home resulted in receiving the full offered price after only four days on the market! We were extremely pleased because she made the entire process very enjoyable and stress free. We highly recommend listing your home with Lynn Marshall.

— Brad & Jamie Kleinknecht

Just a short note to thank you for the way you handled the sale of our property. You were very professional in every way. You made the process enjoyable. I was impressed with the fact I could reach you almost anytime. It never took long to hear back from you even when you were with other clients. I have worked with some people in the past that were very difficult to get a hold of which is frustrating. When we needed estimates for maintenance or repair you took care of it. I think we had four different companies brought in. You handled the estimates with my approval and arranged for the work. This took a big burden off me and I really do appreciate it. I believe you handled the negotiations professionally and have a keen sense of your client's attitude. I know I needed to calm down once at least and you kept this in perspective. My wife and I thank you and would pass that along to any prospective client you may have.

— Jim Wilcox

To all of our Forest Heights Friends and Neighbors, We feel fortunate to have worked with Lynn during this current fast-paced market. Lynn presented a comprehensive marketing strategy to sell our home quickly and for top dollar. Not only is she a very experienced and knowledgeable realtor, who works for a leading agency with abundant resources, but she provided us with many little extras during this somewhat stressful period in our lives which helped to make the entire process smooth and worry free. She guided us through each step, from creating a realistic timeline to scheduling the excellent photographer and home stagers' with whom she works. She also provided us with top notch referrals for getting needed home upgrades completed on time and within budget. With Lynn's aggressive marketing plan in action, we were able to sell our home on the very first day it hit the market with a full price offer. We are now just days away from moving to our new home in Seattle and it would not be a stretch to say that Lynn made this all possible. We highly recommend Lynn to all of our friends and neighbors. With much gratitude, David Steiger and Karen Fog

— David Steiger & Karen Fog

Hi Lynn, We wanted you to know what an outstanding job you have done on our home sale, from beginning to end. As you know, this is the third time we have bought and sold through you and each time has been terrific. The whole process of planning a move, putting the house on the market, dealing with other realtors, making the home available for showings and open houses and then finally negotiating a sale can be very wearying and frustrating. You have made it almost... a pleasure! You've answered every question, represented us effectively with the potential and the eventual buyers and made the whole process work remarkably well. You are truly a professional and we have and will continue to recommend you and your office to anyone we know who is thinking about a move.

We would use Lynn as our realtor again and highly recommend her to others. It was a pleasure to work with her."

"If you are buying or selling a house in Forest Heights, then Lynn Marshall is the realtor for you. Lynn is a long-time resident of Forest Heights with extensive experience of the area. She knows the comps in-depth and helped guide us to appropriately price our home for sale. She gave excellent suggestions on what improvements to make prior to listing, such as landscaping updates, painting rooms and updating bathroom fixtures. She then provided access to her network of contractors to get the work done. After completing the home improvements and staging the main rooms, we listed our home in March. She held an open house the first weekend on the market and we received two offers within a week, with one at our asking price! My wife and I highly recommend Lynn Marshall to be your realtor. She is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and resourceful. We would not hesitate to use her services again in the future!"

"Lynn really delivered when it counted. I had to conduct a house sale from thousands of miles away, and the house required a lot of work before it would be presentable, so I needed someone on the ground in Portland on whom I could depend. I interviewed many brokers, but I picked Lynn because she clearly had a tremendous amount of experience and seemed to know every house in the neighborhood.

Lynn is a very hard worker, and she really earned her commission. She found the contractors and stagers that we needed, obtained multiple bids where appropriate (although her “go to” people generally turned out to be the low bidders), and oversaw the work. She let other service personnel in the house as needed. When the house finally went on the market, we priced it at the top of the recommended range, but received a full price offer within hours, and Lynn skillfully handled the bidding war and negotiations that followed. Our closing price was a fraction of 1% off the bank appraiser’s valuation, so Lynn was right on the money when pricing the house."
