lynette neesenLynette Neesen, Broker Associate. Originally from the east coast, Lynette graduated from Cornell University’s Hospitality Program, and went on to work 15 years with Hyatt Hotels as a Director of Human Resources, and Corporate Director of Sales Training. This educational background and work experience evolved into a passion to assist others in achieving their dreams.

A desire for something other than a traditional corporate lifestyle prompted her relocation to Buena Vista.  Over the last fifteen years, she has grown to truly appreciate a simplified way of life as an integral part of this supportive, caring community.  

Lynette earned a Broker Associate License in 2002.  After dedicating time to her young family, she returned to the work force and became involved in a number of local real estate development projects, then joined Pinon Real Estate Group - BV in 2009.  Now that her two incredible daughters are increasingly independent, she contributes as a full-time Broker Associate, focusing on developing successful, long-term relationships with her clients.

Compassion, integrity and knowledge in real estate together with authentic personal connection will simplify your search for the perfect property. Visit with Lynette about all of your real estate needs.
