My journey into real estate began when I received a BA from Michigan State in Interior Design and Business. I’ve always been drawn to beautiful homes and architecture, so I’m fortunate to have found a career that I’m truly passionate about. As such, I spend time educating myself on the latest market trends, programs, and legislation so as to best advise my clients.
My career in real estate has grown over 15 years, during that time I have cultivated an expansive portfolio of both residential and commercial properties in the area. However my expertise and passion has always remained in the Lake Oswego and Portland Metro areas. My formal qualifications include accreditations from CRS, ALHS, SFR, NCIDQ and I am a Diamond PMAR Club member, as well as a member of several other real estate organizations.
Finally, it’s an immense source of personal pride that from 2010 through 2021 I have received the John L. Scott Presidential award, recognizing my efforts in helping clients achieve their homeownership goals.
Being active in the local community is important to me. Since living in Lake Oswego, I have served on the Chamber of Commerce, the Lake Oswego Historic Board, the Karen Gaffney Foundation, the National Charity League, and numerous school committees. Currently I am a member of The Friends of Timberline and the Lake Oswego Arts Council.
When not fulfilling my board commitments, I enjoy volunteering at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, working with the Down Syndrome Network of Portland, and the Mount Hood Meadows Children's Ski Program.
It’s my job to ensure every real estate transaction goes as smoothly as possible for all parties involved. I oversee every detail of the sale including inspections, appraisals, title, escrow, and loan processes. Buying or selling a home can be an amazing experience if you have the proper support. I’m here to walk you through the process, protect and encourage you, and see you across the finish line of not just a house, but the best home. My goal is to assist you however I can and to have you remain a client of mine for life.
"Lynda was very supportive and attentive to all our needs as we approached the sale of our home. We had lived in our home for over 20 years. She had an answer to every question. She took the anxiety away from the sale of our home and made it a pleasant experience. Lynda's knowledge and experience provided us with the steady support we needed throughout the entire process, We were in a rush and she got us the best price from a well-qualified buyer. She was fabulous, we would recommend her to anyone thinking of buying or selling their home. We have told all of our neighbors as well as all 6 of our adult children of the excellent experience we had with Lynda in selling our home."
"Being a first-time home buyer can be incredibly stressful; however, Lynda made the process enjoyable. She was candid, provided great feedback, clearly explained all details, and brilliantly managed the actual sale negotiation. Lynda was responsive to my questions, no matter how small. I highly recommend Lynda to anyone buying/selling their first home!”
“Lynda O'Neill has mastered all aspects of the real estate profession. She may be the most helpful person I know. From the moment we contacted her, she began researching, communicating, and planning our visits. We were out-of-town buyers and greatly appreciated how efficient she made our house hunting trips. She was willing to work morning till night, previewed listings, scheduled our showings perfectly, made us feel like we were her only buyers, and educated us on the pros and cons of each Portland neighborhood. She was creative in negotiations. We ended up with a beautiful new home and great investment due to her dedication and efforts. I highly recommend calling Lynda for your home search.”
"Working with Lynda O'Neill was a great experience from start to finish. Lynda is not only extremely knowledgeable about the Lake Oswego housing market, she was super helpful in educating us on the area. I'm convinced we wouldn't be in our home today if it weren't for Lynda's persistence and very effective negotiating skills. Lynda has become much more than just our agent and we consider her a family friend. Highly recommend!"
"Lynda works hard to make sure you have made a good investment, she treats you as an extension of her family."
