Lynn Hampton

Senior Real Estate Consultant



Lynn Hampton is a native Atlantan and a successful real estate agent who offers clients a unique perspective to buying and selling real estate in the Atlanta area. Lynn has been a realtor for more than eight years and has lived and worked in different areas around Atlanta, so she knows the city and its vast suburbs. This knowledge has given her an edge over many agents.


Lynn translates her Atlanta knowledge into assisting homebuyers with listing the best price for the area or making sure a buyer doesn’t overpay. She has worked with both the Atlanta condo buyer/seller and the suburban home buyer/seller which gives her a unique combination of expertise that most agents don’t have. Typically, agents either focus on the condo market or the suburban home market, but rarely do agents have expertise in both, and this translates into knowledge her clients greatly appreciate.


Through her many years in real estate, Lynn has worked with homebuyers in practically every price range — giving her great negotiating skills. Prior to being a realtor, Lynn worked in education at the college level working with faculty at both Mercer University and Georgia Tech. Lynn is an agent who listens to her clients’ needs and desires and assists them throughout the complete home buying or selling process. Lynn is an agent that clients can trust and enjoy working with when buying or selling a home.
