Lisa Byrne - COTR Realtor
I am a mother of a wonderful son and will celebrate my 30th Wedding Anniversary Sept 2021. I was blessed to grow up in a large extended family on an Iowa farm where common sense, discipline, hard work, and good grades were expected. Until I was on my own, I did not know this was not the case for many people. That is why I think COTR’s mission for improving parenting skills is so important. Although I sell houses, they need strong parents and families to be homes!
I am a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Specialist with nineteen years of experience selling properties throughout the Palm Beach area with a proven track record of success. I aspire to help people get their properties sold for the highest price in the least amount of time with the least hassle. My focus is on luxury properties, residential real estate, second homes and investment properties, and I am always happy to take referrals from my customers and friends!
I have a unique professional background that is a great asset to my customers. I have twenty years of technology product development/management and business consulting experience in addition to real estate. I excel at project management, market research and communication, and user experience. I leverage the best technology and real estate software tools for my customer’s advantage. I believe my energy and drive to provide an excellent buying and selling experience builds lasting business and personal relationships with my customers.
I love living in South Florida! Growing up on an Iowa dairy farm, going to college at Iowa State University, and living in Minnesota and other chilly winter states, I really appreciate South Florida’s warmth! I've enjoyed traveling the world, but love coming home to Florida! For over twenty years, I have been an active member in my community, raised my family here, extensively remodeled my home, and invested in my own income properties. As a veteran of six corporate relocations, I understand relocation concerns about schools, communities, and commuting. As a Certified Relocation Specialist I strive to make this transition seamless for my customers. I’m locally known, but globally connected. My connections aren’t just limited to South Florida — wherever you are in the world, I can refer you to a great realtor!
I care about my community. I grew up volunteering so it comes naturally to me. I’m always ready to plan a party and love baking and making chocolates! To de-stress, my side baking business is Luscious Treats by Lisa. My cakes are in high demand at SRCS fundraisers - in 2019 I was excited that my cakes raised $1800! For COTR events, I’m the one providing the treats! For the first COTR Tea, I baked dozens of my special scones. For the COTR Hoedown fundraiser, I baked dozens of delicious bar cookies! For the past 2 years, I’ve baked for the COTR Mother Daughter Tea providing 12 dozen of my citrus shortbread cookies (lemon, key lime, orange) to be mailed to everyone to make this virtual event special!
In my neighborhood, I have an annual Gingerbread House Building party and made it happen virtually these past year! In addition to the Cleft of the Rock Foundation, I support Habitat for Humanity, Make a Wish Foundation, AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse), Place of Hope, Ride4Orphans, Boca Helping Hands, and Susan G. Komen Foundation — Breast Cancer Research. I volunteer at Spanish River Christian Church and School as well as Saint Andrew’s School. I am proud to sponsor and mentor the award-winning Boca Raton 4-H Science & Tech Club — FIRST FRC Robotics Team 3932. The robotics team creates a family for many HS teens.
