Lynne Paskert Brown
Lynne became a licensed real estate professional after 24 years in sales and marketing in the healthcare and educational industries. A native of South Tampa, Lynne graduated from Plant High School and Clemson University where she was awarded a full athletic scholarship for tennis! Marrying soon after graduating from Clemson, Lynne soon returned to her roots in South Tampa.
She began spending as much time as possible on Little Gasparilla Island in 1988 when the first Paskert property was purchased on LGI. She knows the island thoroughly and appreciates all it has to offer. Under her mom's (Sue Paskert, a top producing realtor in South Tampa and on LGI) real estate tutelage, Lynne learned to successfully sell real estate for clients in both unique markets of South Tampa and Little Gasparilla Island.
Lynne's Commitment to Clients - Lynne is known for her ability to communicate openly and honestly at all times. She works tirelessly to understand and meet all of her clients' real estate needs. Lynne looks forward to working with you!
George moved to Tampa in 1946 with his family. He attended Jesuit High School and received a BS in Accounting from The University of Tampa.
He received his Certified Public Accountant Certificate and was associated with local and international CPA firms for over 20 years. He is a lifetime member of both the Florida and American Institutes of Certified Public Accountants. Public accounting was followed by Corporate Employment in the Automotive Industry. The combination provided a broad base of business experience in both the public and private sectors.
George became a Licensed Real Estate Professional in 2004 and assisted Sue in handling client real estate needs particularly related to the unique aspects of the Little Gasparilla Island market. George's gentle manner and hospitality run deep. He truly loves people and thoroughly enjoys showing off the island he and Sue embraced so many decades ago.
In Memory of Sue Paskert
8/14/1940 - 6/16/2017
Sue came to South Tampa in 1945. She graduated from Plant High School and received a degree in education from The University of Tampa. Teaching grades 2 through 10 at public and private schools in the area, Sue and her husband George raised their family in Tampa.
After retiring from teaching, Sue became a licensed real estate associate and quickly climbed to the top of the real estate market in south Tampa earning many top producing awards. In 1988, Sue and George purchased their first family retreat on Little Gasparilla Island at Hideaway Bay Beach Club. It was an island love affair from the beginning. They later sold the condo and bought a beautiful single-family home on the south end of the island. Sue always felt there was nothing better than a family get-away place on LGI!
On October 9, 1996 Sue learned she had leukemia. She was forced to leave her Real Estate business and work solely on getting healthy. After 7 1/2 years of fighting, she won the fight against leukemia and lived a healthy, happy life working in the business that she loved: Real Estate!
However, in the spring of 2017 Sue and her family were stunned by the news that she had yet another kind of cancer and the battle, which Sue had been so brave in fighting, was lost on June 16th. Words cannot convey how much she will be missed. Sue left a legacy and a reputation to which we, her family, are fully committed.
Dedicated to a "Client-First" philosophy!
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional: Integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of Lynne and George's real estate careers. As south Tampa and Little Gasparilla Island Real Estate Professionals, they have found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting clients first. This means keeping themselves accessible, personally showing their listings, being good listeners as well as good communicators, and responding quickly to clients' needs.
This "client first" philosophy was always Sue's approach. She and George instilled it in their daughter, Lynne. Honest, hard work, and a willingness to serve others are the virtues that Sue & George passed on to Lynne. Now that the Real Estate baton has been handed off to Lynne and George, Sue's"client first" legacy lives on!
