LYNNE EINLEGER, ABR, SFR
I was born in New York City and raised in Miami, FL. I graduated in 1974 from the University of South Florida, with a BA in Special Education. My family’s business, Einleger Enterprises, was a company that represented 30 textile & trimmings firms based in NYC. I joined their staff at age 11! Upon graduation from college, 2 firms they represented offered me employment; I joined the smaller company and returned to live and work in NYC. I spent the next 13 years working in sales and production in the clothing industry.
I subsequently sought a greater challenge. I found my niche in the Sales Skills Training business. I joined a small firm, which grew to become the 12th largest in the United States. I became a partner in 1995 and was the top producer consistently for many years. The company franchised in 2002; I then became the sales trainer/coach/mentor for our franchisees.
I first visited Santa Fe in 1983 and knew I’d live here someday. I visited frequently over the next few years. I met my husband, who has deep roots in Santa Fe, in 1993. We married and then adopted a child from China in 1999. Our plan was to leave NYC and re-settle in Santa Fe before our daughter started first grade.
I had suspected, prior to moving, that the travel schedule of my former position would be undesirable once I moved. I actually began my real estate training in advance of our move by observing Realtors at the Real Estate brokerage that helped us purchase and sell our co-op. I decided the business would suit me well, given my love for helping people, my sales experience, focus on detail and my desire for flexibility and control of my own business.
After completing my studies, I interviewed 9 companies then chose Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty, LTD. I became a multimillion dollar producer in my second year, survived the recession and have gone on to become an International Sterling and Diamond Society member.
I have now been a Realtor for 13+ years. As hard as it is, I increasingly love what I do and look forward to helping you fulfill your real estate goals.
