Company founder, Lynne Perlmutter, practically grew up in Western North Carolina, in Pisgah Forest, even though she was born and raised in Miami. She moved to NC full time in 2007 with her young family so they could know that indescribable feeling you get sitting on a big rock in the middle of a gently rushing river. She worked her way back to the mountains via Charlotte (2007-2013) and towards Tryon thru Bright’s Creek in nearby Mill Spring (2013-2015). When Tryon International Equestrian Center came to town in 2014, she knew the area was on the verge. Since its inception, Around Tryon Properties has successfully served clients with a wide range of needs, plans, and financial resources providing fresh, technologically savvy and world class professional experiences to this very beautiful, quiet corner of the world.

Lynne was educated at the prestigious Ransom Everglades School in Coconut Grove, Florida. She attended Vanderbilt University, University of Paris, Sorbonne, and graduated with a BA from The University of Florida. She began her career assistant producing TV commercials, then started the Financial Public Relations division of a boutique investment banking firm in Miami. In 1990, she co-founded Miami O Guia, the first glossy full sized up market guide to Miami, written in Portuguese, specifically targeted to the then surging influx of Brazilian visitors. In 2000, she started her career in real estate as a residential appraiser then as an agent at EWM Realty in Miami. Her family re-located to Charlotte in 2007, and during the market downturn she worked in residential sales, helping investors build rental portfolios. As the market started to recover, she became more interested in second home and vacation home properties in the western NC mountains. This niche market has proven to be a treasure trove of undervalued properties which have yet to recover to pre-bubble prices. Below market values, a temperate climate, dream location, a surge in the number of empty nesters and retires looking to make their next move, and the sudden global recognition from Tryon Equestrian Center, makes Tyron the place to be.
