Lynne Perlmutter has been a realtor for more than 20 years, and has helped clients in every aspect of the profession including appraising, marketing, managing, selling, renting, sourcing, re-habbing, flipping, investing and advising.  She practically grew up in Pisgah Forest in the southern Appalachians, even though she was born and raised in Miami.  She re-located to NC full time 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 in the deep woods.  She worked her way back to the mountains via Charlotte and Mill Spring to downtown Tryon, where she is now Broker in Charge of Cielo Real Estate .  Together with the rest of Cielo's founding brokers and agents, she is introducing fresh, technologically savvy real estate services experience 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 in 2013, she became more interested in second and vacation home properties in the western NC mountains. Great real estate values, a temperate climate, small town dream location and a surge in the number of empty nesters and retirees looking to make their next move, Tryon is her new focus.  For these and countless other reasons, including the sudden global recognition from Tryon International Equestrian Center, Tyron seems like a great place to be.
