A native of the Washington metro area, Mary Lynn has loved houses for as long as she can remember. She renovated two homes before the age of 20 and obtained her real estate license at age 21, before briefly exploring a different career path where she successfully operated a chain of fashion merchandising schools and served as a buyer for high-end luxury goods.
Over the past 20 years, Mary Lynn has devoted herself full time to her true passion of real-estate, where her in-depth market knowledge and expertise in ensuring seamless transactions have formed the foundation of her ever-growing business. Her keen eye for design, savvy negotiation skills, and ability to develop an immediate rapport with clients have enabled her to effectively assist clients at every stage of the search and sell process.
It’s no wonder she’s ranked in the top 1% of real estate agents nationwide!
Though her life's course has entailed traveling the world – and even getting her pilot's license – today, Mary Lynn keeps both feet on the ground at home in the Palisades where she lives with Wallace, her 12-year-old Maltese.
"No challenge is too big for Mary Lynn. Her market expertise, unparalleled attention to detail, and deep network delivered what we thought was impossible. In just one week, she meticulously prepared our home to stand out in the Chevy Chase, DC market, listed the home at the perfect price point, and ensured we were under contract with multiple offers over asking. The sale of our home proved to be a smooth, positive, and profitable process from beginning to end and we owe it all to Mary Lynn."

"This is the fourth house that we've entrusted to Mary Lynn and her team. Regardless of size and price, they treat each of our homes with the same level of attention, professionalism and passion. Tom and I couldn't imagine buying or selling without Mary Lynn."

"Mary Lynn White is the consummate professional and the most effective realtor I have seen. She has guided me through 11 home purchases or sales over 20 years. Mary Lynn really does her homework regarding comparables and purchase price. For sales, she helps to stage the property in a highly effective way. For purchases, she understands market conditions and most expertly can guide the bid structure/process. In addition, Mary Lynn is very personable and easy to work with. In my view, one could simply not find a better agent."

"I recently sold my home and knew I wanted to use Mary Lynn as my agent. I watched as she successfully staged and marketed 5 homes in my neighborhood, many getting multiple offers above similar sold homes. I was overwhelmed with the thought of getting rid of household items that had accumulated over the years. Mary Lynn put together a plan with a list of resources (organizers, contractors, donation pickups etc.) that enabled me to accomplish everything quickly and efficiently. We staged my home with her guidance and sure enough the house sold over asking. She is the consummate professional and I have recommended her to several friends who felt exactly the same way."
