I was born and raised in Chicago and moved to Ormond Beach in 2007 when I quickly fell in love with the area. I graduated from the University of West Florida with a Finance and Management degree and also received my MBA from Valdosta State University, where I graduated with honors.
Whether it’s buying or selling, my goal is to make the real estate process smooth and less stressful. I pride myself in teaching my clients instead of “telling”, and I focus on honesty, integrity, and professionalism in ALL of my transactions.
I have always had an independent and entrepreneurial mindset, and this began to manifest when I started my own “business” selling handmade crafts to my classmates in school when I was 11 years old. I quickly learned the value of quality customer service and follow-through, and I bring this to all of my transactions. I am an avid listener of Zig Ziglar and live by one of his quotes, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” I am proactive and passionate about the needs and goals of my clients and commit to excellent customer service and expertise.
When not working I enjoy cooking running, and spending time with my husband, Jonathan, and our three children.
Ratings & Reviews
Lyn is an excellent real estate agent. She is very patient and knowledgeable and knows how to find a great deal! She has been wonderful in helping me find investment properties that will give me a high return on my investment.
Lyn was delightful to have as my realtor. Very responsive and helpful throughout the process. We looked at many properties over a 8 month period and she was dedicated and on top of new listings. Highly recommend!
Yesterday we purchased a home with Agent Lyn Gildon. I can't say enough about how wonderful Lyn is and the whole Gildon Team. Lyn has the patience of a saint. She listened to all of our likes and dislikes and never took us to homes that weren't what we were looking for. This is the second purchase that we have made using the Gildon Team. Jonathan also had the patience of a saint! I don't have to think twice about recommending the Gildon Team to help you find your next purchase. They are AWESOME!
She was so ready to help! No matter how small the property we were looking at. She also was so available and made every effort to get us into anything we wanted to see. Will definitely use her again! Highly recommend
Having worked with Lyn for a full year before purchasing a home, I have amassed a great deal of experience about what it's like to work with her. Lyn is a professional, effective and efficient realtor. At times I joked that I was convinced she worked only for me, which of course was not the case. With every interaction, she demonstrated high attention to detail and her commitment to helping me find the right home for me. While every buyer is unique, there are attributes we all share, including busy lives, priorities competing for our attention, and natural feelings of stress and occasional uncertainty about the buying process. I made a cross country move to Florida and whether taking video of newly listed properties for my consideration, negotiating price and terms on my behalf, or answering my (many!) questions as they arose, Lyn's performance was exemplar. She was an advocate for me throughout the process, even as I negotiated with myself about important decisions. If she lost patience with me, it never showed. She was consistently diligent throughout our year of shopping together. Lyn's performance sets the bar very high for other realtors in the area competing for sellers' and buyers' business.
Lyn was such a pleasure to work with. Not only was she very knowledgeable about all the homes we looked at, but she never made us feel pressured to put in offers when we were unsure if we really loved it. Working night shifts makes scheduling showings a bit more difficult, but Lyn quickly made appointments that met our needs. She must have shown us 20 houses, and she never grew impatient with us. Lyn was there to help us through every step of our home buying experience, and we can’t thank her enough. Even after all the papers were signed she still cares enough to check on how we’re doing. I would recommend Lyn to everybody looking to buy a home.
Lyn came highly recommended from an out-of state realtor, and she has greatly surpassed all of our expectations: If we could give Lyn 10 stars, we gladly would! Lyn is an exceptional agent and we enjoyed every aspect of working with her. She is very responsive, meticulous in her follow up, and extremely knowledgeable on the local market. This was invaluable for us out of state buyers. She had incredible patience and a wealth of knowledge. And I felt she always was willing to go the extra mile. Besides being the best and most professional realtor we could ever have hoped for, Lyns fun and easy going personality made this a very enjoyable experience. We highly recommend reaching out to her.
In our 50 years of marriage we have purchased and sold many residential properties, and worked with many realtors in the process. Lyn has met and vastly exceeded our expectations in all areas of homebuying, from finding the home that meets our current needs and requirements, but also fits within our budget. Times have changed and we are not as computer savy as we would like to be. Lyn worked with us every step of the way assisting us with computer related matters. She made it a pleasant experience for both of us. Peter and Donna Turgeon
Lyn is the nicest and most professional realtor my husband and I have worked with. Her negotiating skills are unsurpassed ensuring we purchased our land at a fair price. Her extensive knowledge of the process helped make the transaction go smooth. It was a true pleasure having Lyn as our realtor.
I am from PA, and Lyn was wonderful (and patient) with me since I didn't really know the area I was looking in Florida. She always answered all my questions (even if it needed research). She was always quick to get back to me. This was my first buying experience, and she led me by the hand the whole way. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
I cannot begin to express what an amazing experience we had working with Lyn Gildon! She is incredibly personable, professional, thoughtful, funny, knowledgeable, accommodating, flexible, and committed to giving her clients a premiere experience. She responds almost instantly when contacted, and goes above and beyond anything you ask of her before, during, and after the sale. She simply would not stop (and still has not) doing anything and everything to make sure we were satisfied with our purchase. I could not have asked for a better experience with a more perfect agent. If you are looking for an agent, by all means look no further. You found the best one there is, hands down! I will always be forever thankful for her.
Lyn is amazing. I knew Lyn outside of realty and when I found out she was doing this I immediately called her. I am not easy to please, yet she was able to do so and get me through everything. Her insight and logical thinking helped me avoid a bad decision and plopped me right into my new house. I couldn't have been happier with her. Everyone told me that buying a house was the worst two months of their life... they should have had Lyn. Thank you for being so awesome!
Lyn is such a great realtor. She was very helpful throughout the whole process in finding and buying our home. Being first-time home buyers it was a new experience for us. Lyn was there the whole way guiding us and helping us through the whole process. She answered any and all questions to the best of her knowledge.
Lyn was amazing through our entire process of buying our home. My husband and I were new to the home buying process. I was a nervous wreck and Lyn talked me though each part of the process. Lyn never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She was very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. She showed us many homes and was very patient. Lyn always treated us so kindly. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an honest and trustworthy realtor. Lyn helped make our dreams reality. Words can not explain how grateful I am to have worked with Lyn.
Lyn was extremely helpful, patient with us and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. She was at every appt with us and made sure we understood the process of everything happening. Could not have asked for a better agent.
Lyn is AWESOME! I'm the daughter of two former realtors, and so I'm not easily impressed. Lyn went above and beyond to help us find the prefect condo. On day one, we saw properties I found online. They weren't what we were looking for. Lyn took mental notes and paid careful attention to what we liked and didn't like. She did some research and texted me to meet her the next day to see some more properties. Each one was better than the next. We found our dream condo, made our offer, had settlement and moved in today. Our new condo is beautiful. Lyn totally nailed it! The entire process was smooth from start to finish. Thanks so much Lyn.
If you want a realtor that cares more about you as a buyer this is your realtor. I cannot say enough good things about Lyn. She went out of her way to pick me up and cart me all over town because I had broken my kneecap. She went to look at properties, sent me pictures, answered my phone calls immediately, kept in touch and never gave up on finding me a home. At 60 years old this was my first home purchase on my own and honestly I could not have done it without Lyn. She is honest, caring and does not forget you once you have closed on your home. I think that 5 stars just are not enough when it comes to my experience with her. I would give her a 10 star review if I could.
I want to say that of all my years working with realtors lyn has been the most impressive to me. she made me feel so comfortable in my transaction to purchase land . she answered all my questions , she was honest with me for letting me know that the land was not zoned for mobile homes only houses. as I decided to still go ahead with the purchase she informed me that the title company could not give title insurance on the property, the owner of the land called me and tried to convince me that title insurance was not necessary, at that point I had to come to a decision and I decided to end the deal for the reason that I did not know the owner personally or his credibility. and because of lyn's honesty to me I had my trust in her. who knows in the future if I would have bought without title insurance what would have happened. so yes I would highly recommend lyn to others and I myself will contact her on my next purchase. thank you lyn for all your help.
The best experience ever buying a home. Lyn was so patient and helpful in every way. She was professional and dedicated to helping us through the whole process. Thank you Lyn!!
My husband and I started our home buying process and really had no idea what we wanted and where we wanted to be since we were new to the area. We ran across Lyn by sheer luck and she was a perfect fit for us. Lyn was available to us regardless of our sometimes difficult work schedules. She paid attention to what we liked and didn't like in homes and was able to direct us to homes that offered the things that were important to us. She patiently showed us a lot of homes! Yesterday we closed on what we are sure was a perfect choice for us! She negotiated a great deal on our behalf and we can't wait to get in and make it ours! You want someone to help you with your home purchase that isn't pushy, won't harass or pressure you and is willing to help you find the best place for you- Lyn is who you want to call! We are so blessed to have met her.
Lyn, I could not have had anyone as good as you and to work as hard as you did on looking for a house for me, and to be patient with me, especially in the price range I was looking for. I would definitely recommend you. You are my friend now!
Lyn was extremely helpful in helping us find our new home. She was always quick to respond to requests and questions. Once she pieced together my feedback and figured out what we were looking for, she really helped narrow the field of choices and we were in our home quickly. She is an agent that you can trust and rely upon to do what's in your best interest.
