Lynn Reecer is the Founder and CEO of Northeast Indiana Talent, Inc. Known in the community as an entrepreneur, philanthropist, connector, and community advocate, Northeast Indiana Talent Attractions, Inc. is an extension of Lynn’s belief in the region and its mission to attract top talent and improve quality of life. As a serial entrepreneur, Lynn is consistently a leader in the area for new and innovative approaches to business; she owns three companies, including Brookwood Cabinet Co., supplying custom and semi-custom, high-quality cabinetry, counters, and hardware.
Lynn started Reecer Properties in 2010 as a boutique real estate firm based in Fort Wayne, and Syracuse, IN. She and her team’s great success in real estate is credited to a team business model of functional expert workhorses, providing white-glove service and exceptional sales results for their clients. She and her team have consistently been ranked 1st in sales volume out of 1,400 agents and teams for several years in a row in the NE Indiana MLS and in the top 5 in the state of Indiana.
In 2019, Encore Sotheby’s International Realty acquired Reecer Properties, allowing Lynn to focus her attention on her team, her clients, and her growing businesses. In 2019 Lynn earned the SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) designation, held by only 1% of Realtors nationwide. SRES® designees have unparalleled training and experience in serving seniors (50+) with their home downsizing needs or transfers to assisted living.
As part of her commitment to bettering the community, Lynn co-founded the Aboite New Trails, Inc. Under Lynn’s leadership, Aboite New Trails raised over $12M and built 20 miles of new bicycle and pedestrian trails throughout southwest Allen County. In 2010, Lynn led the merger to form Fort Wayne Trails, which now boasts a 100+ mile trail system that serves over 300,000 residents and visitors. During this time, Lynn was awarded Citizen of the Year by the Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne for her full-time volunteer contributions to the community over several years.
A native of Dayton, Ohio, Lynn earned her B.S. in Marketing from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. Lynn married Dr. Mark Reecer and eventually moved to his native Fort Wayne, where they raised their three children. Today Lynn and Mark are very social empty nesters who love sharing outdoor recreation and indoor entertaining time with family and friends in Fort Wayne, on Lake Wawasee and in Bonita Springs FL. Their travel time is usually taken up visiting their kids in Seattle, NYC and soon to be São Paulo Brazil.
