June Agent Spotlight: Mark Lynett

Mark Lynett, Real Estate AgentMark Lynett’s love for Cape Cod knows no bounds. Whether he’s exploring quaint streets with charming cottages, hiking the dunes, or capturing captivating sunrise views with his camera, he knows he is truly privileged to share this corner of Massachusetts with his clients and friends. Mark is a proud resident of Provincetown, and as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, he places a special value on the inclusive environment the town provides. Read on to discover how Mark got started in the industry, his favorite spots on the Cape, and the profound impact that Provincetown has had on his personal and professional journey.

What did you do before real estate and how did you get started in the business?


My background prior to real estate was in Property Management. My first gig was as an Assistant Property Manager to more than two hundred units in Greensboro, North Carolina. I was eventually promoted to property manager, but then relocated to South Florida, where I became a licensed real estate agent. I remember taking the test outside under tents because over 1000 people were seated for the exam! They graded it right in front of me. The passing grade was a 75, and I earned a 76! Twenty-six years later, I have four real estate licenses: broker’s licenses in North Carolina, New York, and Massachusetts, and a sales license in Florida.

What is something your clients find comfort in that makes them turn to you for their real estate needs?  

My clients have repeatedly praised me on my attention to detail through every stop of a transaction. I always strive to keep my clients well-informed while swiftly addressing any issues that come up to avoid any surprises. This builds a foundation of trust and gives them the confidence to put their important transaction in my hands.

What do you love most about where you live and work? 

Living on Cape Cod feels like living at the end of the earth. It's a tiny sandbar surrounded by water, with side streets with vintage cottages and some of the most colorful gardens one can imagine. 

Provincetown is particularly close to my heart as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. I think we can all remember a time in our lives when we were not accepted or included for simply being the individual we are, but Provincetown welcomes all. Each member of our community has their own personal stories of how this town has shaped us. Even before moving here full-time, I recall how my visits guided important decisions in my life. It’s hard to put into words what Provincetown represents and how much it means, but inclusion and unconditional love for all are at the forefront. 

Any favorite activities or spots to check out on Cape Cod?  

I love to chase sunrises and sunsets with my camera. Photography is my go-to!  Capturing the pre-dawn light at 4:15 AM in the summertime is magical.

There are two trails I recommend to visitors on Cape Cod: The Dune Shack Trail, and Hatches Harbor and Race Point Lighthouse. Hiking these trails is an incredibly memorable experience, filled with captivating views.

What are three sources of joy in your week? 

1. I find joy in being surrounded by the National Seashore and Mother Nature's acts of beauty.

2. I always keep two running to-do lists: one for work, and one for my personal life. These lists are always with me. I find great joy in checking off completed items!

3. There is a special kind of joy in waking at 2:00 AM to hear contemplative conversations as two individuals walk down your street. Or better yet, hearing a group of friends holding hands, skipping & singing "We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of oz!” Only in Provincetown!
