Carlynn Matern
Sales Agent
  • 18 years experience helping buyers, sellers, renters, and landlords
  • Understands and supports the emotions of all real estate decisions and transactions
  • Long-time Park Sloper and Brooklyn Enthusiast

For 18 years, Carlynn has been delighted to help countless people find, sell, and rent their homes. Embracing Park Slope as one of the world’s most vibrant urban neighborhoods, she never tires of noticing new architectural details, discovering a previously unexplored path in Prospect Park, or marveling at the world-class triumphal arch in Grand Army Plaza. After leaving a twenty-year career in Marketing and Promotion at various publishing companies like St. Martin's Press, Pearson, Scholastic, Macmillan, and McGraw-Hill, Carlynn adventured to Zurich, Switzerland in 1997 with her husband Ted and daughter Claire. They rented out their Park Slope brownstone and settled for three years in the cobble-stoned village of Horgen on Lake Zurich, and traveled through London, Paris, Milan, Vienna, Lyon, and Nice. Upon her return, Carlynn applied the skills and negotiating savvy she honed from years of managing a creative staff in publishing to a successful career in real estate.

Favorite Local Store: Hiller & Moon
A large selection of cheeses, charcuterie, bread, and olives, as well as chocolates and baked goods. My husband, Ted, a trained chef, was the general manager of Dean & DeLuca, Soho and Gourmet Factory, Zurich. When we returned to Park Slope, he was excited to open a specialty food store in our home neighborhood.

Feels like you've escaped to the Adirondacks for a wonderful retreat.
I worked with Carlynn when I recently bought an apartment in Windsor Terrace. Right from the beginning, I felt comfortable. She is no-nonsense, honest and trustworthy. She immediately put me at ease and made the entire buying process simple. When I need a broker in the future, I will use Carlynn.

Carlynn’s knowledge of the real estate market in Park Slope and Windsor Terrace runs deep and wide. I was new to the market when I wandered into one of her Open Houses, and she took the time to give me a thorough education that ultimately turned me from a looker into a buyer.

I purchased my apartment working with Carlynn and she was fantastic. Not only very personable, bright, and interested, she is extremely knowledgeable (names, floor plans, local history, pets - I mean nothing escapes!), honest, empathetic and patient. Carlynn was an absolute pleasure to work with and really smoothed my transition into the co-op where I now live and which I love!

We worked with Carlynn when we bought our apartment and again twelve years later when we sold it. We were impressed with her honesty and expert knowledge of the area. She understands the market and doesn’t waste her clients’ time. We couldn’t have been happier with her results.
