I have enjoyed the pleasure of growing up on the prairies. Where else can you find wide open spaces, endless wheat fields and beautiful sunsets?
I was born in Scotland and immigrated to Canada at seven years old with my family. I grew up on the family dairy farm near Forrest, then spent a year in Prince Edward Island where my family moved in 1996, before returning to the Brandon area by myself and settling near Rapid City.
Much of my life has been spent riding and showing hunter/jumper horses and ponies. Once an Equine Canada judge, I am now giving back as a volunteer for the Canadian Pony Club and Little Saskatchewan River Pony Club recently formed by myself and two neighbours.
After completing the Rural Development and Applied Counselling programs at Assiniboine Community College, I was employed as the Outreach & Marketing Coordinator for a private treatment centre for 12 years. In 2010 I joined Sutton-Harrison Realty and have juggled a busy career as an award winning REALTOR® Ever Since.
My days are filled with helping my clients with their real estate investments, viewing homes, reviewing home inspections, negotiating contracts, putting up sold signs or handing over keys to new homeowners. As a primarily rural REALTOR®, I’m often on the road traveling to different towns, acreages and farms.
At the end of the day I come home to my supportive husband Mike and our beautiful daughters Laney and Libby on our own piece of prairie paradise where our girls are sharing my love for horses.
“Working with Lynne was a wonderful experience. We choose to go with Lynne after seeing her name on lots of houses for sale in our preferred area. Lynne had an excellent knowledge of the rural market and was a fantastic guide in our first house buying experience. We had let her know what we were hoping for in a home and in the end she found our perfect house. It was an exclusive listing so we would never have found it on our own. We absolutely love our house, it is so much better than anything we could have hoped for and ticks all our boxes. I would recommend Lynne to anyone buying (or selling) a Home. Thank you so much Lynne!” ~ Melonia
“Lynne Miller was absolutely amazing to deal with! She was our listing agent as well as our buying, and we were very satisfied with both experiences. When we listed our house, she helped us choose a fair market value and gave great advice when taking pictures and before each viewing. Lynne was honest and helped find our perfect home! She would point out potential concerns with properties and was diligent to stay within our budget. After we purchased our home, her follow through was incredible – she recommended local businesses to help ease the transition of moving and they were all wonderful to deal with. I would highly recommend Lynne Miller to any buyers and sellers; we look forward to working with her again!” ~ David & Jessica
“After a failed attempt to sell our home, and a negative experience with another real estate agent, Lynne came highly recommended by friends who’d had a positive experience with her. Lynne did a great job with the pictures, listing our house within the appropriate demographic and she worked very hard to market our home. Lynne was always very prompt and knowledgeable with regards to any of our questions, and was a great asset when purchasing our new home. We highly recommend Lynne and appreciate her service.” ~ Shane & Liane Terry
“Lynne was a great agent to work with. I bought and sold a property with Lynne and it didn’t matter which side she was working with, she always went above and beyond the call of duty to see that my interests were looked after. She has the experience to look at a property and foresee any areas that need to be clarified to the buyer. She is a hard worker and it didn’t matter what time of day or weekends, if you had a question, she was there to answer it. She worked well with the legal side of purchasing or selling and has the experience to work with lawyers in your best interest. I would recommend Lynne and will probably work with her in the future.” ~ Cindy Rose
“Lynne is a very professional, considerate and knowledgeable agent. She was able to guide us through the process of selling our acreage in a very short time frame. She was a pleasure to work with and was easily accessible when we needed her guidance.” ~ Maureen DeBackere
“Alesha and I contacted Lynne about a house that we wanted to view in Rivers, MB. Coming from Brandon and having very different work schedules meant that Lynne had to be very flexible with the hours that she could meet us in. Not only was Lynne flexible with her hours but she worked around our schedule to make sure that we could purchase a house that was idea for the both of us. Thanks again Lynne for everything that you have done and I would recommend you to anyone that asked!” ~ Dennis
“Right off the hop I knew that Lynne would be a great agent for us. Her no nonsense, tell it like it is attitude is what you need for a successful sale. The proof is in the pudding. Under her advisement we completed what she suggested and had our house on the market 3 weeks until it was sold. Was a great experience and a pleasure dealing with Lynne. Highly recommend her.” ~ Jan-Ole Hellebakken
“Lynne was unbelievably patient with us as first time home buyers. We took our time in finding our perfect house and Lynne was a critical part in making this happen. Lynne was a wealth of information during each step of the purchase process. She worked hard to get us our ideal purchase price. Lynne was attentive to all our questions and was always available if needed. We really appreciated having Lynne by our side during this exciting time. Thank you Lynne!” ~ Amanda Winder
“Lynne was a delight to work with. I was impressed with her knowledge of construction, the local area and the legal aspects of real estate. She was prompt and caring. The best real estate agent I have ever done business with. Thanks Lynne!” ~ Dave Harder
“Lynne was very professional and worked hard to find a buyer for our home. She gave tips to improve the sale, but also worked with what you had. What we admired about her was that she was always on time for appointments and always let us know how the showings went, with either a follow-up phone call or email. Lynne is committed to helping people sell their property while always having the clients best wishes in mind. We would definitely use Lynne’s services again! Thanks Lynne! ~ Mark & Bonnie Jordan
“We had Lynne as our buying and selling real estate agent and she helped us out so much. She was a pleasant person to help us through our transactions. We highly recommend Lynne for all your buying and selling needs. She helped us with so many things we didn’t know.” ~ Dale Smith
“Lynne’s name came up from a few different sources when I was looking to list a property in a small Westman town. After reading a few of the testimonials on her website, I felt that she was the best choice for the job. She did her homework before listing and came prepared at our first meeting with market comparisons, recent sales in the area, etc. Her listing description of the property was very upbeat and positive. She kept me informed during the whole process and her monthly updates always included information as to any recent sales in the area and other new comparable listings. The property was vacant during the time of the listing, but she still made sure I was aware when there was a viewing and always followed up with feedback from potential buyers. Lynne arranged to meet me at the property the day before closing to do a final walk through, meter readings, etc. and I felt she went out of her way to ensure a smooth closing. I would have no hesitation to recommend Lynne to anyone selling their property.” ~Donna Johnston
“Finding our first home, a home that has met our families needs and budget, was an exciting process with Lynne. She listened to our needs and worked with us toward our goal. She answered our confused and excited calls and texts at all times of the day. Lynne made the process a lot less stressful by, openly informing us about the positive and negative aspects of each house and it’s history. Lynne was flexible as our idea of the home we wanted changed. She understood what our family needed and what our budget can afford . We are thankful for her insight and guidance.” ~ Anthony & Rute
“Lynne was great! She kept us up to date with regular updates on the market – what was selling/listed and comparable. She did a great job of marketing the sale, kept it current, updated pictures with the seasons. Did regular open houses. Brought us a few offers and we found one that was right for us. She never gave up, her effort was consistent! We trusted Lynne with this sale and would use her again anytime. She came highly recommended by Sue Harrison. Thank you Lynne.” ~ Michelle
“Our experience with Sutton-Harrison Realty and our agent, Lynne Miller, far exceeded our expectations. Lynne worked closely with us in finding our new home. She worked tirelessly around my busy schedule working out of province and was there with us every step of the way and was eager to answer all our questions. We are beyond happy with the service we got and how professional and helpful Lynne was. We look forward to doing business again.” ~ Greg & Becky
We have been using Lynne as our real estate agent for 3 years. Within this time we have bought 2 houses and sold 1. Lynne has been nothing but exceptional with helping us with these endeavors.

We highly recommend Lynne for anyone who is looking to buy and/or sell their home. ~ Clinton & Ashley Schroeder
We had a great pleasure to work with Lynne. Her knowledge and experience helped us to find a house of our dreams. She never left us alone when we needed to resolve any purchasing issues and gave us wise advice concerning housing in Brandon and small town areas. We were happy to work with Lynne and will recommend her services to our friends and neighbours. ~ Anaastasia & Sergei Petzov
It was a pleasure and a relief to have Lynne Miller as my agent. She treated me like I was family and I have the utmost trust in her. My home was in the country and Lynne always kept my listing current on the market and showed it several times. She even went above and beyond, she would always check my home after a showing to make sure that lights were turned off and my place was locked and secure. Lynne looked after my best interests. Her honesty was appreciated. She helped me sell my home and she helped me find my new home. She was very honest with her opinion of the homes we looked at. She knew my budget and Lynne helped me find exactly what I needed. I didn’t have to worry about any paperwork at all. Lynne took care of it all. She emailed me places that fit what I was looking for and she made the advertisement of my home very sellable too. All in all, I would recommend Lynne as your REALTOR® – for buying and/or selling – your next home! ~ Rick Braun
Lynne Miller was amazing. She was always on top of things, never wasted any time and always made us feel like we were important to her.

We were very pleased with Lynne as we went through the process of buying our first home! She was very knowledgeable with the homes we were shown.

We would definitely recommend Lynne to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home! ~ Louise & Jeremy Roberts
It was very easy for us to choose Lynne ar our realtor. She has an exceptionally good reputation in our area and is highly visible. She most certainly didn’t disappoint. We obtained the services of a property appraiser only to find the Lynne’s appraisal was very similar. We learned that she is knowledgeable in all aspects of her business. Our property, listed with Lynne, was small compared to many transactions she is involved with. Even so we received excellent service, timely communications and she was always friendly, courteous and prompt. Both Gary and I would highly recommend Lynne to anyone choosing a realtor. In her quiet, unassuming manner she will work extremely hard for you. ~Gary & Vonda
Lynne Miller was very professional and enthusiastic. We really appreciated all the hard work, numerous open houses and dedication to detail she provided to ensure our house would sell in a timely manner. Our experience was nothing but positive and I would highly recommend her to anyone. ~Lauren & Rene
We highly recommend Lynne Miller if buying or selling a house. She is very knowledgeable and energetic agent and her dedication is second to none. Lynne worked tirelessly holding open houses for us and was able to find a buyer for our rural home very quickly. With her hard work and positive outlook, she provided us with an enjoyable experience during a very stressful time. Thank you Lynne, for your dedication and professionalism. ~Valerie & Grant
My experience buying a house with Lynne was incredible. She was very thorough on walk-throughs, and quick to point out anything of concern. I looked at about 15-20 houses with Lynne. She was always punctual and never rushed me through any of them. I would highly recommend Lynne to anyone wanting to have a great buying/selling experience. ~Ryan
I really appreciated the time and effort Lynne put into helping me sell my existing home and find our new home that was just right for my family. She did multiple open houses and was always quick to let me know of new listings that had come out. the fact that Lynne kept in continual contact with me and put in so much effort to help the whole process go so smoothly is very much appreciated! ~Kori
Lynne was extremely knowledgeable and I found her to be a valuable asset in both purchasing and selling. Her advice was accurate and prompt, she was energetic and worked very had to make sure that all of our needs were met. She was available at every step of the way and I can’t imagine the negotiating process without her there. I will use Lynne’s services again and have recommended her to many of my friends and family. Thanks for everything! ~Marsha
Lynne was very professional. After looking at A LOT of acreages, we were able to find the perfect fit. Always eager and on time. Lynne seemed to enjoy looking at the properties as much as we did. What we appreciated the most was that she did not try to push a sale on us, she let the property sell itself. She also made selling out house in Brandon a lot less troublesome. We would highly recommend Lynne. ~Rob & Val
Above & beyond any agent I have met. Fast & hard working! My overall experience with Lynne was amazing. I highly recommend! ~Cody
Lynne was very eager to help us, as we were in a time crunch to find a house. She went above and beyond for us, as we were out of town in the middle of the offer and financing on our new place. She kept the bank moving for us, and kept us in touch of what was happening at all times. All we can say, is if we had to do it over again, Lynne would be the first person we would call. ~The Kitson Family
As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and was unsure about exactly what I was looking for. Lynne took the time to talk with me and got to know me, before showing me a number of houses. She was patient, supportive and knowledgeable, and will be the first person I call if i decide to move again! ~ Stephanie Colli
As a first time home buyer, Lynne provided us with the knowledge and expertise in order to find us the perfect home. Lynne has extreme patience and listened to all our needs. She was readily available whenever we needed and was willing to show us as many homes as we wanted. Lynne was a great agent to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home. We highly enjoyed our house looking search with Lynne. ~Ashley Potvin
Lynne was the perfect person to help us face the challenge of transitioning from our rural life to a faster-paced city market. When the perfect suburban property came up before we were fully ready, she was an invaluable advisor in quick decision making. Lynne successfully sold our rural acreage in pace with the unexpected suddenness of our moving plans. Bringing her passion for rural development to her realty work, she was a wonderful resource for connecting our country acreage with home buyers who can appreciate its unique qualities and advantages. We interviewed a number of salespeople eager to tell us what to think, but Lynne displayed a skill for listening, asking questions, and helping us to make up our own minds. We feel truly happy to own both our new home and some of the biggest decisions of our lives. ~ Dyck’s
Lynne was awesome. We love the fact that she is still here if we need her. She went way beyond my expectations finding us our first house. You can bet I’ll be doing business with you, and as well will always refer you to anyone we know.
For us who had never had any experience dealing in real estate, it was a pleasure having someone like Lynne to work with. She is very polite, knowledgeable and professional. She answered our questions and put us at ease. We would definitely recommend Lynne in any real estate dealing and use her again. Thank you Lynne for a stress-free experience. ~Henry & Phyllis Winder
Lynne provided a thorough market analysis and took the time to explain all aspects. She also outlined her role as an agent so we knew what we could expect along the way. I would describe Lynne as professional, well-organized, efficient, pleasant and readily available. We had an excellent and smooth experience and would definitely recommend Lynne. ~Arlette Knelsen
I was extremely pleased with Lynne as my Realtor! I found her to be very knowledgeable on every level of the properties we looked at, and answered all questions I had. Her honesty and integrity sets a whole new standard for Realtors everywhere, making her a contender that would be extremely difficult to beat. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that asks, and will be using her in the future for any real estate purchases or sales I may consider. Thanks Lynne! ~ Katherine Wall
We would recommend Lynne to anyone who is in need of a Realtor. She is truly amazing. Lynne went above and beyond for us. She helped us in any way that she could. It was a very stressful time for us and she managed to make everything work out. We appreciate everything she did to help us sell and buy a new home. ~Michelle & Cody Menzies
We made a spur of the moment decision to look at buying a house, not really knowing anything about buying or the ins and outs. I contracted Lynne because she was the agent for a seller and I wanted to see the house. Within minutes she called me back, setup a time and got the ball rolling. She also offered to be our agent. As a first time home buyer I didn’t know what questions to ask let alone know what I needed to know. She was fantastic and provided assistance at every step and gave honest, professional advice. We always felt like we were in good hands. She was able to meet us all over the countryside to view houses in the evenings and on weekends until we found the perfect fit. I would and have recommended Lynne to my friends and co-workers. Coincidentally a friend said he was selling his house and I said “You need to use Lynne” and he laughed and said he already was. She already has a fantastic reputation in the real estate world! When I decide to sell my home I will definitely be using her again. She made it feel like a personal experience in a professional way. We love out home and we couldn’t have done it without her! Thanks Lynne, you have customers for life! ~Erin
Working with Lynne was a pleasant experience. She is very thorough and professional. Bottom line, she got out property sold in under two weeks for very close to asking price while other similar properties remained unsold. Can’t go wrong with Lynne. Awesome Job! ~Sherry & Dale
The decision to sell our home was difficult for us. Lynne helped us not only to sell the house, but emotionally. She was able to calm our fears and reassure us that it was the right thing to do under our circumstances. Lynne helped up find the perfect home to move to. Our home quickly and we moved to our new home. Lynne was with us all the way through both transactions. We would have Lynne sell our current home if the need arises. ~Donna Moroz
We had Lynne as our buying and selling real estate agent and she help us out so much. She was a pleasant person to help us out through our transaction. We highly recommend Lynne for all your buying and selling needs. She helped us out with so much stuff we didn’t know. ~ Dale Smith
Lynne was very easy and flexible to work with during the marketing, negotiating and selling of our rental property in Rivers. She negotiated well and ensured we were happy with the offer made on our property. Lynne was so particular regarding the details of the contract and kept us well informed. She did a lot of extra ‘leg work’ to ensure the deal ‘stayed alive’ which resulted in a successful sale. We would highly recommend Lynne to prospective buyers and sellers as a Realtor and we would certainly engage her services in the future. Thank you for all your hard work! ~Ann & Colin Hunter
I had owned my house for 22 years, so the selling market to me was scary. I am that person who needs to know how things are going with the sale of my house also. Lynne Miller put all of my worries/anxiety to rest. Each month she provided me with a report stating how many times my house had been viewed on any site it was advertised on, how many houses in its price range had sold that month, and how many times it was viewed in person. She was fabulous at keeping me in the loop! Being that my house would only appeal to a very specific market based on location and price, I fully expected it to take close to a year to sell, but Lynne worked hard with one of her co-workers and had it sold in less than 2 months! I was trilled! She worked hard for me and I would (and do) recommend her to everyone! Thanks Lynne! ~Rachel Gillingham
I was very pleased with the professional and caring service I received while selling my mobile home. Thank you! ~Madeline Bishop
Lynne Miller was a very good realtor. As our blog in Rivers, MB was owned by Katie Kroegen in Rivers and myself in Alberta it became necessary for her to keep in touch with both of us. She was both professional and friendly and kept in touch with both clients. We were completely satisfied with all her efforts and her success. Thank you Lynne. ~ Joanne Skinner-Busenius
Lynne was recommended to us by an old co-worker and I wish we would have found her when we first put our house on the market. She told us how it was, she didn’t beat around the bush or make promises and not deliver, we appreciate that! Lynne is very good at what she does and like her brother-in-law says she can sell the unsellable! ~ Nadine Keach
Really appreciated Lynne’s expertise in recommendations to prepare our home for sale. I would certainly have Lynne represent me in any future property transactions. Truly a professionals professional. ~ Ken Hyndman
I am thankful for Sutton Harrison Realty for selling the property on 2nd Avenue in Rivers, Manitoba. I appreciate the fact that my agent Lynne Miller always kept me informed and took the time to phone me when she had a client that was interested. She was always thinking positive never negative. You could definitely depend on her, thank you! ~ Katie Kroeger
We really appreciated the service we got from Lynne. She was very patient with us in our search for a place to buy. Also very happy with the thorough, knowledgeable walkthroughs she gave us. Through the whole process the service was great! Thanks Lynne! ~ Randall & Melissa Wiebe
My First thought when i was ready to start looking for my own home was that I knew I had to call Lynne. Not only because she is a horsey friend, but because I knew she would look out for my best interests. What I didn’t expect was how easy she would make the whole process for me. I had never bought a house on my own, and this was only my second time buying. Even with many hurdles, Lynne made made the process seem like a walk in the park. I am grateful for her help and support and appreciate her after sale support. ~Carol Lowery
I was aware that Lynne was familiar with the area and that she knew of people looking for properties. She is thorough, able to use social media to get your property more exposure and has a positive outlook. She returns calls promptly and is more than willing to address any issues that may arise. Lynne is realistic about the marketplace and is prepared to work with you. I was very happy with her service as a realtor and I am pleased to recommend her. ~Lynn Forbes
