Lynn Scarbo

Senior Vice President | Boston

As head of Mortgage Servicing for the Boston Capital Markets team, I handle all aspects of loan servicing for our clients, which includes collections, borrower requests, property inspections, and fiscal year-end analysis.  What I enjoy most about my role is that no two days are alike. My position allows me the opportunity to development relationships with lenders, borrowers, analysts, property managers and accountants to name a few. As the saying goes, “the devil is in the details”, and I enjoy digging in to provide thorough reporting.

Prior to joining the Capital Markets team in 2006, I was a property manager for Meredith & Grew (now Colliers International) with a 22-year career in the industry.  My experience as a property manager segued nicely into my current role as a loan servicer since I possessed all of the fundamental skills to perform my new role.

While I like the changing New England seasons, my favorite season of the year is summer.  If I am not at the office, you can find me at the beach, swimming, kayaking and relaxing.  I have a fondness for Welfleet and the Jersey Shore, particularly Long Beach Island where the water is warm, and the waves are big.  LBI is my go-to destination for friends and family vacations.
