About Mary Lynne Gibbs:
Mary Lynne is an Associated Broker known for her outstanding client service and unmatched area expertise. A longtime resident of Lakeway, Texas, Mary Lynne is the leader of The Gibbs Team with Keller Williams Realty, where she specializes in lakefront and luxury residential property in and around Austin. Since beginning her career in real estate in 2002, Mary Lynne’s reputation has seen a meteoric rise, today making her a top real estate professional in the area.
Though now real estate seems like a perfect fit, Mary Lynne had an extensive and diverse personal and professional life previously to becoming a Realtor. She was raised in an Air Force family and grew up traveling. After attending Texas State University, Mary Lynne spent several years as a pharmacy technician before getting married and becoming a flight attendant, managing to see nearly every state in the country, as well as living in Puerto Rico for some time.
It was not until Mary Lynne remarried and needed a change that she decided to try her hand at real estate. With her diverse background and track record of adapting quickly to new challenges, it came as no surprise that Mary Lynne was wildly successful, winning not just Rookie of the Year but also Keller Williams’ Career Launch Award her very first year in the industry.
She notes: I am an avid San Antonio Spurs fan and season ticket holder, and that Tim Duncan quote really sums up my attitude toward real estate: ‘Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.’ Once I got the bug, I didn’t stop—I took opportunities to strategically increase my business. Then I obtained my broker’s license, and I was able to train a lot of new staff and really grow the office I was leading. Now, I’m thrilled to be working with buyers and sellers. This year our team has done a little over $28 million.
With extensive leadership skills under her belt as well as unparalleled knowledge of the Austin area, Mary Lynne was well equipped for her return to the world of sales. She has also amassed a wealth of advanced certifications, and today is an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™ (CLHMS), and an e-PRO®. These specific certifications have contributed to Mary Lynne’s reputation as a luxury residential Realtor clients can trust, though she also works with small Austin bungalows, ranch properties, and houses in every price range.
Today, a finalist for the Platinum Top 50 award for 2017, she and her team have been extensively recognized for their unparalleled client service and industry acumen. They have won Keller Williams’ Top Listing Units Sold and Top Dollar Volume, as well as Platinum Medals.
As a widely regarded leader—both in the office and in her overall industry—Mary Lynne is a sought-after contributor to local and national professional organizations. She currently serves as the Director of the Central Texas region of the Council of Residential Specialists. She is also a member of the Texas Association of REALTORS® (TAR) and sits on the TAR Professional Standards Committee. She has been a speaker and panelist on subjects including contracts, risk management, buyer and seller mastery, and more. Additionally, Mary Lynne is a Texas Real Estate Commission Certified Instructor and has taught continuing education courses such as Broker Responsibility and Legal Update I & II.
This position of prominence allows Mary Lynne to keep a close eye on trends and changes in her local real estate market, especially the potential for growth in her home area of Austin.
She notes: Potentially, the market in Austin is very strong, given both the job market and the new builds that are taking place. Certainly it leans towards being a seller’s market in just about every aspect, depending on the price point. Of course, you have to price homes and market properties correctly.
When she isn’t working, Mary Lynne enjoys her beautiful hometown—located in the Lake Travis Area near Austin, Lakeway is the perfect place to enjoy water skiing and other outdoor activities. Mary Lynne also loves to travel and is close with her family, including her three children, four grandchildren, and mother.

About The San Antonio Spurs
The Mary Lynne Gibbs Team is ready to help you with all of your real estate needs – even if your favorite basketball team is not the 5-Time World Championship San Antonio Spurs conveniently playing 42 home games a year only 92 miles from their Keller Williams office in Lakeway, Texas 🙂
In March 2016, the world-famous NBA Commentator Craig Sager (pictured below on left) noticed that the iconic (and unofficial) “San Antonio Spurs Santa” was missing from under the basket. Upon further investigation, Craig found Marty Gibbs with a closely-shaven beard in the same season ticket seat normally occupied by “Santa”. In a live interview for the NBA on TNT program, Craig interviewed Marty and urged him grow the beard back. In honor of Craig Sager, Marty brought the full beard back for the 2017-2018 NBA season!
