Liz Lyster

After many years in graphic design, Liz redirected her professional focus toward the more personal and interactive profession of real estate. Drawing on 20 years of experience in the business, 30 years living in Cambridge, and deep involvement in the public schools, Liz can offer you a unique perspective on the Cambridge and Somerville markets.

Liz's strengths lie in her ability to explain the real estate process with clarity and patience, her detail-oriented analysis of market value, and her comprehensive approach to understanding and respecting her clients' needs. Liz’s design background allows her to help buyers envision the potential in a home, and she uses her extensive design and copywriting skills to expertly market sellers’ homes. Liz loves meeting all kinds of people and feels honored to be a part of the intense process of buying or selling a home. She is energetic, compassionate, and straightforward, and sees her role as both a technical and emotional advisor. Liz is committed to helping you—whether you’re buying, selling, or both—find your bliss in the Greater Boston area.

Outside of work, Liz is actively involved with Temple Israel in Boston, as Chair of the Adult Education Committee and a member of the Leadership Council; studies mindfulness meditation; and escapes her wonderful family for a girls' weekend whenever she can. She grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, with stints in Geneva, Paris, and The Hague. Liz graduated from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, with a BA in Anthropology and Sociolinguistics.
