Robin has been recognized by her peers as one of the best brokers in the Triangle’s commercial real estate industry. She brings a wealth of experience to the table — ranging from the in-depth local knowledge that comes from a lifetime of living in the Triangle Area of North Carolina to the artful negotiation and leadership skills that clients look for when selecting a broker. But what most sets Robin apart is her focus on providing exceptional service to the people she represents.
Robin is a specialist in Class A office leasing, with a focus on the medical, science and technology industries. She exclusively represents local, corporate and investment companies. The numbers tell the story of Robin’s success — she is directly responsible for transactions totaling more than $783 million and exceeding 5.8 million square feet.
Though she loves the excitement of the city, you will find Robin ultra-casual on most nights and weekends, enjoying her family and pets while playing guitar and singing, hiking, horseback riding, gardening, cutting pastures or simply stargazing on her farm in Chatham County.
Robin spent ten years as a senior leasing representative with Highwood Properties before joining Tri Properties | NAI Carolantic. Raised in the business with a strong sense of ownership and emphasis on the highest quality service, she appreciates being a part of a company that allows her to pursue her passion for entrepreneurialism, focusing her creative thinking on the success of her client partners.
Robin’s favorite projects have been those that pose the greatest challenges, and that are transformational, both in their physical make up and in the ultimate positive effect on their communities. Golden Belt Campus in Downtown Durham is one of those projects, which started as a 350,000 square foot jumble with some buildings in varying levels of decay, but today offers a high-energy, destination mixed-use and historic environment for life science and tech companies, artists and residents.

Sir Walter Raleigh was (and is) a really meaningful project to John.

Lyne has enjoyed watching the company grow during the past 19 years. She says the teamwork at Tri Properties is off the charts – the pride, work ethic, respect and integrity of the staff makes it a “feel good” place to work. A place where you create bonds with people that last a very long time.
When Tri Properties took over the management and accounting for 13 retail centers located across four states, Lyne was responsible for transitioning 22 sets of books within six months. A detailed plan –transitioning each retail center based on the size, location, ownership structure and the accounting services needed – earned the owners’ trust and enabled us to get the job done right.
