Biographical Note

Lynnsy Logue was born in 1939 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania to Paul and Sue Greene Logue. She moved with her family to Charlotte, NC in 1955 and graduated from Myers Park High School and subsequently went on to attend the NC Women's College (now UNC Greensboro.) Beginning in 1960, Logue worked for the Charlotte Observer and was the youngest person in the Advertising Department, where she served as Feature Advertising Editor for the Charlotte News and later managed the feature pages for both the Observer and the News. In 1976, she became the Promotions Manager at WCCB, where she went on to develop the well-known children's character, Sonic Man, which became quite popular and was played by Larry Sprinkle in its early years.

After working in Texas and Oklahoma for a few years, Logue returned to Charlotte, signed on to work for a real estate company in Mint Hill and earned her broker's license in 1986. At that point, she established her own business called Lynnsy Logue Real Estate and trademarked The Real Estate Lady as her nickname. Logue decided to focus on condominiums in Charlotte, an often overlooked area of real estate at the time, and trademarked Condo Can Do. She developed a database of every condominium in Charlotte and became the condominium expert for the area. Logue still lives in Charlotte, where she has been very active in the LGBT community and women's issues over the years, and continues to practice real estate.
