Lindsey was born and raised in York Pennsylvania, so she’s had her fill of sleet and snow. Her father was a decorated golfer in the state, which sparked her interested in the environmental sciences from a young age. After graduating from West Virginia University in 2002 with a degree in Agronomy/Turfgrass Management, she was determined to start a new life close to sand and sun and escape the harsh winters. With a golf course background and no job in sight, she packed her car full of her belongings, put her car on the auto train, and headed south to the Sunshine State to pursue her dreams. She started a job bar-tending in Hyde Park Village and used that as an avenue to network with other local professionals. Her first full time position was selling landscape materials to residential and commercial developers across the state of FL while the real estate market was booming in 2004-2006. With the travel necessary for that position and pregnant with her first child, Lindsey began selling real estate just before the housing market crisis of 2007. Not only did she survive one of the most challenging markets, but her business soured to new levels. In order to maintain the work-life-balance she continues to strive for on a daily basis, being married and raising 2 little ladies, she began The Fowkes Group in 2012, bringing together a collection of skilled real estate professionals to better serve the city she loves.

Today, The Fowkes Group continues to grow and flourish and has been recognized year after year as one of the top producing Real Estate Teams across the Tampa Bay Area and throughout the nation. This special group is not only active with their clients, but in the community as well, with major volunteer and donation ties to Metropolitan Ministries of Tampa Bay. To Lindsey, this business is not only about personal and professional relationships, it’s about passion and community.

In 2021, Lindsey embarked on the next step on her professional journey, she began her own RE/MAX franchise servicing the Tampa Bay area, RE/MAX Collective, in order to scale her business and have a greater ability to collaborate with other top agents and change the face of real estate. “It’s simply time! After almost 14 years in the business, it’s time to not only continue toward mastery for myself and my amazing clients, but to be able to assist in the collective success of talented agents throughout our community.”

“RE/MAX Collective gives opportunity and space for collaboration among other like minded agents, innovation through marketing tactics and progressive ideas, empowerment through accountability and teamwork, gratitude for this beautiful life we live and for the opportunity to do what we’re passionate about, selling real estate and exceeding our clients expectations time and time again in Tampa Bay! Together, we’re ready to elevate and take Tampa Bay real estate to the next level. We’re ready to help homeowners flourish and navigate through the Bay market and provide our buyers and sellers the presence, digital know how, and profits they deserve!”

Lindsey and her husband Tony have two young daughters, Addison and Delaney, and a boxer baby named Mila, who keep them busy with sports and social activities, but are also community advocates and participate in many charitable organizations. In her time away from real estate, Lindsey, enjoys relaxing by the beach, boating on the turquois blue Florida retreats, and of course for anyone that knows her, fine wine.

Why Real Estate?

Besides my passion for people, I have a passion to be creative, overcome challenges and be challenged, and make people’s day! This business allows me the opportunity to do this day in and day out. Every day is truly unique!
