Lori believes in the power that real estate holds in our communities. “There is no greater joy than being able to help a family with the purchase of their home. Our homes are so much more than brick and mortar. Our memories are created there and we share our most intimate moments with the people we love there. We feel grateful that we can be a part of this process.”
Coldwell Banker Apex continues to put “family first” in the way they conduct their business. Lori continues to have a hands on approach to her business through coaching and teaching multiple times a week. In the little spare time she has, Lori loves to garden and spend time with her family.

Glynn Wingard I Sales Manager for the Plano Office I Glynn@CBApex.com
Glynn was born in Springfield, MA (the only Yankee in his family) but fortunately was raised in the south having lived in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Florida before making Texas his home in 2005. He is often referred to as a “true southern gentleman” because it is just second nature to him to hold doors open for others, to seat ladies at the dinner table and to stand up when a lady enters the room. A graduate of the University of Tennessee (the “other UT” – GO VOLS!), Glynn holds a degree in Food Tourism & Lodging. He had an extensive career in the private club field having served as General Manager for several country and city clubs. In addition, Glynn taught Hospitality Management for a number of years as an Associate Professor at Walters Sate Community College. During that time Glynn saw a need and filled a niche by starting his own business focused on grocery delivery services to the chalets and cabins in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Glynn made a career change to real estate, his true calling, when he relocated to Texas with his wife, Beverly, and their two boys. Since then he has never looked back! Glynn is an active member of The Kiwanis Club of McKinney and enjoys participating in the club’s special events that serve the residents of Collin County.
