Biography: Leslie Lundin – Entrepreneur, Mom, Audiophile.

If you haven’t met the delightful host of our first Smackdown, make sure you don’t miss the next one! There’s a lot more to her than can be expressed in these pixels, but here’s a humble CV directly from the desk of our First Chair of Events, Leslie Lundin:

I was born in Chicago and raised in Wisconsin: the daughter of an audiophile, whose speakers (of course) I blew out in high school at a party I had while my parents were out of the country.  We always had music playing in the house and I still have some of the old albums from my youth.  Could never let them go.  Being in Wisconsin, we used to see a lot of live blue grass.  My dad had a wonderful operatic voice and used to serenade my mother with “I’ll take you home again Kathleen”.   She’s Irish. We had instruments hanging on the walls as part of our fine art collection.  My parents force fed all of us live Chicago Symphony Orchestra performances at a young age, believing that it was a necessary part of life.

I always had a decent system, better than pretty much everyone I met and a very large music collection.  I used to have a lot of parties in high school and college and after graduating (pretty much always) so needed a big system, a house with a lot of open space and good mix tapes.  I bought/sold and renovated houses during college so had pretty nice digs.

I have three teenage sons who are also musicians and performers. Their father was in a band and also plays several instruments.   He has his living room set up for jam sessions (drum set, mic’s, etc.).  I’m in the process of building a media room for pre-recorded media so I can free up the living room for live music playing as well.  Music is a really important part of my life and always has been.

Professionally, I develop and re-develop commercial real estate.  Been in CRE since I graduated from UW-Madison in 1990.  I founded LBG Real Estate Companies, LLC with two partners, right now primarily focused on value add shopping centers in the Western US.  See for more.

Thank you, Leslie. We’re honored that you want to hang out with us and do audio stuff.
