Realtor mom has her kids dress up as a T-rex and unicorn for home listing

A Kentucky mother and real estate agent has gone viral for the creative and magical way she went about selling her own family’s house: with a little help from a dinosaur and a unicorn.

Lynn Keyland, from Lexington, was preparing to list her family’s home when she decided to forgo traditional photos of the house favor for something a bit more fun.

She had two of her three kids dress up in inflatable costumes of a T-Rex and a pink unicorn, and got them to pose all around the property.

Lynn recently listed the two-story, 2,117-square-foot home for $195,000, including several unexpected photos in the listing.

Clever: Lynn, pictured, said the images certainly helped to get people interested in the listing, and she had a hugely positive response to her open house

In one, her 12-year-old daughter — dressed as a pink unicorn with a rainbow tail and mane — stands in the kitchen, opening the dishwasher.

In another, she walks up the stairs, and in a third, she’s sitting in her costume on the (closed) toilet.

Other photos show her 10-year-old son hidden underneath a T-Rex costume, sitting in a recliner and mowing the lawn.

While some show the kids doing household tasks, other photos just show off the empty rooms with the creatures inside.

What’s more, Lynn decided that the T-Rex and unicorn would tell a story: the story of her and her husband selling the house.

She has also held several open houses, all of which have been a hit.

‘It was definitely the busiest open house I’ve ever had in all my time doing real estate,’ she said of the most recent one, in which she also had her dinosaur and unicorn run a lemonade stand, with proceeds going to the Salvation Army.

‘This is something near and dear to my heart as I was once one of the homeless children residing [at the Salvation Army’s Emergency Management Shelter in Lexington],’ she said on Facebook. 

And her little dino and unicorn aren’t done working yet: They’ll be at another open house on June 30.
