If you ever work with top real estate agent in California Brittany Hensley, chances are you’ll gain a friend for life. “The relationships I have don’t end when the transaction ends and a client buys or sells a home. In my mind, they actually begin when a deal closes,” she says.
As a top agent with Navigators Real Estate in San Luis Obispo County, Brittany specializes in selling luxury real estate, beach homes and vineyard properties in Templeton, Paso Robles and Cambria. She brings a unique combination of marketing and sales expertise, deep knowledge of the area and exceptional customer service to her work. That winning formula resulted in $19,000,000 in sales last year–and by all indications, she’s just getting started.
After college, Brittany worked at the Fresno Bee, then spent 12 years at the Tribune with McClatchy Publishing as a Graphic Designer and Account Executive. She later moved into a sales role working with the real estate community creating print, direct mail and digital ad campaigns, then further honed her skills at two of the area’s largest ad agencies.
“Having that background in graphic design, marketing and sales has been a huge asset that really allowed me to hit the ground running after I got my license,” she explains. As she was working and earning a reputation for her sales and marketing savvy, Brittany was also developing strong connections with many real estate professionals.
One of those key longstanding relationships has been with Jay Chiasson, Owner of Navigators Real Estate. “Jay was one of the best clients I had while I was at the Tribune,” Brittany recalls. “I was already handling his marketing while I was studying for my real estate exam. He’s always been someone I really enjoy working with, and we see eye to eye on a lot of things, so it became the logical place to hang my hat after I became an agent.”
Buyers and sellers alike appreciate the fact that, as a lifelong resident, Brittany knows every corner of San Luis Obispo County intimately. She was raised in Paso Robles & Cayucos, and her family has owned a business in Morro Bay for over 35 years. They also own several investment properties and VRBOs throughout the area.
Brittany’s passion and enthusiasm for the area is contagious. “We have incredible farmer’s markets, live entertainment, hundreds of wineries, gorgeous beaches, and miles of beautiful open space for outdoor recreation,” she remarks. “There’s really something for everyone.”
When she’s not working, Brittany can be found giving back to the community and the industry, serving in leadership positions at several nonprofit and real estate associations. She also enjoys any and all water activities, from kayaking to wakeboarding and surfing to just taking her dog for a walk on the beach.
Looking ahead, top real estate agent in California Brittany Hensley has big plans to grow her business. She’s training a new team member as a buyer’s agent now and has hired another as a full-time marketing assistant. But her No. 1 priority will continue to be providing excellent service to her clients while delivering results. “I feel so fortunate to have been born and raised on the Central Coast,” she says. “There’s nothing better than being able to share the amazing lifestyle that we have here with my clients and to listen to understand the lifestyle change they desire.”
