Brittney Jeanson
Keller Williams Riverside Central
About Brittney

As a seasoned real estate professional, I recognize the value and the trust my clients place in me. I strive every day to exceed their expectations and provide them outstanding customer service. I am a California native; I grew up in Orange County, moved to Norco at 13, I got married to my high school sweet heart in 1987 and moved to Riverside Ca. where I currently reside. My last profession, before children, was a registered dental assistant and then I was fortunate enough to be able to be a stay at home mom for 22 years and raise 2 amazing humans, a son and daughter that are both married and have added a daughter in law and son in law to our family. I got started in Real Estate during the CA recession in 2008. It was a horrible time for a lot of people, including my family. I had gotten my license prior in 2005. The circumstance of our difficult time as a family, started me on a mission to start helping and serving others in my Real Estate career. These experiences instilled in me, my hard work ethic, compassion for others and a strong desire to truly help people through one of their most important transactions in life, buying and selling a home. My strong faith and love for people, along with a desire to be ethical and honest and putting others interests above mine first, have helped me grow a successful and rewarding career for 11+ years, into a business I truly am passionate about. Outside of real estate, I am a grateful and proud wife and mother, who works hard and plays hard. The activities I love most are making memories and spending time with my family and my friends. I absolutely love music, and you can usually find me at a concert, in the first row rocking out, or on the dance floor! My other hobbies include, shopping, shoes, fashion, coffee, working out, painting and crafts, and watching movies; but my very favorite past time, is time spent investing in relationships with my family and friends with those I love, including the clients that become like family to me.
