Hensal serves on the Greater Fairfield County Consolidated Multiple Listing Service Board of Directors and is its Treasurer. She is also proud to be on the Board of Directors for Ann’s Place, a compassionate nonprofit organization that provides support and resources for individuals and families facing cancer, all at no charge.
Hensal has additionally been recognized with numerous honors over the years, including Realtor of the Year and Brookfield’s Woman of the Year. She and her company received several awards for being one of the top performers in the country while Hensal Realty was a part of the Better Homes and Gardens franchise as well as the GMAC franchise. Hensal has earned numerous real estate designations including Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB) and Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).
With a degree in education from Purdue University and previous experience as a teacher, Hensal has trained and guided numerous agents throughout her career to top producer status, and in some cases into becoming owners of their own companies. Now she says she looks forward to bringing her skills and experience to William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
“I pride myself on reputation, and believe that a firm’s standing in this regard is what matters most in this industry. I am thrilled that Hensal Realty has earned such a high reputation for service, and know that this core trait shared by William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty makes for an excellent fit between our companies and agents,” said Hensal. “We are all very excited to be able to offer our clients access to a wide array of benefits now, including an incredible selection of sophisticated marketing tools, global exposure and a great relocation department that reaches a national and international clientele.”
