About Our Team

Bernard Gibbons & Michelle HensleyBernard and his daughter, Michelle Hensley, pictured left, are experienced Realtors with well over 40 years combined experience of helping home buyers and sellers in the East Bay. They have sold hundreds of homes in our area and have been recognized as among the top 10% of Bay Area agents for many years. Much of their business comes as a result of past client referrals.

Originally from England, we have lived in the East Bay for many years. Michelle moved here following many years as a nurse in the Royal Air Force, while Bernard and his wife, Sylvia, Michelle’s mom, followed a number of years later, when Bernard was offered the opportunity to take up a leadership position in an international IT consulting firm.

The sale and purchase of Real Estate in California is now such that it is virtually impossible for a sole practitioner to provide the advice, support and service needed to ensure buyers and sellers have a minimum amount of stress and that transactions close on time.

We work equally with buyers and sellers of homes in the East Bay and our philosophy is based on the concept of putting our clients’ interests above our own. If you decide that you would like us to help you in finding a new home or in selling an existing one, we will do everything in our power to help you. You can contact us by email at bernard@bernardgibbons.com or michelle@bernardgibbons.com or phone or text Bernard at (925) 997-1585.
