Gavin Payne Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate | Haven Properties owner/broker

Broker/owner Gavin Payne acquired San Luis Obispo Realty a year after acquiring Morro Bay Realty, another acquisition executed with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate.

By working collaboratively with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, Payne has demonstrated that strategic acquisitions can be executed with efficiency. The broker’s and brand’s shared focus of market share growth, cost savings and cultural alignment helps ensure a successful transaction.

Better Homes and Gardens work with their brokers/owners on a regular basis to identify and structure unique and smart growth opportunities. This latest milestone will enable Payne to utilize the former San Luis Obispo Realty office as the combined entity’s new headquarters, providing a modernized workspace and ample room to accommodate the company’s ongoing expansion.

This realignment, combined with an increased market presence, enhances the brokerage’s ability to provide the luxury concierge service that has been integral to its success.

By joining the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Network, San Luis Obispo Realty’s agents will benefit from the broad suite of resources, technology and marketing materials to fuel their businesses. The San Luis Obispo Realty leadership team will remain with the company as agents and broker associates.
