For Brett Billings, home is not just where the heart is. It is the place where we make precious memories with the people (and pets) we love. From first birthday parties to graduations and engagement celebrations, summer backyard barbeques, and impromptu dancing in the kitchen... our homes are the cherished spaces where relationships grow, families thrive and friendships blossom.
The importance of feeling belonging and contentment at home has been cast in a new light during the global pandemic of the recent year. Brett deeply empathizes with the unique dynamic of running a growing real estate business in the same space as a kindergarten math class, as much as how important it is to have a backyard that doubles as both a yoga retreat and science classroom. As a mother, wife, and realtor, Brett will dedicate herself to finding the ideal home for you or your family in this ever-changing world.
As a team member for Compass, Brett strives to build authentic connections with her clients, learning what is important to them in order to find the home and neighborhood that are perfect for them. To Brett, the relationship you build with your agent should be one of absolute trust, knowing that she has your back and your best interests at heart always. A commensurate professional who balances authenticity and levity with professionalism and respect, Brett’s door is always open, her phone is always on and Brett can’t wait to welcome you into her extended family of clients who inevitably become lifelong friends.
It has long been Brett’s dream to help people find “home” in this place she holds near and dear to her heart. As a fifth-generation Los Angeles native, Brett has always been enamored with the history, culture, architecture, and natural beauty of the Southern California area. Brett’s roots in the South Bay run deep, first established by her great-grandparents who owned a stationery shop in Downtown Manhattan Beach. Brett attended Wilson high school in Long Beach, a city that she Brett Billings Bio Billings Beach Homes and Associates with Compass loves for its vibrant and always-evolving social and dining scene. She also has the most special place in her heart for Santa Barbara, where she was a scholarship athlete and member of the UCSB women’s volleyball team from 2004-2008.
Before joining the Compass team, Brett spent years living overseas with her husband Brook (formerly a professional volleyball player and now also an agent with the Compass team), their two small children, and Hercules (a pug) in Turkey, Greece, France, Qatar, and Puerto Rico. Traveling with her young family is an experience she wouldn’t trade for the world, but Brett always dreamed of coming back to the South Bay to live near her grandparents in Palos Verdes, countless friends and family members in the Beach Cities, and―of course―one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Manhattan Beach. There is rarely a weekend where you can’t find the Billings kids at the beach where Ford is an avid young fisherman and surfer, and Liv thrives on making new friends and living like a mermaid.
Brett can’t wait to meet you, work with you, and help you find that just- the right home where the dreams you have can settle in, take root and grow.
