Areas of Practice
Charley Senn (Broker) has been involved in all aspects of San Luis Obispo Commercial Real Estate since 1987. This includes leasing, sales, IRS section 1031 tax deferred exchanges, sales of raw land and development of land and commercial buildings. He has represented all types of tenants and owners including large national companies, non-profits, local businesses, local developers, governmental entities.

He is a member of the prestigious Society of Office and Industrial Realtors (SIOR) and has a dual designation as both an office and Industrial expert.

The effects of the Corona 19 virus has resulted in many calls from tenants and building owners asking for assistance and advice on how to deal with the economic impacts from the virus. Charley has had vast experience from past economic cycles. At the time of this writing he is dealing with these problems on a daily basis and as always, his goal is to find the best solution for all involved.

He has the ability to understand the dynamics of a transaction and find the economics, motivations and common ground to assure a completed transaction that meets the objectives of all parties. This is well demonstrated by the fact that he has represented the ownership of several large San Luis Obispo office, industrial and retail projects for years. He has provided long term tenants and excellent occupancy for the owners and maintains excellent relationships with tenants. He understands the unique nature of the San Luis Obispo market and the always changing needs of tenants and owners.

Charley has been actively involved with the local community. He served eight years as a member of the City of San Luis Obispo Planning Commission where he was elected chairman for 2 years, served several 2 year terms as a member of the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce and after numerous years of service is a director emeritus of the Economic Vitality Commission (EVC) where he is still active.

Prior to moving to San Luis Obispo Charley was a partner at Michael Realty Company--- the largest commercial firm in Toledo Ohio. He previously practiced law as a partner in Senn and Treadwell in Seattle Washington. Charley obtained his Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from the University of Toledo College of Law and practiced law in the states of Ohio and Washington. Prior to attending law school, he received a BBA with a major in marketing.

Charley and his wife Ginny have 3 of their 4 children and 7 of 9 grandchildren living in San Luis Obispo and have the opportunity to spend time with family on a regular basis. They enjoy hiking, pickleball, competitive bridge, golf and travel.

Some of Charley’s recent transactions include:

Representation of the tenant in the lease of a 92,000 square foot facility at 125 Venture Drive in San

Luis Obispo which was one of the largest industrial lease transactions in San Luis Obispo history.

Renegotiation of 11 commercial leases as a result of the Corona 19 virus

Representation of the owner in leasing a new 36,000 square foot office building at 892 Aerovista Drive.

TESTIMONIAL: I’ve had a 25 year business relationship with Charley. He is personable, warm, ethical, and compassionate . He has a knack for seeing opportunity often hidden to others. He is skilled at creating mutually beneficial, often creative business solutions that facilitate successful transactions. -Art Segal

TESTIMONIAL: Charley Senn and I have had a 25 year relationship. It has been outstanding. He started out representing a very good tenant and was very conscientious and did all the things I wanted in leasing agent. After that, the next time I had a space come up I listed it with him. He does an excellent job. So, he has continued to represent me and eventually took over all my leasing even to tenants I had had before. His current arrangement with Mark Anderson and Derek Senn has been excellent as well. -Chuck French
