Jennifer Arsenault MANAGING BROKER & CEO
Jennifer Arsenault is the Founder and Managing Broker of Flotilla and has been in the Oklahoma City Real Estate Industry since 1998, where she began as a leasing agent one summer when not in school. By the end of summer, she was offered a promotion that included a free 1-bedroom apartment with pink carpet. Like most 19-year-olds, moving out of her childhood home seemed like a dream come true!
By age 24, Jennifer was working with a well-reputed management company as its sales manager. She directed all advertising, marketing, and promotions for 23 apartment communities (5,104 units); monitored all sales reports; conducted market surveys; compiled occupancy statistics and closing ratios for 60+ staff members; assisted in the acquisition of new properties from due diligence to new vendor set up; supported in the development of office and property remodel plans and oversaw staffing and training. She later worked with over 300 investors who purchased a large portfolio of new construction to be held and managed in Oklahoma City. After 10 years, she stepped out of her final roles in property management to use her real estate license in retail residential by joining Keller Williams Realty Elite in early 2007 as a sales associate.

They moved to Yukon in 2006 where he started his career in real estate with the Hart Home Selling Team. Krystal at that time had worked 3.5 years in the banking industry where she developed her work ethic, ability to create great relationships with customers, and lead-by-example management style.
In 2011, she decided to start fresh and began working as Executive Assistant to the President at an equipment manufacturer in north Oklahoma City for 10 years. Krystal was a key liaison between the President and associates at a national and international level. She learned a lot about business practices in general during her employment from operations, purchasing, accounting, HR, production, inventory management, sales, and engineering processes.
Currently, Krystal and her husband have multiple rental properties and continue to build their portfolio. They are diehard Thunder fans and have had season tickets since the beginning.
