As the voice of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty, Wendy Purvey repositioned the company’s mission to support an inclusive culture among its employees and provide its agents with every opportunity to increase their business in a company anchored by the strategic pillars of service, respect and value. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, she immediately took control of communications to ensure her employees and agents retained a connection and were informed of changes in the industry, company and community. Purvey implemented the necessary systems for a successful remote work environment. Over the past 12 months, Purvey restructured the company’s leadership and management team not only to provide the greatest benefit to its employees and agents but also to ensure the company is operating on a sound and intelligent business model which can be sustained for future growth in the dynamic real estate industry. By implementing new technologies, tools and partnerships, she not only provided agents with more value but also brought expenses down across the board. During her time as chief operating officer, she has developed strategic and mutually beneficial business partnerships, created a new marketing department and relocation/referral department, increased company profitability, and implemented new lead generation and networking efforts to help agents increase their sales productivity, among many other accomplishments.
