Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty announces the promotion of Michael Bianchi to Vice President/General Manager in the company’s Orange County market.
“Michael’s commitment to our agents and desire to see our company and industry evolve makes him a tremendous asset to us in his new role as VP/General Manager, Orange County,” says Brian Arrington, CEO, Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty. “We are excited that all our agents in Orange County will now have the opportunity to benefit from his leadership and guidance.”
Bianchi comes from a family with a long history in real estate and has a reputation as a specialist in making deals within the luxury real estate market, helping to broker over 12,000 transactions in his two decades in real estate management. In his most recent role as Office Manager for Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s Laguna Beach, Monarch Beach, and San Clemente offices, Bianchi tripled the sales volume in South Orange County in under three years.
“Michael is a strong advocate of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand. He is well-versed in technology, marketing, and analyzing the numbers the matter to help agents navigate the business of selling real estate,” adds Wendy Purvey, Chief Strategy Officer, Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.
In 2018, Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty purchased the Sotheby’s International Realty affiliation in Orange County and the Coachella Valley. Since then, through recruiting and retaining the most exceptional agents, this trade area has grown year over year and the company’s market share has increased by nearly 50%. As part of the leadership team, Bianchi will assist with strategic initiatives to continue to increase the company’s market share in Orange County and ensure agents have access to every resource available to grow their business and support their clients.
“I have spent virtually my entire career supporting talented real estate professionals using modern techniques and traditional values,” says Bianchi. “This opportunity provides me with a platform to continue that work on a broad scale across Orange County, supporting our offices from Huntington Beach to San Clemente. It’s an exciting time in our industry, and I look forward to strengthening our brand in the Southern California market.”
