Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce that Chief Operating Officer, Wendy Purvey, has been named one of 2021’s HousingWire (HW) Women of Influence. The annual award honors 100 women shaping and propelling the mortgage, real estate, and fintech industries forward. 2021 marks the 11th year of the award and by far the most competitive to date.

“Wendy is a true leader in our industry, our company, and our community,” says Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty Owner and CEO Brian Arrington. “Her expertise, professionalism, and vision continue to set the bar for what a luxury real estate brokerage should be.”

HousingWire’s Selection Committee selects the Women of Influence based on their professional achievements within their organizations, contributions to the overall industry, community outreach, client impact, and personal success also factor into the committee’s decision.

“Another way to describe our Women of Influence honorees this year would be the women who are making an impact, which is something we saw woven into each of these amazing award winners,” Brena Nath, HW+ managing editor, said. “Congratulations to these women who are cultivating a new path forward for the housing industry and reimagining a better, more collaborative future.”

Many of this year’s winners mentor other women in the industry. Others coordinate volunteer programs for their employees or serve on advisory boards that inform the industry. All are making a huge difference in their communities. These women are instrumental in paving the way for other women to also succeed in the housing industry.

As a strategic and performance-focused executive, Purvey has years of expertise as an innovative, energetic leader in real estate marketing and business development across many brands, including franchise and company-owned firms. She has earned a reputation for delivering marketing strategies that have helped drive new business growth. As Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty’s Chief Operating Officer, Purvey oversees all marketing and operations for the firm.
