Deirdre O'Connell

Daniel Gale Sotheby's Intl. Realty

Stepping into the role of CEO this year of the nearly 100-year-old Daniel Gale Sotheby’s Intl. Realty, Deirdre O’Connell succeeded longtime leader Patricia Petersen, who led the Long Island, N.Y., firm to $3.3 billion in sales volume in 2017, with an average sales prices of $912,000—almost twice the MLS average on Long Island.

In selecting O’Connell for the role, Petersen looked to her longtime colleague, someone who was widely respected both within the organization and throughout the industry, and who would bring both a hands-on and visionary approach to the role.
