When the longtime CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago stepped down in 2019, the firm chose to pivot to a new leadership team model that’s unconventional for real estate brokerages. Under the new three-person executive team, Diane Glass, chief operating officer (COO), Mark Pasquesi, president of Brokerage, and Joe Stacy, senior vice president and general sales manager, jointly lead the firm.

“A strategic executive team instead of a traditional CEO role is new in residential real estate,” says Glass, adding that the leadership model is common among tech and fast-moving companies. “It’s based on the really simple idea that more people, more ideas, and more expertise create an agile and connected environment.”
