2021 HW Woman of Influence: Gretchen Pearson


Gretchen Pearson is not just a leader; she’s a broker, cancer survivor, wife and mother. Since opening its doors in 2005, Drysdale Properties has grown by leaps and bounds, thanks to Pearson’s leadership as president and CEO. When it seemed the industry came to a halt in 2020, Pearson was at the forefront declaring real estate as an essential business. Pearson successfully led the entire network of Drysdale through the pandemic year and pivoted the company so that their clients received the same excellent service they had come to expect from them. She consistently steers the ship and keeps Drysdale Properties focused on what’s important, customer satisfaction and helping people achieve the American Dream. Pearson also hosts bi-monthly webinars with the agents to keep them motivated and informed of industry insights, and is dedicated to helping the agents and staff at Drysdale Properties feel supported. She makes sure that her company is always evolving to meet the needs of clients in a constantly changing industry. Also under her leadership, at this year’s Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Sales Convention, Drysdale Properties was recognized in the Elite Circle category, which means it’s among the top tier of all Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices affiliates nationwide and abroad. A significant part of that commitment is the Drysdale Community Foundation that she founded, which in 2021 donated $68,000 to local organizations.
