July 23, 2019 – Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices KoenigRubloff Realty Group today announced that three of the firm’s senior managers have been promoted to jointly lead the company.

Nancy Nagy, chief executive officer, also announced that she would be moving away from day-to-day operations and, step into an advisory role with the firm.
“We are creating a new model for real estate leadership by bringing together three extraordinary individuals with leadership expertise in areas that are key to agent success,” said Ron Peltier, executive chairman of HomeServices of America, parent company of KoenigRubloff Realty Group. “We are building an agile team with wide-ranging expertise and insight that positions us to capitalize on opportunities for growth today and far into the future.”

Glass has been with the company for 12 years and currently oversees the firm’s business development, information technology and agent development departments. She is widely respected as a thought leader on technology platforms, and has developed industry-leading training programs, while raising standards for agent support.
Mark Pasquesi has been named president of brokerage and will focus on agent experience and strategic expansion initiatives. Pasquesi has served as vice president and managing broker for the Lake Forest, Highland Park and Libertyville offices. The Lake Forest office has the top market share in the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff area and is the No. 1 office in Lake County for luxury sales.
Joe Stacy assumes the role of senior vice president and general sales manager and will be dedicated to leading agent sales coaching and professional sales success. Stacy, known as a prodigious agent growth coach, has successfully managed the city’s Michigan Avenue office and the west suburban Glen Ellyn, Naperville, Wheaton and Schaumburg offices. Stacy also leads the philanthropic work done by the KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation and their involvement with the Sunshine Kids.
