As president and CEO, Blaylock will set the strategy and direct operations for BHHS California Properties and will oversee all aspects of BHHS California Properties’ affiliated businesses, including HomeServices Lending, Pickford Escrow, The Escrow Firm, California Title and Home Services Insurance Agency. “We have a team of immensely talented agents, sales managers and employees,” says Blaylock, president and CEO of BHHS California Properties. “I look forward to leading BHHS California Properties to its next stage of growth and performance, supported by our world class management team.”
“Mary Lee is extraordinarily well-qualified to serve as president and CEO,” says Cabot, chairman of BHHS California Properties. “Under her leadership, coupled with our remarkable agents and management team, BHHS California Properties is poised for even greater growth and success.”
Blaylock has served as senior vice president and general manager of BHHS California Properties since 2014 where she has provided strategic leadership and direction to the company’s 60 sales offices and more than 3,000 agents and has played an active role in growing the companies’ mortgage, title and escrow and insurance businesses.
As chairman, Cabot will support the strategic growth initiatives of the organization as well as representing the company at the state, local and national levels of the real estate industry associations.
Cabot has served as president and CEO of BHHS California Properties since 2011 and under his leadership, BHHS California Properties has consistently ranked within the top tier of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices franchise network.
