Ginger Wilcox Moves to the Helm of BHGRE
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, the real estate network within the Anywhere Real Estate Inc. portfolio of brands, announced recently a new leader for the BHGRE brand. Effective immediately, Ginger Wilcox will serve as brand president of BHGRE, stepping into the role that was long occupied by industry icon Sherry Chris, who recently became an executive advisor for Anywhere Brands. Wilcox will serve BHGRE’s global network of more than 12,000 affiliated brokers and independent sales associates and approximately 420 offices across the United States, Canada, Jamaica, The Bahamas, Australia, and Turkey.
Wilcox moves to the helm of BHGRE after holding several prominent leadership roles spanning real estate technology, brokerage, and transaction services. She brings a proven track record of developing and growing unique brands in the industry, having served as Head of Industry Marketing and Relations for Trulia, an online real estate marketplace, where she focused on marketing innovation and digital engagement. Early in her career, Wilcox developed an award-winning online real estate brand and brokerage, Marin Fine Properties, which was honored as a finalist for the Inman Innovator Awards for most innovative real estate website, as well as a finalist for the National Association of Realtors Center for Realtor Technology Spotlight Awards.
Wilcox most recently served as Co-CEO and Chief Revenue Officer of RealSure, the joint venture between Anywhere and Home Partners of America that developed innovative solutions to reduce friction in residential real estate transactions. Prior to RealSure, Wilcox was Chief Experience Officer at Homepoint, a leading mortgage lender that, under Wilcox’s strategic direction and brand building efforts, grew into the third largest wholesale mortgage lender and the 10th-largest non-bank mortgage lender in the United States with over 400,000 customers.
“Ginger is the perfect person to lead the premier real estate lifestyle brand of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate as she is experienced at growing companies and differentiating the unique value of brands,” said Liz Gehringer, president and CEO of Anywhere Franchise Brands. “She continues to showcase herself as a force of change through the broader real estate industry and will be a huge asset to the network of dedicated franchise owners, brokerage leaders, and affiliated agents.”
She has consistently been recognized by the industry for her impact and distinct experience, including recognitions as a member of the SP200, an Inman Top Real Estate Influencer, a 2020 HousingWire Tech Trendsetter, and a multi-time HousingWire Woman of Influence.
Chris, who previously served as the leader of BHGRE and ERA Real Estate, is collaborating closely with Yannaccone and Gehringer in her capacity as executive advisor to facilitate continued growth throughout the Anywhere network of franchisees across its six brands: Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, CENTURY 21, Coldwell Banker, Corcoran, ERA, and Sotheby’s International Realty.
