Wayne Woodyard

Prudential California Realty is pleased to announce that Real Estate Broker Wayne Woodyard will be the new assistant manager of the company’s network of offices in coastal Orange County. Woodyard, who is based out of Prudential’s Newport Beach office, will also be assisting in the recruiting of experienced agents throughout Orange County’s coastal areas.

“Wayne brings his comprehensive knowledge of our coast, along with great sales and management expertise, to enhance our management team,” says Patti Brotherton, Prudential’s regional vice president of Orange County. “We are delighted to have him on board.”

A 19-year industry veteran, Woodyard has been highly successful as the leader of a number of different Laguna Beach-area real estate brokerages. Most recently, as the manager of a firm specializing in luxury real estate throughout Laguna Beach, he captured 60 percent of the market share for listings valued over $6 million and achieved profitability within the first year of operation.  

Over the course of his 11 years working in real estate management, Woodyard earned a reputation for his distinctive leadership style, as well as his capacity for recruiting new agents and retaining existing team members. Known as a talented business coach and mentor, he attributes his success to his understanding of the legal issues that pertain to real estate, in addition to his ability to effectively communicate with people of vastly differing cultures and backgrounds.

“I am very excited about my new position with Prudential,” says Woodyard, who has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Accounting. “The depth and breadth of their toolbox is simply amazing. As other brokerages are trying to catch up with technology, Prudential’s consistent investments into its infrastructure are already providing a significant advantage to the company’s agents and clients. By making their technological and marketing systems fast, simple and cutting edge, Prudential allows new agents as well as experienced professionals to take their business to the next level.”
