Gwendolyn "Wendy" Barisonek

Sales Associate Chatham office

With deep local ties and a highly-organized work style, Wendy brings a wealth of personal and professional experience to her sales associate position. Before joining the Chatham Office, she was a leading executive for some of New York’s top public relations firms, developing and executing award-winning campaigns and programs for a range of clients. She brings that same drive and motivation to her real estate career. 


Born and raised in Morris County, Wendy lives in the New Vernon section of Harding Township. She graduated from Georgetown University where she studied English and psychology.  


The decision to join Turpin was an easy one for Wendy, who said she can’t imagine practicing real estate anywhere else. “I have a number of friends and family members who have been a part of the Turpin Real Estate family for years. Having bought and sold my own homes with Turpin, I greatly respect and appreciate the professionalism and market leadership for which Turpin is renowned. But more importantly, I admire the culture of personal integrity and quality of character,” she said. 


Having spent her formative years in the area and now raising her own family here, Wendy can provide detailed, first-hand knowledge of many towns in Morris, Union and Somerset Counties including information on neighborhoods, schools, businesses, activities, recreation, entertainment and countless other amenities. 


Close ties to her community are evident in Wendy’s dedication to volunteer and non-profit groups. Her public relations background is valuable as a Board Member and Vice President of Communications for the Berkeley Aquatic Club parent organization. In that role, she helps maintain the team’s website, manages online registration and oversees creation and production of their bi-monthly newsletter. Wendy is also involved with the Women’s Association of Morristown Medical Center as a Member and Event Co-Chair of the “Garden State of Mind Weekend” which raised more than $100,000 for the Women’s Cancer Center, as well as an Operating Committee Member for The Harding Twig which supports the Goryeb Children’s Hospital. She serves as a Class Ambassador and Alumni Admissions Program Committee Member for Georgetown University. Wendy is also an active member and volunteer with Church of Christ the King in New Vernon. 


Friends and family members describe Wendy as friendly, outgoing, optimistic, a good listener, helpful and curious about people. These personality traits combine to make her an engaging presence in the office, as well as a successful professional who is well respected by clients and co-workers. Wendy welcomes your future call or visit, and looks forward to helping you achieve your unique real estate goals.
