At an awards gala on September 19, it was announced that The Agency was Highly Commended as one of two winners of “Best Real Estate Company: California” at the prestigious International Property Awards 2014-15.

The Agency competed against a number of high-profile real estate agents and property consultants across California to receive this recognition. The announcement was made at an awards gala and presentation dinner at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE hotel on Friday September 19th, where heads of the industry gathered for an evening of networking, drinks and appreciation. Mauricio Umansky and Billy Rose, CEO and President of The Agency, respectively, were present to accept the award.

This award represents a significant achievement for The Agency. The IPA winners’ logo is recognised as a symbol of excellence throughout the industry, and all competition entrants are rigorously assessed by a judging panel consisting of over 70 highly respected experts from all over the world, chaired by three active members of the House of Lords: Lord Caithness, Lord Best and Lord Courtown.

“The quality of entries across all categories in the Americas regional stage was exceptionally high this year,” notes Stuart Shield, president of the International Property Awards. “So our winners fully deserve the right to display the prestigious Awards ribbon. We are delighted to honour such high standards of innovation and professionalism.”
