The Agency is a full-service, luxury real estate brokerage and lifestyle company representing clients worldwide in a broad spectrum of classes, including single-family residential, new development, resort and hospitality, residential leasing, commercial real estate and luxury vacation rental.
The Agency was founded by Mauricio Umansky, who was recently recognized by The Wall Street Journal as the #1 top-producing real estate agent in California and #3 in the U.S., his father and business partner Eduardo Umansky, and design and architectural specialists Billy Rose (who was recently recognized by The Wall Street Journal as the #21 top-producing real estate agent in the U.S.) and Blair Chang, whose Rose + Chang team was named multiple times as one of the Top 100 U.S. real estate sales teams by The Wall Street Journal.
Shunning the traditional brokerage model of cut-throat agents competing against each other, The Agency fosters a culture of partnership in which all clients and listings are represented in a collaborative environment by all its agents, thereby ensuring its clients and listings have the competitive edge. This approach has proven highly successful. In less than two years, The Agency has closed more than $1.5 billion in residential sales and established itself as one of the preeminent players in the luxury real estate market, representing many of the country’s most visible and high-end properties.
The Agency extends far beyond what a conventional brokerage firm offers. It envisions itself as both a lifestyle company committed to informing and connecting global communities, and as a creative agency offering design, marketing and sales solutions for buyers, sellers, developers and investors across the globe. Our in-house team of graphic designers, analysts, tech gurus and marketing strategists work with the agents to provide unparalleled service to every client. We collaborate with clients to design and implement a tailored, full-service marketing strategy for each new listing at The Agency, utilizing our relationships with traditional and new media outlets – and leveraging the most emergent technologies and social media strategies – to ensure maximum exposure for every property we represent.
