Founders and Mission
A team of people who aspired to progress our industry and change the experience of buying and selling real estate founded The Agency. They set out to raise the bar as far as the type of representation people were receiving and in turn, deliver a more effective way of doing business. The Agency was founded by Mauricio Umansky, who was recently recognized by The Wall Street Journal as the #3 top-producing real estate agent in the U.S. and #1 in California, his father and business partner Eduardo Umansky, design and architectural specialists Billy Rose, who was recently recognized as the #18 top-producing real estate agent in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal, 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.
The Agency’s mission is to modernize and progress the experience of buying and selling real estate by cultivating a spirit of collaboration, innovation, and integrity.
“The Agency fosters a culture of partnership in which all clients and listings are represented in a cooperative environment by all its agents, thereby ensuring its clients and listings have the competitive edge.” Mauricio Umansky, CEO and co-founder.
“Leveraging the most emergent technologies and social media strategies, The Agency envisions itself as more than just a real estate brokerage; it is a lifestyle company committed to informing and connecting global communities.” Billy Rose, President and co-founder.
