From New Canaan to Calgary, Maui to Punta Mita, and Turks & Caicos to Los Angeles, our team made major headlines around the globe this month. See what The New York Times, The Calgary Herald, Mansion Global, Inman and more had to say about our agents, new offices and amazing new listings.

MAURICIO UMANSKYNew Canaan Darien + Rowayton Magazine caught up with Mauricio Umansky to discuss The Agency’s east coast expansion and the launch of the new franchise office in New Canaan, Connecticut. “The Agency has continued its growth trajectory with the debut of multiple new franchise locations this year, with our expansion on the east coast as a top priority. Introducing and expanding our brand’s presence with our existing offices inland in synergistic regions including Boston, Montreal, Las Vegas, Maui, Denver, Seattle and the Cayman Islands is paramount to us,” Mauricio told the magazine.

KRISTINE SEMRAUThe Calgary Herald recently called upon Kristine Semrau for her expert commentary as the paper looked at how the pandemic has created changes as to where older Canadians want to live. “Still the lock-and-leave lifestyle (of condominiums) is appealing to many older buyers with properties in Palm Springs and other destinations,” Kristine told the newspaper.

ALEJANDRO ALDRETEMansion Global shone the spotlight on Punta Mita and caught up with Alejandro Aldrete for an update on the real estate market in the beautiful Mexican destination. He shared that sales have been “out of control since last summer,” and added that inventory levels are very low because everything is being bought and that the “market is as hot as it’s ever been.”

DAVID PARNES & JAMES HARRISMansion Global also featured another new Agency listing with some serious Hollywood history. Represented by David Parnes and James Harris, The Fries Estate was once owned by Paramount Pictures, and more recently by the late television producer Charles Fries. This stunning property truly captures the essence of quintessential Beverly Hills.
