The Agency is excited to announce a new Canadian franchise office in Oakville, Ontario—a scenic waterfront town, home to some of the most stunning luxurious properties in Canada and the famed Lakeshore Road. This new locale marks our 17th franchise among a fast-growing network of offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. The Oakville office is a strategic expansion in Canada and will complement existing offices in Waterloo. Heads of the Waterloo region, Katia Bailey and Steve Bailey, will spearhead the Oakville branch.


“Our strategic expansion in Canada has been a successful venture for The Agency as we continue sharing our unique brand and culture internationally,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “The launch of our franchise office in Oakville, helmed by our esteemed partners Steve Bailey and Katia Bailey, will bring further awareness of The Agency brand in the area and the unparalleled resources we offer to clients and agents.”


The launch of the Oakville office follows a huge amount of growth at The Agency, with the recent launch of an additional new franchise location in New Canaan, Connecticut, and a corporate office in Studio City, California. We will soon be unveiling a new franchise partnership in Huntington, Long Island.


“Canada has been at the forefront of The Agency’s expansion efforts and we’re thrilled to be opening a new office in such a sought-after location as Oakville,” said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales. “We look forward to announcing new franchise partners, both domestically and internationally, very soon.”
