The Agency is diving into island life with the launch of its new franchise office in the Cayman Islands. This debut marks the firm’s second Caribbean location—joining an office in Turks & Caicos—and is the 38th franchise among The Agency’s growing network of offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe. The Agency Cayman Islands will be based in the capital city of George Town, with Stefan Cohen leading as Owner & Director of the franchise and Max Hillier as Broker. Stefan, Max and the local team will serve buyers and sellers throughout the territory of the Cayman Islands.


With more than 300 days of sunshine per year and 99 miles of world-famous white-sand beaches, it's no wonder the Cayman Islands attracts tourists and real estate investors from around the globe. A self-governing British Overseas Territory, the Cayman Islands comprises three islands—Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac. This Caribbean destination offers some of the region’s most coveted properties, from waterfront condos to expansive beachfront villas.


“We’re delighted to continue The Agency’s expansion throughout the Caribbean and partner with leading industry professionals Stefan Cohen and Max Hillier on our new franchise office in the Cayman Islands,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “Stefan and Max are both extremely accomplished and hold a shared vision of collaboration and providing best-in-class service to clients. We know they will be incredible stewards of The Agency brand.”


The Agency has rapidly expanded its presence across the globe throughout the past year. In 2021, the firm’s global expansion reached new heights with a record-breaking launch of 11 new franchises in one year, making it one of the fastest-growing luxury boutique brokerages in the world. Over the past 12 months, The Agency has showcased impressive franchise growth throughout the U.S. and Canada—including new offices in Amsterdam, Downtown Toronto, Montréal, Ottawa, Muskoka, Brantford, Naples, Florida, Bal Harbour, Florida, Birmingham, Michigan, Seattle, Washington, North Atlanta, GeorgiaAustin, Texas, and Frederick, MD. This expansion into the Cayman Islands is a testament to the continued demand for the brand throughout the Caribbean.


“We’re delighted Stefan and Max will be at the helm of our first franchise in the Cayman Islands,” said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales at The Agency. “Our brand has seen tremendous success in the Caribbean, so we look forward to continuing to establish ourselves as the premier boutique luxury brokerage with our launch in the Cayman Islands as we continue our expansion into key markets across the globe.”


“I am so excited to launch The Agency’s first franchise in the Cayman Islands,” said Stefan. “No other brokerage offers the unmatched marketing power, tools, and technology that The Agency brings to the market, not to mention the level of service and solutions offered to agents and their clients. I look forward to showcasing the power of The Agency brand in our highly sought-after island destination.”


The Agency Cayman Islands is located at 51 Fort Street, George Town, Cayman Islands, Grand Cayman.
