Hey Boston, we know a thing or two about starting revolutions. The Agency’s international expansion continues, this time on the East Coast with the launch of our new Boston location. The Boston office is led by Managing Partner Eric Rollo, who along with his team, will service Greater Boston, Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Eric and launch our new franchise in Boston as we expand our brand’s presence on the East Coast,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “Eric will be a wonderful steward of our unique Agency culture as he grows his team with like-minded professionals.”
The Agency has continued its robust expansion with the launch of several new franchise locations this year in Oakville, Canada, New Canaan, Connecticut, North Shore-New York, Calgary, Canada and Vancouver, Canada, as well as new corporate office locations in Studio City and Pacific Palisades, California.
“Our strategic expansion on the East Coast has been extraordinary as we continue to feed the demand around the world for a brand like The Agency,” said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales. “We’re incredibly excited to welcome Eric to The Agency family and showcase our world-class offerings to buyers and sellers in the Greater Boston area, Cape and the Islands.”
Eric brings 15 years of real estate experience and a stellar reputation to The Agency. Having sold more than $165 million in real estate over the course of his career, he has won several accolades, including being named among Realtor Magazine’s “30 Under 30” in 2015. Prior to joining The Agency, Rollo worked for the largest family-owned real estate firm in New England, leading the top-producing team in their Back Bay office. His first foray into the real estate industry was with a suburban company specializing in investment properties, where he worked with investment clients, rental clients, and condominium owners. Seeing an opportunity to expand his career, Rollo obtained his broker’s license and opened his own firm after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Communications from Roger Williams University.
While pursuing his master’s degree at Northeastern University, Rollo met his wife, Valerie. The couple resides in Jamaica Plain where they enjoy exploring the local culinary scene, cheering on their beloved Boston sports teams, and remain actively involved as board members of Friends of Boston’s Homeless and the Center for Advanced Financial Education at Roger Williams University.
“I am delighted to join The Agency and begin this next chapter of my career,” said Eric. “I’ve long admired The Agency’s unique brand and culture and look forward to taking my business to the next level with the brand’s unparalleled marketing, technology offerings, and forward-thinking approach to luxury real estate.”
The Agency Boston will be located at 435 Columbus Avenue, Boston, MA 02116.
