Mauricio Umansky is the Founder and CEO of The Agency, a billion-dollar brokerage that utilizes world-class technology and innovative marketing strategies to assist agents and their clients in achieving their real estate goals. Since its inception in 2011, the firm set out to create an industry-disrupting model that would redefine the business and foster a unique culture rooted in the core philosophy of collaboration. In its ten years, The Agency has done that and much more.
Mauricio has achieved nearly $5 billion in real estate sales and holds the distinction of selling the most homes in the country priced above $20M. He has represented some of the world’s most noteworthy properties, including the Playboy Mansion—the first house in L.A. to sell above the $100M mark—the Walt Disney Estate, and residences owned by Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan and Prince. Mauricio and The Agency also represent some of the world’s top developers and resort brands, including One&Only, Rosewood and The Ritz-Carlton.
Together with his team, Mauricio is noted as one of the highest-producing agents by The Wall Street Journal’s REAL Trends annual list. He has also received the Entrepreneur Of The Year Greater Los Angeles Award for 2023 and been ranked #69 on Swanepoel’s 2023 Power200, a prestigious list of top real estate executives in the U.S.
With solid infrastructure and a renowned brand that is featured on international television shows —including Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and most recently, Buying Beverly Hills on Netflix—The Agency has grown to over 100 offices and over 2,000 agents across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and Europe. Poised for further expansion with like-minded partners in strategic markets, The Agency was recognized by Inman as a top luxury brokerage, noted by The Financial Times as one of America’s Fastest Growing Companies and has ranked among Inc. 5000’s list of fastest-growing private companies in the country for seven consecutive years.
Mauricio recently published The Dealmaker, now available in bookstores around the country. He is also a proud member of The Young Presidents Organization (YPO), an influential and world-renowned business networking organization. His philanthropic work includes serving as a board member for Giveback Homes, an organization dedicated to building homes for families in need. He is also a longtime supporter of The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the National Breast Cancer Association.
