From record sales to new listings and landmark office debuts, August was a busy month for The Agency. All eyes were on our A-List team of agents (and clients) as they made remarkable real estate moves around the globe. Here are some of the month’s hottest headlines that made waves. 

848 HOT SPRINGS ROAD - This Spanish palace-inspired villa in Montecito got a nod from Forbes, which spotlighted the 11,947-square-foot mansion and its style, which “recalls another time and place, like a Moorish monarch’s palace from the 13th century (except situated on a picturesque hillside in affluent Montecito).” The property, Forbes writes, is “like a mirage, it arouses double-takes.”  Billy Rose, who represents the home, described its eclectic style to Robb Report

We’re proud to announce that for the fourth year in a row, The Agency has ranked on Inc. 5000 ’s list of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America. In another point of pride, The Agency also made a significant jump in rank this year, from #3,947 in 2018 to #3,174. 

The Inc. 5000 ranks each company based on percentage revenue growth over a three-year time span. The Agency has experienced a 115% growth increase. Out of the nation’s nearly seven million private companies, only a small fraction have demonstrated such remarkably high, consistent growth. 

“We are so pleased to be a part of the Inc. 5000 ’s list once again, it’s incredible to see how we’ve progressed as a company just over the last year,” says Billy Rose, Co-Founder of The Agency.

Northern California’s best-kept secret is out. Ross, a bucolic, chaparral and live oak tree-filled enclave in Marin County, sits less than 20 miles from San Francisco and has emerged as one of the most sought-after neighborhoods among Silicon Valley professionals looking to put down roots in a naturally beautiful place that offers a reprieve from city life.

The Agency is once again on the move, continuing its expansion into Mexico with the opening of offices in La Paz and Todos Santos.

Windsor is known for her modern-meets-classical point of view and strong celebrity following—Gwyneth Paltrow is a prominent fan and purchased Windsor’s first home in Mandeville Canyon in the early 2000s. Windsor joked to The Wall Street Journal that Gwyneth had been to the newly completed Brentwood property many times, but having purchased two of her homes already she “isn’t allowed to buy it."
