We are excited to announce that Danny Brown, one of L.A.’s and the nation’s top-ranked real estate agents, has joined the team as Partner at The Agency. Danny brings more than 15 years of experience in L.A.’s Westside luxury market and a stellar reputation as a passionate advocate for his clients. “I’m thrilled to be surrounded by such a dynamic group of talented people,” Danny said. “It’s been clear to me over the past few years that The Agency is operating on an entirely different level in the industry. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to partner with Billy, Mauricio and Santiago and help them execute their strategic vision as we continue to scale the business in the years to come.” Danny remains a trusted and respected voice among his clients and colleagues, having closed more than 200 transactions in the luxury markets of Brentwood, Palisades, Santa Monica, Westwood, Cheviot Hills and Beverly Hills. At Berkshire Hathaway, he ranked among the top 100 out of 50,000 agents nationwide for production and among the top 250 in the country based on average sale price by the Wall Street Journal. “Bringing Danny on board is really giving us the best of both worlds,” explained Mauricio Umansky, Co-founder and CEO at The Agency. “Not only is he a highly successful real estate agent with a meticulous reputation, he is also a strong leader with the ability to mentor fellow agents and contribute to the overall vision of the company.” Santiago Arana, Principal and Partner at The Agency added, "I've known Danny for many years and have worked with him numerous times in the field. With his work ethic and experience, Danny will make a wonderful addition to the family." Danny also brings an extensive background in design and development, working on numerous development projects with his clients over the years. “One of our specialties at The Agency is our focus on world class architectural estates and development projects. Danny’s sharp sense for identifying these properties and envisioning what a project can become is a talent that will benefit our team as a whole,” says Billy Rose, Co-founder and President of The Agency. As for what the decision to join The Agency means for his clients, Danny explains, they’ll be directly impacted in a huge way, whether they are in the market to sell or purchase. “Our in-house creative agency is sought after by significant global brands. We’re able to leverage this valuable asset to position and brand each property we list. This has never been done in our industry and as a result, we are able to maximize our clients’ real estate portfolios.” Danny added, “We have so much velocity and control of the off-market inventory which enables us to offer our clients quality opportunities that no one else is aware of.” A native Angeleno, Danny holds a degree in International Relations from the University of Southern California where he played college baseball. He resides in Cheviot Hills with his wife, Jessica, and three children, Henry, George, and Inez.
