The Agency is honored to once again be selected among Variety's "Showbiz Real Estate Elite," with six of our agents recognized on 2018’s list of top-producing talent. Topping the list this year are Mauricio Umansky, Billy Rose, Santiago Arana, Emil Hartoonian, James Harris and David Parnes.
Each year, Variety spotlights the industry’s leading agents who help stars, celebs, directors, producers and assorted showbiz execs sell their holdings and find the home of their dreams. “Variety’s annual Showbiz Real Estate Elite are the entertainment industry’s go-to agents, not just in Hollywood, but also on the East Coast, in Miami and even in Europe, Latin America and Asia,” the magazine says. “Their clients come from all over the globe.”
The feature kicked off with a story highlighting the ways in which high-end real estate companies are expanding into the luxury lifestyle realm, spotlighting The Agency’s weekly newsletter, which boasts 180,000 subscribers alone. “Now, it’s about storytelling,” Mauricio tells Variety. “You have to market through telling a story. Buyers are looking for a lifestyle and you have to curate that lifestyle for them.”
Congratulations to our founders and agents on yet another stunning accomplishment. Checkout the latest issue of Variety on newsstands now.
