Our hearts go out to the individuals and families affected by the wildfires in our beloved California communities. Words cannot describe the devastation our state has experienced, and The Agency family stands ready to support all who have been affected by the fires. Some of our colleagues, clients, friends and family have lost their homes and are facing a long road to recovery ahead. We thank the brave firefighters who are putting their lives on the line to help those in need. On behalf of Mauricio Umansky, Billy Rose and The Agency, we ask anyone who is able to join us in supporting those affected. We are always stronger when we come together.

Donation to LAFD 

The Agency extends its deepest gratitude and respect to the brave firefighters on the frontline when disasters like these strike. The Agency will be donating to the Los Angeles Fire Department in this great time of need. We encourage you to do the same; no amount is too small and LAFD is specifically asking for monetary donations in lieu of physical goods. You can donate directly to the LAFD at www.supportlafd.org. 

Pairing People with Homes

For our clients with active lease listings and the means, we are asking they consider offering their residences to victims of the fire for $1 for a short-term lease. In turn, our agents will waive their commission for the lease, and The Agency will waive the company split for the lease as we work to pair victims with homes. If you are interested in offering your listing to victims of the fire, please contact your agent directly.
