All eyes were on South Florida when CEO Mauricio Umansky, James Harris of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, Estate Director Christopher Dyson and Managing Partner of The Agency Development Group Mike Leipart jetted to the Sunshine State to celebrate the hottest new listings in town, as well as the success of as it rapidly expands on the East Coast.

Among the week’s festivities was a private, invite-only affair at Merrick Manor, the only new, fully completed condominium offering in the city of Coral Gables. The Agency Collective, the exclusive residential sales representative for the remarkable, modern residences, co-hosted the event with CEO Henry Torres of The Astor Companies, the developer of Merrick Manor. Mauricio, James and Christopher joined Miami’s top brokers and power players for an evening of cocktails, world-class cuisine and conversation in Merrick Manor’s Club Lounge. They treated brokers to an inside look at the newly completed, sophisticated residences and exceptional amenities located adjacent to The Shops at Merrick Park and discussed the desirability of the Coral Gables market.

“Merrick Manor offers an amazing location and an incredible product,” Mauricio says. “With highly curated design by Interiors by Steven G., the residences truly set a high bar for new construction in Coral Gables.” The Agency’s creative division, The Agency Creates, recently launched, providing a detailed look at the Merrick Manor lifestyle.

Christopher, who together with Mauricio and James formed, spoke to the crowd of brokers about the first private platform for agents across the country to consolidate, share and search exclusive pocket listings in their area. Christopher and James held broker open houses throughout the week in Biscayne Beach and Boca Raton to introduce and help South Florida agents join the hugely successful platform designed to complement the MLS.

The Agency’s South Florida expansion includes offices in Boca Raton, Aventura, Coral Gables and Jupiter—the brokerage’s first offices on the East Coast. “Our South Florida offices are only the beginning of our East Coast expansion,” explains Mauricio. “We have many clients seeking real estate in South Florida and are so thrilled with the team we’ve built at The Agency Collective.”
