We are thrilled to share that for the third year in a row, Financial Times has ranked The Agency as one of The Americas’ fastest-growing companies. Out of the millions of North and South American enterprises in existence today, The Agency is one of just 500 that grew fast enough to enter this prestigious ranking, joining boundary-breaking medical technology, fintech and digital companies as well as household names like Amazon, Tesla, Etsy and Wayfair.
The Agency is among only nine companies in the property category that made the exclusive ranking—and rose 44 spots over last year. “The Agency experienced tremendous growth in 2021,” notes CEO and Founder Mauricio Umansky. “We expanded our global network while truly maintaining our boutique, luxury approach to the business. My dream is to create a global company that still operates as a boutique. Learning from others that came before us, we intend to offer the 2.0 version of luxury real estate as we seek to provide a seamless, integrated experience for our agents and clients like yet to be seen in our industry.”
In 2021, The Agency launched a record 12 new offices around the world, and has debuted several new locations since the start of 2022, including franchises in Downtown Toronto, Montreal, Naples, Ottawa, Muskoka and Birmingham, Michigan.
In order to compile and vet their rankings, the Financial Times partnered with the market data specialists at Statista and conducted months of research, public calls, intensive database research and directly contacted tens of thousands of companies.
“The third annual FT ranking of The Americas’ Fastest-Growing Companies captures the resilience of businesses as they adapted to the initial onslaught of the Covid pandemic, in 2020,” reports Financial Times. “Since that initial response, business leaders across the region have vowed to ‘build back better’ — with increased digitalisation across several sectors and faster improvements in green energy generation and infrastructure. The technology sector enjoyed rapid growth as the coronavirus crisis deepened and more people began to work, shop and communicate through digital channels.”
