Leading the Way: Celebrating Our 2022 RealTrends Emerging Leaders

by | Jul 13, 2022

Congratulations are in order! The Agency is proud to announce that agents Griffin Riddle and Alex Vichinsky have been named among the 2022 RealTrends Emerging Leaders, which recognizes “trailblazers who are making their mark in real estate and ushering in a new generation of leaders.” Griffin and Alex have been included on a prestigious list of just 55 real estate professionals from across the country.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate Alex Vichinsky and Griffin Riddle for their impressive placement on RealTrends’s Emerging Leaders list,” said Rainy Hake Austin, President of The Agency. “After a record-breaking year, we’re excited to honor the tremendous achievements and success of our very own emerging leaders.”

Based at The Agency in Beverly Hills, Griffin Riddle has more than doubled his sales in the past 12 months—having sold $64M in 2020 to selling over $160M in 2021, all while being under 30 years old. Known for his exceptional client relations, sales, marketing and goal-setting skills, Riddle works with the utmost professionalism and positive attitude to achieve his client’s goals. Despite being young himself, Griffin is dedicated to giving back and helping new agents grow their businesses as he has been able to do with the support of several mentees over the last few years.

Bay Area native Alex Vichinsky, the team lead at Bond Street Partners, brings more than a decade of experience working for some of the biggest tech companies in Silicon Valley to The Agency. Prior to real estate, Alex spent ten years at prominent Silicon Valley tech companies, including Facebook, Square and Linkedin. Representing buyers and sellers from Venice to West Hollywood and The Valley, Vichinsky serves as an invaluable guide throughout the entire transaction process, having sold over $143M in 2021 alone (lifetime sales of $265M+). Vichinsky has had his biggest year in real estate so far, with his highest sale to date of $20M, becoming a team lead on Bond Street Partners.

The Agency is proud to have Griffin and Alex as part of our very own real estate emerging leaders. For a full list of this year’s honorees, visit RealTrends.com.
