The Agency’s global expansion continues, with leading industry executive Rachel Guerin tapped to run the newly launched Relocation Department. Rachel joins The Agency after holding senior leadership positions at Coldwell Banker, Lyon Real Estate, and most recently, Compass. She brings almost 30 years of real estate industry experience to The Agency at a time of impressive growth for the company. The Agency has recently announced a collection of new corporate and franchise offices nationally and internationally and will reveal more global locales shortly.


“We are so pleased to welcome Rachel to The Agency to spearhead our new Relocation Department and to strengthen our robust referral connections throughout our global network,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO & Founder of The Agency. “The launch of our Relocation Department is another great milestone for The Agency as we continue to grow both our footprint around the world and our experienced leadership team.”


“Rachel will be a great asset for our agents and our clients as we all work toward the same goal of elevating the experience of buying and selling real estate with a personalized touch and first-class service,” said President of The Agency, Rainy Hake Austin. “We are thrilled to have her as an important member of our team as we grow with like-minded partners around the world.”


Rachel will be an instrumental resource for The Agency’s agents as they further build their referral networks. Her focus will be on establishing programs and identifying resources and opportunities for agents to enhance their client experience. She will also create new business development opportunities and establish key partnerships with global corporations in servicing employee mobility needs. Rachel will work closely with The Agency’s expert team of training staff to further establish relocation curriculum and educational programs pertaining to the relocation business.


“I have long admired The Agency and team for their unique culture and spirit,” Rachel said. “I am looking forward to working with The Agency’s wonderful agents and staff as we grow our relocation department throughout our offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and The Caribbean.”


The Agency recently launched several new franchise locations including Boston, Massachusetts, Vancouver, Calgary and Oakville, Canada, New Canaan, Connecticut, and North Shore-New York, as well as new corporate office locations in Studio City and Pacific Palisades, California. The firm will reveal new international locations and unveil offices on the east coast later this summer.
