The Agency is proud to now call one of the world’s most coveted island destinations home. Launching with a splash, The Agency’s first Hawaiian office is located in Maui and is led by acclaimed real estate agents and Managing Partners Yvienne and Gerrit Peterson.


“Maui is one of the country’s premier luxury real estate destinations for both local and second home buyers. Expanding our footprint on the island is an exciting next chapter for The Agency,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “We are thrilled to be partnering with such accomplished agents as Yvienne and Gerrit on this venture as we continue to grow The Agency brand around the world.”


“We’re incredibly excited to welcome our partners Yvienne and Gerrit to The Agency family as we continue to open new franchise locations both domestically and internationally,” said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales at The Agency. “The luxury real estate market in Maui needs the unparalleled resources and marketing capabilities of The Agency, and we can’t wait to introduce our unique brand to the island.”


Born and raised on Maui, Yvienne brings more than 20 years of experience in luxury real estate to her role at The Agency. A relentless negotiator and top producing agent, Yvienne has gained a trusted reputation for her unparalleled service and skillful approach to helping her clients through the buying and selling process. With a commitment to her community at the center of her business, she enjoys giving her time to several local charitable organizations on the island.


Gerrit brings more than 20 years of experience in luxury real estate and construction to The Agency. With a wealth of knowledge of the local Maui market, he worked as a builder for several high-profile development projects on the island prior to entering the luxury real estate industry as an agent. With his meticulous attention to detail and laid-back personality, Gerrit keeps his clients at ease throughout the buying and selling process while providing the ultimate white-glove service. Along with his wife Yvienne, Gerrit enjoys giving his time to several local community organizations, as well as spending time with his three children.


“We are thrilled to be a part of The Agency family and showcase the brand’s unmatched offerings to our clients,” said Yvienne. “No other real estate brokerage on the island delivers on the marketing and technology services that The Agency provides. We are confident our clients will know and feel the difference.”


The Maui office is the 21st franchise among The Agency’s robust network of offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. The Agency has continued its growth trajectory with the debut of multiple new franchise locations this year in Oakville, Canada, New Canaan, Connecticut, North Shore-New York, Calgary, Canada, and Vancouver, Canada, as well as new corporate office locations in Studio City and Pacific Palisades, California.
