The Agency’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Technology Officer, Shane Farkas, recently participated on a panel at the annual Propel by MIPIM in New York City. This international conference and expo brings together hundreds of real estate professionals, venture capitalists, technology executives and key decision-makers in real estate from the United States and Canada to assess the latest solutions as well as innovations that will drive the future.

Sponsored by The Real Deal, Breaking Down the Brokerage: New Strategies for Keeping Up with the Residential Market, featured Shane alongside select leaders in the space, including

Elizabeth Ann Stribling-Kivlan, Senior Managing Director of Compass, and Gary Malin, Chief Operating Officer of The Corcoran Group, to discuss the unprecedented speed of evolution in the market. Industry professionals eagerly listened as the panel offered insights on the shifts in buyer needs brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and how to navigate high demand, bidding wars and industry disruptions.

As part of the executive leadership team at The Agency, Shane brought the unique perspective of a pioneering brokerage that has redefined the industry with a model in which agents share resources and tap into creative services and groundbreaking marketing, sales, and technology solutions. An integral member of the company's founding team, he has played an instrumental role in developing all of The Agency’s operational systems and processes, including the technology division’s industry-leading, proprietary software platforms.
