The Agency is thrilled to welcome a new franchise office in New Canaan, Connecticut to the family, marking our 17th franchise among a fast-growing network of offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean.


“The luxury market in Connecticut is thriving and we’re thrilled to broaden our reach and referral network with our franchise in New Canaan,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “We welcome our like-minded partners, Todd David Miller and Cliff Smith, who will be wonderful stewards of our unique Agency culture.”


The Agency family just continues to grow, with the launch of an additional new franchise location Oakville, Canada, and a corporate office in Studio City, California. We will soon be unveiling a new franchisee partnership in Huntington, Long Island.


“Our new franchise in Connecticut is a testament to the strength and excitement surrounding The Agency and its unparalleled offerings to agents,” said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales at The Agency. “We look forward to expanding our footprint as we continue to grow The Agency brand on the east coast.”


The New Canaan team comes with experienced leaders, who work together as partners in real estate: Todd David Miller and Cliff Smith. Todd enjoyed a successful 15-year career in public relations, entering the residential real estate industry in 2013. Known for his creative marketing strategies and deep knowledge of the market, he has sold more than $600 million in real estate.


"I am thrilled to be part of a brokerage that is leading the way in providing innovative marketing strategies for their agents," said Todd. "The Agency's marketing tools set the brokerage apart and was one of the biggest factors in joining forces. I look forward to implementing these strategies in Connecticut's real estate landscape."


Cliff has achieved groundbreaking sales success, including one of the highest-priced sales in New Canaan in the last five years and one of the highest-priced sales in the area in 2020. Preceding his time in residential real estate, he owned a sports agency where he represented professional basketball players in the NBA, WNBA, Europe and Asia.


"The Agency has redefined the business of real estate, modernizing and advancing the industry by fostering a culture of partnership in which all clients and listings are represented in a collaborative environment by all of its agents," said Cliff. “I am excited to begin building our office and surrounding ourselves with other top agents that embody these beliefs.”


The beautiful new office at 2 South Avenue will be designed by RowlanTides, a boutique residential interior design business located in Connecticut specializing in full-service interior design and virtual e-design. Follow the progress and the latest real estate happenings via @theagencynewcanaan
