A Luxury Real-Estate brokerage and Lifestyle Company
[Note from editor: The “Mastermind Showcase” highlights companies and news from members of the GEM. Today’s showcase: The Agency.]
The Agency is an LA based real estate brokerage specializing in luxury residential, new development, and resort listings nationwide. In 10 years of business, the independent brokerage has closed more than $9 billion worth of transactions. Recent company growth includes two franchise office debuts in Oakville, Ontario and New Canaan, Connecticut; a new corporate branch in Studio City, California; and a pair of high-profile executive hires.
Its in-house creative agency, The Agency Creates, focuses on branding, marketing, and PR for high-end real estate listings, as well as working with clients in fashion, tech, and hospitality.
Leaders of The Agency are the same minds behind ThePLS.com, re-launched earlier this year as a public-facing site, which allows both agents and members to search existing pocket listings up to 24 hours before they’re submitted to the MLS.
What we like: An independent thought leader from one of the country’s largest markets (LA), The Agency has built a solid foundation from which they can expand upon. Plus, few brokerages have the star power to match that of CEO & Founder Mauricio Umansky,
