THE POWER OF COLLABORATION

Being a part of their boutique brokerage means benefiting from the strength of the whole. It means coming together with fellow real estate professionals who are constantly rethinking industry norms and pushing themselves further through technology, design and service. They share information, from off-market listings to pre-launch property details. The Agency’s proprietary technology helps foster collaboration, allowing their agents to instantly reach their entire network within moments. Behind each agent at The Agency is the expertise and knowledge of the entire team.

 

FOUNDER’S STORY

When Mauricio Umansky and Billy Rose founded The Agency in 2011, they set out to do things differently. They formed a new kind of brokerage: One that fostered a culture of collaboration in which all agents benefit from one another’s expertise, knowledge and sphere of influence to ensure their clients received better representation.

As The Agency grew, so did their aspirations for what a brokerage could become. They opened new offices, reached new markets, modernized their industry and established a global presence. They have accomplished what they set out to achieve without sacrificing the close-knit boutique feel that has defined them from the beginning. It’s “The Agency way”. Tracy is very proud to be leading their Marin County offices.
