Mauricio Umansky, who’s featured prominently on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” as the husband of Kyle Richards, has expanded his luxury real estate brokerage to Coral Gables. 

The Agency has 16 agents in the City Beautiful working out of coworking space at Pipeline Coral Gables, Umansky said. He plans to seek an office suite as the team continues to grow.

“We found some really great people that we like, and it’s our gateway to beginning an East Coast expansion,” Umansky said. “We are seeing a lot of our clients want to come to Florida.”

Beverly Hills-based The Agency has 500 agents in 30 offices. Umansky has brokered homes owned by Michael JacksonMichael Jordan and Prince.

Its first East Coast location was in Boca Raton, which opened in 2018 and now has 40 agents, Umansky said. In addition to its base in California, the brokerage has an office in Mexico, where demand for Miami property is strong, he said.

The Agency works with both new homes and resales at luxury price points. Its first developer client in Coral Gables is the recently completed Merrick Manor condominium.

“Merrick Manor is in an amazing location,” Umansky said. “We really like the product. The way it was delivered is beautiful.”

Umansky said his recruitment of brokers to The Agency will focus on high productivity, not hiring as many brokers as possible. The Agency has developed technology to help brokers collect data on market trends, anticipate customer behavior and improve their marketing. This technology platform includes artificial intelligence, he added.

The Agency won’t stop at Coral Gables. Umansky is looking for more brokers in Miami Beach and Aventura.
