The Agency’s partnership with Triplemint is just the beginning of change for real estate in Hoboken. Triplemint has been known in town for being a top real estate agency, located in NYC and in Hoboken at 331 Washington Street. The Agency, founded by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (and Kyle Richards’ husband) Mauricio Umansky, is a worldwide luxury real estate brokerage and lifestyle company. Read on to learn more about The Agency X Triplemint.
About the Takeover
News of The Agency taking over Triplemint, which was founded in 2013 by David Walker and Philip Lang, was officially announced on May 3rd.

Background on The Agency
While most Hobokenites might be familiar with Triplemint (being that offices are in Hoboken and NYC), some might not know much about The Agency (unless you’re in the industry… or you are a big Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan!). The Agency was founded in September 2011 by Mauricio and agents Billy Rose and Blair Chang.
The Agency has listings all over the world, including listings in Central America, South America, Europe, Mexico, Turks and Caicos, and Canada. The company employs more than 650 agents and has more than 42 offices.
Mauricio brought attention to The Agency while on RHOBH. His wife, Kyle Richards, has been a cast member on the show since the show’s first season in October 2010. (Season 12 just premiered on May 11th and airs every Wednesday at 8 / 7c on Bravo.) Together, they have three daughters, Portia, Alexia, and Sophia. Mauricio is also father to stepdaughter Farrah Aldjufrie, who is also an agent with The Agency.

According to The Agency’s website, Mauricio has brought in nearly $ 4 billion in real estate sales. He even represented the Playboy Mansion, which sold for $ 100M in 2016, becoming the most expensive home ever sold in Los Angeles.

More to Come
From what we know, Mauricio has yet to make a stop in Hoboken’s Triplemint offices. However, we’re hoping the CEO of The Agency makes his way to the area soon!
He said in a statement about the partnership, “The Agency is focused on continued global expansion… We intend to offer the 2.0 version of luxury real estate as we seek to provide a seamless, integrated experience for our agents, helping them to become better advisors and elevating their ability to provide a high-touch and high-tech experience for clients in a way that has yet to be seen in our industry. The $ 35-million raise [in growth capital] coupled with the acquisition of Triplemint positions us perfectly for this new chapter. ”
