A Beverly Hills, California-based global real estate brokerage firm with a large presence on reality television has opened a new franchise office in Dallas, its second Texas location.
The new office, called The Agency at 8117 Preston Road, Suite 725, is part of a growing network of more than 70 offices across the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe. The Dallas office is led by managing partners Damon and Megan Williamson.
The agency can be seen on international television shows including Million Dollar Listing Los AngelesThe Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsand Buy Beverly Hillswhich debuted on Netflix in November.
“We are excited to expand our presence in Texas with the launch of our new franchise in Dallas,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and founder of The Agency, in a statement. “Damon and Megan Williamson are two of the most celebrated real estate professionals in their areas, and we’re confident they will be incredible stewards of our brand and culture.”
Rapid growth of a global network
The agency also has an office in Austin and said it has rapidly expanded its presence around the world over the past year, making it one of the fastest growing luxury boutique brokerage firms in the world. It said its independent brokerage houses will be identified and integrated as true global partners.
“We are excited to be working with Damon and Megan Williamson to bring The Agency to Dallas and new thriving cities around the world,” said Jim Ramsay, executive vice president of franchise sales at The Agency, in a statement. “Our continued growth in Texas is a true testament to the growing demand and need for a luxury boutique brokerage firm with a global reach like The Agency.”
The company said that each managing partner, in both corporate and independent offices, acts coherently as a global network.
Rather than just using brand likeness in its marketing, The Agency said its global partners enjoy the same access to leadership, marketing, public relations, training, tools and technology as corporate offices. In the past 12 months, The Agency has opened 26 new corporate and independently owned offices, including the new Dallas office.
More openings are planned, The Agency said.
