For the past twelve years, his wife’s social circle has played out on screen thanks to her role on reality series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now international property mogul Mauricio Umansky is taking centre stage in the harbour city – step aside Gavin Rubinstein!
Fresh off a superyacht in Portofino, Italy, the founder and CEO of international brokerage firm The Agency has landed in Sydney ahead of his speaking engagements for the Crown Group on Monday night.
The father-of-three has sold upwards of $4 billion in property and represented some of the world’s most noteworthy properties and owners including the Walt Disney estate, Michael Jackson, Michael Jordan and Prince. Guests attending the intimate evening include business figures, media and influencers, who will hear Umansky explore his key tips for selling property, and secrets to his success.
Filming is understood to have recently wrapped for his coming Netflix series, Buying Beverly Hills. A reality series, much like local series Luxe Listing, will follow Umansky, agents and clients within The Agency as they navigate the high-stakes world of luxury real estate in Los Angeles. The series will star agents Santiago Arana, Ben Belack, Joey Ben-Zvi, Jon Grauman, Brandon Graves, Allie Lutz Rosenberger, Melissa Platt and Sonika Vaid as well as step-daughter Farrah Aldjufrie and daughter Alexia Umansky.
Sources close to Umansky have remained tight-lipped surrounding his trip Down Under. However, Emerald City understands he will be travelling without his famous wife Kyle Richards. The reality couple tied the knot in January 1996. Prior to launching The Agency, Umansky was a real estate agent for his brother-in-law, hotel heir, Rick Hilton’s company Hilton and Hyland.
Hotshot realtor ties the knot in Turkey
Eastern suburbs realtor Maclay Longhurst and his long-term girlfriend Jessie Davis have tied the knot in a chic European summer wedding. Last week the couple said ‘I do’ in front of their closest friends who travelled from Sydney to the exclusive Macakizi hotel in Bodrum, Turkey.
Ivan Bresic, cofounder of real estate agency BresicWhitney and Longhurst’s longtime boss and mentor, was the celebrant at the couple’s ceremony.
