As the Founder and CEO of The Agency, Kyle Richards' husband, real estate mogul Mauricio Umansky, has built an incredible team of realtors. To do so, he tapped his nearest and dearest.
On the Umansky team is Mauricio's step daughter Farrah Aldjufrie, daughter Alexia Umansky, as well as his father and his sister. Working so closely with relatives could be a recipe for disaster — for Mauricio, it's a formula for success. "It's incredible," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills husband exclusively told Bravo Insider. "Our offices are shared... [My daughters] sit right behind me... I get to watch the way they work and communicate. It's a dream."
Farrah, who has been with the Agency since its inception, "is just an absolute rock star," noted Mauricio. In October, the sold a $13.85M mansion to David Spade, for instance. Alexia is newer in her career, but she's already working on some big projects, including one that hits very close to home.
"Alexia just put our old house on the market for us and she's been in charge of it," Mauricio said of his and Kyle's 7-bedroom Bel-Air property. "She’s done an absolutely extraordinary job. It’s the first house that she kind of takes charge of on her own, and she’s just crushing it and I’m super proud."
On the flip side, getting to learn from the realtor selling the most homes in the country priced above $20M (aka dad) is an invaluable perk. "I give advice every single day, multiple times a day," said Mauricio. "My whole thing is not so much about like 'how do you prepare a house to sell better?' ... [It's] a little bit more about mindset. Just being ready for the battle on a daily basis. That kind of stuff."
He added: "My daughters love it. I've gotten a chance to mentor them and teach them, and now they're starting to teach me."
