New Netflix show features The Agency realtors

By Lisa Brody

We all want to get a voyeuristic glimpse of how the rich and famous live. The new Netflix show, Buying Beverly Hills, is a chance to view how realtor Mauricio Umansky, owner of The Agency, his daughters and realtors working with him, wheel and deal in the world of Los Angeles real estate.

Umansky recently joined forces with the Birmingham boutique real estate firm Hall & Hunter, now known as The Agency Hall & Hunter. It continues to be led locally by managing partners Brad and Ryan Wolf. Hall & Hunter Realtors was founded in 1954 and in 1982, Dennis Wolf, Brad and Ryan’s father, acquired the company and its 10 agents and set out to create Michigan’s premier, locally-owned and operated real estate business. Hall & Hunter has grown into a firm with more than 90 experienced real estate professionals

A preview of the first episode of the show was held at a cocktail reception on Thursday, November 3, at The Emagine Palladium, before Netflix premiers the show on Friday, November 4. The series will have eight episodes.

According to Netflix,“Buying Beverly Hills is a new real estate occu-soap following the agents and clients within Mauricio Umansky’s The Agency in Beverly Hills, California. Mauricio, his daughters Farrah and Alexia, and the talented group of agents highlight the high stakes world of luxury real estate in Los Angeles,” and it continues, “When the boss’s daughter joins the family business, she struggles to be taken seriously by The Agency’s more seasoned agents.”

On top of all the professional and social pressures, there seems to be some romantic tension in the air too. Just like the listings in Buying Beverly Hills, “the gossip is going to be very hot,” Netflix proclaims.

In the trailer, Umansky advises, “The more successful you are, the more they’ll talk sh*t about you.”
