Early Life and Background

Born in Mexico City, Umansky moved to Los Angeles with his family when he was just 14 years old. He grew up in LA and eventually got his start in real estate working for his father‘s company.

Even as a teenager, Umansky was business-minded and eager to be an entrepreneur. As he told Town & Country magazine, "I‘ve always wanted to make it on my own. I didn‘t want help from my dad."

He married Kyle Richards of Real Housewives fame in 1996. Together they have three daughters – Alexia, Sophia, and Portia. Family is very important to Umansky, who is extremely close with his mother Estella.

Founding The Agency and Major Deals

After years of working for LA luxury real estate firm Hilton & Hyland, Umansky struck out on his own in 2011 to launch The Agency. He brought several top agents with him from his old firm.

Within a few short years, The Agency was brokering jaw-dropping deals:

  • $165 million sale of Chartwell estate
  • $110 million sale of the Manor in Holmby Hills
  • $85 million sale of Danny Thomas‘ estate

The Agency now has over 700 agents worldwide and does over $800 million in sales every month. They‘ve expanded to markets like Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean.

As CEO, Umansky still personally represents celebrity clients and luxury estates. His clients have included Michael Jackson, Prince, and many more stars.

Reality TV Fame on RHOBH

Since 2010, Umansky has starred on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as the husband of cast member Kyle Richards. The exposure helped grow his personal brand and business.

Some of his most memorable RHOBH moments include:

  • Kyle throwing him an amazing garden party for his birthday
  • Taking exotic vacations with the cast to Dubai, Hong Kong, and more
  • Lighthearted spats with castmates like Camille Grammer

He now has over 600,000 Instagram followers and often shares glimpses into his glamorous life.

Lavish Lifestyle

With a net worth around $100 million, Umansky enjoys quite the A-List lifestyle. He and his family have an amazing mansion in Bel Air, along with a vacation home in Aspen.

Umansky loves traveling to destinations like Paris, Cabo, and Hawaii. He‘s a huge soccer fan and plays golf in his spare time. He also enjoys spending quality time with his wife and daughters.

While he splurges on luxury items, Umansky is still down-to-earth at heart. As Kyle told Bravo, "He would be just as happy with a taco as he would be having filet mignon."

Philanthropy and Causes

The Umansky family actively gives back through their own charity foundation and by supporting causes like:

  • Children‘s Hospital Los Angeles
  • Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • ASPCA
  • Theabethany House of Hope

Umansky also founded The Agency‘s own philanthropic movement called Agency to Change. They‘ve supported Habitat for Humanity home building projects, LGBTQ charities, and more.

What‘s Next for Mauricio Umansky

With The Agency continuing its rapid growth, Umansky has no plans of slowing down. They recently opened their first office in London and have their sights set on Paris next.

Between selling billion-dollar properties, appearing on RHOBH, and expanding his brokerage worldwide, Mauricio Umansky continues to be a major player in the elite real estate scene.
