Reality star agent Mauricio Umansky is taking The Agency to the Tar Heel State.

Umansky’s brokerage opened its first North Carolina office in Charlotte, with local agent Erika Mendoza and Abigail Hines Miller joining as managing partners, according to a press release. The opening marks the firm’s 85th office. 

Mendoza and Hines Miller both joined The Agency from Ivester Jackson Christie’s International Real Estate, a brokerage also based in Charlotte. Mendoza comes with a reality television pedigree –– she hosts the American Dream TVs “Selling Charlotte,” a show about the southern city’s luxury real estate market.

The Agency is known for its Los Angeles reality roots. Founder and agent Umansky’s wife is “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Kyle Richards, and he makes regular appearances on the show. Umansky has also appeared on “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles” and launched “Buying Beverly Hills” starring himself and brokers from The Agency on Netflix in November.

While Umansky and the Agency have been claiming their place in the reality television spotlight, the brokerage has also been expanding across the country. In January, the Agency opened an office in Palm Beach Gardens, marking its return to Palm Beach County after shuttering the Boca Raton shop it opened in 2018. In May last year, the brokerage acquired New York City-based Triplemint, cementing its spot in the Big Apple. Not long after, Triplemint founder Tyler Whiteman pitched Umansky on a Hamptons –– and they opened there earlier this month.
