A top residential agent in Marin County is switching teams after nearly four years at The Agency.

Tracy McLaughlin is joining German-based global real estate firm Engel & Völkers as a global real estate advisor. Along with the job switch, Tracy McLaughlin’s daughter Whitney McLaughlin has joined Engel & Völkers Aspen as a real estate advisor.

“Joining Engel & Völkers provides me with access to an expansive global network that will help me better serve my clients,” Tracy McLaughlin said in a statement. “Personally, I’m also thrilled to work with my daughter under one brand and see her flourish as a real estate professional in Aspen.”

A statement from Engel & Völkers calls McLaughlin “the number one agent in Marin County since 2005.” She has been ranked number 24 in sales nationwide, number eight in California by RealTrends + Tom Ferry’s The Thousand, and number 19 in the nation by transaction volume by Newsweek. In 2021, McLaughlin recorded approximately $416 million in sales volume.

While The Agency is losing McLaughlin, the brokerage has made moves to expand its Bay Area presence in recent months. The Agency opened an office in Silicon Valley and chose former Compass sales manager Quetzal Grimm to head the branch. The Agency brought on five former Compass agents to anchor the office. The firm also recently announced it brought in five more agents, bringing the headcount to 17 at the Los Gatos office.

At Engel & Völkers, McLaughlin will advise offices in about 270 locations with 6,000 real estate advisors in the United States, which contributes to the brand’s global network of more than 16,000 real estate professionals in more than 31 countries.
