Billy Rose

Founder and President

The Agency

Together with business partner, Mauricio Umansky, Billy Rose set out to redefine the real estate brokerage model and launched The Agency in 2011 - founded on the principles of sharing and collaboration. Rose has been representing high net-worth and celebrity clients for more than 30 years; first, as an entertainment and real estate lawyer, then as a motion picture-talent agent, and now as a broker. As a result, Rose understands what it takes to render quality representation with the utmost of confidentiality and professionalism.

The transition from lawyer/agent to realtor was natural for Rose in another way. By the time he obtained his broker’s license, Rose had already developed, designed and sold a number of “spec” homes. Hollywood is still attached to Rose. Several internationally renowned celebrities and high-level entertainment executives have all owned and/or currently live in homes created by Billy Rose Design & Development.
