The Agency

Billy Rose
Founder and President of The Agency, Billy Rose, has been the recipient of numerous accolades, including being chosen as a finalist for the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards in 2017 and selected (on multiple occasions) by Variety and The Hollywood Reporter for their Top Real Estate Agent lists. Under his leadership, The Agency has been named among Inc. 5000’s list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country for two consecutive years.

In September 2011, Billy founded The Agency upon the underlying principle that the brokerage was to operate as an undivided, integrated organization. As President of The Agency, Billy oversees not only the general (resale) practice of the company, but also the organization’s prodigious, global New Development division and The Agency Creates, a stand-alone creative agency providing design, PR, branding, social media, advertising, web design and digital marketing services for more than $4 Billion in luxury real estate, resort, development and luxury lifestyle brands.

An expert in architecture and design, Billy has served as a judge for the American Institute of Architects Residential Design Awards. He is a frequent guest speaker, panellist and commentator on all things “real estate,” having been featured in such outlets as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Forbes, Financial Times, and CNN.

Is Cash Still King When It Comes to Luxury Real Estate?

“In Los Angeles, the all-cash transaction is influenced by more factors than in other cities. You have a high percentage of wealthy people and a high percentage of parents buying for their children. There’s also a high percentage of tech money, so we end up having more all-cash transactions than in other cities,” says Billy Rose, cofounder of The Agency, which has 17 offices and locations in Palm Desert, Malibu, Beverly Hills, and Los Cabos.
