The New Location Becomes the Brokerage's Second Office in Idaho and 83rd Location Worldwide
LOS ANGELES, May 31, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Global real estate brokerage The Agency proudly announces the launch of its first franchise office in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The new locale, which will be known as The Agency Coeur d'Alene, is the firm's second office in the state of Idaho, joining the brokerage's growing network of more than 80 offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe. The Coeur d'Alene office will be led by industry veterans and Managing Partners Greg Link and Bobby Carmody. The Agency currently has an office in Boise, Idaho.
"We're pleased to expand our presence in Idaho with the launch of our office in Coeur d'Alene," said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. "Greg Link and Bobby Carmody are two highly accomplished real estate agents in the area, and we're thrilled to welcome them to The Agency family, knowing they will be incredible stewards of our brand and culture."
The Agency has rapidly expanded its presence across the globe throughout the past year, making it one of the fastest-growing luxury boutique brokerages in the world. The Agency's independently-owned brokerages are referred to and integrated as true global partners. Every Managing Partner, from both corporate or independently-owned offices, operates cohesively as one true global network. Rather than simply using brand likeness in their marketing, The Agency's global partners enjoy the same access to leadership, marketing, public relations, training, tools, and technology as our corporate offices. In Q1 of 2023 alone, The Agency launched eight new offices, with more on the horizon in the coming months.
"Our brand-new office in Coeur d'Alene is an exciting next chapter for The Agency as our brand continues to expand throughout the Pacific Northwest," said Jim Ramsay, Executive Vice President of Franchise Sales at The Agency. "The Coeur d'Alene real estate market holds great synergy with The Agency's groundbreaking offerings, and we look forward to showcasing the power of our brand to buyers and sellers in the area."
Ever the entrepreneur, Greg Link joins The Agency Coeur d'Alene as Managing Partner, bringing 15 years of industry experience and a lifetime of local knowledge to assist clients throughout northern Idaho. Having helped more than 1,200 families buy and sell real estate, Greg has solidified his reputation as an expert negotiator with the highest integrity and specialized insight into the residential market. His laidback and fun-loving approach has attracted some of the area's top-tier talent to The Agency while also ensuring transactions are both stress-free and rewarding for clients. Greg spent his early childhood in Idaho and adolescence in New York. He moved back to Coeur d'Alene after high school and focused on building his family and small business. As the founder and CEO of a construction clean-up and janitorial company, Greg learned the ins and outs of operating a business, from managing people to tough yet fair contract negotiations. As he gained more exposure to the real estate industry through his wife, who worked for a small local brokerage founded by his grandmother, he felt inspired to make a career shift. In his first years as an agent, Greg became an expert in short sales and foreclosures. With his thirst for knowledge and deep-rooted community ties, he strategically and sustainably scaled his business to incorporate luxury homes and investment properties. So much of his success stems from the fact that he does not see himself as a salesman, but rather an advocate for his clients. When Greg isn't at work, he enjoys spending time with his family, including his wife, who owns several boutiques in town, their kids and their first grandchild. Greg lives for Coeur d'Alene summers, when he can make the most of the lake, and is a supporter of his local church.
"I am thrilled to be working alongside Bobby Carmody as we bring The Agency's fresh perspective to our local real estate market," said Greg Link. "I couldn't be more honored to bring the world-class experience and white glove service of The Agency to Coeur d'Alene as we continue to serve the northern Idaho region."
