Your Mama Hears...

...from trusted tattletale Babbling Babette that several well-known heavy hitters in the Los Angeles real estate world have officially broken their long-time professional affiliations and formed their own boutique property brokerage called The Agency.

Your Mama hears the founding brokers of The Agency include but may not be limited to Mauricio Umansky, formerly of Hilton & Hyland, and the dynamic duo of Billy Rose and Blair Chang from Prudential California's Beverly Hills Office.

While no real estate brokerage likes to lose a money making agent, Mister Umansky's exit from Hilton & Hyland seems potentially problematic given that he's married to Kyle Richards, star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and sister of Hilton & Hyland co-owner Rick Hilton's wife Kathy.

Misters Umansky, Rose and Chang all do considerable business with numerous showbiz celebrities as well as a slew of other wealthy movers and shakers in Los Angeles.

I'm guessing the Hilton family didn't consult with the Umansky's before Kyle decided to join the other tacky bitches on reality TV. I would think if anything is problematic, its the way certain Hiltons have degraded the family name (not that their ho-hum hotels don't do a swell job of that alone) Its a smart move to be freed from old school notions of real estate and begin anew. And if Rose & Chang are on board, I'm sure it'll be a huge succcess.

Sorry Mama, but Kyle Richards is not a Hilton, she is a Richards, she may go by Kyle Richards-Umansky, but she was never and will never be a Hilton, she is only related to the Hiltons by marriage, and to hippie canyon who asked if the Hiltons consulted with the Umanskys about Kyle joining the 'Housewives' reality show, I think the Umanskys were fine with it because Mauricio Umansky and his mom have both appeared on the show and Mauricio is pretty much one of the main characters, I don't believe any Hilton has appeared on the show so far, Kyle's sister Kim is on the show but she is a Richards, not a Hilton

Mauricio is an excellent and very professional agent as well as a human being.

If I was ever buying a high end home in L.A. he would be my first choice as an agent.

I was extremely impressed by how he handled himself with the whole Camille Grammer incident.

I wish him the best of luck.

its definitely true. I follow mauricio on twitter and someone messaged him asking for his # as he was interested in purchasing a house and mauricio was like just dm me cause im getting a new email and phone number.i never got the feeling that kathy and kyle got along that well anyways.

Kyle always seems a tad bit afraid of Kathy. But it's time for Mauricio to spread his wings. He has the experience he needs so I say go for it.

there was a "Blind Item" a few days on gossip sites:

"Which Real Housewives Beverly Hills couple, despite giving off the appearance of being the most in love actually have the most marital issues and none of it began until the show did, which is ironic considering…. Half the time the couple does not even sleep in the same bed together."

most posters answered "Kyle Richard & Mauricio Umansky"
this could explain that...

I was wondering why I could not find Mauricio's contact details on the H&H site. He is surely one of the mots professional and charismatic agents in Los Angeles, I wish him all the best with this.

Anon 4:45 I would have guessed Adrienne and her Surgeon hubby. They may not appear to be the most loving but they definately appear to be at each others throats. The Maloof family has basically lost most of its wealth..they barely have any interest in the Palms now. I think the pressure will be turned up on the marriage. For as good as a Bev Hills plastic surgeon gets paid, he aint the one affording that lifestyle I can assure you. And when that lifestyle goes away we shall see what happens. I actually like Adrienne out of all of them. She has a head on her shoulders. Hubby not so much..

Adrienne seems like a really good person and not a snob. Not sure about the British lady. The rest of them are pure wackos.

I watched the 1st season, but will stay away from the 2nd. The 1st season was fun with the trips to local restaurants, Las Vegas, etc. The 2nd season premiere left me sad and a little depressed. A suicide,the bickering, rude behavior, and the endless parade of gaudy shoes with red soles is not good entertainment.

hilton/hyland got too many agents. umansky alone would do ok. plus he's hot as f*&k

AnjAli7 said...

He is far too good looking for Kyle Richards. I am assuming his is fully aware of this considering dlisted's recent "blind item" on the demise of their marriage.

Adrienne treats her husband so poorly that I just cringe watching them. I really dont know how he stands it. He should man up.
