With over 15 years of real estate experience, Samuels will lead the boutique broker’s expansion into Northern California. In his previous position, he ran offices in northern cities such as Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Orinda and Burlingame. With the agency based in Los Angeles, the new role will include leading teams of agents and expanding their presence in the northern part of the state.

“The agency is committed to strategic growth and expansion in Northern California and beyond. We are excited to welcome top executives like Jeff Samuels to our mission,” said Rainy Hake Austin, agency president, in a press release. “Jeff is a well respected member of the real estate industry and will be a great resource for all of our Northern California agents and their clients. I am very excited to have Jeff on The Agency team. “

Samuels previously worked as a real estate agent at Better Homes Realty and earned a degree in mechanical engineering from UC Davis. Over the past year, the agency made a number of strategic hires to advance the company beyond its reputation as a small luxury agent in Los Angeles. Austin moved to The Agency from Compass in October 2020, while James Ramsay, executive vice president of franchise sales, joined in January this year.

The broker also opened offices in New Canaan, Connecticut and Oakville, Canada, as well as a new corporate office in Studio City, California.

“I have long admired what the agency has achieved to add seasoned professionals to their team around the world while maintaining the boutique feel and white-glove agent service,” said Samuels. “I look forward to working with Rainy Hake Austin and senior management to expand the agency’s footprint in Northern California.”
