Global real estate brokerage The Agency proudly announces the launch of its first franchise office in Indianapolis, Indiana. The new locale, which will be known as The Agency Indianapolis, is the firm’s first office in the state of Indiana, and second in the Midwest following Birmingham, Michigan, which opened in 2022. The Indianapolis office joins the brokerage’s growing network of more than 80 offices in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Europe and will be led by industry veteran and Managing Partner Traci Garontakos. Traci and her team will service the greater Indianapolis region with a focus on the city’s thriving suburbs of Zionsville, Carmel, Westfield, Noblesville, and Fishers.

The Agency’s independently-owned brokerages are referred to and integrated as true global partners.

In Q1 of 2023 alone, The Agency launched eight new offices, with more on the horizon in the coming months.

With solid infrastructure, The Agency has a renowned brand that is featured on international television shows including “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles,” “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” and “Buying Beverly Hills,” which debuted on Netflix on November 4, 2022 and just announced its second season.

Tribe Property Technologies | March 10, 2023
On March 09, 2023, Tribe Property Technologies Inc. announced a deployment of VendorPM nationwide to support Canada's Tribe-managed communities. Property managers at Tribe-managed communities will benefit from a streamlined request for proposal (RFQ) process because of the Tribe's partnership with VendorPM, allowing them to connect easily with more than 30,000 service providers.
A proprietary platform integration was also launched by Tribe recently that streamlines the mandatory Tarion new home warranty process that is specific to the Province of Ontario. The new partnership, available for real estate developers through the Company's Tribe Home Pro digital solutions, brings the ability and automation for developers to track issues from any stage of development, from a single dashboard to generate custom reports, and simply review all in-unit warranty issues and their resolution status. It further results in faster and more efficient turnarounds for homeowners.
