Buying Beverly Hills is the latest addition to Netflix’s catalog of real estate reality TV shows that include Selling Sunset and Selling the OC. Fans on Netflix are excited to know what drama might unfold in the upcoming series. Before that, you might want to learn a little about the cast and their wealth.
1. Mauricio Umansky – $100 Million
The name might sound familiar because Mauricio Umansky is the husband of RHOBH star Kyle Richards. He is also the owner of The Agency, the brokerage featured on the show.
Mauricio dropped out of college to become a businessman. His first venture was a clothing line called 90265 that he sold when he turned 26 years old. He used the money to fund his real estate journey.
Since selling his first home for $7.5 million he hasn’t looked back and is now a household name. Umansky set up The Agency in 2011 and serves as the CEO. The brokerage has 1,500 agents in six countries. Umansky’s net worth is in the $100 million range.
2. Santiago Arana – $8 Million
Bolivian Santiago Arana is the principal and managing partner of The Agency. He has a compelling rags-to-riches story, and is one of the top realtors in the United States.
Arana left his homeland when it was in a state of unrest. He relocated to America and worked as a busboy for a restaurant. After climbing the corporate ladder, he was convinced to give real estate a shot.
Unlike Mauricio, he got off to a slow start. However, Santiago was persistent and eventually found himself working with celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Lebron James. Today, Arana is worth an estimated $8 million.
3. Jon Grauman – $6 Million
Jon Grauman is the head of The Agency’s estates division. He doesn’t just focus on high-end listings, he also sells properties worth around a million dollars. Currently, his top listing is on the market for $139 million!
His role suits him perfectly as Jon has lived in LA his entire life. Before becoming a real estate agent, he was a developer and mortgage broker who learned every aspect of the business.
2019 was his best year as he sold over $230 million worth of real estate. These figures really put him on the map. Thanks to some big real estate commissions, Grauman is worth $6 million.
4. Farrah Brittany – $5 Million
Farrah Brittany is another familiar face to reality TV fans and she is Kyle Richards‘ daughter from her first marriage. In The Agency, Farrah is a star of her own, being credited as a founder and agent.
As the company’s first Director of Client Relations, Farrah has been a part of Mauricio’s team since 2011. She excelled in representing buyers and sellers of deals of different sizes.
Brittany is no stranger to the spotlight, and it is expected that she will further stand out in Buying Beverly Hills. The show might even help her improve her $5 million net worth.
5. Ben Belack – $5 Million
Ben Belack is the head of the brokerage’s residential estates department. He also runs a website that serves as a comprehensive research guide for anyone looking to buy a home in Beverly Hills.
Prior to real estate, Belack was a sommelier at various Michelin star restaurants. There were similarities between the nature of his old job and the property business, so he made a career change.
After a decade in the industry, he is now a top-rated agent in the LA area. He has participated in half a billion dollars worth of transactions and his personal fortune is around $5 million.
6. Alexia Umansky – $2 Million
Alexia Umansky is one of the three daughters of Mauricio Umansky and Kyle Richards. She decided to follow in the steps of her father by joining the Umansky Team.
Before joining the crew, she was an assistant to some of The Agency’s top brokers. When she officially became an agent, Alexia was considered a marketing specialist. Unlike her half-sister, Farrah, Alexia is not used to being on camera. It was challenging for her to be on camera but Alexia’s wealth is valued at $2 million.
7. Allie Lutz Rosenberger – $1 Million
Allie Lutz Rosenberger is the daughter of doubles tennis legend Bob Lutz and is among the best high-end realtors on the list. She is a philanthropist and a managing partner of The Agency.

8. Melissa Platt – $750,000
Farrah Britanny’s best friend and confidant is none other than Melissa Platt. She is acknowledged as a valuable figure in Buying Beverly Hills because of her close ties with the Umansky family.

9. Joey Ben-Zvi – $750,000
Alexia’s childhood friend, Joey Ben-Zvi, is also on the show as a rookie agent. He was mentored by the Umansky Team personally, so people are expecting big things from the newbie.

10. Brandon Graves – $500,000

11. Sonika Vaid – $500,000
