How to Succeed in Business & Life Through Dedication, Determination & Disruption

By Mauricio Umansky

Mauricio Umansky, real estate mogul, longtime fan favourite of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and star of his own upcoming Netflix series Buying Beverly Hills, inspire budding entrepreneurs and self-starters of all backgrounds with tips and strategies to find success at work and home.

After more than twenty years in the cutthroat real estate business, Mauricio Umansky has seen and heard it all. Now, he’s ready to share everything he’s learned throughout the highs and lows of his illustrious career in this part memoir, part leadership manifesto.

From his childhood challenges to outgrowing his father’s textile company and falling out with his brother-in-law Rick Hilton. While also raising a family and maintaining a solid marriage for over twenty-six years. Umansky has plenty of advice and lessons for aspiring entrepreneurs and self-starters across all industries. By outlining his fundamental success principles, Umansky will encourage those ready to work hard and be prepared to meet adversity head-on, which requires endless stamina, grit, and determination.

Each chapter will centre around a specific piece of wisdom and offer insightful takeaways. For example, how to Play Hard and Work Harder, How to Find Your Professional and Personal Passions, How to be an Innovator, Not an Imitator, The Art of the Sell, The Benefits of Remaining Positive, How to Achieve Balance, and so much more!

Mindset is critical to me. So far, this book has provided me with a road map to overcoming mental roadblocks and tapping into the gifts already inside you. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to push past boundaries and exceed far beyond whatever they set their minds to.

Umansky’s journey has been anything but boring. On the contrary, it’s been unpredictable, exhilarating, and emotionally and physically demanding. In The Real Deal, he imparts his hard-earned knowledge, along with strategies he’s taught himself, to anyone and everyone looking to build a fruitful career and find the happiness we all seek in life. Welcome to his exclusive and exciting world.

Mauricio and The Agency also represent some of the world’s top developers and resort brands, including One&Only, Six Senses and Ritz-Carlton. In addition, Mauricio is a proud member of The Young Presidents Organization (YPO), an influential and world-renowned business networking organization. His philanthropic work includes serving as a board member for Giveback Homes, an organization dedicated to building homes for needy families, The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the National Breast Cancer Association.
