Chernov Team moves to The Agency from Keller Williams

The Chernov Team was previously with Keller Williams Studio City.

It’s the beginning of a new year and agent, team and brokerage movement is fast and furious. The latest to move is the Chernov Team, which joined  The Agency’s Sherman Oaks location. Led by Founder Dennis Chernov and his wife, Yana Chernov, head of operations and marketing, according to a press release, the team has achieved more than $3 billion in sales volume throughout the team’s 12 years in the luxury real estate industry.

The Chernov Team, which moved from a Keller Williams Studio City office, will continue to serve clients throughout the San Fernando Valley, specializing in Encino, Hidden Hills, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, and Toluca Lake, California. 

“We’re thrilled to welcome the Chernov Team to The Agency family, further adding to our robust team of agents servicing The Valley,” said Mauricio Umansky, CEO and Founder of The Agency. “The Chernov Team’s sales success and accomplishments are truly remarkable and we’re looking forward to working together to continue to solidify The Agency’s standing as The Valley’s leading source for buying and selling in the area,” added Rainy Hake Austin, president of The Agency. 

Dennis Chernov began his journey in real estate through the operation of his own property loan business in the early 2000s—building a foundation in the transactional processes necessary to buy and sell a property and developing a keen aptitude to qualify potential buyers quickly. In 2009, Dennis joined Keller Williams Studio City full-time and with nearly two decades of experience in the field, Dennis has consistently ranked as a top-producing real estate agent in Los Angeles county year after year.

Dennis’s core values are simple: lead the team by example, deliver consistent, transparent, and timely communication to our clients, meet all contract dates and deadlines, and focus on fostering relationships with top talent and vendors in the local market. Raised in Los Angeles, Dennis was born in Uzbekistan, a state of the former Soviet Union, and is a native Russian speaker. 

“The Agency’s positioning within the luxury real estate industry, coupled with its cutting edge marketing and technology offerings hold great synergy with our own business philosophy and vision for the future of our industry,” said Dennis Chernov. “We’re thrilled to partner with the brokerage on this new venture and continue to offer our clients an elevated, world-class level of service rooted in integrity and vitality across all areas of our business and operations.”
