""Does my non-solicit agreement with my original employer transfer to the new agency?""
.

Yes, if the agency was sold including all assets and obligations, which is typical, then the new agency would just "step into the shoes" of the old one and any contracts would be deemed to be assigned to the new agency. So any contracts that were signed with the old agency would now be enforceable by the new agency, be they service contracts, customer contracts, or employee contracts.
