By the Engel & Völkers Team
This year our global brand is celebrating 40 years of Engel & Völkers. Our story began in Hamburg, Germany in 1977 with the founding of the privately owned Engel & Völkers franchise by Christian Völkers who is still the global CEO of our brand. While we are proud to draw upon the rich history of our European roots, our market-leading network of real estate shops and advisors works to shape a vision that is true, yet refreshing, in the Americas today.
Since 2014, Engel & Völkers’ acute focus shifted to the Americas to deliver a fresh approach to luxury real estate service by creating a white-glove client experience at every stage of the home buying or selling process, helping today’s savvy consumer claim their own piece of luxury. To carry out this vision, we live by four cornerstones that make up each and every part of our brand identity: the enjoyment of the best in life, handcrafted attention to detail, an ethos of leadership and our global presence and reach.
In the many years to come, to bring Engel & Völkers into the future of real estate in the Americas, we know there’s more to it than just houses to own and listings to sell. Our story and our iconic heritage link every continent, country and cul-de-sac, and Engel & Völkers shops and advisors are resolved to change the way consumers experience luxury service in the real estate industry. You can bet there’s more to our story.
Whether you are a real estate professional or looking to buy or sell your home, let us help you open the door to the life you aspire.
