E is for Engel & Völkers by | 1st June, 2018 | Personalities
Engel & Völkers is one of the leading global providers of premium segment brokering services for residential and commercial real estate, as well as for yachting and aviation. Today, E&V has a presence in more than 800 locations and over 30 countries on four continents.
The Engel & Völkers story began in Hamburg in 1977. Today, the company has a presence around the globe. This success is founded on a strong brand with a high recognition factor. Since the introduction of its franchising system in 1998, the company has grown continuously and its expansion has focused on Europe and North America. More than 10,000 people are now part of the global E&V network. All of them are trained in the company’s very own academy that imbues them with an in-depth knowledge of real estate and how to market it. This year’s move into the new E&V headquarters in Hamburg’s HafenCity area is an important milestone in the company’s history. The building was designed by world-famous architect Richard Meier and boasts a huge amount of natural light. It represents the fulfillment of company founder and CEO Christian Völkers’ dream of a dedicated, Engel & Völkers-branded building.
