Engel & Völkers Atlanta, a leading luxury residential real estate brokerage firm in Atlanta, announced today the acquisition of Engel & Völkers North Atlanta, Engel & Völkers Intown Atlanta and Engel & Völkers Brookhaven, creating a consolidated stronghold which will operate solely under the Engel & Völkers Atlanta renowned brand.
“Since our inception, we’ve been committed to excelling beyond our wildest imaginations to serve an elite pool of buyers, sellers and developers and establish our position as Atlanta’s premier residential brokerage,” said Christa Huffstickler, founder and CEO of Engel & Völkers Atlanta. “With the addition of three firms associated with our band of international powerhouses, we are thrilled to continue pushing the envelope with a fine-tuned team of experts who will elevate our suite of offerings. As we enter 2020 even bigger and better than before, we are ready to double down on dominating the industry.”
The merger will bring prominent markets such as Virginia Highland, Decatur, East Atlanta and Morningside under the firm’s management. With the new agreement, Engel & Völkers North Atlanta and Engel & Völkers Brookhaven will now be based at the firm’s south Buckhead location, while the former Engel & Völkers Intown Atlanta will remain in its current space in Morningside, sporting new Engel & Volkers Atlanta insignia. To accommodate the expanded fleet of incoming agents, the firm’s office will undergo an extensive renovation. Scott Askew, formerly of Engel & Völkers Intown Atlanta and Engel & Völkers Brookhaven, will join Engel & Volkers Atlanta as the qualifying broker.
Known for his keen interest in community development, Scott Askew will bring a new layer of philanthropic efforts to the firm, spearheading Engel & Völkers Atlanta’s involvement in several initiatives across Atlanta.
“Engel & Völkers Atlanta has a demonstrated history of taking charge in an often unwieldy market, and we are excited to consolidate operations guided by Christa Huffstickler’s smart leadership to best leverage our local market penetration, while adopting the latest marketing tools to better serve our clients,” said Askew. “We also look forward to implementing a strong
sense of community involvement that will highlight our team-based environment and position Engel & Volkers Atlanta as a service-oriented company.”
In 2019, Engel & Völkers had over $600 million in sales volume across its Atlanta Metro portfolio, a 20% increase from 2018, gained a number of substantial properties and continued to build out its thriving developer services division. Notable highlights from the Engel & Völkers Atlanta office this year include the record-breaking $3.95 million sale of a 4,863-square-foot unit at The Residences at Waldorf Astoria Atlanta in Buckhead, marking the highest new construction condominium sale since 2017, and the launch of sales at 40 West 12th, a luxury condominium development in the heart of Midtown by Selig Enterprises.
