Engel & Völkers is a global leader in the sale and leasing of premium residential property, commercial real estate, aviation and yachts. Founded in Hamburg, Germany in 1977 as a specialty boutique agency providing high-end real estate services to influential European investors, Engel & Völkers now operates 800 shops with over 10,000 Advisors in 39 countries.
Expanding our brand to a range of luxury categories, including yachting, aviation, capital, resorts and developments, and the launch of our polo school enable us as a company to reach a broader audience of affluent real estate clients.
The key to Engel & Völkers’ international success has always been to open and operate in markets where we know our clients want to be – the most desirable locations in the world. We’ve also established our shop concept as a successful part of this strategy, maintaining our consistent brand design globally so that we are easily recognizable and trusted by our international real estate clients. We designate our agents as “Advisors,” to better define the higher level of service they provide.
Still privately owned and operated by our founder and co-CEO Christian Völkers, the Engel & Völkers story is truly unique and reflects the vision and mission of a singular leader, with a focus on unparalleled service and passion for real estate. The newest office, Engel & Völkers Atlanta, launched in 2017 with a 5,000 square foot flagship at Peachtree and 25th Streets.
