Like every client and every real estate advisor, we too have a unique story. It's one steeped in iconic heritage that drives our resolve to change the way consumers experience the properties, neighborhoods and the overall process of buying and selling a home.
Our story began in Hamburg, Germany in 1977 with the founding of the privately owned Engel & Völkers franchise by Christian Völkers who remains at the head of our global operations. The world of Engel & Völkers was created and continues to grow around the mission to possess the highest levels of competency and client service. Through unrivaled brand consistency, sophisticated systems and innovations, we've done what no other European luxury real estate franchise has been able to do — successfully establish itself in the Americas.
