Engel & Völkers began as a single real estate office providing a new level of service to discerning clients in Hamburg, Germany. Today, the firm’s founding commitment to quality, premium service and innovation is shared by over 550 real estate shops in 38 countries. Real estate buyers and sellers on five continents recognize the value offered by Engel & Völkers’ and drive the network’s ongoing expansion.
Sellers benefit on many levels. In key residential and resort markets around the world, the Engel & Völkers name is synonymous with quality and inspires trust. It provides ideal context for the properties that we represent.
All of our advisors have access to Engel & Völkers Real Estate Academies that train them in the effective use of proprietary systems and marketing tools. Training sessions also cover real estate best practices, promoting understanding and referrals across different business models and cultures. Our shared technology platform facilitates referral activity by providing all advisors seamless access to their Engel & Völkers colleagues around the world.
The external marketing materials we produce are in a class by themselves. Foremost among these is GG (Global Guide) Magazine, published in five languages, distributed globally and sold on newsstands in Europe.
We also offer sophisticated digital promotion including proprietary global, national and local websites, E&V Shop TV, the E&V InHouse news portal, and strategic online distribution relationships. Like most top local firms, we share our listings with the New York brokerage community through RPX Exchange. We reach local consumers through the NYTimes.com and Streeteasy.com among others. The properties we list also receive preferred placements on aggregators like Trulia and Zillow, and we’re one of the few Manhattan-based firms offering showcase placements on realtor.com.
Rounding out our integrated, multi-platform marketing approach are advertising opportunities in premier publications, direct mail programs and an email marketing system that provides detailed analytics.
Once selected and assembled into a marketing plan, these offerings elegantly present our listings to local and international purchasers under the Engel & Völkers banner.
As comprehensive and valuable as these benefits may be, they do not outweigh the importance of selecting the right agent to represent your property. Engel & Völkers NYC advisors take their jobs very seriously. They understand the significance of the decision to sell your home, and know that it can be more challenging in a market like ours.
In keeping with the Engel & Völkers mission and tradition, they will fully dedicate themselves to making the process efficient, successful and enjoyable.
