The Engel & Völkers Story

Engel & Völkers is one of Europe’s most recognized real estate brands. We specialize in the sale and leasing of residential property. We are also a trusted source of real estate market news and trends on a global scale.

Wherever an Engel & Völkers office has opened, whether in Europe, Africa, Asia, the United States, or Canada, the worldwide recognition of our brand follows. For the homes we represent, this means greater worldwide exposure enhanced by the confidence of our brand. This has been the strategy that has enabled us to successfully reach qualified international buyers for the homes that we represent.

Engel & Völkers was founded in 1977. The company began as a specialty boutique agency providing high-end real estate services to European investors in search of assistance from experts who were highly professional. We proved our competence and passion early on and quickly earned a reputation for our unparalleled level of service, highly valued network and strong leadership in the market.

Today, there are over 8,000 real estate advisors in 37 countries spanning five continents. Though the Engel & Völkers firm has grown beyond a small boutique agency, we have stayed true to the qualities that remain our keys to success — local market expertise, a highly valued network, and an unparalleled level of service quality.
