Why Engel & Völkers

Luxury is more than a price point

it’s an experience!

Engel & Völkers has grown from a specialty boutique into a global real estate company. From a local company to a global brand, our history explains how exceptional service drives success. Our expansion continues throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas.

We link together the aspirations of
discerning individuals around the world be it
in a private or business context.
With total passion. 

The company was founded in 1977 in Hamburg, Germany by Dirk Engel and Christian Völkers. In 1990, Engel & Völkers opened its first international shop in Majorca, Spain. We currently have 839 locations in our network and over 11,000 real estate advisors.

We proved our competence and passion early on and quickly earned a reputation for our unparalleled level of service, highly valued network and strong market leadership. Our successes led to greater demand for our specialized premium-level services. With a brand gaining in recognition and reputation, we established a system that allowed us to expand without sacrificing our higher standards of quality.

Though the Engel & Völkers firm has grown beyond a small boutique agency, you can still rely on us for the qualities that remain our keys to success—local market expertise, a highly valued network and an unparalleled level of service quality.

Every Home is a Mansion

  • We send you reporting on the status of your home as frequently as you’d like and through the specific channels you find most convenient

Our hope and our goal are to have the successful sale of your home be the first of many opportunities in which we can be of service to achieve your real estate goals.
