It’s no secret that Engel & Völkers is one of the world’s leading estate agency networks, but we’ve never been ones to rest on our laurels. With a network of over 500 residential, commercial and yachting shops in over 35 countries, we’re still always looking for the next expansion opportunity. In order to make the most of every exciting new prospect that comes our way, it’s essential that we have and maintain an international team of dedicated, driven and passionate staff – and that’s exactly where you might come in.
Whether you’re considering your next immediate career move or you’re planning several years ahead, we think choosing a company is every bit as important a decision as choosing a profession. Each brand has its own ethos and aspirations, and it’s essential to ensure that you’re a good fit for the company, and vice versa. In order to ensure that we continue to attract staff of the very highest calibre, we offer extensive training and support to all our new recruits. We benefit from a fantastic worldwide network and a team of specialists who work hard to constantly evaluate the market and predict any changes, so we’re always as well informed as our clients need us to be. Our wide ranging presence gives the company the advantage of knowing exactly how each country’s market is set to develop, allowing us to act before anyone else does.
A worldwide presence does require a 24/7 point of contact. Our database is constantly being updated with all of the opportunities that we have available. This is then published on our website, so that visitors can access our offers at any time and from anywhere in the world. In order to keep up with the ever-changing demands of a society that’s increasingly reliant on technology, we’ve even developed our own software called ‘Global Office – Go!’ This software supports our employees and franchisees and provides them with sophisticated mechanisms to manage data, contacts and property profiles. This ensures that there’s a smooth and quick exchange of information across the whole international network.
However, a fantastic software system will never replace the magic of our personable, experienced agents. In order to standardise the exceptional customer service we expect from all of our employees, wherever they are in the world, we founded the Engel & Vӧlkers Real Estate Academy in 1996. We provide our employees with the specialised training they need in order to approach every deal and every client with complete confidence in their own abilities.
The existence of the academy means that our employees all have a thorough understanding of the company’s values and expectations and remember that the most important part of any transaction is always the customer. We believe that it’s training schemes like this that help us to maintain our position as one of the most innovative real estate agencies in the world – and makes us quite simply a great place to work!
