We want to apply everything from this superb track record and expand on our market position in Valencia too,” said Miguel Ángel Cantos, Managing Director of the Engel & Völkers Market Center in Valencia.
The MC Valencia occupies some 200 square metres of office space on the Gran Vía Marqués del Turia. The brokerage region of Engel & Völkers encompasses the very best addresses in Valencia. This includes the districts of Ciutat Vella, Eixample, Gran Vía and Costa de Valencia.

Growing interest in luxury homes from international buyers
