The Engel & Völkers company headquarters in Hamburg sent out invitations to an exclusive event at the end of September, aimed at thanking the most successful real estate agents in the global Engel & Völkers network in 2016 for their outstanding achievements. Around 60 “Top Agents” attended the event on the River Seine.
Member of the Board Kai Enders had nothing but enthusiasm: “The Top Agent Event is one of the highlights of the year for my fellow board members and myself. We enjoy meeting and interacting with our most successful agents and consultants from around the world. I am delighted that we got to welcome award winners in Paris from shops, offices and Market Centers, from major cities and small towns, and from a host of different countries. With exceptional commitment, it is possible for anyone to make it to the top.”
The winners from 2016 were treated to a special program that included a dinner and a sightseeing tour in vintage Citroën cars. The award ceremony itself was held in the Paris Market Center. CEO Sven Odia officially started the proceedings. Each winner received a beautifully designed award with the Engel & Völkers Logo and their name, category and ranking engraved on it. The finale of the event was a gala dinner on board a ship on the Seine. With direct views of the Eiffel Tower, a final toast was made to the winners who have each made a significant contribution to the ongoing growth of Engel & Völkers with their remarkable performance records.
Every year, Engel & Völkers produces a ranking of the most successful real estate agents in its international network. Here is an overview of the winners in 2016 in the Residential and Commercial divisions.
