Your real estate company, with a world-famous brand

For many people, self-employment is a dream come true – but small businesses face fierce competition in the real estate sector. As an Engel & Völkers licensed partner, you can enjoy all kinds of perks in your day-to-day activities, while still keeping your own business.


The biggest benefit of a franchise system lies in its global network of expertise. Thanks to this system, Engel & Völkers has enjoyed constant success since the company was founded in 1977. It is interested in dynamic entrepreneurs who want to write their own success story while working with a world-renowned brand. Already working as an independent real estate agent? Or do you even run your own real estate company, with your own employees? Find out about the benefits you could enjoy as a potential Engel & Völkers licensed partner here. 

A trusted brand makes it easier to attract clients

Customers fundamentally trust strong brands – no matter whether we’re talking about Nutella, IKEA or Engel & Völkers. When you run your real estate business under the Engel & Völkers logo, you’ll soon see that the brand’s prestige makes it quicker for you to find customers in your licence area. In addition, you can enjoy access to our unparalleled network of contacts, enabling you to successfully attract clients and drive your business forward.

Tried-and-tested business model ensures you hit the ground running

Engel & Völkers’ franchising concept has proven itself across more than 800 locations in 30+ countries worldwide. This system means we can help our licensed partners enter the market swiftly and secure themselves healthy profits – a huge boost for any businessperson. In addition, our unique system platform will be key to your day-to-day activities: with cutting-edge tools and apps, you and your employees have everything you need for all your business activities. Plus, you can manage your business and your team from wherever and whenever suits you.


Our in-house academy offers training and coaching on key sales processes and other topics relevant to real estate to ensure that your specialist knowledge is always tip-top.

Raising capital made easy – despite high startup requirements

You need capital for a business idea to flourish, and licensed partnerships are no different: a set amount of startup capital is required. However, hardly anyone is able to raise the required sum themselves, which is why people have to borrow capital from outside sources.


At Engel & Völkers, setting up new shops is something we do day in, day out. As a result, our head office offers all prospective licensed partners support in the shape of templates, coaching sessions and help developing business plans and financial plans, with both these basic documents required for discussions with your bank. Plus, banks often find it easier to invest in a concept that is tried-and-trusted around the world and has enjoyed global success.
