A strong brand for your real estate company

The real estate industry is tough, with the larger-scale competition making it hard for smaller companies to access good properties for sale. With Engel & Völkers, you can keep your company while joining forces with an internationally successful real estate brand. 


For lots of people, helping others to find a new house or apartment is one of the best jobs they could imagine. Sharing your clients’ joy in helping them to make their dream home a reality is also a great feeling for you as an estate agent. The real estate industry does have its downsides, however, with the increasing competition making day-to-day business difficult for smaller companies in particular. This is why it’s worthwhile considering joining the internationally renowned Engel & Völkers franchise system and steering your success to new heights.


Requirements for taking on a licence

Let’s get one thing clear – you don’t have to have your own real estate company to become a franchise partner. What we’re looking for are motivated and experienced entrepreneurs or managers who are passionate about independent working and economic success. In addition to these personal requirements, you’ll also need to have a certain amount of start-up capital to open a franchise business. We’ll support you in finding the best financing arrangement for you – regardless of whether you’re just joining the real estate industry or already have your own real estate company.


The benefits and opportunities of a license partnership

Once you join the Engel & Völkers franchise system with your real estate company, you’ll soon see how the strong Engel & Völkers brand can impact your work. The prestige and international profile of the brand will make it easier for you to acquire properties, clients and – last but by no means least – talented employees.


What is more, this tried-and-tested franchise model is already successful in over 30 different countries. Our licence partners enjoy rapid and profitable market entry, the benefits of our unique system platform with innovative digital tools and apps and the outsourcing of non-productive work to the central office, so that you can focus on your core business.


While individual entrepreneurship is an endless battle against the competition, as an Engel & Völkers licence partner you’ll be embedded in a completely different working culture. Each licence area is clearly defined, which means that our other franchise partners are not your competitors, but your colleagues. Regular events held by Engel & Völkers enable you to maintain contact with, and benefit from, our huge network. When it comes to client acquisition, marketing activities and so much more, the benefits of being part of an international network are unbeatable.
