Engel & Völkers has been in existence since 1977 - providing you with 40 years of real estate expertise, exclusive service and passionate engagement! After taking a closer look at our residential property division in the first part of our series on our areas of operation, this second part is devoted to our commercial property division, Engel & Völkers Commercial. Join us on a journey of discovery and see how Engel & Völkers also implements its core values of competence, exclusivity and passion in other areas besides residential property on a daily basis.
1988 was a special year for Engel & Völkers on its road to success. Not only did it mark the release of its very own home and lifestyle magazine GG - which was then still called “Grund Genug Magazine”, it was also around this time that founder and chairman Christian Völkers set up the division of Engel & Völkers that would significantly contribute to the success of the company to this day: the commercial property division. Initially, it operated under the name of Engel & Völkers Gewerbe Immobilien GmbH, but was subsequently renamed to Commercial GmbH.
Right from the start, the same quality standards applied for the commercial property division as for the residential division. Meanwhile, Engel & Völkers is meeting the demands of commercial clients in over 90 international locations - be it with regard to investment or finding prime commercial space. As a client, you benefit from a global Engel & Völkers network with access to a huge customer base and unique real estate. Furthermore, you can rely on the well-founded expertise of our consultants, who - just like our residential experts - draw on the market analysis of our research team. This guarantees that the assessments of Engel & Völkers are always based on the latest figures and consider local as well as global market trends. These insights and the well-founded expertise provide unparalleled advisory competence for meeting even the highest commercial property demands.
The investment consulting of Engel & Völkers as part of Engel & Völkers Commercial GmbH provides clients with sound advice and active support, ranging from strategic consulting to finalising transactions - also when it comes to residential property. To meet the special demands of the hotel sector, Engel & Völkers has also set up a special division, Engel & Völkers Hotel Consulting, that advises investors, operators and developers. Our consultants work according to the 360° principle: Not only do they develop short-term solutions for meeting client demands, they also consider all aspects that impact a hotel property in its life cycle. Our work focuses on project development, transactions, performance and various other operational aspects. In regular blog postings, Engel & Völkers Commercial also provides you with news, insights and information about current market trends. This ensures that you are always kept up-to-date online as well.
Thus, the brand values of Engel & Völkers - competence, exclusivity and passion - reveal themselves not only in the residential property division, but also when it comes to commercial space. In the soon-to-be released third part of our series about the business areas of Engel & Völkers, you will discover that our values are not only represented on land, but also on water - because the next time we will be presenting yet another of our business segments: yachting.
