The story behind the brand

The company foundations were laid when Dirk C. Engel established Engel & Cie in December 1977. As the exclusive representative of an U.S. brokerage firm, Dirk Engel sold real estate to German investors from downtown Hamburg. A few years later, Dirk C. Engel and Christian Völkers decided to open a brokerage office in the Hamburg Elbe suburbs. The joint office was a villa on the Elbchaussee, whose façade is now an integral element of the brand logo. Christian Völkers took over the company after the death of Dirk C. Engel in 1986, and in 1987 he renamed the company Engel & Völkers GmbH. Since October 2014, Christian Völkers has shared the chairmanship with Sven Odia, who works at Engel & Völkers for more than 20 years.
