It seems like yesterday, but it has actually been 5 years since Engel & Völkers in Barcelona opened its doors. Throughout this time, we have been commissioned to establish a new and revolutionary business model that has not only proven its effectiveness in Barcelona and its province, but also all over the world.
The concept on which the business model of Engel & Völkers in Barcelona is based has to be none other than the Metropolitan Market Centre. In particular, it is based on the opening of a central office with its objective to cover the metropolitan market as a whole, which is why it has become a wide work space where real estate agents find a platform that gives them support. Since then, we went further and expanded our offices in other major cities, such as Rome, Paris, Dubai and Madrid, with a success that even we were not able to imagine.
In particular, at this moment in time, there are more than 200 trained real estate consultants who have created a network that covers the entit metropolitan area of Barcelona. Each of them has responsibility for a specific geographical area and has taken on the task of putting together their own portfolio of clients by offering them properties for sale and rent. In fact, in these portfolios, it is possible to find flats, single-family houses, loft style flats, villas, etc.
To celebrate our company's fifth anniversary, Engel & Völkers in Barcelona organised a special dinner event in which all those who have been part of the project from the beginning were present. There is no doubt that our real estate consultants are the ones who contributed to our success in the city and its metropolitan area.
Among the guests who attended the event, special mention has to go to Mireia Contreras, the Relationship Manager of Engel & Völkers' Spain, and Jordi Boneta, our top sales consultant in Zona Alta. However, we can not leave out our S1 Enzo Reale, Miriam López and María José Campamar as well as Kati Lizandra (S2), Ignacio Pérez and Patricia Ravago (S3).
This event helped us reflect on everything we have achieved so far and to gather strength to face the many challenges that lie ahead in the future. We hope that within the next 5 years, we can celebrate the tenth anniversary of Engel & Völkers in Barcelona by boasting even better results and with an even greater network of advisers. Thank you very much everyone for your attendance and for being part of our team!
