On Thursday 26th May, Engel & Völkers real estate Barcelona organised an opening party to welcome the new property shop on the ground floor of Alta Diagonal, specifically located in 640 Diagonal Avenue, with an entrance to Sarriá Avenue. With this new establishment, the company expands the Metropolitan Market Centre (MMC) facilities as part of the strong growth it has already experienced.
The successful opening of the latest Engel & Völkers Barcelona real estate office
With an area of 175 sqm, the shop will focus its activities on properties in Zona Alta and Les Corts as well as rentals. With this expansion, the MMC Barcelona has a portfolio of 1,200 properties and over 250 real estate consultants. Thus, this new office is going to function as a customer service point and at the same time part of the team will be working in the shop and using it as an office. It is a space with a modern design, brightly decorated and equipped with the latest technologies and services that meet customers' needs.
With the launch of this new office, Engel & Völkers Barcelona now has 3 property stores in the Catalan capital::
- Shop Diagonal: Avenida Diagonal, 640
- Shop Ganduxer: Calle Ganduxer, 30
- Shop Paseo de Gracia: Paseo de Gracia, 120
In addition, in the same building of this new store, on the sixth floor, the main headquarters of the company are located. So in Diagonal Avenue, the main hub of Barcelona, Engel & Völkers grows further and continues with its commitment to increase investment in Barcelona. It is also worth noting that the Sant Cugat shop (55 Rius i Taulet Avenue) covers the entire Vallés region.
The real estate agency specialising in luxury homes and apartments is presented favourably for its international image and global network of stores, which benefits both buyers and sellers.
The event was attended by over 300 people: entrepreneurs, customers and acquaintances. The evening began with live music from Martí Puig, DJ Bling Bling from a trendy nightclub, and very carefully selected food by Gau Catering which filled the tables nicely. Codorniu wine was offered to all the guests as well as Codorniu Cava wine and Wine Pomal and Wine Raimat.
A chill out space on the other side of the event was ideal for guests who wanted to sit and chat quietly. The room was decorated and furnished by Kettal with a Jasper Morrison sofa on the corner. The agency had the privilege of having a quiet room with a comfortable design and elegance ideal for such creative events that required functional furniture.
Japanese food was protagonist of the event. The chef from one of the most fashionable and popular Japanese restaurants in Barcelona, Ikibana, was there preparing some dishes at the opening. Attendees could enjoy a fusion of Japanese and Brazilian food based on classic Japanese cuisine.
The event also allowed guests to taste the exquisite cuts of ham by Jamones Castro. A high quality Iberian ham sliced and presented in the best way. Finally, there was chocolate for those who preferred sweets; Chocolat Factory offered bali leaves with a fusion of chocolates, citrus fruits, nuts and mondiants presented in the best way.
Around 7.30pm, several draws took place. The first draw was for driving a Jaguar at Jaguar Experience, spending a weekend road testing XE, XF or F-PACE Jaguar. A great opportunity for all car lovers to have a unique experience.
Golf Vallromanes Club also gave 4 green fees including a cart to go to the golf course and play. Golf Vallromanes Club is in a spectacular location with magnificent golfing facilities: pool, table tennis, tennis and more. An ideal place to unwind and practice some sports at the same time.
In the draw, there was also Grohe, a famous brand of bathroom and kitchen, which sponsored the mojitos for all attendees, with a tap worth € 700. The uniqueness of this product is that it makes the water fizzy for carbonated drinks. In fact, the mojitos were prepared with the taps installed in nine offices. A practical and original product that is truly incomparable.
All in all, it was an event full of details, good taste, good brands and products of all kinds. There were influential figures from the world of finance, culture and sports such as Joan Laporta Estruch, president of FC Barcelona, who was with his partner at the law firm Laporta & Arbos, Xavier Arbós and the associate, Xavier Puig. They also enjoyed the evening with German Plaza Rubert, the Founding Partner and Attorney at Plaza Legal; Jose Ma Pons, director general of the Barcelona Meeting Point; Manuel Piquer Belloch notary, Antonio Diaz of Blas Martinez and Carlos Mateo Bartholome notary, Ariadna Verge, Director of Jaguar Barcelona, among others.
At the real estate Engel & Völkers Barcelona, we would like to thank all attendees and also all the partner brands who managed to turn the event into a perfect evening for everyone. It was a pleasure to inaugurate the new facilities in this way.
