Through the Private Office division, Engel & Völkers has created an exclusive service dedicated to the diplomatic corps. This division, which is in charge of advising and managing the intermediation of real estate assets for top level clients, will offer all the international embassies that are located in Madrid a service based on absolute discretion.
"The goal of Engel & Völkers is to become the trusted partner of the diplomatic corps," says Paloma Pérez Bravo, the General Director of Engel & Völkers in Madrid. "Our great knowledge and experience about the market and the needs of this specific type of customer as well as the exclusive network of properties and agents we have worldwide, have allowed us to design a valuable division that will facilitate the ongoing transfers of the personnel diplomats at the same time as saving time, effort and money", explains Pérez.
The needs of Embassies and Consulates
The biggest part of the budget that consulates and embassies have to face within the external services is the purchase or rental of buildings to establish their headquarters as well as the residences for the personnel. The difficulties that diplomats face in a foreign country and in a language that is not their own, together with the demanding criteria that must be met by institutional places and residences, require significant time and effort.
Through the experience acquired in recent years and a detailed analysis of the needs of every diplomatic corp, Engel & Völkers understands perfectly about these requirements of protocol, image, location as well as security requirements, legal aspects and specific needs of each embassy.
