“Sensational, I have to view that house!” This was the reaction that one Engel & Völkers client in Essen, Germany, had while watching the TV programme “Faszination Wohnen – Engel & Völkers exklusiv”.
He had been interested in a mansion in the exclusive Essen neighbourhood of Bredeney for a long while. He then happened to see this exact property on 6 November, featured in the second episode of E&V’s television programme shown on Germany’s N24 channel. “It was this television appearance that finally released the trigger. Our client called us and arranged a viewing appointment,” reported Sales Director Susanne Fromm.
The buyer of the mansion in the Bredeney district of Essen first saw the property in an advertisement in the “Welt am Sonntag” newspaper. “His interest had been aroused. Later he then saw the mansion several times on a large poster in our shop display window. He couldn’t stop thinking about it and came into the shop to receive more detailed information about the property. It didn’t go any further than this however,” said Ms. Fromm. Only with the broadcast of the TV programme did he decide to make a decision. “Once our client had seen the property on the television he phoned up straight away and arranged a viewing appointment. Owning a property that has been featured on television is something quite special. And this special something is what the client was looking for,” Ms. Fromm summed up.
