The event was held in Lisbon on September 27th, at 6:30 in the evening at the Doubletree by Hilton Fontana Park Hotel. This was an event dedicated to the recruitment of estate agents for the Market Centre of the Portuguese capital. This event was promoted by the real estate agency, Engel & Völkers, the world leader in the industry, specialising in the mediation of commercial and residential real estate.
The main event was about the selection of the best hundred estate agents, who will join a team of 150 professionals at the Lisbon Market Centre. The event was attended by a very large number of people and was a great success for the brand.
The Market Centre is a reapplication of the strategy that this brand has been adopting in several countries of the world, such as Spain (namely in the cities of Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia), Italy (Rome), France (in the city of Paris), Dubai and the United States of America (in New York). In Lisbon, this Market Centre aims to develop its business activity throughout the 24 parishes of the Portuguese capital.
Focused on the work dynamics of professionals, Engel & Völkers will create a workplace where continuous training will be guaranteed with the usual mastery of the Engel & Völkers Academy by adding to it the accessibility of spaces and work tools that motivate and support every one of its agents. In addition to the training workshops, offices, meeting rooms and marketing tools, the estate agents will also have access to human resources, which the brand guaranteeing the opening of 15 new job posts, which specifically aim to ensure that the agents receive the support they require.
Present in our country since 2006, this brand intends to expand its national presence with the opening of a Market Centre, where it will change the way that the real estate mediation networks relate to their agents. This business model, fundamentally new and in which Engel & Völkers is a pioneer, aims to deepen the mastery of the sector, bringing the customer and the brand even closer and reinforcing the value of the company and its competitors, with a firmer, more sophisticated and professional presence.
September 27th reinforced the importance of this recruitment day, as highlighted by the company's team leaders, namely Rui Mineiro and Lúcia Fernandes, who were responsible for opening the event, as well as Juan-Galo Màcia, CEO of Engel & Völkers in Iberia who was the closing event's speaker.
The event, which was strongly marked by the attendance of hundreds of people, came to an end with a cocktail that brought together representatives of the brand and the participants who exchanged lots of new ideas with each other.
