Engel & Völkers  Story

The success story of Engel & Völkers began with a small villa in Hamburg's Elbchaussee. This year, the real estate company is celebrating its 40th anniversary and looking back on the milestones of the past decades, as well as into the future. In 1977, Dirk C. Engel founded a real estate brokerage in Hamburg. Four past years later, his friend, the student Christian Völkers, became his partner. Their first joint office was located in a villa in Elbchaussee, whose facade remains part of the brand logo to this day. From here they built up a real estate company that was to change the industry from the bottom up. using innovative marketing concepts and expansion strategies, Engel & Völkers broke with conventional real estate practices. Today, the company is represented in over 30 countries on four continents. More than 10.000 people are now working under the banner of the brand. Since October 2014, Christian Völkers has been sharing the chairmanship with Sven Odia, who began his career at Engel & Völkers as a trainee.
