The story of our brand – from Hamburg to the world

Engel & Völkers looks back on a long history with its origins in Hamburg, Germany. The company foundations were laid when Dirk C. Engel established Engel & Cie in December 1977.

As the exclusive representative of a US brokerage firm, he sold real estate to German investors from downtown Hamburg. Four years later, Dirk C. Engel and Christian Völkers decided to open a brokerage office in Hamburg’s Elbe suburbs. The first business premises were in a villa on the historic “Elbchaussee” boulevard.

The two founders went on to develop a property business that would change the industry from the ground up and become operational worldwide. By introducing the franchise system, implementing innovative marketing concepts, and continually expanding into internationally sought-after first and second home markets, Engel & Völkers left brokerage practices that were previously standard behind it and evolved into a globally successful brand.

Engel & Völkers now delivers innovative solutions to the real estate sector. With its digital tools and IT products, the company is setting new standards – both in the realisation of smart solutions for property brokerage as well as in the provision of excellent services relating to all aspects of real estate.

Five shops - a team across the whole country

The demand for real estate in Greece has been increasing in recent years, with Athens and the Greek islands being the most sought-after destinations. Athens, as the capital city, has seen significant growth in demand due to the high number of tourists, students, and professionals who are attracted to the city's rich history and vibrant cultural scene. The Greek islands, on the other hand, have always been popular amongst foreign buyers, especially those from Europe, who are looking for a vacation home or a retirement property.

Currently, we have five shops operating throughout Greece, serving clients in various regions and cities. Our headquarters is located in Athens, where we maintain a team of dedicated professionals who are passionate about helping our clients achieve their real estate goals.

As we continue to grow and expand our presence in Greece, we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in all of our business dealings. Whether you are buying or selling a property, we are here to guide you every step of the way and ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
