A tradition of premium service

Since we first opened our doors in 1977 as a specialty real estate boutique providing exclusive, white-glove client services in Hamburg, Germany, Engel & Völkers has become one of the world’s leading international companies.

Today, we specialize in the sale and lease of premium residential and commercial property, yachts and private jets. We currently operate a global network of over 8,500 real estate Advisors in more than 750 brokerages spanning over 30 countries.

For the homes we represent, including yours, this means greater worldwide exposure enhanced by the confidence of our brand. This has been the strategy that has enabled us to successfully reach qualified international buyers for the homes we represent.

Wherever an Engel & Völkers office has opened, whether in Europe, Africa, Asia or in the Americas, the worldwide recognition of our brand follows. The values that define us Luxury level service.



Every home is a mansion.

More than real estate Advisors


The best real estate agents help their clients buy and sell homes. Engel & Völkers Advisors do more. They will offer you guidance and insight in ways not every agent can. In fact, we designate our agents as “Advisors” to better define the higher level of service they provide.

Engel & Völkers consistently maintains high levels of service experience throughout the world by managing performance at every level. We are highly selective of the agents who join us. We approach top performers with proven track records and real estate professionals who are well respected within the community. A deep understanding of client service is essential. Our Advisors start out great and always strive to be better.
