What's inside the latest issue:
Made in Germany
Today, the Engel & Völkers brand is fervently growing across the Americas, but it all began in Hamburg, Germany. Starting out as a boutique real estate agency, our fundamental values of competence, exclusivity and passion precipitated our success for the next 40 years as we expanded into global territories and built our world-renowned network on those same immovable tenants.
It’s a familiar Hollywood archetype: one man, one big dream. As founder of a multinational company presiding over 800 brokerages across the globe, Christian Völkers can truly be the star of his own biopic. But in 1977, he was just a young man with seemingly lofty ambitions, constantly confronted by naysayers. GG shares an intimate conversation with the astoundingly humble yet passionate visionary himself as he reflects on what he has built.
A New Brick-and-Mortar
With our expansion into the Americas, Engel & Völkers has never been closer to the brink of extreme global prominence. Marking another turning point in the company's history, Engel & Völkers’ new global headquarters building in Hamburg’s Hafen-City will soon be completed to help bring this brand into the future.
The Appeal of Porsche
Built upon decades of excellence, Engel & Völkers has never stopped admiring other iconic peer brands that have made history in their own right. Since 1931, Porsche has been revered as the master of car manufacturing, supremely combining quality and style into every aspect of its engineering. With a global following by car aficionados, actors and designers alike, Porsche’s legacy sees no end.
Known for its hilltop views and idyllic fisherman’s houses, Blankenese, Germany’s most veiled and extraordinary gem is surely the 1920s pre-war Villa Jako, former home of Karl Lagerfeld. With the creative director of fashion industry giants Chanel and Fendi as its in-house designer, Villa Jako was predestined to be striking. GG gives an exclusive look into the profoundly chic home.
White façades and large windows showcase beautiful exposés that draw visitors in as they dream of a new home. Whether in Toronto, Savannah, Barcelona or Brussels, Engel & Völkers shops are an expression of our passion for real estate and our shared commitment to supporting our advisors in delivering bespoke experiences.
