Engel & Völkers Expanding
Engel & Völkers, one of the world's leading service companies for the brokerage of prestigious residential property, commercial real estate and yachts, is opening an office in East Hampton at 26 Montauk Highway. The announcement was made by Jonathan Lerner, Managing Director. The East Hampton property shop joins Mr. Lerner's shops in Scarsdale and Southampton.
"We're in the process of setting up and should be open toward the end of January," Mr. Lerner said. "We're growing and delighted to become part of the East Hampton business community," Mr. Lerner said. "Engel & Völkers has 430 residential property shops and 42 commercial real estate offices based in 38 countries on six continents. This gives our clients a global reach when buying, selling or renting properties of distinction. In a global economy this advantage is significant."
Mr. Lerner noted that Engel & Völkers works on the European "property shop" model. "We view service through a different prism," he said. "The property shop model focuses attention on getting to know our clients' preferences and wants – really know them. Our clients tell us that the experience they've had with us before, during and after a sale, is truly remarkable. In most cases they're amazed that our professionalism and old-fashioned courtesy can make a property transaction a pleasant, and not painful experience. We strive to accomplish that with every client."
Mr. Lerner said that the new East Hampton shop is now accepting inquiries from buyers, sellers and renters. "We look forward to meeting with them and becoming an established part of the community," he added.
