The Engel & Völkers Edge

The Engel & Völkers Edge
Engel & Völkers began as a boutique agency providing high-end real estate services to an exclusive clientele. Today, this commitment to quality continues through each and every office representing the Engel & Völkers name.

The recognition we receive around the globe highlights the properties we represent. In our brand integrated, multi-platform marketing approach we incorporate our expertise in real-estate technology, our global shop network, and our strategic partnerships with multiple listing services and premier print publications to push property exposure to the top.

Why List With Us
The strength of the Engel & Völkers brand rests on the shoulders of our talented real estate Advisors. In fact, we call them Advisors instead of agents to define the level of service and expertise they provide. They are the best in their markets and strive to be better. They have been trained and certified at an Engel & Völkers Academy and have achieved expert knowledge in the tools that are available.

Having an Engel & Völkers Advisor representing your property means working with a real estate professional that possesses in-depth local market knowledge, luxury real estate expertise, exceptional client services regardless of your home’s price range and access to qualified buyers within the area and around the world.

Why Buy With Us
Local Expertise
I offer in-depth knowledge of your local real estate market, from advice on the homes and developments with the best potential return-on-investment, to insight into the properties and neighbourhoods that best match your life stage and lifestyle. I serve clients in Greater Vancouver with my main focus being Vancouver. I’m also part of 2 very large networks of Realtors so I can help you locate the best professionals to work with no matter where you are moving to.

Exclusive Access
In some areas, many homes are sold within hours and days of being listed on MLS. Other properties are marketed exclusively and privately within the Sotheby’s International Realty network without ever being made available to the public. Our connection to over 14,000 associates worldwide gives you direct and priority access to real estate opportunities that would otherwise be difficult to view.

Global Connections
With a network of over 700 offices in 49 countries, Sotheby’s International Realty provides unparalleled access to the global real estate market. We have the experience and contacts to facilitate international real estate transactions and to assist clients who wish to buy Canadian real estate from abroad.

Real Estate Specialization
We assist clients in the purchase of real estate in more than a dozen real estate categories: single-family homes, condos, townhomes and multiplexes, as well as properties that demand specialized knowledge such as waterfront real estate, luxury real estate, golf properties, ski resort properties, rural real estate, vineyards and islands.

Professional Service and Discretion
I commit to providing you with confidential, knowledgeable and responsive service. I guarantee discretion, monitor and promptly deliver listings that meet your criteria, facilitate viewings and property tours according to your individual needs and schedule, and facilitate the negotiation and purchase of your home professionally.

Seamless Sales & Marketing
If buying a home depends on the sale of your current one, I make the process efficient and seamless. Our real estate marketing program reaches the most targeted and qualified buyers through exclusive international, national and local publications, as well as online marketing that generate over 800 million annual impressions.
