Global luxury real estate brand opens on Mercer Island

Aviation and yacht services are part of Hamburg giant Engel & Völkers’ unique concierge service.

German premier brand Engel & Völkers announced its entry in the Puget Sound market with the opening of new offices in Seattle and Mercer Island, to be followed soon by University Village and Bellevue.

“As a prestigious global player, Engel & Völkers brings an unsurpassed level of customer service to the luxury home buying and selling process,” said co-owner Christine Warjone, who, along with her husband Jim, former chairman and CEO of Port Blakely Companies, are bringing the brand to the Seattle-area market.

The Engel & Völkers brand is known for “unsurpassed client services” and “fostering supportive collaborative relationships with its advisors/agents,” according to a press release. In addition to traditional real estate, clients have access to global luxury properties to lease and buy, including yachts and aviation services thru the company’s exclusive concierge amenities.

“Our model is completely unique in the industry,” said Gabriel Ciuca, the Seattle office’s designated broker. “We are proud of level of support we have for our team, offering an array of premium marketing programs and tools; multiple platforms for mobile, social and web; and access to our global network of real estate professionals, property listings and market data. Our clientele expects the best, and Engel & Völkers delivers on that through a commitment to passionate, professional and highly personalized service.”

Engel & Völkers was established in 1977 as a specialty boutique providing exclusive, high-end real estate services in Hamburg, Germany. The company has since grown into one of the world’s leading service companies specializing in the sale and rental of premium residential property, commercial real estate, yachts and aircraft, with over 800 locations and 10,000 agent/advisors in more than 30 countries.
