E&V proudly sponsors the annual event in honor of Germany’s day of unity

"Headquartered in Germany, it is of great meaning, importance, and pride for our company to maintain a strong connection with our roots." -- Raphael Barragán, CEO of Engel & Völkers Beverly Hills

Germany-based luxury real estate brand, Engel & Völkers, joins in celebrating the 25th Annual Day of German Unity event in Los Angeles on October 3rd. Held at the historic Villa Aurora, the Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas E&V shops, in partnership with RPM Mortgage, show their support and patriotism in sponsoring the special event.

“This is a significant year in the event’s history and we are honored to be participants for this milestone,” says Raphael Barragán, CEO of Engel & Völkers Beverly Hills. “Headquartered in Germany, it is of great meaning, importance, and pride for our company to maintain a strong connection with our roots.”

On October 3, 1990 East and West Germany reunited to form one single nation. War-stricken and split apart in 1945, with Soviets occupying the East and the United States and their allies controlling the West, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the celebrated event in the country’s history, a unification process that began with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Home to this years event, the stunning Villa Aurora stands as a memorial to artists and intellectuals who were victims of Nazi persecution – a truly symbolic venue at which to recall the return of peace to Germany and the renewal of a commitment to shape the world through freedom.

Over 500 guests, including German and American politicians, celebrities, and business professionals are set to attend the event hosted by the German Consulate. Other notable sponsors, such as VW, Sixt, Bosch, and Jaegermeister are also showing their German pride in supporting this special event.
