Engel & Völkers merges Kris Johnston’s Central Coast Landmark Properties to establish Santa Ynez Shop.

Maintaining the same incredible team, but boasting a new name, larger territory and chic new storefront, we will truly be globally connected with an added level of service.

Engel & Völkers partners with Kris Johnston, Broker and Owner of Central Coast Landmark Properties, to launch the Engel & Völkers Santa Ynez shop. With a career spanning over 30 years in Real Estate Investment and Development, the international, luxury brand welcomes Johnston with open arms.

“We could not have chosen a better Partner and Owner than Kris,” says Engel & Völkers Santa Barbara Manager Siv Merethe Cotton. She goes on to say, “Kris is a well known industry leader, with unrivaled knowledge about our region’s unique real estate. We are here to offer her team and their clientele the white glove service they deserve.”

“Kris is a premier agent in the Central Coast, historically and today,” adds License Partner Dougan Jones. “We’re proud to work with Kris and her team to form a wider network for Engel & Völkers.”

The Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez Engel & Völkers shops are located along the center of California’s coastline. Best known for unparalleled climate and beauty, it is home to many world-class vineyards and wineries, horse and cattle ranches and beautiful residential enclaves. The new partnership will not only expand both Engel &Völkers Santa Barbara County shop territories, but will also allow for a broadened range of service from as far south as Ventura and northward into Paso Robles, California.

“We love what we do, we are passionate about beautiful properties and are dedicated to achieving the best results for our clients, Johnston says. “Maintaining the same incredible team, but boasting a new name, larger territory and chic new storefront, we will truly be globally connected with an added level of service.”

“With its exquisite real estate and lifestyle, Santa Ynez is the perfect fit for our expansion,” says License Partner Paul Benson. “This market is a prime playground for our clientele throughout California and Kris is among the very best in the industry, providing the expertise, service and world-class network that one would expect from Engel & Völkers.”

Engel & Völkers Santa Ynez is Gestalt Group’s 18th of 20 Engel & Völkers shops, each of which is centrally located in premium regions throughout California, Nevada and Utah. Shop doors will officially open in February 2018.
