Today, Engel & Völkers announced the opening of its new brokerage in Wellington, Florida at the same time bringing on board Carol Sollak, formerly of Illustrated Properties, who is the market’s number one real estate agent, and has been listed by the Wall Street Journal as one of the top 100 real estate agents in the U.S.
Engel & Völkers debuts in Wellington with more than 75 listings including a $26.9 million private horse stable in Grand Prix Village. The office also represents numerous private residences in the Wellington area totaling over $100 million in combined value.
Properties in Wellington include luxury homes, and high-end farms and stables that cater to those whose lives center around equestrian sports. Thousands of spectators, including royalty, celebrities, families of local residents and fans worldwide descend on Wellington several times a year to watch top riders compete for coveted trophies.
“Many of the International buyers in Wellington are coming from Europe and South America and include some of the best equestrian competitors, as well as owners of the sport’s top horses,” said Sollak who co-owns the new brokerage with Amy Carr formerly of Westwind Realty. “Engel & Völkers is an international luxury brand offering specialized services and opportunities for all of my buyers and sellers. I look forward to expanding our services and to further meet the needs of my clients.”

Engel & Völkers Wellington will serve the Wellington Community and surrounding area. They are the exclusive brokerage for Grand Prix Village South properties.
Wellington is host to the equestrian world for many of the sport’s top events. Residents of Wellington enjoy the competitions and the events that surround them, but also enjoy living in one of Palm Beach County’s most well designed communities known for its parks, schools, neighborhoods, golf courses and tennis courts and all things Equestrian. There are 57 miles of equestrian trails used by residents for recreation, exercise and transportation throughout the community.
Carr possesses extensive knowledge of horses and equestrian life, which gives her a unique insight into buying and selling equestrian properties for her clients. “We joined Engel & Völkers not only because of its commitment to higher standards in real estate services but because the brand represents a lifestyle shared by many in the Wellington community,” said Amy. “We honor exclusivity and exceptional quality and now have a greater opportunity to reach an international audience for the properties in our market.”
