Engel & Völkers, North America converged on Miami Beach for three power packed days of Exchange.

The purpose of the event is to maintain the strength of the Engel & Völkers global network within North America. License Partners, Brokers, Managers and Sales Advisors have the opportunity to step away from their daily activities for a chance to “Exchange,” hence the name. There were exchanges of everything from national market information, industry best practices, social media, joint venture cross selling, marketing opportunities, and introductions of innovative industry technology, to the basics of one on one relational support, which the Engel & Völkers brand intuitively has built into its culture.

“The Engel & Völkers Exchange Event in Miami offers the ideal platform to promote intensive knowledge sharing between our North American license partners and real estate Advisors. Over the course of our strong expansion in North America, we have appointed a number of new license partners and real estate Advisors in the past year. This opportunity to exchange experiences is particularly valuable for those who have only recently joined the Engel & Völkers network. By opening new Shops in popular first and second home markets, our commission revenues in North America rose by 55.3 percent in 2016 compared to the previous year. We are proud of our success to date and will continue in 2017 to look for motivated license partners and real estate Advisors who wish to become part of our global company.” – Sven Odia, CEO Engel & Völkers.
