Engel & Völkers Charlotte announced today that Charlotte real estate veteran, Laurie Knudsen, will join their existing leadership team as Vice President of Advisor Advancement and Broker-in-Charge. This announcement comes on the heels of the firm’s grand opening of its second location in Uptown Charlotte and the announcement of its expansion into the Lake Norman area with its shop location in Birkdale Village.

“We are thrilled to have Laurie [Knudsen] on board,” stated Owner, Yuriy Vaynshteyn. “Her knowledge and background create an incredible opportunity for us to advance the careers of our existing advisors and hire additional top talent to complement our team.”

Knudsen’s real estate career spans over 20 years in Charlotte. She has worked for both national franchises and local firms, served on many local, state and national boards and is a pillar in the real estate community. Knudsen is certified by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission to teach continuing education and pre-licensing and post-licensing courses. She also holds her Real Estate Mediator designation from the National Association of Realtors® and previously served as President of the Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association.

Knudsen joins the leadership team at Engel & Völkers Charlotte which is comprised of owner Yuriy Vaynshteyn, Executive Vice President, Frances Bryant, and Vice President, Sue Fessler. The three have led the expansion of the brand over the past two years and have seen a tremendous amount of growth.

“In just under two years, we have doubled our growth and volume. Engel & Völkers provides a high level of customer service and a better way of doing of business. Our clients and advisors appreciate the way we run our day-to-day operations and understand the value,” stated EVP, Frances Bryant.

Engel & Völkers Charlotte’s second location in Uptown Charlotte launched in March 2017 to complement the existing Ballantyne location. The firm will further the footprint of Engel & Völkers north to the Lake Norman area with its Birkdale Village location slated to open Summer 2017.
