JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Engel & Völkers today announced license partner Corey Hasting has obtained the Engel & Völkers franchise rights to the Jacksonville, Florida market, expanding his previous presence in Jacksonville Beach. Hasting first opened Engel & Völkers Jacksonville Beach in early 2018.
"This was always the goal," said Hasting. "When I decided to take the leap of opening my own brokerage, I knew I needed to partner with an exceptional brand like Engel & Völkers to achieve my aspirations. This expansion will allow us to best serve the Jacksonville market."
Since Engel & Völkers Jacksonville Beach opened for business in April 2018, it has grown to 19 advisors, closed 120 transactions year to date, has a current inventory of 102 listings and is on track to hit $185 million in volume by years end. Hasting's recruiting philosophy consists of a set of standards that potential advisors must meet in order to be considered; that includes minimum production numbers, work ethic and professional energy. Hasting plans to continue this vigorous trend as he expands his operations with Engel & Völkers Jacksonville.
"We're thrilled to expand our presence in Northeast Florida with Corey," said Timo Khammash, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers Florida. "While we continue to explore new markets and partnerships for our brand, we value the relationships we have with our existing license partners and are overjoyed at their growth – especially if it allows them to expand their businesses."
Hasting is exploring new office spaces for Engel & Völkers Jacksonville in the San Marco area and plans to open in early 2020. His goals include aggressive growth in terms of recruiting, transaction volume and gross commission income.
"While Engel & Völkers Jacksonville Beach has served all of our surrounding markets in the past, the expansion with Engel & Völkers Jacksonville will now allow our current and future advisors and clients a central hub," said Hasting.
Centred on the banks of the St. Johns River in the First Coast region of northeast Florida, Jacksonville is the most populous city in Florida, the most populous city in the south-eastern United States and the largest city by area in the contiguous United States. Jacksonville home values have gone up 8.8-percent over the past year and are predicted to rise 7.1-percent within the next year.
Before he became a broker, Hasting consistently ranked among the Top 50 Residential Real Estate Agents of Northeast Florida and was awarded numerous accolades while previously with Keller Williams Realty.
