JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Engel & Völkers Florida today announced its latest franchise expansion in Northeast Florida with Engel & Völkers Jacksonville; marking the brand's sixth location in the region and 34th in the state. Local market expert, Corey Hasting acquired the territory of Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach as part of his regional growth strategy. Hasting is the License Partner of Engel & Völkers Jacksonville, with locations in St. Johns, Jacksonville Beach, and now Neptune Beach. Hasting also recently acquired the franchise rights to Engel & Völkers Amelia Island, which is slated to open later this year.
"We couldn't be more excited to open our newest shop at the Beaches Town Center in Neptune Beach," said Hasting. "This is a perfect addition to the two shops I've already established in Northeast Florida. Engel & Völkers Jacksonville located at Beaches Town Center will allow our advisors, some of whom live beachside, to more effectively serve the community. This location enables us to strengthen our growing brand awareness and further the mission of the Engel & Völkers brand becoming a top brokerage in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas."
Prior to partnering with Engel & Völkers to open his first brokerage, Hasting consistently ranked among the top residential real estate agents in Northeast Florida and was awarded numerous accolades while previously with Keller Williams Realty. He has since grown his regional presence to include four Engel & Völkers shops. Hasting leads 62 active advisors and manages an inventory of over 100 listings between all the shops. The newest shop will serve the beachside communities of Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, North Beach and Mayport.
"We are thrilled to expand our presence in Northeast Florida with Corey," said Peter Giese, Chief Growth Officer at Engel & Völkers Florida. "Our core focus is on expanding into new markets throughout Florida with industry leaders who have demonstrated impressive achievements. We are delighted by Corey's performance with his first two shops and look forward to working alongside him on his next venture in Neptune Beach."
Neptune Beach is a beachfront city east of Jacksonville. The new brokerage will be located at 214 Orange St in the Beaches Town Center. In the heart of Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach, Beaches Town Center is the place where Atlantic Boulevard meets the ocean. The typical home value in Neptune Beach is $514,404 and home values have increased by 12 percent over the past year. The small coastal community is known for its casual atmosphere, natural beauty, hard-packed sand which is great for cycling and ideal waves that make for some of the best surfing in Florida.
"Engel & Völkers Jacksonville's newest shop in Neptune Beach will make a wonderful addition to our ever-growing network," said Timo Khammash, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers Florida. Northeast Florida has a thriving real estate market, as evident by a surge in demand, record-breaking sales prices, local home values on the rise."
Engel & Völkers has maintained a presence in the Northeast Florida market since Hasting, who left Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Partners to start his own company, obtained the franchise rights to Engel & Völkers Jacksonville Beach in April of 2018. The brand has since expanded with other locations in St. Augustine and Palm Coast.
