NAPLES, Fla. (PRWEB) November 10, 2020
Engel & Völkers Florida hosted a virtual awards ceremony on Friday, November 6 in lieu of its annual Leadership Summit to honor select Engel & Völkers shops for their exceptional performance in 2019. More than 40 senior members of the regional network, which comprises 32 franchise brokerages throughout Florida, attended the virtual event via Google Meet.
“The tremendous success and growth we have enjoyed at Engel & Völkers Florida recently is due, in large part, to our franchisees,” said Timo Khammash, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers Florida. “My team and I are very proud of their unwavering efforts, and are so glad we could recognize them in this way. We look forward to the opportunity for our collaborative network to join together in person again soon.”
Each year, the Master Licensee hosts a conference for its regional network to reflect on the previous year, discuss best practices, highlight growth, strategize expansion plans, honor top performing shops with awards and celebrate. Award categories are based on the shops that demonstrate exceptional performance in real estate sales, talent attraction and exemplify the brands core values of Competence, Exclusivity and Passion.
With a total transaction count of 474, conducted by 50 real estate advisors, the network was pleased to announce Engel & Völkers Jacksonville as its first place winner for Most Transactions in 2019, trumping the previous year's first place recipient, Engel & Völkers Clermont, who, with 48 advisors, closed 250 transactions in 2018. Second and third place runners-up for the category were respectively Engel & Völkers Wellington with a total transaction count of 357 and Engel & Völkers Olde Naples with 281 transactions.
Engel & Völkers Wellington took home the first place award for Most Gross Commission Income (GCI) for the fourth consecutive year. With a total GCI of over $7 million in 2019, the southeast Florida shop exceeded the previous year’s figure of nearly $6 million. Second and third place runners-up for the category included Engel & Völkers Olde Naples with a total GCI more than $4.17 million and Engel & Völkers Jacksonville who ended 2019 with a total GCI of over $4.16 million.
The Talent Attraction award went to Engel & Völkers Jacksonville for the second year in a row. Network wide, 219 advisors joined Engel & Völkers in Florida in 2019, totalling over $350 million in transactional volume. Engel & Völkers Jacksonville logged in 12 advisors, totaling more than $100 million in production.
The ceremony concluded with the company’s Core Values award category; recognizing the shops who most exemplified Competence, Exclusivity, and Passion in 2019. Engel & Völkers 30A Beaches was recognized twice, for both Competence and Exclusivity; a first for any shop within the Engel & Völkers Florida network. The final core value award, Passion, went to Engel & Völkers Melbourne Central.
“It has been a distinct privilege working with each of our shops over the last year since I joined the company,” said Peter Giese, Chief Growth Officer of Engel & Völkers Florida. “I’m impressed by what we have been able to accomplish together thus far and look forward to accelerating that growth even further. Our goal for 2021 is 40-percent overall sales volume growth, based on total sales achieved from this year and the addition of new shops and advisors.”
