ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (PRWEB) November 16, 2021
Engel & Völkers Florida, the master franchisor for the Engel & Völkers brand in the state of Florida, celebrated the official opening of one of its newest franchises with a grand opening gala event on Thursday, October 21, 2021. The boutique real estate shop, Engel & Völkers St. Augustine is located at 6401 A1A South. More than 150 guests attended the grand opening for the official ribbon cutting ceremony and reception, including shop advisors, staff, friends, customers, business owners, event partners, and executives from Engel & Völkers Florida.
“On the exterior, Engel & Völkers St. Augustine resembles a castle, but its interior exhibits the same modern design shared by our unique network of high-end real estate shops around the world,” said Jennifer Bryndal, License Partner of Engel & Völkers St. Augustine. “Our shop reflects our belief that Engel & Völkers properties should be showcased in the finest way possible and that our clients and community should enjoy the entire real estate process, which includes visiting us at ‘The Castle.’ Our team also reflects these ideals, and our location is just another benefit that sets us apart. We are officially on the world map and will continue to best serve the needs of our community through our local market expertise and our enhanced global exposure.”
Engel & Völkers St. Augustine represents a partnership between the international real estate firm and local market expert, Bryndal. She acquired the franchise rights in late 2019, and leads the brokerage as its License Partner and Broker, while simultaneously conducting her own transactions as a Private Office Advisor, an exclusive network of professionals within Engel & Völkers. Merging 15 years of real estate experience with world-class marketing systems and technology and a connected international network, the Engel & Völkers St. Augustine shop provides white-glove client services in all of Northeast Florida.
“Since partnering with Jenn on bringing Engel & Völkers to St. Augustine, everything has always felt right with her and the community,” said Peter Giese, Chief Growth Officer at Engel & Völkers Florida. “It was a perfectly planned evening to formally and personally introduce the brand to the neighborhood and it was wonderful to have the event supported by the local community with such great enthusiasm.”
Event highlights included catering by Michael's St. Augustine and Sunset Grille; craft cocktails, including a brand-specific Hamburg Mule, by the Ice Plant; live portraits by renowned local fine artist, Jenna Alexander; $1,500 worth of raffle items by Blue Water Jewelers and The Surf Station; cupcakes by Sweet City Cupcakes; festive balloons by Celebrations; flowers by Feather + Bloom, and live music by Michael Mangaroo and Denis Vasenin. All event photography and videography was shot by Brew Media. Jacksonville Jaguars Defensive Lineman and Engel & Völkers St. Augustine's client, Dawuane Smoot had planned to attend the event but, instead, heroically, and unexpectedly, stayed home to deliver his newborn daughter, Ahlani Moon Smoot.
