Luxury Salt Lake City real estate brokerage hires industry veteran as part of its expansion plan.

Engel & Völkers Salt Lake City announced that local real estate veteran Eric Santistevan has joined its brokerage as Branch Manager. He will soon assume the role of Principal Broker as a key aspect of the branch’s expansion.

In his new role, Santistevan will oversee all aspects of teaching, training, and contract compliance for the brand’s global real estate advisors. He comes to Engel & Völkers after serving as Principal Broker for Keller Williams Utah Real Estate, where he was responsible for as many as 200 real estate professionals and their transactions over the last three years. Licensed as a broker for the past decade, Santistevan began his own career as an agent selling residential real estate to buyers and sellers more than two decades ago.

"Eric is the perfect fit for the culture at Engel & Völkers," said Paul Benson, CEO and License Partner of Engel & Völkers Gestalt Group. “Not only is he passionate about his agents, he also brings many years of broker experience to our company and will be instrumental in our Salt Lake growth plan and beyond."

Santistevan credits his dedication to ethics, authenticity, and equity as the foundation for his success. An active member of the Salt Lake City community, he is committed to promoting diversity via his work and membership with the local Women’s Council of REALTORS® and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP). He also serves on the Salt Lake Board of REALTORS® Charity Committee.

“I have been very familiar with the reputation of Engel & Völkers worldwide for my entire career,” said Santistevan. “Anyone who’s been in the real estate business long enough knows there are very few actual luxury players—E&V is one of them. The brand’s history and reputation have brought me here, but also the fact that I would be working with some of the best agents in Utah. After twenty-five years in real estate, I can say I’m more excited than ever before for the future of our industry and my career.”
