Engel & VĂ¶lkers recently announced the opening of its first Austin shop, enhancing the level of service and global real estate reach available to real estate consumers in the vibrant area. The opening comes with the union between the storied international brokerage and Turnquist Partners REALTORSÂ®, a longstanding luxury real estate firm serving Austin and the surrounding area for decades and owned by Steve and Michele Turnquist.
The partnership will bring 75 agents from Turnquist Partners to the new Engel & VĂ¶lkers Austin, further solidifying the firmâ€™s presence in the Texas marketplace.
â€śFollowing Engel & VĂ¶lkersâ€™ launch in Dallas this past November, having Turnquist Partners joining our network provides the ideal opportunity to expand our Texas footprint in a truly dynamic city such as Austin,â€ť says CEO of Engel & VĂ¶lkers North America, Anthony Hitt. â€śTurnquist Partnersâ€™ deep knowledge of the local Austin marketplace will combine seamlessly with Engel & VĂ¶lkersâ€™ connected global network to best serve the comprehensive real estate needs of Austinâ€™s buyers and sellers.â€ť
Engel & VĂ¶lkers Austin, the head office, is centrally located at 3700 Bee Caves Road, will provide leading services for buyers and sellers of premier properties in Austin and its surrounding neighborhoods. With the ongoing strength in the job market, particularly in the tech sector, and second home buyers continuing to flock to the area, Austin is emerging as a key residential destination for both local and international buyers.
â€śAs a native Austinite with deep roots in this magnificent city, it has been my privilege to see Austin blossom into a truly global community over the past number of years,â€ť says Michele Turnquist who, along with Steve Turnquist, owns Engel & VĂ¶lkers Austin. â€śTurnquist Partners has served Austin for the past two decades with a dedicated, hands-on approach, and our partnership with Engel & VĂ¶lkers provides the leverage necessary to continue thriving in todayâ€™s global marketplace, while maintaining our core philosophies as a family run business.â€ť
â€śThis strategic partnership will ensure that we continually provide clients with industry leading tools and support,â€ť added Steve Turnquist, co-owner of Engel & VĂ¶lkers Austin. â€śIn todayâ€™s ever-evolving market, Engel & VĂ¶lkers offers an exceptional platform that brings our brand to the next level.â€ť
With the opening of Austinâ€™s Westlake and Lakeway shops and the recent opening of the Beverly Hills and Canada brokerages, Engel & VĂ¶lkers continues to strengthen its presence in the premium real estate market across North America. Additionally, Engel & VĂ¶lkers continues to expand throughout the United States with the opening of new shops in Vienna, Virginia; Concord, Massachusetts; and Houston, Texas.
