Engel & Völkers recently announced the acquisition of Florida Platinum Realty, located at 26381 South Tamiami Trail No. 108, across from Bonita Bay and Pelican Landing in Bonita Springs, Fla. The office is being remodeled and renamed Engel & Völkers Naples Bonita-Estero. It is the second office in the area for Engel & Völkers. The first location, Engel & Völkers Olde Naples, opened in 2010 and is located on prestigious 5th Avenue South in downtown Naples, Fla. The Bonita Springs office will be Engel & Völkers’ 23rd location in Florida.

“Engel & Völkers’ international network and ultra-elite standards impeccably align with our vision of embracing global principles, enabling Bonita Springs and surrounding area real estate buyers and sellers to receive the highest possible level of service,” says Ryan Chiodo, former owner of Florida Platinum Realty and now License Partner and Broker Associate of Engel & Völkers Naples Bonita-Estero.

“With its international buyer market and exclusive multi-million dollar communities, Bonita Springs fits the high standards to further expand Engel & Völkers’ market share,” says Joe Epifanio, License Partner and Managing Broker of Engel & Völkers Naples Bonita-Estero. “Our in-depth knowledge of the Southwest Florida real estate landscape and distinct marketing methods will create a dynamic pairing between our two shops.”

“The lifestyle of Southwest Florida, the heart of which is the Naples-Bonita-Estero area, is known and coveted not just by Americans, but also by discerning individuals throughout the world,” says James A. Hollars, who along with his wife, Ellen Hollars, are the founding license partners of Engel & Völkers Naples Bonita-Estero. “Thanks to Engel & Völkers’ integrated world-wide network, we have unparalleled access to the world’s most affluent clientele. Engel & Völkers offers a superior level of service which has made our name and the chic white E&V façade synonymous with integrity, passion, competence and exclusivity. A defining factor for the company’s success is that we combine local market knowledge with an international client base. We are the fastest growing premium real estate company in the U.S. and in Canada. Why? Because we offer E&V’s globalized and distinguished professionalism to local markets. We are proud and excited to be a part of the Engel & Völkers success story.”

Forbes Magazine recently wrote that the Naples area is forecasted to be one of the fastest growing areas in the USA during the next five years. The annual economic growth is projected to be over 4.5 percent by 2016. Further increasing the quality of life is the area’s low crime rate, the third lowest in the USA according to Forbes Magazine. With the Bonita-Estero opening, Austin, Concord, Houston, and seven other Canadian brokerages, Engel & Völkers continues to strengthen its presence across North America.
