Engel & VĂ¶lkers has announced its newest shop in Canada in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, bringing the firmâ€™s global network and exclusive level of service to residents and visitors of this top resort location. The opening comes as an alliance between the leading international real estate firm and Playground Tremblant, a resort real estate brokerage firm and subsidiary of Intrawest, one of North Americaâ€™s premiere mountain resort and adventure companies and owner of Station Mont Tremblant Resort. Playground Tremblant veteran and real estate market leader, Steven Lafave, is the Managing Director of the new Engel & VĂ¶lkers Tremblant.
â€śAs a lifestyle brand we are proud to be joining with Playgound and Intrawest and to have Steve and his team representing Engel & VĂ¶lkers to clients who enjoy the outdoor, mountain living that this extraordinary resort location offers,â€ť said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & VĂ¶lkers North America. â€śThe new Engel & VĂ¶lkers Tremblant will provide the areaâ€™s home sellers and buyers with the highest levels of quality client services, marketing expertise and an unmatched level of international reach from the network of more than 7,000 Engel & VĂ¶lkers professionals around the world who now support them.â€ť
â€śBecause of their international reputation for their exclusive real estate services and expertise, we know that visitors and residents who come to Tremblant from around the world, will be happy to see that Engel & VĂ¶lkers has arrived in this market,â€ť said Patrice Malo, president and CEO of Station Mont Tremblant.
Intrawest acquired Station Mont Tremblant in 1991 and developed the areaâ€™s real estate market into a vibrant resort community for residents and visitors year round. Intrawest established Playground Tremblant with Lafave and his team to provide real estate services in the area, which they have been doing for more than 20 years. Tremblantâ€™s real estate offerings include waterfront homes, ski-in and ski-out condos, golfside residences and premium log homes. The nearby airport servicing with Porter and Air Canada from both Toronto airport makes the destination easily accessible for international visitors.
â€śTremblant is known for its skiing but itâ€™s a year round destination for its autumn colors in Fall and the lakeside beaches during the summer,â€ť said Lafave. â€śIts proximity to Montreal also makes it a popular destination, but the biggest draw among our international residents and visitors is the European culture and spirited lifestyle.â€ť
