International Real Estate Expands in Florida With Arrival of Engel & Völkers in The Villages
The global luxury brand brings a new approach to real estate service and worldwide access to premier central Florida properties

New York, NY (October 19th) –With the opening of the new Engel & Völkers office in The Villages comes a distinct brand of real estate service with a global reputation for exceptional quality and, for the agency’s clients throughout its worldwide network, new access to premier properties in central Florida.

The office is the newest addition to the 482 Engel & Völkers shops located in 35 countries on six continents. The high-end global real estate brand has been expanding throughout the United States and especially in Florida where there are offices in prime markets including Miami, Naples and Key West. Engel & Völkers The Villages will serve The Villages, a highly desirable, master planned retirement community; Ocala, an active equestrian real estate property market; and the high-end golf community of Harbor Hills.

“Engel & Völkers raises the level of service in the real estate markets where we operate,” said Anthony Hitt, Chief Operating Officer of Engel & Völkers USA. “Our new shop in The Villages is a great opportunity to expand the reach of our brand of exceptional service.”

The debut of the Engel & Völkers The Villages has already been marked by achieving the highest valued property sale in The Villages’ community of Belle Aire, and also by an exceptional transaction in which the home had moved from listing to contract within a twenty-four hour period.

“We received a call from a resident who was already familiar with us having sold a property in Portugal through Engel & Völkers,” recounts Alistair Powell, Managing Broker and Owner. According to Powell, she listed her property with the new shop and on the following day, the home was in contract. “Recognition of what the Engel & Völkers brand and the service we were able to deliver played a major role in the process from beginning to end.”

Powell, who leads the team of seven agents in the new office, had previously been with Hamptons International in the United Kingdom where he became their youngest sales manager at the age of 21 and had his own brokerage at 23 managing an international real estate network that included Panama, the Middle East, London, Shanghai and Manila. He had also been with Sotheby’s International Realty in Miami where he was one of their most visible agents. Powell was the recipient of several awards including the “Young Guns Entrepreneur of the Year” award in 2008. He was most recently recognized as being an entrepreneur and marketer to watch in 2012 as one of Miami’s “Power 30 Under 30”.

The Engel & Völkers team in The Villages represents over 50 years of combined real estate expertise and experience and includes the area’s top agent, Mike Powell who is also Alistair’s father. Mike is a graduate of Oxford and Cornell Universities a former Director of IBM England and was a managing partner in Price Waterhouse Coopers. Since turning his energies and intellect to his full time career as a realtor, he has become a multiple winner of the Realty Executives #1 Sales Person Platinum Award.

For Mike Powell, Engel & Völkers brings a worldwide brand recognition that is essential to their market where properties are advertised internationally, and where inquiries and interest from abroad has increased significantly in recent months. “This new office brings the attention, connections and recognition from the power of its global brand. There are other agencies who might say they are international. We are now among the few who truly are.”

Alistair Powell, adds, “We are proud and happy to be part of Engel & Völkers,” said Alistair Powell and we are dedicated to providing exceptional quality and luxury service at all price points.”
