Engel & Völkers North America celebrated the official launch of its first Caribbean office with a ribbon cutting and grand opening event, after the European-based premium real estate firm merged with Capital Realty Cayman.
“The official opening of Engel & Völkers Cayman Islands represents an enormous milestone for our firm, as it not only extends our footprint to the Caribbean but is also Engel & Völkers North America’s 100th shop,” said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America.
Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, more than 180 guests attended a reception at Abacus Camana Bay.
“The Cayman Islands is a safe oasis that continually attracts those drawn to friendly locale and a laidback, yet luxurious, quality of life,” said Heidi Kiss, co-owner of Engel & Völkers Cayman Islands. “As the area continues to become the go-to Caribbean destination for buyers and sellers both from North America and across the globe, Engel & Völkers Cayman Islands will best meet their comprehensive real estate needs.”
Engel & Völkers’ main office is located at No. 7 Tropic Centre in 13 Earth Close.
“Engel & Völkers provides the well-connected global network and key technology and tools that will perfectly complement our marketplace intel to provide a top-tier level of service to the diverse range of buyers drawn to the Cayman Islands’ robust real estate market,” said Jon Kiss, co-owner of Engel & Völkers Cayman Islands.
The group currently operates a global network of more than 8,000 real estate advisers in more than 700 brokerages spanning 32 countries across five continents.
