THE FIRST VIRTUAL SHOWROOM IN THE REAL ESTATE SECTOR

11/4/2021

The past year has been challenging for all of us: Lockdown, social distancing and widespread uncertainty among the population have shown how incredibly important online communication channels are. Nevertheless, we highly value personal contact with our clients and would still like to be able to offer you the special experience of going to one of our E&V shops and enjoying the first-class Engel & Völkers service. We have sought to combine both and are pleased to present our first purely digital real estate shop: the virtual Engel & Völkers showroom for Greece!

Hamburg - The first virtual showroom in the real estate sector

 

The Engel & Völkers shop experience: Anywhere and anytime thanks to live chat

The virtual showroom can be conveniently explored via keyboard and mouse or, most spectacularly, with VR glasses on your mobile phone.

The sidebar quickly and easily takes you to the individual rooms:

Click on the interactive dots to get more information or to be redirected to the relevant Engel & Völkers website.

However, all matters relating to real estate, whether buying or selling, naturally require personal, individual advice. These too are provided in the usual quality in our virtual showroom: 

If you have any questions, you can click on the speech bubble in the bottom right corner of the screen or the reception counter to start the live chat. This will not only provide you with further information on the matter in question, but will also direct you, if necessary, to one of our real estate agents, who will be happy to assist you via live chat or video call. Live chats can then be easily saved so that you can resume or continue them at a later time.

We want to offer you access to all our first-class services in our virtual showroom - regardless of your personal location.

“We hit every bump we could possibly hit this year and somehow the car still made it to the other side,” said Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman who homered and drove in two runs in Game 6. “It’s just an incredible group.” (via braves.com)

"Now that the last obstacle has been hurdled, the Braves can forever proudly remember the year they overcame significant loss, slayed the Atlanta narrative and celebrated what might be the most satisfying World Series title in franchise history." (Mark Bowman via braves.com)

MIAMI PROPERTY MARKET: HIGH DEMAND FOR REAL ESTATE IN PREMIUM SEGMENT

10/27/2021

 

The city of Miami in the sunshine state of Florida is one of the most attractive residential markets in the world. Regarded as the financial capital of Latin America, Miami ranks as the third largest city on the US East Coast, located on the southern tip of Florida, combining a dynamic economy with glamorous living. Miami attracts residents with its tropical climate, dream beaches and cultural diversity. „Miami has seen an unprecedented boom in first class home sales since the start of the pandemic, and there is no sign of a slowdown. As we progressed through 2020, prospective buyers were tempted by open space, warmer climate, and premium luxury amenities. The market for luxury, single family homes and condos saw prices rocket by over 20 percent in the first quarter of 2021. Beyond tax benefits and increased income, Covid-19 strengthened our clients’ desire to relocate and seek domicile in Miami on a permanent basis. Exceptional quality of life and great economical values is contributing to the housing demand. As large finance and tech companies are expanding or relocating to Miami and South Florida from high tax states, we are beckoning a new period of economic growth and prosperity,” says Magnus Jennemyr, Licence Partner at Engel & Völkers Miami Coconut Grove.

Discover the treasures of secret Majorca

10/12/2021

 

Majorca’s limestone mountains, spectacular beaches and abundant sunshine make it a firm favourite for holidaymakers. And away from bustling the Palma resorts that might first spring to mind, you’ll find a relaxed haven that few know of – a hidden Majorca. Olive groves give way to rustic villages and sun-drenched vineyards, where you can experience the traditional rhythms of the local lifestyle.

Hamburg - Discover the treasures of secret Majorca

Secluded beaches to unwind

Avoid the crowds at well-known Majorca beaches like Cala Torta and Playa de Muro in favour of hidden hideaways. There are plenty of lesser-known beaches where you can soak up the sun in solitude, one of the best being Cala de Boquer. Positioned four kilometres away from Puero de Pollenca, you can enjoy the views of the Tramuntana mountain range as you hike to this secluded rocky bay with its crystal-clear waters. Another secret Majorca beach to add to your list is Cala Castell, which restricts visitors to just 20 per day. You’ll need to ask for permission before visiting, but the small amount of paperwork ensures you’re likely to have this wild cliffside cove all to yourself – perfect for romantic picnics.

 

Traditional villages lost in time

Charming villages dot both coastlines and interior, inviting visitors to head back in time to a hidden Majorca. Venture to Valldemossa, once named by composer Frédéric Chopin as the world’s most beautiful place. Tucked away in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range, this stone village retains its 13th-century monastery and is surrounded by verdant pine forests. For those interested in indulging in Majorca’s culinary traditions, Binissalem doesn’t disappoint. This sleepy village is located in the heart of a wine growing region, and most Majorca restaurants serve local vintages produced in Binissalem. Dotted with orange trees and saffron-tinted homes, this quaint village also allows visitors to hop between vineyards to sample wine and local delicacies like almond cakes.

Three Gorgeous Homes in Golf Communities

10/4/2021

At home, time slows down and the stresses of everyday life cease to exist. Here, families spend leisure time resting, relaxing, and winding down for the day. Where better to do so than on a golf course? Golf communities are ideal for those who enjoy the sport, aspire to play, or simply love to watch. The peaceful and picturesque setting of a course’s bright greenery is the perfect backdrop for a dream home.

Explore these beautiful properties, all located in premier golf communities, perfect for any avid golfer.

Clearwater, Florida

Inside the home’s custom wood double doors, a stunning, open floor plan showcases marble flooring, tray crown molding, a fireplace, plantation shutters, and a remodeled kitchen with quality wood cabinetry, sparkling granite counters, and professional appliances. If one kitchen isn’t enough, outside, the entertainment area has an additional kitchen, as well as a gleaming saltwater pool, open patio, sea walled pool deck, and a private, brackish water lake. The property effortlessly combines city and resort lifestyles; only a short drive away from Tampa and St. Petersburg, it spans 1.2 acres of private, picturesque grounds, featuring breathtaking views of bright, vast greens.

Located on the world-class Feather Sound Country Club, this beautiful 6,000 square foot Tampa Bay home is one of only 20 residences in the luxurious Eagle Point Community. A Joe Lee Signature Championship Golf Course sits at the heart of the country club, with an inviting clubhouse and year-round amenities. The course is just steps away from the property and is known as one of the most enjoyable and challenging layouts in the Tampa Bay area. Flowing around serene, natural lakes and boasting six different tee boxes for players of all levels, the course is truly one of a kind.

Park City, Utah

Featuring staggering panoramic views of a well-known Park City canyon, Villa del Alce is the ultimate mountain estate. This European-inspired property can entertain up to 100 guests with its spacious open kitchen, authentic Italian wood-burning pizza oven, and game room featuring a bar, fireplace, pool table, and a terrace seating area just outside. A unique grotto with decorative stone walls and wooden beams houses a mystical 12-person hot tub. Other amenities include a waterfall, a year-round outdoor dining area, a guest home, and a Kaleidoscope movie system.

Situated in the resort lifestyle community Promontory Ranch Club, members also have access to two golf courses, as well as spas, tennis courts, ski cabins, and a private beach. Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the Painted Valley Golf Course was ranked the second-best in Utah by Golf Digest Magazine. The course boasts over 8,000 yards and flows alongside a stream winding through Promontory’s high-altitude valleys. The second course, designed by Pete Dye, ranked third best in Utah. It takes dramatic advantage of Promontory’s rugged hills and canyons. In addition to these two courses, the home even has its own golf simulator for private practice.

College Station, Texas

Right on the number five fairway of Pebble Creek Golf Course in College Station Texas, this gorgeous home features views of the course from every room. A grand entry flows into a spectacular open floor plan including a formal dining area, gourmet kitchen, and casual breakfast area. With five bedrooms and seven bathrooms as well as a private office presenting stunning shelving, space is far from lacking. The palatial owner’s suite features a private entrance to the back patio, dual vanities, a large walk-in shower, and separate closets.

In addition to its half-acre lot, the property sits right on the course, making it feel even more expansive. Lakes, creeks, and woodlands provide a beautiful backdrop for the Ken-Dye-designed 18-hole championship golf course. The surrounding environment blends seamlessly with the course’s design to produce a unique golf experience filled with both challenge and enjoyment. Due to its four different locations, yardages range from 4,991 to nearly 7,000. Its multiple tees, rolling fairways, gently tiered greens, and unique holes make the Pebble Creek Golf Course a special place to play for those of all skill levels.

Design Trends to Try: Maximalism

8/4/2021

Maximalist styles have garnered attention since the Victorian era. This flamboyant aesthetic mixes different shapes and patterns, complex furnishings, dynamic wallpapers, and ornate objects. In the 20th century, interior decorator Mario Buattaenhanced and popularized the style. Nicknamed the “King of Clutter”, he was known to incorporate velvets, tassels, and other traditional elements into his work.  
In the early 1980s, maximalists reimagined which shapes, sizes, and textures could be incorporated in a room, creating more daring and unconventional designs. The striking popularity of minimalist home decor has overshadowed maximalism throughout the past decade. Now, however, maximalism’s appeal is growing as consumers’ mindsets shift from “less is more” to “more is more”. 


Bold, busy, big, and bright, the eclectic design style requires different colors, patterns, finishes, and trimmings to be meticulously yet messily combined. A careful mixture of unique pieces will result in a vibrant yet charming room filled with a variety of colors, textures, and styles. Key elements of maximalist design include statement pieces, saturated colors, and unique shapes. Designers should also consider layering to unite contrasting components, repeating patterns, featuring multiples of items, or blending different styles like classic, bohemian, or modern.

The maximalist aesthetic allows homeowners to incorporate their own method, personality, and sentiment into rooms in a way that minimalism does not. As people’s complex tastes evolve, home decor can and should embody that change and intricacy. The cherished items which are attached to meaningful memories used in this design style make distinguish it from more simple aesthetics. By incorporating the old and the new, the busy and the simple, and the bright and the gloomy, maximalism creates stories on its own. 
Engel & Völkers Americas has compiled five tips to assist anyone looking to max out their style.
