Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 at 3:46pm Engel & Völkers


Evergreen Realty San Diego joins the luxury real estate brand’s global network as Engel & Völkers San Diego Ranch-Coast, bringing enhanced services and global exposure to the Southern California market

Engel & Völkers, the leading international luxury real estate brand, today announced that Evergreen Realty in Solana Beach, California, is the newest addition to its North American network and will provide its global standard of high-end real estate service in the market as Engel & Völkers San Diego Ranch-Coast. Michael Hannon and Quentin Smith are the owners of Engel & Völkers San Diego Ranch-Coast. The new shop serves home sellers and buyers throughout North County San Diego, including the towns of Del Mar, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas and Carlsbad. “With Engel & Völkers San Diego Ranch-Coast, we are well positioned to serve clients in the area as well as the growing number of second home owners coming from throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico,” said Anthony Hitt, chief executive officer of Engel & Völkers North America. Executive vice president of Engel & Völkers North America, Tom Kunz, adds, “Michael and Quentin and their team represent well over 100 years of real estate industry experience. Their professionalism and high standards of service quality make them the ideal representatives of our brand in this market.” Engel & Völkers San Diego Ranch-Coast will operate from its Solana Beach office location with plans to open future Engel & Völkers shops in Encinitas, Carlsbad and Rancho Santa Fe. Solana Beach and its neighboring communities in particular are enjoying a real estate renaissance due to the wide selection of beachfront, golf course and hillside homes and condominiums. With desirable neighborhoods, schools, easy access to downtown San Diego and Orange County and some of the most sought after beaches and weather in the world, they are ideally located for local, national and international buyers. “We are extremely proud to be part of the Engel & Völkers brand because of their commitment to quality and their international prestige,” said Smith. “The marketing tools and technology platform, as well as the distinctive culture and luxury lifestyle that they offer is unlike anything we have seen in this market.” This announcement from Engel & Völkers comes one month following the opening of its Engel & Völkers Las Vegas brokerage as the brand continues its expansion efforts throughout the U.S. and Canada.
