International luxury real estate firm continues to expand Northeast footprint in vibrant coastal city
Engel & Völkers, a European-based premium real estate brand, announced today the opening of its first Long Beach New York shop, bringing the firm’s comprehensive global services to real estate buyers and sellers of the area. The shop will bring nine agents to the new Engel & Völkers Long Beach New York, further solidifying the firm’s presence in the dynamic New York marketplace. Leah Tozer, Sonia Dale and Adam Butter, long time residents of Long Beach will manage the shop and together bring 30 years of experience working in the market. The team is highly involved within the community and is a sponsor of this year’s annual Arts in the Plaza events. “With its beautiful beach-front homes, diverse artistic community, and array of beachfront events, Long Beach offers the ideal location to further expand Engel & Völkers’ rapidly growing footprint in the Northeast,” said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America. “As Long Beach begins to receive increased interest from the global real estate marketplace, Engel & Völkers’ renowned level of exclusivity will provide real estate buyers and sellers with the highest possible level of service.” Engel & Völkers Long Beach New York, with a main office situated at 58 West Park Avenue, will provide leading services for buyers and sellers of premier properties in Long Beach and its surrounding communities. Located 23 miles from Manhattan on a barrier island off the South Shore of Long Island, Long Beach has begun to see a growing number of foreign buyers drawn to the island’s eclectic mix of coastal activities, including beach tennis tournaments, free concert series on the beach, surfing competitions and artistic events, such as the Long Beach International Film Festival and annual fine arts shows. “Long Beach has long been one of New York’s best kept secrets, with pristine stretches of white sand beaches and a closer proximity to New York City than the Hamptons,” said Leah Tozer of Engel & Völkers Long Beach. “As buyers from a variety of markets worldwide are increasingly drawn to the area and its real estate offerings, Engel & Völkers’ esteemed reputation, connected global network and services will aid us in best serving their real estate needs.” With the opening of the Austin, Houston, Beverly Hills, and Concord and, in Canada, Victoria, Calgary, Toronto and York, Engel & Völkers continues to strengthen its presence in the premium real estate market across North America.
