Michel Naud Awarded Engel & Völkers Private Office Designation for Exemplary Real Estate Service & Production
Mont-Tremblant, Québec, December 12th 2018 – Engel & Völkers today announced that Michel Naud has been officially inducted into the luxury real estate company’s Private Office network, successfully passing the company’s ultra-competitive vetting and nomination process for inclusion.
Naud is among an elite group of Engel & Völkers advisors worldwide to be awarded with this distinction, which recognizes extraordinary business results supported by competency and providing the highest level of client service. Out of more than 10,000 real estate professionals who represent the Engel & Völkers brand in over 30 countries worldwide, Naud is among less than 100 advisors selected to carry the title Private Office Advisor in the Americas.
“Engel & Völkers attracts the best agents in each market we serve, so as a member of Private Office, Michel represents true exceptionality,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. “Our Private Office Advisors are not just top producers—they unfailingly offer an incomparable experience for their clients.”
To qualify for Private Office, advisors within the Engel & Völkers network must be nominated by their broker, meet baseline criteria for transaction volume and show consistency in their high year-over-year production numbers. To assess their market expertise and notable service quality as real estate professionals, clients are also asked to comment on their service experience. Lastly, nominees are submitted to a selection committee in the Americas that decides which candidates meet all requirements for final submission to the head of Private Office in Hamburg, Germany.
Held at Engel & Volkers Americas Headquarters in New York City, Naud was formally inducted at the invitation-only Private Office event on December 6th 2018, celebrating Private Office Advisors with an evening of networking, a formal ceremony and reception.
As a Private Office Advisor, Naud gains access to Private Office-specific marketing assets, choice opportunities catering to the brand’s global ultra-high net worth clients and is the preferred contact in his market for international referrals.
“It is an honor to have been selected to be a Private Office Advisor,” said Naud. “The Engel & Völkers name and reputation carries a high level of prestige around the world as a promise of outstanding real estate service and expertise, and I look forward to representing at this level.”
