Engel & Völkers named top real estate company in Germany for the first time


Mar 11, 2013

Hamburg, 4 September 2009. Engel & Völkers has emerged as the clear frontrunner in this year’s ranking of German real estate companies! The leading industry magazine “Immobilienmanager” compiles its ranking of German property firms annually, taking into consideration residential property realtors, commercial real estate brokers and universal real estate companies. Engel & Völkers came in first place for the first time for 2008 total revenues, moving up the list from second place in the previous year to the top spot.

Besides total revenues, the “Makler-Ranking” is also based on various other criteria including total transaction volume, business division, sales and leaseholding. Engel & Völkers led the ranking in no less than four categories:
  • Total net revenues in 2008 (previous year: 2nd place)
  • Net commission revenues in 2008 from commercial real estate sales in Germany (previous year: 1st place)
  • Total transaction volume in 2008 from residential property sales in Germany (previous year: 3rd place)
  • Net revenues in 2008 from residential property leaseholding (previous year: 1st place)
CEO Christian Völkers is delighted by this historic takeover at the top of the ranking: “I am truly proud of Engel & Völkers’ superb performance in this year’s “Makler-Ranking”. Besides our expansion in Germany, this is an incentive for us to drive forward our international growth as well.”
