prospective buyers and persons of independent means worldwide.

Exclusive Property Exposé Our exclusive 4-page property exposé features a more detailed description of your property and its surroundings, along with a large number of photographs. This tool is ideal for larger properties, or those with unique features or an interesting history.

With its headquarters in London, our Private Office division offers a unique and very personal service. Aimed at clients requiring the ultimate in discretion and privacy, this division offers a search and selection service that is second to none. With exclusive access to some of the most desirable properties on the international market, the Private Office is the first port of call for the world’s most discerning buyers.

Private Office Collection This limited-edition brochure does more than full justice to your property over the space of four pages. Here, too, professional and sophisticated photographs of your property play a significant role in ensuring that this premium marketing tool achieves the desired effect. Our experts are happy to explain to you how to present your property in the most professional and persuasive manner possible.

Private Office Exposé This elegant 4-page exposé is produced in line with your personal wishes and aims to showcase your property to our exclusive ‘search and selection’ clients. With a print run of 500 and exceptional print production quality, this exposé is designed to exceed the expectations of even the most seasoned global buyers.

Private Office Mailing These mailings which are sent out to 3,000 affluent, hand-picked recipients from around the world, allow you to target an audience that would otherwise be difficult to reach through conventional marketing channels. Each mailing contains a personal letter, a Private Office Collection and the latest edition of GG, our lifestyle and property magazine.

Property Exposé A high quality, full colour exposé featuring the key facts and features of your property, sent out to prospective buyers and presented in our shops. “For Sale” Sign A tried and tested classic. This sign will be placed on or near your property. Particular advantage: your property will be noticed by passers-by who are not necessarily local to your area, and by latent buyers. Engel & Völkers Global Network The worldwide presence and interconnection of our property shops create ideal marketing opportunities and ensure that your property is showcased throughout the world. Your property will be offered for sale on our Web site – an indispensable way of reaching prospective purchasers swiftly and easily.

Online Portals We also use independent property portals to steer prospective buyers towards your property by means of a link to our home page. Regional Advertisements A small text advertisement featuring the key facts (position, size/living space, fittings and furnishings, purchase price), or an individual advertisement including a photograph and description of your property, will raise awareness of the property and help you to reach a wide target audience. Direct Marketing Mailing your property details to our extensive database will enable you to reach potential buyers directly. Open House An open house event enables us to bring together potential purchasers at your property. These well organised events create a sense of urgency amongst potential buyers.

GG -Advertisement An advertisement in GG – our internationally renowned lifestyle, architecture and property magazine – will help you reach a wider group of potential buyers, beyond your own region and abroad. With a circulation of more than 100,000, the magazine is published quarterly in German, English, Spanish and French. GG-Advertorial A multipage advertorial in our GG magazine is an attractive and distinctive way of showing your property, and all its

unique features in the best possible light. It is the perfect tool for generating interest among discerning readers and prospective buyers. Private Residences This attractive property catalogue contains both first and second homes and has a special focus on the local region. It contains the finest, professional property images to ensure the highest quality is maintained. Home Away from Home This stylish brochure features a collection of the finest second homes from around the world. Published annually, with a global readership of over 120,000, “Home away from home” provides the perfect international showcase for your property.
