1 Create opportunities.
The E&V brand card â€“ making the first connection a lasting one. An introduction begins not with a business card but with a promise to deliver higher quality service and a commitment to exceed expectations. This unique card creates the opportunity to describe our brandâ€˜s core values. It quickly establish-
es your competence to produce exceptional results, an essence of exclusivity, and gives you the chance to express your passion for what you do best. This card makes a strong impression that will keep you on the minds of potential clients.
2 Be original.
The Engel & Völkers story – the origin of extraordinary service. The Engel & Völkers story is like no other--from a specialized boutique agency in Hamburg, Germany to an international brand representing premium properties around the world, and to you, an elite representative providing an exceptional level of service in your local market. It’s a story about our guided expansion throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and North America, to
meet the additional needs of our most valued clients and bringing the prestige of our brand into new markets, including commercial real estate and luxury yachting. And how, in our geographic expansion, we selected only the world’s most desired real estate markets. Every agent who represents the Engel & Völkers brand is part of the story, which is one that our clients want to hear.
3 Be in the best locations.
Our shop concept – beyond a real estate office. It’s the unique design and purpose of our distinctive white shops that are at the very heart of the Engel & Völkers global brand strategy. Throughout the world, Engel & Völkers shops are located in the neighborhoods and streets where our clients live, work and play. They are designed to encourage sidewalk traffic to view our exclusive prop-
erty exposés and to invite potential sellers and buyers to meet our team. Professional conference spaces provide a safe and comfortable environment for client consultations. For world travelers, the sight of an Engel & Völkers shop wherever it may be, brings to mind the same expectation of high-end service and exceptional real estate.
4 Communicate leadership.
Brokerage brochures – announcing that the best is even better. We’ve created a well-crafted brokerage brochure that distinguishes you and your services from competitors in the marketplace and leverages the value of the Engel & Völkers brand. It’s designed to fully communicate your service quality, passion and true international network. Brochures are created with Engel &
Völkers’ unique and elegant design style with pre-written content that can be customized or replaced to explain the benefits in your own words. In the end, with some time and effort, you will have a company brochure to communicate your position in the local market.
5 Distinguish yourself.
Agent brochures – sharing your story. We’ve taken the idea of an agent bio a step further with our professionally written, high quality agent brochures. Your experience, successes and capabilities as a market leader will tell the story of who you are and how you came to rep-
resent the Engel & Völkers brand. We’ll work with you to develop the right tone in your copy, photography and design. This piece also lives electronically and is a valuable addition to your online marketing.
6 Succeed together.
The collaborative approach – merging talent and resources. The U.S. real estate industry is always evolving which means the way we compete for business is always changing. In the past several decades the industry has shifted from broker-centric marketing to agent-centric marketing. Today, however, these approaches are less effective because consumers are demanding more. It’s no longer just about the broker or the agent. Understanding this shift, we’ve developed a revolutionary, collaborative branding approach that sets us apart from our competitors.
Engel & Völkers is the only global real estate company that uses an extraordinary collaborative logo that positions the expertise of its agents with the brand’s expansive reach and proven resources. This collaborative logo represents a merger of your talent and the brand. Of course, this begins in selecting only the best agents in the industry to represent Engel & Völkers. It is an unprecedented approach to real estate in the U.S. and anywhere else in the world where properties are sold.
7 Reach out and truly connect.
Professional stationery – standing the test of time. Technology gives us the ability to connect to more people, faster. Yet, in real estate, it’s still the first impressions and personal connections that make the difference between leaders and followers. That’s why we continue to invest in designing the perfect stationery of the best materials for you to properly introduce yourself and keep in touch with your
most valued clients. Professional business cards, letterhead and envelopes, are all personalized and finished in Engel & Völkers’ distinguished style. For the extra touch, we’ve also created time-honored compliment cards, designed specifically for those important hand-written notes that truly make a statement.
8 Establish your leadership.
E&V signage â€“ declare a higher standard. Our signs are trusted around the world as a symbol of exclusive, highly-valued real estate opportunities. The yard sign is sleek and elegantly designed, complete with its distinct red banister knob, which is a symbol of home. In addition, our sign riders provide the opportunity to attach detailed information, such as status,
features, and property websites. Also, our yard and open house signs link your listings with the prestige of the Engel & VĂślkers brand for homeowners in your market. Signs are produced by proven corporate partners to meet the highest quality standards and can be ordered and delivered on demand, effortlessly.

Presentation pages â€“ adapt, create and impress every time. Because we value personal and highly customized service for our clients, we believe that no two presentations should ever be the same. Address the specific needs of a client using a variety of pages that allow you to perfect your presentation. Easily create pieces based on high-
quality templates using compelling, predrafted copy. The quality of the overall design delivers your marketing and pricing strategy, the value of the brand and the higher level of service that is consistent with Engel & VĂślkers.

expertise and leading edge standards. We’ve developed content with our elegant and distinct branding and leveraged the tablet’s vibrant graphics capabilities for you to deliver stunning presentations for your most tech-savvy clients.
13 Engage your clients.
The E&V Home Journal – a home selling exercise like no other. A seller’s personal connection to a home provides insight that will elevate your ability to represent it on the market. The Home Journal is an extraordinary tool used to capture a homeowner’s favorite features and fond memories of their property and surrounding neighborhood,
in an intimate, secure and creative way— through writing. What is revealed can be used to add life and color to brochures, ads and web listings. Participating in the exercise will also allow the seller to experience your service on a deeper level.
14 Position your listings.
Our exclusive property exposé – commanding attention with detail and imagery. Showcase premier listings locally and around the world with our exclusive property exposés that combine visuallystriking photography and a compelling narrative to connect homes with the right buyers. Each exposé is digitally produced on high-quality paper to best express the value of the property on
each page. Exposés can be created and ordered online and are archived for convenient access and reprinting. Exposés are also available through GO!Connect in formats for window displays, crossselling, showings, open houses and digital distribution.
15 Be selective.
Private Office – our reserved brand of service for high net-worth clients. For more than 30 years Engel & Völkers has been a select provider of high-end luxury real estate service worldwide. We’ve taken the highest category of service, which is reserved for our most distinguished properties and clientele and we perfected it. Private Office allows you the opportunity to submit highly valued properties to be shared with cli-
ents who include celebrities, dignitaries, international business leaders who are also personal contacts of Christian Völkers, the founder and CEO of Engel & Völkers. While our Private Office has been imitated, this level of service and access is what makes this a true and valuable offering to the most select market in real estate.

Flat screen monitors prominently display select list-
ing in high definition and include pertinent sales information such as location and price, reaching potential buyers who have already shown interest just by watching. As Shop TV viewers, fellow Advisors also keep up to date on international properties.
19 Offer maximum exposure.
Online exposure – presence on the most visited search sites. For virtually all home buyers, the search for your listings begins online. We offer unique listing exposure opportunities through our strategic alliances and our partnership with ListHub, the leading provider of online listing data. Through our relationships with the Top 10 most visited real estate search sites, including REALTOR.com, Zillow, Trulia, HGTV’S Frontdoor.com, and Yahoo Homes, Engel & Völkers’ listings re-
ceive preferential placement when possible and include our distinct branding and additional property details. Also, while many companies “syndicate” their listings, our online exposure is part of a larger strategy in which leads generated from these websites are captured and managed through our E-Lead Routing System, an essential part of our GO!Connect platform.
20 Go further.
Cooperative advertising – opportunities to reach more. Though statistics report that a greater number of property searches begin online, we continue to work with select print publications to reach your target market. Our cooperative advertising makes it easy to include your listing in ads in the most highly respected and widely read publications in the world. It also allows you to benefit from pre-negotiated subsidized rates. The publications we choose connect our brand positioning with titles
that have similar recognition to high-end quality. By including your listings with others in the Engel & Völkers network in this way, you are taking part in advertising the breadth of our offerings under a single brand, which strengthens your position in the local market. Here are some media partnerships that will effectively position you for attracting future listing:
International Herald Tribune
The New York Times
The Wall Street Journal
The Los Angeles Times
The New Yorker

40 Joining a global brand.
Global reach – gain real access to international buyers. According to the National Association of Realtors, more than $82 billion worth of homes in the U.S. were sold to international buyers in the 12-month period ending in March 2012. Global market conditions and the rise of new booming economies in other countries have widened the audience for potential buyers within your local market. To win new listings, it is now essential to show your ability to draw buyers from abroad. The key to Engel & Völkers international growth strategy has always been to open and operate in markets where we know our clients want to be--the most desirable locations in the world. We’ve also established our shop concept as a successful part of this strategy, maintaining our consistent brand design globally so that we are easily recognizable and trusted by our international real estate clients. As a U.S. real estate agent, there has never been more of an advantage in joining the Engel & Völkers brand.
There are frequent opportunities to build relationships with other Advisors from our 400+ locations in 36 countries throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and South America. We utilize our network to provide opportunities to advertise listings in international publications and to display exposés on main streets around the world. Our Engel & Völkers U.S. Advisors have received invitations and have attended home shows abroad. They have attended training in workshops on foreign real estate markets and have also shared their own knowledge regarding the U.S. market. Similar training and tools are easily accessible to convey your unparalleled international capabilities as part of your listing presentations. As an Engel & Völkers Advisor, your clients will be better positioned to benefit from the current international real estate market where a potential buyer could be in your local market or from a neighborhood half a world away.
