As more consumers seek luxury dwellings in burgeoning midwest markets, the global real estate brand opens its latest location in the heart of America
Engel & Völkers announced today the opening of its newest shop in Columbus, OH, led by license partners Brad Winter, Paige Winter and Elias Pappan. Paige and Brad Winter are lifelong Ohio residents who bring over a decade of real estate, business and leadership experience to the new venture. They are experienced real estate professionals specializing in serving home buyers and sellers in Central Ohio and are incredibly well-versed in the nuances of the Columbus housing market. Pappan is a seasoned business entrepreneur with extensive experience owning and operating multiple businesses in the commercial and residential real estate spaces, including construction, acquisition and investments. Under their leadership, Engel & Völkers Columbus consists of real estate professionals serving homebuyers and sellers in Columbus, Ohio, and the surrounding suburbs.
“Engel & Völkers recently issued a report on the growing popularity of America’s heartland markets as consumers look to establish primary and secondary residences in affordable, community-oriented places that now offer many of the same lifestyle amenities as coastal markets,” said Anthony Hitt, president and CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “Columbus, with its diverse neighborhoods, highly-rated restaurants, thriving arts and culture scene and over 50,000 acres of parks and water, exemplifies the draw of the midwest. Brad, Paige and Elias are known to be forward-thinking, digital-savvy advocates for their real estate clients and as such, are the perfect partners to introduce Engel & Völkers into this growing market.”
Engel & Völkers Columbus is located in Italian Village, just north of Downtown Columbus and east of the Short North, an area known for fostering new businesses, artists and restaurants in the community. The real estate market offers a vast array of architectural and housing styles for residents, from brick Italianate and Queen Anne homes in the city to colonials, craftsman or Cape Cod homes in Columbus’ sprawling suburbs. Buyers will also find a resurgence of new development across the region, which has arisen alongside the growing entrepreneurial and artistic spirit taking hold of Downtown Columbus.
“There is no better time to affiliate with Engel & Völkers,” said Brad Winter, license partner. “Real estate is going through a massive shift as consumers demand more from the industry. They want to be educated, informed and serviced at a higher level than ever before. This is how we have run our business since day one and aligning with a global brand that shares our values will only allow us to serve Columbus residents at a higher, more personal level.”
“Being part of Engel & Völkers will not only allow us to elevate the real estate experience for Columbus consumers but it will also provide a home for our advisors to expand their skills, network and global reach,” added Paige Winter, license partner. “The brand’s greatest value is its network, having both a domestic foothold and global presence. This will enable us to provide exceptional choice and opportunity for both our clients and team.”
