Global luxury real estate brand lands in the destination region minutes from Ottawa
Engel & Völkers announces its newest shop is opening in Chelsea, Québec. This destination region is located approximately two hours from Montréal and minutes from Ottawa, Canada’s capital. Under the leadership of License Partners Jeremy Spilkin and Louis-Philippe Pidgeon, the real estate shop will provide its signature services to home buyers and sellers across the Outaouais region in places such as Chelsea, Aylmer, Hull, Cantley and Gatineau.
“Engel & Völkers is ready to hit the ground running servicing Ottawa’s neighbouring regions. Outaouais is emerging as one of Canada’s rising real estate hotspots. Growing demand for property outside of urban centers is intensifying buyer interest,” says Anthony Hitt, president & CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “Jeremy and Louis-Philippe are local residential experts with an unwavering commitment to providing personalized services to the promising market of Outaouais. We are thrilled to step in as the first international luxury brokerage serving clients in this region.”
“Outaouais has quickly grown to become a sought-after destination as we see more buyers looking for more land or square footage for their money. People in Gatineau and Ottawa are also eyeing this region for its very diverse real estate portfolio from older heritage properties on large lots to prestigious waterfront properties and anywhere in between. The Outaouais region offers true luxury in all its shapes and forms and a wonderful lifestyle closer to nature for its residents,” says Jeremy Spilkin, License Partner, Engel & Völkers Outaouais.
“We are excited to bring Engel & Volkers to buyers and sellers in Outaouais,” says Louis-Phillippe Pidgeon, License Partner, Engel & Völkers Outaouais. “With Engel & Volkers’ unmatched
international reach and top-of-the-line marketing tools, we’re filling the gap in the high end market segment and connecting Outaouais into a network of global luxury buyers and sellers.”
The culturally diverse community of anglophones and francophones coupled with the proximity to Ottawa and surrounding lakes makes Outaouais a popular place to live. It is home to year-round landmark amenities like Gatineau Park, Nordik Spa and the Canadian Museum of History.
Both partners are bilingual, ex-military officers of the Canadian Armed Forces and are a part of the National Military Relocation Network founded by Spilkin. They joined Engel & Völkers as part of the Ottawa Central shop in 2017.
