Engel & Völkers today announced the opening of its latest real estate shop location. The newly established Engel & Völkers Huntsville is the result of a group of area real estate professionals coming together from six different agencies to build a team of local experts specializing in luxury throughout the Tennessee Valley, with a particular eye toward creating an elevated client experience. Led by license partner Tonya Thomas and managing broker Jenny Shaneyfelt, the shop will serve more than 19 counties in Alabama representative of the Tennessee Valley.
“Huntsville is increasingly establishing itself as a flourishing hub of technology and innovation,” said Anthony Hitt, president and CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “Home to the fourth largest research park in the world, the Tennessee Valley continues to draw international researchers and innovators in engineering, robotics, bio-tech and medicine. With a thriving job market and relatively low cost of living, Huntsville ranks as one of the best places to live in the U.S. and a top city for career opportunities. With Tonya and Jenny sharing our commitment to providing an unparalleled level of personal client service driven by true market expertise, they are the right leaders to oversee this expansion.”
Engel & Völkers Huntsville is located at Bridge Street Town Centre in the heart of Cummings Research Park. The housing market in the Tennessee Valley is varied, boasting some of Alabama’s oldest homes in ten National Register historic districts, quaint bungalows, mid-century subdivisions, private communities with luxury amenities, lake and riverfront properties, as well as new construction planned communities. Residents enjoy a mild year-round climate, facilitating an active outdoor lifestyle complemented by many trails, parks, lakes, rivers and mountains. Perhaps most notably, Huntsville is the birthplace of the U.S. Space Program and continues to draw visitors from around the world who participate in Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. As the region has evolved, it has also welcomed a number of local craft breweries, eateries and arts districts.
