International real estate brand continues Canadian expansion with its first Oakville brokerage
Engel & Völkers has announced its newest shop in Oakville, Ontario, expanding the company’s global network and premium level of service in Canada. The newly established Engel & Völkers Oakville is led by license partners Scott Russell, Jo-Anne Copeland and Richard Rutkowski, who will also serve as the broker of record. The brokerage will provide leading real estate services to home buyers and sellers in the markets of Oakville, Mississauga, Milton, Burlington and Hamilton.
As part of the Oakville community for more than 20 years, Russell and Copeland open the new shop with an esteemed local reputation, having already established several business ventures and leading successful charitable initiatives. Rutkowski completes the shop’s leadership team, having already been part of the Engel & Völkers network since 2015 as a real estate advisor in Toronto and Los Cabos, Mexico.
“As soon as we were introduced to Engel & Völkers, we saw something special that would greatly benefit our marketplace and knew we wanted to be part of it,” said Russell. “We chose Engel & Völkers because of its high-level approach to service, collaborative global network and its ability to meet the growing demands of luxury buyers and sellers here and abroad—all deliverables that today’s Oakville community needs.”
With its impressive heritage homes and central location between Toronto, Niagara Falls and Toronto Pearson International Airport, Oakville is a prime real estate destination in the Greater Toronto Area. Buyers are attracted to Oakville because of its top ranked private schools, waterfront properties, Lake Ontario marinas and hiking trails. The real estate market in Oakville comprises mostly of detached homes and town houses. It’s a 25-minute train ride to downtown Toronto, allowing residents the choice to work in the city with the option to relax within the enclaves of Oakville’s suburban residential communities.
“Engel & Völkers Oakville is a valuable addition to our North American network of shops,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. “The team’s passion and expertise of the local marketplace coupled with Engel & Völkers’ renowned level of competence and international platform will best cater to the comprehensive needs of Oakville’s real estate buyers and sellers.”
