Global luxury real estate brand focuses strategic growth in Alberta with entrance into national park destination and new leadership in Canmore.
Engel & Völkers today announced its newest shop opening in Banff. Bow Valley Realty Ltd. will now do business as Engel & Völkers Banff Canmore under the continued leadership of license partner Mark Dalton. The newly established Engel & Völkers Banff Canmore will provide services to home buyers and sellers in the Bow Valley area, including Banff, Canmore, Harvie Heights, Exshaw, Dead Man’s Flats and Lac Des Arcs.
“With Banff and Canmore becoming more attractive to domestic and international visitors, I needed to differentiate my business and align with a brand recognized worldwide for its best-in-class real estate experiences, which I’ve found with Engel & Völkers,” says Dalton. “What luxury means to our local clientele is changing, and Engel & Völkers allows us to deliver the elevated level of personalized service that our robust market needs.”
Banff and Canmore offer diverse real estate, from single family detached houses to luxury properties. Banff’s prestigious location within the Banff National Park provides limited housing inventory, resulting in high demand from buyers, consistent housing prices and stable property investment opportunities. In Canmore, many short-term investment opportunities allow for a range of options for buyers. Domestic buyers from Eastern Canada as well as international investors from the United Kingdom, United States and Asia favour Canmore as a destination for vacation homes. The city is especially known for its scenic surroundings, recreational offerings, luxury amenities and abundant hospitality.
Engel & Völkers Banff Canmore is currently located in the historic Crag Cabin within the Bison Courtyard, with plans to open a second shop in the next year.
“Banff is a rare real estate hot spot for buyers, and Canmore is steadily growing as a top vacation destination,” says Anthony Hitt, president & CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “As Engel & Völkers continues to expand across the Americas, we thoughtfully partner with only the best real estate leaders in select local markets across Canada, and Mark certainly meets this criteria. We look forward to Engel & Völkers’ new leadership and presence in Banff and Canmore as Mark and his team deliver white-glove services to these markets known for their first-class amenities and natural beauty.”
Engel & Völkers operates a global network of over 11,000 real estate professionals in more than 30 countries. For more information, visit banffcanmore.evrealestate.com.
