Lisa Sutton and her business partner, Cathey Kuo, will join forces with Charles Profeta of Engel & Völkers Henderson to further expand the global luxury real estate brand’s presence throughout Las Vegas
Engel & Völkers today announced that Lisa Song Sutton and Cathey Kuo, former brokerage owners with Christie’s International Real Estate, have partnered with Charles Profeta, current broker and managing partner of Engel & Völkers Henderson, to expand the brand’s presence in Las Vegas. Sutton, an attorney turned entrepreneur and local real estate investor, has scaled multiple 7 and 8 figure companies before starting the Elite Homes brokerage. Kuo served as partner and co-owner of Elite Homes and will continue in her role as Sutton’s business partner in this new venture, drawing on her many years of experience as a million-dollar real estate broker, investor and entrepreneur. Expanding on Engel & Völkers’ existing footprint in the area, Sutton, Kuo and Profeta will serve the markets of Las Vegas, Henderson, Summerlin and Mount Charleston.
“We are thrilled with Lisa and Cathey’s decision to join Engel & Völkers,” said Anthony Hitt, president and CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. “Their move is a testament to the power of our brand and the experiential nature of our service that continues to resonate with real estate professionals and clients alike. Collectively, Lisa, Cathey and Charles will lead a tremendous force in our growth within the greater Las Vegas market.”
Las Vegas and its surrounding areas offer a variety of homes for all types of buyers, ranging from lavish golf course mansions, waterfront homes on Lake Sahara and Lake Las Vegas, large log cabin mountain retreats in Mount Charleston, penthouses on the Las Vegas strip, and everything in between. The city also has a robust investors’ market, where short-term rentals are allowed in various on or near-strip condo-tel properties, which allows owners to monetize their properties when they’re not visiting Las Vegas. Beyond the iconic strip, the area also offers residents hiking, biking and world class skiing just 20-45 minutes away.
“Las Vegas is full of one-off brokerages with 100% commission models that offer zero help and support to their real estate advisors, or larger brands that do not focus on the client and advisor experience,” said Sutton. “As part of Engel & Völkers, we are able to focus on what’s best for our clients and advisors, and deliver five-star service backed by the resources, tools and reach of a globally-renowned real estate network.”
The Engel & Völkers Henderson location is located in The District in Green Valley. The Las Vegas location is in Spring Valley at Rainbow and Patrick, and the Summerlin location will open in 2023.
