Engel & Völkers announces new shop in West Hamilton

 Luxury real estate brand continues to grow in historic southern Ontario region

Globally renowned real estate brand Engel & Völkers has announced the opening of its latest shop in Hamilton. Located in the scenic southern Ontario region, the shop will cater to the surrounding areas, including Ancaster, Dundas, West Flamborough, Waterdown and Westdale. License partner Richard Rutkowski will lead operations at Engel & Völkers West Hamilton. 

With more than two decades of experience in the real estate industry, Rutkowski has been affiliated with Engel & Völkers since 2015. With the inauguration of the West Hamilton location, Rutkowski returns to his roots, growing up in West Hamilton where he completed high school and played on the Dundas Blues hockey team. Rutkowski previously served as a city councillor and was named Business Person of the Year in the Ottawa area. 

"Canada continues to be an existing growth market for Engel & Völkers, and our expansion into West Hamilton demonstrates how our brand leverages our existing network while attracting new talent and opportunities," said Anthony Hitt, president and CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. "With Richard's profound expertise and unwavering passion for real estate and the Engel & Völkers brand, the shop is poised to be the top choice for premium property services in Hamilton."

“We are thrilled to introduce Engel & Völkers’ recognizable shop design and brand philosophy to the region. Home buyers and sellers working with our shop will benefit from our global reach and cooperation,” says Rutkowski. “Having been raised in West Hamilton, it’s wonderful to have come full circle and establish the area's premier full-service luxury brokerage. Engel & Völkers is set to meet the demand in this market with our network of dedicated and skilled advisors.”

The area hosts an extensive high-net worth demographic that is, in many ways, a secret to the residents and sees many families looking for an upscale community with green space for their children to enjoy. Whether seeking a cozy starter home or a luxurious estate, the Hamilton region and surrounding areas have something to offer everyone. A short 45-minute drive to major cities like Toronto, Niagara Falls, Kitchener and Waterloo, the area allows homeowners to be close to bustling cities while maintaining a small-town life feel.
