New York, NY (October 15, 2013) – For more than 25 years, the printed version of GG Magazine has reported on exclusive properties and a wide variety of topics related to architecture, design, art, travel, fascinating personalities and fashion. The property and lifestyle magazine of the Engel & Völkers Group is now available online, complete with its own website. "For a quarter of a century, GG has been reflecting our core values of exclusivity, competence and passion. That philosophy is now carried on through the GG website," explained Christian Völkers, CEO of Engel & Völkers AG and publisher of GG. The magazine's online portal offers readers a familiar blend of editorial content and features. Recurrent elements also include property details for the most attractive real estate in the world from the Engel & Völkers network. The printed version of GG is published in house on a quarterly basis with a total circulation of 150,000 copies in 37 countries.

Integrated social media buttons and share functions will enable readers to share any articles quickly and easily in their social networks. A version in responsive web design for tablet PCs and i-Phones completes the GG online concept.
