More than 200 guests, including CEOs of Station Mont-Tremblant Resort, and Engel & Völkers North America, in attendance.
Mont-Tremblant, Quebec (April 2, 2016) – Engel & Völkers, a European-based premium real estate firm, officially launched its newest premium brokerage in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, marking the occasion with a grand opening celebration held at their shop located in the heart of the pedestrian village at 130 Chemin de Kandahar, Mont-Tremblant, QC J8E 1E2 and attended by more than 200 guests.
The grand opening began with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America, who was joined by Patrice Malo, president and CEO of Station Mont Tremblant and Steven Lafave, a Playground Tremblant veteran and real estate market leader, and now the Managing Director of the new Engel & Völkers Tremblant.
“The grand opening of Engel & Völkers Tremblant celebrates a valuable addition to our North American network, as the new shop is situated in an ideal location to expand our footprint in the region and to meet the needs of our clients who enjoy the active outdoor living the market has to offer,” said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers North America. “Steven and his team are true market experts and have demonstrated the commitment to quality client service that defines the Engel & Völkers culture.”
The grand opening comes as an alliance between the leading international real estate firm and Playground Tremblant, a resort real estate brokerage firm and subsidiary of Intrawest, one of North America’s premiere mountain resort and adventure companies and owner of Station Mont Tremblant Resort.
“Joining Engel & Völkers allows us to provide our clients with unprecedented international exposure through their worldwide network of shops and expert advisors,” said Lafave. “We are so excited to be commemorating this partnership with Engel & Völkers Tremblant and to be delivering world class service in this world class market.”
“Mont-Tremblant is known for its skiing but it’s a year round destination for its autumn colors in fall and the lakeside beaches during the summer,” said Lafave. “Its accessibility by air with flights by Air Canada and Porter as well as its proximity to Montreal makes it a popular destination, but the biggest draw among our international residents and visitors is the European culture and spirited lifestyle.”
Engel & Völkers Tremblant headquarters are located in the pedestrian village, providing leading services to buyers and sellers of premier Mont-Tremblant properties. Host to world-class events including the IRONMAN Series, Wanderlust Festival and countless cultural events both at the resort and in the region, Tremblant was voted #1 Ski Resort in Eastern North America 18 times by SKI Magazine readers, and named one of the World’s 25 Best Ski Towns in 2014, according to National Geographic.
With its newest shops in Toronto, Markham, King City, Collingwood, Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary and Montreal; and, in the U.S. with San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Lake Tahoe, Houston, South Charlotte, Minneapolis and New York City, Engel & Völkers continues to strengthen its presence in premium real estate markets across North America. Additionally, Engel & Völkers continues to expand throughout Canada with planned openings in several new markets.
