Engel & Völkers Expands into North Central Florida with New Shop in Gainesville
Global real estate brand Engel & Völkers continues franchise expansion with new shop in Gainesville, the first location in North Central Florida
GAINESVILLE, FLA. (PRWEB) June 29, 2020 - Engel & Völkers today announced its latest franchise expansion into North Central Florida with Engel & Völkers Gainesville. Local market expert Carrie Cason will lead the new brokerage as License Partner and Broker. Engel & Völkers Gainesville marks the company’s first location in the North Central Florida region. Cason has obtained the licensed rights to Alachua and Columbia Counties.
“After 20 years in the real estate industry, I was ready to take the next step in my career,” said Cason. “I am ready to wind down my personal transactions and begin transitioning into a leadership role to mentor other talented realtors. I want to pass on the knowledge I have accumulated, to help others achieve their professional goals. While I enjoyed many successful years at my sister-in-law’s brokerage, I am ready to branch out on my own and bring this phenomenal brand to North Central Florida.”
Cason is exploring commercial space in West Gainesville to build her shop. In the meantime, she is actively recruiting talented local professionals to join her team of advisors. A grand opening is planned for late 2020.
“As a company who relied on in-person meetings to deliver our unique value proposition, we quickly had to restrategize how we could effectively conduct business during these unprecedented times,” said Timo Khammash, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers Florida. “Because of the advanced systems, tools and virtual offerings that were already available through Engel & Völkers, we found it easier to adapt than other brands. This enabled us to continue conducting business and expanding the brand throughout Florida. We are thrilled to enter the North Central Florida market with Engel & Völkers Gainesville and look forward to further growth throughout the state.”
Cason comes to Engel & Völkers after 10 years at Swift Creek Realty. Prior, Cason was with Westfield Realty Group and RE/MAX Professionals. She has been in the real estate industry for twenty years, earning her brokers license in 2004 and designations such as the GRI and CCIM along the way. Cason specializes in residential real estate, new construction and corporate relocation. She has completed nearly 600 transactions throughout her career, totaling a volume of more than $150,000,000. Cason also holds a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and Public Relations from the University of Florida.
“I was initially drawn to Engel & Völkers because of their stylish and sophisticated brand,” said Cason. “It was their superior suite of resources and the collaborative global network that really sold me. Although Engel & Völkers is not well known in North Central Florida yet, I am simply introducing the area to a well-established global industry leader. This is the impetus needed for me to attract top-performing local professionals and affluent clientele.”
Established in 1854, Gainesville has become the largest city in North Central Florida. It is home to the University of Florida, a top-ranked public research university. North Central Florida is known for world-class education, health care, culture, and outdoor recreation. This area of the state has been steadily increasing in population over the last decade.
