Engel & Völkers continues franchise expansion in Tampa Bay with new shop in St. Pete Beach
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. (PRWEB) August 16, 2021 - Engel & Völkers Florida today announced its latest franchise expansion in the greater Tampa Bay area with Engel & Völkers St. Pete Beach, marking the brand’s fifth location in the region. Local market experts, Leisa and Matthew Erickson acquired the territory as part of their regional growth strategy and will lead the new brokerage as its license partners. The Ericksons already own Engel & Völkers St. Pete, located at 102 2nd Avenue NE, which opened in November 2018. The new Engel & Völkers St. Pete Beach shop, located at 6805 Gulf Boulevard, is slated to open this fall.
“Our downtown location has experienced record growth in just two short years,” said Leisa Erickson. “We wanted to be able to expand our services to cater to those clients looking for a relaxed beach lifestyle as well as those desiring urban walkability. St. Pete Beach is a vibrant beach community poised to explode given demand for coastal properties in St. Pete Beach proper, Pass-a-Grille, Treasure Island, and Tierra Verde. We are excited to be a contributor to the development and transformation of St. Pete Beach given the lifting of the development moratorium.”
Engel & Völkers St. Pete Beach will serve various communities throughout Pinellas County including, Bayway Isles, Belle Vista, Isla Del Sol, Pass-a-Grille, Punta Vista, South Pasadena, St. Pete Beach, Sunset Beach, Treasure Island, Three Palms Point, Vina Del Mar, Tierra Verde, and more.
“We are thrilled to expand our presence in West Central Florida with Leisa and Matt,” said Peter Giese, Chief Growth Officer at Engel & Völkers Florida. “We highly value the relationships we have with our existing License Partners and are overjoyed when their success with one shop allows them to expand their business to new heights. In a short period of time, the Ericksons have demonstrated impressive achievements; transitioning from a top-producing team with RE/MAX, to very successful franchise owners.”
After extensive careers in the corporate sales and marketing sector, the Ericksons found success in the real estate industry. In just five years time, they had amassed over $26 million in annual sales volume and were ranked 10th out of the top 100 agents in Pinellas County. Prior to partnering with Engel & Völkers, they were formerly known as Leisa Erickson & Associates, a RE/MAX Metro team. During their first year with Engel & Völkers, they ranked among the top 10 teams in the entire Americas network. Leisa Erickson is also a member of the prestigious Private Office network, a designation held by less than 250 professionals worldwide.
“Engel & Völkers St. Pete Beach will make a wonderful addition to our ever-growing network of real estate shops in Florida and the Tampa Bay area,” said Timo Khammash, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers Florida. “St. Pete Beach is a postcard-perfect seaside destination that effortlessly balances oceanfront charm with international allure.”
St. Pete Beach is a resort city on one of eight barrier islands west of St. Petersburg. It is known for its award-winning sugar sand beaches, world-class galleries and museums, eclectic shops, and gourmet restaurants that line Gulf Boulevard. Home to the longest stretch of undeveloped public beach in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, TripAdvisor named it as the “No. 2 Beach in America in 2020.” The area offers exceptional outdoor recreational experiences such as kitesurfing, parasailing, stand-up paddle boarding, and windsurfing.
