Engel & Völkers Undergoes Merger in Melbourne
Engel & Völkers franchisees Marcie Bolt and Ryan Fischer are merging their entities to become one unified presence in Melbourne, Florida
"Engel & Völkers is unlike any other brand in the real estate industry due to its collaborative global network," said Bolt. "Ryan and I are thrilled to join forces and strengthen our position in the market."
Bolt converted her previous brokerage, Tropic Coast Realty, by joining forces with the global real estate franchisor in 2018; it was renamed Engel & Völkers Melbourne Central. She expanded her presence in 2020 with another location called Engel & Völkers Melbourne Beachside. Her real estate experience spans more than 18 years; in which time she has represented over 1,000 transactions, totaling more than $250,000,000. Prior, she had a successful career in the food and beverage industry as the owner of a local restaurant.
"Since converting my unaffiliated brokerage to Engel & Völkers, we have been able to double our average price point," said Bolt. "The company has grown a lot over the past four years, but the best is yet to come. We are prepared to recruit and onboard an additional 20 top-producing real estate advisors."
Engel & Völkers Melbourne Downtown will reopen at a new location somewhere in the heart of Downtown Melbourne in 2023; a grand reopening event is forthcoming. Fischer acquired Engel & Völkers Melbourne Downtown from former owner, Garat Oates in 2019. Bolt will continue to operate her other two locations with the new DBA as well.
"The Space Coast has grown rapidly over the past few years," said Peter Giese, CEO of Engel & Völkers Florida. "This merger will allow for Engel & Völkers Melbourne to work together as one company with one mission to better service the luxury market in Melbourne. This is a natural move for both Marcie and Ryan and we are very pleased they decided to work together as one brokerage."
Engel & Völkers Florida is continuing to strategically strengthen and expand its presence in premium real estate markets across the state of Florida.
