Engel & Völkers Expands into Knoxville, TN



The global luxury real estate brand’s latest expansion in the Southeast strengthens its presence in a region that is experiencing an influx of new residents and inbound moves

Engel & Völkers today announced its expansion into Knoxville, TN. The latest shop opening in the Americas for the global luxury real estate brand is led by Cindy Kraus, an experienced area real estate professional and certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist. The newly established Engel & Völkers Knoxville will service homebuyers and sellers in East Tennessee, specializing in lakefront and luxury properties in Knoxville and surrounding areas.

“Tennessee ranks among the top five states for inbound moves in the U.S., and Knoxville is a premier market that we’re thrilled to now be part of,” said Anthony Hitt, president and CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “With an influx of new residents driving this evolving market, Cindy is the ideal real estate professional to lead our brand presence in Knoxville. Her local, industry and leadership experience along with recognition for providing exceptional service and a luxury experience for all of her clients, are principles that align completely with those of Engel & Völkers.”

The Engel & Völkers Knoxville shop is located at the Pinnacle at Turkey Creek in West Knoxville and will service homebuyers and sellers drawn to the area for its magnificent lakefront and mountain properties, beautiful terrain, low property taxes, proximity to the Smoky Mountain National Park and accessibility to Nashville, Atlanta, Asheville and Gatlinburg. Knoxville is also home to the University of Tennessee and attracts a high level of professionals and engineers. The city also boasts a vibrant micro brewery and restaurant scene, and a full four-season year. Residents have their pick of housing inventory, ranging from rustic cabins to lakefront mansions, urban condos to historic homes, and starter and median priced homes to multi-family hunting properties. 

“Affiliating with Engel & Völkers has elevated our business to the next level,” said Kraus. “Our advisors have the tools they need to provide the highest quality of custom client service, along with the marketing exposure and reach that comes with being part of an established and respected global network. The Engel & Völkers brand is uniquely memorable, providing a distinct view of luxury as deeply personal and attainable to every individual, across all price points. It is the concierge approach to real estate that will set us apart in the Knoxville real estate market, for buyers, sellers and real estate professionals alike.”
