The Engel Team's Approach

With over 40 years of experience, this dynamic and innovative team offers their clients current market analytics and boundless creativity in their approach to listing and selling real estate. The Engel Team guides clients through pre-listing their property, pricing, marketing strategies, and the sales process. Buyers benefit from the team's in-depth knowledge of local real estate and tremendous market insight in the areas of both real estate investment and development.

Each week, the members of the Engel Team spend hours doing market analysis, researching, conducting broker open house tours, and conversing with other realtors to get the current pulse of the market. They meet as a team and with other realtors to discuss market status and buyer trends. They then provide clients with an easy-to-understand and in-depth monthly market analysis called the Market Report.

The Engel Team leverages their 40 years of shared real estate sales experience as well as John's 20 years in internet marketing and media to ensure that every property is marketed locally and globally.

The team delivers a service platform that encompasses its members' knowledge, network, and analysis so that clients can confidently transact within the area's (New Canaan, Darien, Wilton, Norwalk, Stamford, Rowayton) dynamic residential real estate market.
