Engel & Völkers Inauguration of St. Augustine Beach

A common theme for Engel & Völkers Florida over the past three years has been to take advantage of market conditions for exponential growth.

Engel & Völkers Florida today announced its latest franchise expansion to St. Augustine Beach and Palm Coast, marking the brand’s sixth and seventh locations in Northeast Florida. Local market expert Jenn Bryndal to lead new brokerages as part of her regional expansion; it already owns Engel & Völkers St. Augustine.

“The impetus for the opening of Engel & Völkers St. Augustine Beach was the recruitment of the Carr team,” Bryndal said. “Doug and Donia Carr have been a powerful husband and wife team for over 25 years. They have worked successfully from this location with Coldwell Banker since 2007, but wanted to affiliate with a better brand that had more to offer them and their customers. An additional store, located in the heart of St. Augustine Beach, provides our Consultants with the opportunity to network among local business owners and serve the growing number of vacationers in our beach town.

Team Carr is made up of husband and wife Doug and Donia. Prior to moving to Florida in 2007, they were the brokers/owners of Chalet Realty in Breckenridge, Colorado. Most recently they were a top team with Coldwell Banker. The duo will primarily work at Engel & Völkers St. Augustine Beach, located at 11 14th Lane; a grand opening event was held at this store on September 22, 2022. Engel & Völkers Palm Coast is located at 213 S Second St Unit 6A.

“Palm Coast is an international market with a high volume of foreign travellers,” Bryndal said. “Engel & Völkers’ unrivaled European heritage and global presence is a natural fit. Our expansion to Palm Coast allows agents looking to grow their business and elevate the level of service they offer the opportunity to align with our international network. Our new Palm Coast store is centrally located on the Flagler Beach Pier among local businesses, restaurants and hotels.

Bryndal partnered with Engel & Völkers in 2019 to open its first brokerage with franchise company Engel & Völkers St. Augustine. She was previously affiliated with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty and Coldwell Banker Premier Properties, where she was a top sales associate who consistently ranked among the top 10 agents in St. Johns County. Since joining Engel & Völkers, she has accounted for several record listings and sales. A third brokerage location is also in the works. In his first year and a half at Engel & Völkers, Bryndal recorded a meteoric 146% growth in average selling price and a 171% increase in total sales volume.

“A common theme for Engel & Völkers Florida over the past three years has been to take advantage of market conditions for exponential growth,” said Peter Giese, CEO of Engel & Völkers Florida. “We are pursuing this aggressive growth plan, now in a changing market where our competitors, on the other hand, are reducing their footprints. We are very pleased to support our franchisee, Jenn, in her efforts to expand the brand’s presence in St. Augustine and Palm Coast. It is on the way to becoming the first real estate company serving the luxury market in its territory.
