Scottsdale’s Engel & Volkers partners with Bosa Development

Bosa Development, the foremost leader in superior quality, luxury, design-focused waterfront residential living and S&P Real Estate have partnered with world-renowned Engel & Völkers Scottsdale to introduce Arizona residents to Bosa’s newest bayside project in San Diego, Pacific Gate.

Engel & Völkers‚ Sandra Wilken, franchise broker and brokers Babbi Gabel and Mary Grassl are heading up the effort to introduce Arizona residents to the unparalleled opportunity of Pacific Gate, Bosa Development’s latest, Super Prime project located at the corner of Pacific and Broadway in downtown San Diego, one block from the waterfront on San Diego’s “Front Porch.”

Says Wilken, “We are honored to represent Pacific Gate, the epitome of a Super Prime building. Its unprecedented waterfront location, iconic architecture, first-class services and undeniable quality are of great interest to Arizonians who are seeking a trophy property that is a true work of art in the urban, desirable and dynamic downtown San Diego area. We look forward to continuing our long-standing work with the real estate community in marketing Pacific Gate.”

Bemi Jauhal, director of sales and marketing for Bosa Development and Jason Dolker, managing director for S&P Real Estate sought a partner in Arizona who not only understands marketing new super prime luxury residential offerings, but are deeply rooted in the Scottsdale/Phoenix market. They note, “We are confident that Engel &  Völkers will do a great job of working with the Arizona real estate community to introduce them to this opportunity in San Diego, a market that Arizonians love and have been coming to for generations to not only visit but to live.” Broker events in Arizona and San Diego are being planned, as well as other unique activities to immerse the brokerage community into the unprecedented lifestyle created by Pacific Gate and vibrancy of downtown San Diego.

Pacific Gate’s architecture will be an iconic cornerstone for the city, located at a central gateway to downtown and steps from the lively and picturesque North Embarcadero and waterfront park at an intersection where the ocean meets land. The beautiful oval glass residential tower designed by renowned New York-based architect Kohn Pedersen Fox, in collaboration with CDA Architects and interiors by renowned Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA), create design that will evolve the San Diego skyline. Rising 41 stories over San Diego’s remarkable downtown landscape, this stunning residential tower will feature breathtaking ocean, bay and city views. This exclusive collection of luxury residences, located at the front porch of downtown, will offer unparalleled living space, first-class service and exceptional amenities.

Scottsdale Brokerage Nearly Doubles in Size in 4 Weeks

After making its debut last month, Engel & Völkers Scottsdale, Sandra Wilken Partners has nearly doubled the size of the firm in a matter of four weeks, attracting an additional 12 sales advisors to join the existing team of 17.

Interest from local Realtors and brokers began to flood in after luxury real estate veteran Sandra Wilken announced that she was the first Engel & Völkers license partner in Arizona and was converting her 18-year, Scottsdale-based company to Engel & Völkers Scottsdale, Sandra Wilken Partners.

“I’ve been overwhelmed and, quite honestly, pleasantly shocked by the response from the local real estate community since the announcement,” said Sandra Wilken. “Top realtors from around the Valley have been reaching out to us inquiring about how they can join our team. We have expanded with 12 new advisors, bringing our team to 29. With growth comes more listings, more clients, more transactions and more market presence. We’re also already seeing a significant boost in business from the Engel & Völkers international network of potential buyers from all around the globe. It’s exciting.”

Additionally, the firm has launched a new division that specializes in high-end, master-planned communities as well as luxury condominium developments throughout the Valley. New hires Babbi Gabel, Angela Phillips and Mary Grassl will lead the division and have longstanding reputations for being among the best in high-rise sales and have been recognized for their success at The Scottsdale Waterfront Residences and Safari Drive.

“With condominium and master-planned developments returning to the market, I wanted to bring in the expertise of agents like Babbi, Angela and Mary to allow us to expand our services to this area of real estate sales,” said Wilken. “Their recent success is a fantastic complement to my 20 years of development experience managing sales for Gainey Ranch and The Phoenician.”

Last month Engel & Völkers, the international premium real estate firm, announced the opening of its first Scottsdale shop and entrance into the Arizona real estate market, breaking new ground as the luxury brand continues to expand throughout the U.S. and around the world.
