Engel & Völkers announced today the opening of its first Brookhaven shop, the latest expansion of the firm’s presence in the ever-growing Atlanta marketplace.
Scott Askew, owner of the new shop, also owns Engel & Völkers Intown Atlanta. Laurie Nickless, a Brookhaven resident and real estate veteran who has worked with Askew for over 17 years, will run the new office.
“Laurie is the perfect candidate to lead our Brookhaven shop. Her knowledge of the area and our industry, and her experience with building in Brookhaven, coupled with her positive ‘can-do’ attitude will provide the community with a wonderful alternative to what is typically found in real estate brokerages today,” said Askew.
Anthony Hitt, the CEO of Engel & Völkers North America, said the Brookhaven office is a natural step in Engel & Völkers’ Atlanta progression.
“Brookhaven presents itself as the ideal location to further extend Engel & Völkers’ presence in the greater Atlanta area, with close proximity to downtown Atlanta and Georgia’s second largest airport,” Hitt said. “As we continue to see dynamic growth in the Atlanta market, as showcased by the recent opening of our Buckhead Atlanta shop, Laurie and Scott will provide the leadership and area expertise necessary to best serve the comprehensive needs of buyers and sellers drawn to Brookhaven.”
