A Living Symphony

By the Engel & Völkers Team

Piet Oudolf composes internationally acclaimed symphonies. His instruments? Prairie lilies, meadow rue, moor grass and peonies. When it comes to the art of horticulture, Oudolf is often recognized as second to none in the realm of arranging gardens. From orchestrating installations for the Biennale in Venice and Leuvehoofd Park in Rotterdam, to creating more personal, private gardens in the Netherlands (his home country) and Nantucket Island, Oudolf is a master at harmonizing perennials and shrubbery to create dynamic “living pictures.”

New Yorkers have probably come into contact with his work via the city’s ever-popular High Line and Battery Park gardens, which he designed in 2006 and 2003,

According to Engel & Völkers’ latest Venice market report, the city’s residential property market is witnessing growing demand, especially near areas on the Grand Canal. This is met, however, with a limited availability of homes in the most desirable areas of the city.

“The majority of buyers are looking for a second home in Venice, or an investment property for short-term rental to tourists,” said Mauro Lozza, Managing Director of Engel & Völkers in Venice. Currently, international buyers account for

Exceptional customer service is what makes any good company great. In fact, there are many modern day examples of companies across multiple industries becoming lone survivors among their competitors because of this very ideal. Treating people the way they think they should be treated is not enough … it’s about going above and beyond, exceeding expectations and creating customers for life. When you can attract customers versus chase them, a spark ignites creating a contagious culture and experience.

So how does this all start? With leadership, of course. Feeling nostalgic, we decided to take a look back at one of our favorite interviews with the great Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group and known as a visionary

Some historic properties can be charming, but the impressive castle Kasteel van Olsene, currently listed through Engel & Völkers in Belgium for 25 million euros, comes with extraordinary comforts that ring a bit more than cutesy. With sleek modern edges around its outdoor (and indoor) pool, flanked by gorgeous chandeliers and priceless crown molding, we imagine this moated castle located just 40 miles west of Brussels could be the perfect hideaway for James Bond himself. After all, the castle also features a car lift and underground garage that could perfectly fit up to 12 of Bond’s signature sports cars.

In addition to having high-tech video surveillance, necessary for any secret agent mission, Kasteel
