Engel & Völkers opened a new residential real estate brokerage in St. Petersburg, the firm’s fourth location in the Tampa Bay area.

The new brokerage, Engel & Völkers St. Pete, is owned and operated by Leisa and Matthew Erickson, who formerly did business as Leisa Erickson & Associates.

“We have been watching Engel & Völkers’ expansion in the Americas for some time now and knew it would be a perfect fit,” Leisa Erickson said in a prepared statement. “The connected global culture of Engel & Völkers, including the yachting and aviation divisions, provides expanded connections for our advisors globally.”

Engel & Völkers St. Pete opened for business Nov. 12 in temporary office space at 433 Central Avenue, Suite 209.

The new brokerage will hold a grand opening early next year at its permanent location, 102 Second Avenue Northeast in downtown St. Petersburg.

Engel & Völkers St. Pete hired three agents prior to opening its temporary office and plans to expand to 20 agents by mid-2019.

In the Tampa area, Engel & Völkers now has locations in Bellair, Madeira Beach, south Tampa and St. Petersburg, the second-largest city in the area and the fifth-largest in Florida. – Mike Seemuth
