Anthony Hitt

Engel & Völkers CEO

Anthony Hitt has served as Engel & Völkers North America’s Chief Executive Officer since January of 2014. Under Anthony’s leadership, the brand in North America has grown by 383% by shop locations, 398% in agent growth, and 285% by sales volume. Engel & Völkers North America now operates in more than 90 markets with more than 2,000 real estate advisors representing the brand. 
Anthony was a top-producing agent who was continually acknowledged for his business acumen and commitment to customer satisfaction by publications such as the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times. Drawing from his experience – and from his success managing his own record-setting team of twelve real estate professionals under the Anthony Hitt banner – Anthony established a training course for other agents to raise the bar for superior performance in the industry. 
Anthony pursued the same objectives upon joining Engel & Völkers, where his management and training initiatives provided an extraordinary level of support for the brand’s license partners and brokerages, allowing them to attract the top agents to their teams and raising the interest of the most discerning real estate consumers. 
Prior to joining Engel & Völkers, Anthony worked with Sotheby’s International Realty in Los Angeles for eight years and closed approximately 400 real estate sales transactions amounting to nearly half a billion dollars. Los Angeles Magazine named Anthony one of the city's "Super Agents," and Los Angeles Business Journal awarded him as their first and only "Green Agent of the Year." Since becoming CEO, he has been ranked in the Swanepoel Top 200 Most Powerful People in Residential Real Estate in 2016 and 2017 and included in Inman’s The Real Estate Influencers List in 2017.
Anthony credits his business and real estate success to his philosophy of providing exceptionally personal customer service and constantly implementing the most up-to-date systems for efficiency and comprehensive service. He has authored several books to share his advice for success in business and in life with others, including Essentials of Personal AchievementTaking Charge, and Positive Impressions

Meet Anthony at:

Presentation: Making Virtual a Reality for Brands and Consumers
Date/Time: 2:15 PM
Virtual reality has arrived in the sense that the technology is available on a mass scale, but brands are still looking for real ways to incorporate VR into their businesses and marketing strategies, beyond just the wow factor. Engel & Volkers, a luxury real estate company with 8,000 real estate advisors in 700 offices around the world,  with its U.S. headquarters on Park Avenue in New York, has tackled this. Drawing on his experience in implementing VR in every Engel & Völkers shop in North America, CEO Anthony Hitt will discuss VR’s practical applications.
