Anthony Hitt has served as Chief Executive Officer of Engel & Völkers Americas since January of 2014. Anthony has been personally involved in Engel & Völkers’ emergence in the United States since 2010 when the Hamburg-based real estate leader tapped him to establish its presence within California.
Engel & Völkers is known as the leading destination for highly selective real estate service with unique, international accessibility and looks to Anthony’s leadership for its continued growth and success, now with almost 150 shops and close to 3000 real estate advisors spanning the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
As a top-producing agent himself for many years, Anthony 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.
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.”
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 Achievement”, “Taking Charge”, and “Positive Impressions.”
