Staff report

Lenny Felberbaum was recently inducted into Engel & Völkers’ Private Office network.

Felberbaum is the License Partner and Broker of Engel & Völkers Delray Beach. Felberbaum is now part of an elite group of Engel & Völkers advisors worldwide to be awarded with this distinction, which recognizes extraordinary business results supported by competency and providing the highest level of client service.

“It is an honor to have been selected to be a Private Office Advisor,” Felberbaum said. “The Engel & Völkers name and reputation carries a high level of prestige around the world as a promise of outstanding real estate service and expertise, and I look forward to representing the brand at this level.”

To receive the designation, he had to pass the company’s ultra-competitive vetting and nomination process for inclusion.

Out of more than 11,000 real estate professionals who represent the Engel & Völkers brand in over 30 countries worldwide, Felberbaum is among less than 100 advisors selected to carry the title of Private Office Advisor in the Americas.

“Engel & Völkers attracts the best agents in each market we serve, so as a member of Private Office, Lenny represents true exceptionalism,” said Anthony Hitt, President & CEO of Engel & Völkers Americas. “Our Private Office Advisors are not just top producers—they unfailingly offer an incomparable experience for their clients.”

Felberbaum joins nine of his fellow Florida colleagues who are already members of the prestigious group: Lourdes Alatriste, Engel & Völkers Miami Coral Gables; Beau Blankenship, Engel & Völkers 30A Beaches; Ryan Chiodo, Engel & Völkers Olde Naples/Bonita-Estero; Magnus Jennemyr, Engel & Völkers Miami Coral Gables; Matt Johnson, Engel & Völkers Wellington; Michael Ledwitz, Engel & Völkers Boca Raton; Thomas Ostrander, Engel & Völkers Olde Naples; Irving Padron, Engel & Völkers Miami Coral Gables and Carol Sollak, Engel & Völkers Palm Beach & Wellington.

“We are exceedingly proud of the representation we have through these nine members of Engel & Völkers Florida who are a part of Private Office,” said Timo Khammash, Managing Partner of Engel & Völkers, the company’s regional franchisor. “As we continue to expand our brand throughout Florida, we will be looking for the calibre of professionals who conduct business on this level.”

To qualify for Private Office, advisors within the Engel & Völkers network must be nominated by their broker, meet baseline criteria for transactional volume and show consistency in their high year-over-year production numbers. To assess their market expertise and notable service quality as real estate professionals, clients are also asked to comment on their service experience. Lastly, nominees are submitted to a selection committee in the Americas who decides which candidates meet all requirements for final submission to the head of Private Office in Hamburg, Germany.

Felberbaum was formally inducted at the invitation-only Private Office event at Engel & Völkers Americas Headquarters in New York City on Dec. 6. The new members were celebrated with evening of networking, a formal ceremony and reception.

As a Private Office Advisor, Felberbaum gains access to Private Office-specific marketing assets, choice opportunities catering to the brand’s global ultra-high net worth clients and is the preferred contact in his market for international referrals.
