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 that evaluates which candidates meet all requirements for final submission to the head of Private Office in Hamburg, Germany. 

Smith was formally inducted at Engel & Völkers’ invitation-only Private Office event on October 17, 2019 at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, California. 

As a Private Office advisor, Smith 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 her market for international referrals.

 “It is an honor to have been selected to be a Private Office advisor,” said Smith. “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 at this level.”
