Out of more than 12,000 real estate professionals who represent the Engel & Völkers brand in more than 30 countries worldwide, Gruninger is among only 122 advisors selected to carry the title Private Office advisor in the Americas (Top 1%).

“Engel & Völkers attracts the finest real estate professionals in each market we serve, so as a member of Private Office, David represents true exceptionality,” said Anthony Hitt, president & CEO, Engel & Völkers Americas. “Our Private Office advisors are not just top producers—they unfailingly offer an incomparable experience for their clients.”

To qualify for Private Office, advisors within the Engel & Völkers network must be nominated by their broker, meet baseline criteria for transaction 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 that evaluates which candidates meet all requirements for final submission to the head of Private Office in Hamburg, Germany.

Gruninger 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, Gruninger 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.

“It is an honor to have been selected to be a Private Office advisor,” said Gruninger. “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.”
