Daniel and Shelly Hammer join John Gonzalez to strengthen leadership at Engel & Völkers Stuart
STUART, Fla., Aug. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Engel & Völkers Florida today announced a new ownership structure at one of its treasure coast franchises, Engel & Völkers Stuart. Current Broker/Owner, John Gonzalez welcomes Daniel Hammer aboard as an equal partner. Daniel's wife, Shelly Hammer will also join the leadership team with a focus on recruiting more top local agents to the brokerage.
"I am thrilled to bring on Dan and Shelly," said Gonzalez. "Dan has a long history of success in business, including serving as CEO/president of several global companies. His management experience, operational expertise and strategic vision have led several organizations to significant growth and success. Shelly's marketing background and customer focus are ideally suited to our shared vision of expanding sales and attracting top talent."
Husband-and-wife team, Daniel and Shelly Hammer have been with Engel & Völkers Stuart since it opened in 2017. The Hammer Group has represented over $43-million of sales volume since joining Engel & Völkers. Prior to transitioning to real estate, Daniel Hammer had an impressive corporate career including being former President of The Bibb Company and Dan River Inc., CEO/President of Perfect Industries and an executive with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, in addition to leading his own consulting firm. Raised on her family-owned golf course in Michigan, Shelly brings a keen insight into lifestyle communities and luxury properties. She is a member of the Women's Council of REALTORS® and is active in the Woman's Club of Stuart.
The changes to the leadership structure come as Engel & Völkers Stuart gears up to expand its coverage beyond Stuart throughout Martin County, including communities such as Hobe Sound, Jensen Beach, Jupiter Island, Palm City, Port Salerno, Sailfish Point, Sewall's Point and Tequesta. The typical value of homes in Martin County in 2021 was $617,723 and has continued to increase throughout this year.
"John has an impeccable reputation for integrity and is highly regarded in the community; which is why we're so enthused to partner with him," said Daniel Hammer. "I look forward to applying my business and real estate experience—along with the market insights Shelly and I have gained from living in multiple communities across the U.S.—to position Engel & Völkers Stuart for success in the expanding Treasure Coast luxury market."
A lifelong Florida resident, Gonzalez started a successful career in the mortgage and real estate financing sectors before earning his real estate license and eventually his broker's license. He founded Sailfish Realty of Florida in 2009, before converting to Engel & Völkers Stuart in 2017. He is the former President of the Martin County Board of Realtors and a Vice President of Florida Realtors, the state's largest trade association.
"This is a very exciting time to be associated with Engel & Völkers Stuart," said Peter Giese, CEO of Engel & Völkers Florida. "The addition of Daniel and Shelly not only increases the amount of individuals dedicated to the shop's growth, but it also positively influences the company's capital structure to be aggressive in implementing an accelerated growth strategy. We are very pleased with John's decision to include them in ownership and management."
