In other words, we work ‘in support of excellence’.

After over 16 years of experience in the larger area of Leiden and The Hague, we saw a business opportunity that could fulfil the needs of expats that were looking for a home in the Netherlands. In 2006, based upon proper investigation with regard to what was really important for our future clients, we started our independent real estate agency that does not sell- but only purchases – and rents houses.


The current Dutch real estate market is hectic; there is more demand than offer and property is being sold quickly. We want to make our collaboration profitable for you but also without risk. Our priority is to find the place our client really likes and with good investment value. We want our clients being able to easily sell – or rent out later on (when they will have to leave for another country). We guide our clients during the entire process of buying a house, in a safe – and efficient way and with the help of our contact network (mortgage advisors, valuators, structural surveyor and notaries). Our contact network is very experienced in the expat community.
