Esther Velzen

Esther helped us from start to finish. She suggested properties to look at, accompanied us during the showings, pointed out positives and negatives of the properties, facilitated contacts to people to do technical inspections, a notary, and suggested contractors we might need while owning a home. As Dutch is not our native language, she helped us to understand forms and documents, talked to sellers and their agents for us, and explained idiosyncrasies of the Dutch housing market. She was with us from the first showing of a property to the final appointment at the notary when we signed all the paperwork. During that time she promptly responded to all our emails and phone calls and left no question unanswered. We are very happy with the services she provided and would definitely recommend her to our friends and family, and possibly rely on her services again in the future.
