For your information: I am a 27 year old Dutchie myself with a lot of expat friends.
I share articles related to the Dutch real esate market, because I hate that expats are being exploited by my fellow country men, especially in the housing market.
Futher down this page, you will find some information on what it is we do (Mijn Verkoopmakelaar) and how that could be of use during this selling process.
