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 estate market, because I hate that expats are being exploited by my fellow country men, especially in the housing market.

Further down this page, you will find some information on what we do (Mijn Verkoopmakelaar) and how that could be of use during this selling process. 

You might come across some medium stuctured sentences. Let's say, my knowledge on the Dutch real estate market is far better than my English (feel free to send an e-mail to if the error is too big to ignore).
