We know how difficult it can be to understand the location, price range or renting conditions when you are relocating to Holland. So let us do the legwork for you instead. With our first intake interview, we collect your housing requirements and share our knowledge with you.
We ensure that you have received expert advice about the house search process and what the real estate market offers. Document your specific wish list and any agreed additional services and fees. If we indicate that your housing requirements are feasible, we start our service. Before we commence work on your behalf, you will be expected to pay a commitment deposit of EUR 250.00 (+21% VAT). This amount will be deducted from the final service fee. We are ready now to find your rental apartment in The Netherlands!

Housing in Amsterdam options

We propose available housing in Amsterdam, Haarlem, Rotterdam, or any other city in The Netherlands several options from our trusted network of local brokers and landlords. You may benefit from viewing properties often before they are visible on the market. We will do our utmost to ensure that the landlord chooses you when there are more candidates.

You will be accompanied by the property viewings. Performing a video viewing is an option if you prefer to view remotely. Particularly helpful if you are not yet based in The Netherlands.
Let us negotiate on your behalf the conditions of the agreement and explain local conventions in tenancy agreements including deposits, break clauses, and typical lease lengths. Before the key handover ceremony, the payments of the 1 st month rent and the deposit, together with our fee have to be paid. We make sure that the rent and the deposit will be transferred to the landlord in time.

Support through the whole process

On your move-in day, our representative will be with you to perform inventory checks, whilst documenting the actual state of the property. This part is very important to ensure the future return of the deposit and avoid claims of additional payment.

Utility providers (water, gas and electricity) who offer flexible contracts are selected as part of our settling-in package. It is of critical importance to ensure flexibility in subscription cancellations, should you need to move out, sooner than initially planned.
