When we were looking to buy an apartment in Amsterdam a few years ago, a friend highly recommended Mie-Lan. This recommendation was completely deserved. Mie-Lan and her team did a great job finding us our perfectly located and beautifully priced home. Naturally, as we were preparing to move abroad and sell our apartment a few months ago, we thought of Mie-Lan. Again, the entire team handled the selling process and strategy with meticulous expertise, professionalism, and efficiency. If we ever return to the Netherlands, we will certainly contact Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency.

Mie-Lan Kok helped me in every steps while buying my flat. A process that normally is very long and difficult seemed very clear and easy. Nelleke followed my purchase and she was very professional and she took good care of my flat needs. I would suggest them a million time!

Thanks

It is the second time I use Mie-Lan Kok Agency to buy a property in NL, I also recommended them to some of my friends. They have been very professional, flexible and accommodated my needs in all possible ways. Nelleke who assisted me with most of my viewings gave good advice and negotiated the price for my benefit. I would definitely use them if I need real estate service again in the future!

Michela Lato, Amsterdam

I moved to Amsterdam two years ago and fell in love with it, therefore I decided to start the process of buying a house. The house market is insanely fast in Amsterdam and it is almost impossible to keep up with it alone. Mie-Lan Kok agency supported me step by step in this process and made it easy for me. I had to look at properties I like and show up to the appointments; the rest was taken care of. I highly recommend this agency to anyone and in particular to expats, who don’t speak Dutch and are not aware of Dutch laws and regulations. Great service.

Doug and Laurie Ray, Haarlem

Mie-Lan did a wonderful job guiding and advising us through the purchase of our apartment in Haarlem. She meticulously prepared us for the nuances of the Dutch purchase procedures, while graciously working with our tight time schedule. She also advised us on the characteristics of the different neighborhoods as well as the quality of materials used on several of the properties we viewed.
Within several days of searching, Mie-Lan helped us find  the perfect apartment in the most charming section of Haarlem. Brigitte skillfully assisted us with any extra questions, and kept us updated with the documents we were required to sign. The whole process was enjoyable and educational, and we are now settling in to our new Dutch home! We are grateful to Mie-Lan and her staff for being excellent guides, and we definitely recommend the Mie-Lan Kok Agency to anyone looking to purchase property in the North Holland region.

“Buying a property isn’t an easy thing, even harder most times when you are an expat and in a difficult market like Amsterdam. Mie-Lan and her team have provided me great advise, and have been qualified on all aspects. I have been mainly helped by Marieke, but the whole team has been great!”

Larry Chow, Amsterdam

“I was extremely pleased with the service and guidance provided by Mie-Lan's team over the course of my home purchase. They provided expert advice, and I never felt pressured into a purchase. In fact, it was the opposite–their unbiased opinions on some properties I viewed had me reconsider putting forward an offer. I have already recommended Mie-Lan's agency to several friends who have gone on to make purchases through it, and will continue to do so.”

Tiffany Vlaanderen, Amsterdam

I had a great experience working with Nelleke and Marieke from Mie-lan kok to purchase my apartment. The ladies were very caring, attentive and thorough in walking me through all the processes and paperwork of buying property in the Netherlands. I felt more and more comfortable with them and the searching process throughout our time together.
We sat down on multiple occasions to discuss how appointments went and orienting me with important Dutch documents, that as an expat I needed more guidance on. We saw more than 15 properties together in a month span and the ladies and the office were great to accommodate this busy process in a timely manner. They were also very honest and forthcoming about the condition of properties we saw – good at pointing out matters of concern, never pushing to make a decision on an apartment and often reminding me to follow my instincts and love the place I would purchase.
Would highly recommend working them!

My husband and I decided to buy a property in Amsterdam after having lived in a rented house in the Oud Zuid for one year.  Although there was plenty of information on Funda for us to conduct a search on our own, I decided to attend the Expat Mortgage seminar to get a better idea of the process.  It was the best decision I made, because I met Marieke there! Marieke is a fantastic professional, and she made the process of finding the right place and negotiating the right price quite effortless on our part.  We found a beautiful home which didn’t need any refurbishment and the Mie Lan Kok team along with Expat Mortgages made the process of finding a mortgage and buying the house easy and seamless.  I would definitely recommend working with Mie Lan Kok and especially Marieke to anyone looking for a house in Amsterdam!

Jackie Poplar, Leiden

I admit to being a demanding house-hunter. I had never purchased a house before, even in my native country, so I was pretty nervous. I had a long wish list. I wanted everything. But Mie-Lan and her associates were patient, persistent, and thorough. They translated the intricacies of the Dutch housing market for me, pointing out advantages and disadvantages of the properties we saw – including some that would never occur to me. They helped me navigate the many neighborhoods of my target cities to find those that fit my lifestyle. They stayed with me through the long process as my needs evolved and the housing market became tighter and crazier. And, because of their fine work and indispensable help, I found a place that is not only perfect for me, but likely to increase nicely in value in the years to come.
