I was recommended Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency by several colleagues in separate occasions and that couldn’t be a coincidence. I first picked a couple of locations in Utrecht and then asked for her assistance. Picking that one place you really like is only the first part of the job! Then came the reality checks on the house, the bidding, the notary. All things which Mie-Lan and her staff take care of. I really appreciated the level of attention dedicated to my case and the skill in preparing and executing the bidding. I ended up with a very good deal, which has left me with more budget for the fun part -furnishing my new home. Thank you once more!

I have been a client of Mie-Lan’s for a number of years and two homes later I am honored to be able to say that Mie-Lan’s work has been exemplary. As an Expat, buying a house can be difficult both from a cultural and logistical perspective. Mie-Lan’s approach is needs based and she was quickly able to determine what was important to me in a home. Mie-Lan treats each home purchase as if it were a home that she was buying herself. This is not a quality you find every day. Her strength in the negotiation was the determining factor for me to be able to purchase my new home. Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency also helps provide the services that are required to ensure that you have made the right financial decision and the tools to be happy and comfortable in your home. The small attention to details before and after purchasing my new house was what made this experience truly special.
I worked as an estate agent before so I first started to look for a house by myself. After 6 months without finding one, I contacted Mie-Lan and we found my apartment in 6 weeks. I especially appreciated her understanding of my needs avoiding me unnecessary viewing. My work keeping me busy, she organized targeted viewing sessions within my schedule, which was not easy. She negotiated the price for me and helped me to solve legal aspects, I finally saved time and money and I’m a happy owner now. Thank you Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency for your availability, your professionalism and your kindness.
Thanks for helping me in buying a house (a complex Dutch process, at least for foreigners). I was made comfortable and was explained the whole process clearly which was really helpful. You are soft spoken but at the same time you are very aggressive when negotiating the price of the property. And a special thanks to your colleagues at agency who not only helped me in buying the house but also extended the help with refurbishment tips. You were always on time and everything was handled in a very very professional way. Special thanks to you in finding me a great builder to help me with property refurbishment. As I do not speak Dutch, all this was more than helpful. This just shows that you go to any extent in helping your clients. I really appreciate your help and wish to work with you soon again.
Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency was very helpful from the beginning. Mie-Lan took me to many different styles of houses and apartments to help me understand what I could afford and also looked into my type of lifestyle. She delivered much more than I expected from an estate agent. Mie-Lan and her colleagues at Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency created a great short list for me and my partner. Mie-Lan was excellent when negotiating the price and the completion date of the house we chose. It was a great comfort to know that I had Mie-Lan’s support buying a house in a foreign country. In addition, all of the contacts that Mie-Lan put me in touch with were also very helpful. Mie-Lan was there all the way through to the signing of the contract which gave me real peace of mind.
Wij willen jullie hierbij erg bedanken voor alles. Jullie hebben samen met onze hypotheekadviseur alles zo goed en snel kunnen regelen en onze complimenten voor jullie deskundigheid en contact en samenwerking en onze complimenten dat jullie in een korte tijd het hele proces vanaf het begin zo keurig hebben kunnen regelen en afhandelen. Ook hebben wij tijdens het hele proces van de aankoop van onze nieuwe woning de gehele tijd een heel fijn en vertrouwd gevoel gehad en wisten dat alles goed geregeld en afgehandeld zou worden. Nogmaals bedankt.
Being new arrivals in the Netherlands, we were very fortunate to meet Mie-Lan at our first apartment viewing in Amsterdam. We found Mie-Lan and her team to be extremely professional and highly experienced. Mie-Lan understood our ‘wish list’ and never wasted anytime by suggesting any properties that were inappropriate. She was able to guide us though the market to find exactly what were looking for, and then negotiated a very good price for it. Most importantly for us, and perhaps unexpectedly, we found Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency to be thoughtful and genuine. They understand the needs and concerns of someone newly arrived in the country in regards to purchasing a property, but also on a personal level. We have already enthusiastically recommended Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency to friends and colleagues, and will continue to do so.
Buying a property in a foreign country is not easy. Local regulation and practices may be significantly different from what you are used to. I decided to use the services of Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency and they helped me to solve all issues and to find the house that I was looking for. The process became clear and smooth and I only had to focus in ensuring that the property was meeting my standards. Their help was essential in any step of the process. Without any doubt, I would recommend any expat looking for a new house in the Netherlands to seek their professional service. The house is great. We moved in and we are enjoying a lot.
It was a pleasure to work with Mie-Lan Kok Estate Agency and Nelleke in particular, we could just relax and enjoy the professional guidance through Amsterdam’s real estate market. We expected a long and difficult search but this wasn’t the case. We have seen quite a lot of houses in short time and in a month found a house of our dream. And awesome thing: the riddle of collecting documentation, arranging appointments and many other small things which aren’t easy for an expat was solved for us by Mie-Lan Kok Estate Estate Agency. Thanks a lot!
Mie-Lan is a real asset for an expat trying to make sense of the Dutch real estate market. She is very personable knowledgeable, and has a good feel for what you are looking for. I am grateful for her asistance in also finding a contractor to remodel my apartment and helping with sorting out the utilities. I recommend her highly!
