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!

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.

Mie-Lan Kok makelaardij was voor mijn geen vraag maar een weet.

Ik ken Mie-Lan als vriendin en als teamplayer op het hockeyveld: ze is een terrier, ze bijt zich vast in dingen die ze wil bereiken; dus ook zaken die ze voor haar klanten wil bereiken en dat heb ik als zeer positief ervaren.

Maar ook haar collegas hebben die 200% inzet. Transparantie, vriendelijke zakelijkheid en nakomen van afspraken en vooral ook kennis van zaken. Alles straalt professionaliteit uit.

Ik heb met een gerust gevoel alles uit handen gegeven, van de aankoop van mijn nieuwe woning tot de verkoop van mijn ouderlijk huis.

Mie-lan weet wat je wil en vooral ook wat je niet wil en dat communiceert ze dan ook naar haar collegas zodat iedereen overal van op de hoogte is.

Mede hierdoor heb ik deze spannende tijd niet als erg stressvol ervaren en kijk ik er met plezier op terug en ben ik heel blij met mijn nieuwe woning!

Mie-Lan Kok was recommended by a friend as she had a very good experience buying a property. Being an expat it was difficult to make such a huge decision of buying a property in The Netherlands, but Marieke made the entire process so smooth and easy for us. We didnt feel any stress at all. We were informed of both positives and negatives of the house and the area, which we appreciated as that helped us in making the final decision. Considering that housing market in Haarlem is so competitive, Marieke collected all the necessary information in a very short time and we could close the deal in just 3 days. The entire deal was executed in a very professional and smooth manner.

Mie Lan Kok came highly recommended by a friend of ours. We could not have asked for a better service to fit our needs. Our circumstances were difficult as we were trying to make the purchase from Japan. Our agent, Nelleke, gave us great advice on when to visit to capitalize on the house viewing opportunities. She listened to our needs and helped us with the language barriers every step of they way. The information we were given was clear and detailed. We are so glad we used Mie Lan Kok and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone buying a home in Amsterdam.

Florian Sommer, Haarlem

I worked with Mie-Lan Kok to assist me in buying property in the Netherlands and had a very positive experience.
They where very much focused on finding the right place for me and did not try to press me into buying anything that was not a “perfect match”.

To describe them with a couple of works: Focused, friendly, knowledgeable, fair, customer orientated and a pleasure to work with

I can highly recommend Mie-Lan and her Estate Agency, especially for expats!

I used Mie Lan Kok estate agent for the purchase of my apartment. I went to Mie Lan Kok after a frustrating experience with another makelaar and after having looked around for an apartment for a number of months. What I immediately noticed was the care and attention provided by everyone at the agency. I had the pleasure of dealing with Nelleke, Marieke and Mie – Lan, and what I appreciated the most was their honesty in advising me on whether or not I should make an offer on an apartment. They genuinely cared about my interests, were patient, made effort to understand what I wanted, took time to investigate the apartment, and offered a lot of support and guidance. They were always available even outside of office hours. Buying an apartment is a stressful experience, and a big commitment so it is important to work with a makelaar that you can trust, and who will help you find the right home for you and that is exactly what you can expect with Mie-Lan Kok.

I wanted to buy a home in Amsterdam so met with a makelaar (not part of Mie-Lan Kok). We met for 15 minutes, he gave me little information, and he was expensive. Then I met with Marieke who sat with me for a full hour going through the process and answering questions. I found a home quickly, and Marieke helped with answering questions related to being an expat. This is a bonus but the company is run by all women. They are personal and caring. Marieke was great. She never pushed us to get a place and made sure to let us know all the downsides of a home to really get us to think about it. My friend used them for a year until he found a home, and my other friend found a home with them in a month

Michael Bulkeley & Laurie Villareal, Amsterdam

We had a great experience with the Mie-Lan Kok team. Nelleke, Marieke, Mie-Lan and the whole team went above and beyond to assist us in buying our first home in Amsterdam. We were incredibly pleased with their service, professionalism and level of expertise. It was a long, 12-month journey and they never tired of working with us. They were especially knowledgable of the needs of expats and did their best to look out for our best interests by pointing out everything we needed to know and consider along the way so that we could make a smart investment. If you’re an expat buying a home in the Netherlands, I’d strongly recommend hiring Mie-Lan Kok as you’d have a strong team on your side.
