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.
“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!”
“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.”
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!
