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.
