Sander at VK Makelaars recently helped me through the process of purchasing a house in Haarlem. After six months and many viewings, we found the perfect place. If prior to that moment Sander had been great, from the bidding moment onwards he was absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend him enough – extremely professional, knowledgeable, supportive, honest and resourceful. He has the best local knowledge and network, which is essential if you want to find the right property in the Netherlands. His fees are absolutely in line with the norm, but his service is on a different level!

Thank you Sander, I look forward to showing you what the property has become once the works have been completed!

Sander Hoenderdos of VK Makelaars helped me excellently and expertly with the sale of my house. He was knowledgeable about the current housing market knowledgeable and super customer friendly! The agreed court fee is also correct and does not present you with any surprises. I would highly recommend this broker😊

We had a great experience with Sander from VK Makelaars. As expats, we needed a little extra support to understand all documentation and the buying process in the Netherlands. Sander was quick in his response time, patient with our questions and was also great at setting the right expectations for us in this competitive market which was much appreciated! Would highly recommend their services to fellow expats searching for their dream home in Haarlem.

Sander was extremely helpful in the search. He showed me places in Haarlem and when I later decided to look in Amsterdam he still accompanied me to the viewings.
He is also very patient and goes over the details of contracts etc very carefully.

Copper Engelsholm 105

We had a very nice time working with Floris and his team in the purchase and sale of our home. With the craziness in the housing market, it was important for us to work with someone you can trust.

Floris is very good at his job, knowledgeable about houses and gives his opinion honestly.

Thank you very much for this fine collaboration!

Very Good Service. Very nice that various communications were easily accessible via WhatsApp. As a result, fast reply and even outside regular office hours. The professional negotiation led to a smooth and very quick sale at a good price.

VK Makelaars uses a professional photographer and that resulted in perfect pictures.

A secure digital environment was also available to share and sign official documents.

Very satisfied!

Gisele from VK Makelaars has done an outstanding job during this whole process. Making sure the flat was in order to what I was looking for, the video call to show the place and all the details, deal with the contract and all the legal details until the check-in and some tips for someone who has just arrived in the Netherlands.

Tenant Schoterweg

We worked with Gisele Nader and Floris van Kuijeren. The experience was fantastic, from our first meeting in their office to learn what we were looking for, to arranging viewings (during the pandemic) to the eventual offer and negotiation. Their communication was nearly instant, information was spot on, Floris even made us an English language video explaining the sales contract in great detail.

Gisele is fluent in Portuguese, English and Dutch and Floris in Dutch and English. They are a great team for an expat to work with!

“The VK team has been tremendously succesfull in finding a proper tenant during a little slower market time, for a price higher than what their competitors were guessing. And this for a very competetive service price. I would reccomend them to anyone into renting out in Harleem.

“I would recommend this agent. I had a fantastic experience with Simon and the team at VK Makelaars. Simon really loves his job and values the satisfaction of his clients. I received support and guidance at every step. Great communication, attitude and price/quality. I would definitely recommend him to any expat that needs a reliable agent!

“Thank you Floris, Simon and Reggie for a smooth, fast and professional process to finding just the tenants for my flat. You listened to my vision of what kind of tenants I was looking for, guided me in my expectations, and helped me find lovely tenants. I appreciated in particular that you approached the search just like you would if this were your own property. You each went above and beyond in helping me throughout the process.”

“In addition to his professional knowledge of the housing market, this realtor also scores high in personal contact, In his empathy, his respect for the client and his sales skills. Knowing what people find important when buying a home and therefore realizing the highest possible for the property to be sold. We could not have hit it better. “

“I am an expat and felt a bit lost with the system here. Floris was incredible at explaining both the system but also the insights behind best strategies to get the best price and a successful purchase. It’s rare to find charismatic doers like him who are also excellent at communicating and hold a wealth of experience like his. If you are looking to buy you need him!”

We had Gisele Nader as a recommendation from a friend who had found and purchased a house within two months. After trying by ourselves and through another broker it became apparent that we’d be better off working with Gisele Nader from VK Makelaars just like our friend did.

Within the first call Gisele earned our trust in sharing her latest experience on dealing with the scarcity of properties, latest bidding, and took notes of our preferences, took into account cultural differeces, and more. In the same week, Gisele Nader already had gone ahead and scheduled two viewings for us, and in the third it was the house we ended up buying – all within the course of weeks.

Gisele Nader helped us navigate the paperwork required, understand all parties involved, and stuck with us every step of the way – I cannot recommend her enough moving forward.

“Floris was a wonderful real estate agent. We joke that we were likely his quickest clients ever (he negotiated the deal we found within 4 calendar days), but that didn’t stop him from working his hardest on our behalf. He got us a great deal on a house, helped us with all of the details, and was very easy to get in contact with. He reminded us of all important details, connected us with a mortgage advisor and a notary and made everything happen smoothly and on time.
One other thing to know about Floris is that he helps you out with his large network of other service providers. Floris has helped us find a chimney sweep for our new place by asking around! This, to me, shows his upmost commitment to helping your family get perfectly settled in your new place while removing a lot of the barriers to doing that.
Honestly we couldn’t recommend Floris more highly to anyone considering buying in Haarlem. “

“The purchase process with Floris was very nice; he thought along with us throughout the process. He could be present at every viewing and after that he really took the time to discuss the house extensively with us. Floris was always easily accessible, both by phone and mail and the communication was very approachable. Floris is enthusiastic, but also critical where necessary. And most importantly: with his help we managed to buy a great house! We would definitely recommend others to work with Floris.”

“After Floris successfully helped me purchase my dream home, I also entrusted him with selling my current home. Glad to hear, because that went just as smoothly. Floris arranged many viewings and also took the time to let everyone come by. It is a pleasant party and I would do business with them again in the future.”

“The communication with the broker was very good, among other things because he was always accessible and responded quickly via both email and WhatsApp. Moreover, the cooperation was also good, significantly better than my expectations, it was pleasant and familiar. Expectation was more of a business, even cold, relationship. In this case, however, it was a professional and pleasant cooperation. Everything was double checked and you were kept informed of the progress. As a result, I could really trust the realtor. A realtor who fights for you and does his utmost. I recommend everyone to work with VK Broker. An honest and very trustworthy realtor. “

“VK Brokers helped us buy our first home. We were tipped off to this estate agent by friends who were very satisfied. It turned out to be a golden tip, because Floris did a professional job from start to finish (over a period of more than 3 months). Because it was our first house we had many questions, but Floris took his time and made sure everything was clear. The result is that we were able to buy our house for the price we had in mind, so we are very satisfied!”

“Purchased a house within a week. After quick action from our realtor Floris, we had 2 viewings within a week. For us the second house was prefect. After good and fast consultation the house was bought below the asking price. Switching between us, the broker and the selling party was very easy. Our broker had short lines of communication with other brokers and professionals, such as our mortgage advisor, the appraiser and the structural inspector. Quickly arranged and therefore able to purchase quickly.”

Buyers Kruidbergerweg 105

“We already knew Floris from the purchase of our new house and because this went very pleasantly, we also asked him to sell our old house. This was again a perfect experience. In the early stages Floris took us through all the considerations regarding strategy and asking price. He works with a good photographer who really goes for the perfect picture. Floris knows the market and the brokers in the area very well so he could act quickly and clearly when we went on sale. During the sales process he kept us informed and the end result was more than great. Floris is an energetic, passionate real estate agent with both feet on the ground, highly recommended!”

“Floris from VK Makelaars helped us very well with the negotiations for the house we wanted. We were able to search for a nice house ourselves, but to actually get it is not easy in this market. Floris was on top of things, constantly letting us know how things were going and successfully advising us on strategy. We would definitely recommend VK Makelaars if you are looking for a house!”

Salesperson Waldeck Pyrmontstraat 29

“We were looking to buy a house for over a year and we finally found a house that we fell in love with. After a lot of e-emails and calls with the house owners it seemed it would be difficult and negotiations were falling apart. That’s when we were lucky enough to contact Floris van Kuijeren. He was incredibly fast, diligent and pleasant to deal with. He gave honest advice, even if it’s wasn’t what we wanted to hear (which is extremely refreshing!). He handled everything perfectly. We can’t recommend Floris enough. Thanks to him, we went from a situation where a completed sale was a dim possibility to us having our first BBQ in our new home.”
