Mr. Machtan
I would recommend this broker

After buying and selling a house 8 years earlier, I consciously chose to work again with real estate agency Vogelenzang de Jong. And for good reason. Once again, I feel very well supported in many areas. Personal, but also business. And that was necessary because there were several obstacles to overcome, both legally, in the selection process, in responding alertly and in negotiating. Arnoud has helped me stay focused on what is important to me, even in the longer term. And that's nice, because buying a house is exciting, so trusting your agent is very nice!

We are very pleased with Arnoud Adriaanse who guided us well throughout the entire process. He has a very good view of the housing market and was always available. Arnoud gave us a brief overview of those interested at the end of a viewing session. Very knowledgeable broker who knows what he's talking about. The back office is also easily accessible and kept us informed about the status of the number of scheduled viewings.

Ms. Visser
I would recommend this broker

Had a good consultation beforehand what a strategically good sales price would be. I had advice about photos and videos. Had a completely carefree and advisory role during viewings and negotiations, but left the final decision to us. Totally good price/quality ratio and would recommend that everyone work with Vogelenzang- de Jong to sell a house.

Mr. Lagendaal W.J.A.
I would recommend this broker

I recommend this broker to everyone. We found Vogelenzang de Jong real estate to be very pleasant. Our buying agent was Pascal de Nijs, he is honest, committed, decisive, knowledgeable and a pleasant person to work with. Pascal knew a lot to say about the neighborhood and he was honest, giving constructive criticism about the house and the surroundings. Thanks to his decisive approach, we “won” the “bid war” thanks to him. Pascal is very easy to reach by phone, we could always call him if we had any questions. Thanks to our good experience, we also engaged Vogelenzang and de Jong as selling agents to sell our current home.

Mr. Van Roosmalen
I would recommend this broker

Correct agreements. We always received excellent feedback on a regular basis during the sales process. Good market vision and sales guidance, both for me as a seller, but also for the buyer. It is not the cheapest broker, but all value for money. And then cheap is very relative and well worth the money. What matters in the end is, of course, the end result and the big picture. And that was such that I highly recommend this agent (Arnoud) to you.
