  • 5 star review  Bridgette and Julia have been lifesavers with our move to the Netherlands and sourcing a rental property. They are always willing to assist wherever possible with advice and information and always going out of their way to help. A great real estate agency and can recommend them highly for both rentals and for the buying of real estate.

  • positive review  As part of our move to Netherlands We started to investigate the best ways to find a rental apartment, so many recommendations for Bridgette Ball and her team, we approached her with our requirements and timeframes, we were lucky enough to have a trip planned to see the country with the family, we had a whirlwind trip where Bridgette arranged a day of rental viewings for us, we found a wonderful home in Vleuten, Bridgette managed to secure us our rental which often in the Netherlands is not an easy task, thanks to Bridgette for bringing a wealth of knowledge and for helping us with guidance on life in the Netherlands, we are so very happy in our lovely home.

  • positive review  We were assigned an agent dedicated to us. This was Lerize; what a pleasure dealing with her. She went to various properties, Whatsapp video called us so we could see the places on offer. After the 4th and 5th visit, we received two positive offers. Lerize kept us in the loop 100% of the time. She managed the handover etc and also sorted the gas/electricity for us. Would highly recommend Bridgette and Team
