What our Clients Think About Our Service

  • 5 star review  Picking J&B Makelaars as my estate agent is one of the best decisions I’ve made since arriving in the Netherlands as a highly skilled migrant! They helped me find a home in a relatively short period of time within a very competitive housing market! I also used their expat services which drastically simplified my life! Their service covered a wide range from for example registering at the gemeente to shopping and sightseeing tips. It took a huge amount of pressure off of me allowing me to focus on settling into my work and life in the Netherlands. Overall exceptional service!

  • 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.
