Arno Fransen - Smit and Heinen | Amsterdam

As a certified real estate agent (broker and appraiser) in Amsterdam, I am blessed by spending my days biking in beautiful Amsterdam; to discover new buildings and meeting great people. I try to provide all my clients the comfort they need in this ‘overheated ‘ real estate market.

I bring 13+ years of experience in this business to the table, I have managed two renovations of my own, Therefore I can share my experiences with you (and the struggles) of remodeling, which can be essential for buying property in a city like Amsterdam. I have architectural knowledge, budget- and time management skills, and the ability to find that perfect ‘gem’ for you in this market.

Our office (Smit&Heinen) is a leading brand in Amsterdam over the past 16 years, and we have a very well-known position in the market and one of the better networks when it comes to property. In addition to this, I was chairman of the Young Estate Agents Amsterdam (JMA) for two years. With a solid network I know who to contact, and to work with, and how to get you the best deal. If a beer once in a while is a necessary evil to go the extra mile for you, then so it must be.........

I'm easy going, communicative, strong negotiator and responsive. Get in touch with me by phone, WhatsApp or mail. Let’s meet up for a coffee and beat the competition!
