Smit and Heinen Brokers

Van Woustraat 161, 1074 AK Amsterdam


Welcome to Amsterdam and my profile.
Buying,selling or renting a property in Amsterdam or the surrounding areas? Take a deep breath. The housing market is a tough one to crack, prices went up a lot the past years. But nothing is impossible. Our sales and purchase numbers of Smit & Heinen Makelaars and Appraisers proofs our successes in this market.

I am a certified real estate agent (broker) and property appraiser as well managing director of our office in De Pijp, Amsterdam. I think the Amsterdam housing market is the best working field for an agent out there. Our city is full of unique buildings and houses with a history. That is why I am not only active as a real estate agent (broker), but also till recently as chairman of the Makelaarsvereniging Amsterdam (The MVA is the professional organisation for estate agents active in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area) and auction commissioner at the Eerste Amsterdamse.

For buying or selling your property the agency fee varies between 1% and 1.5% of the selling/purchase price, depending on the price range. All our services and pricing are tailor-made for you.
- Selling property: range 1.0 % - 1.5% (INCLUDING 21% V.A.T.)
- Buying property: range 1.0 % - 1.5% (INCLUDING 21% V.A.T.)
- To lease out property: 1 months' rent (Excl. 21% V.A.T.) - charged to landlord.
