What we do
After a first (free of charge) meeting, you decide yourself whether we as a purchasing agent are a benefit for you. If you choose us, we will make sure you stay informed of the all the houses and apartments that are for sale at all the estate agents in your desired price range and neighbourhoods.
When you see a nice house or apartment that seems worth looking at, you can decide whether for a first viewing appointment, we join you or not. If it seems perfect, then we will look at the property together. During the viewing of the property, we will examine the structural condition, explain any plans for the area, look at any legal issues and of course value the house or apartment. If you want to make an offer for the property, we will negotiate (in consultation with you) for the best possible price and terms. If you then purchase the home, we will take care of the handling of the right deeds and advise you in getting an appropriate financing and /or insurance. Therefore, we provide the service for the entire purchase process and we would like to stay your estate agent, even after the transfer of ownership at the notary office.
