Buying a property
When buying a home it is wise to enlist the services of an estate agent who can advise you about the current housing market, the process involved purchasing a property and how to submit a competitive but realistic negotiating offer. Our brokers are experts in the local market, are up to date on market trends and are familiar with all aspects of purchasing and selling as well as the finer legal points. Your real estate agent can take care of the whole process for you. When you have found your dream home and you decide to go ahead you will have to deal with the estate agent representing the seller who will be guarding his interests. By having an estate agent who represents you, you have an advisor who will have your interests at heart and who will negotiate a sharp deal for you. With experience, expertise and knowledge of the local market your agent will arrange to have your property purchased under the best conditions possible for a good price.

Really professional! Could not be happier! After months of searching the right property I found out about this agency. They have listened to all my requests and managed to arrange viewings for a couple of properties that matched what I have asked for. It was a happy end on a very difficult seller's market.

I have worked professionally with Ciara for 5 years now and have always found her very honest, caring and professional. I am a landlord and the Amstel Property Agency is the only letting service that I would use as Ciara is upfront about fees and always finds tenants quickly. Apart from that she has been instrumental in helping out with issues on the apartment such as calling plumbers, electricians and even sorting out personal tenant matters. I would definitely recommend Ciara and the Amstel Property Agency to any landlord.

I am from India and was really confused and tensed about searching homes in Amsterdam. With Ciara, the search became easy, fun and efficient. She has been really helpful and supportive in trying to cover all our requirements for a house. I must say, Amstel Housing with Ciara make a lovely team. Thanks Ciara for making our lives easy in Amsterdam. Dhr. Gaurav
Mevr. Dunne is een bijzonder aangename persoonlijkheid die heel transparant en deskundig haar kennis deelt. Een verrijking voor de wereld van makelaardij. Hier kunnen andere makelaars veel van leren. Zeer aan te bevelen om hier zaken mee te doen. Dhr. Sybrand de Jager

Ciara found me a near perfect apartment within my budget, and I received the keys shortly after. A thorough inventory was carried out, the administration process was talked through every step of the way (this was very reassuring as an expat not speaking Dutch). I've been in the property for almost 2 months and Ciara is still on hand to assist with energy suppliers etc etc, in this respect I cannot speak of Amstel Property Agency highly enough. I should add that the service was (and is) always carried out with a smile! (Expat client)
