"... until we met Esther"
Being expats and the state of the buying market right now, we were quite stressed out about the whole process... until we met Esther.

She has been an incredible help to us! Her knowledge of the area and what to look for and take note of was invaluable.

Always professional, friendly and kind.
Each step of the way was explained to us clearly, and in the end all we really had to do was view homes and pick the one we loved.

If you're looking for a real estate agent we absolutely recommend Esther van Dijk 10/10

"Professional approach"
In our search for a house, after having lived abroad as expats for many years, we came into contact with Esther as the real estate agent for the selling party of a house we were interested in.

Her professional approach and clear communication with us was a breath of fresh air. Her expertise, understanding of the housing market in West Friesland and the surrounding areas, and experience in assisting expats were very beneficial.

This saved us a great deal of stress during the busy period from viewing to the transfer of the house. We highly recommend Esther van Dijk Real Estate to everyone! Esther, thank you again for everything!
