What our customers say

I am delighted that I chose Welocate's Home Buyers Plan. It greatly simplified the process for me and my house purchase went smoothly. As an expat, the buying experience was new to me and a little daunting so the availability of the buying agent and the advice I received was extremely helpful. I was able to ask many questions and always received a prompt answer. I also liked the access to all of our documents via the web portal as it made it easy to see the status on the various steps at any time.

I really find your services fast and helpful. I always received quick responses from you for all my questions and I appreciate your kind and friendly approach as a foreigner in this country, you even made translations for me! Thank you very much.

Reyhan Ozturk, Amsterdam

Welocate was extremely useful in the whole process of buying a house. Perfect English, very friendly, quick reaction in setting up whatever is needed and all this for a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend.

S.C. Senior Software Engineer, Zuid-Holland

After I found a property that was ideal for my family, Welocate was suggested to help me with the rest. They were really useful to me for providing an understanding of the process of buying a property in the Netherlands. Welocate also secured a local agent who supported me in the negotiations with the seller, arranged all of the contractual matters and took care of the Notary and hand over of keys. Since moving in I've also had assistance from Welocate making sure all the utilities are taken care of, and for some help finding a company to make some changes to the property. I would definitely recommend Welocate to anyone that is looking forward to buying a property in the Netherlands.

The Robinson family, Groningen

Having everything handled centrally with a single contact and a fixed competitive price takes off a lot of the stress related to the procedure of buying a house. Overall, we do recommend their services.

Mr. Arous, Amsterdam

My experience working with Welocate has been fantastic! They were attentive, always available and guided me through the process at each step. They connected me with experts who know how to best work with expats. I feel confident in their services and would highly recommend them to others in the home buying process.

The Weaver family, Haarlem

Although buying a house in the Netherlands seems like a simple task, it might not be such one for an expat. Coordination of all professionals involved is Welocate service, but if a problem which is not part of their service specs occurs, you can definitely count on them for help! I can only say that without Welocate dedication, not only that I wouldn’t been able to own a house, I would also suffer a huge financial loss.

Herewith I want to thank you for the great service over the last couple of month. From the first appointment showing interest in an object until the notary handling. I really appreciated the speed of action as well as the professional and reliable advice during the whole period of purchase. Personally I wish you all the best for the near future.
