Amsterdam Estate Brokers works with independent agent who all have their own area of expertise. As a franchise formula, we encourage the targeted approach whereby we ask each agents to focus on, for example, a neighborhood, market segment or target group with which he or she has an affinity. Filipe: "This way of working strengthens each other and we can share relevant information and knowledge with clients and colleagues. In this way we are becoming stronger as a collective. The office informs us as agents every quarter regarding the number of relocations, the current housing supply, average house prices, relevant demographic information, hotspots in the neighborhood, community centers, schools and companies that are considered above average."
