Brokers of Amsterdam House Hunting

Amsterdam House Hunting was founded in early 1997, and ever since that day the professional real estate agency has helped hundreds of expats find their dream home in the Dutch capital. To this day, Jaap and Ruben still help expats with buying, selling or renovating their dream home.

This is why we do what we do

We had a few difficulties when going through the purchasing process, but Jaap was the only person that talked any sense and was always quick to respond and guide us accordingly (and sometimes play the part of psychiatrist). He was a source of comfort throughout and you shouldn’t even consider using anyone else. Thanks Jaap!

Ulla and Craig

If you are serious about finding the perfect house in Amsterdam, having fun while you do it, and getting the best deal, you cannot find a better partner than Jaap. Moving house is frustrating and scary – we felt very lucky to find someone who could skillfully navigate the market, manage expat procedures, and get the deal done. We felt like old friends, not new customers.

I simply don’t think I would’ve been able to buy my flat without Jaap Russchen’s expertise and advice. The process can be gruelling when one is unfamiliar with a country, and my mortage brokers positively told me the sale would have fallen through had it not been for Jaap’s mediation at various key stages. His deadpan humour also helps making the process more bearable.

Jaap is an amazing guide through the maze that is buying a home in Amsterdam. You need him at your side. He is kind, patient, easy going, well informed and well connected, with amazing people skills. He made us feel like we are old friends and he is just helping us get our dream home. Anyone thinking about buying real estate in Amsterdam should get in touch with Jaap.
