Both ERA vb&t Makelaars and vb&t Verhuurmakelaars are very much aware that the real estate sector is subject to continuous change. These changes are particularly evident in newly constructed houses, especially in terms of digitisation. The majority of all new construction projects (to let or to sell) are put on the market in the form of a dedicated project website. This project website is then linked to a digital customer file from which all communication is coordinated. This is sometimes at the expense of personal contact. It is our job to maintain this important part of the process.
For this reason, we have put together a new construction team that operates in cooperation with vb&t Verhuurmakelaars. The right strategy is determined in consultation with our clients. We are convinced that the right strategy makes an important contribution to the success of every project. We communicate with the other stakeholders, such as the marketing agency and option managers.
As a client, you will enjoy the privilege of a single point of contact!
Meet the team!
Patricia Goudswaard | Director / Registered property consultant
I worked as an (independent) property consultant in the Helmond and Eindhoven regions, as part of the ERA makelaardij PLUS formula, for many years. On 1 October 2015, I started working for ERA vb&t Makelaars again. My focus is on the acquisition and advice on new developments. In addition, I was appointed to put together the new construction team, which has been active for quite some time now and which I’m very proud of! Listings of newly-built homes have grown so much since our start that we have been able to expand our team with another property consultant and an online marketer!
Inge Lewandowski | Property consultant new construction
Inge is our rental and new construction consultant, mainly for our office in Helmond. During the past few years, she successfully supervised new construction projects such as the Groene Loper, Suytkade and Brandevoort, both for owner-occupied and rented homes. Inge is a very committed and enthusiastic property consultant. She’ll do everything to guide the buyer and/or tenant to find their new home. Her years of experience in and knowledge of Helmond makes her an excellent property consultant for both purchase and rental advice.
Femke de Laat | Registered property consultant / New construction property consultant
Femke is very well-informed of both developments in the market and the sale of new construction projects. She’s particularly active in the Eindhoven region. She has successfully supervised many projects, such as Animali, Gewoon Eindhoven and Schrijverskwartier in Eindhoven. Within the new construction team, Femke will be involved in both advising clients and in the selling/letting of new homes. Femke has recently obtained the title of new construction specialist, awarded by the Dutch Association of Real Estate Brokers and Real Estate Experts (NVM).
Karlijn Kraan | Junior property consultant (trainee)
Karlijn is the first point of contact for prospective buyers/tenants of a newly-built house. Karlijn will provide the new construction team with office and other general support. Within this context, she acts as the first point of contact for customers. She’s aware of all available new construction projects and will be happy to assist you from our office in Eindhoven. Karlijn is at your service and can’t wait to help you!
Bregje Visser | Senior property consultant
Bregje started this year as a trainee consultant within our new construction team. After successfully completing her real estate training, she can proudly call herself a senior property consultant. She settled into our team very quickly and now conducts the new construction interviews for various projects! She has made herself indispensable in a very short period of time!
Margot Bertels | New construction stand-in
Margot Bertels is our sweeper keeper. She provides administrative support when necessary. Margot is very commercially-minded and is the sunshine in our office.
We also work with flexible employment contracts and independent property consultants who can easily be called up at peak times. They’re all colleagues who are very commercially driven and perfect for use as hosts or hostesses, as and when necessary.
