Buying and selling



Selling  your property the right way, with Engel & Völkers. We can help you sell your property the best way possible

You want to sell your property as quickly as possible, at the best possible price? Turning up the next day with the right customer on your doorstep is something we cannot always promise, yet Engel&Völkers, as one of the leading real estate companies specializing in the buying and selling of premium quality residential properties, can guarantee a full service starting immediately after contact has been established. When choosing your real estate agency you should bear in mind that the way the company presents itself reflects how this company presents its property.


What advantages does Engel&Völkers offer to ensure property is sold in the “right” way?  Our standardized and distinct shop concept strengthens the presence of your property on the market. We provide access to international and solvent customers, especially important now that Amsterdam is so popular with foreigners. 

Successful marketing of your property starts with the valuation. Our real estate professionals have in-depth knowledge about the market and have been trained by the  NVM ( Dutch association of real estate agents) and Engel&Völkers Real Estate Academy to acquire the necessary specialist know-how. They will determine the potential of your property in cooperation with you. All our activities are aimed at identifying the top price achievable in the market and to find the right buyer for you. The promise of achieving the highest possible selling price is not the only important factor, the reasons justifying it also count. 

Once all the object-relevant information is available, the best selling price has been agreed upon and the ideal marketing consultation stage has been defined, the assignment is agreed in writing in the brokerage agreement. Coming together is the start – working together is the success!  



Targeted marketing strategy for your property


To emphasize the uniqueness of your property, an individual marketing concept will be created to provide the guideline for the entire marketing process. First we will offer your property in a discreet and targeted manner to our select list of prospective buyers. If we don’t find a suitable buyer for your property among our 300,000 actively searching clients worldwide, Engel&Völkers will, with your agreement, implement the marketing strategy.

In the first phase, the marketing measures are focused on customers in the immediate vicinity of your property. In order to reach the potential buyers from your immediate neighborhood, or those actively looking for a property, we usually place our most effective means of local advertising:   the “For Sale” sign, directly in front of your house. Local and national marketing measures: Creation of a sales ad (exposé). Presentation in the shop window. Inserts in the local printing media. Direct marketing measures such as mailing actions. Presentation on the international Engel&Völkers website. Open house events. If the desired buyer does not come from the area close to the property, many real estate agencies have to rely solely on their personal and regional contacts. Engel & Völkers, in contrast, also offers you access to international and solvent customers. We offer you an international marketing network for your property. National and international marketing measures World access via our website Cross-selling between all Engel&Völkers shops. Insert in the GG magazine – the company’s own architecture and lifestyle magazine Inserts in national and international newspapers and publications

 A guidance at the highest level from A to Z. We will assist you skillfully from the first contact until well after the transfer deed at the notary. 


When purchasing or selling real estate our brokerage fee is between 1 and 2% ex VAT on the realized sale price and is depending on the marketability and price of the object.
