The key to Nicolas Dedeurwaerder's success
The first few minutes of the morning are focused on the theme of motivation. Nicolas tells us about his beginnings as a real estate agent and how he managed to overcome all the obstacles. The young Belgian had one goal: to be the best in the world. A challenge that may seem impossible but which he brilliantly accomplished at the end of his first year at Engel & Völkers.
How did Nicolas Dedeurwaerder become the best rental agent in the world?
In his early beginnings, Nicolas tells us that he gave a major importance to the study of his territory: the Sablon. He started out in the field, letting himself go to hours of networking with the inhabitants and main actors of this charming district. He tells us that he has always taken every opportunity to exchange his business card in cafés, restaurants, even in discotheques when the nights in Brussels are the busiest. In the shops of the Sablon (hairdressers, shops, cafés...), he likes to offer the GG: the famous magazine of the Engel & Völkers group which combines real estate with the themes of architecture, fashion, travel and luxury in general.
After six months of prospection, Nicolas Dedeurwaerder finally sees his work bear fruit. He experiences this moment as a real takeoff. He signs his first transaction and then the following ones follow one another to reach a total volume of about a hundred rentals per year. In order to support this result, it attaches great importance to the service it offers to owners, tenants and buyers. He confides to us that he likes to exceed standards by advising his clients on the best addresses in the neighbourhood, for example.
