Bart Bouwman
Makelaar RMT


Bart Started working at an NVM office in 2001 and throughout the years, specialized in the housing market and newly built properties. From the beginning of KNAP Makelaardij in 2014, Bart has put his focus and effort in the buy-to-let for a specific group of Dutch clients. This proved to be a very successful formula, and has since become one of the core businesses of our organization.


Of late, we see that expats are also getting more and more interested in buying for investment purposes. For that reason we also offer you our expertise when it comes to investing in property that is suitable for the rental market.

Maurice van der Kroft
Makelaar RMT


Around 2008, Maurice noticed a growing diversity in the group of buyers within the real estate market in Amsterdam. Especially in the region of De Zuidas, around 50% of the buyers was not originally from the Netherlands. This group of prospective buyers found it pretty hard to find the proper information and guidelines needed in this buying process. Maurice then realized that up until then, there hadn’t been a decent real estate website, aimed at Expats, that really offers an insight into this process.


So, we decided to launch KNAPEXPATBROKER.nl, a real estate site that is really useful for expats.
