Mevrouw de Aankoopmakelaar was founded by Esther van Heteren and is today, a professionally managed franchise operation, offering the services of a Home Purchasing Agent in Amstelveen, Amsterdam, Diemen, Leiden, Rotterdam and The Hague, with new cities being added all the time. Agents operating as Mevrouw de Aankoopmakelaar are carefully screened, trained and supported by Esther to deliver the same quality service she has been recognised and rewarded for.

In 2012 Esther was voted the ‘Best Real Estate Broker in the Netherlands’ by the Wieisdebestmakelaar (who is the best real estate broker), recognition she again received in 2013 with first place in South-Holland and Runner-up for the Netherlands. Esther comes from a family of property managers, brokers and agents and spent much of her career in the family business in Arnhem. She relocated to The Hague and in 2008 set up Mevrouw de Aankoopmakelaar which has grown in leaps and bounds, and has been recognised by the industry and public in numerous acclamations. High in the scoring for her services are: enthusiasm, quickness of response, keeping to agreements, creativity and market knowledge.
