Tom is the client’s eyes and ears
‘If I work for a top-tier brand, I’m going to find them a top-tier location,‘ Tom says, brimming with ambition. ‘The people who work there all have a unique personality, so the property should, too.’ It Is an approach that helped him find a chic industrial space across from Amsterdam Central Station for a quintessentially Amsterdam business that works with other international companies.
Tom studied Business Administration, Retail & Management in Alkmaar at the university (HBO) level and specialised in commercial real estate. It was an intentional choice, and high-quality matchmaking is his top priority. He enjoys the advisory role that his job affords him and is always keen to explore every angle.
Tom is a pro at finding needles in haystacks, like the luxury location for a plastic surgeon’s office, a nose specialist looking for the perfect place. ‘Thanks to my network, I found a property under the market in Oud-Zuid,’ says Tom, ‘It’s a beautifully renovated building with a boutique feel, which is just what the client wanted.’
Most of the time you can find Tom in the city. ‘I meet high-end clients at Ferilli’s, and head to Verhulst with creative no-nonsense types. I tailor each meeting to the client. In my job, everything you do is tailor-made.’
