CBRE broadens its services in residential real estate with acquisition of Eefje Voogd Makelaardij
CBRE today announced the acquisition of Eefje Voogd Makelaardij B.V., a leading specialist in advisory services for new construction sales and rentals for multifamily properties in the Amsterdam area.
With this expansion, real estate advisor CBRE is entering the consumer housing market in the Netherlands for the first time, adding to the company’s customer base.
Eefje Voogd Makelaardij will continue to operate under its own trade name with founder Eefje Voogd continuing to lead a team of 30 employees. It expects to expand into other cities in the Netherlands as a result of the acquisition.
Marco Hekman, CBRE’s CEO Netherlands and Divisional President, Advisory Services, Continental Europe, said: “The consumer knowledge that Eefje Voogd Makelaardij has in the housing market is a perfect complement to our existing knowledge of the commercial investment market. Due to the strong demand for housing, there is great interest from investors in new-build developments. We will now be able to provide a growing number of clients in the residential sector with a full range of advisory and transactional services.”
Eefje Voogd, founder and CEO of Eefje Voogd Makelaardij, said: “We have experienced significant growth in recent years, and we are seeing an increase in demand not only for the sale of homes, but also our consultancy services as well as data and research. In addition, we are increasingly being asked to work in cities beyond the Amsterdam region. We need a strong, solid operational and strategic partner to continue to provide personal, high-quality services. We found such a partner in CBRE. I look forward to a great collaboration.”
