Thanks to Barry, we managed to buy the family home we wanted for a fair price. If we buy another home, I’ll hire him again.He helped us set realistic expectations based on our budget and find the right property in the neighborhood we wanted. That’s no small feat in Amsterdam. More importantly, he helped us win the bid.In Amsterdam, to win the bid, you need to 1) place the right bid at the right moment and 2) establish credibility with the seller that you will not pull out and that you have the funds. That’s where Barry comes in. His reputation, experience and knowledge precedes him. Everybody knows him and when he represents you, your bid is spot on and is taken seriously.Some traits... that I particularly appreciated with Barry:- He knows the market and has been through multiple cycles. So his opinions are fact-based- He gives you the fair value for each property and leaves it up to you if you want to overbid- He checks all the docs and makes sure there are no bad surprises- He is patient and does not pressure you to make a bid- He does not try to make you spend your full budget, i.e., his goal is to find the right house for the right price, not maximize his commission- He tells is like it is- He is responsive and reachable- He collected the keys and did the inspection for us as we were on holidaysThanks Barry, a pleasure to work with a service oriented professional.lees meer

This is the second time Barry has helped us with buying a family home, and again we are very sure that Barry's support and advice is what made the difference for us to make a winning bid in a very competitive market. Barry is clear, confident and direct in his guidance whilst being supportive throughout the journey. Barry's client-focused service level is very high - he is very responsive in communication, available, and very importantly we always know Barry has the best interests of his clients in mind. We are sure that without Barry's guidance we would not have won our bids. This makes Barry's support for certain very good value, and we would work with him again in a flash if needed.If... you are an expat trying to navigate this market - please do not look further than working with Barry. You definitely will be pleased.lees meer

Barry is a great guy and it was a pleasure working with him. Very responsive and works extremely fast. He saw my purchase through from beginning to end and was always showing good options. Would definitely recommend him if you are looking to buy a property in the Amsterdam area.

I highly recommend Barry for a housing search! I was able to quickly buy my first apartment in Amstelveen. Of course I was nervous about the market and expecting the process to be long and grueling but Barry found my place within 1 week and made the process so simple I couldn't believe it. Very happy to have chosen him as my agent.

We hired Barry to buy our first house in Amsterdam. He was kind, down to earth, and he got us the house on our first offer. We never thought we could buy a house so quickly in this crazy market. We couldn't recommend him more.

I would highly recommend working with Barry, especially if you're new to the city and looking to buy your first home. The process was incredibly seamless, painless and efficient. Barry was super kind, honest and very attentive to your needs – plus he's got great hair! In addition, everyone Barry recommends (mortgage brokers, contractors, etc) carried the same quality of professionalism.

I only positive feedback to provide to the Burgemeester Vastgoed team, and especially to Barry Burgemeester.I truly enjoyed the support through all my questions about this housing purchase journey and relentless help and explanations from the start.Once we found "the" house, Barry was tireless in trying to close the deal and guided me throughout the mortgage process too.From what I've learned in this process, I will definitely team up with Barry again, hopefully, to find whatever my next house will be.Thank you very much!Pedro M.

Barry was my real estate agent that helped me buy my first house in Amsterdam Oud West - and what a delightful experience it was!Barry has a deep understanding of the real estate market in Holland. He makes sure to find houses to his clients that are very much in line with their requirements.He is proactive, super responsive and always one step ahead when it comes to booking viewings for your future house!He understands the dynamics of the market and he's a great advisor when it comes to price bidding for your new home.All in all, I can only say good things about Barry and I really recommend him for your next house purchase! He makes your buying experience (which is usually a very... stressful process) a very smooth and enjoyable one!lees meer

I can't recommend Barry enough. As an expat, navigating the Amsterdam real estate market alone is next to impossible. Having reached out to a couple other agents before Barry, I was discouraged at their lack of communication, locked-in contract types, and unclear support (fixed number of visits, only visiting for a second viewing (in a market like this?), etc.). Barry is the complete opposite. Transparency, easy going, and seemingly unlimited support all in one.Barry is truly professional, and understands how overwhelming this experience can be to new home buyers. He is responsive to messages, clear in his communication, and doesn't get annoyed when you ask (probably) dumb questions. He... also is patient, and not pushy. He visited a handful of houses with me after being excited about one that we saw earlier, letting me see for myself what was out there before I ultimately ended up purchasing the first one he recommended anyways!He also has useful contacts with contractors, mortgage advisers, etc.I couldn't have done it without him. Thanks for everything Barry!lees meer

Barry helped us buy our new apartment in Amsterdam and we could not be happier. This is the second time we work with him (he helped us in the purchase of our first apartment) and  both times we were extremely satisfied. We highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of buying a place in Amsterdam.Barry is very competent, knows the house market very well and he also knows many other real estate agents, which makes the process rather smooth. He is always available for questions and additional requests and explains clearly each step of the way.

As an expat and first time buyer, I felt quite overwhelmed at the idea of buying a property in Amsterdam and thought it would take me dozens of visits to feel I was making the right choice.Barry made me feel at ease and I was able to "jump" and make an offer after my 3rd visit. At some point he took the decision to pull out of the bidding which was becoming too high "for that price we will find much better". I'm glad he took that decision for me which made me feel secure in knowing that I wouldn't end up overpaying for a property.4th visit was the one!Thank you so much Barry!

Barry offered us a fantastic service when looking for an apartment in Amsterdam. The city was completely new to us an Barry guided us through all the important steps. He made it possible that we could buy an apartment stress-free even though we were not based in Amsterdam. He also gave us very helpful connections regarding a mortgage. In the end we found a great apartment in Amsterdam and we are very happy about our new place. All thanks to Barry. He is also highly responsive and fast - exactly what you need for apartment hunting in Amsterdam. We highly recommend his services for everyone who wants to find a new place fast and stress-free.
