Klok Real Estate - Purchase Counseling - Home Buying Services - The Method

You want to buy a new house?


We will guide you professionally during the purchase process.

As a purchase counselor we will guide and advise you in buying a house which is for sale by another broker. During the entire purchase process - from the "match" with your future home to the legal completion - you would like full assurance. After the purchase of your house, you also want a guarantee that everything is 100 % ok. After the purchase you should not be faced with unpleasant legal, architectural and financial "surprises ". Besides that you also want to be sure that you have paid a very competitive price

Not only legal and construction aspects but also emotions play an important role. Purchasing a house is specialized and time-consuming, a project in itself with all the risks which should kept to a minimum. This requires expert guidance.



The method




Our method consists of a project-based approach. We will inform, support and advise you completely, from the first visit to the transfer to the notary regularly, both written and verbal. During the buying process we offer continuity and are your contact.

Our method is divided into about 4 phases:

  • Investigate

  • Negotiate

  • Conclude
