House Search Service

Orientating and finding a house is not easy, especially from abroad but together with my ‘makelaar’ partners we are here to help you make your search easy and straightforward. I help, advice and assist you in your search for the perfect house, whether it’s (temporarily) renting or buying a property.
Based on your wishes and budget I do a custom property search for you and send you the information and links to the properties. When you like a property I make an appointment for viewing, if you are not available I will visit the property, ask your questions, take pictures and make a small video. When you like the property and want to sign a contract I will advise you and make sure that the agent has all the necessary information to formalise and draw up the contract.

Our Expat reviews

  • Very happy to recommend Christine Lang.
    After arriving from the UK and settling into an Airbnb, I had one month to find an apartment to my very tight specifications in Hilversum.
    Christine would send me a daily list of available apartments and set up the viewings.
    Once I had chosen my apartment she sat with me during the signing of contracts,
    translating and explaining every item. Once that was done, she helped me set up my utilities. All within a month!
    She took all the hassle out of the process for me and I had absolutely nothing to worry about.
    I couldn't have done it so easily without her.
    If you're in a similar situation as I was when I arrived (the housing market can be a bit daunting), then I recommend giving Christine a shout

  • Just wanted to say what a super star Christine Lang has been. I used her services for tutoring my son, and most latterly her services to find an apartment for my son.
    On both occasions Christine exceeded expectations, so would highly recommend!

  • In the same vein as a previous post earlier this month I would like to thank Christine Lang for all her help to myself and my family since having moved in to Hilversum all the way through to helping us move back to England again the beginning of this year.
    Her help has been invaluable. From help with schools, medical issues,looking after our cat whilst we were on holiday, to most recently helping with the details in moving out of our house in Hilversum and back to UK.
    If you’re an expat looking for help with practically anything, Christine Lang is your woman.

  • Hi all! I just moved here with my husband and 4 years old daughter.
    We wanted to take a moment to publically thank Christine Lang for helping us find a lovely little house - Christine has been amazing helping us also with lots of advice and info about the relocation process - I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a place to live in Hilversum.
    Many thanks as well to Michael Venediger who helped us with assembling all our Ikea furniture on a short notice- Mike is a great handyman, highly recommend you give him a call if you need work done in your home!
