My name is Ben Engelsman. After successfully finishing my B.A. in the Middle East Political Sciences, I decided to dedicate my time to real estate, which I realized is my true passion.

My experience started hands-on, by deeply studying the Dutch market and investing in rental properties.

I founded Diagonal Makelaardij to provide our clients easy access to the Dutch real estate market. A place where customers can feel free to advise about their plans and ideas, not paying by the minute.  

We're House Hunters who stand out from their competitors by thinking out of the box!


We are differentiating our office from traditional brokers by serving both conventional real estate and investment consultancy services.
We believe in continuous communication with our clientele by creating a business community that offers them the newest offers and keeps them updated on new regulations and trends in the Dutch real estate market.
