Fellow expat, are you ready to buy yourself a house?

As real estate brokers, who practically invest in real estate, we believe that every house you plan to purchase, you need to see as a

long term investment.

As such, it would be wise to hire a professional who knows to recognize a good deal, decisively negotiate on your behalf, and of course, patient enough not to compromise on your dream home.

It is our personal service and broad perspective that makes us stand out from our competitors.

Our Vision

Providing expats easy access to the Dutch housing market by offering personal and professional services in the real estate field.

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 studying the Dutch market in-depth and investing in rental properties. That's when I officially founded Diagonal Makelaardij, a real estate agency designed to offer locals and expats 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.  

A type of brokerage agency that stands out by thinking outside 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.
