I look at the long-term value in my work, and therefore I look at the relationship with my clients as long term as well. I am constantly looking at the choices my clients need to make, and how I can assist them in making the best choice. I have worked for some of my clients for more than 15 years. My work, and that of my team, is based on confidence and trust. For me, these are the key values that I bring to my clients.

Director Social Real Estate
Within Colliers I am jointly responsible for the social real estate department. I have fifteen years of experience as a real estate advisor in the social sector, especially in care. I advise healthcare institutions on, among other things, vision issues, strategy, (financial) feasibility and cooperation. In the Netherlands, we face a number of challenges when it comes to the future of healthcare and real estate. Being part of beautiful, creative and renewed ideas that contribute to the solution gives me energy.
My ambition and focus within Colliers is on connecting and collaborating between different departments, generating enthusiasm for healthcare (real estate) and further strengthening the team.
