Before Colliers International I worked at Dynamis one of the largest Dutch real estaste consultants in the Netherlands, where I worked as a research manager in a similar position to my current position.

As Junior Research Consultant I am focusing mostly on the Residential and Retail markets.
I joined Colliers as a Research consultant in 2020. My main focus will be on the office- and retail markets. The research team supports other business lines by providing data and data-analyses. Another main occupation of the team is the publishing of news articles on different topics within the field of real estate.

In March 2021, I started as a research consultant at Colliers. By collecting and analyzing data, the Research team provides valuable insights to support the internal business lines as good as possible. I specifically focus on the hotel and office market.
Before Colliers I worked as a researcher at WoningNet, a company known for its web portal which lists properties to rent or for sale in the Netherlands. By serving the major Dutch housing corporations with bringing the limited supply and hefty demand together, there is rich data to analyze. Therefore I learnt a lot about the social housing system in the Netherlands.
