We will find property matches then schedule and accompany you to viewings in person or by video if you’re unable to attend.

We will negotiate your offer, review the rental contract and record your new home’s condition at check in. 

Soft landing

Expect smooth transitioning to your new home with utilities such as energy and internet set up before you move in.

We can also get you connected with local registration, banking, tax advisors and insurance.


Rental smarts

Maybe something is not working or needs repaired. Who is responsible?

No matter what the question, we will help when you need during the rental.



“Considering the Dutch housing market, we expected our search to take forever. This was not the case when SPR found our new home within 1 week. Cannot thank you enough!”
