Pieter van Santvoort

Function:

Director Van Santvoort Makelaars. I also work as a real estate agent & appraiser on a daily basis.

Working at Van Santvoort Makelaars since:

As a second generation I have been working in our company since 2003, of which I am also the owner together with my cousin Dirk since 2006. Previously I worked at Van Santvoort Makelaars: MeeĆ¹s (the current MVGM).

Quote:

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.

What are your tasks at Van Santvoort?

Together with Dirk I am ultimately responsible for Van Santvoort Makelaars.

In my role as a Realtor I am mainly focused on:

New Building Initiation & Investments.

As an appraiser I am mainly focused on valuing commercial real estate.

What are you proud of at Van Santvoort Makelaars?

That we get the best out of an assignment for our clients. Our motto is ‘surprise’. That is why we have laid down four core values that we stand for. These core values can be found in all layers of the organisation and are an important part of measuring individual performance within Van Santvoort real estate agents.

These core values are:

Enterprising, goal-oriented, passionate and reliable.

How does Van Santvoort Makelaars contribute to your personal development?

Besides sharing my knowledge, I like to make a positive contribution to the developments in the market. I see it as my responsibility to regularly bring different parties into contact with each other by organising knowledge events and participating in think tanks. At such events, different parties think constructively about new developments with depth in content. And that’s where I learn from.

What is important in your work at Van Santvoort Makelaars?

The focus on people. Operating in a team is always central. The best solutions come from cooperation with colleagues and clients. Effective cooperation is stimulated both within Van Santvoort Makelaars and with clients, because I am convinced that good cooperation, mutual respect and knowledge sharing can only benefit the end result. I try to be the binding factor in this.

What do you do besides your work?

I like to run through the beautiful forests of Brabant. There I can clear my head again and there is room for new creative ideas.
