Charles Grayson

Owner

I am a native English speaker (from the USA) with more than 27 years’ experience in Real Estate including more than 17 years in The Netherlands. I graduated from Tufts University and lived in Boston, MA, West Hartford, CT and Washington, DC before moving to Amsterdam in 2003. After working for a year at a Dutch real estate agency focused on the Expat market while taking Dutch language classes and Inburgeringscursus, I moved on to Perfect Housing to set-up and create Perfect Real Estate where I was the Director. After more than 3 successful years and many satisfied clients, I decided to start my own agency in the heart of the Jordaan (in the center of Amsterdam) and in early 2008, 27 House Real Estate / 27 Huis Makelaars was born.

When I am not working, I love to play tennis, ski, travel and spend time with my family including 3 children and a dog.

I look forward to helping you buy, sell or rent your apartment and to ‘Helping you make all the right moves!’

RM (Register Makelaar)/teamleader of Buying and Selling

After running my own recruitment agency in Amsterdam/Amstelveen for more than 12 years, I made a very conscious career switch to the real estate business in 2003 following a personal experience.

I met my partner in 2001 and a year after we wanted to buy a house and sell his former home. The real estate agent who was responsible for the sale at that time did not have a plan, did not keep his promises, was difficult to reach; in short I thought I can do it better!

After careful consideration, I eagerly went back to school to receive the best real estate education and to become a certified realtor (and appraiser). I firmly believe that if you do something, you must do it well and carefully. My passion for the profession as a real estate agent has only increased during the education and when my partner decided to hire a new real estate agent. Together with this new enthusiastic agent, I made a marketing plan, promotional text in both Dutch and English and in the end we sold the property within a week! Note that it was a completely different market at the time and not a seller's market.

Since 2005 I have been active as a driven real estate agent. I worked for more than two years at Perfect Real Estate, where I succeeded Charles. I was also an expat for a short period. This was not always a pleasant experience mainly due to the housing situation. That is why I know very well how important it is to live in a pleasant, warm home - Especially if you are far away from home! It also engrained in me the importance of a good housing agent.

Since July 2010 I have been working with the27 House Real Estate team. Dutch is my native language and I am also fluent in English and reasonably good in French.

I would love to help you with buying or selling your property.

I look forward to ‘Helping you make all the right moves!’

Yvonne van Luijk

I have been active in real estate since 2000 and I completed my studies and certification in 2005.

I truly love my job, after all, what can be more fun than to help house hunters find the home of their dreams? I also love when a home owner who wants to sell his/her house, gives me their trust to sell their house for the best price! Both cases are of course a question of trust and confidence, but the best deal is made by the broker who will show a potential buyer how a property has worked for the previous owner and how it will work for them as well... These are among the main reasons I went into real estate.

In addition, I am active with managing Owners Associations (VvEs) throughout Amsterdam. In this way I am uniquely experienced and able to best advise clients about potential risks and issues in this area. In Amsterdam there is much to know about the laws and rights associated with property and I can guide a buyer to the ins and outs as well as tell them about their rights when joining a VvE when purchasing an apartment.

Since March 2012 I have been a proud team member of 27 Huis Real Estate and I look forward to helping you buy, sell or rent your property and to ‘Helping you make all the right moves!’

Roos Pham

Rental Team Leader

My name is Roos Pham, born and raised in The Hague, but originally Vietnamese. I moved to Amsterdam in 2004 to start a degree in International business, for which I also studied in Paris for 6 months at the Pôle Universitaire Léonard de Vinci. Settling in a new country, looking for a home, speaking a different language: It was all part of a fantastic experience. The real estate world has always appealed to me, so I chose to do a Business Development internship at a real estate agency in Amsterdam, where I discovered the ins and outs of this business. After finishing my studies I took a job as a Rental Specialist at Perfect Housing where I gained a lot of experience with great pleasure. I exchanged the field service for the back office and started as a (Senior) Commercial Assistant after I had my 2 children. I took care of all rental documents, administration and was the contact person for tenants and landlords. In this position I learned a lot about tenancy law. I have been working as a Rental Specialist for 27 Huis Real Estate since 2015 and I am happy to represent our enthusiastic rental.

I look forward to ‘Helping you make all the right moves!’

I earned my real estate broker’s certification in 2009 and started working as a real estate agent in het Gooi. I then spent four years as an expat in Paris, and moved to Amsterdam in 2015 where I’ve been working in real estate ever since. My favorite areas include the Jordaan, the Canal belt, Oud-Zuid and the Zuidas. I am a lifelong learner who loves to read, and besides real estate I have a passion for psychology, history and technology.

I look forward to helping you buy, sell or rent your property and to ‘Helping you make all the right moves’!

  Dominique Groothuis

Dominique Groothuis

My name is Dominique and I have been living in beautiful Amsterdam since 2016. I am originally from Ermelo, a little village on the Veluwe. I have always enjoyed living there, but a few years ago I felt like I was ready for a new adventure. I wanted to experience how living in 'the big city' would be. I told myself that I could always go back if I didn’t enjoy it. Now, years later, I still live here with great pleasure.

I have been working in real estate since 2016 and since November 2018 I have been working as a rental specialist at 27 House Real Estate. A perfect job to enjoy the city. Every day I cycle through the nicest neighborhoods, along the most beautiful canals and get the opportunity to help clients rent their dream homes here.

From an early age I have been interested in everything that has to do with real estate. What would that house look like from the inside, what would it cost, could I live there? I love exploring Funda to see what the current listings are, but also to see what has been rented and for what price. I like to be an expert in this market. This way I can provide people with the best advice. I love to discuss the process together. What are we going to do, when, for what price, which contract will we use and of course, when will the key transfer take place? Because that is the moment where we are all working towards, whether it is renting or leasing!

I look forward to helping you rent your apartment and to ‘Helping you make all the right moves’!

Anna de Groot

My name is Anna de Groot and I’ve been living in Amsterdam since 2014. After having lived in different properties throughout the city, I decided to translate my passion for the Amsterdam housing market into a job in real estate. Because of my commercial experience working for companies in different sectors, I was offered a chance to join the team at 27 House Real Estate.

As an office manager, I support our realtors in their day-to-day work and spend most of my time managing our schedule and making sure all parties are well informed and the files are well organized. In the meantime, I am also studying to obtain my KRMT-certification in order to become a realtor myself in the future.In my free time I enjoy photography and travelling the world. Seeing as many beautiful places in the world always inspires me, but also reminds me of how nice it is to live in Amsterdam!

Ik sta dus graag voor u klaar ‘helping you make all the right moves’!

Gianni Brandsen

Gianni Brandsen

My name is Gianni, born in Amsterdam and I grew up in nearby Aalsmeer. From the age of 19, I’ve resided in Amsterdam, the city that never bores and where I feel at home. I have lived in Amsterdam’s Oud-West neighborhood for several years now, where I love to walk and enjoy the hustle and bustle around me. The hotspots of Oud-West for me are Ikaria, de Karavaan, Café Helmers and Meatless District. At Ikaria I get a cup of coffee every morning, a perfect start to the day!

One of the things that makes working as a real estate agent so enjoyable is the social contact with people and the diversity that comes with it. One day you're busy with colleagues at the office and the next day you're exploring the city by bike with your clients. Personal guidance is a must for me in this profession. Selling and/or buying a home is a process where the lines of communication must be short, you have to get to know your clients personally so that you can map out their wishes and needs as clearly as possible. With our organized and experienced team of financial advisors, structural engineers and notaries, we ensure that your purchase goes as efficiently and smoothly as possible. With our market knowledge and extensive network, my team and I ensure that no opportunity will pass you by!

I look forward to helping you buy, sell or rent your property and to ‘Helping you make all the right moves!’
