About us

Ever since I was a child I had a deep appreciation for what we Dutch call gezelligheid – get used to that word because you’ll hear it a lot in the Netherlands. The best way to translate it is that cozy feeling you get in a welcoming home or with good friends. With Great Expatations I want to make your move to, and your new life in the Netherlands super gezellig. Don’t worry, I’ll teach you how to say it.

Relocating to a new country is always stressful. With Great Expatations, I want to help relieve expats and companies of the stress involved with relocating and integrating to the Amsterdam area by handling everything from organizing all the legal documents, helping you find the right house or office, to arranging your movers, finding a great school and anything else you may need. Nothing is too crazy.

Also I lived abroad for a few years and I experienced first hand how it is as a newbie in a new country with a new language, new culture, different ways and rules. Lucky to have much free time in the beginning and having some friends over there I figured out everything by myself. But as an expat, coming for a new job I can imagine free time and lots of people you know is a luxury you don’t have. When i returned to The Netherlands I got more experience on this subject working at an American company, finding, decorating and opening their Amsterdam office and helping employers from abroad with paperwork and finding them a home.

Over the years I’ve built up a great network and knowledge regarding the ins and outs of relocating to the Netherlands and I’ll personally oversee your move every step of the way. I don’t stop at the practicalities. If you like I will even show you the best cafes, hair stylists, clubs and grocery stores in your new neighborhood and hook you up with fun social networks throughout the area. No one more then me understands how hectic and uncertain this time of your life can be and with my organizational skills, passion and experience I can help make your transition to your new life in the Netherlands great.

See you soon!

Your first friend in the Netherlands.


Let us greatly take care of all your worries.
