Zeedijk, the Wandeldijk and Albert Beach. Knokke also offers a wide range of amazing restaurants and relaxing night/beach life. If you ask me, there is no better region to live in Belgium.”
Stable market During the past ten years, IMMO BROWN’s clientele has become increasingly international. “About 40 per cent of our clients come from neighbouring countries like the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg.” That increase has led Stefaan and Patricia Geerebaert to open a second office in Luxembourg. “Our new office, IMMO BROWN LUXEMBOURG, which is co-led by Patricia and Stefaan Geerebaert together with Frederick Gordts-Vanthournout, is located at 43, Route d’Arlon in Strassen, to accommodate clients in Luxembourg and Germany. They are mostly looking for properties to buy. “At our office in Luxembourg we present Luxembourg properties, but also Knokke properties, with the same enthusiasm and service as we do here in Knokke.” Compared to the housing market in other countries, the Belgian housing market is much more stable. “Over recent years we have seen prices rising, but not as drastically or intensely as in the Netherlands. In Belgium they went up more steadily. So the risk of a drop in property value is much lower than with our neighbours in the north, mostly because the purchase of properties in Knokke is independent of any economic roller coaster but merely induced by an ongoing desire to purchase beautiful properties in order to experience a continuous quality of life.”
Everything is taken care of The team at IMMO BROWN make sure that whenever a client enlists them to buy a house or villa, everything is taken care of. “We pilot your project through the complex real estate rules and legal frameworks.” IMMO BROWN acquires all the necessary documents and reports, from building inspections and town planning information to the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), electric testing, soil certificates (OVAM) and inspection of fuel oil tanks, if applicable. “Once everything is in place, we make up the contracts, so that you can go to the
notary to sign them, knowing everything is in order,” elaborates Geerebaert. Obviously Patricia and Stefaan Geerebaert are also there if you are looking to sell a property. “We will make sure that whenever someone is interested in buying your house, we check everything before going into the negotiations. As an owner, you entrust us with your property and hence an important part of your life. We will not break that trust, and help make the buying or selling of a property as smooth as possible.” Web: www.immobrownknokke.be 80 Sparrendreef Knokke-Zoute (B)
The quality of living in Knokke (Zoute) is tremendous and has no comparison in the Benelux. That is one of many reasons why the team at IMMO BROWN love what they do, assisting clients with professionalism and knowledge. “We know what this region has to offer and we want to make sure that our clients will experience that, whilst living in a luxurious house, villa, or apartment that embodies everything Knokke stands for: enjoying life to the fullest.” Web: www.immobrown.lu 43 Route d’Arlon Strassen (Lux)
