Bart ter Haar (1973)
Bart has been working in real estate since 1995. Starting at C. Hoen DZN CV Makelaars, he learned the tricks of the trade from Jan Wieger van der Linden. In 2001 Bart made his boyhood dream a reality by opening his own real estate agency, Ter Haar Makelaars. In 2013 Bart fused with Merel ter Heyden and Merel & Ter Haar Makelaars became a reality. Bart explains: “Merel and I complement each other perfectly. We both bring a lot of knowledge and experience to the table, but still learn from each other every day. In our agency we deem a personal approach and high quality service crucial and we differentiate ourselves with an innovative, creative approach. We specialize in Amsterdam and its surroundings because this is where our network and expertise lies.”
Merel van der Weyden (1978)
Merel started her career in real estate in 2002. After an internship at Van Overbeek Makelaars she remained working there as a Candidate broker. In 2004 she was sworn in as Broker/valuator and she became branch manager of an office of Van Overbeek.
In January 2007 she started Merel Makelaardij BV and six years later she fused with Ter Haar Makelaars. She explains: “I missed having a partner beside me for consultation, new ideas and motivation. Bart and I have known each other for 10 years and came up with the idea to fuse our agencies. We both have a large network in Amsterdam. We really complement each other: he is the creative one, the innovator, I help shape his ideas and worry about the money. We work together perfectly this way.”
