I am Leif Petersen and have over 13 years of experience in the Amsterdam real estate industry. After a career at a commercial bank, I transitioned to the real estate profession. One of the reasons for this was my desire to make a greater impact on people’s lives. I had the opportunity to work for approximately 10 years at one of the largest real estate agencies in Amsterdam, learning the ins and outs of the trade. While the real estate profession is fantastic, it is also a world that clings to old habits and customs. In 2021, I co-founded Metropool Makelaars with a group of partners, and I provide daily leadership to a team of professional real estate experts.
At Metropool Makelaars, we have declared "selling homes" as our specialty. In fact, Metropool Makelaars is a pure Sales Agent. In other words, 100% of our business operations revolve around selling homes. By focusing on sales and considering the client’s preferences, we can achieve the best selling price, all for a transparent fee. "I am only satisfied when we have secured the best offer for a property." Additionally, I am also actively involved as a registered broker. The most enjoyable aspect of my job is the client interaction. People can be very different, but there is always some common ground. Once you find that common ground, you can do business. People do business with people!
Lastly, besides the wonderful real estate profession, I enjoy spending time with my children, family, and friends. During the weekends, we often take a stroll in Artis, on the Hilversumse Heide, or visit an amusement park. In the summer, you can often find me on the tennis court or at a lovely terrace in Amsterdam!

I am Mascha Langelaan and have been working in the Amsterdam real estate industry since 1996. Growing up in Amsterdam Zuid as the daughter of an architect and granddaughter of an interior designer, it‘s safe to say the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. My career began with booking rentals on cards and has since evolved into the sales side of real estate. I have experienced all aspects of real estate from the office to fieldwork, from purchases to sales.
The most enjoyable aspect of real estate? My passion for houses and helping people, offering assistance, easing their worries, and personal interaction. Selling your home can be overwhelming, and we are here to guide you in simple terms, taking small steps in the process to make it manageable for you. That‘s my mission – with genuine interest in you and your property. I’m here to assist you as I would like to be assisted myself. A satisfied customer and a good outcome genuinely make me happy. As an ARMT realtor at Metropool Makelaars, along with my colleagues, I am the beating heart in the office and the go-to person in the field. Together with my colleagues, we strive to roll out the red carpet for you and support you comprehensively, answering your questions throughout the sales process. Every day is a learning experience, and no day is the same.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my husband, two daughters, and our miniature dachshund, Fien, who also serves as our office dog. We love taking walks in the Amsterdamse Bos. Additionally, I enjoy shopping, going to the theater, reading home magazines, and seeking home inspiration.
