Leif Petersen is the founder of Metropool Makelaars. He has been working in the financial and services sector since 2006. In 2013, he made the switch to one of the largest real estate agencies in Amsterdam, where he worked as a registered real estate agent for the purchase and sale of homes, appraiser and office manager.
The reason for setting up Metropool Makelaars is that Leif has experienced in practice that selling homes well is specialist work and almost never receives the right attention. A real estate agent also provides other services in addition to the sale of homes. For example, a sales broker is often also a purchase broker, appraiser, rental broker and new-build broker.
