Testimonials

Professional site - Second Home exhibitions Europe

“The Second Home Exhibition is a great opportunity for us to get in touch with our new and existing customers. To us, it’s an excellent way of marketing, socializing and reaching our target audience. Mediterraan Wonen would like to thank the organization for setting up the Second Home Beurs and creating the opportunities. Although the supply of houses around Costa Blanca is enormous, we see sufficient visitors that are interested in this specific area. Most of all, we feel the personal contact is crucial. It works both for the visitors, who want more information than just leaflets, and for our services. This year we have been able to arrange some settlements with direct results. Moreover, we have made a contract with a new organisation, that will result in a broader portfolio of houses and residences. The effort is definitely worth it. See you next time!”

Ron Groot, Director Mediterraan Wonen - Spain

”I would never hesitate to say, that Second Home Expo is THE LEADING REAL ESTATE ORGANISER IN EUROPE. Their clever marketing actions attract sophisticated buyers, the ”look and feel” of the exhibitions is definitely an elite one. And of course – the Second Home Team, is simply the dream team of the international real estate industry!”

Jurga Skrabulyte, Managing Director Domus Alliance

We, the Casalasdunas team, are very happy with the amount and quality of the visitors that came to our stand. We have been able to make concrete appointments for VIEWINGS and as a consequence the first clients have already bought. We would like to thank the organisers sincerely for the outstanding service and the beautiful pictures they have made during the exhibition. We hope to see you all next time.
The Casalasdunas team.

”Place to be with your real estate company. For us as mesora Homes and Travels and Ege Cinar Group it were perfect days to promot our company and make a contact with a lot of People in Holland and Germany. Next time we will be there”.

”For years now, Second Home International has been uniting buyers and sellers who wish to explore what is beyond the borders of this chilly country of ours. The concept has turned into a huge success and everyone who wishes to enjoy a piece of paradise abroad comes to the fair with plenty of enthusiasm, either in the spring or in the autumn, in the Dutch city of Utrecht. The fair is even so successful that it is no longer organised in Utrecht only, but also in our neighbouring countries Germany and Belgium in order to be able to comply with the constantly increasing demand”.

Theodora Uniken Venema, Downtown Brokers LLC - U.S.A.

”The Second Home exhibition is a perfect opportunity to meet our existing and new customers. In a personal conversation we get the chance to know people better and to help them to find the house of their dreams in one of the most interesting areas of France!”

Marieke Bökkerink, Commercial employee B&D France

”Tijdens de voorjaarseditie 2014 van de Second Home International in de Jaarbeurs Utrecht vond de lancering van ons nieuwe project Villas Winterberg plaats. Het project bestaat uit 24 luxe design villa’s en appartementen (ski in – ski out) in het wintersportdorp Neuastenberg (Winterberg, Duitsland). De belangstelling voor het project was tijdens deze beurs enorm. De combinatie van de moderne architectuur en de aantrekkelijke locatie trokken de aandacht van de bezoekers. Het aantal afspraken op locatie wat tijdens de beurs werd gemaakt was boven verwachting. Ook de najaarseditie van de Second Home beurs was een succes, wederom werd het project goed ontvangen en het feit dat het project al voor de helft verkocht was tijdens deze beurseditie, gaf de potentiële kopers vertrouwen. Toen Tom van den Brink van Fairs Consult ons benaderde voor de voorjaarseditie van 2015, hebben wij door tekort aan verkoopaanbod met dit project niet meer aan de beurs kunnen deelnemen, een soort: ‘Wegens succes gesloten’. Voor ons waren/zijn de Second Home beurzen zeker van toegevoegde waarde, wij hebben meer dan de helft van dit project verkocht middels dit kanaal. In de 15 jaar dat wij deelnemen hebben wij in goede en in slechte tijden deze beurzen ervaren als een goed contact moment tussen aanbieder en klant”.

Josephine Antonissen, Projects & Marketing Villas Winterberg

“For the past 6 years our business has enjoyed tremendous success due to our ever improving customer service and the quality of the investment we offer to our clients. But here is the key, we would have never enjoyed this success without the service Second Home International provides. It doesn’t matter how good your service or product is if no one knows or hears about it. Second Home International brings your service and product to the market place like no other service. We will be forever grateful to Henkjan Prins and An van Houte for their kind and professional service and would recommend Second Home International to anyone wishing to break into the international real estate market. Thanks again, see you at the next one”.

An-Sofie De Vos, Director Immo Portugal

“Since the early start of this organization we’re displaying with a booth on each edition of the Second Home Exhibition. Thanks to the professionalism and dynamism of the staff , we’re still there.

Jacques Westen, Director Pyramid Immo - France

Bastiaan Taselaar, Director Sauerland Makelaar - Germany - Austria

“We have been attending Second Home twice a year for over 10 years now and each time we think: shall we skip this time? But each time we decide to take a stand again and are happy about the results. Our agency is located in Italy so for us the Second Home is an excellent occasion to personally meet our clients and build up a positive and trustful relationship with them, which is hard if you comunicate by email and internet only. The personal treatment given by Henk Jan and his team is very important to us and they are always willing to help us out with practical things, beyond the official schemes. I look forward to the autumn edition!”.

Dorrie Seijffert , Director Le Case Di Dorrie - Italy

Every time we meet people who appreciate it very much to work with an real-estate agent with offices on location to find their second home, who knows all about the area and French rules”.

“Our first exhibition at Second Home International was an enormous success. Both in the joy and enthusiasm we have had during this exhibition but also in the number of enquiries we have received. Every day we are still following up on them and meet potential buyers in Spain to accompany them in their search for a new house in Spain. We are thankful for the well-organized exhibition, clear communication and open atmosphere with the team of Second Home International. We most certainly will attend future exhibitions.”

Jolanda van Dam, Director Van Dam Estates - Spain

“Second Home International is really an opening for many questions that people have in connection with the purchase of a second home. It is a exhibition where misunderstandings helped out of the way and ideas evolve. We can truly say that we get very interested customers on the floor that each ensure that this exhibition is worth to be!”

Vokan Pekgeldi, Marketing & Sales Mecitoglu Homes - Turkey

“We exhibit at Second Home International with Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol, Spain. These expos are the perfect time for us to reach our target audience. The Second Home International exhibition is well organized and is valuable for acquiring new leads”.

Hans van der Meer, Director Spanje Specials

“Since 2012 Dream Properties International (Spaanse Droomhuizen) is attending Second Home Exhibitions in the Netherlands and Belgium. Very well organized by Henkjan´s team: enthusiastic and open for improvements in a practical and marketing/sales way as well. Internet is nowadays a very important lead generator for us but there will be always a group of potential buyers who appreciate to have personal face-to-face contact on their home ground. Second Home International makes this happen. Pleasant and professional are the key words for participants ánd visitors”.

Erwin Hartgring, Director Spaanse Droomhuizen - Spain

“Inmo España has participated to more than 10 Second Home International Fairs. The professional Second Home Fair organisation together with our large choice of properties on the Costa Blanca , Costa del Sol and Tenerife and our 15 years’ experience have offered to Spanish property buyers an unique opportunity to buy “top class” Spanish property via a reliable and officially registered Belgian Real Estate Agency. We remain grateful to Henkjan Prins and An Van Houte for their kind and professional service. Thanks again and see you at the next Fair!”

Jean-Pierre Aernaudts, Inmo Espana - Spain

“Our contact with the Second Home exhibitions in Ghent (Belgium) and Utrecht (The Netherlands) brought value to our new project in Castellane situated in France.

Hans Homma, Chalets Castellane France

“Thanks to a motivated and positive attitude of the management, Vakantie Makelaar started years ago to be present on the Second Home International. The Second Home International contributes to our brand awareness and revenue goals. An excellent fair to get in touch with both individuals and private investors”.

Frank de Groot, Director Vakantie Makelaar - Netherlands, Belgium, Germany & Austria

“For the last 10 years Puurspanje attended more then 25 Second Home Exhibitions in the Netherlands and Belgium. Even in the digital era the exhibitions are one of the main lead generators for our company. Not only potential buyers appreciate to have personal face-to face contact on their home ground but also we, as a company, see it as a advantage to be able to have a personal contact with our customers. Great amounts of visitors are guaranteed by their marketing campaigns and the team makes sure that there is nothing to worry about during the three days that you are promoting your products”.

Coert Peeters, Director Puurspanje

”Second Home Expo was a successful event that got us some good, high quality leads.
I would say that for developers/agents that sell good, honest projects and need an influx of serious clients with more than average budget, Second Home Expo is a must!”

Milen Mikov , Piringolf – Bulgaria

”Second Home Expo is an excellent fair to meet with our current home owners (clients) as well as informing prospective second home owners how they can rent out their second home, through our online platform itself. So an excellent place to combine our online presence with meeting our landlords face-to-face and to inform them about new features and give them tips on their own ads on Micazu.”

Jens van den Broek, General manager Micazu
