The Beekhuizen family is the most striking real estate agency in the Betuwe. This real estate family has its own dating app for homes called Settle, delivers its own magazine in the region full of tips about the housing market and creates its own family game: Monopoly De Betuwe.
The Beekhuizen family is headed by real estate appraisers Jeroen and Henriëtte van Vessem, who took over the company from their late mother Heleen Beekhuizen. Cousin Jochem Beekhuizen also works as a real estate appraiser and Henriëtte's husband Ap van Dolderen takes care of the new construction projects. From the central office, Celine Pries and Janine Vermeer ensure that everything runs smoothly. Photographer Melissa Ursinus provides the images. Real estate advisor Mâcé Dolron likes to put all the finishing touches. The youngest member of the family is Twan van Mourik: he works as a trainee broker. Some members are literally family, others figuratively - but cannot be ignored by the Beekhuizen family.
Founder Heleen has provided the solid foundation for this office, which started in 1993. She taught the real estate trade to Jeroen and Henriëtte. Heleen knew what she wanted and so the company grew in the early years into the largest real estate agency in the Betuwe - which it still is today. Heleen died after a sick bed. Even when she was ill, she continued to inspire. She was always of a positive approach, according to her nothing was impossible.
The Beekhuizen Makelaardij family was able to flourish into a successful company thanks to the support of Helen's husband Frans van Vessem. Frans lives with his dog Max next to the office, in the building where it all started. Henriëtte and Ap have two daughters: Iris (13) and Roos (11) are perhaps the real estate agents of the future. Labrador Saar completes the team as an office dog.
