The SOS Estate Agency owes its existence to Sarah Hanafy as its founder. She works in close collaboration with Bo Hanafy, who in addition to being her son has made himself indispensable as a highly esteemed colleague. Between them Sarah and Bo tend to a wide range of duties including property purchases and sales, construction management, new-build projects, energy labels, structural surveys and commonhold subdivisions and reversals. The SOS Estate Agency is a specialist – among other things – in the area of (nationally) listed buildings.

Conny Hulsman runs the SOS Estate Agency’s commercial property operations. Although her primary duties are to do with rental operations (to rent and to let) and appraisals, she will as happily assist you in the purchase or sale of a property or help you sort out your rental score issues.

Small yet perfectly formed, the SOS Estate Agency team prides itself on its commitment and sincerity. The team members works tirelessly with creativity and drive to secure the best possible results for their clients, whom they unfailingly provide with straightforward advice and to whose best interest they are genuinely committed.

An unsaleable property? Not if we have anything to say about it! No matter how challenging the proposition, you can count on the SOS Estate Agency to come up with a solution. Our creativity has helped us complete many a transaction to acclaim even in times of economic hardship. Whether a property is a “des res” or more of an acquired taste, the SOS Estate Agency will bring the transaction to a successful conclusion!

Three property experts, in short, whose unique and personable dispositions ensure that they will wholeheartedly cater to your property requirements without relegating the personal touch to playing second fiddle. The customer truly is always right as far as we’re concerned!

The latest “feather in our cap” has been the recent admission of the SOS Estate Agency to the select group of 15 exclusively accredited Amsterdam-based estate agencies.
