ABOUT US

Vandermolen Real Estate is a boutique residential land and Investment agency with the independence, experience and drive to do things differently.

We are about honesty, work ethic, relationships and knowing whether we are the right agent for the job in order to serve our clients best interests.

Our focus is on disposing of land & buildings, with and without planning permission and residential investment opportunities.

We blend old-fashioned customer service and a 60-year track record with a modern approach to the market, and an unwavering commitment to go above and beyond for our clients.

So, rather than hide behind spin and jargon, we challenge industry convention to fight our clients’ corner, partnering with them every step of the way. Which is why we’re known as the no-nonsense agency that simply tells it like it is and always gets the job done.
