Amsterdam estate agents are working hard to convince international buyers to invest in homes in the Dutch capital now that the house prices in London are no longer guaranteed, estate agent Leslie de Ruiter said to broadcaster BNR.

"That they no longer want to invest in London, the Brexit did for us. My job is to make sure that they are not going to move to Munich, Berlin or Paris, but to Amsterdam or another place in the Randstad", De Ruiter of Christie's Real Estate said to the broadcaster. "For now, the increase in foreign buyers is not much. But these are developments that can not be stopped."

The Amsterdam agent is emphasizing an attractive price level and an authentic city to potential customers. "People have to feel welcome here. It is an international community", De Rutier said. She is convinced that more and more Russian, Chinese and Arabic conversations will be heard on the Amsterdam streets in the near future. "Take it from me: no one needs to be afraid of it. Typically, they're nice people."
