Wouter van Bakkum

Haarlem, where every neighborhood has a unique character and every street tells a new story. Meet Wouter, a real estate agent with a passion for the history of his city and sustainability. He is ready to assist you in buying or selling your house.


“I have a good understanding of sustainability and know methods to make homes greener and more energy-efficient. Whether it’s about installing solar panels, improving insulation, or adopting other technologies, I can provide you with tips on how to approach this.

“I believe it’s essential to recognize your lifestyle. For those who work in Amsterdam, the Amsterdamsewijk (as the name suggests) is very convenient due to its proximity to the highway.”

“But personally, Haarlem-Noord is a favorite of mine. The majority of the neighborhood consists of houses from the 1930s. In the Planetenwijk, residents often organize ‘green streets.’ A green street is closed to traffic for a certain period, like three weeks, allowing children to freely play on the street.”

“Or take for instance, the Heussenstraat. Here, houses are arranged in a semicircle around a green area with water. From each house, you have a view of the mill on the opposite side.”

In a green street,
children can play freely.

“Leef Makelaars stands out with its young, enthusiastic approach. As a team, we understand the needs of the new generation of homebuyers, who increasingly value sustainability and eco-friendliness.”

“Whether you want to make an existing home more sustainable or are looking for a newly built home with an A+ energy label, me and my colleagues are here to assist you in making an informed choice.”
