Having first worked as a Civil Engineer for the Rotterdam council for two and a half years, I came to La Palma with my Canarian wife. I’ve been working and living here for nine years now, and have never looked back.
After a transitional period working in tourism, I secured a position at a local engineering agency called Agrovial Consultores, during which six-year period I gained vast experience in Canarian engineering, laws and regulations.
This experience has brought me into contact with a vast array of local public bodies, which prove useful to this day, when it comes my everyday activities as a self-employed Civil Engineering consultant.
Apart from my interest in Real Estate, I also work as the La Palma agent for topographic equipment from Leica, part of Geoavance, which has its headquarters in Seville.
My technical and practical experience in dealing with the Canarian authorities lead to Roger Ligter asking me to join him in La Palma Vacant to improve and fine-tune the service to our clients.
As we are fluent in four languages (Spanish, English, German, and Dutch) we can assist the majority of our customers in their own language, plus help them with all official dealings here on La Palma.
