We advise a large number of office and/or business space users (tenants). Such a collaboration may begin with advising them on the current location(s) of the organisation.

As it turns out, many of these organisations have a potential for saving in terms of efficiency, surface area, the price of their premises or sustainability (energy consumption). In addition, your current housing may no longer meet your organisation’s requirements. Buying or leasing another office and/or business premise might be a good solution.

We advise companies such as TrainMore, PVH (Tommy Hilfiger/Calvin Klein), Suitsupply, Denham, Fetim, Scotch & Soda, The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Tony’s Chocolonely, Fysiomed, ClubSportive and Startupbootcamp.


We advise (end) investors with respect to their purchase of commercial real estate. We analyse the object in question and compare parameters such as the lease price and ROI to the market. We negotiate in mutual deliberation with our principals in order to achieve the best possible result for our clients.

Appelhoven has facilitated over EUR 3.5 billion in real estate transactions.


We advise office and/or business real estate tenants in renegotiating their existing lease agreements. We assess the current lease agreement(s), by answering questions such as the following:

  • Is the rent competitive?
  • Does the lease term match the organisation’s business plan?
  • Can more beneficial conditions be negotiated in a new lease agreement?

Sales strategy

A large number of our business partners has entrusted us with the exclusive sale of commercial real estate. We determine the sales strategy in mutual deliberation with the client. In some cases, we need to generate a lot of publicity for the object while in other cases the best strategy is a discrete market approach where we contact potential buyers.

Sale & lease back

We advise companies that are both the owner and user of real estate with respect to their ‘sale & lease back’ process. This involves determining how to best sell the building as well as the appropriate provisions.

We advise in negotiations about the provisions of the lease agreement concluded between the lessor (‘buyer’) and the enterprise (‘seller’).
