Someone helps you to see all possibilities?

I reached out for help to Marijke in order to understand what could be the possibilities of loans, help and subsidies to renew my windows.
Her input has been extremely helpful in a very short time and helped me make the right decisions.

I’ll certainly reach out again if I need it, and I warmly recommend her help to my friends. Thank you again!


About me

As a child, I always had some kind of craft project on the go. Whatever the materials involved – wood, paper, paints – being creative made me happy. From age 16, I trained as a decoration and restoration painter.

Then, eager to learn more, I studied to become a teacher, specializing in building maintenance, management and completion.

It was during this period that I first came into contact with internationals. Thanks to them, my world grew and expanded. 

I took a job with a building company. As a construction planner, my day-to-day duties included preparing quotations, making cost calculations, planning projects and purchasing materials and labour. 

This knowledge, combined with a natural curiosity and interest in people, makes Settle Down Support. My aim is that everyone’s house will be home. I want to help you feel welcome and feel at home in this country and in your house. So you have more energy for things that matters to you.
