Luxury lifestyle and VIP service Concierge Amsterdam launched a new label this week: Dutch Uncle. This service to unburden, is specialized in Lifestyle Services for diplomats and Home Management Services and focuses on wealthy households and foreigners in the Netherlands.
In global cities such as New York, London, Paris, The Hague busy business people and internationals make eager use of home managers and personal concierges when moving or while traveling. This fact is fairly new in the Netherlands, even though there is a market for it.
Dutch Uncle provides a soft landing in the Netherlands “We are responding to this,” says Stephanie Broeke, co-founder of Dutch Uncle. “Many diplomats who settle here can feel lost. The first step, such as first accommodation or a hotel reservation is often arranged by the embassy. But then it really starts. What are the best places to decorate your home? What insurance is needed, what is the best school for your children and how do you arrange other practical matters such as the dentist? Where can you find a nanny, a personal trainer or a private driver? but often they have no idea where to start and start a search on the internet, whereby trial and errors.
This detour is no longer necessary with Dutch Uncle. Thanks to our powerful network and years of experience in providing services for VIPS, we have the direct entrances and with our Expat Lifestyle Services we ensure a soft landing so that this target group feels at home faster and saves a lot of time.”
Home Management Services takes care of practical matters in and around the house. In addition, Dutch Uncle also provides clients with personal services in a higher segment. “Think of industrialists, dignitaries and people working in the high-end entertainment industry,” Broeke continues. “There is often no shortage of budget, but there is a shortage of time – that has become a luxury good. With our Home Management Services we ensure that practical matters are taken care of. This can range from furnishing a pied-à-terre to arranging the post mail and cleaning when someone is traveling.”
Bojana Duovski, co-owner of Dutch Uncle and founder of Concierge Amsterdam adds: “Although Concierge Amsterdam mainly focuses on diplomats and international VIPS who stay here for a short time, we increasingly received requests for structural support in the field of home management and concierge services.”
