Boutique property development & management in the Rotterdam area

About us

De Zalm Property is our boutique property development and management company focused on the Rotterdam area. We buy, develop and maintain properties in good locations, in neighborhoods that we love and live in ourselves. Our properties are rented to like-minded people, whom we feel will appreciate what we have set out to achieve.

De Zalm Property is owned by Edzko and Ellen Smid. We are actively involved ourselves, from apprising and selecting potential projects up to and including the management of properties after they have been rented by our clients.
