What is your dream project?
My dream project to build new houses as I did with my own home. My passion lies in creating harmonious concepts for living. My talent lies in understanding how people choose to live and applying their concepts of designing spaces. Of course, my values as a native Dutchman are in delivering projects that are on time and budget. Functionality and efficiency are in my blood!
How do clients find you?
Many of my clients are repeat clients, and the majority of them are international. I think for them, I represent someone who feels like them but has the experience of living in the south of France for 15 years and understands how things work down here. My company is highly present in all aspects of digital marketing, and since I am a loving social man at heart, I have a large network of friends and business partners both here in France and back home in the Netherlands.
How important is social media, or is it more word of mouth?
Both. Word of mouth will always the best form of marketing, but as we are all connected on social media today, we find that we can easily share our ideas and projects with our clients and prospective clients through these platforms. Inspiration is a good thing!
What is your favorite house?
My home, Villa Zantos is my favorite because it represents my personality. I am a social person. I like to entertain. I want to be comfortable, and I love to be with my family and friends, and for me, it is my retreat. One of my favorite aspects is when I invite guests to my home for lunch or dinner, and I can see how comfortable they naturally feel and how my personal spaces give them a better understanding of who I am.
