April 2010

On April 6th of 2010 Marcel de Groot registered Nedstone with the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam, giving birth to a new way of office space mediation. Nedstone solely concerns its self with generating a demand for office spaces – leaving property owners and business centers in charge of their own viewings, rent proposals, negotiations and letting agreement contracts.

May 2010

By this time Nedstone has five significant real estate clients:

  • Regus
  • Merin (previously Uni-Invest)
  • Hanzevast
  • Fortress
  • Eurocommerce (no longer in existence)

Nedstone completes its first rental mediation transaction with Arnhem based client, Wazzup Inc. Wazzup Inc rents 800m2 meter of office space from Eurocommerce at 77 Eusebiussingel in Arnhem.

February 2011

Nedstone moves to a new office at 39 Johan van Hasseltweg, Amsterdam. The office boasts a 25m2 conference room and a further 25m2 office space with the capacity for three employees. Nedstone accepts its first intern, providing support where needed. Tasks include uploading properties to the website and taking calls with existing and potential new clients.

October 2011

December 2011

Nedstone took over the Dutch Flexas Limited branch. This is still considered a big step, as Flexas is a larger web site with more real estate suppliers and more traffic than Nedstone. Taking over Flexas.nl opened the doors to providers of flexibel office space through the whole of the Netherlands. Nedstone still focusses primarily on traditional offices space starting at 250m2.

January 2014

In order to accommodate for the need for more employees, Nedstone hired and extra office space at Opzeezand, resulting in the capacity for twelve employees. To ensure the new office would be ready for the new year all building work was done between Christmas and New Years Eve.
