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.
By this time Nedstone has five significant real estate clients:
- Merin (previously Uni-Invest)
- 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.
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.
Nedstone broke the 2.000m2 mark for the first time, successfully mediating a rental agreement between Ballorig and Merin for a property at 26 Hazenkamp in Arnhem – previously a Heineken distribution center.

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.
