Marieke lives in beautiful Weesp together with her husband. Since 1991 she works in the brokerage industry. She started working in mortgages, but soon started working as a sworn broker & appraiser in Arnhem, a city near her hometown of Zutphen.
From the brokerage Marieke made a trip into styling and interior. As an entrepreneur, she ran several interior stores throughout the country. Her last adventure was a 7,000 m2 shop-in-shop for everything in terms of living in the Villa Arena in Amsterdam.
Since 2013, she has returned to her first passion: brokering. Initially employed by a brokerage firm specializing in expats. Starting from now she starts the new real estate agency Lammers + Dijkstra.
