Our history

The foundation of Young Real Estate Investments was laid in 2011. Since then, a great deal of knowledge and experience has been gained in all facets of the real estate sector: investing, developing, renting and managing. Below you will find an overview of milestones in our history.

Founding

2011

Founded by Wim de Jong (1982), the company initially focused on purchasing small-scale housing projects in The Hague for renovation and long-term investment.
