Our company story

This month The James Company officially marks five years in business, but as a pioneer in the field of real estate services we have more than 12 years of experience. Read on to find out more about us.


The history of The James Company is to be found on the outskirts of Rotterdam in the Brainpark business district, the home of Verwey Vastgoed’s former head office.

Verwey Vastgoed had the ambition to create greater value in living and working in buildings and became a pioneer in this field.

Butler services

Based somewhat on the American model, extra services were offered in addition to the familiar property management services. These services were provided in two iconic buildings in the city, De Rotterdam and Calypso, with an in-house concierge, services such as a dry-cleaners and carwash, and events organized for the buildings’ users. It was no longer just about ‘bricks and mortar’, but about the people who lived and/or worked there every day.


Then in 2015 +James was born: the result of this integrated approach to property management.

The property service concept of +James was rolled out in dozens of buildings throughout the Netherlands. In order to keep innovating, +James collaborated with inspirational start-ups and invested in a digital community platform.

The James Company BV

A leap in time: in 2019 +James separated from Verwey Vastgoed, which meanwhile had merged with MVGM. The James Company BV was formed and alongside the trusted label +James the services of +Jack and +Moving Help were added.

And now, five years later, we have expanded again. We work for a range of clients, all kinds of buildings and a variety of users. We provide appropriate services for each building, or even for the entire neighbourhood. And why not! Here’s to the next five years.
