Piet de Dreu joined WEICHERT, REALTORS® — New Colony with a desire to take the pressure and the worry out of buying or selling a home. He says that every client should have a stress-free, successful transaction. His goal is to make this happen with his patience, creativity and optimism.
“Once I met the team at New Colony, the choice to join their organization was easy,” Piet says. “The agents are top-notch and instill confidence that real estate transactions are handled with the care they deserve. Plus, Weichert’s training is the best in the business.”
Piet grew up in both the Netherlands (near Middelburg, the provincial capital of Zeeland) and in Canada (near the city of London in the province of Ontario). He earned a bachelor of science degree in biochemistry from the University of Waterloo, Canada, and then moved to the United States to work at Parke-Davis in Ann Arbor, Michigan as a protein biochemist, which later became Pfizer. Piet now lives in Hanover, Md., working as a Realtor® and spending time as a Master Gardener and recreational cyclist. On easy days, he may be found riding his motorcycle instead of his bicycle.
Piet supports Doctors Without Borders, Feeding America, World Renew, the Nature Conservancy, the Sierra Club, Amnesty International and Oxfam. With his love for gardening, he has spearheaded landscaping improvements for several Homeowners’ Associations and aiding those less able in maintaining their yards. He also serves as treasurer of his local church.
