Vastgoedgroep Degroote is a familiar name on the Belgian coast. With more than 40 years’ experience in property development and housing construction, Xavier Degroote and his sons Jan and David start each day with a renewed passion and focus to help their company grow. Together with their large team of motivated employees, they are not only generating an excellent profit, they are also contributing to the quality of life and the authenticity of the built environment along the Belgian coastline.
Since its establishment, Vastgoedgroep Degroote has built more than 600 homes and almost 4,000 apartments. They have a strong focus on architectural quality and make sure their buildings are prepared for both the current and the future needs of the city and its inhabitants. Thanks to their ‘A to Z structure’, whereby the Group owns the property, constructs the building and develops the real estate, they can offer their customers a ‘one stop shop’. The Group is financially sound with a low risk profile, so that the company enjoys the confidence of the major banks. This also translates into added security for both customers and suppliers.
