Welcome, nice to virtually meet you! I am Marc Hennes.
I’m originally from The Netherlands, commonly known as Holland, and I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL USA. Before becoming a real estate agent, I was a navigation officer on the largest cruise ships in the world, and a helicopter pilot.
I thought it was appropriate to name myself “The Helicopter House Hunter”, because of my passion for aviation, my love for flying helicopters, and treating my real estate clients with a complimentary Helicopter House Hunting™ experience. “Selling Real Estate on the Fly” is what I do. I set the standard high, and I want my clients to have the best real estate experience possible. I can make this happen for you whether you are selling your current home, and/or searching for your new dream home in areas in and around the Fort Lauderdale and Miami area. Even when you are moving / relocating to or from anywhere else in the United States, or Internationally, with my extensive local and International network I can help you with your real estate needs worldwide. Let me help connect you with a top real estate agent, where ever you want to move to.
With my extensive digital marketing background, I am able to reach tens of thousands of people in an instant, and can sell your home quickly and for the highest price possible. I also attended the Program on Negotiation by Harvard Law School, and learned from author Roger Dawson (The Secrets of Power Negotiating) to negotiate the best possible price for my clients. Now it’s your turn to Experience Helicopter House Hunting™ and become one of my Privileged Nine™ clients.

Random Fun Facts
If I’m not selling real estate, you can either find me flying in the air, at an airport, somewhere on the water windsurfing or sailing, in front of a TV watching Formula 1, or I’m enjoying myself listening to Dutch DJ’s.
I’m proud to be Dutch, and I’m proud of my “little” country named The Netherlands (Holland) that also has the most and the best DJ’s in the world. Electronic Dance Music (EDM) is my favorite and I want to be the go to real estate agent for DJ’s.
My first “real job” was being a Navigation Officer on a ferry between Belgium and Sweden.
When I was 18 years old I went on my first international flight (12.5 hours), on a Boeing 747 operated by Singapore Airlines from Amsterdam to Singapore, to join the largest container ship in the world, going back to Europe via the Suez Canal.
I traveled around the globe for 12 years on the largest cargo and cruise ships in the world.
I lived in Toronto Canada for flight training, and now I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
