The Experts

Expat Oriented Organisation Certification

HTBAH believe that buying a property in the Netherlands as an expat is not a circus nor an improv comedy act. Buying a home is the most serious financial decision that people make in their lives. It’s momentous and daunting in one’s own country, but when living and working as an expat in the Netherlands, it’s even more important to get the right advice to be able to make the right investment.

The EOO certification is about ensuring that expats are working with organisations who are credible, provide outstanding services and understand the needs of expats.

In order to ensure this organisation seeking to be certified need to meet the following criteria.
