Introduce yourself! Who are you, what industry do you work in and how did you get involved with HTBAH?

Hi! My name is Sascha Versloot and I have been working at PEARLCARD for over 3 years. PEARLCARD is a service company with 12 services including the Lifestyle, Concierge, Travel, Winecircle, and Healthcare service. Through the card, which gives our affiliated members access to exclusive services and privileges, PEARLCARD offers its packages and services via the website and online newsletters. PEARLCARD helps you achieve your wishes, dreams, and goals when making the move to The Netherlands. In our brochure, you will find some highlights of the PEARLCARD services. However, the overview of our services is never limited, the possibilities are endless! Each member benefits from unique discounts with our partners, but above all from fast, careful and reliable service that is tailored to their personal needs.

How To Buy A House (HTBAH) came our way because PEARLCARD started to focus on the expat market. HTBAH is the perfect organization to help expats from the very first moment and PEARLCARD complements that, ensuring our client’s transition is as smooth as possible.

What are the main benefits of acquiring a Pearlcard for an expat?

Your membership includes a special Welcome Package

What’s included? Connecting gas, water, and light, Connecting the internet and television,  discount on day-trips and dinners, Cell phone subscription setup, advice parking permit & the first cleaning!


Give us an example of a time you successfully helped a client? What happened? What did you learn from it?

During these unprecedented times, Healthcare is very important. Due to the fact that “regular care” is now often postponed, if our client needs swift healthcare, PEARLCARD can help. For example, this week we helped a client who had suffered a herniated disc due to working from home and she was only able to go for a consultation in 4 weeks and for an MRI 2 weeks later. PEARLCARD arranged for her that one day later she could have her MRI done and she could go for a consultation!

What are some do’s and dont’s for expat clients that you would/wouldn’t recommend in relation to your industry?

The people behind PEARLCARD are driven, dedicated, and fast in organizing and delivering a wide range of possibilities. Therefore we do not sell a “no” and go to great lengths to process the request as completely as possible. If there is anything on your mind that you are feeling apprehensive about, contact us and we can advise on the best step to take.

What are the benefits of working with you as opposed to another vendor in your industry?

PEARLCARD has no competition. Because we have our Healthcare service we are unique in the market.

If you were to describe HTBAH in 3 words, what would they be?

Friendly, specialized, personal service!
