We are proud to be part of a dedicated, service-minded, talented and loyal team. We are all very hands-on and take the time to listen to you. In general you will deal with one mortgage advisor, assisted by someone from the administrative department. That way, you will be steered through the whole process by a small team that knows you inside out!

What makes us special
Sure, we are the #1 company financing your home abroad. That must account for something! We’ve helped thousands of international clients over the last decade.
But to be honest, bragging about ourselves makes us uncomfortable.
That’s why we refer you to the testimonials for an honest and objective opinion on us. And yes, Henk’s shoes (and matching belts) are definitely beyond special!
It was back in 2007 that Henk and Chris decided to set up Expat Mortgages as an independent company devoted entirely to providing expats with mortgage advice in a language they understand.
This initiative was prompted by the increasing number of expats asking for advice on home financing issues and the lack of a good and flexible service for expats by banks and brokers in general at the time.
How we work
Working together is key in the Expat Mortgages’ philosophy.
Together with you we will draw up an inventory of the risks involved when taking out a mortgage.
We will look at what risks would need to be insured and will advise you on products that match your profile and personal situation.
Expat Mortgages is an independent mortgage agency and we are able to provide mortgages from most banks and insurance companies operating in the market.
However, since not every bank is willing to finance or insure an expat, we cannot guarantee to provide a mortgage with every bank and/or insurance company.
We do not have any obligation to mediate for any particular bank or insurance company.
Our consultants do not benefit financially by advising you a particular product.
They earn a basic salary and a variable bonus based on the amount of mortgages agreed.
Expat Mortgages is registered with the Amsterdam Chamber of Commerce under registration number 34208813.
Expat Mortgages is supervised by the AFM ( the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets, which has been responsible for supervising the operation of the financial markets since March 2002).
Our permit is included in the Wft register under number 12016498
Our consultants make sure their expertise and knowledge is up to date by taking annual refresher courses.
