I have had the pleasure to receive advice on financing for purchase of a house and subsequently receiving services in obtaining the mortgage for the house. The whole customer journey is great from initial requirements clarification, considering options to obtaining the best possible mortgage. Getting the mortgage settled with a bank by Independent Expat Finance as service provider means minimum effort for the customer and the shortest path to obtaining the financing needed. I can highly recommend these services.

Highly Recommend this company. I mainly dealt with Liaget and Ferry on any topics in regards to financing. Both are absolute professional, always available and very patient in explaining everything (especially documents only available in dutch). Was a pleasure working with them! I briefly dealt with Rogier on all things insurance and got an equally as good and thorough service.

I highly recommend Independent Expat Finance to everyone. They do more then advisory, you can make sure that you will get answers for your questions anytime. I could not complete my mortgage journey without help of Serge and his team. If you are planning to take out a mortgage, don’t search for anywhere else especially if you are an expat in Netherlands

Highly recommend! I have worked with them twice the first time everything went smooth even though I was out of the country. The second time the Real Estate Agency was a scammer but luckily Independent Expect Finance handled everything professionally and didn't give up the fight. All in all, they are amazing and give great financial advice.

We worked with Liaget for couple of services; from mortgage application to life insurance. His expert advice and strong follow up helped us to get all services on time in full. We were able to get our mortgage approved almost only after 1 month in Amsterdam. It was not a typical application but still he handled very carefully and professionally. Would recommend his services to others as well.
