MVA Certified Expat Broker

The MVA is the professional organisation for estate agents active in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. It represents some 500 certified and experienced estate agents working in Amsterdam, Abcoude, Aalsmeer, Amstelveen, Hoofddorp, Diemen, Landsmeer, Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, Uithoorn, Waterland, the Zaanstreek and Zwanenburg.

The MVA is the largest regional section of the Nederlandse Vereniging van Makelaars (NVM) [Netherlands Association of Real Estate Brokers].

The MVA was established in 1877. It merged in 1984 with the Nederlandse Bond van Makelaars [Netherlands Federation of Real Estate Brokers], the forerunner to the NVM. All MVA members are thus also members of the NVM, the Netherlands’ largest trade association.


Buying a house or apartment is probably one of the biggest financial decisions you'll ever take in your life. How can an MVA estate agent guide you through this process?

After having discussed your specific residential needs and options at length with no obligation for you, your estate agent will explain what he/she can do for you. The agent will then indicate how much his/her services cost. If you commission the agent to work for you, the terms of the commission will be laid down in writing.
