Apparently, on the stress level scale, buying a new home ranks second, topped only by loss/illness of a loved one. Well, if you are looking for a way to reduce the stress of dealing with agents and banks and notaries and have a confident and highly competent guide through the process of purchasing a new place we highly recommend Jose! Her and her team are efficient, organized and highly familiar with the functioning of the Dutch financial system. Not to mention patient! We had a lot of questions when we started the process of buying our apartment and we never had to wait to get a complete and concise answer. Her help did not stop there, as we got very useful tips and contacts for the sale of our old home, change of address procedures and much more. Thanks for everything Jose! Sanja
Ik denk dat wij, vergeleken met de gemiddelde hypotheek aanvrager, blijer zijn geweest met je bemiddeling dan anderen.
We zijn weken bezig geweest met scrollen op internet, zoeken, bellen en mailen op zoek naar een hypotheek en ja, toen kwamen jullie.
Veel dank voor je bemiddeling en de open communicatie. Prima.
As an expatriate with income from the UK and The Netherlands when we needed to remortgage our house in Rotterdam the complications of the Mortgage Credit Directive meant that no other consultants except FVB De Boer were able to identify a solution. Jose de Boer was able to arrange our mortgage and went an extra mile to make sure everything was in place before we left for our trip to the USA. It took some time with several hiccups along they way but Jose delivered a very good deal for us. I would certainly recommend FVB De Boer to anyone whose circumstances are not straightforward and are looking for a consultant who will not stop looking for solutions. Peter Burgess
Naar volle tevredenheid geholpen in het hele proces. End to end. Kennis van zaken is ruimschoots aanwezig en door strakke opvolging word je eigenlijk volledig ontzorgd. S. Vehmeijer
As an expat from the U.S. whose Dutch is poor at best, the advisor navigated me and “held my hand” through the process of purchasing my home in the Netherlands. She made the process easy, took the time to explain my options thoroughly, and walked me through all the paperwork. She always responded to my numerous questions, even when she was out-of-the country in a different time zone! I always felt she had my best interests at heart. I was able to close in a matter of a couple of months with no major problems. She is truly professional, but at the same time friendly and approachable. I cannot recommend her services enough and would absolutely use her again if the need arises. Donna Seid
I would definitely recommend and already have recommended to my friends. I was impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of the financial advice. They made buying my first house in Amsterdam a seamless and effortless process. They took the time to explain everything more then once. They helped us with all the dutch documentation as we do not speak dutch. Overall a fantastic experience <e/em>Jessica Manchester
The advisor made my entire home buying experience as stress-free and efficient as it possibly could be. All her advice was clear, helpful, precise and tailored to my needs. She was always available for every question I had, and due to her excellent planning and preparation, the entire process went very smoothly. She came highly recommended to me by friends, and now I understand why ! I will definitely be recommending her to others. Deirdre
Je sluit een hypotheek maar een paar keer in je leven. Dat maakt je onzeker. Het gaat immers om de vertaling van grote bedragen naar de invloed daarvan op je huishoudbudget. Het bureau De Boer weet die vertaalslag als geen ander te maken. Op de lange weg vol, steeds weer andere, en ongerustmakende voetangels en klemmen is het bureau professioneel, begripvol en meer dan optimaal bereikbaar. In ons geval was op een aantal momenten veel haast geboden. De uitleg was altijd helder, meelevend. En het schijnbaar onmogelijke was er steeds weer toch op tijd. Waar een eerder, ander, contact zes weken voor nodig had redde het bureau De Boer binnen zes dagen, en onder gunstiger voorwaarden. Van harte aanbevolen! Henk van der Winden
The advisor and her colleagues provide a great service. I was provided with multiple possible mortgage models, good advice on which one to chose, and clear explanations of future options to further save money. They provide clear information and explanations of how the whole mortgage/house buying process works. There was also some good advice on property in general. They provide personal visits to your location to discuss matters and are always available by phone or email. I was also able to arrange life/mortgage insurance through them. Overall they provide an excellent service which saved me time, worry and money. Declan
Het proces was vlot en geen stress. Ze waren altijd beschikbaar voor vragen en adviezen
Help in explaining various financial questions in buying process and first steps after property is bought, prompt reply and easy communication on any questions with detailed information, all questions were tackled professionally with personal approach. I had great feeling that advisor knows her field and cares about her clients during buying process to ensure client feels good and calm as all financial and insurance questions are taken care of and looked into. Personally I experienced very good time working with the agency. Especially I wanted to highlight that de Boer office was always ready to do extra step to help me to make sure all paper work done and clear for myself for financial and home insurance question.
Financial Consultants de Boer provided excellent service. Not only that the mortgage offered was very good, but they also did background value check of the property. Service delivered was of the highest quality and in very efficient fashion. It really helped us a lot through the process of buying of our first property in a foreign country.

Hi Jose, Good to hear from you. I am more than happy settling in my new home and things are starting to take the right shape. Your service was wonderful and I will recommend you straight away to anyone interested in buying a house. Thank you and your team for everything.
Once again thank you for the service it was brilliant. Our builder has been working hard on the house and we’ll be in by the end of November, can’t wait!
Dear José, Nancy and José, I wanted to thank you all very much indeed for your invaluable help in clinching my mortgage (and the very attractive rate!) and for organising my house insurance and personal liability too. It has been a great pleasure dealing with you.
Dear José, I just checked my mortgage online I am very happy for the quick and very good service I received from Nancy. I hope you are well and will have time to enjoy your National teams in both hockey as well as soccer. Hup Holland Hup.
It has been a real pleasure to work with you, Jose. I have found you so professional, friendly and very responsive to my individual needs and preferences. You can quote me as a satisfied client!
I am doing great in Holland, very happy with my house indeed!
I will always recommend your services because you are the best, not to mention the services provided by your assistant José; she was always so quick to respond and assist in the most efficient way. Amazing!
I received a notice from SNS bank and just want to thank you for arranging the change. Even my mortgage payment dropped.
I will call you before my next trip to the Hague. Would love to treat you to champagne.
I am a UK Expat and i was buying a property in Amsterdam. I was greatly assisted by everyone I met from this organisation. They are professional, courteous, and reliable. They bring intelligence and experience to the situation and manage well through the inevitable ups and downs of negotiating and finalising a mortgage. Nice people to do business with. I would definitely recommend them.
Everything was fully explained in both Dutch and Englisch. They were quick with sending feedback, the service was even better than expected.
We received good advices and full support by FVB . At the end we bought our apartment and everything has gone well. We are happy and fully satisfied of received services. I suggest to everyone to contact “Financieel Voorlichtingsbureau de Boer”.
Aniello & Marinella
They guided me and my partner smoothly through the process of buying a house in The Hague. They offered tailored advise to us as expats, one of their specialities, and we really appreciated their friendly, personal approach. Thanks!
Rob & Bibi
I would definitely recommend this office to anybody. We received very good and clear advice. She cares about you and your situation. She was present with us for every steps even when you wouldn’t expect her to!
I just want to say a big thank you for all your assistance and patience over the past few years – I finally made it! Please also thank your team. Another big thank you for the gorgeous basket of hyacinths which are going find pride of place in my new place.
I am happy with my final decision and look forward to enjoying a new life there!
A quote from a Dutch ‘Sinterklaas’ poem:
“Dan was het dit, dan was het dat
Zo was er elke keer weer wat.
Een BSN nodig, dan weer niet.
Allemaal moeilijk zoals je ziet.”
“Dan maar een adviseur ingehuurd
En dat heeft jullie niet bezuurd
Jose de Boer, die wist van wanten.
Ze deed echt ALLES voor haar klanten!”
David en Jacinta
José and Jose have been a great help in getting the right mortgage for me. They give good advice in clear and simple terms. Highly recommended.
Ben de Boer
We wanted to express our gratitude for all your services and patience while dealing with our finances. We will be recommending your services to everyone.
Ania and Kahlan
Hey Jose, I think you changed my experience in Den Haag for a life time!
It has always been a pleasure to work with Jose. She is a true professional, trustworthy and an extremely talented individual who provided excellent financial advice. She is motivated by challenges and getting the greatest results for her clients. Jose works with high profile customers, teams and group projects. She has a high energy level and displays consistency in day to day operations and has superior interpersonal abilities. Jose delivers on what she promises and ensures the customer that they receive the highest ROI when they work with her company. I can highly recommend Jose’s financial expertise and I’m looking forward to working with her again.
You have been particularly kind in helping me and it is highly appreciated. It is undoubtedly first class service that you provide from both professional and customer point of view.
“The quality of José’s advice is, quite simply, second to none. José shares the same commitment, as myself, to providing the very highest quality of client advice which makes working with her an absolute pleasure and one where I look forward to many years of ongoing mutual support.
The feedback which I receive from my clients, concerning the mortgage advice that they have received from her, is always very positive. Not only does José provide an exemplary service concerning all matters relating to the search, price negotiation and all administration relating to the property purchase, she is often able to secure preferential mortgage terms as a result of her long standing relationships, and network, within the Dutch mortgage market.
I have had clients, literally, at the point of signing for a mortgage with another broker. Following my advice they decided to speak to José. I subsequently learn, from my client, that José was able to obtain a considerably more attractive mortgage for them. One very pleased client.”
Thank you again for your clear, kind, honest and free advice (for the second time!). Whenever I may need to hire you, I will not hesitate to do so.
Marko Divac Öberg
Thank you again for making the overall housing buying experience a smooth and understandable process. We’ll be sure to recommend you to any friends in the market for buying.
Claire and Anthony Ford
We would like to thank you very much for all the good advice, coaching, guidance, support and follow up to make us “house owners”. We feel grateful and fortunate to have counted on you to change our living style! All family members are very happy and enjoying the new house.
David & Vanessa
Hi Jose, Ik wil je nog even bedanken voor je goede zorgen en snelheid. Het was bijzonder prettig om samen te werken en je te leren kennen. Hoop tot snel!!
