The quality mark for estate agents
It is time for a fair bidding process
Eerlijk Bieden is a completely independent quality mark for estate agents, which guarantees the consumer a 100% fair bidding process. Thanks to the use of smart software and audits, we contribute to a fair housing market!
What exactly is Eerlijk Bieden ?
Eerlijk Bieden is a quality mark for estate agents. In order to comply with our quality mark, two important requirements apply: brokers use our special bidding software and brokers are subject to periodic audits. By using these two tools, we can guarantee a 100% fair bidding process.
The bidding software
Affiliated brokers use our special bidding software, which ensures that the industry rules are always upheld, without detracting from the sales result.
Prevention is better than cure. Nevertheless, it can happen that doubts arise about a bidding process. In order to maintain our quality mark, we use random audits among our members. If in doubt, the consumer can always report it.
Since the launch of Eerlijk Bieden in September 2021, more than 650 homes throughout the Netherlands have already been sold fairly!
Through our interactive and multilingual bid form, we have been able to process more than 5,500 bids.
Based on anonymous feedback from sellers, candidates and estate agents, we continue to build Eerlijk Bieden every day.
Why is Eerlijk Bieden important?
In a boiling dry housing market, tensions can run high. It is therefore of great importance that there is no doubt about the role of the estate agent, the director of the sales process. Thanks to the quality mark Eerlijk Bieden , nepotism, illegal price fixing and discrimination are prevented.
Initiator of the bid log
Eerlijk Bieden has successfully introduced the bid log into the brokerage industry in 2021. Thanks to this bid log, the sales process has become transparent and verifiable.
