The everyday work of NVM members involves a market that crosses national borders and that is subject to European regulation.
The NVM sees its role as representing the interests of its members in a European context as robustly as possible. By participating in a number of Europe-wide associations and organizations, the NVM ensures that the voice of Dutch real estate professionals is heard, and helps to influence decisions and directives involving common European professional standards. The NVM is a member of the following international associations:
