The European Valuers’ Alliance is composed of Europe’s leading real estate valuation companies, all working together as a network to offer a reliable, consistent valuation service right across the continent.
In total, it includes more than 250 professional valuers, who, during the course of 2017, carried out approximately 50,000 instructions with a total value of over €350 billion.
Our valuers have to meet the highest professional standards to become members, which, in practice, means either being regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, approved by HypZert (or an equivalent local organisation), or having internal procedures that are ISO9001 compliant.
We also insist that members must have a rigorous control procedure in place to be certain that those standards will be maintained.
When we select members, the size of a company is not a factor, but rather their demonstrable expertise in local markets and the quality of the service they provide.
When these individual companies operate together under our brand, their close cooperation offers our clients intimate local knowledge combined with European best practice and vision. So, you can expect to enjoy the same level of service you would usually find locally, but on a European scale.
We are a Europe-wide network of commercial and residential real estate valuation specialists, offering our clients leading local professionals in each core European market. This means our clients will enjoy the same level of service and local knowledge right across Europe from perhaps the largest number of specialists in niche sectors on the continent.
Eight leading valuation companies offering local knowledge across 11 European countries.
