Download Report
The corona crisis now also has a far-reaching impact on parishes and church congregations in the Netherlands. Due to declining income, the financial situation is rapidly getting worse. They are more and more often forced to sell one or more churches. About 400 religious buildings have been sold in the last four years, and that number will increase rapidly in the years to come.

I look at the long-term value in my work, and therefore I look at the relationship with my clients as long term as well. I am constantly looking at the choices my clients need to make, and how I can assist them in making the best choice. I have worked for some of my clients for more than 15 years. My work, and that of my team, is based on confidence and trust. For me, these are the key values that I bring to my clients.
