During her time there she mastered the fields of mortgage and financial planning. Ilja gained more advisory experience with an independent intermediary and another bank. Then she made the conscious choice to come and work for Expat Mortgages. That was very natural for her because at Expat Mortgages she can do what she likes most: to advice and guide customers during the mortgage process. Ilja always has time for her customers. She always feels responsible and will maintain a high service level. Her personal goal is to provide clients with clear advice as soon as possible. She will take the personal wishes into account and adjust options based on the current law and regulations. In her spare time, Ilja likes to catch up with friends and family and loves to travel.
David Ocampo
David has been raised by an Argentinian father and Dutch mother in the city center of Amsterdam and he knows all about the city and neighborhoods. So if you have any questions about the city don’t hesitate to ask them. After studying marketing communications and many different jobs that had nothing to do with this he found his love for mortgages in 2015 when he got to work as an account manager for a mortgage bank. Working since 2017 with expat mortgages he became an experienced consultant with creative solutions to sometimes difficult cases. Next to working with Expat Mortgages David is also an elected politician for the Amsterdam South area, representing an area of 140.000 citizens. In his spare time he can often be found on his boat at the “Vinkeveense plassen”
