Wouter Hofstee Holtrop
Expat Mortgages
Wouter Hofstee Holtrop is a Senior mortgage advisor at Expat Mortgages, but make no mistake to associate him with a typical advisor. He will impress you with his open attitude, great smile and probably a few jokes right from the first encounter. Wouter loves complex mortgage applications, mostly done for entrepreneurs, but he also likes to talk about the basics of obtaining a mortgage in the Netherlands at different events.

In his spare time he does lots of outdoor sports like kitesurfing, jogging, hockey and golf. Probably that is why he lives in Overveen, close to the beach and the waves.
He's been working with Expat Mortgages for more than 5 years and loves the international character of the company. He will be happy to answer any questions, and the more challenging they are, the better!
