    Highly Recommended!

    Cannot recommend enough. Made our first-time home buying experience a pleasant one. Many of the other companies we were referred to couldn't handle our specific questions or life experiences (job change in the middle of purchasing), but Draper and Kramer made it happen positively. Wonderful experience.

    Made the Impossible Possible

    My wife and I were buying a house at a time most people told us would be impossible. I was in the middle of a career change and my wife was transferring to a new workplace shortly before closing. Neither of us make a fortune and we had a very specific dream home in mind. We knew we had to make a move quick to get it. We called several loan officers, all the big names plus the referrals from friends, but none of them could give us anything positive to work with. Then we worked with Jesse. Jesse had a positive answer for every question, was very quick to respond to questions, treated us with respect (first-time homebuyers, so our questions, I'm sure, were ridiculous to him), and made our dream come true. My realtor has been a family friend and I won't refer or use anyone else. Now Jesse is the only loan officer I'll refer or use... Read More

    The Dellingers

    Draper and Kramer were very easy to work with and by far the best mortgage company we've dealt with thus far. All agents who contacted us along the home buying process were personable and very informative. Would choose Draper and Kramer again in a heartbeat!

    The Dellingers

    Michelle was AWESOME to work with! My husband and I shopped around for mortgage companies and came across Draper and Kramer and they, specifically Michelle, wouldn't let us go. She worked magic with the numbers and got us the best deal. She was available at any point during the process to answer every question. This is our third house and Michelle and Draper and Kramer are by far the best company we've dealt with thus far! Would recommend her in a heartbeat.... Read More

    Honest reliable best service ever

    I cannot say enough good things about Jesse Bowman, his style and work ethic are surpassed by none. We have closed on 21 homes and this was the easiest ever I simply competed the online lending tree application and immediately was called by dozens of lenders who had no idea what they were doing. Jesse called briefly explained who he was and ask if he could help; no promises just if he could help. I explained my situation and 12 days later we were at the closing table. If you want honest reliable service i highly recommend calling Jesse... Read More

    Testimonial - Michelle Black

    Michelle Black was my lender and I would recommend her to anyone. She provided was extremely helpful and supportive during this journey. She also showed gave me recommendations on how to quickly increase my credit score as I had recently had a late mortgage payment - which greatly impacted my score. My only regret is that it didn’t work out for me to complete a mortgage loan with her as I received better rates else...so good that I just couldn't pass them up; although for the time we worked together her service was top notch...

    A huge thanks to Michelle Schehr!

    Michelle Schehr was extremely helpful and quick to respond with my many questions through the refinancing process. The costs, ease of getting everything nailed down and completed, and speed of getting things wrapped up exceeded my expectations. I would certainly recommend to a friend.
