LOMBARD, Ill. - (May 01, 2017)

Three Chicago-area loan officers at Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp., one of the Top 100 Mortgage Companies in America, were ranked among the top in the nation in the 2016 “Top Originators” rankings published in April by Scotsman Guide, a leading trade journal for the mortgage industry. Now in its eighth year, the annual feature ranks mortgage originators on a number of performance metrics and is billed by the publication as the “most comprehensive, most intensely verified list of its kind”.

The three Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. (DKMC) loan officers included in the rankings are all based in Illinois: Steve Siwinski at DKMC’s Buffalo Grove branch; Suren Sampat in the lender’s Naperville office; and Jeff Slater out of the company’s Lombard headquarters. Each is among the top 500 loan originators in 2016 by total dollar volume: Siwinski at No. 115 with $131,141,454 in volume; Sampat at No. 248 with $101,715,388; and Slater at No. 419 with $82,356,037. Siwinski and Sampat also appear in the top 300 list for most loans closed: Siwinski at No. 33 with 666 loans, and Sampat at No. 228 with 330 loans. In addition, Siwinski ranks No. 1 in the state of Illinois by FHA volume, with $36,199,775 in FHA loans.

“I’m proud to see our top producers recognized again this year in these rankings,” said Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. CEO Paul Lueken. “We distinguish ourselves in the market with exceptional service and flexible lending, so it’s always encouraging to see nationally recognized results flow from those values.”

As a company, Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. funded over $2 billion in loans in 2016, the firm’s best retail year to date.
