FRANKLIN, Mass. - (September 19, 2017)

Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. (DKMC), one of the Top 75 Mortgage Companies in America, announced that one of the nation’s top-producing mortgage originators, Harinder “Indy” Johar, has joined the company as director of residential lending, based in DKMC’s Franklin, Mass. branch.

A mortgage professional since 1998, Johar is highly distinguished in the industry. Scotsman Guide, a leading trade journal, has ranked him among the top 25 mortgage originators in the country by loan volume since 2010, and No. 1 in the publication’s national ranking for most loans closed in 2012. Johar originated more than $250 million in loans in 2016.

“This is a big move for me, and I’m excited to be making it,” said Johar. “I work with hundreds of clients a year and am on the job seven days a week, so making this transition was not a casual decision. I’ve done my homework and am confident Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. is where I can find the best support for my business and the best financing options for my clients.”

“We’re truly honored to have Indy as part of our team,” said Paul Lueken, CEO of Downers Grove, Ill.-based Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. “His incredible record and reputation speak for themselves. He could have chosen any mortgage company to work with, so it’s a huge endorsement of who we are and what our firm offers that he joined us.”

The addition of Johar is a notable development in DKMC’s ongoing recruitment and expansion efforts nationwide. With over 40 branches across the country currently, the lender is on pace to add over a dozen locations in 2017. Besides entering the Boston market in late 2016, DKMC recently established a presence in Washington, D.C.; Tennessee; Kentucky; Missouri; Texas; California; and Oregon.
