Last week, Thursday October 10, marked the day the Great Chicago Fire was extinguished in 1871. The fire raged for two days and left one third of the city, at that time 324,000 people, homeless. It was in the wake of the Great Fire that Draper and Kramer first opened their doors in the Chicago Loop to help rebuild and develop the city after the devastation.

Throughout the 20th Century, Draper and Kramer became a pioneer in the financial industry, offering its clients the American Dream of owning their own homes and businesses. In 2008 Draper and Kramer merged its experience and resources with the innovative product lines and market expertise of 1st Advantage Mortgage.

I am proud to be a part of the rich history that Draper and Kramer shares with the city of Chicago. For all of your financing needs whether it be a purchase or refinance, I am here to help.
