Draper and Kramer Overview
Established in 1893 by Arthur W. Draper and Adolph F. Kramer, we remain family-owned and one of the leading privately held property and financial service firms in the United States. From our deep roots in Chicago, where we have created a legacy of notable projects and helped shape neighborhoods over the past 125 years, today we have a national reach and offer owners and users of real estate expertise in a broad range of solutions to meet their needs.
We currently have over $1 billion in assets under management, $300 million in developments, $3 billion in commercial loan production and $1.8 billion in residential loan production. Over the last 10 years alone, we have acquired or sold over $1.6 billion in real estate. Our residential mortgage operations have grown to include licenses for 46 states plus the District of Columbia and more than 50 branch locations nationwide.
