Courtney Schaefer is the dedicated, hardworking and knowledgeable driving force behind Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp.’s mortgage operations. During her 24-year tenure, she has risen through the ranks to the role of COO while constantly improving the quality, efficiency and capacity of their lending processes. Her standout leadership and wide-ranging industry knowledge have enabled Draper and Kramer to grow from a small regional lender to one of the nation’s top mid-sized mortgage companies.
Starting out as a loan processor, Schaefer was promoted progressively as she proved her talents for management, finance and process improvement. Achieving the role of director of operations in 2016, she was responsible for upholding the company’s ambitious lending standards on every loan. In 2020, Schaefer oversaw the seamless transition of operations to a work-from-home model, the company’s adaptation to interruptions of available mortgage programs and a rapid staffing increase to capture a surge in loan volume.
