Cathy L. Schneider, Vice President of Residential Lending

Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp.

Experience counts when financing a home, and that’s just what mortgage professional Cathy Schneider brings to every transaction. With 24 years of experience in residential lending and 39 years total in financing, she has been involved in all aspects of real estate and finance throughout her professional life. Over the course of her career, she has closed more than $700 million in home loans and distinguished herself as one of the nation’s top mortgage originators.

Today, Schneider is a vice president of residential lending at Draper and Kramer Mortgage. She is based at the company’s Northbrook branch and serves clients throughout Chicagoland and Illinois and across the country. Thanks to her prolific loan-origination record, she is a longtime member of Draper and Kramer Mortgage’s President’s Club for top-producing loan officers, and industry publication Scotsman Guide recognizes her on its national Top Originators list.

Schneider says she treats each loan she handles as if it were her own. “I serve everyone with respect, dignity and appreciation,” she declares. “If a specific loan program or product doesn’t make sense for a borrower, then I don’t recommend it.” For Schneider, her favorite part of the job is interacting with clients and helping them get into new homes or strengthen their financial positions. In return, her clients — all of whom are referrals — describe her as extremely responsive, detailed and caring.

When not working with her borrowers, Schneider loves spending time with her family, being outdoors and giving back to her community. She serves on the board at Tri-Con Child Care Center (a subsidized preschool), has served on the board at North Shore Congregation Israel and volunteers at organizations throughout the Chicago area.

As the mortgage and real estate markets continue to change, Schneider is as dedicated as ever to serving her clients with the benefit of her experience. “I’m looking forward to helping my current and future borrowers make the most of this crazy market we’re in now,” she says.
