Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corporation (DKMC) has announced the opening of a new Los Angeles-area branch in Calabasas, Calif. The location was previously the branch of a local mortgage lender, and Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. is retaining the Branch Manager, top-producing Loan Originators and some support staff.
 
“This new branch is a big leap for us in the Los Angeles area,” said Paul Lueken, Chief Executive Officer of Draper and Kramer Mortgage. “Bringing an entire new office on board with a veteran group of leadership, origination and support talent is absolutely ideal, and that’s what we’ve done here. We couldn’t be more pleased.”
 
DKMC’s Calabasas branch will be managed by Daryl Wizelman, a 28-year veteran of the Los Angeles-area mortgage industry. Wizelman’s extensive credentials include 17 years of experience as the Owner and President of his own mortgage company, past leadership positions with several lenders in the region and an established name as a speaker, author, consultant and motivator.
 
“My team and I are very excited to be making this move, and I’m eager to welcome other opportunity-seeking mortgage professionals to join us as part of Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp.,” said Wizelman. “One of my first actions with DKMC was to send out a recruiting letter to outside loan officers, and I’ve never had an easier time promoting a company. All I had to do was list the great loan products, aggressive rates, accessible leadership and other amazing resources we offer at DKMC. This is a fantastic development for local professionals in the mortgage industry, as well as consumers in the Los Angeles area.”
 
Three top-producing Loan Officers are also on the branch team: Randy Wagner, Moshe Niv and Curtis Abish. Together, the group originated more than $100 million in loans in 2017.
