Clients always come first. This is the golden rule that Kim Mello has followed ever since she became a loan officer over 20 years ago. Throughout the years, she has helped countless families with their financial goals and needs. With repeat borrowers and referrals always emailing and calling, she’s built a loyal network that knows she’ll get the job done quickly, efficiently and with a personal flair. No matter how busy she is, Kim always makes the time to respond to her clients and partners right away when they need assistance.
The past year was an eventful one for Kim. In January 2020, she joined the Danvers branch of Draper and Kramer Mortgage as a vice president of residential lending, and she closed over $78 million in loans for the year, easily qualifying for the company’s President’s Club for top-producing loan officers. Driving her motivation was the opportunity for families to find and finance their forever homes. “Although I’ve been in the mortgage industry for over 20 years, I was able to connect with my customers quickly and efficiently and serve more families than ever before,” she says.
When Kim isn’t working, she’s enjoying life in Nahant. She owns a home on the water, where she raised her two sons, who are now in their 20s. She is also a proud supporter of Boston’s Wounded Vet Run, an organization that funds housing modifications and addresses other needs to improve the quality of life of disabled veterans.
Over the next few years, Kim plans to continue her upward momentum and help many more families with their home financing. “I’d love to keep building and working with my team to provide the great service and programs my clients deserve,” she says.
