Clients always come first. This is the golden rule that Kim Mello has followed ever since she became a loan officer more than 20 years ago. Over 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 they can rely on her for first-class mortgage service. No matter how busy she is, Mello always makes the time to respond to her clients and partners right away when they need assistance.
Mello is a nationally recognized mortgage professional and a vice president of residential lending at the Danvers branch of Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. Industry publications Scotsman Guide and Mortgage Executive Magazine have ranked her among the top mortgage originators in the nation by annual loan volume.
“My biggest motivator is the opportunity to help families to find and finance their forever homes,” Mello says. She works with clients of all types, including first-time homebuyers, move-up buyers and refinancers. Mello says she is committed to being a loan officer for life to every client, serving them from preapproval to closing and beyond.
Outside of work, Mello enjoys living in Wakefield, is the proud mother of two adult sons and loves spending time with her two Jack Russell puppies. She is also a supporter of Boston’s Wounded Vet Run, an event that funds housing modifications and addresses other needs to improve the quality of life of disabled veterans.
In the years ahead, Mello plans to continue growing her network and helping many more families with their home financing. “I’m excited to keep building and working with my team to provide the great service and programs my clients deserve,” she says.
