Draper and Kramer, Incorporated, a national full-service real estate firm, is pleased to announce it has been named a 2022 Top Workplace by the Chicago Tribune. The annual Top Workplaces list is based on results of an employee feedback survey, administered by an independent research firm, that measures multiple aspects of workplace culture.
“Going from a pandemic into a volatile economic climate has had a definite impact on the personal and professional lives of everyone in our firm, which makes earning a top workplace recognition in 2022 particularly meaningful,” said Christine Ramsey, chief administrative officer for Chicago-based Draper and Kramer, which also includes residential mortgage division Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp. “The past couple of years have underscored the importance of being nimble as a company and prepared to respond to the unexpected. Those are qualities that have been at the forefront of our nearly 130 years in business, and we are proud to remain true to our roots as a family-owned business that places a priority on supporting, caring for and engaging our employees.”
Honored in the category of midsize workplaces, Draper and Kramer is one of only a handful of real estate firms among the 192 companies and organizations named to the 2022 Top Workplaces list. It is also among the oldest companies recognized. Since its founding in 1893, Draper and Kramer has been a Chicago-area leader in residential and commercial acquisition, development, property management and leasing; commercial finance; and residential mortgage services. Today, the company has a presence in markets across the country. Draper and Kramer previously received the Tribune honor for three consecutive years, from 2017 to 2019.
