Aki Sayef – Chicago Agent Magazine
Each mortgage professional brings something different to the home financing equation. In the case of Aki Sayef, he brings 27 years of experience in the lending business, fluency in four languages and a ranking among the top mortgage originators in the country. His most important contribution, however, is his passion for providing a reliable, transparent and timely real estate financing experience.
Sayef entered the mortgage industry in 1994 after earning his MBA. In 2005, he joined Draper and Kramer Mortgage, which would become his longtime professional home. Today, as vice president of residential loans at the company’s Downers Grove branch, Sayef serves clients across Chicagoland and the country. He has closed over $1 billion in home loans and is recognized by industry publication Scotsman Guide on its national list of top originators.
“When you work with me, you can expect to receive the most honest service and know that your interests will always come first,” says Sayef. Its service philosophy is to listen to each client in order to offer them financing solutions adapted to their situation and objectives. He takes pride in not only securing loans for his borrowers, but also in establishing himself as a trusted “Lifetime Loan Officer” that they can count on for their future mortgage questions and needs.
Sayef’s favorite part about his job is seeing the many positive reviews he receives. “That’s when I know I’ve done my best for a client, and that encourages me to do even better,” he says. On its 380 customer reviews, it has a customer satisfaction rate of 99%.
Over the past two years, Sayef has been proud to maintain a positive outlook through the ups and downs of the pandemic. Now, with new challenges and opportunities on the horizon for his clients, he looks forward to continuing to do what he does best by bringing everything he offers to every home purchase or refinance.
