About Richard

During his many years as a licensed Real Estate Broker, Richard "Dick" F. Walter realized that financing was the most important part of a real estate transaction. With that philosophy in mind, he has been actively involved in originating mortgages since 1970.

Over the years, Dick expanded what began as Richard F. Walter Inc. Realtors to include Walter Financial, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based mortgage company. In 2016, Dick made the decision to join forces with Draper and Kramer Mortgage Corp., winding down his other businesses so that he could focus solely on providing clients with the exceptional lending products and services backed by DKMC.

While the detail-heavy work of lending keeps Dick busy, he has learned that life is short, and every day is a gift one must enjoy. Having survived stomach cancer, Dick works long, hard days Monday through Friday but can be found deep sea fishing with his family or flying on the weekends! On vacations, Dick goes paragliding over Schloss Neuschwanstein (aka: the Cinderella Castle) in Bavaria, Germany or exploring exotic countries and cultures around the world with his wife of 50+ years, Betty.
