Aaron Hempel - Senior Mortgage Banker
Aaron graduated from the University of Missouri Business School in 1994 and began a successful career at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. He decided to make the move into the mortgage industry in 2000 since he had always had an entrepreneurial spirit which couldn’t be satisfied in a large corporate environment but could as a mortgage banker. During his time as a mortgage originator Aaron has been a top producer and has been acknowledged many times for his customer service. He currently holds his mortgage loan originator license in Missouri and Illinois. Lending has changed greatly since he joined the business in 2000, but with his experience he has helped his clients smoothly navigate their way through the lending process and tailored every loan specific to the client’s situation and needs.
Aaron grew up in Cincinnati, Oh and decided to go to Mizzou upon graduating high school. His family, which consisted of his parents and brother, moved to St. Louis at the end of his senior year of high school which made the move to St. Louis after graduating college an easy decision. Enterprise was not only a great place to get prepared for the business world but it was also a great place to meet many St. Louisans. Aaron grew up as a boy in the era of the Big Red Machine in Cincinnati but has to admit that he’s slowly been converted to a Cardinals fan since making St. Louis his home. He does still like getting back to Cincinnati for some Skyline Chili and Graeter’s Ice Cream.

He made such a "scary" thing not so scary. A simple friendly phone call to make sure I was doing ok throughout the process helped immensely. Aaron and his team were amazing. I will be recommending him to friends and family who are looking to buy a home."
"Aaron was fantastic to work with for multiple reasons. First and foremost, he maintained constant communication with us, so there was never any doubt in our mind about the timeline or if anything was needed from us. Second, he was patient and helpful the whole way through. When we asked to run a few extra scenarios while determining potential loan structures, he was not only willing but happy to take the time to make sure we had the information needed to make a smart decision. Finally, we never felt like we were being sold to. He didn't try to push is into taking out more than we needed, or to go for one plan over another--he listened to us, heard us, and helped us pick the best option for us. In all, he made a significantly stressful process much more bearable from beginning to end. We would absolutely recommend him in the future."
