Chet Hileman - Senior Mortgage Banker
Chet Hileman grew up in a home where the importance of real estate investment and maintaining a strict budget were stressed from an early age. This upbringing created a passion for real estate investment, mortgage advising, credit restoration and money management. Generally Chet is most happy when he’s able to help his clients achieve their dreams of homeownership. Chet has been a mortgage banker since 2005 after graduating from the University of Missouri at Columbia. He has remained successful even through the mortgage meltdown of 2008 and has continued to consistently rank among the industry leaders in both production and client satisfaction. Chet has grown his business from the ground up through a robust referral network that he’s built over his career. Chet is currently the president of Referral Partners Group who meet in Clayton Missouri on a weekly basis to discuss business and pass referrals to trusted business partners.
Chet is married to Katie Kemp Hileman who is a local graphic designer. They have two adorable dogs, Lucy and Benny who somehow occupy most of their time. When not working or spending time with family, Chet enjoys playing rugby for a local club team where he also serves as a member of the board.

He was kind and never pressured me, kept in regular contact, and made it easy to get in touch with him. He made the experience as simple and painless as possible."

Stephen Casey - First Time Buyer
"Chet was the first person I contacted to help me through the financial side of the home buying process, and he ended up being the best advisor I could have asked for. He was always prompt to respond, knowledgeable about the ins and outs of the mortgage process, and personable and courteous from start to finish. I felt very comfortable working with Chet over the three months it took to secure my new home, and he was a huge help as my situation changed several times during the process, sometimes at the last minute. Chet made the whole mortgage process as easy and worry-free as possible, and he will absolutely be my number one choice should I find myself in the market to buy once again."
