A loan officer for over two decades, Art Aguilar has a knack for helping people navigate tough financial decisions. As a branch manager and vice president of mortgage lending at Guaranteed Rate, Aguilar serves clients in the Houston metropolitan area, assisting them with FHA, VA, USDA and conventional lending solutions. “I will never stop trying to be the best that I can be,” he insists. “I might never become the No. 1 loan officer in the country, but I will work my tail off every day trying to do so.”
Giving everyone what he refers to as “the presidential treatment,” Aguilar and his team have a reputation for getting the job done, no matter how complicated the situation. “We are very driven and want to help as many clients as possible, but we never sacrifice customer service for the sake of efficiency,” he says. “We want our clients to enjoy the process and feel like they are a member of our family.”
Assisting over 229 families in the last year alone, Aguilar and his team earned a spot in Guaranteed Rate’s President’s Club. In 2020, the native Houstonian also achieved one of his personal goals of buying his parents a new home. “Being able to give back and purchase my parents a home is like a dream come true,” he explains.
Becoming a dedicated mortgage lender five years ago, Aguilar previously worked in all lending capacities at a small community bank, making him an expert in understanding and accommodating all personality types. “Clients work with people they gel with,” he remarks, “and being able to adapt and get along with people from different backgrounds is key to our success.”
Aguilar is a member of NAHREP North Houston and teaches Sunday school with his wife at their church. He’s also an avid sports fan and loves to travel and spend time with his family.
