About Joe Bayer Jr.
Joe Bayer Jr. graduated from Truman State University with a BA in Communications. Shortly after, he ventured into the working world, beginning his journey at Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Over the course of 10 years, Joe rose from an entry-level position to area rental manager for the mid-county region of St. Louis County.
After many years and wonderful experiences at Enterprise, Joe made the move to First Integrity Mortgage Services, where he began working for the family business as Vice President of Business Development — an opportunity that allowed him to focus on moving the business forward through relationships, innovation, and strong partnerships.
Now, as Chief Yes Strategist and CEO, Joe is responsible for the overall well-being and growth of the company. He states, “We are an independent mortgage banking firm that prides itself on doing exactly what our name implies — handling customers and providing quality products and services with the utmost integrity. It is precisely for this reason that we are the 3rd oldest mortgage company in the St. Louis area. As an STL native, I could not be more thrilled to lead a business whose goal is to build up communities in a city I love.”
Joe’s drive in the industry reaches far outside the walls of First Integrity. Joe is the former President of the Mortgage Bankers Association of St. Louis and the current Vice Chairman of the Mortgage Bankers’ Association of Missouri. Joe was also appointed by the Governor of Missouri to sit on the Missouri Residential Mortgage Board.
Joe is married to the lovely Theresa Bayer and has two incredible children. He enjoys cooking for his family and trying new foods together as well as traveling to new places (but preferably something that allows for an outdoor adventure). His strong love for nature and family fuels his roles as both Assistant Scoutmaster in his son’s Scouts BSA Troop (formerly Boy Scouts of America) and an active Paraquad Board Member (an organization that has dramatically helped his father and so many others on their road to independence).
