First Choice Lending is the only way to go
We thought we'd never be able to qualify or afford a house. We talked to Andy Chelton and he worked relentlessly to get us a great loan with an even better rate. We were worried that we'd be buried under a mountain of paperwork and never see daylight again. We were so very wrong. In a few weeks we were sitting at a table signing the loans to our new home. The best part - we got more house for our money than we thought possible. Thanks Andy - Margaret S.


Andy helped me with my loan while waiting on his wife to deliver their baby at the hospital-he was THAT dedicated to making sure my loan would close. Obviously, he is extremely responsive and ready to go out of his way to make sure your transaction goes quickly and smoothly. You can't go wrong with Andy! - Kay S.


10 being the best I give Andy a 10. I have bought aprox 7 or 8 homes in the past. It was always a major paper chase. Andy made the process so easy and painless and fast. Anytime I had a question I called Andy day or night and he was always there to pick up the phone and answer my questions. I will refer people to Andy every time. Great job Andy. - Richard R

If he didn’t know the answer he found out and let us know in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend!! -Christina


It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Bruce Kiper. Would recommend to everyone. And would be happy to work with them again in the future. They have been nothing but on point with all of our questions. With us being new to the process they have been an absolute help. -Richard

Bruce was easy to talk to and made sure I understood everything that was presented to me. He went above and beyond to ensure the process went smoothly. I was very pleased with the interest rate I received. I would absolutely use Bruce Kiper again in the future. -Lori


Bruce was amazing, he and his team went way above and beyond to get us in our forever home! Our loan process was very difficult and Bruce never gave up on us. He worked endlessly to ensure we got the interest rate we wanted the payments we needed and the home we had to have without compromising our needs!

Being a first time home buyer, I felt like I was in good hands every step of the way while working with Bruce. We were able to get a great rate and get everything worked out a week before we had originally planned on. -Michael


Worked with Mr Bruce Kiper. I've got to say, buying your first home is just as scary and as much of a whirlwind as they say it is. Luckily, I had a guy on my side who knew my million text messages and worried emails were just a kid freaking out about his first "adult" purchase. 1st Choice Lending turned out to be the best choice! -Ezra


We recently purchased a home with the help of 1st Choice Lending. The process began with a phone call from Bruce Kiper on July 4th no less and ended on August 6th. From the time we actually put our offer in to the day we closed was less than 30 days! The process was fast and virtually painless. There were couple points of miscommunication or things I would've liked explained in more detail, as this was our first home purchase and I wanted to understand fully what was happening at every turn. However overall it really was a pleasant experience and I would highly recommend 1st Choice Lending to anyone We got a good locked rate with an FHA loan. Our credit was right around 650 and 700. Our credit isn't completely spotless, but they made it happen for us! We will forever be grateful to all the people behind the scenes that we never even knew about that put it together for us! Thank you 1st Choice Lending! -Jennifer


First Choice Lending Services was great. Bruce Kiper and Steve Shelton went above and beyond for me. Very professional people to do business with. If you are in the market for any type of home loan or refi I would highly recommend. -Bryan

Danny helped me with my purchase in 2018 and called me last week about refinancing. He lowered my rate from a 4.5% to a 3% saving me 300 a month. He was able to close the loan in 10 days and did not even need an appraisal! Super happy with him and First Choice Lending! -Jessica


Danny and the team did an amazing job. We close within 30 days, on time! He was very responsive to my fiancée and I throughout the whole home buying process.

Danny was able to get us a pre-qual letter within a couple of hours of us asking him, and that was on a Monday! Mondays are always the busiest day for lenders. Will definitely recommend him to our house hunting friends. -Bryan


Danny Blazier worked tirelessly for my husband and I to be able to purchase our dream home. We are both self employed with complicated tax structures which caused some lenders to turn away. Danny was no only able to get us approved, he offered MULTIPLE loan options ensuring we had the best terms to meet our long term objectives. I’m a realtor and work with many lenders in my business.

To say that Danny is amazing is an absolute understatement! He is ON IT! When you are looking for a lender, you should be looking for someone that returns emails, text messages, and phone calls within a timely manner!

With my husband and I being busy real estate agents, we know that one on one communication is key to accomplishing a successful, smooth, and worry free mortgage process and closing. - Caroline


5 stars!! Danny Blazier helped us buy our first home and the process couldn’t have been smoother! He was easy to talk to and on top of every aspect of the process so that nothing came as a surprise. He even called to check in and answer random questions from a vacation in Italy, and this was before we even made an offer on a house. We were first time buyers with a million questions and a small budget and he always treated us like we were the top priority of the company. I would recommend Danny and First Choice in a heartbeat! -Ryan

First Choice Lending Services LLC has been highly successful since its creation and has enjoyed tremendous growth. This is mostly due to two things: the quality of the employees working at First Choice, and the company’s business priorities.

Jacob Blazier, like the rest of his coworkers, is a hardworking and dedicated agent, with a talent for thinking outside the box. This last quality is especially important for any employee of First Choice, as the organization prizes staff members who can come up with creative solutions for client problems. First Choice lending offers FHA loans, home construction loans, reverse mortgages, and more. Where they differ is in their dedication to personalizing loan products to best fit each customer’s needs.

Jacob Blazier has a creative mind that can come up with solutions to overcome his client’s obstacles. One of his central strengths is his ability to connect with customers, understanding exactly what they need and how best to help them with their loan or mortgage.

At my recent listing Jacob Blazier was the LO for the buyer. He surprised me when he called me to introduce himself and to give me an update on the the buyers progress. Throughout the transaction he kept communicating and called me when we had to extend the closing for a day. Very smooth transaction and I would recommend him any day. Matter of fact I recommended him to a close family member who is currently under contract. -Monique


Jacob was awesome to work with! He is always available by phone and was quick to respond to texts. The best part was, I didnt have to call him much because he was always keeping me updated on my loan process. He made sure we closed and I am forever grateful. -Nicole


I recently was the listing agent on a home in East Nashville and the buyers used Jacob as their lender. I have been in this business for 23 years and unfortunately know that many times lenders for buyers do not communicate well with listing agents. This was not the case with Jacob! He reached out as soon as the buyers were under contract with an email introducing himself and established a good working relationship immediately. He always responded quickly to my calls or texts and kept me updated throughout the process. I have added his name to my very short lender list because of the experience I had with him. He definitely takes good care of his clients and manages and meets expectations. Five stars! -Angelia


Jacob Blazier was so helpful during the home buying process! My wife and I just just bought our dream home and without Jacob’s help it would Not have been possible. I would recommend to anyone who needs to purchase a home. Great experience overall! -Rhett


I had the opportunity to work with Jacob through my first time home buyer clients. The process couldn’t have gone more smoothly. He was always just a phone call away and available to answer any and all questions we had. As an agent, I would recommend giving Jacob a call for any of your lending needs. His goal from day one was to get to the closing table on time and if not, earlier! Very efficient, personable, and just all around awesome! My clients and I are super happy with our experience using Jacob! -Paige


Jacob at First Choice is easy to work with and has great communication. I guess he's a cool guy (joking of course) but seriously, he made my house buying process much less stressful. -Bryan

As a Realtor, you want to make sure you have someone you can trust to handle the lending side and Jacob went above and beyond to earn that trust. My client was a first time home buyer and he ensured that she was aware of every step and guiding her through the process. He worked diligently for my client and jumped through hoops to ensure that we could close on her house in a timely manner. I look forward to working with him in the future, and would recommend him to any other Realtors out there looking for a trustworthy Lender! -Jordan

First Choice Lending Services LLC has been highly successful since its creation and has enjoyed tremendous growth. This is mostly due to two things: the quality of the employees working at First Choice, and the company’s business priorities. First Choice lending offers FHA loans, home construction loans, reverse mortgages, and more. Where they differ is in their dedication to personalizing loan products to best fit each customer’s needs.

As driven individual, Leslie Canale is committed to providing you with nothing short of exceptional service and assistance as you transition through the exciting process of owning your home. One of her strengths is her ability to problem solve and think outside the box, while ensuring she is always available to assist you in any way possible.

First Choice Lending Services, is amazing. We ran into a lot of issues from other areas that Zach, and Danny, at First Choice were able to explain and even a lot of the time help us work through. They both went above and beyond to make everything work and also took the time to explain things. My wife and I had no idea what we were doing “first time home buyers”. Zach really made the whole experience less stressful for us and helped, when we would get frustrated with anything. Now we are in a beautiful house and could not be any happier. -Andrew


My wife and I recently used First Choice to sell our home in Donelson and we couldn't have been happier with the service we received from First Choice. Zach Wyatt was a pleasure to work with and made the loan process a breeze. I would highly recommend First Choice and their team for obtaining a home mortage. -Richard


Zach was incredibly professional to the needs of the buyer I was working with. He was able to get the deal closed very quickly and was always there if I had any questions. I would highly recommend. -Daniel


Zach was great to work with. He was very attentive and was in constant contact throughout the entire process!! -Troy
