Andy was great to work with, and did everything in his powers to be to make my closing happen, so happy I went with a local lender!!!! -Randy
Andy Chelton was more than helpful! I am a first time home buyer, and so of course I had a million and one questions. Andy never hesitated to answer any question I had, whether complex or silly and simple, or whether I had already asked it. He made sure I understood everything with this process, and kept in touch with me almost daily via text or email. Amazing experience! -Jessica
Andy Chelton is who helped my wife and I through the process of purchasing our new home. It was a great experience from the almost instant pre-approval all the way through the closing. Andy is a true professional that knows how to get through all of the ups and downs that are a part of the super complicated mortgage process. If you are considering a new home purchase I would highly recommend that you reach out to Andy to guide you through. -Sctpiehl
There TRULY is not enough I can say about Andy and the whole First Choice team!! We decided just all of a sudden that the time was right to step out and buy a home. Andy was there every single step of the way, we were first time home buyers and he took the time to answer all my questions no matter what time of day! Andy was very thorough and committed to making the VA loan work to get us the house we wanted. He never stopped working until the day we closed ON TIME 🙂 Andy is very easy to work with, and when and if the time comes to buy another home we will settle for nothing less than ANDY!!! Thank you soooo much Sir, for ALL that you did for us!!!! -Sarah
Awesome!!!! I bought my first home through them and they didn’t give up until I got my beautiful home. If you are buying, you should use them. I am glad I did!!!! – Rebecca W.

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

Andy Chelton was the best! He was so helpful and I am so thankful for him! I closed Feb. 11 2019 and anytime I have a question- he is still more than willing to help me. The government shut down postponed things a little bit- but he always kept me updated and he never gave up hope. I hope he understands how greatly I appreciate everything he did for me! 🙂 THANK YOU! -Haley
