    I can’t say enough about First Choice!! To say the least, they are AMAZING! Not only are they great at what they do, but they are also super nice people. I worked with Brannon and Robert to close on my new home. Their expertise made my rather unique situation very easy and I was always kept up to date. I would have an update from them without having to follow up with them first. As stressful as buying a house is, they made the process go as smoothly as possible. Highly recommend First Choice Lending!

    We wanted to take a moment to express our sincerest gratitude for Brannon Taylor at First Choice Lending Services for his exceptional work in helping us close on our new home in such a short timeframe. His dedication, expertise, and prompt action truly made a difference!  Brannon guided us through the mortgage process with utmost professionalism and efficiency. His knowledge and thoroughness ensured that everything was in order, allowing for a smooth and seamless closing.  We are truly grateful for his prompt responses, picking up those late/early phone calls, to our inquiries, and his commitment to providing the best possible service. During the signing, all parties were truly impressed by his team’s work and being able to close on our desired date. Brannon and First Choice was definitely the right choice!  Thanks to your hard work Brannon, we are now proud homeowners, a dream turned into reality in record time!

    Brannon Taylor with First Choice Lending Services is one of the best lender contacts I have the pleasure of working with. Working in the title industry, one comes across many different lenders and I have to say, I’m happy to see both his name and the name of First Choice Lending Services when I have a new refinance or purchase closing file. I would highly recommend this company to any buyer or borrower, as they are able to match a loan to their client, no matter who that client is or what their unique circumstance is! -Beth

    Brannon Taylor was our agent for a recent purchase of a new home. We have worked with a fair number of finance agents over the years and without a doubt Brannon is the most on top of the processes, documents, and communication of all them. He kept us extremely well informed and provided guidance on what we needed to do. When we buy again, he will be our first contact! -Brett

    Brannon Taylor was exceptionally helpful in getting our loan, but also in helping us through the process. Always had or got answers to our questions, day or night. (The dude works loooong hours!)

    Buying a house can be a stressful time, especially when it comes to the financial aspects of the process. Brannon Taylor made the experience a positive one. He was most efficient, and quickly processed my pre-qualification. No doubt I would employ his services in the future, and I highly recommend him to anyone who is in the market for a new home. -Missy

    Could not possibly give a higher recommendation for Brannon Taylor. He went above and beyond, always answered quickly, and made things so easy. Even after I was forced to switch lenders to keep my new build house, he still went out of his way to get me documents and appraisal changes that I needed to close on my home even though he wasn’t benefiting from it at all! I hated not being able to stay with him, but if you are looking for a honest, hard working lender, Brannon is your guy! -Dana

    I highly recommend Brannon. He was extremely easy to work with, communicated clearly and quickly, and went above and beyond in all aspects. Even after I was basically forced to switch lenders at the last minute to keep the new construction house, Brannon still went above and beyond to help get my paperwork and appraisal changes completed so I could close on my home, even though he was not benefiting from the close! Not only is he thorough and knows the process but he proved that there are good, honest people in the industry who aren’t only out for themselves. Would recommend Brannon to ANYONE in the market to get a loan! -Dana

    Brannon is awsome. He did everything possible for us to get our house he went over and beyond. We are so thankful for his work I have probably called him 100 plus times thru this whole process it was my first time buying a house so he was very understanding and great with everything. We have lived here will be 2 years in November he is the only person I would honestly trust and go to to buy a house. We appreciate everything that you have done for us thank you so much :). -Caitlyn

    Brannon was recommended to me by my realtor. He was always easy to reach for any questions I had, and was very thorough and quick with the whole process.

Forever thankful and I will recommend him to everyone I know! -Camille

    He is knowledgeable, courteous, responds very quickly to inquiries, and tailored my loan to fit my situation perfectly. I also needed a quick closing, and he made it happen! -Mefd

    Without Brannon, I would not be a homeowner today. I was a first time buyer with no clue on how the process worked. Brannon walked me through the lending process step by step explaining every little detail including how I could improve my credit score and financial situation prior to applying. He then went out of his way during my home search and negotiations to point out tips and recommendations. Too bad he couldn’t have been my realtor as well!
    I highly recommend Brannon. If you’re looking for a mortgage, call him today!!! -Dylan

    Brannon accomplished all of my lending needs smoothly and without delay.
