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.
Michael Shadowens, 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.
Michael Shadowens 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.

Great To work with. Quick response time. Made the buying experience fun. If you need to refinance or new home give this guy a call you won’t regret it! -David J
As first time buyers, my husband and I had absolutely no idea how things worked or what paperwork we would need to get done. Thankfully our loan officer Michael Shadowens held our hands through the whole process, step by step, overcoming any obstacles and helped us gather and sign everything we needed. I must mention that all of this was done with us being in Kentucky, and Michael in Tennessee! That’s what really impressed us. Even with the distance, he made us feel like his office was right next door because his communication was excellent. If we had any worries or questions whether at 5AM or 10PM, his reply time was immediate.
We’re very grateful for professionals like Michael getting us into our home and will definitely recommend him to our friends and family. – Perla V
Michael was absolutely the best! We had spoke with several lenders over the past year and a half and kept getting very bad advice on how to get to where we needed to be. We spoke to Michael, he gave us a game plan that we followed and we were able to get into a house in no time! He worked very hard on our loan, spent so much of his time and definitely went above and beyond when I am sure other people would have given up. We can’t thank him enough for making our first home purchase possible!!! -Nikkie L
Michael was very efficient and very eager to help me get everything done that I needed to, to make sure that I was able to get the current house I recently purchased. The turn around time was quick and painless. -Derrick
Michael’s calm assurances and expertise throughout the process made the financing journey much less stressful. He made sure that I was able to take advantage of loan opportunities that would save me money and was available 24/7 for any questions or concerns. Michael was very personable, encouraging and is definitely an expert in his field.
I am very thankful that I had the opportunity to meet Michael and to take advantage of his expertise firsthand. -Eileen
Micheal worked with me on 2 different homes and both times he was always professional and willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. He was taking calls on the weekend, answering any questions we had. When a road block would hit us he would come up with multiple options. If your looking for someone to walk you through getting a home this is the guy. If i went to buy another home tomorrow there would not be another option then to use Micheal. he made the whole process much much easier on me and he will do the same for you. Even the realtor said Micheal would not have time to close our FHA loan on March 5th cause they typically take 45 days to close, Micheal closed on march 5th which was 27 days. This guy knows what he is doing and he is a pleasure to work with, you wont be disappointed. -Bobby
Couldn’t be happier with First Choice Lending! I worked with Michael Shadowens and was beyond impressed with his knowledge, professionalism, and consistency. He made the process of buying our home a breeze, and ensured all of our questions and concerns were answered. It’s rare to find a mortgage consultant that genuinely cares and that has your best interest in mind during this process. The service and compassion he has provided my family and I deserve beyond more than 5 stars. Thanks Michael for all your help, we would recommend you to anyone and will be using you with any future home purchases! -Alexa
Michael was extremely helpful–even when I changed my mind several times at the last minute. He was still able to meet my requests and seemed to always be on top of whatever situation came up. Highly recommend! -Jeff
This was my first home buying experience. Michael was very patient and always took time to explain things. I had met with other brokers before meeting Michael, I never felt as confident with them as I did with him, right out the gate. -Andrea

I HIGHLY recommend Michael Shadowens with First Choice. We had a great experience as first time home buyers. When we started the process, we weren’t quite home ready but Michael walked us through the process and advised us for an ENTIRE YEAR before we were prepared to start the process. Michael was much more than a lender to us. He stood by his word, made himself available, and was kindly honest throughout the process. You will NOT be disappointed! -Nisha
Michael was there for us every step of the way…He was there to answer all of our questions if he did not have a answer he would get back to the same day..We well defiantly be using him in the future for our next loan. -Sherry
