Since coming on board with First Choice Lending in January of 2014, Randy Carie has become one of our senior Mortgage Originators receiving top loan officer awards on several occasions. Rooted in working class ethics, he has developed a “sense of care” and true understanding for how important purchasing a home can be. With that understanding, he has a genuine passion for helping people purchase their home.

Randy grew up in southern Indiana, working on farms, playing sports, and enjoying the outdoors. He then continued his passion for sports by playing collegiate baseball and eventually graduating from Indiana State University in 1996. Randy moved to Nashville as an aspiring musician in 1997 and was able to play music all around the Nashville area for years, as well as different parts of the world until starting a family in 2008. Now days, you can find him (or hear him!) coaching his son in baseball where he and his wife, Becky, and son, Zachary, live in Hendersonville, TN.

“My clients deserve my best effort. They deserve to be treated with the same respect and dignity that I would want to be treated… So, that’s what I try to do.” – Randy Carie

I worked with Randy since the start of my process of purchasing my home. Since the beginning, Randy was on top of things. He was always willing to answer my questions or get back to me if he didn’t know the answer to it at that moment. Every time I needed a new document or form filled out he made it easy for me to do through emails. The closing almost didn’t happen on the day it was supposed to but thanks to Randy going above and beyond it was possible. Thanks First Choice and thank you Randy. Will definitely recommend to anyone trying to purchase a home! -Angel

I would like to start off by saying THANK YOU RANDY. This was our first time buying a home and he made it all possible. His professionalism, communication and care is second to none. You may always hear Lendor’s are just there to take your money, This is not the case if you work with Randy. He will walk you step by step through all the numbers and ensure you the best rate’s. We are very pleased and thankful for Randy. If you are looking for someone to help you, look no further call him NOW. -Juan
