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

Mr. Carie is by far the best loan officer I have had the pleasure in doing business with. Mr. Carie and First Choice Lending took care of all my needs and made the home buying process simple and worry free. -KC

Randy was great to work with! This was our second home purchase and we were purchasing from out of state. We had worked with other lenders from around the area and Randy was the most prompt and straight to the point as if we were his only clients. We would highly recommend Randy for those things stated above, as well as, his knowledge within the home buying, selling, and other’s in the process which we would highly recommend as well!
