Tom Jarrett Branch Manager NMLS 742280

HENDERSONVILLE, TN (February 25, 2019) – New Jersey-based residential mortgage lender First Choice Loan Services Inc., a Berkshire Bank Company announces the addition of Tom Jarrett as branch manager based in Hendersonville, Tennessee.


Beginning his career in the mortgage industry 15 years ago, Jarrett has held leadership positions with Wilmington Financial Services, First Guaranty Bank, Gibsland Bank and Trust, PHH Mortgage, AmCap Mortgage, Loan Simple and First Family Mortgage Company.


Several factors encouraged Jarrett’s professional move to First Choice Loan Services.


“Throughout my career, I have placed the needs of my borrowing families and business partners as my top priority. When I found this same focus at First Choice Loan Services, I knew this is the place for me. It’s an awesome opportunity to work for a company that approaches each mortgage as a family, not a file. With this shared vision, I’m confident in starting this new chapter with the right company,” said Jarrett. “The company recently has been named Top Mortgage Employer by National Mortgage Professional Magazine, ranked as one of the Fifty Best Mortgage Companies to Work For by Mortgage Executive Magazine and ranked for Top Overall Volume by the Scotsman Guide. With all this in mind, it’s a perfect time to join in the momentum of First Choice Loan Services.”


The addition of Jarrett as a branch manager makes First Choice Loan Services’ Executive Vice President of National Production James Iley very happy.


“In addition to his vast experience, Tom brings a keen knowledge in construction and USDA loans. This kind of background will contribute greatly to the efforts and current growth of First Choice Loan Services,” said Iley. “Even more importantly, we have witnessed the importance that Tom places on those he serves. His emphasis on exceptional customer service is admirable, and we are committed to supporting Tom in meeting the home financing needs of his clients today and well into the future.”
