Flat Branch Home LoansMeet Carter Arey
Columbia has been Carter’s homebase for him and generations of family for many years. So, providing loans to locals in the community really hits home for him. He understands the relationship between lender and borrower and hones in on this connection when locals stop in for their homebuying process. Carter has been working in loan origination for the past three years and in real estate for four years prior. To say he knows every step of the home-buying process is quite accurate. He connects so well with lending because of the teaching and coaching aspects of the job. In this profession, there’s a lot of information to take in, and he loves sharing this new knowledge with his first-time homebuyers. Carter believes building the trust, similar to a team bond, is the most fun part of his career. His upbeat and approachable character comes naturally as a native midwestern. Out of the office, he enjoys time off to fish, golf, and hang out with his canines. Just keeping it simple and positive is what gets his clients excited and into the groove of the loan process. Carter coined this formula as the “client-guarantee.” It’s the promise to be loyal and knowledgeable from start to finish, no matter the circumstance. Working one on one with a local, experienced loan officer backed by knowledgeable staff handling your loan from start to finish is so important. In-house processing and underwriting allows Carter to better serve clients and help make the process as smooth as possible. Carter looks forward to giving each and every one of his clients the best experience in the purchase of their new home!
