Randy Clark

Loan Officer

I started my financial career when I was in college, but I was a Realtor when I was recruited into the mortgage industry 36 years ago.  Having lived my entire life in Bloomington-Normal, I am able to share my knowledge of the area and love of our town with people relocating to our community.

I’m excited to come to work each day to meet with new clients and help them achieve the joy of home ownership.  I specialize in Conventional, FHA, VA, new construction, as well as first time home buyer programs and grants.  My favorite part of each transaction is the closing – where I get to see how happy my clients are with the keys to their new home!

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and volunteering for local charities.  I serve on committees at my church and at the local Real Estate Association (MIRA).  My other passion is coaching basketball, a sport that has been a big part of my life since birth.

What made you become a lender?

I had studied Finance and Economics was my degree but at the time I was a Realtor and was recruited into Mortgage Lending 36 years ago. The person that recruited me or my mentor thought I would be good at this and I jumped into this field and have loved doing this and helping people since Day #1.

What made you decide to come to First State Mortgage?

I have worked with Rene’ Shaffer at a previous Bank and we worked well together and got along great and had the same work ethic and the same goal of taking care of the customers and having fun doing this with our co-workers on a daily basis. Have always thought like she does on the ultimate way to go above and beyond on this business and make the home buying process an unforgettable and great experience.

What is your favorite part of the job?

Meeting people and listening to them on how this will work and what they are looking for and what program will help them the most for them and their family. Seeing how excited they are when they walk out of the closing with their keys and new home and are on Cloud nine with the joy of home ownership.
