Marlin Payne

My name is Marlin Payne, I was born and raised in St. George, Utah. As a kid I spent a lot of time outside playing sports and catching crawdads and lizards with friends. I love the outdoors and the heat of Southern Utah. I am still very active playing sports, mountain biking, hiking, and anything else to get the adrenaline going. I recently joined the First Colony Mortgage family as a new loan officer. I graduated from Snow Canyon High School and served an LDS mission in Louisville Kentucky. It was there that I learned to love serving others. I met my wife, Cherish, while attending Dixie State. With a love for numbers, I pursued an accounting degree from Dixie State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s. I then went on to get a Master’s degree from Southern Utah University. I got into the mortgage industry because I love to help others and enjoy crunching numbers, a perfect fit for me.


B.S from Dixie State College

Masters Degree from Southern Utah University

Flawless experience! Talk about someone who really knows how to do their job and help people out in the best ways possible. My wife and I had issues with two other agencies and a credit union while trying to buy a home and it took nearly a year. Marlin was recommended to us by his brother and we gave him a shot and within a few days we found a house and had everything in underwriting and ready to go. Even with a few things coming up during the process he was quick and able to allow everything to continue as needed and we were able to close on the house within 2 weeks. After moving in it didn't stop there, we constantly have gifts left on our doorstep and phone calls and texts asking how everything has been going with the house and our family. A true friend and great businessman. I would recommend him to absolutely anybody.
