USDA awards company for contributions in Nebraska

Blair Team with USDA award

Bryce Magill and Blair team with Certificate of Appreciation from USDA

The efforts of Castle & Cooke Mortgage, LLC (NMLS #1251) to increase homeownership in rural Nebraska in 2017 were recognized with the “Two Million Dollar Lenders Club” award. The company received a certificate of appreciation from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for processing more than $2.7 million in loans for 26 families through its Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) Program.

The achievement was the result of a combined effort, driven by the company’s Blair branch (NMLS #274051) and supported by its Scottsbluff branch (NMLS #1337521). When asked what this distinction means to the communities in which they live and work, Blair Branch Manager Bryce Magill (NMLS #38311) stressed the importance of the GRH Program.

“We do much of our business in rural communities and this is a vital program that has helped many people become homeowners,” he said. “It’s an honor to know that so many families trust us with helping them to achieve homeownership.”

Jennifer Urdiales (NMLS # 1059626), Branch Manager in Scottsbluff, echoed Magill’s gratitude and acknowledged the program’s contributions to building better communities. She also credited the company’s support staff for making this accomplishment possible.

“Castle & Cooke Mortgage has an amazing team at our Corporate office and believes in helping our originators achieve top quality service each and every time.” She continued, giving accolades to the many individuals who work on each file, from Loan Coordinators, Processors, and Underwriters, to the Closing and Funding teams. “We would not be able to close a loan if it were not for the outstanding team behind the originators.”
