Castle & Cooke Mortgage Branch Managers Carrie Ramirez (San Antonio, Texas) and Jennifer Gokool (Peoria, Arizona) are nominated as HousingWire’s 2015 Women of Influence.
The award honors high-achieving women across the U.S. housing economy – from residential mortgage lending, servicing and investments to residential real estate. The Women of Influence honors are given to individuals who are making notable contributions to both their businesses and to the industry at-large – with a specific focus on contributions made in the most recent 12 months. The winners will be announced in HousingWire’s upcoming August issue.
Carrie has a passion for helping others achieve their dreams of home ownership. This drive and ambition shows through in her ability to provide exceptional customer service, close loans quickly and in her commitment to educate her staff.
She is consistently one of Castle & Cooke Mortgage’s top performers. In 2014, she was selected once again for the Chairman’s Club Award for the fourth consecutive year. The award recognizes Castle & Cooke Mortgage employees who have advanced the company through extraordinary efforts. She is also involved with the Texas Mortgage Bankers Association, which is aimed at bettering the mortgage industry for both clients and mortgage loan originators.
Jennifer is also the recipient of the Chairman’s Club Award, as well as an Affiliate Lender for Homes for Heroes, a program created after the tragic events of 9/11 as a “Thank you” to the men and women who serve our country. As an Affiliate Lender, Jennifer provides a lender credit up to $1,000 toward closing costs. The program is personally rewarding to Jennifer, as she feels honored to work with these heroes who have sacrificed and dedicated their lives making our world a better place.
Additionally, she assists in the Homes for Heroes Foundation’s charity and is involved in several community organizations, including the local Chamber of Commerce. Jennifer also serves as a resource officer for other mortgage loan originators who need assistance in structuring their loans.
