KAPAA, Hawaii — Feb. 28, 2018 Castle & Cooke Mortgage, LLC®, one of the nation’s leading independent mortgage lenders with locations across the United States, continues its nationwide expansion with the opening of its first office on the island of Kauai. The new branch (NMLS #1263589) is led by island local and Branch Manager, John Dispirito (NMLS #228380). The location’s grand opening event, held earlier this week, was marked by a traditional Hawaiian blessing performed by Kahu Jade Waialeale-Battad.

“John’s extensive regional mortgage experience and connection to the community provide the Garden Island with an experience that is tailored to the needs of Hawaii’s homebuyers,” said Ray Beltran (NMLS #894711), area manager for Castle & Cooke Mortgage.

Prior to joining Castle & Cooke Mortgage, Dispirito was the Western region vice president for The Money Store and a branch manager for FirstCal Mortgage. With a mortgage career spanning 36 years, he has held positions from loan officer to vice president of sales and operations. Throughout that time, Dispirito has developed a thorough understanding of the industry and an appreciation for high quality customer service, which not only helps him in his new management role with Castle & Cooke Mortgage but also benefits his clients as he guides them through the mortgage process.

“I have lived in Kauai for 13 years, and in that time, I have come to embrace this island as my home,” said Dispirito. “With very few licensed loan officers locally available, I hope my team and I can provide a much-needed service to the people of Kauai, while sharing the aloha spirit that defines who we are and runs deep in the Castle & Cooke roots.”

Dispirito can be reached at or at the Castle & Cooke Mortgage Kauai branch at 4-484 Kuhio Highway, Suite 116, Kapaa, HI 96746.
