Company exceeds 2017 branch growth goal in just six months
Salt Lake City, UT – July 26, 2017 – Castle & Cooke Mortgage, LLC®, one of the nation’s leading independent mortgage lenders with locations across the U.S., has added 14 branches across the nation in 2017, representing a 33 percent growth rate from the end of 2016. The company not only exceeded its original expectation of opening 12 branches this year but did so in half the anticipated time, and has plans to open several more offices in the coming months.
“The level of growth Castle & Cooke Mortgage has experienced this year is a true testament not only to the hard work and dedication of our staff, but also to the commitment we have to creating the kind of company people want to work for,” said Adam Thorpe, president and chief operating officer of Castle & Cooke Mortgage. “As our company expands, my goal is to maintain a workplace model where our employees feel heard, valued and supported. Some of our best ideas come from those who have their ears closest to the ground, and as long as we keep listening to our employees and providing them with the tools they need to be successful, I am confident we will continue to grow.”
While Castle & Cooke Mortgage is licensed in 32 states, much of the 2017 growth has happened in the Mid-South region, particularly in Tennessee, which experienced the highest number of new branch openings this year. The state now boasts locations in Brentwood (NMLS #1091448), Chattanooga (NMLS #1597515), Clarksville (NMLS #1202068), Hendersonville (NMLS #1597518), Indian Lake (NMLS #1630068), Memphis (NMLS #1630067), Murfreesboro (NMLS #1636358) and Nashville (NMLS #1091448). New branches have also been added in Mississippi and Missouri, as well as in California, Hawaii and Nevada.
The company’s recent surge is reflective of Castle & Cooke Mortgage’s emphasis on recruiting. “A company can only be as good as the people who work for it, and I couldn’t be happier with the caliber of employees we’ve hired this year,” stated Mike Querrey, national sales manager for Castle & Cooke Mortgage. “Our standard of excellence is continually raised as we focus on recruiting talented, experienced and motivated staff, both for our corporate office as well as our branch locations throughout the nation. Our most valuable assets are the members of our Castle & Cooke Mortgage family.”
