Castle & Cooke Mortgage LLC has announced the opening of a new branch in Clarinda, Iowa

Castle & Cooke Mortgage LLC has announced the opening of a new branch in Clarinda, Iowa, the company's seventh new branch of the year that comes less than a month after the opening of the company's Nashville, Tenn. branch, keeping it on track to reach its goal of adding 15 new branches across the country in 2016.

Leading the new Clarinda office is Branch Manager Dave Sunderman (NMLS# 7176). His nearly 40 years of experience in banking, working specifically with mortgages since 1999, has enabled him to develop a thorough knowledge of loan products and an ability to communicate well with his clients.

"Buying a home is a big and exciting change in my clients' lives," said Sunderman. "Eliminating as much of the stress as possible is essential to making everything go smoothly and hopefully generating new referrals." He knows that the competitive interest rates and fast turn times that attracted him to Castle & Cooke Mortgage will further solidify his clients' satisfaction with their mortgage experience."

"Our company has experienced near record-breaking production levels in the months leading up to the busy home buying season," said Castle & Cooke President and COO Adam Thorpe. "I fully expect that trend to continue and I am happy that we are able to bring that momentum to the Clarinda market. I am confident in Dave's ability to contribute to our continued growth while being attentive to the needs of homebuyers in Iowa."
