Castle & Cooke Mortgage LLC, with 38 locations nationwide, has announced its newest branch in Columbia, Conn. an eastern suburb of Hartford. The new branch marks the company's expansion into the Connecticut market and will offer a full range of mortgage products, fast home loans and exceptional service that have become Castle & Cooke Mortgage's trademark.

Regional Manager Jeffrey Heidtmann, a 32-year mortgage industry veteran, will manage the new office in Columbia. During his career, Heidtmann has helped more than 3,000 families turn their dreams of home ownership into reality. Prior to joining Castle & Cooke Mortgage, he worked as a branch manager for Norcom Mortgage.

"I came to Castle & Cooke Mortgage to join a company with the same vision as I have for conducting business—prioritizing customer service," Heidtman said. "Ultimately, our job as mortgage professionals is to help people realize their dreams of homeownership and to make it a reality, and I love it. It's very rewarding."

Heidtmann will focus on expanding Castle & Cooke Mortgage's lending footprint in Connecticut with plans to open three new offices by the end of 2016. He will leverage his expert knowledge of first-time homebuyers, refinances and purchase loans, as well as investor, construction and rehabilitation and government programs to serve Connecticut residents.

"With its diverse housing market, Connecticut is the perfect location for Castle & Cooke Mortgage. Homeowners and buyers in the state can benefit from our vast variety of loan products, flexibility and reliability," said Adam Thorpe, president and chief operating officer of Castle & Cooke Mortgage. "As a Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac seller and servicer and a Ginnie Mae issuer, we offer an impressive selection of conventional and government programs designed to meet the individual needs of our clients."
