Expanding Presence in Washington State to Three Branches

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - January 07, 2016) - Castle & Cooke Mortgage, LLC®, one of the nation's leading independent mortgage lenders with 43 locations across the United States, is rapidly expanding its Washington presence with a second branch in Mountlake Terrace, a northern suburb of Seattle.
