VISALIA, Calif., June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bank of Commerce Mortgage (BOCM), one of the leading independent mortgage banks in the West, today announced that it has launched a new branch in Visalia. Under the direction of branch manager, Sandy Wheeler, a 28-year industry veteran, the new Visalia branch will offer the expertise of a seasoned loan origination team that has been working together for many years to provide personalized mortgage financing options and service to local borrowers.

The Visalia office joins five other new locations in Danville, Modesto, Merced, Stockton and Santa Ana, increasing the number of Bank of Commerce Mortgage branches to 18.

The Visalia team includes loan officers Leticia Gonzalez, Darice Viera and Anne Brown as well as underwriters Doug Maddoz and Stacie Gray, loan processor Kerri Bethel, sales coordinator Cindy Rodriguez and operations manager Jenny Somera.

"From relocation to debt solutions, we are committed to serving our community and taking care of our clients," said Sandy Wheeler, branch manager for Bank of Commerce Mortgage, Visalia. "Generations of families have turned to us for years to help them address their home purchase, refinance and overall personal finance needs with smart strategies that they can trust. Bank of Commerce Mortgage offers the resources and support that will allow us to continue delivering personalized loan options and the level of service that our clients have come to expect."

"We are pleased to extend a warm welcome to Sandy Wheeler and her team," said Scott Simonich, president and CEO for Bank of Commerce Mortgage.
