Mortgage Master, a Massachusetts-based mortgage bank, said it plans to expand its current La Jolla office.

The firm said it now has six loan officers at the local office including recently hired Brian Wada, who spent the majority of his career at JP Morgan Chase but was most recently with OnQ Financial.

Ito Rodi, recently named branch manager of the La Jolla office, said he is leading the drive to recruit new loan officers and increase mortgage originations in the county.
