Mortgage Banker Manuel Corral co-authored the new release, “Mortgage Storm, Making It Rain by Mastering Your Craft,” with fifteen other top mortgage producers and coaches across the United States. The book reached and remained at Number 1 for the Mortgage Category on Amazon all throughout the week of November 21.

Mortgage origination can be one of the most rewarding careers among the entire real estate industry and even among all sales fields. Income is generally commission-based and the earning potential is only limited by individual performance. The challenge is that there is not much in the way of formal training available to learn how to master the business. In “Mortgage Storm,” Corral and fifteen other top producers and mortgage coaches provide million dollar insights and tips to success in this business. The authors provide a “peek behind the curtain” to see how they have built their businesses and have generated over $20 billion combined in residential mortgage originations.

Corral commented on a point he made in the book, “Mortgage originators need to become lifelong learners in this business and need to not only work in their business, but also to work on their business, making it better each year.” He continued, “Whether it be setting up new systems, figuring out better ways to market, or thinking through how to get more referral partners, it’s important to be improving everything you do and honing your skills every year to keep advancing and growing.”

In his chapter, Corral shares and explains several key factors for success in the mortgage industry, including:

  • Having a positive mindset
  • Benefits of working with an experienced mentor
  • Mastering the lending guidelines
  • Building a base of referral partners
  • Developing a specialty focus and mastering it
  • Maintaining contact with clients after the closing
  • Building a team to leverage total volume
  • Developing and maintaining an impeccable reputation

“Mortgage Storm, Making It Rain by Mastering Your Craft,” is available on in a Kindle version at The paperback version will be released soon.
