Manuel corral has a great team. We are very happy with the team. The process started with a bunch of questions they happily answers. They make you feel like family. They took time to explain the process. Each member of their team has their task during the process. It was cool to get the group emails while they worked on my file. It made us feel special and that things were getting done. During the whole process everyone kept good communication with us through phone calls and emails. Keep up the great work. We recommend to friends and family, as well as the community.

We are first-time home buyers and everyone told us how scary and nerve-racking it was for them. Not with the Corral Team! Any time we had any questions or concerns, they were there to put our minds at ease. Everyone was always very professional, friendly, attentive and approachable. If you're a first-time home buyer, I would totally recommend working with them!

My husband and I recently purchased our first home thought Golden Empire Mortgage. Manuel was the lender we worked with at GEM. All of the representatives at GEM have been extremely helpful and professional throughout all steps of the home buying process. They were always very clear with us where in the process we were and how we would move to the next time. GEM was also in constant communication with our agent regarding any help they could offer. We will definitely do business with them again and look forward to many happy years in our new home! Thank you GEM!

Consistently we have been able to be a top loan closing branch excelling with both A-paper transactions as well as difficult to close deals. GEM’s people are the best, allowing us for o easily recruit and maintain a top team of lending and support staff, keeping us on the cutting edge of product, technology and service.

I have been in the mortgage industry since 1979 and have consistently been at the top of mortgage originators across the country. One of the things that is required to maintain lending excellence is the company that I work for. Golden Empire Mortgage has been the foundation of my lending business for over 20 years.

GEM has the management team, marketing and technical support, and people that have allowed me to build a team that shines above all others. Without the backbone of a company like GEM I would not have been able to achieve multiple years of recognition from national mortgage associations of all kinds.

GEM has allowed me to excel to the top of my game closing over 5000 loans for over $1 Billion Dollars in lending volume. GEM has been, is, and will always be my home. If you are looking for a company to hang your license that will allow you to build a lending empire look no further. And as a consumer turn to GEM for all of your lending needs.

GEM is the BEST mortgage company on the planet! I chose Golden Empire Mortgage because it is a company that is competitive, caring, technological and innovative. GEM is a company that always has its heart in the right place to help the loan officer provide the best mortgage experience for its clients and customers! In our industry, it is not uncommon for loan officers to switch companies to try and better themselves! Although many mortgage professionals choose to move from company to company, I will always maintain deep roots at GEM. GEM is my family!
