​National mortgage media group HousingWire announced its 2019 Rising Stars, an exclusive list of young leaders to watch in the housing industry.  CMG Financial’s VP, Correspondent Operations, Joe Cabrall, was recognized among 50 other industry-leading innovators as a 2019 Rising Star. 

“The Rising Stars represent the best young leaders in the mortgage industry,” said Kelsey Ramirez, Associate Editor of HousingWire.  “Their impressive list of accomplishments make these young professionals the leaders of their industries, and their future is bright.  I can’t wait to see what they accomplish next.”

Joe Cabrall started in the mortgage industry the summer before his senior year of high school and has held multiple positions in every origination channel.  He was instrumental in building out CMG’s correspondent division and helped it become a service-driven, well-organized, efficient channel.  Today, correspondent owners and heads of capital firms call Joe their “go-to guy” because they know he has the experience and skills to find a creative solution. 

“This year’s group of Rising Stars represents a rising generation of strong, innovative and motivated leaders taking the mortgage industry by storm.  Each of these individuals has accomplished a great deal, but we believe they are still at the early stages of their ultimate impact on the housing economy,” said Clayton Collins, CEO of HousingWire. 

In 2017, Joe cofounded CMG Securities, LLC with AJ George, where he is the Executive Director.  Joe continues to evolve as a mortgage professional, finding new ways to serve his clients and improve the greater mortgage market.  At the end of the day, the mortgage industry is a relationship business and Joe’s commitment to service has enabled him to build lasting relationships with leaders and partners throughout the country. 

Rising Star Criteria:

  • 50 winners
  • 6th annual list
  • Every sector of the housing economy represented: residential mortgage lending, servicing, investing and real estate, as well as those in advocacy positions, including nonprofits and governmental agencies.
  • Chosen by HousingWire editorial staff based on tangible accomplishments in the last 12 months
