"It was no secret that the transition from 2017 to 2018 was going to be challenging for everyone in the mortgage industry, given the forecast of significant interest rate increases,” said Danny Byrnes, vice president of sales and marketing. “Our team embraced the challenge and while other companies contracted in both their numbers and employees, NTC continued to expand, out-performing the expected forecast. I am extremely honored to have NTC secure spots as finalists for the National Sales Team of the Year, Woman of the Year in Sales for our Vice President of National Sales, Debbie Lastoria, and an unexpected spot for myself as Senior Sales Executive of the year."
