    The Illinois Mortgage Bankers’ Association has bestowed its prestigious “Best Title Insurance Account Representation” award to Naperville’s Anthony Latham, Owner/President of National Title Solutions at the 2014 Best In Business Awards gala last week. At the October 2 event, hosted at the Hyatt Lodge in Oak Brook, three of National Title Solutions’ Naperville team were nominated for 2014 awards: NTS Business Development Officer Carol McCarthy, and NTS Account Executive Lisa Rinando for “Best Title Insurance Account Representation,” Rinando for “Best Title Insurance Company Closer,” and Latham for “Best Title Insurance Account Representation” and top honor “Star Leadership Award,” for his exemplification of “the highest standards of service, ethics, and dedication to the mortgage industry… outstanding leadership and business innovation,” among other notable achievements, according to IMBA.org. Latham’s 7 years in business with National Title Solutions have provided the foundation for excellence in the industry that facilitate his success and esteem within the business and customer base. “National Title Solutions is one fo the few consumer-driven title insurance companies -- we’re focused on consumers and their edification with regard to their title insurance options,” explains Latham. “We’re a one-stop shop -- we hold all licenses here, so we don’t farm projects out to other states, which means we’re hands-on and all of our work is done locally, so we can give customers a better deal and work to fulfill their precise needs when they’re buying, selling, or refinancing.” As noted on IMBA’s Facebook page and website (imba.org), the Illinois Mortgage Bankers Association (IMBA) is a not-for-profit trade association comprised of approximately 165 companies and institutions whose business interests revolve around residential and/or commercial mortgage lending. IMBA (pledges) commitment to promote and safeguard the best interests and welfare of the membership and the public it serves. Latham was also nominated for IMBA’s “Best Title Insurance Account Representative” at the 2013 Best In Business Awards, and he hopes to continue the awards & recognition trend into next year. Appreciation, consistency, and continued customer-focus are the order of the day for National Title Solutions, “…especially when we’re kind of the new kid on the block,” says Latham, noting that he brought NTS to Naperville from Florida in 2010. National Title Solutions is headquartered in Woodridge with multiple satellite locations in Naperville; find them at www.ntsnational.com or call (800)NTS-2700. “Most consumers don’t know that they have the right to choose their title insurance company when they’re buying or refinancing,” notes Latham; “Our motto is ‘Exceptional Service is Standard,’ and that says it all.”
