MT offers brokers the chance to win prizes

The Mortgage Times Group has laun-ched a monthly prize initiative called Payam’s Prizes.

The competition will see one broker each month win a prize when submitting an application to a guest lender.

The prizes up for grabs will change each month, but they could be anything from laptop computers to wide-screen TVs.

The guest lender for June is DB Mortgages and the successful broker this month will win a weekend break for two in Prague.

The package includes a double room in a four-star hotel in the heart of the city. The winner will be announced at the end of the month.

Payam Azadi, head of marketing at Mortgage Times, says: “This is another way to reward our brokers and a great way to introduce our lender partners’ products and services to a wider market.

“Fantastic prizes are available in association with the lenders of the month and we are sure our members will enjoy taking part in this initiative.”
