WORDS FROM THE JUDGES
Daryl Norkett – Head of Real Estate Proposition – Shawbrook Bank: “It’s been a privilege to serve as one of the judges for the past 6 years of the Property Investor Awards – it’s such an invaluable experience for me to see some of the most creative examples of success within the property industry which are so often at the cutting edge of what is happening in our market. The calibre and quality of nominees continues to improve year on year and the lively debates at the judging days demonstrate just how hard it can be to pick a winner. Winning one of the awards is a true badge of honour for all property professionals.”
Richard Valentine-Selsey – Head of European Living Research & Consultancy – Savills: “The Property Investor Awards provide a rigorous and independent platform to highlight the strength of your business. At the same time lifting the professionalism and integrity of the industry, ensuring that all involved can be proud of the awards that they have achieved.”
Jason Ellis – Director – Horner Blakey Insurance Brokers: “The forum of the Property Awards recognises the achievements of full time investors, institutional investors and gives those companies and individuals starting their investment or development journey something to aspire to with the added benefit of bringing likeminded people and businesses together who form part of the Real Estate and Property Industry sector. As a judge I feel the Property sector comes under scrutiny from a regulatory perspective making processes, procedures and professionalism more important, I spare my time each year as a judge in the hope I can share my industry knowledge and help clients think of things that might not ordinarily be on their agenda so they are in the best possible position to run their business/investments.”
Helen Chorley – Angel Property Investor and Judge at the Property Investors Awards: “In an industry that often gets bad press it’s even more important to recognise those who are striving to improve standards and who are producing quality homes for so many people. That’s why I enjoy being on the judging panel for the Property Investor Awards so much, the chance to recognise those making a positive difference for the sector and society by their actions.”
Greg Davison – Portfolio Manager – Floreat “The Property Investors Awards provides an opportunity for excellent design and development to be recognised by a panel of industry experts. It is a privilege to volunteer my time to help assess entries and vote towards the awards.”
Founder and Chairman of the Awards, Cyril Thomas: “This year marked our 10-year anniversary and was our largest and most inspiring event to date. Witnessing property investors adjust and thrive during these tough economic times encourages others to be better. I was particularly impressed with the amount of property investors who prioritised making their property investments energy efficient and sustainable. As always, I’d like to thank all of our partners, judges, and sponsors for helping to make this year’s awards such an outstanding success and we look forward to celebrating with you all again at the Property Investors Awards 2023.
