Notably again this year, the surge in female applicants has been a beacon of progress, highlighting the increasing diversity and dynamism within the industry. As a proud judge and honoured host of this prestigious event, I am delighted to witness the remarkable achievements of all the applicants and nominees across so many categories. The commitment to recognizing excellence, coupled with the rising participation of women in this space, underlines the Awards’ commitment to inclusivity and innovation. I am thrilled to be a part of this process each year and the awards evening acknowledging the outstanding contributions to the world of property investment from new comers and old hands alike.”

Helen Chorley, Mike Bristow, and Rory O'Mara

Rory O Mara – CEO & Founder – Closed Bridging Finance: “ were thrilled to serve as judges for the Property Investors Awards and were deeply impressed by the ingenuity and dedication of the UK’s property investment community. The breadth of innovative strategies and the commitment to excellence were truly inspiring. Throughout the judging process, we were particularly impressed by the use of creative financing solutions and the focus on sustainable development practices. These elements demonstrated the forward-thinking approach of the industry’s leading players. We extend our congratulations to the award winners. We are proud to have been part of a celebration that recognises and honours the exceptional achievements of the UK’s property investment sector.”

Jay Howard – Hammered: “The experience of being a judge from start to finish is a bit of a rollercoaster ride. It starts by not knowing the quanta of the quality of the applications and the applicants themselves. Then you review and judge the applications and some of the very intelligently structured deals and projects really do stick in your mind. Then comes the awards dinner, and you find yourself in the same position as the finalists, you have no idea who the winner is. I find myself learning so much from the applications, and really enjoying the awards celebration.”

Karl Griggs – CPC Finance: “It was good to see the work done behind the scenes throughout the year come to fruition and be involved in the judging days to see so many great applications. The event at the end of the year highlights the quality of all the participants and level of expertise required to be a winner. The winners have earned the right to include the award on their marketing and advertising going forward.”

Jason Ellis – Horner Blakey: On Judging day it has been amazing to witness and see what some people and businesses have achieved in recent years but more importantly the inspiration it is providing to those who can follow in the footsteps of previous winners or carve out their own path. As we set our sights on 2024 I would encourage people and businesses to submit their applications, ‘you have to be in it, to win it’ you won’t know if you have an award winning application until you submit it. Congratulations to the winners of the 2023 Awards and fingers crossed for a better 2024.
