The PROPS Awards is a standout event in the UK’s property industry’s calendar, recognising and celebrating individuals and companies who have excelled in the sector, whilst raising vital funds for the children and young people that Variety support.

Awards will be up for grabs in 15 categories, in addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award which has this year been awarded to founders of Topland Group (one of the UK’s largest privately owned investment groups), Sol, and Eddie Zakay – and they will be honoured at the PROPS Awards Lunch in June.

Amongst the awards up for grabs is the hotly contested Developer of the Year whereby the judges are looking for companies that have developed groundbreaking initiatives that embodied a well-defined strategic approach and visionary outlook. The companies who manage to stand out in the UK’s crowded residential and commercial sector will also be celebrated with awards ‘Residential Agent of the Year’ and ‘Commercial Agent of the Year’.

Individual awards for some of the most influential individuals in the property space are also on offer – Entrepreneur of the Year recognises individuals who have ‘done it their way’ by founding and running their own company, achieving significant results in the property sector. And Young Property Person of the Year celebrates the ‘individuals to watch’, the next generation of extraordinary property professionals.  

It promises to be an exciting evening, celebrating some of the best in the sector. The full shortlist can be found in the Notes to Editors.

Since 1992, the Awards have raised over £11 million for Variety, the Children’s Charity. These vital donations ensure Variety can continue to provide practical support to disabled and disadvantaged children through providing wheelchairs, specialist equipment, their fully accessible Sunshine Coaches to SEND schools, and experiences on their Great Days Out.

This year’s winners will be announced at the PROPS Awards Lunch taking place from 11:45 am on Thursday 27 June, at JW Marriott Grosvenor House, London, W1K 7TN.

Chair of The PROPS, Candice Sammeroff says:

We are thrilled to announce our impressive list of finalists for the 32nd PROPS Awards in June. There has been some incredible achievements from both companies and individuals in the property sector over the last year, and we’re excited to recognise and celebrate this work whilst raising vital funds to support disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK.
