No risk reservation
It is the intention to run the Surrey Property Awards on 26th November, but we will only do so if Government advice and that of G Live permits us to do so. We have had several conversations with the Directors at G Live and should there still be an element of social distancing required come November, we can implement a slightly different format, in order that we can still deliver the event and keep guests and staff safe.
Should the event need to be cancelled due to Covid-19, refunds will be given to companies that have booked and paid for tables/places, so there is no risk with making a reservation.
2020 SURREY PROPERTY AWARDS CATEGORIES
In the interests of widening the Surrey Property Awards and ensuring it is more inclusive there is a new award category for 2020: Best Stand Alone Property. And, sharing the podium for the first time, this year there will be an award for both the male and female Property Professional of the Year.
Two of the categories this year - Best Interior Design Project and Best Stand-Alone Property - require written submissions, with an entry deadline of Friday 9th October. Please see category details below to enter.
All other categories may be voted for by both public and industry via the voting button above and voting for these categories will close on Friday 6th November.

JUDGED AND PRESENTED BY THE REGIONAL DIRECTOR OF THE SOCIETY FOR BRITISH AND INTERNATIONAL DESIGN (SBID)
This category is not open for on-line voting and will require a written submission supported by excellent photography and/or video. It seeks to identify a project where imagination, design flair, creativity, excellent use of materials, lighting and interesting features and furnishings have been used to create spaces that both welcome, wow and simply ooze style. In order that entrants compete fairly, the project budget will be taken into consideration: up to £50k and over £50k. The entry form is available to download by clicking here.

NEW FOR 2020 - Best stand alone property (New build, conversion or renovation)
This category is not open for on-line voting and will require a written submission supported by photography and/or video.

New for 2020, this category seeks to identify a single property that offers a uniquely attractive perspective and really stands out from the rest. The property should have been designed/modelled to suit its plot and location and should reflect the importance of both exterior and interior excellence, materials and features, regardless of budget. The entry form is available to download by clicking here and the deadline for submissions is Friday 9th October.
Best new homes development
- under 12 units & Best new homes development - 13+ units
This award strives to identify Surrey’s best new homes developments, where exceptional design forethought and sustainable features have future-proofed the developments for generations to come. Voters are urged to consider the architectural integrity, the materials used and the landscape design that have enabled the development to blend harmoniously with its surroundings, and the ability of the architect and developer to work with planners to successfully integrate all types of housing and ensure cohesion. This category will have wide purchaser appeal and developments will most likely include an element of social housing.
Best new apartment scheme
- including retirement
This category is open for all types and styles of apartment projects, including retirement developments, which contribute to a large part of Surrey’s landscape. It looks to identify the development that not only suits its location, but also makes a positive visual impact through its architecture, the use of materials, landscaping and eco features, in addition to providing purchasers with living areas that harness creative space-saving features. The development should have been designed to suit the purchaser profile and include relevant features such as: parking/electric car charging points, lift, communal facilities e.g. pool, lounge, gardens and concierge services if appropriate.
Property law firm of the year
Law firms with a strong bias towards property very often work without acknowledgment, largely due to client confidentiality and the sensitivity surrounding acquisition and certain projects. This category aims to recognise a law firm for its service, client relationships and professional integrity.
Best commercial agency / Chartered surveying company
This award looks to identity a business that has demonstrated not just good practice through the sale/letting of commercial/retail property, but has also forged excellent partnerships with other related professionals to enable commercial schemes of all types to culminate in successful deals.In this category it is anticipated that industry professionals, landlords and investors will be casting votes.
Estate / Letting agency branch of the year
This category is designed so that all agents - whether they are single or multi branch - can compete fairly. If you have sold, purchased, let or rented a property, or concluded a land purchase or sale through an agent in the period January 2019 – June 2020, you are entitled to vote for the branch office of the agent that dealt with your transaction, if you feel the service you have received across all the elements justifies recognition. Please note you are voting for the brand and branch office as one item.
Property professional of the year
This is the most fiercely contested award every year. Therefore, NEW FOR 2020, this category has been split, to acknowledge both a female and male property professional. You can nominate an individual - from the most junior to the most senior and anyone in between! The award seeks to recognise two people who have not only delivered a service that is ‘par excellence’, but who you think has gone above and beyond the call of their remit to help you complete a property transaction of any type or value. Nominations are invited from both the public and the industry in order that the award goes to two truly deserving individuals who have maintained the utmost professional standards. Please enter a name when prompted and ideally provide a reason why you are voting for the person.
The Surrey Property Awards is the largest and most prestigious event of its kind outside London.
In 2019 the glitz, glamour and excitement of the evening was most certainly added to with the magic of Darius Ziatabari, the sensational quick wit, charm and charisma of celebrity guest speaker Gyles Brandreth and co-host Sarah Gobran. 2020 will see an almost repeat performance, with the fabulous trio once again joining Surrey’s top property professionals, and the Mayor of Guildford for a spectacular night of glitz and glamour.
