NEW FOR 2021 - Best stand alone property (new build, conversion or renovation)

JUDGED AND PRESENTED BY JAMES DEVERILL, CHAIR, RIBA SURREY

 

This category is not open for on-line voting and requires a written submission supported by photography and/or video. From the small perfectly crafted bijoux residence to the most luxurious mansion house, this category seeks to identify a single home (which could form part of a larger development) that really stands out. The property will have been designed/modelled to suit its plot size and should reflect 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 8th October.

Best boutique development

ONLINE VOTING


As the title suggests this category seeks to find a smaller, but perfectly formed development offering new homes of any size or style, in the towns or villages of leafy Surrey.  A collaboration between the developer and architect will have harnessed exceptional design features and materials, creative landscaping and a good site layout that makes excellent use of the acreage.

Best new homes development

- 20 units+

ON-LINE VOTING

This award strives to identify Surrey’s best large new homes development, where exceptional design and sustainable features have future-proofed the development for generations to come.  Voters are asked to consider the architecture, materials used and the landscaping that have enabled the development to blend with its surroundings. The ability of the architect and developer to work with planners to successfully integrate all types of housing (eg. houses and apartments) to ensure cohesion is also important. 

Best new apartment scheme

- including retirement

ON-LINE VOTING

 

This category is open to 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 and landscaping.  The development should have been designed to suit the purchaser profile and include relevant features such as: parking/electric car charging points, lift, creative and space-saving elements and communal facilities e.g. pool, lounge or gardens, and concierge services if appropriate.

Property law firm of the year

ON-LINE VOTING

Law firms with a strong bias towards property very often work without acknowledgment, largely due to client confidentiality and the sensitivity surrounding acquisition, location and project type.  By voting in this category you will be recognising a law firm that you believe has demonstrated the highest standards, excellent client engagement and maintained professional integrity at all times. The law firms listed all have at least one office in Surrey.

Best commercial agency / Chartered surveying company

ON-LINE VOTING

This award looks to identify 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

ON-LINE VOTING


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 through an agent you are entitled to vote for the branch office of the agent that dealt with your transaction, if you feel the service you received justifies recognition.  Please note you are voting for the brand and branch office as one item.

Property professional of the year


ON-LINE NOMINATIONS

 

This is the most fiercely contested award every year. Therefore, NEW FOR 2021, 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 believe has gone above and beyond the call of their remit. Nominations are invited and when prompted you will be asked to enter a name and company and provide a reason why you are nominating that person.
