Here’s the news that the entire Americas has been waiting for – positive proof that its property industry is not simply surviving – it is thriving! This year, the Americas submitted a wide range of impressive entries from 29 different countries for the International Property Awards in association with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Yamaha. New countries competing for these prestigious accolades include Serbia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.
The hotly contested competition culminated in leading developers, real estate agents, architects and interior designers from across the length and breadth of the Americas gathering at the J W Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London on Friday (December 7th) for the announcement of the winners.
These awards, combined with the other regional awards’ programmes for Arabia, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific, form the globally renowned International Property Awards. Established 18 years ago, they are the world’s most prestigious property competition and cover residential as well as commercial categories. Judging is carried out through a meticulous process involving a panel of over 80 experts covering every aspect of the property business.
President of the International Property Awards, Stuart Shield, says, “It was a privilege to meet so many of the Americas’ most talented property professionals. Attention to the finest detail, first rate green credentials and a willingness to succeed against a hugely competitive field resulted in the very best property companies being rewarded with the recognition they deserve. I wish them every success in the future.”
