Last night’s Yorkshires. Residential Real Estate Awards took place in a glittering ceremony at New Dock Hall, Leeds.

While guests celebrated incredible achievement in the region’s property sector, the awards also highlighted the challenges that families in Yorkshire face this winter. With one in three children in our region living in poverty, it’s never been more vital that we come together to make a difference. We’d like to thank everyone who gave so generously – your support means the world. 

Now, onto the winners! We had some truly excellent submissions this year which made the judging process particularly difficult:

“The judges were delighted to see so many submissions for this year’s awards and really impressed by the quality of them, reflecting the high calibre of both talent and innovation in the industry right now. It was a difficult task choosing the winners from such a strong pool, and so those shortlisted should be very proud too” – Claire Brook, Womble Bond Dickinson, Chair of Judging Panel.
