Judging of The Negotiator Awards

The Negotiator Awards is the most respected and prestigious property awards for good reason. The Awards are judged by leaders and experts in the residential property industry, selected for their reputation and knowledge.

Our judging process is the most robust, open and transparent process of any property awards. The judges are given the entries well in advance of the final day, to read, analyse, make enquiries and test the entries.

On the final judging day, all the judges gather at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, London to review the entries, compare notes, debate and decide the finalists and winners.
