Judges of this year’s awards include Elaine Cunningham, owner of Elaine Cunningham Design Studio; Alastair Shepherd, director of Falconer Chester Hall; and Lesley Martin-Wright, CEO of Knowsley Chamber.

There will also be categories celebrating a year of success in the commercial property sector, including ‘Best Commercial Scheme’.

A number of further awards categories have no shortlist with winners set to be announced on the evening, including ‘Best Property Law Firm’, ‘Residential Property Agency of the Year’, ‘Judges’ Special Award’, ‘Interactive Award’ and ‘Best Commercial Let’.
