At this year’s Property Awards we will unveil our brand-new Hall of Fame, sponsored by James Andrew International.

Property Awards 2016

James Andrew International

The idea is to celebrate the current legends of property; the people whose names will remain in the industry’s collective memory long after they are gone.

To help get the synapses sparking, we’re looking to the past and the legends of old. Over the following three pages, we acknowledge some of the late greats who redefined entrepreneurialism and transformed the UK property industry into what it is today.

The question you need to ask yourselves is: who can live up to their legacy? You can send us the names of the legends you would like to see inducted into the Hall of Fame here. In the meantime, read on via the links below and be inspired.
