The finalists for this year's Belfast Telegraph Property Awards in partnership with Electric Ireland can now be announced.

The challenging task of selecting the top entries from each category fell to our esteemed panel of judges who represent a wide cross-section of expertise across the property sector.

Chair of the judging panel Professor Alastair Adair, deputy vice-chancellor, Ulster University summed up just how hot this year's contest has been: "The Belfast Telegraph Property Awards 2019 in partnership with Electric Ireland is again characterised by the high quality and number of nominations demonstrating the highly competitive nature of the competition and the desire to win these prestigious awards," he said.

"We are delighted to see evidence of emergent talent across the categories where innovative staff are raising standards of service and design that the public increasingly demands".

This year we had a record number of entries, each demonstrating excellence in their field.

We look forward to showcasing all of the outstanding achievements and announcing the winners at our glittering awards event on November 15 in the Crowne Plaza hotel in Belfast.
