Here are the winners of the fabulous fundraising Yorkshire Residential Real Estate Awards

The winners of The Yorkshires. Residential Real Estate Awards 2023 were announced this week at an event that has an important dual purpose.Along with celebrating the residential property industry in God’s Own County, including its best people and projects, the awards night at the New Dock Hall in Leeds also raised money for the Yorkshire Children’s Charity, which helps disabled and disadvantaged children in our region.

“The judges were delighted to see so many submissions for this year’s awards and were really impressed by the quality of them. They reflect the high calibre of both talent and innovation in the industry right now,” says Claire Brook, Partner and Head of Real Estate at Womble Bond Dickinson, who helped judge the submissions.

Charlotte Farrington, CEO of the Yorkshire Children’s Charity, which organises the awards, adds: “Yorkshire is the third worst region in the UK for child poverty, and the cost-of-living crisis is only making things even more difficult for families in our area.
