Glamour, glitz, wine and winners

The OPP Gala Dinner, and the accompanying OPP Awards for Excellence ceremony, took place last night – leading to some fantastic memories, some shock announcements and more than a few muddled heads this morning!

The dinner itself was a formal and lavish affair, as always, and was followed by the presentation of the OPP Awards for Excellence 2014.

But first came the announcement from our Editorial Director, John Howell, that this year’s show would be his last with OPP, as he would be moving on to pastures new at the end of this week. After that, an unexpected award was presented by Farook Mahmood, CEO of Silverline Realty Group. He took the stage and presented John with a trophy for Services to the International Real Estate Industry.

Then came the main awards.

This year there were 30 categories of award – the best developer in each region, the best agent in each region, several awards for specialist agents and developers an awards for various ancillary services. There were two new categories: the best example of customer service and the best example of agent support.

The presentation caused quite a few raised eyebrows as several winners emerged who had previously been almost unknown in the industry.

This is one of the fascinating features of a global and very dynamic sector. Innovation can start anywhere and catch the big players unawares. The OPP Awards for Excellence are designed to reflect the very best in our industry, so the judging process is completely independent.

After the ceremony, guests refreshed their glasses and put on their dancing shoes for the Beatlez. CEOs and MDs of several companies were spotted swaying along to ‘Hey Jude’ at the end of the night. OPP Connect is sad to report that nobody is owning up to having any photographs of this phenomenon.

The winners of the OPP Awards for Excellence 2014 were:
