The Oxfordshire property world’s finest were recognised in front of more than 300 industry professionals on Tuesday (September 12).

Winners of the 2023 OxPropFest Awards were announced at the black-tie presentation event at Keble College where British former javelin thrower Goldie Sayers was guest speaker.

The sold-out event, hosted by UK Property Forums managing director Matthew Battle, was the first to be held in Oxford since before lockdown.

Mr Battle said: “It was a great evening and really great to be back in Oxford. The feedback has been amazingly positive. The atmosphere on the night reflected both the quality of the submissions and levels of activity in the Oxfordshire property market.”
