Find out the winners of this year’s Top of the Props
When working on our recently published magazine – The Measure – we decided to launch our first ever awards.
Aptly called Top of the Props, we wanted to find the very best companies, projects and individuals who are leading the way in the PropTech industry.
Our judges had a difficult time choosing between lots of really great applications, but they finally came to a unanimous verdict for each of our eight categories.
A big well done to all of the very deserving winners – find out more about the great work they’re doing below!

This category is all about celebrating the person who’s always trucking away in the background making sure everything gets done, and who better to call out than Peter Brooks.
