UCEM student wins UK real estate award

A UCEM student was ‘overwhelmed and honoured’ after winning in her category at a UK real estate awards ceremony last week.

MSc Real Estate student, Sarah Hayford won the BPF [British Property Federation] Futures Promoting the Industry Award at the BPF Futures Tomorrow’s Leaders Awards ceremony last Thursday (2 May).

Sarah was recognised for her work in founding The Land Collective – an online platform aiming to engage young people with the property market and built environment – in winning the award which goes to someone who has brought a new idea or initiative to help change the way the business or the industry is perceived.

After winning the award, Sarah said: “I feel so overwhelmed and honoured to have won such an award! To have The Land Collective recognised in such a positive way, and to hear many compliments at the awards ceremony in relation to my work is heart-warming.

“The Land Collective team and I are very excited to see how the platform grows and develops this year, with much more in-store for our readers and followers. It feels amazing to go be going into the second half of the year on such a high!”

Sarah was one of three UCEM representatives at the awards ceremony at the Houses of Parliament with alumna, Sophie Walker and Associate Tutor, Yohance Harper nominated in categories too.
