The awards are judged by prestigious apartment industry experts who are known nationwide. Each nomination category is reviewed by multiple, hand-selected judges. Each judge completes their own scoring matrix, which is collectively evaluated and added up. The nominee then with the highest overall score wins the award for that category.
