About the Circle of Excellence Awards Ceremony

The Circle of Excellence Awards Ceremony is the premier South Florida Apartment Industry awards celebration. This is THE event where we recognize apartment communities, companies, and individuals who have gone above and beyond for the success of the industry. The Circle of Excellence hosts hundreds of guests each year and is one of the largest apartment industry awards celebrations in the State of Florida. This celebratory, energizing gala is focused on honoring an industry, a lifestyle, and the hard-working professionals that help make the South Florida Apartment Industry one of the largest, fastest-growing and most successful in the nation.

Check out last year's 2018 Circle of Excellence Awards hosted at the Charles F. Dodge City Center. The event channeled a Great Gatsby theme and welcomed over 800 attendees to celebrate an evening of success in the South East Florida multifamily housing industry.

Awards Information

Bringing back the improved, faster nomination process!

The Circle of Excellence Awards has 28 different nomination categories ranging from individual awards to apartment community/company awards to vendors categories. Each nomination category requires different supporting documentation. Nominations submitted without the supporting documents will not be eligible for judging or able to receive an award.

Judging Process 

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.
