In order to even the playing field between nominees in varying markets, the editors have developed the following methodology: All nominees will be given a score for the three fields on the form—Total number, total dollar volume and total square footage of deals closed in 2016. The sum of the three scores will determine their final rank.
- All transactions represented in the totals submitted must have closed between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016, and all nominees must have been directly involved with the transactions. If submitting a team, all members must have been directly involved with all the deals submitted for the entire group.
- For verification purposes, all nominees must provide a list of all transactions contributing to their 2016 year-end figures. Partial lists—such as blacked-out borrower/lender information—are acceptable, as long as the number and value of transactions is evident. Inability to provide this will result in disqualification. NOTE: This is for verification only and will remain fully confidential
- All entries must be electronically submitted via this form. Late or incomplete entries will not be considered.
