A University College Of Estate Management alumna has been recognised for making the highest number of transactions in Yorkshire and the North West in 2018. Michelle Dobson, was crowned EGI’s Dealmaker of the Year in 2018 for Yorkshire.

Dobson, who studied on UCEM’s BSc (Hons) Real Estate Management programme, had just graduated on Saturday June 29. She is a Commercial Property Surveyor with Walker Singleton in Halifax. Dobson said: “I feel very proud to win, especially given we are an independent, partner-led, firm with a regional focus as opposed to national, city based, agents. It’s been a great achievement and I’m honoured to represent Walker Singleton who have supported me throughout my career and education with UCEM.

“Studying with UCEM has helped me develop my knowledge and skills within the property industry over the last four years. That, alongside the continued support from my peers, has ensured I have had the opportunity to develop in my career in property to its maximum potential.”



Each week, the Estates Gazette Online (EGi)  looks at a different region of the UK using Radius, a database of commercial property information which can see which company and which individual has secured the most deals over the previous 12 months. The winning company is crowned the Most Active Agent and the individual claims the Dealmaker accolade.
