"There are many awards where people are honoured for their life's work or for putting together a great project. We are putting the focus on young professionals from the second row who will determine what happens in the industry," explains Frederik Walbaum. Along with Dominik Talhof and Michael Urmann, he is one of the initiators who want to create a network of "Most Aspiring Talents" (MAT) in the real estate industry with the award.
