Last Call for Nominations

Only 2 categories remain open for nominations in this year’s Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. But they’re the biggies: 2010’s Neighborhood of the Year and Greatest Moment in Houston Real Estate. If you’ve got a great suggestion for either award, you have until midnight tonight to get it in. And here’s a tip: Sure, it’s nice to get all those standard one-word nominations — like, say, “Katy!” But to make it onto the official ballot, a nominee needs something more: Your sharp and quotable explanation for why it deserves that particular award.

One by one, we’re posting the official slates of nominees for all the other categories. Four have been posted and opened for voting so far: Favorite Houston Design Clich√©, Best Teardown, Parking Lot of the Year, and Drive-Thru of the Year. Next up: Walmart of the Year and the Washington Ave Award.
