Do we have enough categories in the Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate yet? We’ve announced 9 of them so far: Houston Neighborhood of the Year, Most Fattening Real Estate Development, Best Home Sleuth, the “Only in Houston” Award, Most Grandiose Development, Best Rebranding Effort, Best Teardown of the Year, Best Project Cancellation or Delay, and Favorite Houston Design Cliché.
Whew! That’s a lot of ground to cover. But we’ve saved the best category for last. And here it is: What was the Greatest Moment in Houston Real Estate in 2008?
Swamplot works hard every day to cover great moments in Houston real estate. That’s why we’re here. But maybe we missed a few this year. Browse through the site if it’ll help you to draw up a list of contenders; or raid your own memory banks. Then tell us what moment deserves this recognition.
A great moment is lost if there’s no one there to chronicle it or cherish it. Which is why we need your help. Send us your comments or emails describing the moments you’d like to nominate.
