Swamplot’s sponsor today is Houston’s own Realty News Report, an online publication covering commercial and residential real estate markets in Texas. Thanks for the support!
If you’re hungry for Houston real estate news — and gee, if you’re reading Swamplot, it’s likely you are — you should be reading Realty News Report. But . . . who are we to judge?
Realty News Report’s editor, Ralph Bivins, came back from New Orleans earlier this month loaded down with an unprecedented 5 awards — 2 golds, a silver, and 2 bronzes in various categories — in the National Association of Real Estate Editors’ 66th annual Journalism Awards. What for?
“This writer covers Houston real estate like a glove,” the panel of expert judges from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism wrote of Bivins’s work. “Whether he is writing about new building construction methods, the future of the Astrodome, or the acquisition of the land and the building of a new campus of ExxonMobil, he gives readers new insights into area real estate. He is a must read.”
Bivins’s competitors for the NAREE awards were journalists from the Wall St. Journal, Bloomberg, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other well-known publications. Before founding Realty News Report, he covered real estate for the Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News for decades.
