So far, weâ€™ve begun accepting nominations for 3 categories in the Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate: Favorite Houston Design ClichÃ©, Best Vacancy, andÂ Best Teardown. Up next: a very special prize that celebrates the unique character of our very special city — it’s called the â€œOnly in Houstonâ€ Award.
You may have noticed a few differences between Houston and many other places â€” especially when it comes to this cityâ€™s real estate landscape. This award is meant to celebrate an event, circumstance, development, or phenomenon of the past year that could only have manifested itself hereabouts. Or somewhere around hereabouts. Or maybe, okay, it happened somewhere else too, but it really seems like a Houston thing, anyway.
As usual, your spin can make the difference between a possibly dull and obvious entry and a compelling choice for the award. So think hard, reframe the ordinary to make it seem extraordinary (and consult the nominating guidelines if you need to). Then submit your nominations!
