HAR Board member Veronica Mullenix shared her expertise in the Katy market with The (Katy) Rancher reporter Zach Haverkamp for his August 29 story about how real estate development is extending into areas north and west of Katy/I-10.
On August 30, the Houston Chronicle reported on HAR’s newly elected 2014 Board of Directors, featuring a color photo of incoming Chair Chaille Ralph.
KTRK-TV/13 Eyewitness News became the first Houston media outlet to receive HAR’s newly developed Neighborhood “Hotness” Index. Consumer reporter Jeff Ehling interviewed HAR Chair-elect Chaille Ralph about how the index was developed and spoke to Board member Tim Surratt about what is actually making homes in some neighborhoods sell better than others.
HAR facilitated REALTOR® interviews for KRIV-TV/Fox 26 News reporter Greg Groogan, who wanted to localize a national report stating that black home ownership stands at 43 percent – its lowest level since 1995. His story aired in the 5 and 9 p.m. news broadcasts on September 10.
