he Houston Association of REALTORS® is making headlines! Here’s a look at some of the media coverage our organization has received over the past few weeks.

Community Impact Newspaper
Houston Business Journal (online and print editions)
Houston Chronicle (online and print editions as well as
Prime Property real estate blog)
Houston Community Newspapers
KHOU-TV (11 News)

Community Impact Newspaper invited HAR Chair Chaille Ralph to a coffee/roundtable/interview with the full editorial staff in March in an effort to learn about HAR as well as Chaille’s real estate background, and to find out how different neighborhoods across the Houston market are performing. The resulting feature appeared in all the publication’s Houston neighborhood editions as well as online on April 2.
Various local and industry publications caught early wind of HAR’s statewide property listing initiative and published stories about it. HAR is planning to issue a news release formally announcing the service once Beta testing of the site has concluded and it is determined to be ready to go live.
These stories and more are available in the HAR Online Newsroom at www.har.com/newsroom as well as in HAR Connect.
