HAR in the News

The 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.

HAR was all over the news in broadcast as well as in print and online throughout late August and early to mid-September as the go-to authority for local real estate conditions in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Among the media outlets that interviewed HAR leadership and members or simply mentioned the Association were KHOU-TV/11 News, KPRC-TV/Local 2, KTRK-TV/ABC 13, KUHF/Houston Public Media, Austin American-Statesman, Houston Agent magazine, Houston Chronicle, Houston Business Journal, Inman News, RISMedia and the San Antonio Express-News. Coverage included stories about HAR.com’s Harvey Temporary Housing feature to help those displaced from flooded homes find temporary housing. HAR also provided assistance to reporters with Bloomberg News, NPR and Reuters for stories that were still in development at press time.

Special thanks to HAR Governmental Affairs co-chair Ed Wolff for taking countless interviews that tapped his expertise on flood control issues, his insights into the specific effects of flooding on the Houston real estate market as well as his personal perspectives of Harvey’s impact on his family as flood victims for the third time. Thanks, as well, to Stewart Title Chief Economist and former HAR Chairman Ted C. Jones, Ph.D. for taking multiple interviews requesting his insights into the long-term economic impact of the storm.
