HAR assisted CNBC real estate reporter Diana Olick with her October 20 story about how Houston’s September home sales rebound fueled an uptick in real estate activity nationally.

Former HAR and TAR Chairman Shad Bogany interviewed with KTRK-TV/ABC13 reporter Pooja Lodhia on October 11 to lend perspective to HAR data showing an all-time high in home rentals following Hurricane Harvey.

The Houston Chronicle ran a large spread in its Sunday, October 8 real estate section announcing winners of HAR’s 2017 Young Professionals Network (YPN) ‘20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Real Estate Awards,’ along with a black and white group photo. The article featured bios of the recipients. It was also published with the color version of the photo on chron.com online.

On October 3, the Houston Business Journal ran an online feature about HAR’s 2017 YPN ‘20 Under 40 Rising Stars in Real Estate Awards,’ featuring color photos of the individual winners that HAR provided.

HAR provided localized housing data and facilitated expert interviews for a series of Community Impact Newspaper stories published in early November profiling trends in housing sub-markets from the Lake Houston area to Katy and Pearland.
