HAR Chair Kenya Burrell-VanWormer was a guest on the May 23 edition of the live, call-in talk show “Houston Matters” on Houston Public Media / KUHF 88.7 FM, discussing Houston’s robust post-Harvey real estate market.

HAR Chair Kenya Burrell-VanWormer was quoted about the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act for a cover story in the June 4 edition of Houston Agent Magazine. Kenya explained, “It’s almost hard to imagine how we would continue to exist without the Fair Housing Act…[which] has had a profound impact on our industry, our country, and the communities that we live and work in. We have come a long way, but still have challenges to overcome with equality in housing.”

Houston Chronicle (Chron.com) digital producer Fernando Alfonso III cited HAR data in his “5 of the most expensive homes sold in Houston in May” online feature that published on June 6. The piece included full-color photos of the properties courtesy of the listing agents/brokerages that are credited in the report.

On June 12, Houston Business Journal web producer Jen Para took online readers on a virtual tour of the 10 most expensive homes sold in May 2018 using data provided by HAR. Her feature was also complemented by color photos of the properties courtesy of the listing agents/brokerages cited in the report.
