The Houston Chronicle ran a large spread in its Sunday, October 2 real estate section, announcing winners of HAR’s 2016 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 that were provided by HAR. It was also published with the color version of the photo on online.

The Houston Business Journal also featured a large write-up about HAR’s 2016 YPN honorees in its September 30 email newsletter/online edition, featuring the color group photo.

HAR’s incredible achievement also garnered coverage in the October 1 edition of the Galveston County Daily News.
