HAR provided assistance to NBC Nightly News With Lester Holt for a story about how consumers around the country were making big-ticket purchases ahead of an anticipated Federal Reserve interest rate hike. Within an hour of the network’s call, HAR lined up a consumer that had purchased a home in The Woodlands after years of renting. The home buyer was a client of one of HAR Chair Cindy Hamann’s agents, so special thanks to Cindy and her agent for the speedy response that enabled us to promote the Houston real estate market in a major network broadcast on March 15.

Ralph Bivins’ Realty News Report (RNR) blog interviewed HAR Chair Cindy Hamann and former HAR Chairman Shad Bogany for a feature story about the effects proximity to golf courses have on home values. The article was published on March 8.

These stories and more are available in the HAR Online Newsroom at as well as in HAR Connect.
