I have totally forgotten to tell y’all that I am now a contributor to Forbes.com. Started a while back, and I already have a few stories in the hopper. This is my first, a primer on North Texas real estate: 12 Things you Need to Know About North Texas Real Estate. Let me know what you think!
Whatever I publish, Forbes gets first, of course, and can later be shared on CandysDirt.com. We spent a wonderful evening last week in Vegas at NAREE with Forbes.com editor Samantha Sharf, and I was super impressed with what Forbes is creating to beef up national and international real estate coverage. Very much boots on the ground. The other contributors I met: Joe Gose who has been covering real estate and other biz topics for 25 years, based in Kansas City, writes for The New York Times, Shopping Centers Today, Urban Land and France Media. I’ve seen Joe at many a NAREE conference, as I have Cynthia Lescalleet, a fellow Texan from Houston who writes for Swamplot and many other publications. All our work will be online, of course, because that’s where Forbes.com is smartly focusing resources.
What will I be writing for Forbes.com? Celebrity real estate, of course, but many profiles and snapshots of the North Texas real estate market. Or shall I say, climate. I will be pestering major Dallas developers, movers and shakers for sit-down interviews, AKA good, old-fashioned, look-me-in-the-eye journalism. I’ll be covering trends, the unusual, all things that make us the greatest real estate market in the universe. And I’m very open to suggestions as well, so holler at me: you know my number, should be in your phone — email@example.com.
