Executive Director Notes

Dear NAREE.org Visitors,

Please follow us on Twitter (@NAREEnews), Instagram (instagram.com/NAREEnews), and Facebook (fb.com/NAREEnews). Look for the latest news about NAREE including sneak peaks of upcoming NAREE events and conferences. I hope you'll “like" what you see.

Besides online connectors, NAREE puts out a newsletter three times a year, an annual network directory and an annual conference program book. The NAREE News welcomes information on job changes and stories about how to cover housing and commercial real estate, and how to track down sources online. NAREE leaders write about news industry trends and tips to sharpen skills in all three of these publications.

NAREE membership is also about face-to-face contact. Members meet three times each year in a different city.

NAREE's June conference makes it easy to network with colleagues and keep abreast of real estate trends. Expect mid-year updates from real estate economists, CEOs, top home builders and brokers, and urban planners. Each NAREE conference also offers tours of real estate properties indicative of site-specific national trends, plus peer-to-peer professional development during “NAREE University."  NAREE's journalism and book awards are presented at the annual conference as well. Please pull down the Spring Conference tab to learn more about these programs and events and others like  the new mentoring program "Office Hours" and "NAREE's Meet the Press' " series of three-minute, one-on-one meetings with media members.

In the Fall, NAREE holds board installation and leadership awards dinner as members meet to cover the National Association of Realtors Convention and Expo.  

You can also join us at NAREE winter hospitality reception during the International Builders show for a snapshot of NAREE's latest programs and events and hear insights on home and design trends.

NAREE is an association of active members –– reporters, writers, columnists and editors working in the broad field of real estate --  including both staffers and freelancers working for bonafide news outlets. NAREE also offers associate membership to communications professionals and writers who work for association publications.  To join today, please pull down the Join/Renew tab.

Questions -- or to receive a complimentary digital copy of the NAREE News, please contact me anytime at nareeprograms@gmail.com. 

I look forward to hearing from you,


Mary Doyle-Kimball
NAREE Executive Director and 1994 President
