The National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE) is now accepting entries for the fourth annual Robert Bruss Real Estate Book Awards Competition. Authors of books published in 2010 in the broad field of real estate –- including finance, mortgage lending, foreclosures, investing, green building and sustainable design, as well as home buying and selling and commercial real estate — are invited to enter this prestigious contest.
The deadline to enter NAREE’s Bruss Book Awards Competition is Feb. 15, 2011.
NAREE, a non-profit association founded in 1929, will name gold, silver, and bronze award-winners. In addition, NAREE will give a special award to a first-time author. The awards, with $2,000 in cash prizes, will be presented at the 45th Annual NAREE Real Estate Journalism Conference, June 15-18, headquartered at the historic Menger Hotel in downtown San Antonio.
NAREE’s book awards are named for the late Bob Bruss, syndicated real estate columnist, prolific writer and NAREE leader. Bruss frequently wrote reviews of realty books. Meet last year’s winners:
Gold Award: Anthony Downs for “Real Estate and the Financial Crisis,” published by The Urban Land Institute.
