Category 1: Best Breaking News Report
Gold Award: Matthew Goldstein and Jennifer Ablan Reuters
Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “The reporters examined a new approach to the U.S. housing crisis: allowing government officials to use their eminent domain powers to restructure home mortgages. As the writers noted, this long-time government power may be a new approach to addressing underwater mortgages. It is written in such a way that a complex process is explained clearly.”
Silver Award: Eric PryneSeattle Times
Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “This reporter broke the story about Amazon.com’s purchase of three Seattle downtown blocks to build its headquarters. This was an example of solid and accurate reporting amid an atmosphere of rumors and misinformation with the information for the story dug up through interviews and the searching of city databases. The writing is clear and provides great context.”
Bronze Award: Ken HarneyInman News
Judges’ Comment on Bronze Award: “Ken Harney broke the story about a form of home equity protection insurance that was suddenly yanked off the market. The story was obviously based on a lot of legwork and keen sourcing among regulators and insurers. It is written clearly, cleanly, and concisely.”
Honorable Mention: Carrie RossenfeldGlobeSt.com
Judges’ Comment on Honorable Mention: “This reporter broke the news about the sale of an iconic Los Angeles property—the parking lot of Dodgers Stadium—despite attempts by sources to keep it out of the press. It was a real scoop in LA, where citizens are particularly interested in their professional sports teams.”
Category 2: Best Investigative Report or Investigative Series
Gold Award: Andrea BrambilaInman News
Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “This story uncovered some of the problems associated with the National Association of Realtors’ property data base that is used by the group’s one million members as well as many consumers. The reporter obtained information using internal NAR documents and interviews, making for a compelling and disturbing story.”
Silver Award: David MigoyaDenver Post
Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “These enterprising stories discussed pending legislative action to make sure that foreclosures were legal and enforceable. The work revealed a number of problems with how foreclosures were handled in Colorado in a system that is unique to the U.S. The writing is clearly page-one material.”
Bronze Award: Mark HeschmeyerCoStar News

Judges’ Comment on Bronze Award: “This story examined how the collapse of the housing industry contributed to a spike in farm prices, particularly in the cornbelt and the northern plains. Relying on exhaustive legwork and interviews, the reporter detailed the serious, long-term impact of this unexpected increase in a very readable fashion.”

Honorable Mention: Amy Wolff SorterGlobeSt.com
Judges’ Comment on Honorable Mention: “This story illustrated the dilemma of a neighborhood that was dominated by sexually-oriented business and what happened when these businesses moved on: the neighborhood began to draw attention from commercial developers. It is written in a brisk and engaging manner that holds a reader’s attention.”

Category 4: Best Series by an Individual
Gold Award: Randyl DrummerCoStar News
Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “The reporter’s stories reported on the interesting phenomenon of the gap between strong and weak mall properties, which prompted a sell-off of weaker properties, leading to the redevelopment or the repurposing of some of them. The question is who wants to buy a dying mall, and these stories answered that. The writing is clear and avoids jargon and explains the developments in a way that both lay people and developers can understand.”
Silver Award: Justin SumnerCoStar News
Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “These stories focused on the idea that ‘green’ buildings appeal to tenants but lenders may be slow to finance these type of improvements. This is a catch-22 facing the real estate industry, and the reporter examines it in a concise and reader friendly way.”

Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “In the contest’s largest category, this reporter stood out with stories about expensive homes of college head football coaches, a reclusive billionaire and his huge amounts of property, and more and more city owners building glass homes. The article about the football coaches was particularly noteworthy because of the amount of detail and the interesting writing. As for the glass houses story, it stood out because it was about an unreported national trend.”

Silver Award: Matt Hudgins, Freelance/New York Times

Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “This is the work of a journalist who does truly professional reporting.  A good example was his story on real estate development in Austin, the Texas capital.  He profiled the boom that has drawn a lot of young professionals to the city.”

Judges’ Comment on Bronze Award: “Her stories had one dominant theme: trends in commercial real estate. For instance, there were articles about the competition by developers for outlet malls and attempts by the commercial real estate industry to diversify and update its image.  These stories are interesting commentaries on the industry and the American culture.”
Honorable Mention: Michelle Jarboe McFeeCleveland Plain Dealer
Judges’ Comment on Honorable Mention: “The reporter’s stories focused on the color and culture of the Cleveland community, including a story about a low-profile young landlord. Her writing is clear, lively, and concise as she writes about local issues.”
Category 6: Best Home & Design Feature
Gold Award: Lauren BealeLos Angeles Times
Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “This was a new angle on the rich and the famous: how they are building more and more bathrooms in expensive houses as a status symbol and a style statement. The reporter looked closely at the home of Adrian Beltre, a former member of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and noted that his home has sixteen bathrooms, which his wife said are all used. The reporter provided an excellent example of what all newspaper reporters are told: Keep the reader turning the page.”
Silver Award: Alyssa AbkowitzWall Street Journal

Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “This story demonstrated how more and more individual owners of resort properties are jettisoning traditional chalet-style ski homes. Instead, modern designs, both in the U.S. and outside of it, dominate the field of ski resort architecture by individual owners. The writing is brisk, direct, colorful, and descriptive.”

Bronze Award: Kathy OrtonWashington Post

Judges’ Comment on Bronze Award: “The story examined the question of whether sustainable housing can be affordable. The reporter worked on the story for several months and wrote about a collaboration of a university, a non-profit agency, and a government agency in the District of Columbia. It is an engaging and smartly written account.”

Honorable Mention: Polyana da CostaBankrate.com
Judges’ Comment on Honorable Mention: “This was a light look at renovation disasters, such as trapping a cat beneath a kitchen floor, and how to avoid them. It was a humorous warning for perspective remodelers.”
Category 7: Best Residential Real Estate Report in a Daily Newspaper
Gold Award: Jamie Smith HopkinsBaltimore Sun
Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “This story illustrated the paradox of unsold Baltimore condominiums that are taxed as if they are empty lots, playing a role in the city losing a large amount of much-needed tax money. It is gracefully written, clearly structured, and packs a punch.”
Silver Award: Sanjay BhattSeattle Times

Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “This examined the ripple effect of foreclosed homes and how they ultimately effect nearly everyone in the Seattle area. This took a novel approach to a topic that has been written many times and did it well.”

Bronze Award: Jeff CollinsOrange County Register

Honorable Mention: Sue DoerflerArizona Republic
Judges’ Comment on Honorable Mention: “This reporter looked at a movement in a number of places in the country to save Frank Lloyd Wright homes from being torn down. In the Phoenix area, however, the homes may be demolished. The story took a ‘bigger picture’ look at preservation issues nationwide, delving interestingly into issues such as home-owners’ and investors’ rights and government preservation mandates.”
Category 8: Best Mortgage or Financial Real Estate Report in a Daily Newspaper
Gold Award: Pete CareySan Jose Mercury News

Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “The reporter chronicled a house stuck with more than a dozen adults as well as pets; the tenants were unaware that the house was foreclosed and they faced eviction. Using objective and highly interesting reporting, the story laid out the details and in effect told how the foreclosed house became ‘a mini-motel.’”

Silver Award: Nick TimiraosWall Street Journal

Silver Award: Eric PryneSeattle Times

Honorable Mention: Matt Hudgins, Freelance/New York Times
Judges’ Comment on Honorable Mention: “This story outlined an interesting trend in New York City: partial-interest deals. This topic had apparently been overlooked by other reporters covering the city’s real estate but is a growing trend. The reporter did a good job of explaining a somewhat complex issue.”

Gold Award: Alicia WallaceBoulder Daily Camera

Judges’ Comment on Gold Award: “A spectacular dissection of the rise and fall of a Seattle-area real estate king, this story showed not only how he built his empire but how it collapsed, resulting in him finally being apprehended by the French police after sixteen months in hiding. The story outlined the ripple effects of his actions across the U.S. It is crisply written in a high-impact style.”
Silver Award: Daniel DugganCrain’s Detroit Business
Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “This story, which relied heavily on public documents, was an in-depth examination of a Detroit property empire. It revealed that although many of the properties were foreclosed, the investors still made a profit. The writing is clear, direct, and explanatory.”
Bronze Award: J.K. DineenSan Francisco Business Times
Judges’ Comment on Bronze Award: “The story focused on how huge development projects in the San Francisco bay area created labor shortages. This was a ‘bigger picture’ story that discussed the effect of the recent recession on building and real estate and how one region was different from others.”

Silver Award: Matt PowerGreen Builder Magazine
Judges’ Comment on Silver Award: “This intriguing report examined an element in the building environment that few people consider: the makeup of soil and how important it is to find good building sites and carefully selecting areas for lawns and gardens. Soil is an often overlooked component in evaluating the value of a property, and the writer is to be congratulated on looking at this topic.”
Bronze Award: Justin HilleyHousingWire
