Fair Housing Coach Named 2015 Best Real Estate Newsletter

On June 26, Fair Housing Coach was awarded First Place, 2015 Best Newsletter, by the National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE), at their annual conference in Miami, Fla.

The judges, a panel of experts from the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, singled out Contributing Editor Carol Johnson Perkins’ articles on how housing providers can avoid discriminating against:

  • Victims of domestic violence, in violation of both the Fair Housing Act and the recently reauthorized Violence Against Women Act (see the February 2014 issue);
  • Applicants and residents who request accommodations for their disabilities (see the November 2014 issue); and
  • Students, even when the community is a “student housing provider” (see the September 2014 issue).

NAREE members include real estate reporters from across the country, at daily newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times, and at various magazines, newsletters, and websites that specialize in providing real estate-related information to businesses, professionals, and consumers.
