Haus Schwatz: Cati's DC Real Estate


My First Contribution To The Washington Post's New Real Estate Blog! And They Even Credited Active Rain!

This is going to be so exciting!

Yesterday, the Post started its new real estate blog, Where We Live, and it looks great--lots of interesting features and series, and hopefully a very lively discussion are coming up. Apart from the Post's own editors and reporters, there will be a bunch of real estate professionals writing for it, including some Rainers (such as my dear friend and colleague Pat Kennedy).

It's a great opportunity for us to be heard and to weigh in -- no more blaming the media!

My first contribution ran today--please check it out.  What an adventure!

That is absolutely fabulous.. You can't get a better feature than that.. I must ask.. when you started in Real Estate did you ever think that you would be  journalist too?? I find this entire process to be exciting in that sense. Who would have thought??

My daughter lives down in DC... One of my favorite places to visit.

Janis - thanks! I'm truly psyched :-) And in a way, blogging here has sometimes felt like a journalistic adventure, don't you think?

Geri, Fred, Tim - many thanks to you, too, for the encouragement!
