PSAR was recently honored for writing excellence by the San Diego Press Club,
PSAR received an award in the “In-House or Employee Publications” category for recent “Voice of Real Estate” stories, an ongoing series covering the latest real estate industry trends.
In addition, PSAR was honored in the “General Writing for Internal Publications” category for a series of profile stories about PSAR members.
It was the seventh consecutive year that PSAR has been recognized for writing excellence by the San Diego Press Club.
The PSAR member profile stories have generated high readership levels and fostered closer bonds among PSAR colleagues. A frequent response to the stories among members who have worked together for years is, “I didn’t know that about you.”
It was the fourth consecutive year that PSAR has received a Press Club writing award for its “Voice of Real Estate” series.
The monthly Voice articles feature updates on local and statewide housing market conditions based on statistics from the California Association of REALTORS®, as well as other recent news about real estate and economic trends, cited from news reports.
The Voice articles also satisfy a core standard from the National Association of Realtors requiring real estate trade associations to provide realtor members with regularly scheduled information on the housing market, and real estate trends and issues.
