The Real Deal is thrilled to announce that the publication took major honors in the National Association of Real Estate Editors 63rd annual awards, which recognize excellence in reporting, writing and editing focused on residential and commercial real estate.

The Real Deal walked away with the gold award for the “Best Commercial Trade Magazine,” with judges describing it as “very practical with striking graphics and a tremendous amount of information.”

TRD’s website also nabbed the gold award in the “Best Web Site Solely Devoted to Residential, Commercial or Financial Real Estate and/or Home Design,” with judges recognizing its depth of information, and the fact that it is both easy to navigate and easy on the eyes.

When it came to individual stories, judges recognized senior reporter Adam Pincus’ knack for enterprise reporting, awarding him the gold award for “Best Trade Magazine Report on the Commercial Real Estate Industry” for his June 2012 article “NYC’s skyscraper kings.”

“Using tax records, the reporter developed the first-ever ranking of how much money the top-ranking New York City landlords made in one year,” the judges commented. “These never-before published figures illustrated a crucial part of the real estate business in Manhattan. The story stood out because of the initiative shown by the reporter.”

Pincus, along with reporters Katherine Clarke, Guelda Voien and C.J. Hughes also received an honorable mention in the “Best Team Report” category, for their series of stories on Hurricane Sandy’s impact on New York real estate. “The reporters took a creative and innovative look at something that was not well covered,” the judges said.

Last year, The Real Deal took home five NAREE awards, and in February of this year, also bagged a general excellence award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers. TRD
