The Real Deal’s editorial team won 12 journalism awards from the National Association of Real Estate Editors this year, including a gold award for best residential trade magazine and a silver award for best commercial trade magazine. The haul marks a personal best for the 13-year-old publication.

“The judges were impressed by the high volume of editorial content,” read the judges’ note for TRD’s gold award. “This publication sets a high bar for its competitors.”

TRD reporter Konrad Putzier won the Ruth Ryon Gold Award for best overall entry by a young journalist, as well as a gold award for best breaking news story for his November article exposing that City Hall’s loan to the Blackstone Group in return for affordability commitments at Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village was actually more of a cash gift. He also won a silver award for best residential, mortgage, or financial real estate magazine story for his behind-the-scenes look into the sale of Stuy Town, a bronze award for best online commercial real estate story for his article exposing how crowdfunding startup Fundrise cherry-picks its numbers, and an honorable mention in the category best international real estate story for his October piece on how New York’s real estate market stacks up in global competition.

Rich Bockmann, also a reporter, won a silver award in the category for best breaking news story for his May 2015 story that revealed Tishman Speyer chief Rob Speyer is the unnamed “Developer 2” mentioned in the criminal complaint against former New York House speaker Sheldon Silver.

Mark Maurer, TRD’s associate web editor, won a bronze award in the category for best commercial trade magazine story for his profile of secretive Brooklyn developer Simon Dushinsky, and an honorable mention in the category for best collection of work by an individual covering commercial real estate.

Reporter E.B. Solomont won a bronze award in the category for best series for her articles exploring the Chinese investment boom in New York’s real estate market. And reporter Kathryn Brenzel won an honorable mention in the category best architecture story for her November piece that analyzed whether wooden skyscraper construction has a future in New York.

Founded in 1929, NAREE is the leading association of U.S. real estate journalists with more than 650 members. The awards were announced Friday night during NAREE’s annual conference in New Orleans. — TRD
