Hugh F. Kelly, professor of real estate at New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate, will deliver a housing market forecast at the event, which runs from June 11-14 and is expected to bring “staff and freelance journalists from the Los Angeles Times to the Chicago Tribune, the Washington Post and New York Times to tweet, blog, report and write about real estate,” said NAREE Executive Director Mary Doyle-Kimball in a statement.
“NAREE University” sessions will provide peer-to-peer skill building workshops with insights from journalists with the Wall Street Journal, Newsday, Unique Homes magazine, Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post.
