CoStar has served as a primary news source for the commercial real estate industry for more than two decades. Our industry-focused reporting covers the many different facets of the industry, from the latest major transactions, to emerging trends in brokerage and new development, to financing and the capital markets.
Over the years, CoStar has won a number of awards for its news coverage. Most recently, the National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE) selected three series of news reports published by CoStar to receive awards of excellence in its annual Journalism Awards announced in June 2013. The awards, which recognize excellence in reporting, writing and editing stories about commercial and residential real estate, were selected by a panel of judges from the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University. NAREE is led by President Kris Hudson and Executive Director Mary Doyle-Kimball.
