I’m not normally one to toot my own horn, but in this case…toot, toot, toot.
My colleages and I were named the world’s most powerful property people by Global edge, an online strategy consulting firm based in the U.K.
Global edge says its ranking methodology involved tallying the Google searches for terms such as “real estate blog.” Darn, if we didn’t beat out Yahoo, MSN, and CNN’s real estate sites.
Thanks Global edge. Thanks Hot Property readers! We think you are the truly powerfull people.
BusinessWeek editors Chris Palmeri, Prashant Gopal and Peter Coy chronicle the highs and lows of the housing and mortgage markets on their Hot Property blog. In print and online, the Hot Property team first wrote about the potential downside of lenders pushing riskier, "option ARM" mortgages and the rise in mortgage fraud back in 2005—well ahead of many other media outlets. In 2008, Hot Property bloggers finished #1 in a ranking of the world's top 100 "most powerful property people" by the British real estate website Global edge. Hot Property was named among the 25 most influential real estate blogs of 2007 by Inman News.
