You spoke. We listened.
In response to recent reader feedback, we're making some changes to our flagship magazine. In fact, you'll likely notice the most apparent change on the cover of the forthcoming January 2020 issue: Tierra Grande will go simply by TG, a nickname we've used in-house for years.
But that's just the beginning.
If you're an agent or a broker (as most of our subscribers are), you'll see a wider variety of articles intended especially for you. For example, the January issue will dig into the military's influence on Texas housing markets, broker succession planning, Texas “micro markets," and the relocation of a Corpus Christi neighborhood because of the new Harbor Bridge construction.
We'll introduce a back-page Q&A column by former Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) General Counsel Kerri Lewis and former TREC Chair Avis Wukasch. “Practically Speaking" will address common issues licensees encounter in day-to-day business operations.
After receiving the October issue, one subscriber noticed our usual black boxes containing a one-paragraph summary were no longer at the end of each article. “Did you take away my 'Takeaways'?" she asked. We did not. We simply moved them to the beginning of each article in hopes of catching more readers' eyes. Same summarization, but new location and no black box labeled “The Takeaway."
What's not changing? The high-quality photos and design you enjoy and, most importantly, the reliable research you've come to expect from the Real Estate Center.
This is a work in progress, so more refinements are on the way. We'll be anxious to hear what you think.
