Scotsman Guide, the leading resource for mortgage originators, has announced that its commercial edition was honored by the National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE). The national mortgage magazine won second place in the 58th annual journalism awards’ “Best Mortgage/Financial Real Estate Magazine” category.
Upon review of Scotsman Guide’s February, November and December 2007 commercial editions, NAREE judges wrote: “This publication provided a wealth of valuable material to those in the mortgage business. It made good use of charts and color along with well-written and informative articles, making it a necessity for lenders.”
The award was announced at the NAREE Spring Real Estate Journalism Conference on May 9 in Dallas.
NAREE (naree.org) was founded in 1929 and has more than 700 members in North America. Its active members cover real estate, as well as home and design, for consumer and trade publications. Its Journalism Awards program has recognized excellence in reporting, writing and editing since 1949.
